    Well, if A upgrades to B, with no upgrade unit command, when B becomes available, you can't build A, but you can't upgrade it either. So, it clears out the build menu, which I personally think is good.

    Ah yes... good point... I hadn't thought of that. That actually is a very good idea. I might have to make some changes in my mod then. In fact, if you just wanted to make such and such unit unavailable after a certain tech, you can have it "upgrade" to something that might not have anything to do with it. Interesting.

    It's very useful in my opinion... I don't check the upgrade unit button to any mechanized units (tanks, artillery, aircrafts etc.) because you can't really upgrade them in real life.

    And of course elephant units don't have it, because you can't upgrade them to horse units.

    I have it:D

    In fact I have all Dom's elephant and camel units, but I haven't had time to add them to game yet. You know, have to play a little sometimes;)

    But In-game when i bombarding with it i.e. to the west it turns to southwest... can you fix it?
    PS: And this is the matter with the SIEGE QUINQUEREME too...

    I think you should check if the 'rotate before attack' -ability is selected with this unit. It shouldn't be.

    Very cool unit, good job.
    BTW, the Hellenistic period was basically greeces 'Golden Age", just incase you were wondering....

    You've been playing too much Age of Mythology :p

    A Helepolis is very difficult to move (takes more than 100 men to move it at any rate) ;)

    Btw, given you revived this thread, i wonder where Aaglo is now...
