    Im just wondering why the stealth bombers cant load onto a carrier like in civ 3? Also why cant the carrier carry 4 units like in civ 3?:confused:

    Easy answer: it's not the same game.

    You could probably mod it in however.

    How would putting stealth bombers onto a carrier make any sense? Im fairly sure they are too big to fit and require to much runway to takeoff.

    The carrier carry limit is probably an XML value that you can change very easily.

    I don't see what the problem is...


    Just kidding.
    In WW2 some types of bombers could fit, but no stealth bombers.

    B-25's were launched from carriers during the Doolittle raid on Japan's home islands, but those had to be modified to do so.
    Thats an interesting picture. Do you know if its scaled properly?

    Its probably bigger than it appears in the photo for all we know.

    And yes, stealth bombers are freaking huge. You can't put them on a carrier at all.

    A better question to ask is why can't we put helicopters on carriers and have them act as more or less air units than a ground one.

    Probably because for every element of gameplay, they're land units and they can be loaded more efficiently on transports.

    It is quite easy to edit carriers to carry 4 planes. Mine do.

    The point of STEALTH bobmers is invisibility, not sailing on a huge ship....

    helicopters are better then they were in civ2 i used them a lot until they were put off mrp in bts
