I wanted to make a spell that allows a Zergling to spawn broodlings on itself.
I know how to make the zergling have a broodling button, but I don't know how to make the button have any effect. Can anyone help me?

You need to make it train the Broodling, which can be done via FireGraft. I don't know if you can have it spawn 2, try checking '2 from each egg' in DatEdit or whatever the box is under advanced.

That wouldn't kill the zling though, would it?

Yeah, I wanted it to kill the zergling, I tried to make a spell using spawn broodlings as the effect, but theres no target self flag, so that didn't really work >.<

The best approach would be to have it morph into Broodlings using the Unit Morph action (like the Larva) and check the "2 from each egg" box.

I believe (but I'm not sure) that these Broodlings will have the default (50) energy when they are created, so they'll have a relatively short lifespan. You could fix this with some plugin magic, or you could create another, similar unit to the Broodling that doesn't have the timed lifespan, depending on what your goal is.

Have you actually modded the button so that it actually does sth?



None.

I gave the morph button to the zergling. I changed the data requirements to match what I wanted.

I saw somewhere that it had to do with exe edits. What do I have to change?

You need to change both the Broodling's build requirements and the requirements for the Morph Unit action. There are also EXE edits called "Command Restriction - Check Unit Type" and "Order - all non morph units to use coccoons" - these need to be enabled.

It works now :D TY

Now that that's done can anyone tell me how to make the button appear when I have multiple zerglings selected?

Nevermind I figured it out.
Theres a Can Create unit requirement in exe edits that when enabled allows any unit to morph while multiple of them are selected
