well for the hero builder , im pretty sure about the problem. since heros cant build just change hero race to undead so the building will summon. the heeo just has to have model files changed and its stats back to what you wanted it. hope this helps

so i should give it builder undead and wont i haveto change what the buildings type are? or as long as its listed under what the unit builds it willwork? where i was going with this hero is alot like th peon in nexus arena, it is a hero and builds and learns to build towers as skills, but can change to a form that is a melee atacker with like crit.

to rephrase the buildings do start, they just dont complete.

if i remake the unit completely to be undead, will i use ahero or just a peasant and give it all hero stats, and either way will i have to redo the human tileset of buildings i made for it?

Give Repair-Human to the hero to make him able to finish the buildings he began constructing.
In order to make a building summonable you have to change the building and not the summoner. (By setting all buildings to undead)

You cannot give hero stats to regular units. To make a unit into a hero, edit a hero and change it's model file to the unit's.

You use Crow Form for Units.
You use Metamorphosis for Heroes.

I thought everyone knew that :).

You're more than welcome. Now go and vote for me it only takes 1 minute.

The description you gave us is not enough, so copy the builder hero and the building into an empty map and upload it here or on a filesharing site and link to it whichever you prefer.
You might want to experiment with all the different builds and repairs (orc human nelf undead) or just redo the tower basing it off an already working one.

action: replace hero with a new hero.
