Hello All, Updated to version 2.0 6/25/2006 Updated to version 1.1 5/25/2006 version 1.1 had 62 downloads version 1.0 had 45 downloads Screenshots here: http://forums.civfanatics.com/member.php?u=38089 Download here. From the readme: Flying Mod by Roger Bacon version 2.0 (6/25/2006) As of Version 2.0 this mod now includes Dale's "Missile Mod", "Bombardment Mod", and "Mad Nukes Mod", along with enhancements I have made to those mods (setter functions mostly). THE MOD: This mod allows users to add a <bFlying> tag to any unit they want. A unit that has <bFlying>1</bFlying> will be able to move over both water and land. There is no need to, nor should you, change the domain type. It should be DOMAIN_LAND just as before. You can still limit a uint to coastal water squares by adding the following to its description (same as the galley unit). <TerrainImpassables> <TerrainImpassable> <TerrainType>TERRAIN_OCEAN</TerrainType> <bTerrainImpassable>1</bTerrainImpassable> </TerrainImpassable> </TerrainImpassables> Also, you should add the following AI tag to the unit so it will attack water units. <UnitAI> <UnitAIType>UNITAI_ATTACK_SEA</UnitAIType> <bUnitAI>1</bUnitAI> </UnitAI> Version 2.0 update: Dale's Bombard mod: allows a unit to bombard targets at range Dale's Mad Nukes Mod: allows players to pre-target their nukes Dale's Missile Mod: Allows a unit to be defined as a missle. Missile units die after one round of combat My changes from Dale's mods: Missiles can no longer do recon or transfer missions. Missiles don't fly out to a ship to re-arm it when it runs out. Missiles have to be loaded when the ship is in port. PYTHON Extentions: bool isFlying() returns true if the unit can fly, false otherwise void setFlying(bool newValue) enables a unit to fly or disables its ability to fly. With these functiosn you can control individually on hte unit level what can fly and what can't. So, for example you could make a fly spell and enable its targets to fly. Or you could disable an individual gunship's ability to fly. Update 2.0 Added new Python commands: void CvUnit::setDCMBombValue(bool bNewBombardValue) gives or removes a unit's ranged bombardment capability. If you give a unit bombad value be sure to give it a range as well. void CvUnit::setDCMBombRange(int bNewBombardRange) sets a unit's ranged bombardment range to bNewBombardRange) void CvUnit::setDCMMissile(bool bNewMissileValue) sets or removes the unit's status as a missile. Good for creating Kamikaze's mid-game. void CvUnit::setAirRange(int bNewAirRange) Sets the unit's air range. If you make a plane a Kamikaze you probably should double its range as well. From Dale's mods: bool CvUnit::getDCMBombard() returns true if a unit has ranged bombard capability int CvUnit::getDCMBombRange() const returns a unit's ranged bombardment range bool CvUnit::getDCMMissile() const returns true if the unit is a missile unit - CyUnit::getDCMMad() returns true if nuke has a target - CyUnit::getDCMMadPlot() returns the target plot or NULL - CyUnit::getDCMPlotOwner() returns the owner of the target or NO_PLAYER (-1) - CyPlayer::getDCMIncoming() returns the number of incoming targets (own cities targetted by enemys) - CyPlayer::getDCMOutgoing() returns the number of your nukes with targets - CyPlayer::getDCMMadDeter() returns the value of the AI's MAD deterent level - CyPlayer::setDCMMadDeter(int value) sets the AI's MAD deterent level THE XML You must put the CIV4UnitSchema.xml in your My Documents\My Games\Civ4\CustomAssets\xml\units folder. I have included the XML entry for the gunship. You can copy this one over your own gunship entry or just make the changes mentioned above. Update 2.0 Added new unit "Tomakawk" missile and "SSBN" sub. There is also a Python script that will load two tomahawk missiles on your sub every trun it is in port (up to the limit of 8). I did this because missiles shouldn't take a whole turn to build since cities can only build one unit a turn. Tomahawk graphics by Snafusmith. I made the button. Snafusmith. also made an Ohio class SSBN whoulc whould be better for the SSBN than the stock sub but I had problems getting it to display properly with the missiles loaded so, be default, the SSBN included with this mod uses the regular sub graphics. New XML tags for units <bFlying>1</bFlying> Lets a uint move over land and water From Dale's mods <bDCMBombard>1</bDCMBombard> Allows a unit to make ranged bombardments <iDCMBombRange>3</iDCMBombRange> Defines the max range a unit can bombard <bDCMMissile>1</bDCMMissile> Defines the unit as a missile unit. Missile units die after one round of combat. "Missile" doesn't have to eb a real missile. It could be a suicide bomber, Kamikaze, or anything else that you want to be suicidal. THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN DLLs There are two seperate DLLs included. One is the FlyingOnly mod. The other combines the Flying mod with my "Borders over Water" mod ,my "Three-square Radius Cities" mod, and my "AlwaysWar" mod. The Flying-only mod has not been updated to version 2.0 at this time. That is planned for the future. Copy the DLL of your choice to your My Documents\My Games\Civ4\CustomAssets\ folder. BONUS I have also modded the game so that real air units (DOMAIN_AIR) that have more than one movement point can do multiple missions per turn. Currently none of the air units in Civ have more than one movement point so this won't change your game any unless you make a unit with more than one movement point. This could represent, for example, an advanced plane like the F-15 that can target and engage multiple threats at a time. BONUS2 Added combat zoom mod. In vanilla civ the option to zoom in on battles only applies to battles where you are the attacker. Now if you have the camera zoom option enables it will work for battles where you are the attacker or battles where you are the defender. BONUS AlwaysWar Changed the option GAMEOPTION_ALWAYS_WAR so that EVERYONE is always at war with everyone they meet. In vanilla civ using that option means that everyone is at war with the human player but the AIs still work together as normal. Update 2.0 BONUS WONDER A new world wonder "Lindbergh's trans-Atlantic crossing" has been added. The civ that completes it will have 2 added to the range of their air units. No new graphics at this time but someone on the forum is working on it and it should be available shortly. BONUS (LIMIT?) Air units doing a rebase mission are limited to 2 * range instead of being able to teleport anywhere. SOURCE CODE All of the *.h and *.cpp files are the source code. Non-modders can just ignore those. To find just the Flying mod changes search for "Flying Mod" and "FlyingMod". Sorry about that. I didn't realize I had put a space in some of the comments and not in others. Enjoy, Roger Bacon Version History 1.0 5/20/2006 Initial release 1.1 5/25/2006 Corrected the "Flying only dll" - it actually had all the features still in it.
