    posted a message on [Solved][Unit Spawning] Units are spawning that shouldn't

    Nvm, figured out the problem. After viewing the factory in the data module it seems that there were multiple units assigned to a single button / slot that I never fixed when I added different dependencies. It was stacked up with the cyclone, so whenever I'd produce a cyclone, it would also produce a Diamondback.

    posted a message on [Data Module] How to get the data module to remember tabs?

    Anybody know how to get the data module to remember what tabs to keep open after I restart the program? The "lock tab" function doesn't seem to do this.

    posted a message on [Solved][Unit Spawning] Units are spawning that shouldn't

    On my map there are  3 AI bases that are separate players. When the map initializes they are all triggered to become allies and change their color to the same color.
    The attack waves triggers require the bases to have the appropriate production facilities in order for the units to be 'produced.'

    Only one of the bases is supposed to make Diamondbacks. My issue is that the other two are making Diamondbacks too and that's nowhere in their triggers to do that. Not only are they producing them, but the units don't even go along with the other attack waves, they just sit by the rally locations for the bases and slowly stack up.
    Even after disabling the Diamondback spawning trigger for the base that is supposed to spawn them, the other Diamondbacks still spawn.

    If it's at all important, both of those bases' attack wave triggers are copied and pasted from the one that is supposed to spawn Diamondbacks. However, after pasting them I went through and changed the relevant data and units involved in the attack waves.

    Anybody know how I can fix this?

    Well, bit of a late reply for this and you might not even see it since you haven't been on in over 6 months, buuuut...
     
    I'm pretty sure that's just the "dynamic pathing" fill and is only visible in the editor when you're viewing the pathing layer. I'm not positive as to why it defaulted to be on your map or if it has any use in your map. You can get rid of it using the pathing tools.

    I sorta wish the pictures weren't all messed up... this tutorial looks good.

     Hey, thanks for your advice here. I wanted to check out some of the tutorials before replying. There is a lot of helpful stuff on that page and it should be good enough to at least get me well on my way. Thanks!

    I’m brand new to using SC2 map editor. I’m almost done with the design for my first map and figuring out that part has been pretty simple (though I realize that just making the terrain and slapping doodads on it is probably the easiest part).
    I don’t even know exactly where to post this because I just sort of have some general questions and I’m not sure what categories they involve. The tags listed are just semi-educated guesses.

    Generally I’m looking for anyone who can directly answer the questions or if you can suggest to me a good tutorial on the creation of mods that answers the questions and isn’t from forever ago (post LoTV is preferable). I’ve already written 70+ pages of planning (concepts, story, dialogue, mission design, etc.) so I’m pretty committed to seeing this through.

    My first question regards dependencies for both map and mod creation. From what I can gather, Liberty/Swarm/Void mod & multi-mod dependencies are incompatible because they have differing stats for the same units. When you load multiple, conflicting dependencies like that does it just add two of the same unit or overwrite the unit (so long as it has the same ID) with whatever data is further in the load order? The plan is to add units and change the stats on some, so I’ll be changes a lot of the data anyways (as tedious as it will be).

    Also from what I understand, the mod & multi-mod dependencies are mainly associated with melee/multiplayer games. Seeing as how Blizzard has added units and abilities (as well as taken them away) for melee/multiplayer which aren't in the campaign, when that data is overwritten--or if you do not include certain mod/multi-mod dependencies period (WoL/HotS)--do you not get the assets associated with those?

    Second, what is the “glue” dependency?

    Now, for my last question, I’d like to know if what I have in mind for the mod/maps/campaign is even possible with the tools available in the map editor. The concept I have in mind is kind of like the WoL upgrade system with the Laboratory and Armory upgrades, but more complex. It would involve an elaborate menu screen that would function like the WoL campaign where you go to different ‘locations’ on the Hyperion for purchasing the upgrades. The credits and other resources you use to purchase upgrades would need to be constantly updated after every mission and are based on mission performance. On top of this, it’s also a non-linear story (like regular campaign) where you have an option of the next mission you’d like to play. This would mean that each mission could involve different units, stats, research, and unit stats based on what missions you played before it.

    All of the custom campaigns I’ve played or seen let’s-plays of have been linear mission lines with very bare-bones menu screens. Any upgrades you received during the playthrough were automatically provided and set for each mission. I’m wondering if that’s because that’s the way the creator chose how to do it or if that’s all that the map editor allows.

    If you’d like me to clarify any of these things, just ask.
