SLIC-Reference : : AddEffect  

Arguments: location, namestr, soundid Type: void

Add a special effect at location to the animation queue. namestr is the name from speceffid.txt (E.G. "SPECEFFECT_NUKE"), soundid is the ID from sounds.txt (E.G. "SOUND_D_DEFAULTDEATH").

Example:
AddEffect(unit.1.pos, "SPECEFFECT_NANO", "SOUND_ID_NANO_TERROR");

//Note that if the location is not visible to the onscreen player, this special
//effect won't be seen. Use AddCenter(loc) first to center on the location.
