A question for the modders.

Would it be possible to add a timer of sorts to a structure (space or land)?

Example. The Pirate structure in sp skirmish that allows you to build pirate ships, would it be possible to add a timer that counts down. The timer would start once capped and would stop if enemy capped it?

Yes it's possible. The programmer in my mod could probably do it and no he won't so don't ask.

Could you elaborate on that please? Maybe someone who doesn't know what you're talking about could do... whatever it is that you're asking.

If I understand him proporly, he wants to make a new "game mode." In which you have to capture a sertan biulding and hold it for a set amount of time. If you enomy manages to take it from you, it is then your task to re-take it from them befor the timer runs out.

I'm not sure, but I think you'd need to do some Lua scripting to make that possible, but I'll check how the devs implemented the Death Star's timer.
