A simpler solution if you want to facilitate BoB inb 1940 would be to:
- Make North Sea 9 to England cost 0 MP
- Make North Sea 9 to W. France cost 0 MP
- Retain England to North Sea 9 as 1 MP
- Retain W. France to North Sea 9 as 1 MP
There will still be some sideeffects - but I believe they will be a good deal less severe.
In coding the change goes like this in regions40.txt (the change being the two 5's in the SIDE line of code.
REGION,26,North Atlantic 9,PLAYER_UN,France,TER_SEA
If this is what Mike suggested previously I apologise for misunderstanding. I just read his suggestion as changing the cost in both directions which is what I said would cause all kinds of problems. Just substitude with the North Sea if you prefer that side of the crossing arrow or make both possible.
With respect to making Scotland-North Sea cost 2 MP. Then you would need to change both those areas to 2MP areas. This would have the effect of making the North Sea - North Atlantic 9 cost 2 MP too as the North Atlantic 9 is already a 2MP border. This is because its not the border that is noted as costing 2MP but rather each territory and then the effect is a 2MP border is both terriories are marked as such. Personally, I aim to advocate making Scotland rough once the next patch draws near as I feel that will give the right balance.
