ability_ext: This extension allows for abilities to be granted to entities.
ability_table: See the tables section for a full explanation.
addon_ext: This extension allows entities (mainly buildings) to have add-ons.
chance: The chance that the aftermath event will occur.
duration: The duration of the aftermath effect.
block_line_of_sight_ext: If a entity is given this extension it will block line of sight. Note that you should not add this extension to too many entities as its use is computationally expensive.
building_engineer_ext: This is the ability that sets the unit as a builder unit.
anim_lead_in_time: not used
building_ext: Entities with this extension are considered buildings.
advanced_build_option: A Boolean variable, set to true if this is an advanced build option (no longer used?)
air_dropped: Boolean variable, set to true if this building needs to be air dropped in. Not used?
build_menu_prority: The priority that this building is assigned in the build menu.
power_gift: The amount of power given to the player when this building is finished constructing.
requisition_gift: The amount of requisition given when this building is finished constructing.
combat_ext: When given this extension, this unit can enter combat.
accuracy_multiplier: A multiplier assigned to the accuracy of all weapons.
complex_upgrade: If set to true allows you to update a given weapon a number of times.
In essence normal upgrades are those where a trooper can upgrade one (and only one) of their weapons from any of their hardpoints. Complex upgrades, on the other hand, allow a trooper to upgrade any one of their hardpoints multiple times (until the last weapon on that hardpoint is reached). Complex upgrades only apply to troopers with a squad size of one (ie vehicles, and force commanders). Also note that complex upgrades also work for sergeants since they are a single entity and they dont have a squad. For most vehicles, you will want the complex upgrades to be built from the UI. To do this you have to give the squad for that vehicle a SquadReinforceExt because you need the reinforce queue. All other complex upgrades (like the force commander) will be done through Research Upgrades. The max_upgrades parameter in the SquadReinforceExt is ignored for complex upgrades. There's also a catch: The game does not support squads that have both a can_attach_ext and a reinforce_ext. To support this, we would need to merge the reinforcement queues of the squads when they attach/detach. What this basically means is that all units that can attach and have complex upgrades, like the force commander, can only be upgraded using research items (see below for more info.) Note that there exists a check in OnInit of the game, so if you accidently create a squad with an attach ext and a reinforce ext the game will fail to load and an error will be logged to the logfile.
