:: Making Boats in Tiberian Sun ::


  Unfortunatelly, it`s not possible to make boats like we can make in Red Alert 2, but we still have 4 ways to make boats. The problem is that it will affect the gameplay. Here are the 4 ways:


1) By adding a new building with the codes:

Code:
WaterBound=yes
Factory=UnitType
WeaponsFactory=no
BaseNormal=no
Adjacent=8


You will have a ShipYard that only build ships and a WarFactory that builds everything (including ships). In this case, to build ship: Set primary to the dock and build it. All vehicles built by the shipyard will not appear and will have their money back. Every boat built in WarFactory must be destroyed...Or the WarFactory will not work...


2) Build a structure 1x1 that has the following codes:

Code:
FreeUnit=SHIP
WaterBound=yes
Unsellable=yes
Repairable=no
BaseNormal=no
Adjacent=3
UnitRepairable=yes
Prerequisite=SHIPYARD


This is the structure that builds the ship. We can have a shipyard just as prerequisite:

Code:
WaterBound=yes
UnitRepairable=yes
BaseNormal=yes



3) You can make it so that you build a shipbay and then build a 1x1 building and that building undeploys in to the ship. The ship would not be able to redeploy into the building.


4) Just do like in the first way by adding a new building with the codes:

Code:
WaterBound=yes
Factory=UnitType
WeaponsFactory=no
BaseNormal=no
Adjacent=8


Now you check the code of your war factory and remove the WeaponsFactory= line. Now if you build a ship in your war factory as primary, it will give you the cash back. If you build a land vehicle in your shipyard, the game will also give your cash back. The great problem of this solution is the fact that the door animation will be gone and the vehicles will leave from the botton of the war factory. It can be solved if you make a new shp for your war factory with a door permanently opened. But this way has another problem: the rally point of your war factory will no longer works.
