Let me show you how to hump without making love.

I want to find out what a unit's armor value is through triggers, how do I do this? I will then be adding, removing and performing various effects depending on the outcome of course, so any and all ways to find it out (not just through triggers) would be great!



None.

You just want to check using a condition? That would be as simple as comparing the value. The condition is called "Unit Property" and you can make the comparison like so:
(MY_UNIT Life Armor (Current)) == 1

If you mean firing a trigger when the unit's armor hits a certain value, you'd either have to make a custom event or just have a trigger that periodically checks the value (if the armor can only change through upgrades, having a trigger with an event for an upgrade completing would be an optimal way of approaching this).

In the end I may not need this, the entire reason for it is gone since I realized that I can just detect each individual scenario that would change armor anyway, most of the time that may even be through data. So I think the problem is resolved.

NudeRaider shouted: Ultraviolet Oh, then your versioning is maybe a bit misleading. I didn't have much trust in a v0.2
I suppose that's one justification for pushing it to 1.00. I'm still messing with some novel concepts, I completely revamped the Shadowcraft hero in v0.18 and there's some kinks to work out with some of the other changes I made, but I suppose that doesn't mean I can't call the currently version 1.XX

Ultraviolet shouted: Imp UV3 is actually in the works with some major changes, but it's been slow going. I'd like to have a version of Imp UV for every tileset at one point.. hopefully it doesn't take until 2030 :P
prediction: It will. ;)

Ultraviolet shouted: NudeRaider Oh definitely fully playable. I used the first map as the shell, so it was basically complete from the first release. I've made some tweaks and improvements here and there based on nuances between the maps, like UV2 has more air units so certain ground-focused heroes like Psycho and Shadowcraft have needed some buffing. Other improvements have been little bug fixes or ways of stopping cheese strategies (like the bosses now spawn in a random location instead of at their lair so players can't just camp them with nukes. UV2 is definitely harder despite only being 4 levels + boss fight instead of 5. I'd say it's definitely worth a go, there's some unique mechanics that make each of the levels have kind of their own interesting spin
