Math + Physics + StarCraft = Zoan

All the time.

StarCraft can handle stacked buildings no problem, but the only time you want stacked units is when they are all burrowed (since if you stack un-burrowed units you get a bunch of "unit unplaceable" errors when the map starts).

Quote from Zoan
Would you be willing to implement a method of inputting 'custom conditions/actions,' or is that too much of an ask?

( e.g. let the user define a set of triggers which detect if a a unit is burrowed, then later on they can as a condition put "burrowed(player, unit, location, blah, blah)" and the map will automatically copy-paste the set of triggers they defined earlier.)

I personally think that it isn't a thing that's needed for trigger editor. Internally everything must be translated into normal conditions and we have only maximum 16 of them. The use of this option would be vastly limited. I would better like to see convenient copy/pasting capabilities (like paste 5 times etc.). The same goes for actions. Maybe one would think of parameterizing the whole triggers, and at first glance it looks like a useful option, but from my experience I've never needed such a thing in real projects. What triggers could really benefit from is some kind of grouping mechanism with an ability to comment/name/annotate groups. Then maybe an option to specify and analyze groups logic dependency is a road to go.

P.S. My vote to separate units and buildings stack goes here!



Some.

I see you !

For stacking: Sounds like "No stacking" / "Stack buildings" / "Stack units" is the way to go then.

Ultraviolet -- 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

Ultraviolet -- NudeRaider
NudeRaider shouted: UV how far are you with imp UV2? is it already better than the first map? Fully playable?
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
