Put the type id of the unit that should have this ability there. Look in the unit's file, in the [unit_type] tag, the id= key (The one that you would use for recruit lists, for example).

Put the whole event in the [unit_type] tag of the units that have this ability.

This.

Each of your units have a [unit_type] tag somewhere which describes the unit. In this [unit_type] tag you have to put the whole event.

Have you coded your first unit yet? If not, open a unit from mainline (in data/core) with some text editor (like note pad - not word!) and notice how the whole code is surrounded by these:

Code: Select all

[unit_type]

# Code here

[/unit_type]
These are tags, more precisely, unit_type tags. [event]s can only work in three places: in [unit_type]s, in [era]s and in [scenario]s (or any equivalent thereof, like [multiplayer]s)

Oh, now I know, It's that thing that is at the end of each part of the unit, but how do I use it to put the event or how do I get what the unit type is from there. :hmm:

Wait, what?

Code: Select all

[unit_type]    <--- starting tag of unit_type
	id=YourBufettingUnit    <--- type id of your unit
	name= _ "Your Bufetting Unit"
	hitpoints=56
	...     <--- more information about your unit, for possible keys see Crendgrim's UnitTypeWML link
	[event]    <--- Reepurr's code
		name=attacker_hits
		first_time_only=no
		[filter]
			type=YourBufettingUnit    <--- type id of this unit
		[/filter]
		...
	[/event]
[/unit_type]    <--- closing tag of unit_type
I'm not sure if I understood right, though.

As creating a faction/era is always tied to learning WML, start doing so by reading the Create wiki page and ReferenceWML for information about how WML works and how to create stuff with it. Don't worry, it's very user-friendly and readable once you've understood the basics. For further questions and problems with WML ask in the WML Workshop.

I know the basics. I just wrote an unclear sentence. I just don't think the "buffet" works.

And... What do you mean by "three worlds"?
Some magical disaster brought three worlds together, one in which elven women are traditionally serving in army, one where firearms exist, and some third one perhaps? Or what?
Sprites look good, gunner looks great, but as for "female warriors", I suggest using different heads and faces (or at least different clothes) for different units.
IMPORTANT: I thought art goes into Art Workshop, doesn't it? This thread could be used for development of this faction, units design, ideas, feedback and general discussion, but units sprites possibly goes into "Powershot's Units", perhaps?
PS: I'm writing this because I'm worried. About mental health of Gambit and Shadowmaster, having to lock or move another one of your threads. :P
EDIT: And please, stop double-posting. Use "EDIT" button.

Ok, but as I said I can't post on the art forums, therefore I couldn't post more art.

This thread is also for the era coding too.

3 worlds, 3 factions, Female elvish warriors(or mostly, only male mages), Shapeshifters, and gunners.

Edit: 4 worlds: +Technofreaks
