Guys,

when there is a value in the build box and can build is ticked as "on" then should there only be mines built to the value given in the box in this case 75? Or is something else going on...I notice in some mods the box in on and some its off.

My opponent says the minelayers are re loading and the pool is staying as is?? I that possible under any circumstances?

Waiting for the turn to check.

I asked this question on another matter a while back but now I remember I had no reply. I would think the game build to the value given and that is it??

Thanks ... Yes then thats fine - I think he must have a display problem. I have opened a test game and the pools were going down ok on my test. Production was ok and what would be expected.

Butwhat does it mean if the Can build YES/ NO button is Yes and No? I assumed on yes it will then produce what is set - what happens if its no? Seems to make no difference from what I see.

I have no idea what the can build switch really does.

Can build is for if the device should be built or not , there are a lot of devices from older witp left in database of witp AE , those are usually set to can build ; no

Can turn production on or off just like the other facets of the game.

I think it is not true - If build is on it builds what is in the box . OK as it should be . If its off it still builds what is in the box from what I see - but I do not know if there are any other implications as there seems no reason f0or the YES/ NO to exist.

Most mods seem to have it as YES but SCN 2 is NO and mines still get built.

OK may need to do some more test because I think it builds if there is a value in the box.

Mines at the top are legacy devices with can build ; No
the one at the bottom is actual mine device with can build ; Yes

OK but if you look in Scn 1 stock ( not a mod) you will see all mines are set to No. But they all build I assume.

In scen1 Mine devices you see from 119-130 line are legacy ones and they are not produced , actual produced mines are all over the place , for example ;
