How to Set HP Bars on top of all units all the time

Hey, I didn't know where to post this question, this is the closest forum to post it.

As the title says, I need to be able to set HP bars all the time on top of units. This is possible in AOE 2 because ZeroEmpires did it in his mod a long time ago. I can't find his mod because he removed it.

I can mod it myself if anyone explains what should be modded. Is it the graphics above the unit? Or is there some hidden option on Genie 3?

I've found this thread regarding the issue:

The idea is to take advantage of the damage graphics the game uses to put flames into buildings, adding some visual guide of the remaining health. It's not super hard to do but it would take time.

I think that we could even do the visual guide a line that overlaps with the actual health bar and add more divisions so it's more accurate. This way it wouldn't be that obstrussive.

May I ask if you can do it?
I would love playing with such a mod especially in RPG scenarios

Yes, I will look into it when we release the next update with the gurjaras. I find it challenging and interesting.

I hadn't forgotten about the idea:

I'm not sure wether to add the full health one as well. It's a bit more complicated to do and it may be too many bars all the time.
