Sounds like what I meant... Except, do You mean that You set _global_
parameters for Your agents, not for each unit? I guess so but wouldn't
it be better and not to hard to have the agent check the settler unit
for parameters/attributes specific to that settler?
Do we understand eachother here? :)

If it's not easy now, wouldn't it be fairly easy when the attributes
patch is applied? Then You can set paramenter on units, right?

It was quite a while since I saw something about attributes on the list.
I've been looking forward to playing with it... when it's done...
will it be done? :) (who was the author? You?)

/Daniel - sorry if I'm confused...

Now take a deep breath, smile and don't take life so seriously... :)
