Is it impossible to base a merc unit on a merc carrier station? I only end up with my base somewhere outside the map (desert) despite having the carrier placed right outside the Paran mainland.

That's what I did, but it still does the same thing:

 

Here are the relevant .ini entries:

 

[TargetArea074]

Name=Delta Station

Position=700000,700000

Radius=5657

ActiveYear=0

Location=3

Alignment=FRIENDLY

CarrierStation=TRUE

 

[TargetArea075]

Name=Echo Station

Position=870000,700000

Radius=5657

ActiveYear=0

Location=3

Alignment=FRIENDLY

CarrierStation=TRUE

 

--------

 

[TargetType072]

Name=SCB-125

FullName=SCB-125 Essex Class CV

ModelName=SCB-125.lod

TargetType=WARSHIP

ActiveYear=1950

DamagePoint=10000

ArmorValue=0

ArmorType=0

TargetValue=2500

UseGroundObject=TRUE

GroundObjectType=SCB-125

RepairRate=0.150

StartDetectChance=50

StartIdentifiedChance=0

IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0

MaxVisibleDist=15000.0

DamagedModel=

DestroyedEffect=ShipDestroyedEffect

DestroyedModel=

SecondaryEffect=LargeOilFire

SecondaryChance=100

 

[TargetType073]

Name=CVA-63

FullName=Kitty Hawk Class CVA

ModelName=CV-63.lod

TargetType=WARSHIP

ActiveYear=1961

DamagePoint=10000

ArmorValue=0

ArmorType=0

TargetValue=3000

UseGroundObject=TRUE

GroundObjectType=CVA-63

RepairRate=0.150

StartDetectChance=50

StartIdentifiedChance=0

IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0

MaxVisibleDist=15000.0

DamagedModel=

DestroyedEffect=ShipDestroyedEffect

DestroyedModel=

SecondaryEffect=LargeOilFire

SecondaryChance=100

 

--------------

 

And the merc unit is set up as a carrier unit with the merc attributes.

Well, what about the ground object itself? Doesn't it need to be MERC for the nation it belongs to?

 

Post the data.ini and merc unit entries.

Yep, turns out the carrier needs to be merc for the game to recognize it. So I just made a copy of the SCB-125 that I renamed MercCV where in the data the nation is 'merc' instead of 'usn' and now it works.

Yeah, that's what I meant (and didn't write) A Merc "nationalized" CV.
