Hi, I'm trying to mod the AT-ST so that it has two attacks instead of one: A rapid fire blaster cannon and an occasional shot from a grenade launcher. I tried looking in the Advanced Genie Editor tables but couldn't find a way. I remember installing a mod a long time ago that added a unit with two attacks so I think that it can be done. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks

If you are making this for a mod, I don't think I can help you, but if you are making if for a scenario - then I can.
If you want to switch between rapid and grenade attack you will need at least two triggers - one, which sets a rapid laser attack (this is to say, change reload time, projectile and blast radius if there is going to be a change of the blast radius) and one, which sets a grenade attack (reload time, projectile and blast radius if there is going to be a change of the blast radius). The trigger conditions should be determined by you - depending on the way you want them to be switched.
However, if you wish the grenade to appear among the lasers, I still think I can help, but it will be later as now I have to go.
How the hell did you even do that in less than 5 seconds, Lad?!

andrewcmunroe, you need to set a different secondary projectile unit ID and edit min/max total projectiles accordingly. Secondary projectile uses it's own attack values.
Darth Kiro, I don't think you understand OP's question...

I'm an old dude that occasionally lurks here because of my interest in Expanding Fronts. Haven't posted here in a long time but I'm glad I saw your question because I can help you with this.
To give a unit multiple attacks, you need to add it as a cannon type unit. Making an AT-ST like that would be really easy because the graphics don't need to change with the different attacks. If you have specific questions on how to do that just let me know, however I haven't used the newest genie programs so there may be better ways to add units now that I'm not familiar with.
