is it possibleto create an entirely new ability like suicide for an a-wing
i think z3r0x made a ram abilty
No. Abilities are hardcoded. And as far as I know no one has figured it out yet. --Alpha17
Sort of. Using some FoC code, you could rename "core overload" "suicide" and give it to the A-Wings.
If you're taking about making it a kamekaze, then you could just make the ability force the A-wing target a ship, and when it is close enough spin out of control (like when it is dying) and explode.
it seems the ia2 team has look for the abilities on units
I didn't make it!
Abilities are hardcoded. PG confirmed this during the last dev chat on IRC. Kamakazee can be done...with some neat XML tweaks. If you really wanted to get fancy you could do the model a certain way to work for this.
