Well, I ment to post this on http://www.maplantis.org but sence its offline or whatnot, here goes nothing.

I was wondering if it is possible to automaticly heal a unit, via triggers? Nothing to due with EUD would be nice. I was thinking of [I]Zerg Units
and how they heal by themselfs automaticly. I was thinking of something like a set Death Counter and add 1 to it every ~1 second, and then have another trigger with:
Actions:
Current Player Has Exactly 10 Deaths Of DC: Health

Conditions:
Set Current Player Hit Points Of Terran Marine To 10%

Good? Bad? More? Less?

Feed back please.

Doing something like that will only keep the Marine, in this case, only at 10% health. Sadly enough you can't give health nor take it away but I don't think that this approach is going to work for you

I was also thinking, what if the marine had more then 10% of its life? Then I would be setting it lower then to higher. How would I know its Hit Points? I dont want Virtual Hit Points Nor EUD's.

The fast answer is that you can't. You can make a unit's HP out of 100 and make their HP correspond to a number of deaths, but if you do this, you can only add or subtract HP with triggers. Your "real" HP would become a variable stored as deaths, rather than your actual HP.

Seems like virtual HP would be the way to go, that is if you don't have a ton of people to have the virtual health for because having too many will make you have a lot more triggers than what you would rather have...

We can't explain the universe, just describe it; and we don't know whether our theories are true, we just know they're not wrong. >Harald Lesch

ADDING HP with triggers is not possible.

However you can heal / repair / recharge shields of the unit.
Healing isn't even that difficult. Just periodically create a allied medic near your unit and remove it after a short time.
A scv and shield battery however would need the player to do it manually.

you do now. But back when everyone was using it we had severe performance problems. I'm sure they'd return if people moved back.
