Bug Description

This flag has been wanted by the community since at least 2004, and it is time Ares addresses that need!

When we're done, CanMakeStuffUp=true will serve the purpose it was always intended for, in the most spectacular of ways.

This would be called joking (to both of you).

(tbh, I doubt this will be turned into a real issue)

I'm strongly opposed. It would require way to much work to fix such a minor bug. I recommend the implement the changes proposed in issue 0065535 instead.

I don't know how this tag works but I have an idea on how this tag will work.

[CanMakeStuffUpTypes]
Tag Name=ExistingTagName

If multiple tags;
Tag Name=1st Tag, 2nd Tag, 1st Tag params, 2nd Tag params

Okay let's say I want to create tag that consists of multiple tags with boolean parameters.
[CanMakeStuffUpTypes]
YayBoolean=Disableable,Explodes,Crewed,Insignificant,LegalTarget
ImmunityStuff=Immune,ImmuneToPsionics,ImmuneToRadiation,ImmuneToVeins,[other immune tags]
OtherTags=Armor,Speed,Cost,Sight,flak,6,500,4

I'm not sure if numbering in the TechnoType lists are important. If so I don't know any workaround on this. Consider YayBoolean as 1, ImmunityStuff as 2 and OtherTags as 3.

[TechnoType]
CanMakeStuffUp=true
YayBoolean=yes ; so this will 'override' all tags under YayBoolean to yes.
ImmunityStuff=no ; so this will 'override' all tags under ImmunityStuff to no.
OtherTags=yes ; so this will 'activate' all tags under otherTags and thus you cannot override it.

Some bugs that 'might' happen;
1. If the tags under the created tag have different input params could lead to...internal disaster in Layman's term.
2. If the tags under the created tag have the same input params but different application for [TechnoType] could lead to...internal disaster again. So having multiple tags under the created tags should be global to [TechnoTypes].
3. This might not be applicable to other things outside [TechnoTypes] like in [General], artmd.ini, aimd.ini, etc.

Well that's the logical explanation of my own idea.
