Bribe: Highly recommended as a system to handle your lightning needs. It can handle as many lightnings as you want without lagging.

Create lightnings from

*point to point

*point to unit

*unit to point

*unit to unit

Supports moving points/units.

JASS:

```
/******************************************************************************
*
* TIMED LIGHTNINGS by Maker v1.0.1.1
*
* Allows the creation of lightnings with expiration timer.
* Supports:
* o Fading lightnings in and out
* o Attaching to units
* o Attaching to points
* o Linear movement in x-, y- and z-axes
*
*
* Methods
*
* P2U
* From a static point attached to a unit
* static method P2U takes lightning l, unit t, real time, real x1, real y1, real z1, real z2, real startAlpha, real endAlpha returns nothing
*
* The lightning, target unit, duration, origin x, origin y, origin z, end z
*
*
* P2UEx
* From a moving point attached to a unit
* static method P2UEx takes lightning l, unit a, real t, real zu, real x1, real y1, real z1, real x2, real y2, real z2, real startAlpha, real endAlpha returns nothing
*
* The lightning, target unit, duration, target z, origin start x, origin start y, origin start z, origin end x, origin end y, origin end z
*
* U2P
* From attached to a unit to a static point
* static method U2P takes lightning l, unit s, real t, real x1, real y1, real x2, real y2, real z1, real z2, real startAlpha, real endAlpha returns nothing
*
* The lightning, source unit, duration, origin x, origin y, point x , point y, source z, point z
*
* U2PEx
* From attached to a unit to a moving point
* static method U2PEx takes lightning l, unit a, real t, real zu, real x1, real y1, real z1, real x2, real y2, real z2, real startAlpha, real endAlpha returns nothing
*
* The lightning, source unit, duration, source z, point start x, point start y, point start z, point end x, point end y, point end z
*
* U2U
* From attached to a unit to attached to a unit
* static method U2U takes lightning l, unit s, unit t, real time, real z1, real z2, real startAlpha, real endAlpha returns nothing
*
* The lightning, source unit, target unit, duration, source z, target z
*
* P2P
* From a static point to a static point
* static method P2P takes lightning l, real t, real startAlpha, real endAlpha returns nothing
*
* The lightning, duration
*
* P2PEx
* From a moving point to a moving point
* static method P2PEx takes lightning l, real t, real x1, real y1, real z1, real x2, real y2, real z2, real x3, real y3, real z3, real x4, real y4, real z4, real startAlpha, real endAlpha returns nothing
*
* The lightning, duration, origin start x, origin start y, origin start z, origin end x, origin end y, origin end z, target start x, target start y, target start z, target end x, target end y, target end z
*
*
* Alpha values are between 1 and 0. 1 is fully visible, 0 is transparent.

v1.0.0.0 uploded 10.10.11

v1.0.1.0 uploaded 10.10.11

-Combined structs

-Now runs on one timer

-Factors in flying height

v1.0.1.1

-Now uses Nestharus' instance recycling
