I set the secret lab to have a custom paradrop when your engineer enters and that works but when I click on the paradrop there is no drop icon and the clock just resets.


Code:
************ American Paradrop Special Rules ***********
TechParaDropInf=CCOMAND
TechParaDropNum=30

; *** Super Weapon List **
; This is a list of the various types of super weapons available in the game
[SuperWeaponTypes]
;1=MultiSpecial
;2=EMPulseSpecial
;3=FirestormSpecial
;4=IonCannonSpecial
;5=HuntSeekSpecial
;6=ChemicalSpecial
;7=IronCurtainSpecial
;8=LightningStormSpecial
;9=ChronoSphereSpecial
;10=ChronoWarpSpecial
;11=ParaDropSpecial

1=NukeSpecial
2=IronCurtainSpecial
3=LightningStormSpecial
4=ChronoSphereSpecial
5=ChronoWarpSpecial
6=ParaDropSpecial
7=AmericanParaDropSpecial
8=PsychicDominatorSpecial
9=SpyPlaneSpecial
10=GeneticConverterSpecial
11=ForceShieldSpecial
12=PsychicRevealSpecial
13=TechParaDropSpecial


[TechParaDropSpecial]
UIName=Name:TPara
Name=Tech Paratrooper Drop
IsPowered=false
RechargeVoice=
ChargingVoice=
ImpatientVoice=
SuspendVoice=
RechargeTime=4
Type=TechParaDrop
Action=TechParaDrop

TechParaDrop is not a valid Type or Action, you can't just make things up.

If you're using Ares, try
Code:
[TechParaDropSpecial]
UIName=Name:TPara
Name=Tech Paratrooper Drop
IsPowered=false
RechargeVoice=
ChargingVoice=
ImpatientVoice=
SuspendVoice=
RechargeTime=4
Type=ParaDrop
SidebarImage=PARAICON
ShowTimer=no
DisableableFromShell=no ; gs this determines which superweapons are turned off by the checkbox
ParaDrop.Types=CCOMAND
ParaDrop.Num=30
ParaDrop.Aircraft=PDPLANE
ParaDrop.Count=5


For more information, see: https://ares-developers.github.io/Ares-docs/new/superweapons/types/paradrop.html

Not at all. Except for a few spots that could've been written better to make it clearer, the documentation is very straight-forward.

Laughing  Laughing  Laughing I do speak English, but it is not written in plain English it's written from the point of an experienced programmer using terms i had to look up the meaning.

Like reading a short legal document only to be told what you read is a case involving a speeding ticket, yeah it's written in English, but what are those English words ?

I've never heard them and I don't speak like that.

How about instead of complaining, you give us a passage you're having difficulty understanding and we'll help you understand it.

If you're having trouble understanding everything, no problem.
Just give us a passage/feature description you'd like to know about.

Adam: the point if not made clearly enough is you can't add new superweapons without Ares. If you want to create a new paradropping superweapon, you will have to repurpose one of the existing paradrops, the generic one which has unique infantry for each side, or the American one which will only drop one kind regardless of owner.
