# Ability Help - Snare Trap

##### You can change this now in User CP.
I'm making an ability called Snare Trap. Snare Traps are wards, where if a unit comes within 250 degrees of them, every unit within 400 degrees of the Snare Trap becomes ensnared.

Any ideas on how I could do this?

250 degrees? 400 degrees?
You mean distance or angles?

I think he means the radius, so distance.

I've tried this before. And by degrees, I mean distance. I have know idea how you measure distance in wc3, so I figured degrees worked.

Anyways, The problem I'm having, is that I want a dummy to cast ensnare on each unit within 400 degrees of the Snare Trap once the Snare Trap is detonated.

I've tried a number of times, but no success.

Have you tried giving the dummy an auto-cast ensnare based upon the crypt fiend's web that can target ground units? The only problem with that one I might think of would be getting the trap to break in the process.

Maybe I'll try that. However, atm I'm at school posting so I can't.

Create a trap that does nothing.
When the snare trap spell is cast, create the trap and add it to a unit group.
Periodically check all the units within 250 of the snare trap. If there are more than 0 units, destroy the snare trap remove it from the group, pick every unit within 400 and create dummy casters to cast ensnare on them all.

but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
• The Helper:
check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
• Varine:
The homeless people reminded me of New York
• Varine:
I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
• Varine:
I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
• Varine:
I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
• Varine:
Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
• The Helper:
i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
• The Helper:
Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
• The Helper:
Just not enough food trucks
• The Helper:
a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
• The Helper:
He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
• The Helper:
he is killing it
• jonas:
@Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
• jonas:
I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
• jonas:
My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
• Ghan:
The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
• tom_mai78101:
I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
• The Helper:
My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!

@Gyah Yeah I figured they aren't particularly valuable, but they'll at the least act as a baseline for some entry level work somewhere.
• Varine:
I now see how horribly I spelled @Ghan
• Varine:
I had a rough morning
• The Helper:
that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
