How to make unit from scratch...?

The data editor's so confusing... like if you create a unit, it's just blank. What are you supposed to do to actually make a unit...?

You need to give the unit an Actor - just do Add Object (or Duplicate) on the Actor used by your base unit, and Copy Settings From (if you used Add) the actor which your base unit is using.

After that, check the fields to make sure they are set up correctly (e.g. the Token field at the top will link the actor to your unit), and keep an eye on Events, and model-related fields - these have a nasty habit of changing the modelfile (and animation names) to CustomUnitName rather than pulling them from the source actor, and the Events may still link back to your base unit (so, if there is any Actor Event related to your base unit, just change the Source Name for that particular event to your new unit's name/ID)

    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.

    That is why I did not take the job Blizzard offered me back in the day, there is no way I could have moved my family there on what they were offering, not even close and that was like 20 years ago
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah they wanted me on the tech support team when they did not get me they got one of the next MVPs in Dinobot
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot was one of the youngest of the MVPs tkron probably could have worked for Blizzard but he had a good job in Chicago doing business programming already
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot probably still works for Blizzard would love to reconnect with that guy
  • The Helper The Helper:

    This new version of Xenforo really is awesome
