Self building is a method of letting a building finish constructing itself. Its main purpose is to be used in combination to the transform command (which allows a unit to morph into a building) by allowing this new building to finish constructing itself (otherwise it will need to be repaired with a repair command).

Build self skills and commands work largely like the regular be-built skill and generic commands. However, note the type elements as well as the difference between the type value attributes ("build_self" in the skill, "build-self" in the command).


Whether or not to display an button to perform this self building. If false, it will be done automatically, but always last priority (bottom of the queue).
