TD was INI-moddable

TD was INI moddable to an extent, the map ini files existed and were easily editable, save for object-modification, therefore the values are also applicable ;) //DCoder 11:56, 15 August 2006 (CEST)

I'm not too sure whether TD (or RA1) stored most numeric values as signed longs, too, because I don't know the processors of their generation... were they 32bit-processors already? -pd

So this makes Help:Values redundant?

There was an old article Help:Values, which covered this in less detail. Should we make it redirect to this page? //DCoder 11:59, 15 August 2006 (CEST)

Other way round. This was conceived as general comprehension help, and should therefore reside in the Help namespace. I'll do the merging and stuff after I edited Template:Flag.

Oops, I didn't even know that page existed, I'd have edited that one then... *ashamed* but it sounds senseful to have it in the Help category -pd


Locomotors NOT value type.
Locomotors ONLY tag name, not more.
So, it's MUST called "CLSID", nothing another.

Locomotor, both as a movement- and as a weapons flag, only takes a certain subgroup of CLSIDs as its value - it is highly doubtful it would work with an AI Generals CLSID, for example; this subgroup of CLSIDs is commonly known as "Locomotors", and it is commonly accepted in the modding community that you need to feed Locomotor "a Locomotor". As such, "Locomotors" is a perfectly valid value type for the value types page, meaning "the subgroup of CLSIDs used by the Locomotor", even if there are more, "Locomotor-like", registry-formatted, alphanumeric strings. For those, the same header includes "CLSIDs".
