We will have transport ships and aircraft (hopefully soon). At that time, this map can be added.

I hear there are plans to introduce naval units.
Then maybe this map could be used with minor changes?

A transporter boat could be used in place of the heli to transport the engineers.

I hope someone will create these units some day - I do not think I am able to do that myself.

This is a really beatiful map.

As explained on IRC, we cannot define or change unit types in maps.

I created a new map with atol shaped islands, based on the standard patches. It is meant for one player against the computer only. Due to the multiple islands, (and the limited capabilities of the AI) the enemy does not undertake much action, but I still find this map fun; just slaying the enemy.

To be able to play this map, you need the heli to transport people.

Instead of making this map dependent on the patch at, I included some lua statements to turn the heli into a transporter in the "setup.sms" file of the map. However, I am not sure that what I did is an acceptable way of changing the heli unit. Please check this code! Also, this code does not survive a load and save cycle in the editor.
