I found figured out how to incorporate the Chaos Havoc Marine squad mod into The Steel Legion mod(it wasn't too hard).Now I have the Havocs whenever I play Chaos in that particular mod.My question is how do I : A. Make the unit team colorable?(the generic color sux) B. Make the game allow more that just 1 Havoc unit at a time? C. Give the Chaos Space Marine the same heavy weapons as the regular Space Marine? I understand that it all has something to do with the Attributes Editor but I don't see the chaos_havoc_marine listed anywhere.Can someone show me how to do these things at least the team colorable part.

P.S. I tried to contact the mod designer but there's no contact info.These adjustments are for my personal use ONLY!!!

To make a unit team colorable you need a WTP file for them. My Modifying Patterns tutorial contains details of what files are required in a WTP, or Danimator made an article called Making TGAs from RSH files: An Amateur's Guide

I'm not sure on the actual mod and how it is distributed, but unless you want to get your hands really dirty and use one of the command-line RGD editors (which I've never used) then you need the original source LUAs to be able to edit the unit. Since it isn't showing in the AE, I take it it doesn't come with them.

As for the heavy weapons, it involves work with 3DSMax (around $3000, I think) to model the new weapons, animate them and include them in the game. Making the WA Chaos Marines have the original DoW weapons should be possible, though, since the weapon models and animations will still be there for WA. All you would need to do is add them back in to the weapons table.

Hope that helps.

To edit RGD's, there's a new version of RGDEdit just out, it's really simple to use, readme is in with the download: http://rapidshare.de/files/26747802...t0_711.rar.html

Thx IBBOARD.I was able to do every thing you said up to the extract tga part. I understand that the 5 color areas (i.e. Primary,Secondary,Eyes,etc.) control teamcolorability. I'm using GIMP2. Now how do I undo the mods default color which I can't seem to change and make it accept the changes that I make to my squads in the Army Painter? Did I explain that correctly?

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Do you mean make a non-teamcolorable unit teamcolorable? If you do, follow Danimator's tutorial to make the TGAs and then follow my Making non-teamcolorable areas teamcolorable tutorial. It doesn't "undo the mods default color" but it does give it a teamcolorable texture that the default RSH then automatically loads.
