    question one: you use regions just make a region were you want the unit to go and order unit to move there(in the triggers)

    Question two: Yes dalaran tileset has that, go to the advanced catagory and choose advanced tile set, and change it to Dalaran or Dalaran Ruins

    Question three: uhh, in the tile deal you choose shallow water and create a ramp also in the tile part if that is what you ment??

    Question 4: very easy just use special triggers, ok download one of the weapon attachments on this site, and go into triggers:

    Events:
    Unit aquires an item

    Conditions:
    item equal to(item you want to creat special trigger)
    Unit has item equal to (same item) equal to false

    Actions:
    Special effect creat (attachment Model) to trigering unit at ( Overhead, chest, hand_left, hand_right(use this))

    use hand_right for weapons, chest for wings

    :lol: Thank's for the answer in question no 4 but i have tried the region strategy for question no 1 and it doesn't work for some crazy reason!
    :roll: By question three i kind of morement when the water sits kind of flat on the ground like a rain puddle on the ground? if that makes any scence what so ever?! :(

    And just one extra question... if yu can handle my stupidity for just one moment... I have downloaded a few unit models and when I put them into my map is says "couldnot find file (unit im trying to insert) .mdl!
    is there a way to fix this or does no-one submit(.mdl-s?

    Thanks anyway :D

    ok i will make this as simple as i can:

    dont know the puddle deal ask someone else

    the model thing is simple:
    when you download a model you should have a model and some skins. go to the page were you found the model you want, and down a little below(before the comments) you should see a thng that says Textures:
    under that is a list of the textures that came with the file besides the mdx file, the ones in green is what you change the path to, you import them to WE and rename the paths.

    EXAMPLE:

    Model: Sephiroth
    Files: Sephiroth.mdx
    Sephiroth.blp
    FX.blp

    on the model page it will have:
    Textures: sephiroth.bp
    Fx.blp
    (THESE ARE WHAT YOU CHANGE THE PATHS TOO)

    ok load those files into WE, when your on the IMPORT MANAGER you should see somthing like this:

    Sephiorth.mdx war3Imported\sephiroth.mdx
    Sephiroth.blp war3Imported\sephiroth.blp
    FX.blp war3Imported\FX.blp

    ok double click on Sephiroth.BLP and choose CUSTOM PATH(check the box) and change it to what the texture file says AKA: sephiroth.blp

    Do the same thing with FX.BLP then go to object editor and change the model thing to SEPHIROTH.MDL
    place the unit on the map, save it, close WE and reopen it, then load ur map and it should work hope this helps

    For the puddle-thingy, do that:

    create an area of water (not deep water)
    then just raise the land everywhere (with the hill-thingy under the tiles)
    where you want to have the puddle, u just lower terrain so whater shows up again.
    Is that what you meant?
    (sorry, but I canÄt explain that so good, i hope it helps)

    MfG JunJee
