Orbital drops!
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

I would love to do that - can't think of a way to achieve it though sadly, there just isn't a unit type that allows that sort of thing. :/

Thermal pods. :)
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

That, on the other hand, I'm pretty sure I can manage  :D

Burrowing units, ones that go into the ground and can't be seen until they move, and even than there is only a small dust cloud.

On a more boring level, replace the bow sounds with laser sounds? Can that be done?

Good news, I just found a bunch of files sitting on my old computer from when someone tried to make a Star Wars RTW mod. This could be helpful. :)

Nice :) I was thinking about the orbital deployment of troops and although I know jack armadillo about how RTW works I was wondering if you could implement it like a reinforcement wave deploying where you direct them to?

I'm pretty sure there's no way of getting reinforcement waves that appear in non-standard ways - probably hardcoded.

I've had a thought, I know that Arcanii in vanillia can hide anywhere, so is there perhaps a way to hijack that and make invisibility? Could be quite fun for sneaking round to sabotage someones engineers!

Not sure how plausible this is though

Nope - again, it's a hardcoded effect and only covers hiding whilst immobile.
