Since some of you asked about how do we create these "new" abilities for our Vong units, I decide to share with the community this file containing all special tags, active abilities, passive abilities, special attacks and special projectiles. It is a compilation of codes I created based on going through most of the game files. Therefore, I strongly advise you to always use "Find in files" option to see, where & how the piece of code was initially used. There are some heavy restriction in terms of crashing or not working when you are trying to implement some of land abilities into space though (usually because land units use a different locomotor), so be aware of that :/ On the other hand, without error and trial this mod would never be able to create abilities never seen before...

I will have a lot of fun reading through this... ;) Thank you!
[EDIT] BTW, I am unable to download this. Both on the primary and from all mirrors I get this error:
This page contains the following errors:
error on line 7 at column 1: Extra content at the end of the document
Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.
SELECTABLE, SHIELDED, POWERED, TACTICAL_SELL, TRANSPORT, TEAM, CAPTURE_POINT, TACTICAL_BUILD_OBJECTS, DUMMY_ORBITAL_STRUCTURE, DUMMY_STARSHIP, DUMMY_CANT_PATHFIND, DUMMY_SPACE_FIGHTER_SQUADRON, DUMMY_STAR_BASE, DUMMY_GROUND_COMPANY
aaaah, I have to upload in a .rar /zip, since otherwise it tries to read the xml code, which is obviously not working :D
thanks for letting me know ;)
Thank you. Perfect timing. You posted this the same day I was having trouble with adding unit abilities. lol.
I'm still having a problem adding abilities. if i give a unit more than 1 ability. All of the abilities disappear.
