SetTeamAllies is used to ally one team to another.
The SetTeamAllies function only works within a .lua files startup() section. This startup() function can be added to any .lua file but there should be only one within a .lua file.
Example .LUA startup() function
function startup() SetTeamAllies( BLUE_TEAM, 16 ); SetTeamAllies( YELLOW_TEAM, 4 ); end
Now, the first parameter in SetTeamAllies is the team that's going to be given an ally. The second command is (for now) a bit field of the team who is going to be the ally.
Setting blue team to have an ally of yellow team
SetTeamAllies( BLUE_TEAM, 16 );
This tells BLUE TEAM to have an ally of YELLOW TEAM.
Setting yellow team to have an ally of blue team
SetTeamAllies( YELLOW_TEAM, 4 );
Similarly, this tells YELLOW TEAM to have an ally of BLUE TEAM.
