Adding squads to multi-player


Multi-player is very important part of a great mod, but as I saw, many moder not interested in it.
To add, modify squads or factions is not mystic science, I will write down how should you do it.

In the resource\set\ multiplayer folder you found the important files, lets see how do they work:
Please open resource\set\ multiplayer\squads.set with notepad.
(This is only a part of squads.set, because its too long to put the entire file)

code:
("squad_with1types" side(rus) name(snipers_d) c(0) g(soldier_9) c1(sniper:1) b(squad2) t(sniper_duell) cost(100) f(0))
("squad_with1types" side(ger) name(snipers_d) c(0) g(soldier_9) c1(sniper:1) b(squad2) t(sniper_duell) cost(100) f(0))
("squad_with1types" side(usa) name(snipers_d) c(0) g(soldier_9) c1(sniper:1) b(squad2) t(sniper_duell) cost(100) f(0))
("squad_with1types" side(eng) name(snipers_d) c(0) g(soldier_9) c1(sniper:1) b(squad2) t(sniper_duell) cost(100) f(0))
("squad_with1types" side(jap) name(snipers_d) c(0) g(soldier_9) c1(sniper:1) b(squad2) t(sniper_duell) cost(100) f(0))
  • "squad_with1types" means how many types of soldier be in the squad, use only what defined in the file, of course you an define define new ones too
  • "side" means the side of the unit, example jap, ger, usa, eng or rus
  • "name" is the name of the squad, and the name of its icon
  • "c" its charge
  • "c1" is the name of the breed which is using
  • "b" means where is the units icon, (infantry, tanks, hero units)
  • "t" its tag
  • "cost" how much is it
  • "f" fore

If you want to add a new squad, you have to copy one of these, and fill it with your data. Example I want to add a delta force squad. First, I looking for a good base text for it,
hmm, the elite is good for me

("squad_with3types" side(usa) name(elites) c(0) g(squad_4) c1(elite:5) c2(elite2:3) c3(elite3:2) b(squad1) t(all inf_only) cost(250) f(1))

This squad is support there unique squad member, but you can write how much you want to add from any type.

After I made the changes:

("squad_with3types" side(usa) name(elite) c(150) g(spe_1) c1(elite:1) c2(elite2:2) c3(elite3:1) b(squad1) t(all infan_squad stormtroopers use_charge) cost(250) f(0))

I placed it to an another button, I changed the number of soldiers, I replaced the original breeds in the set\breed\mp\usa folder with my new ones, and this is the result:
