    I've completed research project but I cannot build any of them in cities with land factory. What is needed in order to build them? (v37, 1939scenario)

    Anyone know the answer to this? Should I have been able to construct these tanks after research project was completed?

    I've been having problems with the firefly too.

    I'm no expert on SQL, but I looked the SQL folder and the file NewUnitsTanks.SQL and I think I found an error.

    The unit type is UNIT_TANK_2_C and thats the value it inserts, but under INSERT INTO Civilisation_UnitClassOverrides it inserts the unit type as UNIT_TANK_2_B.

    I don't know if this is deliberate or not, or if it is the actual error, and I can't test it out as I deleted my save file by accident a while ago. But if anyone could try it out it might be the error.

    I've completely changed the way units are defined in my development version of the mod, so I can't test that correction too, but yep that could be it.

    I can't promise that it will be fixed, as all units will have to be tested again in next version :D

    (that's why I plan for a longer beta than usual.)

    Ok then i'll wait until new version is available for Beta and I'll retest it.

    I've tested this on a UK save and changing the 'B' to a 'C' does work and I can now build fireflys.
