Is it possible to arrange Skills in a Spellbook?

For example if I add a Skill and set the Button Position to (0,0) and another Skill to (0,1) etc., sometimes the skill have other arrangements.
(Even though I also added them in order at the Spell List.)

Attachment:
Code:
(x,y)

0,0 1,0 2,0 3,0
0,1 1,1 2,1 3,1
0,2 1,2 2,2 3,2

If their 'normal' button position are set correctly, they should appear in their set positions.

Maybe since a spellbook isn't technically the normal UI, try setting 'Research' and 'Turn Off' to the other positions you want too?
Spellbooks also just may scramble them no matter what you do.

The only thing I could think, is every time a new spell is learned, check what one's the hero has and remove then re-add them in order in-game.
That would suck, and would be a ton of work though :eek:

As far as I know, there is no way to set a spell's position in a spellbook. It ignores the usual settings for this.

I tried to set the 'Research' and 'Turn Off' to my positions.
I think I have to trigger it just for the sake of aesthetic appearance, oh boy.

You have a ton of work ahead of you to trigger that.
Honestly, it's a minor annoyance, but I wouldn't do all that just for aesthetics.

With that information, you could just add abilities to a hero, pre-load them (Spawn then remove them), and that will let you keep the order you want.

The skills appear in the spell book in the order they are loaded by the game. If you're careful, you can get them in the order you want.

First of all, thanks guys for your precious help.

I was amused when I read the article at the other forum weep :)

In fact I created a trigger which adds the skills in the order I want them to appear. (Wasn't that hard though.)

Regarding the OrderID: What happens if two skills have the same OrderID?
(I can imagine if one unit has two different abilities with the same OrderID
they would either not cast anything or both skills.
But what happens if two different units have the same abilities? (I guess there won't occur errors.)

In that case one can assign the first 11 OrderID starting with "absorb" - "attackground" and use them in the
correct order inside the spellbook. I suppose it will work for every unit, wouldn't it?

Yours, xAna.

If the same unit has two spells with the same Order String, it will cast a random one.
If two different units cast the same spell, or spells with the same Order String, it works fine.

Not completely true, if a unit has 2 abilities with the same order ID it will always cast the same one of them, not a random one.

but you can have as many spells share the same order ID as you like as long as no unit got more then one of them at once.

Apparently not. I gave a unit 2 Crushing Wave abilities, one as a Unit ability and the other as a Hero ability which it learned later. It casted the Hero one first.

You could have a "Blank" ability, based on Channel without the Visible option checked. You can add that into a spellbook as a filler ability as many times as you like to determine the position of the other spells. Tried and tested solution.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine 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 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 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 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 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 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
