    well that's the problem, multiple units in the map would all have that ability, and many of them multiple per player. If it just registered the buff, it would hit the targets other players mark as well, making your own marking counter-productive. I ended up making all the abilities work through weapons, and just have the "target unit" the unit's current attack target, so when casting an ability that requires target, apply buff to caster, buff = swap weapon

    the validator idea would not only need to register the buff, it would need to know if the casting unit of the buff is the same unit casting this ability

    I know this may be super late, but seeing as I both ran into this problem and a fix, I'll necro dis a bit

    Use the actor message "animation baseline start" after model swapping it doesn't seem to register the baselines (probably to make it easier to play specific animations after the swap) , just start em up again with the message and it should be fine

    @Alceister: Go

    Hey dudes, I'm going to necro this as I am searching for the same thing

    I managed to get a copy of the original viking assault with turret z, but I need one with "walk attack" animations, and preferably a fighter mode with turret z as well, for I never got that one when it was available.

    EDIT: if any one of the 413 people who managed to download this: http://www.sc2mapster.com/assets/viking-w-turret-z/

    when it was available could send it my way, that'd be great.

    posted a message on Unit from UnitTag

    Hey guys, I can call a unit tag from a unit, but how do I call a unit from a unit tag? Would make MUI far more feasible for me

    Used to do it in War3, can't imagine they wouldn't put it in SC2, but I can't seem to figure this out, at least not with basic GUI, thus why I came here.

    I'm guessing it's pretty simple in galaxy, I just don't know how :(

    The idea is to have 1 effect-target ability that applies a persistent, then have multiple other abilities that all fire to that target, I think the best way to do it is unfortunately triggers cause it seems you can't pass targets unless both effects using them are part of the same data stream, separate abilities just won't work.

    Which is rather unfortunate, I was hoping to expand my knowledge of data a bit, shame.

    In theory, it could however be done with a crazy switch effect, and have the persistent periodically cast said switch effect every .5 seconds after targeting the unit, the switch effect would register what behavior the caster had (also validating distances etc) then casting the required effect accordingly. (removing the behavior from the caster of course)

    So the persistent created will set the target, and the other abilities will just give the caster different behaviors for the persist to register which ability it should be casting. In theory

    However it would be much less time consuming to use triggers, and then the abilities could be dynamically set as well, soo, prolly going to do that. Whata shame

    Yes I could, but I'm looking for a data solution specifically

    posted a message on [Solved] Passing a target to Effect - Instant

    Sorry to revive this a bit, was wondering if anyone found a better solution to this

    I want a targetting persistent effect, then have the other instant abilities call targets from that effect

    For now It seems I cannot do this thing I require, I might be able to do it if I had a very elaborate switch effect on the persist effect itself, that would do my desired effect if the caster had a certain behavior on him, then have each ability be a "add behavior" that adds what I need it to, persist registers and removes it then carries on

    Though this sounds clunky, and kind of strange considering they have options for effect targets in the effect itself.

    I could probably do the search area solution but since I have multiple units using this, I think the targetting from the other units would mess it up would it not?

    Maybe my answer is to have the "targetting" behavior cast a persist on creation?

    posted a message on Request: Slash Missile

    iunno, but if a modeller comes on at any point, I'm looking for an edited version of the Shape Cresent Moon, wondering if you could make it look like a slash spell effect. Like, wind scar or some shit. I'm giving the zealot an energy beam slash projectile. If you could make it white that'd be great so I can tint it in-game with TC

    basically need a cresent beam of energy, if, that helps. So far I'm just using the shape crescent, and it's not bad, but it doesn't have any shiny effects

    posted a message on Recolored Effects

    @phanalax128: Go

    all of the effects! it would be great if ya could make a mod out of em

    I'm talkin, hyperion missile, adept soul missile, photon cannon missile, the explosions for all of those, bullet squibs, bullet impacts, etc etc

    I'm implementing some "upgrades" that when learned, recolor the effects to your desired color, or swap them to the color of your team and so forth

    though after I set it all up, I get offshoot colors instead of the ones I desire, thus, the desaturization

    I will also start desaturating some of them and we can combine our efforts
