Has anyone found where armor is set for units now?

Deep in one of the modules, I think it's Damage or something. Pretty painful to change armor now, needing to go through multiple screens before reaching it from the UniteAuSol instance.

Along with all the morale settings, too.

Yeah it's quite the headache now.

You've got to go Damage > Default > Common Damage Descriptor > BlindageProperties

I know you can change models.
I know you can change names.

But can you change the unit card picture? I don't like the NORFORCE picture(nothing racist).
Or the card of the unit's weapon i.e. F-88 unit card picture is wrong, so is the LAAD Javelin's.

Haven´t tried it in RD yet, but you can certainly do that in ALB. I don´t know if you can change an infantry card´s background though...

If you are talking about the unit card picture, I'm pretty sure it's texture for interface, and change that to direct the unit to another picture. (It will still have the same flag) If you want to replace to a totally new picture, I think it is in ZZ_1, but you might want to ask Iris who already did this.

I've go two questions, actually.

First, how do you go about adding a transport option for a unit? I'd love to give Mountaineers more than one friggin' transport option.

Second, does anyone know how to adjust the RoF of a weapon? I'm looking to tweak it slightly for British tanks.

Both is definitly possible, you should look through the tutorial files in the ALB modding section.
