Hello,

I have modified the standard DBs with new ground elements and TOE's.

I have new ground elements (tanks) in slots 1550 and up that are not being produced (turn after turn). It appears to be only the tanks.

They show up in the production screen with the Capacity set correcty but nothing being produced.

eg: new Panther tank: capacity 120 built 0

Any ideas?

Theoretically it should work. Hard to sat with more details. What is the location you set to produce them?

Basically I created replicas of exiting tanks and AFV with new ones.

I replaced the AFVs being replaced in say Berlin with my new vehicle.

eg:

Berlin produces 10 PzIVh tanks - I replaced that one with my own "new creation" PzIVh tank.

why?

so that I could design a ground element upgrade tree that was all in order in the database

eg:

slot 1550 Panzer II
slot 1550 Panzer IIf
slot 1551 Panzer IIL

etc..

otherwise it is hard to kkep track as to what upgrades to what by jumping all arounfd the database when adjusting start and end production times. Plus I don;'t wreck the original ground elements with my changes.

Ok, I found the code which prevents ground element production for the slots past 1480. This limitation was done to "protect" "special" items (MANPOWER, HI, OIL) from double production. It can be dropped in the future. As for now, you should place your GE in slot before 1480.

mariof2 & Helpless,

Thanks for this discovery. I'll make a note of it in the Editor Manual.
