library DamageType /* v1.0.1

*/uses/*
*/  Damage  /* thehelper.net/forums/showthread.php/168144-Damage-Struct

A useful tool for creating custom damage types.

***********************************************************************
*
*   function UnitDamageTargetEx takes unit source, unit target, real amount, 
*   integer damageType, boolean considerArmor returns nothing
*       -   Deals custom type damage, will fire functions registered to
*       -   it.
*
***********************************************************************
*
*   struct DamageType
*
*       -   Creates custom damage types that are evaluated only when
*       -   dealt through the UnitDamageTargetEx function.
*
*       static method create takes nothing returns DamageType
*           -   Creates a new damage type.
*       method register takes code func returns triggercondition
*           -   Registers the function to the damage type.
*       method unregister takes triggercondition whichCondition returns nothing
*           -   Unregisters the function from the damage type.

***********************************************************************
    
This needs to be a textmacro in order to keep the encapsulation correct
and private within the Damage library. Consider this textmacro private.

**********************************************************************/

//! textmacro DAMAGE_TYPE_EX1
    globals
        private trigger array DamageTypeTrig
        private integer       DamageTypeEvent = 0
    endglobals
    
    //*********************************************************************
    //  This function will make damage dealt pass through the custom damage
    //  type's filter.
    function UnitDamageTargetEx takes unit source, unit target, real amount, integer damageType, boolean considerArmor returns nothing
        local integer prevType=DamageTypeEvent
        set DamageTypeEvent=damageType
        if considerArmor then
            call UnitDamageTarget(source,target,amount,true,false,ATTACK_TYPE_CHAOS,DAMAGE_TYPE_NORMAL,null)
        else
            call UnitDamageTarget(source,target,amount,true,false,ATTACK_TYPE_CHAOS,DAMAGE_TYPE_UNIVERSAL,null)
        endif
        set DamageTypeEvent=prevType
    endfunction
    
    struct DamageType extends array
        private static thistype size = 0
        
        //*********************************************************************
        //  Only the corresponding trigger created for the damage type will be
        //  evaluated once the damage is dealt.
        static method create takes nothing returns thistype
            set size=size+1
            set DamageTypeTrig[size]=CreateTrigger()
            return size
        endmethod
        
        method register takes code func returns triggercondition
            return TriggerAddCondition(DamageTypeTrig[this],Filter(func))
        endmethod
        
        method unregister takes triggercondition whichCondition returns nothing
            call TriggerRemoveCondition(DamageTypeTrig[this],whichCondition)
        endmethod
    endstruct
//! endtextmacro

//! textmacro DAMAGE_TYPE_EX2

    //*********************************************************************
    //  Fires the trigger using the custom damage type as an array index.
    call TriggerEvaluate(DamageTypeTrig[DamageTypeEvent])
//! endtextmacro
endlibrary

I imagine the importing instructions require the user to delete Jesus4Lyf's UDTEx, and implement these textmacros instead.

Why not have the importing instructions already documented?

I'll add implementation instructions to the main library explaining why you should remove J4L's Damage from your map

    Signatures can be edit in your account profile. As for the old stuffs, I'm thinking it's because Blizzard is now under Microsoft, and because of Microsoft Xbox going the way it is, it's dreadful.

    @tom_mai78101 I must be blind. If I go on my profile I don't see any area to edit the signature; If I go to account details (settings) I don't see any signature area either.

    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
