I'm building a new ability with and AOE and I'd like to show the area of effect using a cursor. I set the ability's "Cursor effect" to my search area.
When I do this by creating a new ability from scratch, no cursor is shown. I followed tutorials and created a "splat" actor (child of cursor splat) that will show only when my ability is on 'cursor'. But the cursor doesn't scale with the search area radius (what is said in wiki http://www.sc2mapster.com/wiki/galaxy/data/actors/type/splat/ seems wrong). When I change the model's maximum scale, the area shown is always the maximum scale (and not the area radius)
When I do this by copying a spell, my cursor takes the model of my race, and I don't want that (I want the same cursor whatever the race). I tried to understand how the cursors are working in your war3 mod but its still obscure to me. What part links for instance the Archmage's Blizzard ability to the actor named "War3_AbilCursor" ? How does this one scale correctly? (I saw its type is Model and not Splat).
