I am trying to make a really good mod and was brainstorming ideas for it when I started thinking about military ranks and Awakening of the Rebellion infantry. I have this idea where you build a infantry squad that starts out as a private and over the course of time and battles they rank up (already thought out ranks). Would someone like to tell me how I could accomplish this??? Also what would you think of this?? I think that I could probably do this through xml but don't want to go into .lua if possible. Thanks and hopefully you like this idea and will help me.

Would have to be done via LUA.

LUA's not that straightforward. you'd have to do massive amounts of coding which do not yet exist and there would be a LOT of trial and error. few people extensively understand LUA, as it is such a complicated thing.

i wouldn't say that, but it'd take a lot of work and practice to implement.

also, how do you mean this system would work? if you mean C&C style (during battles, units advance in rank if they kill enough), or Total War style (units gain experience if they are successful enough in battles, and level up on galactic map, but not during battles)? total war, as d3 said, could be done, but the CNC method isn't possible, to my knowledge.

Luckily I want the Total War style where units gain experience and rank up if they are successful in battles but it is on the galactic map. Do you want me to post how I would figure how the whole system will work?? Thanks

afraid i don't actually know how that would be done. i just know it's very difficult.
