Ive tried some things but I cant get this to work. How am I supposed to make chain lightning only zap in a straightish line... Like hits a unit... then zaps the guy behind him..
 
You'll have to trigger it. When chain lightning is cast, create a dummy at the position of the target. If there is another target within some small angle, then order the dummy to cast chain lightning, and so on, until the unit count limit is reached.

i second this, get a variable and make it store the value of the angle between the caster and the target, thenget a group variable and check if there's any units behind that unit

exactly what i tried... and failed. Its not picking up the facing angle.
This is what i had....
Create unit at target ability being cast facing facing angle of target
(unit never moves in angel mind you)
Unit group.... pick every unit in front of it, order last created unit to cast another segment.

mind u it never works because the unit created never faces the correct angle.
 
Put a trigger that faces the caster to that over 0 seconds with a small wait...also set the turn rate on the caster to low....set the dummy units creation to face what the caster is =D

hope this helps

ps. not 100% sure if that will work but im pretty shure it will

    See how we like that.

    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
