Many people find themselves becoming fed up with the Alamo Engine, but I know a few tricks to do almost anything. Want to make a beam weapon? Forget all that nonsense about firing off many projectiles in succession! This does not always work and there are better alternatives. Try using the drain life ability. An effect can be made in LightningEffectTypes.xml to make the attack appear to be a beam weapon. Want to make a projectile spawn a unit on detonation? Well, all projectiles have a detonation particle, and particles are capable of behaviors, even SPAWN_SQUADRON.

Remember these tricks, EaW:FoC modders, and e-mail or message me with any questions! If it's EaW XML coding, I probably have your answer!
