Before I remake my anim, just wanted to be sure I'm not missing something.

I want a red light blinking at the top of radio tower (building) and it's using the wrong palette. I have tried with NewTheater off, as well as adding AnimPalette=yes, but it still shows wrong.

Do I just have to remake it?

Yes, the building animations have to use the same palette as the building itself.

I was going to ask the complete opposite of this question today, is it possible to use an animation that's using 'anim.pal' as an 'ActiveAnim(s)#='?

set
ShouldUseCellDrawer=false
on the animation. then it's using anim.pal

See the fireball anim on the tiberian sun refinery or the uncommented code still left in ra2's art.ini

Well too late for me, but I never saw an explanation/example for that, so thanks. I'll try it one day...

Don't burst his bubble of "YR+Ares added nothing worthwhile upon RA2" there. He mods vRA2, not YR.

Even you have to admit knowing the non-Ares way to accomplish this has more value either way.

Building anim usually relates to some functionality of the building while AE is mostly independent. Note that ShouldUseCellDrawer=false doesn't remap either, there is no advantage here.

Is there AttachEffectDamage, just like ActiveAnimDamage?
Smoke or fire (e.g. from chimneys) using anim.pal with normal and damage version seems useful enough to me.
