07:21 <DrJoeTr0n> lets see if you can form a sentence
07:24 <luke-jr> hm
07:25 <luke-jr> well, *I* got an EFIKA and you didn't
07:25 <luke-jr> so there :p
07:29 <DrJoeTr0n> give me it
07:30 <luke-jr> lol
07:30 <luke-jr> why?
07:30  * luke-jr isn't really using it for anything
07:30 <luke-jr> ...yet, anyhow
07:30 <DrJoeTr0n> gonna put it into an NES
07:31 <DrJoeTr0n> does it have onboard video?
07:31 <luke-jr> no
07:32 <luke-jr> I have a spare Radeon 9200 SE
07:32 <luke-jr> but I haven't a need for video on it
07:32 <luke-jr> so it's not plugged in
07:32 <luke-jr> and there's nothing to hold the card in place
07:33 <DrJoeTr0n> heh
07:33 <DrJoeTr0n> i have have a 9200se pci version
07:33 <luke-jr> then it'd be sticking up
07:33 <DrJoeTr0n> yeah
07:33 <luke-jr> the AGP adapter at least rotates the card 90 degrees
07:33 <DrJoeTr0n> so maybe id have to look for one of those weird ITX boards
07:34 <luke-jr> it's ATX
07:34 <DrJoeTr0n> the efika?
07:34 <luke-jr> yeah
07:34 <luke-jr> it needs a regular ATX power supply
07:34 <luke-jr> it doesn't include a HD either :p
07:34 <DrJoeTr0n> how big is it?
07:35 <DrJoeTr0n> it looks super tiny
07:35 <DrJoeTr0n> http://www.mini-itx.com/store/subscribe.asp?s=8
07:35 <DrJoeTr0n> is what i also might look at
07:36 <luke-jr> it could fit in the space of a CD-ROM drive
07:36 <DrJoeTr0n> hmmm
07:36 <luke-jr> w/o PSU and vid card
07:37 <luke-jr> HD doesn't add to the size significantly
07:37 <luke-jr> hehe, you could make it some kind of weird add-on server you put in a 5" slot :p
07:38 <luke-jr> actually...
07:38  * luke-jr claims the patent on this, or at least prior art
07:38 <luke-jr> Mac OS X virtualization for Windoze boxes :p
07:38 <luke-jr> run Mac OS X at native speed :p
07:38 <DrJoeTr0n> id just put laptop parts and just wedge it all in there
07:39 <luke-jr> :p
07:40 <DrJoeTr0n> http://www.mini-itx.com/projects/nespc/
07:41 <luke-jr> you could probably turn it into a NES :p
07:42 <luke-jr> SNES controllers have Linux support
07:42 <luke-jr> just add a cartridge interface
07:42 <luke-jr> install an emulator, etc
07:44 <DrJoeTr0n> hmm
07:44  * DrJoeTr0n checks zophar
07:45 <DrJoeTr0n> hmmm
07:46 <luke-jr> with the added bonus of compatibility w/ other platforms :p
07:46 <luke-jr> of course, it'd be real easy if you skip the cart interface and just use ROMs for everything
07:46 <luke-jr> or replace cart w/ a USB port for USB sticks
07:47 <luke-jr> you'd need to add serial ports if you wanted more than 1 controller
07:47 <luke-jr> can be done w/ a USB hub and USB->serial
07:48 <DrJoeTr0n> oh im aware
07:49 <DrJoeTr0n> so you're gonna give me it? :D
07:50 <luke-jr> heh
07:50 <luke-jr> no, but if you have the skill to make a nice game console out of it, you could probably get one :p

10:15 <Lucifer_arma> allies aren't subject to zones of control, but all others are, which is why not allying with luke lets me control the situation
10:16 <spidey> heh
10:16 <spidey> luke knows he comes in my space it's his as
10:16 <spidey> ass
10:16 <Lucifer_arma> if luke wants me to accept an alliance, he's going to have to start noticing when people ask him to establish and respect borders
10:16 <Lucifer_arma> or quit pretending not to notice, whichever is applicable

10:19 <+Lucifer_arma> also, if there's no strategic or tactical reason for an ally to put military units in my territory, I'll cancel the alliance and/or not make the alliance in the first place

10:20 <+Lucifer_arma> well, if you're using my cities to stage an invasion, that's fine, but you have to tell me you're doing it
10:20 <+spidey> 3 a large force close to me that hasn't been moved in 2 turns
10:20 <+Lucifer_arma> and you have to share vision.  :)  Allies that don't share vision are absolutely not allowed to put any military units in my territory
10:20  * wrtlprnft wonders why luke-jr's oping everyone
10:20 <+spidey> then, and only then will i take defensive matters

10:22 <+spidey> yea
10:22 <@luke-jr> then you have no reason to not attack :p
10:22 -!- mode/#armagetron [-v spidey] by ChanServ
10:22 <+Lucifer_arma> right, and then I've got an army in his border, and we've already made a ton of enemies, so we have to work together :)
10:22 <@luke-jr> :o
10:22 <spidey> i don't think you've ever put units in my cities for defense besides that stupid russian game have you?
10:22  * luke-jr runs off to bed
10:22 <+Lucifer_arma> I've done it in emergencies
10:22 <+Lucifer_arma> like "there's barbs and no defenses, help meeee!"
10:23 <spidey> heh
10:23 <spidey> well
10:23 <spidey> even if you do have units in my city
10:23 <+Lucifer_arma> I've never done it as policy, because it is somewhat antagonistic :)
10:23 <spidey> as soon as the alliance is canceldd they go back to there homecities
10:23 <+Lucifer_arma> yep
10:23  * Lucifer_arma notes that when he puts units in there, they usually don't go in the cities, they go in more forward-positioned defensive positions
10:23 <+Lucifer_arma> and safely off any potential city work squares
10:24 <+Lucifer_arma> unless the city in question is under direct threat
10:24 <+Lucifer_arma> wait, in that europe game I kept putting units in a city, but that was because the latvians kept attacking that city, and it was the right strategic decision to defend that city
10:24 <spidey> yea
10:25 <spidey> they took that city they had a clear for me you and mom
10:25 <+Lucifer_arma> yep.  and if we defended that city, they wasted resources attacking it
10:25 <+Lucifer_arma> even if the city had gotten destroyed I would've wanted a fort there
10:25 <spidey> though
10:25 <spidey> one thing freeciv doesn't have
10:26 <spidey> in civ2 when you airlift
10:26 <spidey> if there's enemy area between
10:26 <spidey> there's a chance the unit dies
10:26 <+Lucifer_arma> hmmm, I've never really used airlifts
10:26 <spidey> i have
10:26 <+Lucifer_arma> I always found the UI frustrating and the rules never clear :/
10:26 <spidey> when i need 1 turn defense
10:26 <spidey> heh
10:27 <+Lucifer_arma> I'll probably figure it out in the warclient, which makes airlifting a lot easier
10:27 <spidey> ...
10:27 <spidey> it gives you a list of cities
10:27 <spidey> you click one that's checked
10:27 <spidey> that's the one you're airlifting to
10:27 <+Lucifer_arma> I've been adding port facilities and airports so I can build veteran navy and air units :)
10:27 <spidey> in that game were me and you control half the world
10:27 <spidey> i've got like 12 port thingies
10:28 <+Lucifer_arma> well, let me amend my statement.  I didn't play a lot of civ2, and the civ1 airlift UI was frustrating and the rules weren't very clear
10:28 <+Lucifer_arma> that game where you're aussie, and you fought the russians?  ANd I'm me.  :)  That's the game where I started building those things, which is why my barracks count doesn't give me # cities
10:29 <+Lucifer_arma> the cities that build navy don't have barracks because they're not building ground units.  If I switch them to ground units, they'll have to build a barracks first, obviously
10:29 <spidey> heh
10:29 <spidey> i've got over 87 barracks in that game
10:29 <spidey> of course i get them free
10:29 <spidey> along with anything else that costs 1 gold
10:29 <spidey> <3 me wonder
10:29 <+Lucifer_arma> :)
10:30 <spidey> there's only 2 wonders i actually want in that game
10:30 <+Lucifer_arma> there's something wrong with it, though.  I built hoover dam and now can't build power plants, and for some reason I can't build mfg plants
10:30 <spidey> the gold one and isaacs
10:30 <spidey> the rest i get to make luke mad
10:30 <spidey> ugh
10:30 <+Lucifer_arma> I prefer to let luke build 'em, and then I'll take them :)
10:30 -!- GodTodd [n=GodTodd@cpe-76-183-44-91.tx.res.rr.com] has quit [Success]
10:30 <spidey> you can only have either 1 nuke plant, 1 power plant, or 1 hydro damn
10:30 <spidey> you can't have all
10:31 <+Lucifer_arma> right, but hoover dam counts as a hydro plant in all cities
10:31 <spidey> exactly
10:31 <+Lucifer_arma> it's *much* cheaper than building plants in every city
10:31 <spidey> yes
10:31 <+Lucifer_arma> but somehow I cna't build mfg plants, which require a power plant of some sort and a factory
10:31 <spidey> so if you techniqually have a hydro dam in every city
10:31 <spidey> how would you build power plants ? :p
10:32 <spidey> no
10:32 <+Lucifer_arma> that's the point, I can't, but I also can't build mfg plants
10:32 <spidey> mfg plant requires mass production AND and factory
10:32 <+Lucifer_arma> hmmm, I thought I had mass production
10:32 <spidey> no?
10:32 <spidey> i had just gotten it
10:32 <+Lucifer_arma> I have factories, because the hoover dam doesn't kick in without factories anyway
10:32 <spidey> remember you went for robotics
10:33 <+Lucifer_arma> so maybe I don't have mass production, and I just expect to be able to build mfg plants when I can build howitzers because I usually get mass production first
10:33 <spidey> lol
10:34 <+Lucifer_arma> anyway, I think that game is about to run out of fun
10:34 <+Lucifer_arma> we're closer to finishing the game when it's going to run out of fun than we usually get, which I think is a good thing
10:34 <+Lucifer_arma> but basically after I'm done with the mexicans and the americans, and maybe with mordor, there isn't much left besides tedium
10:35 <spidey> well
10:35 <+Lucifer_arma> don't know for sure about where you're at, but it looks pretty much the same.  You've already done the fun stuff against the sumerians
10:35 <spidey> there's still alot
10:35 <spidey> we only control half the map
10:35 <+Lucifer_arma> yeah, but we're reaching the point where taking the whole map will be tedious and not much fun
10:35 <spidey> if that
10:36 <+Lucifer_arma> not there yet, but I think we're getting there.  Probably the next time we restore we'll be there.
10:36 <spidey> hell
10:36 <spidey> i can spit out 4 units every turn
10:36 <+Lucifer_arma> my war with the aztecs and incas was a lot of fun, and the fact that it segued into direct war with mordor was fun, but mordor is almost destroyed now
10:36 <spidey> heh
10:37 <spidey> at the rate i'm spitting out bombers
10:37 <+Lucifer_arma> I'm putting out like 12 units in 2 turns.  :)  Maybe more, maybe less.  Some of it depends on losses, because if I don't take losses, my city productions are slowing down a lot.
10:37 <spidey> i have 24 now
10:37 <spidey> in about 20 turns i should be able invade with 40
10:37 <spidey> or 50
10:37 <+Lucifer_arma> heh.  My bombers are split up right now, but I have like 44 iirc
10:38 <spidey> heh
10:38 <+Lucifer_arma> they're converging though, everywhere they're involved is advancing towards a common point
10:38 <spidey> i'm glad i populated that little alaskian like thing on my continent
10:38 <spidey> it's been a very good naval port
10:38 <+Lucifer_arma> :)
10:39 <+Lucifer_arma> those cold cities aren't necessarily bad, they just have low food production is all
10:39 <spidey> i got so many battleships i yea
10:39 <spidey> 'er
10:39 <spidey> i got so many battleships i had to start just moving them out into the harbors and "S" ing them
10:39 <+Lucifer_arma> I don't even build battleships, heh
10:39 <spidey> battleships have a 12 attack and 12 defense
10:39 <+Lucifer_arma> if battleships were cheaper, I'd build them
10:39 <spidey> if they're vet it's increased, of course
10:40 <+Lucifer_arma> well, there's several things
10:40 <spidey> i put out battleships in less than 9 turns
10:40 <spidey> in each of those cities
10:40 <+Lucifer_arma> first is that battleships are obsolete by carriers + bombers
10:40 <+Lucifer_arma> this is a historical thing, not a civ thing
10:40 <spidey> they've all got factories, offshore platforms, nuke plants, and soon to have mfg plants
10:40 <+Lucifer_arma> so when you look at modern navies, you see task groups that are aegis cruisers supporting carriers
10:41 <spidey> well
10:41 <spidey> battleships are effective against multiple targets
10:41 <+Lucifer_arma> the period where battleships are actually useful is small enough that we get past battleships faster than I can build one
10:41 <spidey> aegis cruisers get pwnt big time by battleships
10:41 <+Lucifer_arma> they are, but cruisers for the screen and subs for the attack are just as effective, if not more so
10:41 <+Lucifer_arma> yes, but they're cheaper to replace, and subs have attack 12
10:42 <spidey> yea
10:42 <+Lucifer_arma> so offensively, subs are actually better than battleships because they also have stealth
10:42 <spidey> but battleships last long
10:42 <spidey> since they're cheaper :p
10:42 <+Lucifer_arma> defensively subs suck, and they're supposed to
10:42 <spidey> yea
10:42 <+Lucifer_arma> subs can also carry missiles
10:42 <spidey> stupid sumerians whiped out 2 loaded subs
10:42 <spidey> >:|
10:42 <+Lucifer_arma> you see why I build so goddamned many subs?  :)
10:42 <+[Xpert]DarkStar> #morning
10:42 <+armabot> Good Morning [Xpert]DarkStar Random Fortune: The universe seems neither benign nor hostile, merely indifferent. || -- Sagan
10:42 <spidey> hey it's that darkstar person
10:43 <spidey> 'er i mean HI DARKSTAR!
10:43 <+[Xpert]DarkStar> -.-
10:43 <+Lucifer_arma> I build destroyers for my screen because they're cheap, but I'm starting to get sick of replacing them and cruisers work better, they're just more expensive
10:43 <+Lucifer_arma> so now I'm building the initial screen with destroyers and then replacing them with cruisers
10:43 <spidey> ...
10:43 <spidey> destroyers have like 4/4 rating
10:43 <spidey> they blow
10:43 <+Lucifer_arma> they do, in fact, suck pretty seriously, but they're dirt cheap
10:43 <+Lucifer_arma> and the screen I put up is expensive, even when build with destroyers
10:44 <spidey> so why not build something that'll last ALOT longer?
10:44 <spidey> i meani haven't lost a battleship yet
10:44 <+Lucifer_arma> replacing the destroyers with cruisers makes it a lot better, but you only have to replace the destroyers that are in trouble spots
10:44 <spidey> and i've been attacking coastal defenses with them
10:44 <+Lucifer_arma> well, you may not have lost a battleship, but all of my enemies have lost a lot of battleships
10:44 <spidey> heh
10:45 <spidey> doesn't matter to me though
10:45 <spidey> all that does is step up my production
10:45 <+Lucifer_arma> they bring them up and attack my destroyers, killing 2-3 of them and never seeing the sub that's also there
10:45 <spidey> bring me down to 6turns per bs!
10:45 <+Lucifer_arma> hell, I'd use transports for the screen, the screen only needs to have vision
10:46 <+Lucifer_arma> I'd use carriers for it if the game had a sensible way to manage carriers
10:46 <spidey> burn them all
10:46 <spidey> ugh
10:46 <spidey> dude
10:46 <spidey> carriers cost the same as battleships
10:46 <+Lucifer_arma> it should be that if you attack with a bomber from a carrier, it automatically returns to its carrier the next turn
10:46 <+Lucifer_arma> yeah, but they carry bombers :)
10:47 <+Lucifer_arma> I could use 3 carriers with 3-4 bombers on each of them to cover the same area that I currently build like 20 destroyers to cover
10:47 <spidey> could do it like defcon
10:47 <+Lucifer_arma> that is cheap, but it's also tedious to maintain.  The destroyers sit on sentry
10:47 <spidey> 2 bombers per carrier
10:47 <spidey> 5 fighters
10:47 <+Lucifer_arma> the carriers would require manual maintenance
10:48 <+Lucifer_arma> well, you want to place the carriers where their bombers' attack zones overlap each other's a little bit
10:48 <+Lucifer_arma> then fly awacs to patrol the area and send bombers to hit anything they see
10:48 <+Lucifer_arma> the only problem is that it would let subs through :/
10:49 <spidey> so feel the gaps with some cheap unit?
10:49 <+Lucifer_arma> like destroyers?
10:49 <+Lucifer_arma> :)
10:49 <+Lucifer_arma> that would work, then use the bombers to hit the subs when they appear
10:50 <spidey> ;p
10:50 <+Lucifer_arma> but to be useful, the game needs to manage it for me, automatically sending the awacs to patrol, and automatically launching the bombers to hit anything it sees
10:50 <+Lucifer_arma> now, can bombers be put on autoattack in a carrier?
10:50 <spidey> "patrol"
10:50 <spidey> it's a option
10:51 <+Lucifer_arma> well, warclient provides air unit patrol
10:51 <spidey> hm
10:51 <spidey> guess i could patrol my costal cities then
10:51 <spidey> :D
10:51 <+Lucifer_arma> I've actually had good luck with putting subs on patrol, so maybe filling in the gap with patrolling subs would be better than brute-forcing it with destroyers
10:51 <+Lucifer_arma> warclient's UI additions are useful, but a real pain to use
10:52 <+Lucifer_arma> the only time I used air unit patrol I managed to run the bomber out of fuel somehow
10:52 <spidey> lol
10:53 <+Lucifer_arma> I do want patrolling ships to automatically attack any enemy they find and then go back on patrol
10:53 <+Lucifer_arma> of course, I want sentried ships to do it too :)
10:53 <spidey> lol
10:53 <spidey> argh
10:53 <spidey> i'ma have to learn mysql
10:55 <spidey> i'ma go get owned in americas army

11:10 <+Lucifer_arma> oh yeah, I also want to be able to attack units that I'm neutral towards
11:11 <+Lucifer_arma> I don't like having to declare war to attack a unit.  Sure, the person controlling it should declare war on me, but I don't want to have to declare war to do it
11:11 <+Lucifer_arma> sometimes you just want to say "move that piece or I'm killing it", and neither side wants total war
11:12 <+Lucifer_arma> but when you declare war, you almost have to be able to go to total war to back it up, while in most situations where you want to attack a unit without declaring war,
11:12 <+Lucifer_arma> it's not likely to escalate to total war.  It's more likely to be "That wasn't nice, but I'll back off because I'm not ready for war either"

22:49 <DrJoeTron> jesus that took 20 minutes
22:51 <GodTodd> an eternity
22:52 <luke-jr> hm
22:52 <luke-jr> I lose civ-pirate game
23:01 <DrJoeTron> an eternity if your playing it on a ds
23:15 <Lucifer_arma> luke-jr: a civ pirate game?
23:15 <Lucifer_arma> er, I was thinking more like a pirate game that's roughly formatted like silent service, only you're a pirate in 1630 in the caribbean rather than a sub in ww2 pacific
23:16 <Lucifer_arma> you'd have to outfit the ship, pay the crew, buy food, ammo, powder, etc.
23:16 <Lucifer_arma> a good sail-powered war simulator, but turn-based
23:16 <Lucifer_arma> multiplayer, and you can pick if you want to be a pirate, a merchant, or a military vessel (they're all the same ships anyway)
23:17 <Lucifer_arma> you can buy and sell shit (unless you're military).  You can fight other players, maybe a loan system so when you sink another player he can still get a new ship
23:17 <Lucifer_arma> and have little quests show up every now and then, so you can go search for hidden treasure, magical artifacts and crap.  So not a perfect historical simulation.  :)
23:18 <Lucifer_arma> and you can bury your own treasure, but other players could unbury it of course
23:19 <Lucifer_arma> while I was thinking a 3d UI would be nice, it occurs to me the game could be reasonably written quickly if it were just 2d
23:19 <Lucifer_arma> use sdl, if you don't want to have to deal with widgets, use sdl+qt
23:25 <Vanhayes> didnt the guy who made Civilization make a pirate game too?
23:25 <Lucifer_arma> yeah, but it sucked
23:26 <Lucifer_arma> he also made silent service
23:26  * Lucifer_arma notes that Sid Meier has been around for a long time
23:27 <Vanhayes> ya, civ1 was made in the late 80s wasnt it?
23:27 <Lucifer_arma> early 90s.  Might have been 1989 or so
23:27 <Lucifer_arma> I knew kids in high school that played it, but didn't personally play it until a few years later, but before civ2 came out
23:29 <Lucifer_arma> I was thinking of copying a pirate board game my brother and I used to play
23:29 <Lucifer_arma> you have these maneuvering cards, and every turn you had to pick 3 cards and lay them face down.  So would the other guy
23:30 <Lucifer_arma> your ships moved over a grid.  The 3 cards were there to provide something resembling wind simulation, an obvious and effective abstraction
23:30 <Lucifer_arma> so after you picked your cards, you would turn each over in turn.  If you were in range, you could fire cannons depending on the orientation of the ships
23:30 <Lucifer_arma> ah, it was called Broadsides and Boarding Parties
23:31 <Lucifer_arma> so each time you turned over a card, you could fire if you were in range, so you'd always try to cross the T, which meant you could fire a broadside and the other ship couldn't fire shit
23:31 <Lucifer_arma> if the ships "collided", you went to boarding parties, where you positioned the two ship models next to each other according to their orientation and you boarded their ship and tried to take it
23:32 <Lucifer_arma> moving your figures around and stuff.  You removed the cannons because they weren't used and they just got in the way.  Once you took the other ship's captain, you won.
23:32 <Lucifer_arma> or, if you were the pirate ship, you could win by landing on the military ship's square
23:32 <Lucifer_arma> anyway, turning that into a multi-player networked game by itself would be a lot of fun, I think.
23:32 <Lucifer_arma> but I had some improvements in mind.  :)
23:33 <Your_mom_arma> i'ld like to be able to run around on the boat
23:33 <Lucifer_arma> You still get a regular top-down tactical layout.  Each turn you have wind, you can change your heading, change your sail rigging, and fire
23:33 <Lucifer_arma> everyone takes their turn at the same time, then the turn gets executed
23:34 <Lucifer_arma> so if you're going slow enough and you ram a ship, you go to boarding parties, but if you're going fast, you ram them instead
23:35 <Lucifer_arma> it's actually more like an old c-64 game I played called Balance of Power, which used spaceships
23:35 <Vanhayes> heh, thatd be fun, go full speed into the side of another guys' boat and see who comes out in one peice
23:36 <Lucifer_arma> well, what you do in the fight depends on what you want :)
23:36 <Lucifer_arma> if you're a pirate attacking a merchant vessel, you just want to shoot the masts and get them to surrender without boarding
23:36 <Lucifer_arma> if you're a pirate facing a military vessel, you want to sink them or disable them so you can get away
23:36 <luke-jr> Lucifer_arma: a civ pirate game :p
23:36 <Lucifer_arma> if you're a military vessel, just sink the pirates :)
23:37 <Lucifer_arma> if you're a merchant vessel, if there are no survivors and your crew is utterly loyal to you....
23:37 <luke-jr> needs some ruleset changes
23:37 <Lucifer_arma> so there'd be a campaign mode, right?
23:37 <Lucifer_arma> in the campaign mode you wonder around teh ocean looking for ships to fight
23:38 <Lucifer_arma> and your crew would have loyalty ratings, and if you did stupid things like run them out of food or stay away from land too long they might mutiny
23:38 <Lucifer_arma> the more treasure you build up on the ship the higher the chances of the crew mutinying
23:38 <luke-jr> well, I think one change would be
23:38 <luke-jr> start w/ Triemes
23:38 <luke-jr> :p
23:38 <Lucifer_arma> and you have to return to port every now and then to buy more ammo and food and replenish your crew
23:38 -!- ghableska [n=ghablesk@12-240-54-90.client.mchsi.com] has quit ["O_o"]
23:38 <luke-jr> and allow military to attack boats
23:39 <luke-jr> so you can have at-sea battles
23:39 <luke-jr> eg, load units on a boat and pull up next to an enemy boat and attack
23:39 <luke-jr> and conquer boats like cities
23:39 <Lucifer_arma> there's not an option in the ruleset for that
23:39 <luke-jr> or smth
23:39 <luke-jr> hm
23:39 <Lucifer_arma> you'd have to modify the code
23:40 <luke-jr> land units can't attack sea?
23:40 <Lucifer_arma> I looked for it, I wanted to make an artillery piece that could attack ships too
23:40 <Lucifer_arma> nope
23:40 <Lucifer_arma> and you can't force zones of control on ships
23:40 <luke-jr> lame
23:40 <Lucifer_arma> the airattack might suffice to make it happen, but it may require you to be an air unit to work :)
23:41 <Lucifer_arma> you'd have to modify the code anyway to let units take ships like they take cities
