So I have already made a random unit group with units I want to spawn. It works but the issue is that when I do

Unit - Create 2 WaveSpawns[(Random integer number between 1 and Random_Count)] for Player 12 (Brown) at Temp_Point facing (Position of (Triggering unit))

it selects 2 units randomly and summons them twice. So for example, if it picks a footman it will spawn 2 of them. So if I were to say spawn 8 units I would get 8 footmen if selected in the random group.

What I want to do is use Unit Create to create 2 random units literally, so 1 footman 1 grunt on to a position
So if I did create 8 units it would create 8 random ones. Right now I have to do this 3 times

Unit - Create 2 WaveSpawns[(Random integer number between 1 and Random_Count)] for Player 12 (Brown) at Temp_Point facing (Position of (Triggering unit))

Just to have random units spawn, I just want to know if there is a more effective way of doing it without having to do that 3 times.

That is 3 random unit pairs or 6 units in total. 3 x 2 = 6. You would need to repeat the action 4 times for 8 random unit pairs or 8 times for 8 random units.

Use a for integer loop to repeat a single copy of the action 8 times. That is what loops are for.

Hey I got a quick question, So this is my random group list. Every time the game makes a unit from the group it lags. Any way to reduce that lag?
