# Detecting the highest / strongest player?

#### thevoden

##### New Member
Lets say I have the following variables:

-Zones Controlled
- Most towers built
- Most hero kills
- Most artifacts held on a hero

How do I detect who owns or controls the "most" through a trigger?

##### You can change this now in User CP.
when they control zone/build tower/kill hero/get an artifact
add 1 to an integer variable for that player, then ur condition would be comparing the integer variables

what trigger is it that compares the integers and stuff? Specially the highest and such ? I can't find it specifically what your mentioning.

Okay, this isn't the most efficent way to do it, but it is the easiest to understand/modify (I hope)

Basically, you detect when a player does something that would add to their score (kills a hero, gets an artifact, ect), and add it to a global array. Then you calculate hte mvp by adding up the values, and comparing them until you find the greatest power.

Here is how you detect the player with the most hero kills:

Code:
``````Hero Detect
Events
Unit - A unit Dies
Conditions
((Triggering unit) is A Hero) Equal to True
Actions
Set HeroKills[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] = (HeroKills[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] + 1)``````

And here is how you would detect whenever they get an artifact.
Code:
`````` Artifact
Events
Unit - A unit Acquires an item
Conditions
(Item being manipulated) Equal to [COLOR="Red"](One type of artifact)[/COLOR]
(Item being manipulated) Equal to[COLOR="Red"] (Another artifact)[/COLOR]
Actions
Set Artifact[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] = (Artifact[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] + 1)``````

If you wanted Artifact to represent the current number of artifacts they own, you just copy the trigger, but change it to
Code:
`` Set Artifact[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] = (Artifact[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] - 1)``
Also, you change the event to
Code:
``Unit - A unit Acquires an item``

And for towers:
Code:
`````` Towers
Events
Unit - A unit Finishes construction
Conditions
(Unit-type of (Triggering unit)) Equal to [COLOR="Red"]Your Unit[/COLOR]
Actions
Set TowersBuilt[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] = (TowersBuilt[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] + 1)``````

If you want to make it the current number of towers a player owns, all you have to do is do what you did for the artifact trigger, and make it subtract one when a tower type unit dies.

I dont know how you are calculating zones, but you would use a similar method to detect how many they own (maybe if you have a trigger that gives the players control of a particular zone, you can set their global array there)

So now we need to calculate the mvp. All you need to do is make a trigger like this, and run it when you want to calculate the MVP

Code:
``````Calculate
Events
Conditions
Actions
For each (Integer A) from 1 to 12, do (Actions)
Loop - Actions
Set MVP_Check[(Integer A)] = (Artifact[(Integer A)] + (HeroKills[(Integer A)] + TowersBuilt[(Integer A)])) +ZonesControlled[(IntegerA)]
Set MVP = Player 1 (Red)
For each (Integer A) from 2 to 12, do (Actions)
Loop - Actions
If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
If - Conditions
MVP_Check[(Integer A)] Greater than MVP_Check[((Integer A) - 1)]
Then - Actions
Set MVP = (Player((Integer A)))
Else - Actions
Game - Display to (All players) the text: ((Name of MVP) + is the best!)
And any other actions you want go here``````

Basically i set a value for each of the players, then looped through them to find the one with the highest value.

Hope that helped

It' s under integer comparison. Make your own variables. Use events or other triggers when someone captures region, acquires item then add +1 to player score integer.

Can you be more specific? Which one of that trigger does the integer comparison. I went into that section and I cannot see how it can detect who has the highest and such. Do you mind posting a sample trigger?

Thanks

Integer comparision is a condition....under conditions. And you need to decide how you're doing zones before we can help you.

Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
• 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:
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:
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:
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:
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:
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
