Did a quick search for this and found I could move the siege tank and have it stand by an enemy unit to unsiege if I understood it correctly. But is there any way to unsiege a tank owned by a player without just creating a new unit? It can be a duke or regular if that helps.

Edit: SCRAP THIS QUESTION! I'm making a mod now. It's gonna be good.

Have you tried using an AI script like "Make these units patrol"? The only way I know to have the AI unsiege naturally is if its only target is too close in proximity to attack.

Although Heinermann didn't specify siege details, he made a huge post recently about http://www.staredit.net/topic/13823/ in the Theories and Ideas section. You could always pose the question there and he can probably get the exact details for you.

Just tried it. not much success. Those tanks stay put. The unit being close to it's target works. I've seen this happen before. it might need an AI script though.

I'm not aware of any way that will forcefully cause a tank to siege, or unsiege. It's a bit of an issue in my desert strike map, as the tanks like to sit at the edge of map, sieged up, and never move.

I use Order: Move on my sieged tanks and Order: Patrol on the mobile ones. The tanks will siege and unsiege themselves using these commands, but as above, sometimes they get stuck and never move.

lil-Inferno -- That's legit the only other map trailer I can think of, also by Tux

youarenotworthy -- The trailer in question uses that exact music I linked. In fact, it's the main reason I remember it at all, because originally I was thinking it was a Matrix map, but I think it only used that music and that's why i thought that.

youarenotworthy -- Thanks NudeRaider, I found that, it's not it.

the music is not exactly the same, so I'm not sure if it's another piece entirely or just another version but maybe this is it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k80m6oM1iK0 this would be the trailer to Tuxedo-Templar's Rush map.

youarenotworthy -- Thanks lil-inferno... I'm not sure if it was tuxedo templar. I remember his stuff being good too, but I can't find the trailer the guy made. I might be mistaken about his name. Either way, thanks. I'm gonna give up on trying to find it XD
