I want to add a few heroes (and perhaps customize my own) to the Taverns in all of my Custom Game maps. How do I manage this? Someone mentioned looking this up in the FAQs... but I haven't found anything resembling an answer yet. :/ Brew

Use the object editor to make your own heroes. You can also add heroes to a tavern by going to object editor and setting what heroes it sells. Do you notice the circles of power in DotA? I think those are to solve a problem with tavern hero select system. Buying a hero requires a valid patron to be near, but since you dont have a hero you cant do it. Luckily circles of power count as a valid patron, so place one next to your tavern (remember to make sure it belongs to the played buying the hero.

Ahh, thanks for the info (runs off to try it). Unfortunately my Craptop failed to DL DotA, I'll try again later...

If your map is just a melee map, I don't think you should place circles of power at it...

Oh, and you can just replace the 'select hero' ability of a tavern by the 'select unit' ability... Think that should work too.

If I have the choice between making balanced heroes and triggering work, I'd rather do triggering...

Um, I guess Melee maps... standard multiplayer, nothing fancy. :D
