Hello everyone, this is a guide that will go through almost all of the modules that can be found with the Achilles mod when Zeusing. I will go through each category and will give a description of what each module does. The categories will be listed from top to bottom.
This guide took me a couple of days to write, so feedback is much appreciated, let me know if I helped you out or if there is any additions you think I should add!

It will also allow Zeus to choose if that unit is combat ready, meaning that if "Combat Ready" is selected to false, the unit will not stop performing the animation if it starts to get engaged by enemies, but it it is set to true, it will stop the animation and engage back.

Allows Zeus to select the size of the explosion, effect of the explosion patrol radius and activation distance, as well as if the selected unit will wear a visible vest or not. It will also allow Zeus to choose at which side will the unit look for and detonate once it is inside the radius.
