How do you add hidden units/hidden weapons such as the US carpet bomb to the .ini files?

For the US carpet bomb, you just need to make a certain Science usable by the player, give it a cost and a set of PrerequisiteSciences, an example would be like this:
PrerequisiteSciences = SCIENCE_AMERICA SCIENCE_Rank3 ; first controls country, second rank
SciencePurchasePointCost = 1 ; could be more
IsGrantable = Yes
DisplayName = SCIENCE:TempName
Description = SCIENCE:TempDescription
and voila, you can take an abilit for a general that allows you to use the carpet bomb. you can do the same for all the hidden superweaps, this way you don't break the campaign missions in which you use them.

If I did it that way, would I have to replace one of the existing General Promotions?

Only one way to find out, isn't it? :p

For some reason I can't get the .ini files to affect the game. Where are the files supposed to go anyway. So far they are in my main Generals Directory

By the way would anyone be interested if I upgraded the nuke to a H-Bomb. It will be more powerful and hav a larger range but will cost more to build and longer to charge

put all of them in your Generals directory

Which one? the my documents one or the main one. I cannot get them to work in the main one. Most of the .ini files are inmy D:\Games\Generals folder with some in D:\Games\Generals\Object and D:\Games\Generals\Default

put them in the Data directory of the main Generals, that's where I think they go, because inside ini.big there's a data directory and then the directories you mentioned

Thanks I'll try that
02-17-2003, 06:11 AM
I think I know how to add them. Is it that I add the ini files to the INI.BIG file itself. The Data folder doesn't work
