Well In My Map The Unit Needs to see the whole map. so i was thinking of one of these too. Use some sort of trigger to extend its range behyond the 1800 (2400?) sight range limit OR as a different approach use a trigger to make a Unit Cast Far Sight at a random position.

Or Maybe theres a spell that does that. If So Is it Trigger based?

You can create "Visibility Modifiers" for certain players, or you can just do something like this (which requires jass, though)

JASS:
if GetLocalPlayer() == <some player> then
    call FogEnable(false)
    call FogMaskEnable(false)
endif

[jass=For example, with allies of Player 1 (Red)]if IsPlayerAlly(GetLocalPlayer(),Player(0)) then
call FogEnable(false)
call FogMaskEnable(false)
endif[/code]

You can use filters. I don't think its possible to make them for one player through GUI though, but, im kinda a noob with filters.

The only reason you'd use filters if you'd want to blind the player. (Like covering there screen with black or something) He wants to blind a unit.

Yeah, bomber said it. I want to blind the unit, not the player.
I don't know any ability changing sight range. Also I got problems everytime I want a unit to cast a spell via triggers because there are just these default abilities given.
