    posted a message on Targeting Unit with Magazine from one of its Ammo Units

    In reply to professorterrible:

     

    It is only possible if the Magazine unit is internal, in which case "Outer unit" is the one location to look for. Otherwise, the only method for an external magazine to track its owner would be to have a behavior on it created by the magazine owner, and when it's time to search the caster, you look for the one who gave the behavior as caster required (Unit Compare Behavior Count Validator). Otherwise, there is no method (or maybe unit tracker) that can directly trace it. It is however one of my wishable content request to the dev team.

    You can adress a magazine unit with the Iterate Magazine effect. You can return a unit in the magazine with the Load Container effect. Just take note that there is a bug that prevents unit from being Released from Magazine effect if they were put in the Magazine from a Load Container effect. It's a bug that won't be solved until I can reach out to a single employee, when Blizzard Activision will settle their internal mess.

    posted a message on How to get a Model Animation Style one shot to copy the host's turret orientation point?

    So I have the Crusader's model from that Talon faction (this is like an immortal unit). When it dies, im trying to have a secondary actor create a secondary model of that unit, and it works. I just can't manage to have the turret look at the same place.

     

    Otherwise, I had a work around, I made the unit's death being its own model. It worked, however, Im not so sure how to modify the DeadAnimationMacro or the UnitDeathModel, as It seems I cannot use a timer set event, this either a bug, either it is ignored for reasons I don't know.

     

    Any advice?

    posted a message on How to make creep auto spread by itself?

    I invite you to find the "Digester Creep Spray" ability to see how they did (assuming you have it in your dependency). Most to keep in mind, is to make a dummy unit (invisible) that has a creep behavior. Now there are ways to keep control of that unit, but we can manage that later. There's also the possibiliy of having a create persistent effect use a creep effect, at a target location point, but remember, having a lof of those will lag your map like crazy. So it's up to you, what method would you like ?

    posted a message on Need an example of Data Collection Via Upgrades

    I'm trying to see what I can or could do with Data Collection, and since this is new since patch 5.0.0, I haven't been able to use them for upgrades (how should I proceed anyway?), and neither can I use upgrades data as Blizzard suggests, to be called for instead of upgrading fields (meaning you can relate units to the upgrade, so I presume they will all receive the upgrade's bonus if correctly linked).

     

    As much I'd like to know how to proceed, I thought somebody could give me an example, they help me understand better. Unfortunatly, even 5.0.0 patch notes with their "pyramid" and their {} don't give me the slighest clue on how to use it.

     

    Thanks in advance

    posted a message on set upgrades from Barracks Techlab via Data module?

    Yes, you could simply put a behavior on a relevant unit that expires, leaving a "Modify Player" effect. In that effect you put the upgrades. Also, in case you want this kind of spam (doesn't matter, but if performance you seek), you could put a requirement on that behavior that limits to 1 behavior total, avoiding other same units to spam the Modify Player effect. As I tell still, this is not really needed, as the performance might not even be affected at all.

     

    There are also many other means to do so, depending on what you're willing to use or not.

    posted a message on Can Triggers/Variable validate its condition on an specific "Requirement"?

    I know triggers have the "Requirements are Enabled For Player", but this has nothing to do. I want to validate an action based on a requirement, regarding the triggering player. Is that even possible?

    In reply to willjay84:

     

    Yes, success yet, I've advanced, but it's still not functional, great help still! See what I get now is on the first screenshot now.

     

    On the second screenshot is the update of my triggers.

     

    My actual problem is that yes, the button is created, but I'd like the icon of the current progressing upgrade to show up in that button.

    Can you help me out with that part?

    posted a message on Where can I get the Actor Events Target codes ?

    I'm using using them for many reasons, but I only know a few of them. Yet, only the veterans of the editor would know.

     

    When I create an actor within the actor, I can change its scale, tint, etc from the very same actor that creates it,  and for that I use the Target box, and type the ID name of the Actor that was created. If I want to modify the actor's portrait and send it events, I type ::PortraitGameSelf

     

    This ::PortraitGameSelf is a code. I want those codes. What is the one for an attach model, or death actor, or build actor. How can I know those target codes that are known by heart or unknown?
