So far I have been able to create new fighters to fuction on land. They act as any other vehicle company, that is you can select and individual fighter and give it orders (whereas in space a fighter squadron functions as one).

I have also been able to get these units into space. So I could build them in the land units slot, send them into space with my fleet, and they would spawn along with everyone else (not in a carrier ship).

The problem I have encountered is that I cannot get them to act like a squadron in space. I have tried making a container and copying vader's squadron stuff, but I still cant get it to work.

Admittedly I half-assed it with the container, because I was pretty confused and things were getting messy (I was messing with like 5 xmls at once, so I was quickly lost).

So my questions are...

Does anyone know how to get a starfighter squadron to function on land (I would be perfectly content if they still remained a squadron on land, as opposed to them breaking up into individual fighters like snowspeeders)?

or,

Does anyone know how to get a land fighter group (like the snowspeeders) to function in space, as a squadron (ie, as one)?

You misunderstand me. I was giving snowspeeders as an example because not everyone has the same ground units I do in my mod - snowspeeders are the only ground flier that is in the retail game.

My goal is to make a unit that functions on the ground (like snowspeeders) work in space as a squadron (like tie fighters or x-wings)

pff Thats exactly what I want to hear. I have read my share of tuts, browsed my share of pages, and searched my share of this forum. I haven't been able to find what I'm looking for. Perhaps I should've chosen my keywords more carefully, but I have a feeling thats not were the problem lies. A link would've worked just as good as that, as would a reasonable explanation.

in the box, increase it to the number wanted in the squadron,(there has to be that many units in the company as well)

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!::::::::::::::Rant:::::::::::!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The point is (unless you can't get it) is to figure out the simple-easy things by your self and stop bugging forum members about it,there is 2 modding tutroils sticked, hell even looking at the xml would tell you how to do it, its called "Common sence", i am tired of n00bs says "How do i change scale" ,"how to switch models", or "how to change auto reslove health", i mean those are all simple things even for n00bs , and child's play for people like me.

Spoiler: Show
I am the best freelance coder after all

I mean "how to change auto reslove health?", well duh , you go the the line. Common sence people. "How to i put units in a squad(ron)?" as val pointed out, Common sence agian. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!::::::::::::::::Ranting Ends::::::::::::::::!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think my point was made out, and it was clear, now i am going to close my eyes for 60 seconds and when i open them, i never saw this thread but somehow i posted in this thread Edit: Thats the bottom line because Joseph Miller has spoken and thats a rap

give them a chance you were like them once,

was, i learned i read modding tutorils after tutorials and asking help people for help on the difficault stuff, i basicly grew up, besides, i knew what common sence was

and your hardly freelance, you have your own mod, thats not freelance

And how many mods am i partisateing in? Lets see: A Galaxy Divided, Reign of the empire, lets not forget Imperial Assault 2 : Rise of the Empipre (sort of)
