There isn't one.
You can't. You can only edit some of the properties of each ability. (eg. How much faster the speed boost makes the ship go.)
You have to add the abilities in the code for the ship or unit itself. Therefore you need to use sapceunitscapital.xml, spaceunitsfrigates.xml, groundinfantry.xml etc etc
You can kind of create a new ability, but your always limited by the type as to the thing you hear when it is activated and the icon for it, and possibly what lines can be used (very not sure on that one.) I think you could make a power to weapons ability that spawns stuff or perhaps even cause enemy units to receive greater damage per hit, try it and see if it works. You can only use lines that are already in the xmls (they are the ones the game can use), but ive noticed there is some unused potential (mostly just in galactic abilities) that could mean you could do a lot with abilities.
are there abilities in foc not in eaw, I am trying to get the eweb troopers into eaw, but the deply ability is not showing up, ofcourse I had to create new xml code after the eweb because of the differences between foc and eaw, using the original storm trooper code, but no luck, its not freezing or anything but there is no button for the deploy ability code I used in groundinfantry.xml TEXT_UNIT_STORMTROOPER Rebel_Trooper Plex_Soldier MPTL Rebel_Infiltrator UC_Rebel_Buildable_Anti_Infantry_Turret EI_EWEB_TROOPER.ALOEI_EWEB_TROOPER.ALOSELECTABLESURFACE_FX,WALK_LOCOMOTOR,IDLE,TARGETING,WEAPON, STUNNABLE, REVEAL,HIDE_WHEN_FOGGED,DAMAGE_TRACKINGYesNoYesyes1.0I_BUTTON_EWEB_TROOPER.TGAGeneric_Footprint, Good_Ground 0.8 20.0 .366 .537 0.820.0 3.5 2.0 2.0 Land Infantry .2 10 0.05 0.05 2 0.6WalkYes 2 1 2 4 02MuzzleA_00TURRET_BONE4.060360NoYes1.0Empire01010500100000No Armor_Infantry 310.0, 10.0B_Chest1yesProj_Hand_Blaster_Red330.09.0 10.0 0.250.1 Infantry, 1.0 Vehicle, 1.0 Air, 70.0 Structure, 1.0 Unit_Select_Storm_TrooperUnit_Move_Storm_TrooperUnit_Fleet_Move_Storm_TrooperUnit_Attack_Storm_TrooperUnit_Guard_Storm_TrooperUnit_Storm_Trooper_FireUnit_Stormtrooper_Death Unit_Assist_Move_Storm_Trooper Unit_Assist_Attack_Storm_Trooper EHD_Reinforcements_En_Route EHD_Reinforcements_Available EHD_Reinforcements_Cancelled Infantry Infantry Fodder1x135.0, 5.0Generic_ShadowB_Chest9999 Yes Yes Yes75.0AvoidAntiInfantryTurrets380.050.0200.0150.03.0f.5InfantryTEXT_TOOLTIP_STORMTROOPER TEXT_TOOLTIP_UNIT_CAPTURE_ABILITYTEXT_ENCYCLOPEDIA_CLASS_INFANTRY0.250.0DEPLOY1.0
Did you add the deploy ability for both the individual soldiers AND the squad? Plus, you need to make sure you've added that ability in both the normal ability code, and in the 'behaviour' code.
I am trying to get the eweb troopers into eaw
Eweb troopers runs on EAW, I added them on my own mod many months ago. There are only a few things from FOC that you can not add on EAW and probably nothing from EAW that you can add on FOC.
I figure out my own dumb mistake, I was expecting a button that I had to press to deploy, all you have to do is attack another unit and it deploys
