Triggers, which we can set in map editor allows us to move, "teleport" units from one location to another. However just shifting unit's position results a bug. Unit stucks and becomes unselectable. Using teleport order does nothing exept unit stucks. Possable there are way to hack game memory to call function which moves units from location to location, but I wonder how to do it. May be there are connection between unit's position, and other unit's data. If so, should be way to understand what this data is.

Of course, I can do different other things in my mod, for example: resource trading, new spell, sniper shoot and plasma blast for AI, fix minor bugs for carrier and reaver, but... unpleasant, that I stuck on almost simple thing.

Also good idea - find way to implement BWL plugin in firegraft. I mean forcehamachi plugin. It should be used in gravity mod, due not all players can easily play trough iccup.
