    I think you need to mention units more.
    It is very important to know what type of attack and armor suits which unit.
    Like:
    -Melee unit:
    attack-normal ;armor-heavy
    -range unit:
    attack- piecing;armor-normal
    -spelcasting unit:
    attack-magic ;armor-light or none
    -air unit
    attack-piercing ;armor-light
    Note that air units also can have magic or normal melee attack.
    Also spellcasters should have healing and dispelling magic (not necessary for one to have both)

    EDIT:For victory condition you should make trigger that counts enemy buildings.Like if enemy has 0 buildings he is defeted.

    So if I make custom race, in the custom game I can choose race from five fields. It will be human, orc, undead. night elf and my custom race?

    You need triggers to do that and only in game you can chose custom race. Exception is if you make custom race in place of already existing race.

    You have to replace the Great Hall with your race's town hall name, and the Farms with your race's food producers' name, etc.
    For example
    |cffffcc00You will be revealed to your opponents unless you build a Temple of the Tides.|r
    Build more Coral Beds
    etc.

    I tried doing this and it failed miserably...when the game starts, it gives me a bunch of town halls and no workers... there are so many town halls it covers up the gold mine! I probably did something wrong since it's working for everyone else...but I'm not sure what I could have done. for the places where it says (picked unit) do I need to put something there? it's trying to make me choose a town hall/worker that is already on the map...

    EDIT: nvm..I think I fixed it. now it just gives me 6 workers...it's better than 28. i probably don't make that many in 1 game. lol

    Hello,

    Im kinda new to this all, but I´m trying to make a WC2 human and orc race, with all the troubles it entails.

    I tried making the trigger you provided, but i cant seem to find the fields to make this part of it: If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions).
    How do you set them?

    Could you, or anyone who knows this, help this noob out?

    Dude there is some things which may need changing but there are some easier ways and no the campaign units won't bug up i tested it once and you can edit the units, heros and buildings, instead of making custom units and edit them and make custom triggers its a lot simpler than doing most of this.
