    So as far as adding new tutorials goes, should we be using http://wiki.sc2mapster.com/Tutorials ?

    I've always been looking at this page: http://www.sc2mapster.com/wiki/galaxy/tutorials/

    posted a message on Building fire animation

    Well, there's already going to be an event that spawns the buildings (probably will end up being a simple enter region event). Also it's a single player map, so lag is usually less of an issue.

    I have seen posts about creating efficient code/triggers though... It's pretty hard for me to figure out since I don't have any experience in coding.

    posted a message on Building fire animation

    After taking a look at the monitor actors, I came up with this, "Actor - Send message "Create TerranFlameSetFire" to actor (Actor for (Last created unit))". It seems to word just fine. It even does smoke instead of fire on the buildings that aren't that far down on health. Even healing and destruction of the building works properly as far as fire goes.

    I'm probably around a beginner level when it comes to data, and intermediate with triggers, so I'm wondering, why would this approach be considered worse? It's just one line (used in a loop).

    posted a message on Building fire animation

    Hey guys. I have a trigger that spawns terran buildings, and then lowers their health percent into the red. They make fire noises, but no visible fire is seen.

    I've tried using "Actor - Send message "AnimPlay {} Fire" to actor (Actor for (Last created unit))" Also tried attacking the building with a regular unit while it was in the red.

    What I want to happen in map: Player comes to the entrance of a base of an ally of which he has shared vision. The buildings are created with their low health, as well as some zerg units who are attacking the base.

    Edit: Btw, I'm using "Unit - Set (Last created unit) Life (Percent) to (Random real between 10.0 and 40.0)" for the building damage.

    posted a message on So I made a new tutorial...

    It was inspired by this post: http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/9882309249 Tutorial:

    Don't think I should put it in the tutorial list, or forum, cuz if you're able to make it there, then you're far too advanced for the tutorial itself. Also, it's my first video tutorial :D

    posted a message on Can i create ramp and cliff with trigger?

    I haven't heard of it being possible either. You could make some rocks invulnerable to block off a ramp, then kill them with triggers later. The cliff would need to be already made though.

    posted a message on Kill all units in a region?

    The other one that drives me crazy is when I use pick each integer, then use picked player instead of picked integer. x.x

    posted a message on Warp-in to point frustration

    I took a look at two of the test maps I made way back when I was testing out how the super warp gates worked. One thing I wrote was that the warping in player needs to have enough supply, or the units won't warp in. Do they have enough supply?

    Dunno if it'll help, but here's the two test maps I made. I was trying to create a way to warp in units anywhere without the need for a pylon. Tried using a hidden observer that had a power field. There's probably a better data way to do it, but I'm horrible at data editing xP.

    posted a message on Building Creep Tumors through bullies

    @DeltaCadimus: Go

    I'm not entirely sure what type of map you are making, but here's a way I simplified adding creep tumors over time.

    I placed a bunch of neutral creep tumors over the map. I created an array record with a unit variable and a point variable. At the map initialization, I had the game pick each of those creep tumors and store its position in the point variable. I also told it to remove the creep around that point, as well as the neutral creep tumor.

    My particular map then used conditions like when there is creep at those points and no creep tumor, a zerg drop pod came down and a creep tumor spawned.

    Do keep in mind that this will make the map preview image covered in creep.

    @DrSuperEvil: Go

    Well, in that case you can just make one map, and republish it under a different name for each holiday :D

    posted a message on Get unit damage with triggers

    Use "Unit Property" and choose life or life (percent). Or did you mean the damage they do when they attack? In that case I think you'd use one of the "Catalog" actions. And you'd want to have it look at the effect that does the damage.

    posted a message on Nydus worm problem

    Exactly what FunBotan said. I made this very same nydus worm mistake in one of my first maps. Since you're waiting 2 seconds before turning the trigger off, any unit that enters the region will trigger this during that 2 seconds before it is turned off. So moving turn current trigger to the top of the actions will fix it.

    posted a message on I need ideas

    I think it'd be cool to see some more story based maps. They don't have to have a lot of action, but if they told a good story, that'd be awesome. And if you could make dialogue choices that make a difference, that's even cooler.

    posted a message on A July 4th map

    Was thinking it'd be cool to have a July 4th map. Any international folks who don't know, July 4th is when USA celebrates its independence day.

    The map would probably be mostly cinematic with a lot of explosions, haha. And a good song would need to be playing as well, either a national song, or just something to rock out to. Hey, could even go with over engineered cod piece (or maybe it was called Terran up the night), lol.
