this is a very simple mod which will replace the cheat unit 'the tommynator' with an
extremely skilled modern day soldier.
orriginally it was going to be an aoe3 version of the aoe nuke trooper but i got inspiration for something more
awesome half way through.
artwork is not complete but completely the new skin and all the coding is done.
this new unit is created via the 'tuck tuck tuck' cheat which created the tommynator orriginally.
my unit features some pretty cool abilities.
first and most boring is the heal ability.
the next ability is just the ability to throw a grenade which takes out alot of units in one throw.
the third 'surveylence' is almost the same as the portugese 'spyglass' but lasts far longer.
and the final one is something that took a bit of coding. its basically gives the ability to plant an explosive
anywhere within you's or your ally's LOS but abiding to the rules of not too close to your enemy.
the explosive works like a proximity mine. exploding when an enemy walks past killing all enemies in a large area.
this new unit does not use standard tactics. i created some new ones which are way more awesome. instead of having a volley
and a stagger for example, the new tactics are used to switch weapons.
my unit can use 3 different weapons.
ak-47: which takes out most units quickly. slow reload makes it not the most effective against large groups of units
but the quick fire rate is excellent for taking out a few enemies.
magnum sniper rifle: the high range which keeps him out of distance. excellent for taking out villagers inside the
enemy base when used with the surveylence ability.
shotgun: my personal favourite. cause's massive damage and an area effect. downside is low range and inaccurate.
there is a chance that it doesn't hit anything at all or takes out 4 units in one hit. excellent against massed enemies.
knife: there is no meelee tactic but in addition to each weapon the nuke trooper will use a knife in meelee which is instant
kill in most situations.
this unit will also be now avail in the scenario editor.
provided with download.
suggestions, comments and definetly ideas for what i can turn the other available cheat units into are welcome.
