Has anyone tried to have home city cards that can be sent in the 5th age before? Is it possible or hard coded?

I'm trying to make the deck allow 5th age cards. I modified the UI to allow space but they dont automatically go where they should. Does anyone know What file tells the different age cards where to go?

Hey Checanos! Long time no see Mr. Green

I considered it once, but dropped the idea then. Don't think it's really worth the effort, adjusting all the UI files and such. Age 5 homecity is kinda meant to offer a final wave of support with all prior unit cards being infinitely sendable and since you get less cards as the game proceeds the HC is losing its significance already at the end of Age 4. So if you really think a game lasts very long in Age 5, you'd with the current system try to add the best Age 4 unit cards to your deck.

A bit of a different thing are treaty games and those starting in post-imperial age, but well, you aren't missing any cards there either.

One reason I dropped the idea was that I preferred the game would end due to player skill and not because someone sent an imba/OP card.
