Editing Units

All possible codes to edit units

-Step 1. Open rules.ini
-Step 2. Search for the unit you want to edit,

We are gonna edit a GI this for time. The name of the unit is: [E1], you could also search for "GI" untill you get to the [E1] part.

You see this:

Occupier=yes ; I can Occupy UC buildings
ThreatPosed=10 ; This value MUST be 0 for all building addons

This are all the stats of the unit. You could edit the weapon, speed, cost, buildings needed, tech level and lots of more stuff.

-Step 3. Add C4 to GI
We're going to add some C4 to the GI (the same that Tanya and SEAL have)

Just make sure this code stands between [E1] and ; British Sniper [SNIPE]:


Your GI now has C4.
You can add all kinds of codes.
-BuildLimit gives a limit to the chosen unit.
-Cloakable makes your unit invisible
-Explosion makes your unit explode if it dies.

Here are all possible Statistics of rules.ini:

    Um, you should really add some formatting -- no one likes reading walls of text. Also, make use of the <br> tag to space things out a little. I did the first chunk for you as an example.

    Thanks, I didn't know I could use html tags here. I thought this used [bb].
