Make Unit go trough everything except Doodads


New Member

ive now had this running for a long time in the normal helper section, and we have absolutly found out of nothing :D

I need my peasant to be able to go trough every building, but not Doodads..

Things that dont work:
Flying aint an option
Aura´s on towers turning collision off for nearby units
Collision changes
No Pathing map

We have tried a lot and no solution..

So, can someone please help me and tell me if this is possible in JASS?
Make the unit go trough buildings but not doodads/destructibles?

Well, everything except doodads is just buildings isn't it?

Maybe you could give all buildings a collision size of 0?

Will take long time to go trough it all again so if you wish you can read the thread heh:

I would say make the peasant fly again, but then you'd shut it down as something that doesn't work.

Instead, here's a map featuring:
  • Footmen blocked by both buildings and doodads
  • Peasants blocked only by doodads

Edit: Additionally, if you want doodads/buildings that only footmen can go through, use the pathing color Cyan.

Here's a link you might be interested in: Pathing Map Types

No problem :)

Another solution you might be interested in that requires triggering, is one that uses the function SetTerrainPathable(x, y, pathingType, flag)

pathingType can be
flag is true or false, to enable or disable the pathingType.

It would require some kind of system on your part to set the right pathing in the right places, but once it's made you can have a map without flying peasants.

Let's assume you don't use water in your map. Then you can set your peasants pathing type to amphibious, and enable PATHING_TYPE_AMPHIBIOUSPATHING wherever necessary. This won't enable PATHING_TYPE_WALKABILITY, so only the peasants will be able to pass.

Note: if I remember correctly, SetTerrainPathable() changes an area of 32x32
