Hi everyone. I'm a complete noob to the SC2 map editor. I'm trying to create a relatively simple map that's reminiscent of the Atari, Tanks game. I've managed to create my stealth tanks but I'm having trouble setting the victory/defeat conditions for the map. All I'm trying to go for at this time is about ten tanks blasting each other to hell and gone with the last tank left alive being the winner. I've tried to weed through videos and forums for about a month now and I can't find anything even remotely like what I need. Everyone seems to be doing a tower defense or RPG style game and I'm just looking to do a simple blast'n'smash free-for-all. Could someone just point me in the direction of a forum post or series of instructions on how to make that specific trigger. I'm trying to create this map for a friend's Bachelor Party as just something fun to kill time with. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance!
Welcome to sc2mapster.
If all your finding is tower defense tutorials or stuff then your going in the wrong direction; you need to be looking into the basics of trigger like loops, if thens, arrays, etc. You won't find a tutorial for what your looking since victory conditions are always specific to each map and requires you to understand basic triggering concept; however, what your looking to use is just a trigger with a unit dies event and then you can do something like loop through each player and count if the tank is left or not, save the tank to a variable and when 1 is only left end the game for the player of the saved tank.
Are you aware that there's already a very well done and polish version of what your making that was just featured by blizzard?
When I want your opinion...I'll give it to you!
What's up with the whole "Are you aware that there's already a..." Comment who cares if there is something similar out he wants to make it, by that logic no more shooters or rpg's should be made because it's been done.
I'd be more than happy to give you a demo map with 1 to 10 player's each with one unit, and the winner is the last Player with there unit still alive. If that's what you're looking for PM me or post in this thread if that's what you need.
Blizzard Fan since Starcraft. The Single Player story is AMAZING IMO, I can't wait for the Expansions. In Warcraft 3 I only enjoy the Custom Maps scene (& Blizzards Worm Wars).
@DaFunk86: That's awesome! I would appreciate that very much! Like I said, I'm new here and just now learning the ropes. Played a lot of Starcraft but never really messed with the editor until recently. Just looking to make something basic for now. Really, I'd just like to learn how to do simple triggers like that and build up from there. As I learn and go forth I can work on making something different later. Thank you again!
@hobbidude: Are you aware that the thread title is Noob Seeking Direction? I'm just learning how to tool around the Galaxy editor and I'm seeking advice since my Google searches in various permutations have turned up jack squat. The fact that I managed to create a Siege Tank with the Banshee Cloak and Orbital Scan is something of a miracle to me. I came here because the Youtube Videos I was watching recommended this place because not only is it a great resource, but the people are also helpful. So, any insights you can offer, hyperlinks you can point me to or reading material and videos you can suggest would be keenly appreciated. Otherwise, I don't really need to be reminded about how much I don't know. But I thank you for your tips. When they make sense I will more than likely come back and reference them.
