    Nameless Piece

    Thought of it on the ride home, wrote it down immediately when I got back. This bit was written fairly spontaneously, so I myself am not entirely clear on the details. I figured there would be enough time to figure out the little things later and just wrote so as not to break my flow. I'm...

    Climate Challenge

    Play Climate Challenge! It's quite fun, but a tad difficult, really makes you appreciate the troubles the government faces.

    This is basically a non-channel Starfall - or is supposed to be. I have no idea how to periodically move the dummy unit to the location of the caster, and I guess through that periodically check if the caster is still alive. Halp? function Trig_Star_Light_Star_Bright_GUI_Conditions...

    Black Sheep, White Sheep

    Inspired by something I read a long time ago. I've already forgotten what it was about, only that it was a bunch of conversations between a black sheep and a white sheep. ++++++++++++++++++++ One day the White Sheep was trotting towards the fence when the Black Sheep spotted him. “Where...

    Balloons are evil

    Proof (I realize Uncyclopedia has been posted before, but that was some time ago and I don't really want to perform threadomancy. I'm more referring this this article in particular anyways. I found it while - imagine this - researching something for chemistry.)

    Invisible Start Locations

    It's more of an irritant than a problem, but you know how start locations are marked by those jagged circles? Well, I can place them fine, and they work fine too, but I can't SEE them after I place them. I have no idea what I might've done to cause this. Help?

    Lowering for Water

    Started the map with Deep Water. Cliff height 4 or 5. Plateau-ed it up out of the water. Lowering tool gives water. However... There seems to be some invisible boundaries. In three quarters of the map I can only get that small (and ugly) patch of water. In the top left quarter of the...

    Spell Interaction

    Have you ever really looked at abilities are realized that they only synergize at a very basic level? Like, slowing or stunning an enemy. Or maybe, a spell which increases the damage an enemy takes. Pretty much self explanatory stuff. But then look at this: Spell One Deals X damage to...

    Attack Damage Detection

    I was just wondering if it is possible to detect how much a unit hits for (without counting armor reduction or anything else), and add attack bonuses based on that number. (And if so how of course.) Edit: Sort of like a triggered critical strike.

    Cannot convert integer to alliancetype...?

    call SetPlayerAlliance(Player(bj_PLAYER_NEUTRAL_EXTRA), GetEnumPlayer(), bj_ALLIANCE_ALLIED_VISION, true) Huh? Oh yeah, and what does the boolean value determine?

    Spell Flamethrower

    Yet another attempt at a JASS spell, and yet another initial failure. Things are just so much easier in GUI right now... sigh... Will be converting this to JASS eventually. The Pandaren Brewmaster conjures up a stream of searing hot flames which spread outwards in a cone shape. The flames...
