Don't use Crypt Fiend models, use the Nerubian ones, there are variations and they look more like ants and less like spidery dead things.

I'm sure there are also models for various insects on TheHive, if you want to check it out. The banner link is on the left side of the page.

Attached map is an old ant map I was working on.

I would post notes here, but apperently Windows enjoys installing a program on your computer when you restore it, and than asks for a cd-key (which the computer did not ship with) in order to run it.
The fucking hell is that?


Anyway, I don't have wc3 installed at the moment so I can't check exactly what's in it.
The main trigger in it allows a huge amount of information to be tied to any individual unit, much more than the custom value allows.
I added 25,000 to coordinates when saved on to the unit because it removes negative numbers, and 4(or less) digit numbers. When the coordinates are called, they are subtracted by 25,000 to get the real coordinates.

The purpose of this system was to create very frantic looking battles;
1: Unit is ordered by player. order cords are stored on the unit.
2: when an ant attacks it is given an order to move within X distance of the attacked unit. These order coords are not recorded and are ignored.
3: Unit reaches last order (from attacking unit) it is than ordered to it's original, stored order location.

I did not have the time to code in support for order-type I believe, but I may be wrong.

Once it stops moving, it's ordered to it's orignal move location


EDIT: TheHelper has incredibly low upload space. So no map I guess until I find a place to host it, instead of hosting it on this crappy site.

    As for Github, I often frequent there, boasting about my genetic algorithm for tools-assisted speedrunning and such. I'm also pretty active on Discord, with my tag @asperatology.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, the whole earthquake + air pollution combo made me completely forget about bringing updates. I'll be sure to keep on top of things after all things are less requiring my attentions.

    I am just glad that you are OK Tom! Thank you for the update!
  • Varine Varine:
    Glad to hear you're okay! I only knew about your Github cuz I tried to follow some of you when I was learning how to program, but didn't understand any of it so kind of quit paying attention to what anyone does on it

    Briefly, he'll only be there for the interim. Like a stopgap of sorts, he'll be back home in short time
  • O Old Mountain Shadow:
    Hurray! Tom has reappeared!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Happy Thursday!
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    Yep. Just another fun night at work.
  • Varine Varine:
    Broke the nozzle on my 3d printer and I don't have another heater block. So... I guess I'm fucked on that this weekend
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that sucks i bet they are expensive
  • Varine Varine:
    Not really
  • Varine Varine:
    The entire hot end is like 20 dollars, I just can't get anymore until next week
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
