Autocreate

From ModEnc
Jump to: navigation, search

Autocreate in TeamTypes is used to check whether a unit should be recruited from the pre-placed unit on the map or it should be produced from a factory to form the team.

Pre-Placed unit formats on the map for Infantry, Units and Aircraft.

[Infantry]
INDEX=OWNER,ID,HEALTH,X,Y,SUB_CELL,MISSION,FACING,TAG,VETERANCY,GROUP,HIGH,AUTOCREATE_NO_RECRUITABLE,AUTOCREATE_YES_RECRUITABLE
[Units]
INDEX=OWNER,ID,HEALTH,X,Y,FACING,MISSION,TAG,VETERANCY,GROUP,HIGH,FOLLOWS_INDEX,AUTOCREATE_NO_RECRUITABLE,AUTOCREATE_YES_RECRUITABLE
[Aircraft]
INDEX=OWNER,ID,HEALTH,X,Y,FACING,MISSION,TAG,VETERANCY,GROUP,AUTOCREATE_NO_RECRUITABLE,AUTOCREATE_YES_RECRUITABLE

When a TeamType has Autocreate=no then the pre-placed units on the map with AUTOCREATE_NO_RECRUITABLE as 0 are not considered for recruitment. If there are units with AUTOCREATE_NO_RECRUITABLE as 1 then recruit those and form the team. If it falls short to form the team then produce remaining units from the factory to complete the team. If it fails to recruit the units on the map with AUTOCREATE_NO_RECRUITABLE as 1, because of any reason like Group mismatch along with Recruiter=no, then it cannot produce replacement for such units from the factory, so the team formation is interrupted and the team is not formed.

When a TeamType has Autocreate=yes then the pre-placed units on the map with AUTOCREATE_YES_RECRUITABLE as 0 are not considered for recruitment. If there are units with AUTOCREATE_YES_RECRUITABLE as 1 then recruit those and form the team. If it fails to recruit, because of any reason like Group mismatch along with Recruiter=no, then produce those units from the factory and complete the team. If it falls short to form the team from the pre-placed units on the map then also produce remaining units from the factory and complete the team. Additional restriction apply that is if AUTOCREATE_NO_RECRUITABLE is 1 then it cannot produce from factory.

For production from factory, it is assumed that the concerned house has required factory (barracks/war factory etc.) and has credits to produce units.

The value in MISSION also affects whether a pre-placed unit is recruitable or not. For example, in rules(md).ini, Harmless section is set with Recruitable=no. So if the pre-placed unit is in Harmless mission, it is not available for recruitment whereas a unit in Guard or Area Guard mission are available for recruitment.
