Hi guys, I need some help from you to help me with these questions :p
  1. How to change the shockwave damage with hero's attribute*multiplier?
  2. Could we make a spell that deals basic damage+additional damage? For example: Raigor's Fissure, instead of dealing 275 damage it will deals Raigor's damage+Raigor's STR*2.

Thanks in advance :)

1. No easy way. Even if it's possible, it's not efficient. You might as well trigger a custom Shockwave spell on your own. :)

2. Yes, you can. You just need to know how to trigger the Fissure ability and the damage part will be determined by you.

Eg.
Code:
Unit - Cause YourHero to damage (Some Target) (275.00+(Strength of YourHero * 25).... etc

If you don't intend to trigger it, you could use a damage detection system to detect Shockwave damage and deal extras. I think that's even more inefficient.

Hm, I guess you misunderstood what I mean with number 2.
I mean when Raigor cast the fissure, it doesn't deal a fissure's damage+Raigor's STR.
But it will deal Raigor's physical damage + Raigor's STR*2 instead. Yes, Raigor's physical damage is which he used to attack normally.

Physical damage is a lot harder to detect. Firstly because there's no function to find it in triggers, and secondly because it has a range. You could trigger all damage bonuses, set default values and use attributes, but it will be extremely complicated. If you don't know how to use attributes in triggered spells, I honestly do not suggest that you try it out.

If it just dealing damage by hero's attribute plus multiplier, I do understand how it works. What I want is that the hero to do what I said above. But if it is that complicated, then I won't insist about it :) .

By the way, to replace number 1. Instead of changing the shockwave damage, could we make spell from trigger which will damage enemies in line? But not instantly, it would be like shockwave. Travels forward and damaging any enemies it comes to contact with. Is it possible?

I quote vypur.

There are plenty of tutorials on the site, and demo spells aplenty. Take your pick.

well something like this maybe?

first trigger

A unit casts shockwave

create dummy unit at position of triggering unit
add shockwave to lastcreated unit
order to cast at target point of abiliy being cast
set integer = Intelligence of triggering unit
set castingunit = triggering unit

second trigger

event - A unit takes damage

Condition - damage source = dummy unit

actions
Order castingunit to damage triggering unit by 0.1 x Number of intelligence points of castingunit

hope you understand

@arre
event - A unit takes damage //this event is invalid cuz is a specific unit event
Specific unit evet : Unit_xxx take damage

Specific unit evet : Unit_xxx take damage


The event isn't invalid. It can be solved easily by creating these two triggers

Time - Elapsed game time is 0.00 seconds

Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units in (Playable map area)) and do (Actions)
Loop - Actions
Trigger - Add to takesdamage <gen> the event (Unit - (Picked unit) Takes damage)

and

Unit - A unit enters (Playable map area)

Trigger - Add to takesdamage <gen> the event (Unit - (Triggering unit) Takes damage)

I know i didn't wrote that in my first post which makes it a little bit unclear.

Could you please post what the description of the ability is? I'd love to try and trigger great spell ideas. (As long as I get to use it on my own map :3 )

Which ability is it? Both of them?
  1. I wanna make a spell like shockwave, its completely like shockwave but the difference is that the damage dealt is based on the hero's attribute*modifier. The reason I want it to be like shockwave because shocwave doesn't instantly damage the units, instead it travels forward and damaging any unit it comes in contact with.
  2. If its possible, I want to make ability which deals Hero's physical damage+additional damage. Where the additional damage can be from Hero's attribute*multiplier or so.

How's about it keychup? Do you find it challenging :)

Let's see if i got this right:

1. Sends forth a rippling wave which damages foes equal to 1.5/3.0/4.5/6.0 times the user's Strength.

2. Stomps the ground, causing damage to units within 300 range equal to the user's ATK+1.5/3.0/4.5/6.0 times the hero's Strength.

    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
