You can group several vehicles together to form a unitset. In the mapeditor, you can enable and disable unitsets to make the selection of units easier. You can also define transformations that replace all units on a map by others. This is useful if you want to play a map with a different unit set than the one that is originally used by the map.
To define a unit set, you must create a unitset definition file, which is a plain text file with the extension .set . I suggest that you put all vehicles together with this unitset definition file into a single data container.
Here is an example for a unitset definition file:
MAINTAINER=Martin Bickel (email@example.com)
INFORMATION=This unitset is part of the standard ASC data package which can be obtained from http://www.asc-hq.org
The first line must always be #V2#. This is to tell ASC that this is the second revision of the unitset definition file format. It is still possible to use the files with the old format, but if you create a new one use this new format.
Each of the following lines starts with a keyword, which must be UPPERCASE, an equals sign and some data. The order in which the properties are defined is not relevant.
