That's very interesting. I would like to know how TClasses work and how to eliminate the 40 species cap... if possible. Also, maybe there's a way to assign additional species their own Unit Id's (so that raptor variants will only flock within their respective group,etc.)

Games designed with limited memory and disk space in mind typically use something called a "STRing POOL" to store repeated text. For instance if a binary file needs to represent the string "testing" it can either write 8 bytes (null terminated string), or a 2 byte short that references a string pool to determine what was actually written. It's extremely likely that's what this file does.
