bug #10703 has something similar but more options, so closing this one as duplicate.

It would be nice for UMC to have the ability to modify the amount of damage poison inflicts on a unit. Of course this feature wouldn't be for mainline, but would be a great asset to many usermade maps.

Possible method of accomplishing this could be by setting unit.status.poisoned= to hold the number of poison damage the unit has. If an assassin for example hits it, then the unit would have status.posioned=8, and if a custom unit for example hits it when it has a weaker poison, then it would set the status.posioned=4. Whichever value is higher would remain though, so if the unit was already poisoned with 8 damage, then 4 damage poison wouldn't change the poison value. And obviously the [poison] special would need to have a poison damage value of course.

Only issue would be, how could you clearly show what damage type of poison a unit has? Determining the value wouldn't be that hard for a user, since without much trouble people would probably understand which units dish out what value of poison. Either way, since this wouldn't be for mainline, then it wouldn't be that big of a deal to have this clearly established, but it would be a great tool for UMCers to have.
