I've read little tidbits here and there about these Pwhex files that limit LCU stacking. Could someone explain what exactly these are and how to install them.

Also, do they work in games against the AI, or just in PBEM?

Okay, I now have the pwexe, pwzlink and pwzone files downloaded. (Thanks for the link ny59giants.)

Now, do I use all three of these, or just the pwexe files? I went to the Bigbabes website and found some instructions for downloading the extended map, but didn't find anything indicating how to simply install the files required to incorporate the advanced stacking limits.

Anyone able to help here?

Put all the files into the game's top-level folder.

The important thing is that all your PBEM opponents use the same files, but if you only play the AI then it should just work.

The three Pwhex files go into the main AE folder and replace the existing ones. You need either the last beta or the last official patch to use the stacking limits and their consequences. There are sets for both stock map and extended map, make sure you use the correct ones.

The extended map is good for only select mods.

Thanks guys.

I just copied the files into the game's main folder, restarted the game and it seems to be working fine (as I mouse over hexes, I'm getting the new info about stacking levels). Another instance illustrating just how helpful this community is.

Just out of curiousity, what are those other two files (pwzlink and pwzone)? I'm assuming that since the pwhexe file is so much larger than the others that it must be the actual hex stacking data, but what are the others for?
