Although you can make hijacker in ra2 with tag ''VehicleThief = '', but they cannot auto hijack their target, make it pretty useless and AI cannot use this. But i think i've found a way to create a auto-attack hijacker and it is very easy.
Just copy the DroneJump weapon to your hijacker unit ,copy the Parasite warhead and add this tag
"MindControl=yes", set the Verses only affect Vehicle. Finally, if you have time, add a new projectile image and your are done. Now your hjacker should auto target any enermy vehicle, get inside the vehicle, and mind control it, work as a offensive hijacker and the AI can use it now.
Beside that, you can add coustom sound to your hijacker when they hijack vehicle , just change the Report tag of the weapon to the sound you want. I add a scream like sound to the weapon, so when my hijacker hijack vehicle , it sound like the driver of the vehicle is killed by my hijacker, very funny.
But there's a downside, because the mindcontrol tag, it will create the mind control line between the hjacked unit and hjacker, although the hjacker has disappear , the line remain there, draw between the unit and the position where it get hijacked but i think it's acceptable.
Some people may not want their hijacker to auto target, so i suggest give this to the AI and keep the original one or add a deployed secondary weapon with no damage at all . When u don't want to use the hijacker, just deploy them, then they won't auto attack anything, and when u find out a huge force come to you or something is worth hijack, undeploy them
I hope this method useful and sorry about my english because it's not my mother language.
