    I have a BIG question for the PA Modding community.

    So here goes...

    - I want to create a unit that can interact with all 3 layers Space/Air/Ground.

    - This unit would be a spaceship that can Land (Possibly with landing Gear), and drop-off troops

    - The unit could also produce troops internally as a factory.

    Would this be easy to implement?

    I’m Brand new to the community and would like to jump into modding.

    So kind of like a mix of an Astraeus and Unit cannon? I don't know if it can be done, but you could start by playing with the JSON files and see if you can land the Astraeus on the ground instead of hovering in the air. And for it making units internally, you may also want too look at the Typhoon and the Lob if you have PA:Titans.

    It would be like an Astraeus, but at a large scale, and if it would be possible to have a landing animation. This may be hard to implement. I will start with your advice and see if I can make an Astraeus land first.

    Do you know if Planetary annihilation also supports custom factions? So if I were to create a second faction, it would be selectable in the selection screen?

    I want to create one unit, code, and model it. If I am able to start with this one unit, I may be able to start a nice little mod pack.

    Yes, PA supports factions. Check out the Legion mod: https://forums.uberent.com/threads/rel-legion-expansion-released.71680/

    There is a wiki about making mods here: https://wiki.palobby.com/wiki/Planetary_Annihilation_Modding

    Also there is a bunch of stuff on modelling new units here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_RXrYUHtKK_bjlieXhxbkZLajA
