Again, there may well be a different way to do it by now.

I haven't implemented a "carrier" module, yet. However, you'll want to replace
Code:
unit.type.flags & 1<<12 == 1<<12
with
Code:
gen.isCarryAir(unit.type)
Code:
--object.uCarrier.flags = specialNumbers.defaultCarrierFlags
gen.giveCarryAir(object.uCarrier)
Code:
--object.uCarrier.flags = specialNumbers.doNotCarryCarrierFlags
gen.removeCarryAir(object.uCarrier)

From what I remember, there will be an issue if a non-carrier-user unit attacks a loaded carrier, since, without the carrier flag, a carrier/aircraft stack will act as an air protected stack. In Over the Reich, we just made the munitions carrier users, but that won't work here.

If each nation has a distinct aircraft carrier unit type, then you can remove the carry air flag only from the unit corresponding to the active tribe. There might be a better solution, but I can't think of one at the moment.

Hi Curt,

One thing I forgot to mention in my play test is I believe you forgot to include the TANK.wav file in either of your Sound folders. As per you rules.txt @SOUNDS section:

Code:
@SOUNDS
...
TANK.wav      ; Medium Tank
...

As a consequence, the 'Medium Tank' unit makes no sound when attacking.

I'll add that to the list, thanks!

Right now, I am having a lot of hell trying to make the extra (ToTPP) techs work, as no matter what I do, CIV2 is crashing.
Overlords worked fine with 4 of the extra techs beyond tech 99, but now I suspect there is a bug somewhere.
Big list of data in rules.txt to search through, I am sure I will get to the bottom of this mystery...!

You've probably already thought of or done this, but I'd set up the post Prof. Garfield did with all the XAE XYE whatever and put it in notepad and just go through your rules one by one with them. Copy what you have in rules and search for it in notepad until you find one that doesn't match. These new techs are great but they're going to be much more difficult to notice issues with than the tried and true so I'd anticipate many of us encounter this issue.

Yep - I managed to load the save after reverting to vanilla rules, then I performed the time-tested method of dropping in 10 techs at a time into Rules.txt,
loading the save each time to check for any crashes...And guess what? No crashes at all...I maybe fixed the error unawares when I reorganised the techs,
due to me forgetting to assign one tech to the Panther II...Main thing is I defeated the crash demon, and now can work on the new unit stats! :D

UPDATE!

Today I finally implemented the new extended tech tree and units into the scenario without errors.
I have also added these dozens of new lines into Lua Object/Canbuild settings and wiped out all bugs.

It's time now to remake and add in the new events. These will include random attacks for AI only,
and different invasion unit spawns for the Player and Civ AI...Then I will call out for new playtests. :)

Things are getting exciting now!

Hello Curt !
Took few minutes this afternoon to take a peek at your overlord v2 scenario.

While I didn't understand some city distribution between neutral and rebels (or Tirana for rebel per exemple), I must say the world distribution is well chosen and impressive !
Then, openned a city and got mind-blown ! Your work with icons and fonts is incredible and inspiring !

Your terrain is very well chosen too (loving these forests !), and you did put hard work in their placement. Well done !

About gameplay, I'm too nooby and didn't delve deep enough into it to feel your expertise and learn from that.
I must say, you burst a need to put some effort in production icons and I lost some hours there, taking few hours break from lua. :)

I'll put more time for sure with this scenario Curt, with much thanks !

Greatings @CurtSibling
I dwelved a little deeper yesterday in your scenario, playing few turns. Here are added thoughts on your way to overlords max :

I liked the building restrictions, yet got interrogative in game : as an exemple, I couldn't understand why the airbase wasn't avaible for build in cities on the old continent.
Truth is, I made the same thing in other scenarii. Yet, ignorant facing your scenario, I felt the difficulty to know more about those restrictions (which I looked for in the lua code in the end).

Maybe a small alteration of the describe file is enough to solve that part ?

I liked the old way of attributing movepoints, with 1 for normal units and 2 for mobile ones.
On the other side, I didn't understand some choices, per exemple the pixers attribute given to motorized infantry ?

Your map choice is great too, this is huuuuuge and reflecting well ocean's vastness.
Are the amazon's sea-like tiles rather than rivers important ?

There are questions I mentionned before about cities affectations (between rebels, neutrals, axis, etc). Yet, your v2 is fun to play ! Can't wait for your "max" version of it !

Thanks for the feedback, I will include a readme that explains the requirements for city improvements.

UPDATE:
I am making final changes to the map, making sure anomaly units, left over from past changes are no longer in place. (like USSR having spitfires, etc).
Once that editing is done, the latest version should be ready for testing. I think this will be my most detailed scenario so far.

I am eager to take a play-through myself. :)
