Topic Subject: A trick to make units and buildings undeletable.
posted 12-12-03 07:07 AM EDT (US)   
If a flare or an impassible tile is replaced with a building, land unit, or sea unit, It becomes impossible to delete by the owning player. Planes are a different story. An initial test of a couple of types of planes shows they are deletable.

Also a test reveals buildings can occupy the same space. I had 50 barracks sitting on the same exact spot(If I had 125 "stealth" zeppelins occupying the same space, 50 buildings aint going crash the editor).

On another note. Replacing a farm with a unit or semi ambient object allows a citizen or other unit to occupy the same space of another unit that is not normally possible. Example, I had a cit stand on the deack of a ship, and a cit stand in the middle of a box, just if he were a jack-in-the-box(units can't walk thru boxes).

Replacing a unit that is facing odd directions with a farm makes for a more diverse farming scene.

Christmas Tree

-Made with 8 flares facing 8 different directions replaced with 8 pagodas on the exact same spot(no tinsle)-
I experimented with over 100 variations. not one editor crashed on like 150 tests.

the second looks pretty cool, though the roof of the bottom looks...ummm...weird

Maybe you can put guards and/or archers on walls if you combine this with a floating unit.

I've put pillboxes inside buildings this way, and it looks fairly neat. I'm planning to put a banner on top of the building saying how many units are in it.

Those pics eh?

This is a family forum -- I doubt GillB would approve of me saying such things as "thrust deeply while rubbing hands passionately". -Obese
