I made this because I noticed most people want to know a little about this, I made a short guide on all I know about this subject, just write back if there is something not working for you, hey this is the article I promised you ODA, hope it can help.
Helpful but not very well organized. (by the way do you know where the alpha channel is in photo shop?)

well in Rise of Nations the alpha is used for the placement of the team colors (if u see grey in the alpha) it shows up as varying shades of the team color over your skin. Black however makes those area completely transparent, so that if the entire alpha is black, you cant see the unit at all. or if you say cover the head of the unit's alpha in black, it would be missing its head.
