The CaptureNearestNext command order an army to capture the nearest neutral or enemy-controlled region after executing whatever orders it already has. See also: CaptureNearest


  • Name - The name of the unit to do the capturing
  • Repeat - Whether to repeat the order (indefinitely)


  • Can only order script-spawned units, not units built 'organically' during gameplay
  • Will send the army at the nearest unowned Relay or Generator to their current position. If you want to send them somewhere specific, use AttackAttackMove or MoveUnit instead.

This spawns an army and moves it to one side of a central plateau before telling it to CaptureNearestNext. This (almost 100%, it can get weird in certain unusual gamestates) ensures that it attacks one side of the map while the units created by similar but mirrored EnemyWave01 trigger attack the other side.
