Ok this is probaly very easy to do, but how do you make a structure cast an abilty it has.

Well it is, simply search for the item ability "Create small Townhall" which you can purchase as human in wc3. Then change the buildings in the list to 4x the building you want.

Make a dummy unit to cast it when you click the ability's button. There are tutorials about dummy units on this forum. It will tell you what dummy units are, what they do and how to make them.

I am making a preschool/micro tournament map and I want it to be automaticly sent by an abilty. For varying reasons including not being able to upgrade without pressing escape 7 times. I just want a way to make it use the abilty as soon as the cooldown is gone. Sorry I didnt put this in the first post!

Oh, misunderstood. Use channel and then always use the same orderid for your spells and simply order the building the according order when you need to.

Umm, I don't understand. Sorry. Im not very good at triggers. Could you show me an example please?

lets say the ability has a cooldown of 15 seconds. then make a trigger with the event u need to start off and then let the trigger run: cast ability, pause of 15.5 (to avoid problems) and then run the trigger again.

I don't know how to make it cast an abilty in actions. I can't find anything like it.

To make a spell trigger, you need to make a complete trigger
A unit starts casting an ability
Ability being cast is equal to <YOUR ABILITY>
Whatever you want it to do

Is there an action to force a unit to cast an ability?

your conditions if you need some
Unit - Order (*your unit*) to *the ability*
-------- careful with your spell whether its a target spell, no target spell etc. --------
Wait 15.50 seconds
Trigger - Run (This trigger) (checking conditions)
here is an example

I can't find an action which is anything like that.

It's under 'Unit - Issue order targetting ...'
If it's an ability that's targetted to a point, choose 'Issue order targetting a point'. If it's on a unit, choose 'Issue order targetting a unit'.
