Hey Storm Chaser,
My question is when you code for a specific unit, for example the Blackout, how is the code implemented for the hundreds of Blackouts in the entire game. Is it by classes or? Just curious player learning Python :smile:

    I would recommend to ask FriendlyFixer about this if you want a precise answer for WC. But, I would guess that they use the approach of having some form of list and that every unit has a unique ID number in the list. When it comes to modifying the stats, I would guess that this is done by adding or removing tags and tweaking some numbers like the health count.

    I would assume a class that inherits something like airUnit (which inherits unit) and maybe implements the iUniqueUnit interface. I'm sure Axel is right about the database they can edit with an in-house unit designer they've built to input the graphics, stats and filters.That's just the data aspect of units, but the programming would use classes if designed competently.

    Thanks for the explanation guys. Both seems to be correct in assumption of how it works. @Axel L do you know how I can ask FriendlyFixer
