Poor design of UNIx/UNIS section

Hi,

So I learned today that UNIx/UNIS will not update any unit settings unless the flag for saying the unit settings aren't default is set.

See: http://www.starcraftai.com/wiki/CHK_Format#.22UNIS.22_-_Unit_Settings

Confusingly I would think a flag of 0 meant to use default values, but 0 means use custom values.

Curious that the flag can be set to 1 but you can still store in the CHK the modified values and SC will happily ignore them.



None.

I see you !

That is good design - that way if you disable custom settings, and later re-enable them, you didn't lose what you had configured.

hmm I guess I am thinking from writing UNIx programmatically.

I wouldn't add custom settings if I didn't intend to use them.

I guess from using the GUI it makes more sense to do it this way.



None.

extract the scripts using pympq and open them in pyai (using the python modding suite) and use nekron's guide as a reference
