Sharing vision with extended player

The Curious


I've been wondering if sharing vision with a player in the P9...P11 range would work if I write an AI Script that tells the player to share vision with - say - P10? I've read that these players have no vision of their own units but I wanted to be sure this is not going to work before doing what I need another way.

P.S. I know that precious few scripts work when run for a human player. I'd have that accounted for.

I don't think this will work. The data structures for unit vision only have 8 entries (for the 8 "real" players).

Thanks Voyager. I'll do it some other way then.

Oh I wish you figured something out, since I am having the same problem and I can't figure out a solution.

Even with allied detectors I can't see the units the arbiter cloaks.

(Sorry for basically taking over the thread with my issue, I just thought it was odd that seconds after I posted mine, I found this topic)
