Also, do you guys know where I would find a place to code in a new projectile, I want to change the arrows to laser beams. I understand that I could go and take out the garrow.tga and replace it with a texture detailing the bew laser but I want to keep everything as is, just add it for these factions.
Below is a temporary model I made for a cloning factory, we hope to eventually allow for a moveable fortress, the fortress will still spawn on location however the difference is it can move about the map very slowly and will have limitations, so for example the CIS will have the Coreship as a base and if the CIS player so chooses they can move the base around the map with limited movement somewhat like the radius of the Balrogs jump, however in order to keep things from going over board perhaps the "fortress" cannot cross bodies of water and because there are bodies of water on every map this would prevent people from taken their fort and attacking the other guys fort which would pretty much end the game fairly quick. Of course if this were possible then I'm guessing we'd be doing away with fortress expansions but keep fortress upgrades. I believe that this would open up a huge amount of strategy and keep the gamer guessing and it would make scout units more employable due to the fact the there is no definite way of knowing where the fortress is unlike normal BFME maps.
So in summary
How do I change the projectiles using code?
What does everyone think of the prospect of using unit producing ships instead of stationary structures?
@ Matt, ya well mine could use some improvements as well
and if you're wondering about the huge console at the left hand corner of the clone facility well I was kinda thinking of putting a Kaminoan tapping away at it, and in the bacta tank type thing at the back a suspended body of a clone.

I'll have a look at it, I was just going to add the hide sub object code to all of the anims to hide the saber blade but keep the sabers in hand. There is a problem though and I think it has to do with shaders, that for some reason if the unit is standing in front of a structure or a very dark background then the saber disappears, something that's been happening to me, seems to be most obvious with the red version.
Yeah I saw that in your screenshot, from memory in your w3d material just enable the static sorting level and set it to a level 5 (5 is just to bypass the others..)

The core ship will be the CIS fortress. It will either have the Balrog fly ability or just a lift off/land toggle to fly around the map in set down in new places. Additional core ships may also provide mapwide leadership to all droid units? That would be more from episode one, but I think it fits the clone wars alright too.
The republic fortress we're considering will probably be an AT-TE. This will allow the republic to relocate at need as well, and also throw in some extra heavy firepower if needed, though with some risk involved. Additional AT-TEs would be built from a factory if possible, as opposed to by builders.

I recall the CIS coreships 'sitting' in the ground in special iron rings upon Geonosis. You could take that as inspiration, since you'll only have to make a dome, and not a total ball.
just realised I never mapped the window sills of the building will go back and do, right now am working on converting the CIS ship to a fortress
please take note that, until further notice, I don't care, so get lost.

@ ED: So should i use a different background for every person or one background for one person? Also the joining the team wuestion was a joke i want to help out though. Also who are the two in the last pictures? I thought only Mace Windu had a purple one! (just clarify from right to left )

The yellow is pretty bright, but yeah, I know what you mean. Yellow is only commanders (I think) though.
