Hi guys,

Are the air group size changes hard coded? Or can you modify them in the editor?

example, 1/42 size 27 fighters. Changes to 36 on 7/42. Changes to 40 in 45. Can these be changed at all?

If hard coded, is there a way to change it through another direction? Meaning, does the code look for "VF-XX" and changing the name to "Fighter-XX" eliminates the hard coded changes?

Thanks!!

I should have just kept trying things in the editor. Changing the name does eliminate the set date group size changes. I think the code looks for "VF-" or VB- or VT- etc.

You can specify the group resize in the editor.

The intention had been for that to happen in order to take away the hard-coded requirement.
I discovered to my embaressment that this didn't happen in the initial release when one of the patches removed the Vxx resizing from the code. No more resizes occurred when starting new games. It was added back in a later patch and the data files updated with the new resizes.

If a resize is defined in the editor for a group Vxx, then the hard coded one is ignored.
