I tried this new feature:
- disabling research
- disabling purchase
- disabling changing unit type
- disabling leveling units

everything went well but the disabling of leveling units.
Here I didn't get the 'correct' message but a more technically message.
(See attached image)
I played a quick game as axis. After finishing the turn as Germany, the game crashed to desktop.
Then I tried to disable each feature one by one. Everyone went well but the disabling leveling units. May there be an error?

Spelling Error?

I noticed that "sceanrio_disabled_level" has scenario misspelled. Could that be the problem?

Why would you want to disable features like research or purchase?
