Specifies the animation to display in the cell occupied by this overlay. The animation must be included in the [Animations] list and defined in the ART file, plus it should also be a theater specific animation (since, like the overlay itself, it is displayed with the same theater-specific logic which requires Theater=yes in the ART file). This is was used for the big blue Tiberium crystal in Tiberian Sun but is unused in Red Alert 2 although it would have been a much simpler way of implementing the 'Ore twinkle' effect - the animation will only display when the overlay itself is present in the cell. TIP: attaching an invisible animation to the various Ore overlays and giving it HideIfNoOre=true and a Damage= value in the ART file is a crude way of implementing the effect where units suffer loss of health when stood in Ore, as they did in Tiberian Sun.
