Flying Sub

Post by Rasputitsa »

Not sure how significant this is, but tracking a sub move into the South China Sea and the sub seems to have become airborne to pass overland in the Philippines, at hex (61,48) !

Good catch, this is not normal indeed.

Not sure how good, as I may have dropped the catch.

I just checked the other stock scenarios, where this does not happen, so it might be something to do with the mods I have installed. [&:]


Edit : withhold the comment until I have had time to try and work out what's different in my scenario set-up.

Maybe, is the map changed by the mod?

If it is showing it means the modder tagged that tile as water possibly by accident. It doesn't replicate in the normal scenarios.

Love the map work.

Love the map work.

The map/counter graphics are a combination of the work provided by various modders and the game fly-out shows the two adjoining hexes (61,48/60,48) as jungle/land hexes. The mods are graphic only and should not have affected the mapping, but something has changed, either way it's not a big issue and doesn't have much effect. [8D]


P.S. Great game, still working through the mechanics, but very enjoyable 'sweet spot'.

Went back over the maps for some modded scenarios and found several hexes where naval movement should be barred and wasn't and fixed that in the editor (land hexes had 'water' box checked).

This happened in scenarios where modded graphic files were added and don't know why, as no tile data was changed by me, but was altered from the stock scenarios, however, all fixed now. [8D]

Editor is still a mystery, but learning.

You probably accidentally fat fingered it. I think in the current editor I removed the sides so no mistakes can be done.

The main thing is that it was fixable even for a technically challenged individual like me, so thanks for a system that even I can use, even if it took a bit of digging to find the problem.[&:]
