Thread: French aircraft at German airfield

  1. #26
    Hi

    The Country.xml (ETO default) looks like this in the beginning:

    <Base>
    <!--NEK ETO Edition-->
    <Defaults CountryID="USA" PilotModel="Walker"/>
    <Alliances>
    <Alliance ID="Allies" Name="Allies">
    <Country ID="Britain"/>
    <Country ID="USA"/>
    <Country ID="Australia"/>
    <Country ID="Britain_FAA"/>
    <Country ID="Canada"/>
    <Country ID="Italy_Allied"/>
    <Country ID="France_Free"/>
    <Country ID="US_Navy"/>
    <Country ID="Other_Allied_Nations"/>
    <Country ID="Russia"/>
    <Country ID="Belgium"/>
    <Country ID="Netherlands"/>
    <Country ID="Spain_Republicans"/>
    <Country ID="Poland"/>
    </Alliance>
    <Alliance ID="Axis" Name="Axis">
    <Country ID="Germany"/>
    <Country ID="Italy"/>
    <Country ID="Vichy_France"/>
    <Country ID="Finland"/>
    <Country ID="Other_Axis_Nations"/>
    <Country ID="Spain_Nationalists"/>
    </Alliance>
    </Alliances>
    <Countries>

    I tested the campaign generator xls file and there were two Vichy_France aircraft I had missed to change:

    ai_Po631.xdp and DR_D520_ChauP.xdp.

    So that explains my problem!

    There were some other strange things in the aircraft xdp files also regarding some tanks, armored car and U-boat saying Left service: eral Allegience=
    Is that correct and what does it mean?

    One aircraft had the wrong left service date, but it's not an ETO aircraft so that might be intentional:
    DR_LeO451_Syria.xdp Left service: 13/31/1942

    Cheers

    13/31/1942 can't be right, because the calendar stops at 12; the date is given the American way, month first, which is rather confusing to say the very least. I'd change it for something more reasonable, say, 12/31/1942...

    Glad you found the trouble with the aircraft spawns.

    Nothing wrong with the country.xml. Germany is set as the first Axis nation. I wonder of the "owner" column in the global layer is set for Vichy_France for the airfield you are looking at?

    You will get a bit of corruption in the results in the Cagen file, because different xdp files are set up differently so the macro cannot cover every eventuality. I think the Allegiance= stuff is because the left service date is optional in xdp files so is sometimes missing.

    My airfield is Boeblingen which is German in the Global layer.

    I've changed France_Vichy to France_Free in ai_Po631.xdp and DR_D520_ChauP.xdp now, so I hope that will fix the problem.
