    Uh uh; it should be in Modern Units, according to the definition (1900 - present) in the database. The database organization is something of a thorn in my side; some makers of military units have made a regular habit of sticking anything before 1930 (and even a few more modern units!) into the Industrial age database in order to keep separate their WWI & WW2 units. This means inevitably that someone looking for, say Napoleonic units has to wade through page after page of Biplanes. I like biplanes as much, maybe more than the next guy, but it makes the database unnecessarily difficult to use, and the category designation meaningless. Imploring the aforementioned unit makers to change their ways (and I've tried) is a masochistic exercise in futility.

    IMHO, there should be separate WWI and WW2 era categories in the database, due to the popularity and sheer number of units that have been made for each. I mean, it's like my encyclopedia: when the volume "S" got too bloated, the publishers divided it into 'S - Si' and 'Sj - Sz'. Problem solved. Surely it couldn't be that difficult to do on a website.

    Anyway, it would be easier to find the farm truck in Modern Units, I think. :cool:

    OK.. I moved the unit back to "Other Units" as I had it to begin with. It is not a Modern Unit by any definition and Other Units fits best.

    A Ford pickup that runs that well clearly belongs in the Fantasy Units section.

    Perhaps it should go in the Ancient downloads section... because they are just not that common nowadays anymore :mischief:

    ;)
