Unit abilities
« on: June 04, 2017, 04:34:22 am »
Is there an xml that controls the unit abilities like power to weapons and such? I've looked for it but am not sure where they are but I know there has to be one that says use this icon for this ability and such.

There is no such xml.
Abilities are defined in the engine's source code exclusively. Detailed attributes for the abilities are defined within the unit itself.
What you are looking for are the alternate tags:

Code: [Select]
<Alternate_Icon_Name> </Alternate_Icon_Name>
<Alternate_Name_Text> </Alternate_Name_Text>
<Alternate_Description_Text> </Alternate_Description_Text>

Thanks I always wondered how everyone was getting those special icons and tags. I've manipulated plenty of abilities to do what I want but hate that they keep the original icon and description.
