This tutorial will show you how to change the damage the nuclear missile deals HOWEVER if you select a different unit you can also change their attack/hp/shield etc. with the same method that follows
Once again you will need to
Step 1 - Follow the tut here on how to use winmpq http://www.bwhacks.com/forums/mods-mapping-tutorials/24125-how-winmpq.html and extract all the files to a directory for later use

Step 2 - Download & Install Starcraft.org - The Number One Source For All Things Starcraft (http://www.starcraft.org/downloads/CustomsDownloads/Beginners/Arsenal%20III)

Step 3 - Run Arsenal III and select Weapon Editor Then File ---> Open---> browse to the Directory you created ---> and look in /arr for a file called weapons.dat (we're using this one so that we can keep the default one for a backup) then goto Other Weapons ---> Nuclear Strike

Step 4 - Change the damage you wish the nuke to have
once you have it set click File ---> Save as and save over the weapons.dat in the folder you created earlier

Step 5 - Create a new mpq and select the file you want to add, and just like the first tutorial you have to have it in the right place.
it should look like this


Step 6 - Close winmpq and follow the tut http://www.bwhacks.com/forums/mods-mapping-tutorials/24126-how-mpqdraft.html for loading your new mpq

*if you modify more then one weapon in the weapons.dat you still only need to add it once so you can change the marine ghost bat etc. and still load only one copy of weapons.dat
*attached is a mpq for a nuke that will do OVER 9000 dmg (single player only or if everyone in your online game have the same mpq loaded)
*WHAT 9000!!!!!1111!!!1
