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

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • 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
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
  • Varine Varine:
    How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air
