The first idea that popped into mind was giving it the locust ability. But then you cant control it either.

If its only ONE unit or ONE type of unit in you map you can trigger it without any trouble.

Event: Player X selects a unit
Conditions: Unit/unit type equal to "your unit"
Action: Remove unit from selection from player X

You could de-select the unit whenever it gets selected.
Trigger:
  • Deselection
    • Events
      • Player - Player 1 (Red) Selects a unit
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set TempUnitGroup = (Units currently selected by (Triggering player))
      • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
        • If - Conditions
          • (Number of units in TempUnitGroup) Greater than 1
          • (YourUnit is selected by (Triggering player)) Equal to True
        • Then - Actions
          • Selection - Remove YourUnit from selection for (Triggering player)
        • Else - Actions
      • Custom script: call DestroyGroup (udg_TempUnitGroup)

So, basically you're asking for the unit to actually behave as though it's a ward class unit, but still have the move/attack/stand/hold position/patrol and skill buttons available? There isn't really a good solution for that. To have it actually behave as though it has ward-type selection, you would have to factor in three problematic cases.

The first problem would be if you select multiple units of that unit-type, but no units of any other unit-type. You would want to be able to select multiple units of your unit-type, even by box-selecting, if there are no other units to select.

The second problem would be if you box-select (by clicking and dragging) at least one unit of your designated unit-type, and more than twelve units of any other unit-type. You would want the selected group to be a full group of twelve units, which means you would not only have to remove at least one unit from the group, but replace it with another one that fits the criteria of both having been within the selection box and being of a different unit-type

The third would be how to differentiate between box-selecting and shift-clicking each unit to add to the group (or shift-doubleclicking to add multiple units of that type). You still want to be able to add units of that unit-type to the group if you're shift-clicking, as long as the group isn't full.

The most feasible solution I could think of, rather than trying to trigger it, would be to change the "Stats - Is a building" to true. Selection for buildings behaves rather similarly to selection for wards. Unfortunately, that produces other undesirable behavior, such as your new building-units waking up sleeping creeps, having a larger aggro radius, and having strange-looking shadows.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
