I have a alot of problems making this skill.
Based on thunderclap, a spell were you cannot choose a target, but have to face the target(s) that you wanna hit in a 90* angel. Please help, with this Diffecult cleave ability.

Here is my spell ideér;

Not a single clue how you would do that using Thunderclap. I'd recommend triggering it.
-Use channel as a base ability
-Asuming a circle with the radius r: pick every unit within r around the casting unit
-build a vector from the casting unit's position (the circle's center) in his facing direction
-now pick every unit and, for every picked unit,
--get its position
--bulid a vector from its position towards the position of the caster (aka the circle's center)
--get the angel between those 2 vectors
--if its between 0 amd 45, you can damage it

But by removing the damage from thunderclap, it would be working just fine. Using it as a trigger starter.

Breath of Fire/Frost? Carrion Swarm? They are cone-shaped abilities. You can change the art and what not, give it a debuff, and then have a trigger that checks for that debuff and stun/slow the target for you and then remove that debuff.

@ Syndrome: but they have a point as a target, he wants no target.

So Imp Midna's suggestion will do the trick

But you could still base it on a spell with no target and have a dummy unit cast breath of fire or something.

@MP
I meant to add that you had a Channel ability with no target that will trigger all of what I've said lol
The channel will trigger code that takes angle into account, point out a point some X distance in front of the unit, and then run the breath of Fire on a dummy unit to deal damage + place debuff, then you have a trigger that periodically checks for that specific debuff and then create dummy untis to stun those units while removing that debuff.

    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!
