@spy46: Go Yes, using a "no" makes your "count upgrade" do the opposite check. The logic behind it is simple, in the "show" area you included a "count upgrade" check, so you're telling the game to only show your button if the upgrade has been started, so it won't show the upgrade and you won't be able to start it.
But if you create a "no" and include a "count upgrade" in it, you're telling the game to only show the button when there's no upgrade of that type going on, and that's what you want.
It is all under the Requirement - Node Link field. The Not logic function does matter as it changes the logic of the requirement from you needing to have the upgrade queued or better to see the button as to opposed to it being hidden when the upgrade is queued or better. The Not node can be selected in the Type field, you can add more nodes by rightclicking a node and then selecting the Add Requirement Node option.
You are after adding the Not node to both use and show. Also make sure the count upgrade nodes have Queued or Better in the State field.
Sometimes it is better to start again using the new knowldege you have aquired. Try deleting the upgrade/requirement and starting again. I took three month long attempts to discover a method of animating inanimate models.
and the requirement i want is (Fire Suppression System - Upgrade ) correct? because i also see ones listed as reasearched and not reasearched.
because IT FREAKING WORKS
man i cant believe how much BS it was just to do this one thing, thank you so much for being paitent with me and every thing, you have no idea how hard it is to get some one that will actually sit there probably rolling their eyes every 5 min having to explain some thing for the millionth time.
one question, is there a way i can copy every thing ive edited on this map and transfer it over to another custom map or does that have to be a mod file or some thing?
As a mod or XML copy paste. Though it would be simpler just to make the upgrade in the other map.
At your stage in map making I would try to improve my skills in the data editor. I put my map on hiatus when I found how little I actually knew about the editor. I would advise just looking at what other pros like kueken531, borgdragon, stragus mapster or myself have done. There is also the newbiew wednesday broadcast which might be useful for your condition on the streaming.
