Scripting for Era-Based Unit Locking
« on: July 20, 2018, 10:33:47 AM »
So, I recall that locking units as eras change for IR+NR+EOTH is done via .lua scripting ("story scripting" in this case, right?), but I've been poking around for a while in ICW's mod files and I'm not finding the file that controls what units are locked when. Any pointers? (I checked Data\Scripts\Story first, but I've really checked everywhere in \Scripts and \XML\ICW and I haven't found what I'm looking for.)

Story scripting refers to XML story files for the GCs, not the LUA scripts
I also have a YouTube channel where I talk about mod development and gaming, do tutorials, and Let's Plays. If you like the content, consider supporting it on Patreon

Since this Topic is related i'll dig this thread back up ^^

I have a question:
Where do i edit the Availability for certain ships in certain eras?
For Example i want to make the Venator available from the start, but after the first era progression i want to phase the venators out along the Dreadnoughts, Acclamators and Procursators.

In which file(s) would i do that?

Never Mind.
Figured it out by myself that it's
in Data/XML/Conquests Story_Sandbox_Universal_Lock_IR
