# A way to select a number of trees within range?

Is there a way to select a number of trees, in range, without using a rect? I have been looking through the GUI and JASS functions and haven't found one. Any ideas anybody?

what is the meaning of rect?

by the way do you try the action as below?
Code:
``````Destructible - Pick every destructible within 256.00 of (Center of (Playable map area)) and do (Actions)
Loop - Actions``````

I'm not sure if you can check the number of trees in range, but you can check if the destructible in range is a tree. I made a spell that is based off this.

Select all destructibles in X range, then order a dummy unit to "harvest" the destructible. Then check his current order. If his current order is still "harvest", it means the destructible is a tree. You could probably then check how many of the picked destructibles there are.

Code:
``````Actions
-------- Set count to number of units owned by player 1 --------
Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units owned by Player 1 (Red)) and do (Actions)
Loop - Actions
Set Count = (Count + 1)

-------- Set count to destructibles in 500 aoe --------
Destructible - Pick every destructible within 500.00 of (Position of (Triggering unit)) and do (Actions)
Loop - Actions
Set Count = (Count + 1)``````

They were just examples.

Rect = Region, and I need to pick a SPECIFIC amount of trees. Even random N destructible's would work.

Combine tommerbob and Jedi's posts, then only do actions if the count is less than the number of trees you want to affect.

Its very easy:

Set i = 0
Destructible - Pick every destructible within 256 of (something) and do (Actions)
Loop - Actions

If (i Less than AmountIneed) then do (Destructible - Whatever action) else do (Do nothing)
Set i = (i + 1)

Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
• Varine:
I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
• Varine:
Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
• Varine:
So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
• Varine:
I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
• Varine:
Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
• Varine:
Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
