[SOLVED] Behavior attaching animation

I want any unit having a specific behavior to have a certain model (animation or whatever) attached somewhere specific.
The last time I did that, I had to create 2 individual events for every single unit's actor and it took years. I'm sure there is a faster way.

And while we're at it, that last time I did that, I attached the thing overhead, but the place I'd really want it to be attached to would be the butt (it's flames animation, representing a speed boost, hehe). What is the name of that attachment point? And is there a way to make it face the opposite way of the facing direction of the unit (or it's done automatically?).

I'm pretty sure there is a way to do that. Anyone mind sharing the knowledge?

Check the Fungal Growth's actors until you find the one that attaches the model to affected units, then check the events and just copy that.
On the same actor you can see Host Operations (or a field called something like that) which defines where it's attached.

Chances are most units don't have a butt attachment point, so just attach it to the center like Fungal Growth, if the unit moves fast enough it will still leave a visible trail.

Solved.

Created a BuffContinuous type of Actor linked to a PersistentSpellFX type of (Generic) Model (in which you select your Model, and set the Auto Scale value if you need one).
Set up your Behvaior-related Events in the BuffContinuous (Beh.x.On->Create, Beh.x.Off->Destroy).
Actor: Host Site Operations: SOpAttachOverhead, Host: _Selectable.

Pretty straightforward. :)

Oh_Man -- with EUD u can just delete the SCV repair ability

da real donwano -- I realize I contradicted myself there. Quit making maps after 9ine failed, officially retired during EUD's.

da real donwano -- Very quickly, however, the map was deemed a failure due to people exploiting the SCV repair ability & I just quit making maps after that.

da real donwano -- It was a huge success overnight. 10's of people played it multiple (2) times.

da real donwano -- "9ine" ... It was a FFA style map on classic BGH. The goal was to be the first one to accumulate EXACTLY 9 minerals.
