Announcing unit spawn via game chat

Hello,

I've stumbled upon this code here on TheHelper and it works great, however I don't know how can I announce the spawned unit's location in such manner.

''Prime Ghoul has spawned on the left (region1) , help your allies'' or ''Prime Ghoul has spawned on the middle (region2) , help your allies'' or ''Prime Ghoul has spawned on the right (region3) , help your allies''

The code I'm using is this

Prime Ghoul has spawned on the left, help your allies


Trigger:
  • Random Region
    • Events
      • Map initialization
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set Region[1] = Region 1 <gen>
      • Set Region[2] = Region 2 <gen>
      • Set Region[3] = Region 3 <gen>


Trigger:
  • Create Unit Random Region
    • Events
      • Time - Elapsed game time is 20.00 seconds
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set TempPoint = (Center of Region[(Random integer number between 1 and 3)])
      • Unit - Create 1 Footman for Player 1 (Red) at TempPoint facing Default building facing degrees
      • Custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_TempPoint)

You can use a string array
LocationName

which you initialize together with your regions as
LocationName[1] = "left"
etc.

Then you use an integer variable for the random number:

spawnRegion = Random Number...
TempPoint = Center of Region[spawnRegion]
...
Display Text : ... "needs help at the " + LocationName[spawnRegion]

hope that helps

Excellent, works as intended. Thanks for your help and sorry for the late reply.

    I have a GIF though

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?

    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
