    posted a message on How can I consolidate the co-op mods?

    Hi there,

     

    Pretty sure it is in the Allied Commanders mod by Blizzard, but however, I think that all Stetmann and Mengsk data have been set to Blizzard only, which means we can't open it and that it won't show up in our editor. 

     

    As for Starcoop, it has been set to a standard dependency (before Stetmann), which means there will not be further updates for that dependency by Blizzard and that implies that it is short of Stetmann and Mengsk too.

     

    I think Blizzard is putting a brake on all the coop mods that exist, probably because there are lesser people playing coop and that there might be competition in that there are other coop mod alternatives.

    posted a message on How can I consolidate the co-op mods?

     Hi there,

     

    In regard to Coop dependencies, there is one standard dependency - Coop mission (which does not include certain Stetmann and Mengsk data) and another under other dependency - Allied Commanders by Blizzard (which includes all data but is constantly being updated, in other words, choosing this dependency will mess up your data especially when Blizzard makes a patch update with new commanders). 

     

    There is no need to consolidate mods or add additional mods in between. You only have to select the Allied Commanders mod by Blizzard and you have all the latest data including Mengsk and Stetmann commanders. As to why your spawn starting units did not work, perhaps you did not create for example - Terran Mengsk melee starting units action and link it with your initialization trigger. I will give you a sample of my old Faction wars project and perhaps, you can get the idea on how to set up the triggers if it is becoming an issue to you.

     

    The link as below :-

     

    https://www.sc2mapster.com/projects/faction-wars-pvp-extended

     

    At the mean time, I have just completed my Faction Wars mod entitled Faction Wars COOP Melee PvP and available only in the Americas region, whereby in the said project, I have turned each commander into sub-races or factions with additional campaign units and abilities for each faction. Do take a look if you are interested and let me know your opinion about the said mod.

     

    Lastly, thanks.

    posted a message on Triggers for making buildings capturable and spawn units on a timer

    Hi, there,

     

    Welcome to Mapster. In regard to your question, I've made a demo map below.

     

    What this map demonstrates is that when you hit the command center with your marines and once the command center's life drops to half of its maximum value, it will change ownership to player 1 and spawns a marine each 30 seconds for 10 rounds.

     

    I hope that this will answer the said request, and if you do have further queries, feel free to ask. Thanks.

    The sixth to last attachment for Point 4 in the first post above as attached.

    posted a message on [Data,Triggers] Referencing Actors

    Hi, guys,

     

    Below is a simple tutorial on how to reference an actor from another actor via actor events or even triggers.

     

    1. Referencing actor from unit actor with triggers via string or Actor ID.

    Example Usage

    Create a trigger with the following and place a few Oracles as well as some enemy Siege tanks in your map.

     

    Event: Any Unit has Revealed change Create

    Actions: Send message "SetTintColor 255,0,0" to actor (Actor connected to (Actor for (Triggering Unit) via reference "OracleRevelationBehaviorModel")

     

    Do note that the "OracleRevelationBehaviorModel" string is based on the Actor ID.

     

    Next, go to your map and use the Oracle's Revelation ability to reveal the enemy siege tanks. You will notice that the blue reveal model above the tanks now becomes red.

     

    2. Referencing actor from unit actor with triggers via global system referencing.

    Do note that a global actor can only be used to reference one actor at a given time.

    Example Usage

    Place a few Oracles as well as some enemy Siege tanks as in Example 1 in the above.

     

    Next, go to the Oracle Revelation Behavior Model Actor, and under Actor Events, add in the following:-

     

    Actor Creation

    -> RefSet ::global.revelationtest ::Self

    Refer to the second attachment as below.

     

    Then, create a trigger with the following:-

     

    Event: Any Unit has Revealed change Create

    Actions: Send message "SetTintColor 255,0,0" to actor (Actor connected to (Actor for (Triggering Unit) via reference "::global.revelationtest")

     

    Go to your map and use the Oracle's Revelation ability to reveal the enemy siege tanks. You will then realize that there is only one blue reveal model above the siege tanks that becomes red. This shows that global reference will only reference one actor at a time.

     

    3. Referencing actor from actor via target referencing.

    Example Usage

    Place a few Tempests in your map. Then go to the Tempest's Unit Actor and under Actor Events, add in the following:-

     

    Actor Creation

    -> Target:StormSphereAttachment

    -> SetTintColor 255,0,0

    Refer to the fourth attachment as below.

     

    You will notice that the Tempests' blue sphere model now turns red.

     

    4. Referencing actor from actor via signal.

    Example Usage

    Place a few Bunkers in your map. Then go to the Bunker's Unit Actor and under Actor Events, add in the following:-

     

    Actor Creation

    -> Target:OracleRevelationBehaviorModel

    -> Signal Revelation

    Refer to the sixth attachment as below.

     

    Then, go to the Oracle Revelation Behavior Model Actor and under Actor Events, add in the following:-

     

    Signal.*.Revelation

    -> Create

     

    You will notice that a blue reveal model is attached to the bunkers' overhead as shown.

     

    Conclusion

    With the 4 examples as given, I do hope that this simple tutorial will at least help those who still struggle at this topic. 

     

    Lastly, thanks.

    Hi,

     

    Welcome to the SC2Mapster community. With regard to your request on the Coop Commanders Top Bar UI, do have a look at DrSuperEvil's Global Calldown customized top bar UI which draws similarities with the ones from Coop albeit some minor concept differences. The link as below:

    posted a message on Custom Functions

    Updated.

     

    Example usage for Point 7 in the first post above :-

     

    Create a trigger with the following and place a few Tempests in your map:-

     

    Event : Any Unit Enters (Entire Map)

    Condition : (Unit Type of (Triggering Unit)) == Tempest

    Actions : Send message "SetTintColor 255,0,0" to actor (Return Actor Ref "StormSphereAttachment" from Triggering Unit Actor)

     

    You will notice that the Tempest's blue sphere weapon now turns red.

     

     

    Another Example Usage of Point 7 in the above:-

     

    Create a trigger with the following and place a few Oracles as well as some enemy Siege Tanks in your map:-

     

    Event : Any Unit has Revealed change Create

    Actions : Send message "SetTintColor 255,0,0" to actor (Return Actor Ref "OracleRevelationBehaviorModel" from Triggering Unit Actor)

     

    Next, go to your map and use the Oracle's Revelation ability to reveal the enemy Siege Tanks. You will notice that the blue reveal model above the tanks now becomes red.

     

    Hope that these 2 examples as stated will be of great use to anyone who has troubles linking an attached actor to the triggering Unit Actor as shown. Thanks.

    1. Only returns the owner of the first unit in a unit group

     Hi, it works on my map as attached regardless of the unit index in the unit group. See the trigger -> Squadron Strike Cooldown Reset under the File Bomber Precision Strike in the map as attached. Also, use the Squadron Strike Ability from the Orbital Command and see that the strike platform group cooldown works as intended for player 1 (Owner of the Strike Platform Unit Group). 

     

    Did you save the Unit Group Variable (Global) as a string in the Save Unit Group in the Data Table action?, then use it as a parameter for the Function?.

     

    and assumes the unit group is made of units belonging to only one player.

     Yes. That is working as intended.

    Hi,

     

    Please try Scan and Repair in the Battle.Net Launcher. It will fix corrupted files or patches.

     

    Patch 4.9.3 addressed the Swarm and LOTV dependencies issue, so it shouldn't be a problem.
