To elaborate on what I said earlier, a unit is simply a text file with a special extension (.fus). Its animations, textures, sounds, etc are all just files that the text file points to (eg T.Texture[1]="Art/name"). Editing any of our units or adding new ones is a matter of editing or adding a text file with some LUA in it.

Creating a race is a matter of creating a new folder called 'MyRaceName' in the Unit folder and creating some units in there, then adding a few things to point to that race in the interface files (almost all of our interface is just LUA code in text files, you can completely change our interface to be, say, a first-person x-wing view [random star-wars mod thought]).
