Converting a trigger to MUI

I have a spell that traps a bunch of units in web, then after 10 seconds the web is removed from the inflicted units. Unfortunately, if a player casts two different webs, the first group that was webbed does not have their buff removed... which is bad because it means they're stuck forever. I need some help converting this trigger to MUI:

Trigger:
  • Giant Web
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Starts the effect of an ability
    • Conditions
      • (Ability being cast) Equal to Giant Web
    • Actions
      • Set WebGroup[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] = (Units within 350.00 of (Target point of ability being cast) matching (((Matching unit) belongs to an enemy of (Owner of (Triggering unit))) Equal to True))
      • Set TheOtherPoint = (Target point of ability being cast)
      • Unit - Create 1 Dummy Web for (Owner of (Triggering unit)) at TheOtherPoint facing Default building facing degrees
      • Unit - Add a 10.00 second Generic expiration timer to (Last created unit)
      • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_TheOtherPoint)
      • Unit Group - Pick every unit in WebGroup[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] and do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Set ThePoint = (Position of (Picked unit))
          • Unit - Create 1 Dummy Caster for (Owner of (Triggering unit)) at ThePoint facing Default building facing degrees
          • Unit - Add Giant Web (Single Target) to (Last created unit)
          • Unit - Order (Last created unit) to Undead Crypt Fiend - Web (Picked unit)
          • Unit - Add a 5.00 second Generic expiration timer to (Last created unit)
          • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_ThePoint)
      • Wait 10.00 seconds
      • Unit Group - Pick every unit in WebGroup[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] and do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Unit - Remove Giant Web (Air) buff from (Picked unit)
          • Unit - Remove Giant Web (Ground) buff from (Picked unit)

Why don't you just make the web last 10 seconds in the object editor? Is there something wrong with doing it that way?

In the future I plan on making it so that if someone walks into an already placed web they get trapped as well.

Alright, well could someone at least tell me how to clear this leak?

Trigger:
  • Set WebGroup[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] = (Units within 350.00 of (Target point of ability being cast) matching (((Matching unit) belongs to an enemy of (Owner of (Triggering unit))) Equal to True))

Well there is an easy way ...... use CLUSTER ROCKETS and change it's models to WEB and stun to 10 seconds and change the buff to a WEB....... so they are trapped in the WEB = Stunned for 10 seconds......... easy object editor manupilation :)

I thought that was a fantastic idea to begin with, but then I realized that it wouldn't just trap the enemy, it would prevent them from attacking, casting spells, using items, etc. I just want the units to be immobilized from movement.

Try creating a dummy unit that has the web model. Then use a trigger that is when someone comes close to any dummy unit, another dummy unit is created and throws a web on the unit.

Well, what I'm trying to accomplish when it comes to a unit walking into the web and getting trapped, I want it so that once the giant web expires, the web is removed from everyone in that area regardless of when they walked into the web.

I could make it so that it removes the buff from anyone around the dummy unit when it dies, but the only issue is if there's two webs in the same area.. which brings us back MUI.

    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
