# Cannot create a neutral unit with a trigger

I've been playing around with the starcraft UMS (Use map settings) for a while and usually i figure things out pretty quickly when im stuck. Alas not this time.

I'm trying to place a neutral unit (player 12) using a trigger. It refuses to work. I'm using Scmdraft 2.0 as my editor (but i cant get it to work in other editors either) (all neutral units placed before the game starts are visible and all other triggers work fine. Also i created a text msg and it does displays it in-game so the trigger triggers )

For testing I created a trigger that looks like this:

Player: neutral (i tried neutral players player 1 and all players as well)
Condition:
-always
Action:
-Create *1 Terran Medic* at '*location 022*' for *Neutral* (also tried neutral players)


When I start the game nothing happens.

Here is what I tried:

1. I tried placing a start location for neutral player (player 12)
2. I tried changing the owner under map properties of player 12 to neutral and computer from unused which was the default.

Although it seems like it should be a common enough problem, I don't see it in any FAQ and I cant find anything about it when I Google it.

• Pretty sure this falls in the Game Mod and Development catergory. Definitely try GameDev.SE. – deutschZuid Dec 17 '12 at 1:02
• I managed to make my trigger work by turning player number 7 to a rescuable player. I wish i could keep player number seven as a human player. and rescuable is not really an neutral player either :/ – Xitcod13 Dec 22 '12 at 2:04
