Re: How do I make excutable icon of the mod?

Go directly to your dow2 directory to the executable, right click it, select create short cut, and then put that short cut on your desk top.

Re: Will there ever be more chaos Upgrades?

In my mod i am going to implement a "doctrine" type thing that is taking complete inspiration from CoH2's commander options that slightly change or "enhance" a certain type of play style. Initially when i implemented this a player could change their "doctrines" and they...

Re: Tyranid Anti-garrison strategies

Spore mines do no function like grenades vs garrisons since they do not have that weapon type which determines how a weapon damage reacts to buildings. Spore mines only hit the models that are in the windows as the other models are technically "not there" making spore mines actually piss p...

Re: Whirlwind Idea

Well yea but in 1v1 is pretty pathetic imo. Just make to 3 volleys with two missiles with decent accuracy and maybe even slightly faster projectile speed. With 3-4 seconds between each volley. And a 8 second reload time. That way is only does mass KB if the enemy is blobed up and it can effectively ...

Re: True40K Mod

The Maps seem large at first in 1v1. But once you start playing vs another player the large feel of the map will shrink. I have thought in a similar fashion until i started playing friend when I wanted to test things. 3v3 Maps imo are too big as well. But i have not gotten enough people together to ...

Re: Limiting nob squad purchase to one squad

Nobs do have a lot of supporting abilities yes. But you have to look at what the squad offers first by itself. Nobs are expensive out of the gate. And it become a point that nobs are infact useless without their upgrades of meanier and greener. Nobs are pretty much required to play around the frenzy...

Raveners will lose their burrow ability and their jump I believe if they get their dedicated range option. As for the whirlwind It will never be purchased much at all. Even in team games imo.

^^ that is a fair point. Their model count is on the high side. I would kinda would like them to having their range damage do physic_pvp. As strange as that sounds it opens up their versatility and can make them dangerous even in range combat. Since they actually tank ALOT when in heavy cover (if th...

Re: Limiting nob squad purchase to one squad

They are supporting unit and a good combat unit. Plus they can disrupt ALOT. If the aura was exclusive and didn't stack it would b possible to limit them to two instead but I doubt people would want that nor does it make a lot of sense here since you want/ need those auras as elder later in the game...

Ahhh that makes it super clear.

That info is found in the tuning_info.rbf

There is a last stand tab that has all the information for the heroes such as leveling and ui_info which holds the naming of this and that.

You should be able to make your own separate UCS file though. And then put in your own strings. I mean I have over 1000 stings in my mod. And most are for new units and I have also changed the name of older units. Or are you not using Cope's? Because that App allows you to do that. If you want to ch...

Yes but you would lose any ground you gained from a push because your units would have to go back to base period because everything can damage them and they are slow. I don't think it could work tbh. The vehicle thing works because only one thing can effectively hurt the fex. IF this would be a thin...

Dow 2 uses UCS files. You cab just chabge a UCS value under squad info that has their name basic description etc.

You are in a -dev mode for the most part. If they want to use the campaign then they just need to remove the launch options.

What nurland said. As you said as well, tyranids cannot repair so they would have to go back to have the heal. With this change they would have to go back to and from the base more frequently.
