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!

I see you !

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

Vrael -- yeah but you forgot - I went to MIT for a degree in Medieval Shakespearean Poetry, obviously my parents have an income of about $500,000, so mommy and daddy can easily pay for my 3-bedroom-suite $4000/month apartment conveniently located while I work for free

NudeRaider -- no income for 3 months is pretty tough

Vrael -- That doesn't bother me, because I'm only going to work there for about 3 months and then take another offer now that I have irrelevant experience
[07:03 pm]
Vrael -- wow that's an amazing package, when can I start?
[06:53 pm]
jjf28 -- if you think that impression of me yelling HIRED will get you the job... then you're right, but there's no pay for the first 90 trial years, and there's no days off

Vrael -- "HIRED"

Vrael -- Also, in case I forgot to mention it, I'd do some analytics on the Big Data in our analytics Data Lake where we'll analyze some Nano Data from the analytics database into some analytics which we'll analyze with analytics. Analytics.

jjf28 shouted: but how will you handle the backward overflow from the resulting upward revenue stream dynamics?
Oh that's a great question - here's what I'd do. As per Hamlet, the upward dynamics could be handled by an Othellan repertoire demanding on-change systematization of the vertical integration. Instead, we'll take the backward overflow into a horizontal integration using market analytics, resulting in efficiency increases.
