Creating Dredged Islands - 12/2/2020 10:47:10 PM

The Chinese have dredged up islands in the South China Sea.

Some of the Emirs in the Emirates have done similarly in the Persian Gulf for other reasons.

These small islands do not appear in Command.

I would like to create a scenario where the Chinese have placed a ground unit (SAM and Radars) on a newly dredged island. To this end, I need to either be able to put a ground unit where Command thinks is water, or (better yet) designate as land a small area on the map that is water. Then presumably I can place my ground units on that newly formed island.

Are there any thought on how to do this?

Perhaps it would be easier to do it the other way, that is, strip down a couple of ships and re-work them with the sensors, mounts, magazines, and weapons from the systems that you are trying to model?

If you put down a ground unit on land first, you can move it on to water afterwards. However it may have trouble attacking or being attacked by certain weapons. This method might only be useful when creating airfields on fictional or real but not yet modelled in the game islands but it is something.

Take a drilling platform and add the wanted sensors and weapons to it. If you want an airfield an option is to take the Mobile Offshore Base disable the engines and modify the weapons and sensors as needed.
