# 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.

I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
• Varine:
They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
• Varine:
I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
• Varine:
I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
• Varine:
I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
• Varine:
I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
• Varine:
Which is unique I guess.
• The Helper:
Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
• The Helper:
So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
• Varine:
How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
• The Helper:
The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
• Varine:
I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
• Varine:
Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
• Varine:
Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
• Varine:
And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
• Varine:
These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
• Varine:
Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
• Varine:
Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
• The Helper:
Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
• Varine:
That's mostly what I've been looking at
• Varine:
I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
• Varine:
I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air
