We don't really have a exhaustive manual on that, the best is probably https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/wiki/Map-scripting and the links mentioned there. Looking at the existing missions is also a good starting point.

Thank you for the help!

Also, how to I make it to where buildings will spawn fire when they explode?

I don't think there is a really easy way to do this currently. The best is probably using SpawnActorOnDeath with dummy actors that look like flames.

I see, I had used SpawnActorOnDeath so that the buildings would spawn infantry when they explode and the vehicles also.

I have another question. The color picker in the lobby can store custom colors. Which Yaml is this info located in?

In your own settings.yaml within My Documents/OpenRA (varies on OS though, your home/OpenRA folder on Linux).
