1. The width and height of your chrome2.png both need to be powers of 2. Try resizing it to 1024x512. 2. Yes. Have a look at mod.yaml. 3. In C&C production is handled differently. Production traits are defined on the building (ProductionQueue, rules/structures.yaml) instead of the player (ClassicPro...

The shroud reveal range was increased from 4 cells to 5 cells, and the weapon range was increased from 3.5 cells to 6 cells. I'm guessing the amount of damage done was also increased? Nope. Out of interest: What range does tanya have? What range does a pillbox have? Certainly pillbox are pretty use...

Easy. You have duplicate Selectable definitions for your unit, as the error message says.

Selectable:
Bounds: 30,30
Selectable:
Bounds: 44,38

You need to remove one of them.

Re: Trying to decide whether to Uninstall this... balance is

Some thoughts: You are not losing to artillery alone, but a combination of units which synergise really well together, but with the catch that this force is very expensive to buy. Artillery is inferior to V2s in manoeuvrability, speed, burst damage and health (100 HP vs 200 HP), which makes V2 much ...

A good microing Soviet player is pretty nightmarish to deal with, speaking from personal experience. The V2s are fast and manoeuvrable, with a high warhead damage. This can let them do hit-and-run attacks on base structures. This actually used to be a massive, game-crippling problem when a V2 did en...

If I throw together a map with custom rules (with the goal of getting the rule changes into the next version of the game), will people test it?
