I'm trying to make a version of Alternate Form (Heroic) with a multiple effects container inside it. I don't want a whole other heroic form, since some of the powers are the same no matter what, I just want to be able to have modular attack type powers. I'm mostly wondering how do do this in the editor.

Although for some reason Array isn't available under Powers for the Alternate Form, you can still buy Alternate Effects on a Power in the Alternate Form, so all you have to do is start with (one of) the highest cost attacks and buy the others as AEs.

what I want to do is have an alternate Multiple Effect Container, not individual alternate effects

An Array makes the most sense to build this off of, but for whatever reason, Array isn't available as an effect under Alternate Form. Weird. One for Colen here.

I guess I could use Linked effects as just a container and ignore the actual meaning of the container

I'm not 100% sure what the issue is here - if you want some of your powers to be based under the alternate form, but not others, can't you just define them as regular powers on the hero? Only powers which are only active in a form can be defined under that alternate form.

I believe nosdaddy wants to make a character with an array of attacks in one alternate form, however the array option isn't presence within the alternate form container.

I did not find if this had been answered, but this is the problem I am having.

I am putting together a character who only has powers in his alternate heroic form, on of these abilities is an attack array. Is there a way to put an array into an alternate form or should i just use Alternate powers of the main powers as suggested by charlieluce above?

Thanks for any suggestions

You can still build an array by selecting the base power and then adding in alternate effects.
