Heya people, making a map in which I have triggers that are activated when units are killed. I need to make it so that allies can't kill eachother's units and exploit the triggers I've made.

I've seen it on a few maps where when you manually press 'a' and click on an ally's unit it won't allow you to attack it. Anyone know how it's done?

There are 2 ways...

1. Go through all effects and weapons that deal damage and make them exclude friendly units as a valid target.
2. Use a trigger that detects when a unit tries to attack a friendly unit and then orders the units to stop the attack order. You would still need to do 1 for all the effects.

A unit is attacked by an unit
condition: player(owner of attacking unit) equal to player(owner of attacked unit)
unit issue order - order attacking unit to stop.

Sorry for the bad layout, but you get the idea.
