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.
