Red Sun Over China

Red Sun Over China: The Second Sino-Japanese War by Pulicat

Special Rules Some special rules described below are unique to this mod, but unfortunately TripleA cannot code for their automatic implementation. Items below marked with an asterisk(*) indicate that TripleA will not automatically enforce the rule and you must keep the rules in mind yourself and take care to not violate the rule.

  • Technology There is currently no technology for this mod yet.
  • Territory Ownership All non-city territories initially under Communist or Nationalist control is considered "OccupiedTerritoryOf" Japan. This is so that the territory will belong to whoever recaptures it, rather than the initial owner.
  • Canals The Strait of Malacca: Movement between SZ 17 Malay Sea and SZ 21 Strait of Malacca determined by control of Malaya-Singapore.
  • Movement Through Cities Units may move through friendly-controlled cities at no movement cost. Since a land-canal option is not yet available for TripleA, currently all city-canal connections are coded as regular connections. Direct movement from one side of an enemy city to another is therefore possible but ILLEGAL.
