hi i was wondering if it is possible to add the hunt ability to larger ships like corvettes and acclamtors or maybe even bigger like ISD or SSD. And can you add hunt ability to land units too......One last thing: can you add a unit that starts hunting as soon as you add it onto the map ( im lasy arnt i :cool: ) any help would be cool !!:D

Original idea, never tried but copying a fighter's HUNT ability and adding it to a large ship should work. The only thing why it maybe won't work as you planned is that I (we?) don't know how the ability is coded, so it maybe work only for fighters and land vehicles. To make a land vehicle hunt is the same thing. Copy it and play! To make a unit start using an ability... I think it's possible.

Space_Automatic-1.0 ...

Maybe you should try something like this. Don't know if it works, just copied here. At the ... maybe other things should go. Because I don't know that a hunt ability would be described in we have no inforamtion what does it need. Again: I've never tried these!

Exactly, but there is no possibility to give any ship or fighter 3 abilities.

It would be handy to give some Rebel ships the Hunt ability, since its only the Imperials which almost always have it (TIE fighter)

Which ones??? And then i mean un-modded. I believe it is none. X-Wing = Close S-Foils Y-Wing = Ion Cannon Shot A-Wing = Lure Enemies Corvette = Boost Engines Gunship = Boost Engines Neb B = Boost Shields Marauder = Barrage Area A.F Mk II = Boost Shields Mon Cal = Boost Shields Falcon = Invulnerability Luke = Lucky Shot/Close S-Foils Antilles = Weaken Enemy/Boost Engines Ackbar = Concentrate Fire/Boost Shields

well unmodded. i think it would be possible to add more than 2 abilities if someone was able to crack what ever had to be cracked, if that was possible then this game would be so much cooler than it already is(modded)
