that is fine that you don't know alot about abilities, nor did I when I started
you'll learn fast.
About "MakeDead" it IS what I was refering too, in a way. However, I have NEVER had any succses using that line, as it tends to crash the game randomly whenever I use it.
So whenever I have to use "makedead" I just cheat, and apply a TON of damage.
As too your other two questions.
it is NOT possilbe as far as I know to get frigates to work as a squarden
and making it timed would Not make the ability easier, it would make it harder.
As to your ability, it looks great, exept for three small issues.
since the ability doesn't level, wouldn't it be more logical to use Level source type of "reserchwithoutbase"?
as in the case of AbilityAntimatterRechargeModule
However, if this is going on a capitol ship, I sugest that you make the ability level.
second issue is that you are missing a Tab on FrigateFedPromA
And, I think you will have to add an Expiry time, just the way the game works. (for an infinite Expiry time, just give it a negitive one)
lastly, your finish condition is when all On Delay instant actions are done
yet, you have no On Delay instant actions.
I sugest that you make all actions on a delay of zero.
Have you tried this yet?
Lastly- I have reaserched the Cap issue. Thier is no known way to spawn a capship, exept for "SpawnShipAtPlanet" which doesn't help.
In short, your Promethius will HAVE to be a frigate, or have a REALY wierd recombineing ability.
