An artist's depiction of an Extended Unit Death

So there used to be a program made by Angelfarto that would quickly create an explosion pattern for bound maps. My friend LeXteR said that he no longer had the program, and that it was outdated. He then asked if I would be willing to make such a program. Here's the result.

Bound Maker
Creative title, amirite?


Basically, this program provides a quick and easy way to design obstacles for bounds. After you design an obstacle you like, you can then generate the trigger code needed to create it in SC.

Walkthough


Note: This program requires .NET Framework 4 to run.

Thanks to:
LeXteR - Inspiration, beta testing

Looks interesting, possibly useful, even though a lot of people think SC1 is dead, there is a slight possibility I might use it for something.



None.

Thanks. I know it's a bit late for a new program, especially for a specific genre that hasn't really thrived since pre-1.14, but I appreciate the support. :D

Vrael -- ur not a true scotsman because you're not even a scotsman

Lanthanide shouted: it is a bit fiddly to get it working, especially as text triggers use quotes around unit names like "Terran Marrine" and so you have to double-escape them in excel like ""Terran Marine"" which can get annoying
You also could use special characters or something that excel doesn't normally use (nor function based off of), and then do a replace all once you turn it back into text form. Though im sure thats nothing new.

sraw531 -- Lanthanide
Lanthanide shouted: use ='text here ' & A1 & ' finishing text' to get excel to reference the content of another cell (in this case A1) as plain text within another fragment of plain text
thanks Lanthanide, I never thought to use excel. It will probably still be difficult since its not just the conditions changing, but also the actions in a non-standard way (picture-based). Still, it will probably save some time.

Jack -- You can't say I'm not a true scotsman or you'd be committing the no true scotsman fallacy ;)

Jack -- Also, can I use the no true scotsman fallacy to claim that I actually am a scotsman, even though I am neither scots nor lived there ever?

Jack -- How many true welshmen are actually true scotsmen though

anyone who says they're a true scotsman is no true scotsman
