Elevation with triggers...

Quoted from _o0XxX0o_ in Empire Earth:

Create and airport on map with a trigger..the terrain where the hanger creates has to be level, the area on the map where the runway creates can be at a different elevation; the elevation(of the runway) will raise or lower to the same elevation level as the hanger..create and remove airport in same trigger with no delay, and it happens "magically".

Elevation with airports are different in Empires. All terrain elevation lowers, but doesn't raise. Even with that the elevation lowers on gradual grate not sharp, flat and like EE.

In fact, if u have a movable ground unit, in Empires, and set that unit to be repalced by and airport, and then with a very short delay, be replaced by the unit it was before it was an airport, everytime it stops after moving..then it could concievably level every hill and mountain on the map, during the game, simply by moving around on the map and stopping.

Scenario Design Library > Elevation Files...Both links are to the same place. The other link#2 that went to another site in Empire Earth and all that information that went with the second link no longer applies to that link thats available now, which was, but is no longer there. So now that it's known that we have the same two links, could someone please tell me how to use either one of those same links or give me the link to the real site Elevation Files explains??

Quoted from The Adder:

Yeah I know(no ifs, and or buts), but I have this problem in Scenario Editor Effects that doesn't able me to test these things. And being something for elevation and was pretty cool for an area of a map during a Scenario would be nice to know, I apologize for Sceario Editor not being 100%, I'm still looking to resolve this technical difficulty I'm having with Effects bleeding through on some other Effect. Thanks _oOXxXOo_ for covering it.

Here is a tutorial on how they are used...same as in EE.

And here is the site to get elevation files. Though it seems that they have changed it around a bit and thus, have made it more difficult to obtain the file.

When I updated the article for Empires, there were still two separate choices. I cannot seem to get the java world map to appear on my browser for the current one, but the entire process is exactly the same once you have the file and the specifications for the file are exactly the same.

Updating along with the confirmation sounds...

qb_rms, I already have Woad Empires Articles Linked so I won't add that, the elevation file download place I will add though.

Note: Sadly I will be gone for two weeks starting tommorow (20th). I will update when I return, oh and it's fine for a mod to update if they so desire.

I didn't expect you to, I was just answering that guy's question.

Other than the two links I have in my above post, is there anything else I should add that I may have missed during my absence?
