    I need to make some type of units imune to Trueshot Aura. The units are meele, but the have attack type = missile, beacause they throw fire missile for very short distances.

    Or how to make unit to fire missiles, when attack type = normal?

    the easy way around this would be to make them lets say, Mechanical and edit true-shots aura's targets to disclude mechanical creatures

    The missile projectile doesn't appear when set to normal. As for the make unit immune, you can do the following thing:
    - go to your Trueshot aura and go to "targets allowed", mark a thing like non-ancient and go to your unit and go to unit classification, mark ancient. So it you say: the aura effects range units but it can't effect ancients.

    You can change the Trueshot ability so it effects melee units only, range units only or effects range and melee units (like command aura).

    You can use dummy units to make melee units fire missiles or edit the models to add missile animaties to the attack animation, but that's alot more difficult. If you want to go for the dummy units search in google for tutorials.

    Hope I helped.

    Better to just give the unit a classification and make sure trueshot aura does not affect that classification type.

    Just make the unit a Ward or an Ancient or something targetable and disallow the Trueshot Aura to be effective on Wards/Ancients.
