Basically, while I wait on advice on how to re-texture models, I want to at least add the unit I want to add into the game. What I want is to do something like when you call in Han Solo and Chewbacca into battle: bring them in at the same time. I want to make it so that my Vaan and Penelo Hero Units do the same thing, but I don't even know how to add the ground unit data to the XML. Can someone help me?
Find the relevant entries for Han and Chewie and you should be able to copy their information and use that as a template. I think the most important one would be the 'Han_Solo_Team', or something like that.
Having issues finding that XML, for some reason, even in the MEG File holding EAW Original's XMLs, I can't find the Han Solo XML...
He won't have his own .xml, he will be in the Named Hero Units.xml and there might possibly be something in the Hero Companies.xml
I can't seem to extract it properly. Once I extract it, for some reason, I can only see it if I open 'Extract Files' again. It won't open in Notepad, or Wordpad. Also has this little bronze lock symbol over it. EDIT: Wait, nevermind, I just extracted to My Documents and it worked alright.
New issue: this doesn't help me incorporate the ground hero units into the XML...tried looking at others, and that doesn't help.
Off topic, but I just sent a PM with link for a texture I did for you to have look at

It's kinda hard to belive no one has mentioned this already, but use this in the future when your looking for a XML file. It's easier than trying extract them from the MEG files.
Like I mentioned, that doesn't help me put a dual-hero unit into an XML dedicated to a certain Hero Unit pair. That's mainly because, as far as I know, the Han Solo/Chewbacca team's the only Hero Unit pair that use the same transport, but are independently controllable on the ground, and they do not have their own XML. Besides, I already know about that download, so it doesn't help me any.

Here's what the Han and Chewie team code looks like.

First download this if you don't have it http://empireatwar.filefront.com/file/GenericLanding;106617 After you have it just follow the instructions in the download, so your heroes can use the Crusader as their transports. When your done, just change the Company Transport Unit to the name of the ship. Your heroes will still use their modified Crusader in space.
