Step 1
Insert Trigger: Active, Normal

Step 2
Condition: Always

Step 3
Effects
Type: Invoke God Power
Player: 0 (At the very bottom of pull menu)
Power: Healing Spring
Set Area (Click on button first then use left mouse button to select area. You can press Show Area to double check where you have put it)
Disregard other buttons

Step 4 (Very Important)
Go in to the Object Editor
Place As: Gaia
For the Healing Spring to appear there must be Gaia Objects within Line of Sight (LOS) of where you want the Healing Spring.
The easiest thing to do is place a few animals (Three or more works best) around where the spring will appear making sure not to overlap (You will probably have to go back and forth between the Trigger and Object Editors).
The final result will be a bunch of Gaia Objects in a circle around nothing.

Step 5
When Play Testing the map, you know you have done it right when the message - Mother Nature has invoked the Healing Spring power. - pops up on the screen.

This works for me let me know if it works for you.

Step 1
Pour water into glass (not doing this may cause it not to work)

Step 2 (Very Important)
Drink the water

I'm not saying this is the only way to do it, it is just the way I do it. I have found it very effective. It took me quite a bit of playtesting to get this worked out.

Not everyone knows how to do this. I’ve just started creating maps and there is no How to Booklet. Also what information is out there is jumbled. If you do a search for “Healing Spring” in this forum, you will understand. My post was for others that are learning. Everyone starts out as a novice. I was just trying to help. If you do know (not guess) of how to make a working Healing Spring in fewer steps, I would love to know how step by step and I’m sure all the others in the world that don’t know how and are looking would too.

Can't you just place it from the "place objects" box?

I’ve read all the beginner’s guides and again they don’t have a good solution for getting Healing Springs to work every time the game starts without having to waste time figuring out why it’s not healing units or hasn’t appeared where you invoked it. You can give advice and say see this or you could actually step by step explain how you did it after you figured it out for others. I’m sure there would be fewer questions on certain subjects if the answers were explained less vaguely.
This is what I had to work from:

After the advice that was given to him/her, s/he was left even more confused.

You can say the same for the lure god power, the tartarian gate, and sentinels if you count the fact that the pilnth they stand on won't go away if you place it in the editor when they die.

This is common knowlage for most of us here, it won't help must newcomers becuase most newcomers don't look at guides or stickies unfortunately.

And instead of placing Gaia animals, why not place a revealer? They are those white boxes that you place down that give LOS on a certian area, they are invisible in-game.

I did search the forum for a solution after looking through all the beginner material Google could find. All I found was for a Healing Spring to work you needed to invoke it. I invoked in every possible combination to no avail…

I did think about using a revealer but I wanted the spring to remain unseen by all players thus my initial frustration of it not appearing were I wanted it.

But that’s a great suggestion.

There are revealers for players only, which you can use.

No, you have to place it by triggers, or god powers or it won't work, it just sits there if placed by just going into objects and placing it.

You could use "revealer to player"s to make LOS for only one player.

Thanks for your help. The “Revealer to Player” did the trick.

Revised Step 4

Go in to the Object Editor
Place As: Gaia
Find “Revealer to Player” and place it where you want to invoke the spring.

Simple and Sweet.

Rock on Ockham!
