Mobile Grids that detects N, E, S, W

Hi all, and thanks for helping!

I am trying to create a 1x1 mobile grid which centers a 3x3 grid, and then four 1x1 locations, labeled N, E, S, W, to be centered 1x location respectively for their directions. This is so that I can detect whether a building is to the North/East/South/West of a unit.

Right now, here is my code

The Grid
Players

  • Player 8
  • Conditions

  • Switch("Switch3", set);
  • Actions

  • Comment("The Grid");
  • Preserve Trigger();
  • Set Switch("Switch3", clear);
  • Remove Unit At Location("Player 8", "Zerg Scourge", All, "Grid");
  • Create Unit("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", 1, "Grid");
  • Create Unit("Player 11", "Protoss Observer", 1, "Grid");
  • Create Unit("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", 1, "Grid");
  • Create Unit("Player 11", "Protoss Observer", 1, "Grid");
  • Create Unit("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", 1, "Grid");
  • Create Unit("Player 11", "Protoss Observer", 1, "Grid");
  • Create Unit("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", 1, "Grid");
  • Create Unit("Player 11", "Protoss Observer", 1, "Grid");
  • Create Unit("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", 1, "Grid");
  • Move Location("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", "Grid", "W");
  • Remove Unit At Location("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", 1, "Grid");
  • Remove Unit At Location("Player 11", "Protoss Observer", 2, "Grid");
  • Move Location("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", "Grid", "N");
  • Remove Unit At Location("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", 1, "Grid");
  • Move Location("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", "Grid", "S");
  • Remove Unit At Location("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", 2, "Grid");
  • Move Location("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", "Grid", "E");
  • Remove Unit At Location("Player 11", "Zerg Scourge", 1, "Grid");
  • Remove Unit At Location("Player 11", "Protoss Observer", 2, "Grid");


  • I have a set of triggers that creates and kills probes at the N, E, S, W locations, but when I activate the switch, the probes are not exploding at a nice North East South West pattern. They seem to be bunched up, meaning the locations are not centered on the right units.

    Can anyone help? I am unfamiliar with mobile grids in which the grid, and the directions within it must never fail.

    Thanks

    Maybe remove is removing the units in with an incorrect "prioritization" or whatever?

    Try setting up the N E S W locations as you are first creating the Scourges and Observers, maybe that would get it to work.

    Edit: Oh wait, one thing about mobile grids that I just remembered:

    I thought you always create the last unit for a different player (e.g. Player 12) and then move locations onto that player's unit.

    Then at the end you remove units for both players (P11 and P12).

    Also, maybe I'm crazy, but can you create units for Neutral Players directly?
