Hi, I am making a sort of 6v6 aos map and use neutral victim and extra for the creep waves.I changed the gameplay constants such that the return distance and time is max but i have neutral hostile creeps that do not return to their camps now. What is the best way of doing making creeps return to their camps after a certain time or travelling a certain distance.I have about 30 camps so I don't want to do it manually by when unit enter certain region. unit belong to neutral hostile. wait then order him back to the region. Thanks in advance

Basically this is all stuff which is in gameplay constraints.

Creeps - Guard distance
: change this to 200, this means when they return to camp they will be at MOST 200 from their original location. i would not reecommend 0. Also if you are fighting at under 200 range, they will not run back to their camp area, as this defines the camp area. at 250 range they will run back till they are at under 200, at this point they may turn back if the creep or a nearby creep is attacked nearby.
Creeps - Guard Return Distance (how far they can run before they are forced to return) - Depends on the map? if you want to prevent "creep pulling" keep this number at a maximum of 1000 (luring "neutral hostile" creeps into "allied" creeps forcing them to fight, then last hitting the neutral hostile units to receive the gold, without taking damage) i doubt they'll run very far anyway.
Creeps - Return time, so how long they will fight for outside of their guard range, so if this range is only 200, they will return a lot faster. - Your choice on the number again, don't make it too low or ranged heroes can lure them out then attack them when they flee WAY to easily. 5-7 secs is about right imo

If i set it according to this, won't the neutral victim and hostile creeps from creep waves just return to their creation point after moving a few hundred range?

And you know it.
Yes they will. You could make a region for each creep camp, and check if the creeps from that camp gets over xxx range away with a trigger. If they do, order them to go back.

Does it need to be XXX range? There probably is but i must admit i didn't see it.

Personally i would have Event: unit leaves area
Condition: Player controlling unit = creeps
Condition: Region equal to "Camp near bottom lane" or whatever
Actions:
wait 5-10 seconds (can be made random or a set period of time)
Give order "move" to triggering unit to centre of "triggering region?" (not sure if triggering region would be there but it should be)

The problem with as it is, is that you will need a separate trigger for each creep camp.

So this means you can't lure the creeps too far out and forces them to return after a set amount of seconds. If you fight them inside their creep area, they will just fight.

I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
just make another region thats centered at the same point but has a larger range (xxx times 2 because it has to include the extra area on both sides)

Both your suggestions require a trigger for each camp which I stated in first post to ask for an easier way as I have over 30 camps

i see

you could make them neutral extra, make all players enemies of neutral extra and trigger their attack/help range and return range

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
