I was wondering if anyone knew any possible way to have a hero spread blight that stays, while they walked. Please help. :D

Do not try to make it via a Blight Spread ability. Make a periodic event to pick the hero every second, and create blight at the position of the hero! I could make you a trigger if you want

However, note that I don't know if you can make this look good. The blight always gets quite uneven when added in small areas via triggers, and if you cannot add blight to less than quite large square grids, or it will not look like blight at all :eek:

If you could make it so I can take a look at the set-up that would be great.
I don't mind if its kinda big. As long as its not HUGE :p Thanks in the meantime :thup:

Uh...maybe you could store the hero in a variable during map initialization then make a periodic event that centers a region around the position of that hero, where the blight would be created

Something like this

Trigger:
  • Blight spread
    • Events
      • Time - Every 0.30 seconds of game time
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set temp_group = (Units of type Your Hero)
      • Unit Group - Pick every unit in temp_group and do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Set temp_point = (Position of (Picked unit))
          • Environment - Create Blight for (Owner of (Picked unit)) from temp_point to a radius of 100.00
          • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_temp_point)
      • Custom script: call DestroyGroup (udg_temp_group)


I even made it MUI :) (maybe that was unecessery and its just a specific hero, not a hero type, that should spread the blight? If there is an ability a unit has, just pick units with that ability instead)

Its actually kind of smooth, nice idea! You might want to increase the blight radius, but I tried it and it looks good ;)

Super smooth, works great and looks awesome! Thanks so much! The only thing I changed was the radius to 800. + rep and Credit in game! :D :thup::D

    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

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
