Flag: InitialAmmo
File(s): rules(md).ini
Values: Signed integers: All whole numbers from -2147483648 to 2147483647; in rare cases, only from -32768 to 32767.
Special Values: −1
Default: −1
Applicable to: TechnoTypes:

AircraftTypes, BuildingTypes, InfantryTypes and VehicleTypes

This flag determines the ammunition supply of a unit, with Ammo set to a positive integer greater than 0, when it is created from the corresponding Factory. Values for InitialAmmo other than −1, which is a special case, result in a starting ammo supply of that number plus 1.

Although usable ammo points are only measured in positive integers, it is possible to have a unit's current ammo be a negative number when it is created. If InitialAmmo is set to a negative integer less than −1, the unit will be created with no usable ammunition, and have an inversely proportional delay before it reloads enough to have a positive ammo supply.

If InitialAmmo is set to a value greater than Ammo, then the unit will be created with its current ammo equal to InitialAmmo. However, if the unit has PipScale=ammo, the pip display will innacurately represent an amount equal to Ammo until the unit depletes enough rounds so that its current ammo is no more than Ammo.

Regardless, a unit can never reload its ammo by any means to an amount greater than Ammo, nor deplete its ammo to an amount less than 0.

Special values

  • InitialAmmo=-1 results in the unit starting with full ammo. This is also the default behavior.

  • If an AircraftType starts without full ammo, it will be unable to reload it until it leaves its docking building and lands on it again.
