How to share vision with Neutral Player Slot

    In my map I'm using the Neutral Extra and Neutral Victim to control attacking creeps (it's a hero survival), and there are some waves with invisible creeps. The problem is that Neutral Player slots can't share vision with other players.

    Is there a way to work around that and make players allied to the Neutral Extra be able to see their units?

    Thanks in advance.

    No, you can't. Especially when "Neutral Extra" does not present as a player or computer (like Neutral Hostile) into the map.

    i think you can if you share units with him

    u can add ward classification if you don't want a player to control the natural units,or

    you can also do this
    add a dummy spell book to each natural unit
    add rally for each dummy unit (no control 100% than)

    than make spell book key - X
    every 0.02 sec of game
    if unit owned by natural player is selected by triggering player
    -force triggering player to press a key -X

    anyway it would be better if you add a ward classification

    I'm pretty sure that doesn't work, as it says in the text of that function that Neutral Players can never share vision (I think?).

    Sorry, but it didn't work.

    Also, I don't see how your map proves that it work. The units you placed on the map are not invisible.

    I clearly stated that I wanted to see invisible units controlled by a Neutral Player, which is my ally.

    Neutral units are always visible for everyone, that would be no point otherwise.

    Oh with "invisible" you meant the units have the skill to be invisible.
    I thought you wanted them to be invisible so that you CAN'T see them. My bad.
    I added the Permanent Invisibility skill to the units and i could still see them.
    Even those I have as enemys.

    Oh, you're totally right. When I tested it out, I made the human player treat the computer as allied with shared vision.

    Thanks for your help.

    SOLVED.
