    Attribute System v4

    Version History:
    • v4 - No longer uses gamecache or requires CSCache, fixed a bug where stat points would not update if the learn inventory was open, minor readme updates, minor optimizations, now only works for 1 unit/player, reports an error if the user tries to enable it for more then 1
    • v3 - Fixed some minor grammatical errors in my documentation, as well as added better vJASS syntax to the library
    • v2 - Fixed problem with morphing heroes, and a bug where the system would start for units you did not enable it on
    • v1 - First release

    A re-release of a simple attribute system I made a while back which allows you to manually choose what attributes to increase when your hero levels up.

    Why use this as opposed to other attribute systems?
    Well as far as I know there is only one, Weaaddars. I used the same concept he did, however, I wrote all these triggers from scratch.
    In comparison, this is far more optimized, has no leaks(that I am aware of), is much easier to import, and has a quite better read me.

    In any case, download, try it out, you may find it useful, and please comment.

    Perfect! I was looking for an attribute system like that for ages. +rep if I can, but which field should I edit to make Heroes gain, for example, 10 attribute points?

    Why AS_Enable is not private?

    Use structs for inventory ffs.

    You know you don't have to put prefixes to your functions if they are public or private?


    Why exactly are you using all these?

    A few things:

    1. --- Above post ---

    2. If you still want to use tables then why write "AS_Item_Att"+I2S(1) instead of "AS_Item_Att1"?

    3. SetItemVisible(it,false). I believe that Vexorian declared that unsafe and added a better way to hide items to his caster system. I think it was something that made AI units pick up items even when they where hidden.

    It moves items in inventory when switching ... shame on you.

    The only safe way to "hide" items is actually to destroy them and then restore them from data stored in structs.
    Data includes items Id, HP, Number of Charges, Custom Value and position in slot.
    This assumes that you are not using item attaching.

    And then you can use cool stuff like UnitAddItemToSlotById :D

    Well there is a lot of critique on this sys, but at least it works properly.

    don't feel like porting it

    don't feel like updating that part, it does not make a difference with performance

    back before you knew of WC3, its all we had/don't feel like porting

    don't remember

    2. so I can loop through the items and add/remove them as needed
    3. never had an issues, if anyone can make it bug, I'll update that, until then, it works as intended

    *This is a systems I released before vJASS or structs, I don't feel like porting, it, this was basically just a release for this site, if you feel like doing it yourself, be my guest

    LoooL, I was making .PUD files .....
    "Back in the days" is such a silly sentance :D

    Anyways like I said, (coding aside) this thing works as it is supposed to work.
    The only remark is swapping item places in inventory.

    >2. so I can loop through the items and add/remove them as needed

    Well, I'm mostly nitpicking but there is no reason to write "AS_Item_Att"+I2S(1) instead of "AS_Item_Att1", the result is the same and we save one string concat and an I2S.

    >The only remark is swapping item places in inventory.
    Suggestion: Instead of adding a "null" item to the hero add a dummy item that you remove as soon as all items are added. Easiest way to get the items to the right place.

    Hmm, second easiest? :p

    Edit: Or not. UnitAddItemToSlotById creates a new item and that's not what we want here. We want to have the same items as we had before entering the Attribute selector inventory.

    So you rather to through the trouble of updating all variable references to items? Or use a struct wrapper around all items? That sounds troublesome to me.

    >bah, how is hiding items unsafe again?
    The only thing I know is there is/was a module in the caster system that uses a hidden unit with an inventory to store items.

    AOE spells that target items can probably destroy them.
    And like someone already said AI units tend to pick up hidden items.

    not if u add a check for IsItemVisible, like a good AI coder

    and well, dont let AoE spells target items, simple as that, why would one do that anyway, does not seem very useful

    in anycase, don't be a sped, and problems will not ensue

    WoW. this System is... Simple :rolleyes:
    Seriously. After I read the ReadMe, I could understand all this (Although I'm not an expirienced JASSer).
    Great System, and great Noob-friendly Coding!
