How to add units to a building:

attrib>ebps>space_marine_barracks>spawner_ext>squad_table

Make squad 8 say sbps\races\tau\tau_commander_squad.lua

That would allow the space marines to have the tau commander.


As for making a new unit. Youre better off just making a duplicate of the new sqaud you'd like to make. Say copy the tau_commader files and rename to tau_captain. Then do your editing from there. If youre looking to have new textures youll have to wait for the official tools(relic said they wont be releasing these) or 3rd party tools.

Cool glad they helped.

How to make a New Unit, Using the texture of another Unit:

Now lets say you wanted a duplicated tau commander. Goto attrib>ebps>races>tau>troops>tau_commander.rgd
Right click and extract the file.

Next goto attrib>sbps>races>tau>tau_commander_squad.lua
Right click and extract the file.

Now you'll have to use windows to copy and paste the tau commander's files. So using explorer(my computer) goto your game directory/dxp2/data/ebps + sbps, each time renaming tau_commander to what ever you like.

Next youll have to restart DOWModstudio and reload the mod in order to see those 2 new files. After you see the duplictes tho, its as easy as changing his specs and adding him to a building.

How to add adilities:

Lets use the skyray's missle barrage ability for example and say we want the pathfinders to have this ability(sounds odd but it would still work)

Navigate in DOWmodstudio to data>attrib> then to T of course and find tau_skyray_missile_barrage.rgd. We just need to make sure of the exact spelling here.

Next goto ebps>races>tau>troops>tau_pathfinder.rgd

Expand the ability_ext and you'll see 10 fields of where you can paste the abilities name. Paste it but have the name end in .lua NOT .rgd. Now you're ready to use that ability in game.

Keeping in mind if you want this ability tweaked you can use the copy and paste method to duplicate it and tweak as necessary, while not effecting the skyray's original barrage ability.

How to edit abilities:

Lets edit the tau_skyray_missle_barrage.rgd

Navigate to: attrib>abilities>tau_skyray_missile_barrage.rgd

Inside you can edit and how:
Recharge time:
recharge_time> Value=60
Damage:
area_effect>weapon_damage>armour_damage>
Range:
range> Value=40
range:
Requirments to use:
requirments>required_1-11> Here you can remove having to research this ability all together by removing "required_10".

To do so look at the middle window. Expand the tree required_10. Right click and delete all entries except "is_display_requirment"
