    Terrain Objects

    Siretu, I actually tried using the hide terrain cells brush, but it didn't do anything. I'm working off a mac, could it be bugged for mac? Is there some setting I need enabled? Also, can anyone offer insight as to why the cliff walls have that raised looking terrain around them?

    The Valhalla tileset is not a space platform, no. The terrain object I'm using is specific to the Valhalla tileset though.

    10 kills -> win

    Simple, you need two integer variables, we'll call them Team1Kills, Team2Kills (assuming you have two teams) When your criteria for a kill are satisfied then you increment the appropriate team's variable by 1. Then you check if the variable is >= 10. If it is, declare victory/defeat...

    Is (Random Integer between x and y) not really random or am I doing it wrong?

    This. A computer is not capable of generating a random number. Instead, what it does is use several fixed seeds (values) and then uses an algorithm to pick a number, which mimicks a random selection. If you know the seed and the algorithm you can accurately guess the number the computer will...

    I need help with my custom spell with triggers

    Your problem is that you're using the for loops and the wait in the Unit Group loop. Move the loops and the waits out of the Unit group loop and see how that goes.

    Linking Maps RPG style

    Hello, I was wondering if there was a way to link maps together akin to the way it is done in Bonus campaign from WC3:TFT (The one where you control the beast master) If you can do this, how do you also carry a unit between the maps. I don't need a super detailed answer, just the basic...

    Referring to Unit Spawned by Black Arrrow/Parasite

    You can always add the unit that has the black arrow buff to a group and then every second check to see if it's alive or not. If it's not then create your summoned unit and refer to it via (Last Created Unit). Also check to see if the buff has worn off and if it has then remove it from the...

    Cruiser Command concept brainstorming

    Ah, I see. So then I guess the boarding ship should have some sort of stealth ability. Not necessarily cloaking, but maybe it can't be seen on the minimap or is immune to sensor towers or something like that.

    Cruiser Command concept brainstorming

    I'm not sure how many units your players can control at once, but for a boarding ship I'm imagining something small, hard to hit, either no weapon or a very light weapon, but if I can get in melee range of a ship it will deal massive damage with boarding parties. So you can have the ship have...
