A Suggestion for Map Modders/Makers about MBS

Since there is so much heated discussion about the MBS (Multiple Building Selection) why not do this:

Create a set of triggers or a mod (that can be applied to any Pro melee map) that effectively creates an artificial MBS in SC:BW.

I'm a little rusty on the map editor (and I never was really that good), but I could see it something like this:

Current player creates factory, set switch 1.

switch 1 is set - any more factories created will be moved (to some place on the map and unusable) and a placeholder will be created, set switch 2.

switch 2 is set - current player spends X at factory copy action to all available moved factories.

if a place holder is destroyed take away a factory.

etc, etc.

This would take some really clever triggering which I could probably figure out if I hid in a cave for a month. (no offense mappers, I just suck at switches).

Anyways, The goal would be to have 1 factory,barracks, starport, hotkeyed to 1 key and build more that 1 unit at 1 button press.

If anyone can do this please do it!
If everyone starts to play it they can see the pros and cons of MBS without just 'theorycrafting'.

PS- I'm not sure if this can be properly emulated with triggers or not, But it can surely be done with a mod right?

Permaphrost's hack, Zero, which eventually became Zephyr, accomplished this. So I assume that would be easier than creating a map or mod for the same purpose. It also allows more versatility, imo.

Your post wasn't deleted. There is 3 topics with the same name, and the same content.

That's what I call, spam.
