  • CreateModifierThinker crashing game

    Any instance of CreateModifierThinker put inside the addon_game_mode file now crashes the game the moment it's called, regardless of what kind of function it is in. Abilities, spells and items that use CreateModifierThinker appear to work fine. Please fix, asap.

    I use a entity_killed listener to create a CreateModifierThinker that helps calculate the respawn point furthest from any enemy, and that is broken until such a time that the game doesn't instantly crash when the function is called by the listener.

    So through trial and error what I found is that you can no longer create a CreateModifierThinker function that has "nil" for the first two values. Doing so will crash the game immediately. This means that the function is less valuable as a dummy unit for general game functions that aren't tied to a particular hero. Still should be reverted in my opinion.
