    Alright well i am working on a new map, i wanted to use different units as workers such as the villager male unit.
    ive tried a few different ways of creating it, i made it a completely new custom unit, i also tried to copy/paste the peasant and peons and then just changed the model for each of them. all other sounds as far as attacking and chopping wood work but i cant seem to get the repair(human) or repair ability sounds to work when trying with the villager as the worker.
    im not using any custom buildings yet, just the basic human builds mainly the farm just for quick testing. in the same map i can have a regular peasant build/repair and that makes the 'hammering' sound like normal but as soon as i try it with the custom villager worker theres no sound.
    i also tried using the peasant sound set for it and the villager sound set, neither of which make that sound.
    i know its a simple thing but its really annoying when you notice it lol
    is it the actual model the sound is attached to? i see the sounds in the sound editor under abilities so i thought it was attached to the ability but doesnt seem to work at all.

    thanks in advance! xD

    I do not know the answer for sure, but it sounds plausible, that the sound is actually attached to the animation of the peasant. That is possible and it would explain the situation you are describing. Either way, giving your cutom model an animation for the repair and attaching a sound to it will solve your problem.
