Topic Subject:Max Units in Descr_model_battle.txt?

It seems I can't add any more units to descr_model_battle.txt
Any idea why? Is there a maximum? I thought there was a maximum to EDU units, but I can still easily add units there. So very weird.

Supposedly there is a hardcoded limit of 255 unit types. I am unsure if that appies to the edu or the other one, but I think it applies to the total number of units in the game, thus both.

Thanks! I figured as such and started to delete the mercenary unit 'types', and just copied their skins to the original units (adding the merc skins to sarmatian_auxilia, for example, and then deleting merc_sarmatian_auxilia, and then editing the units in EDU). This file was very sloppily constructed, btw! I think I managed to make a huge amount of space for new units without influencing the game in any way.
I've added more than thirty new unit types (and even more units) with existing skins by putting infantry on horses and taking cavalry off them =)
The only challenge left now is making them recruitable in EDB.
