Hmm, maybe you modify the true sight instead of removing it. If there's no other invisible units that would work.

Unit - Hide

Why not just use that? Unless the player needs to see the unit, then probably not possible.

i tried giving a unit ghost ability, but when i make it to 100% transparent, when the unit is detected by true sight or any wards that detect invisible units, it will still be visible instead of fully transparent, any idea why? :confused:

yes because the true sight make units visible to the player, it mean this:

Unit as 50% transparency for owner player
Unit as 0% transparency for enemy
Unit as 50% transparency when is detected

so it won't work, also if u press ALT u will see a life bar up the unit.

The best thing to do may be invulnerable and permanent invisibility

What does the Unit in you map? Is it a dummy Unit?

You could use no model and give it locust ability (can't select or see it). But you can't "control" it after it has locust...

So an Option would be Create, Order, add locust.... But it depends on what that Unit is used for :/
