Newbie Wednesday- Ask Questions!

    #85 Dec 10, 2011 at 04:38 UTC - 0 likes

    Questions for next week's Newb Wednesday...

    Would you mind creating a christmas-e object in the editor at the either the end or beginning of the show?

    How would I make a trigger check that an upgrade has been well...upgraded?

    I want a large unit to make really loud booming sounds when he steps, for example the stone zealot. How would I do that?

    Is it possible to make tints also modify the unit's stats somehow? For example my unit has titn 0-0-0 and for ever +1 red I gain 5 max life, for every +1 green I want 1 additional damage and for every +1 bleu I want 5 extra max energy. Could this be possible and how?

    I want a unit to have multiple weapons that shoot at different targets at the same time in mutiple directions?

    How could I make all units in the game be able to cliff jump without looking int he data editor?

    @Taintedwisp: Go

    Good to know ;)

    @yukaboy: Go

    Will do something christmas-y for sure. Will show upgrade trigger as well, not sure if zealot stepping is possible though.... I want to do something kind of neat, instead of just Q/A for Christmas- normally I don't have the time to prepare anything "big" but with Christmas break upon us....

    Also, I'm almost done with my exams. I got a bit of free time tonight, so I redesigned the show logo. The old one was a bit too ugly. While this one's not exactly great, it's not as bad as the old one...Looks a bit more design-y ;) Anyways (finally) everything should be back to normal, with a show every Wednesday.

    If you guys have any ideas for this upcoming show, let's hear them. I'm hoping to do something special, instead of just Q/A. But I'm pretty much out of ideas O.o

    i think that's easy with the zealot stepping... all actors have default sounds for movement (not voice responses, but sounds like an engine rev'ing).

    all you have to do is apply that sound to the actor or movement animation (havent tried this but should work).

    in the case of the stone zealot, you could probably just pump the volume on his default movement sound. try that before anything else

    Well I'm sure you have already done this before, but could you show how to make a new building that can be built by all 3 races?

    also how do you remove the under decal? i have like a little brown looking thing under my trees thats from the minerals, How do i remove that?

    Also you could show how to add new sounds and a loading screen, that would allow you to do something Christmas like, :D you should start at the photoshop, and the audacity stages though.

    also how to add new textures, I cant seem to get it to work right, I get a BRIGHT white on one side.

    all of those ideas are brilliant.... and i'm having trouble with textures too

    the white could be a general specularity problem (reacts intensely with any small light source)

    Well putting everything I did together, I think you should make a Christmas Map, Snow texture, Christmas Loadin screen, Christmas Songs, Maybe make a small little cinematic for it, Could be cool, And could answer all the questions. Then Save the map and upload it on Sc2Mapster, and Then see what Others can come up with. :D

    My idea for a Unit is Kerriclaus, She rides on a zergling who has SPinecrawlers comeing out of his head, with some bags behind her :P

    How to use UI and how to mess with it.

    #97 Dec 21, 2011 at 03:27 UTC - 0 likes

    How do I use photoshop to get rid of the mustache on the baby? It would make the photo a million times better :D

    How about something having to deal with sound or music? Use custom sounds and what not for custom spells or something.

    I'd like to know how to make missiles fire from specific points of the attacking unit. IE making the missile turret fire missiles from the turrets mounted on each side, instead of from the middle of the turret.
