What is the easiest way to statis field a spider mine? I read somewhere once that it was possible to statis field a spider mine... So, what I would be trying to do is have a spider mine statis field decoration, and so behind the scenes I would need to have a computer arbiter statis fielding a spider mine, each time a new one has to replace the old one (before it wears out). So what I am specifically wondering is how to get a computer arbiter to cast statis field on an (attacking?) mine.

The arbiter will not target the mine directly, but it will target units that are attacking it directly, so you'd need to have the mine standing next to these units, and it'll be caught in the AoE of the stasis cast.

What is the best way to go about having the mine in an attacking position when it gets stasised?

Frankly I wouldn't bother as the effect you're after is not going to be 100% glitch-proof.

Probably the best way to do it would be to have mine owned by P1, with a marine owned by P1, have a crackling owned by P2 run past to activate the mine and create an arbiter owned by P2 with enough energy nearby so the P1 marine aims at it, causing it to stasis the group. Of course you're going to have to come up with some way to make the marine target the arbiter in preference to the crackling. There aren't any air-only ground units outside of the turrets though.

Alright thank you very much for the information, very helpful link.

You could have the spider mine trying to attack the marine, and a powerup or another unit between them so the spider mine gets stuck as it tries to move toward the marine. Then have the marine fire at the arbiter, and it will stasis both of them.

Might need to alter that setup depending on how many computer players you have to use, but considering a blocked off spider mine will still pop out and keep trying to attack a target even if it can't actually reach them, there shouldn't be any timing issues involved.

I found an easier solution and that is that once you create a spider mine it takes a while before it goes into the ground.
