hi, I found a tutorial on aom.heavengames.com, how you can edit buildings in Gmax or 3ds max. I downloaded all the programs I needed and started to mod the Egyptian Barrack (age 2). But how do I put it inside the game, so I can use it in the editor? This is the tutorial I did: http://aom.heavengames.com/scendesign/modding/modelunitguide
I think you need to create a proto and anim for the unit as well. There are several guides around that will show you how to do this. Just look under 'modding'.
so if you wanted to create your own unit you would need the picture file, DDT file, and proto files so basically just follow any other guide for putting a character in. I found dark link and link so would it be ok to follow those instructions, put everything in those same folders but for my own unit? Damn, this is all very confusing.
