Well, to make it MUI, you need hashtables.
getting the basic idea is easy. First of all, at init, create a hashtable. Then, when the text should appear, you need to set a few variables.
Time (real) - the amount of time the floating text should appear, including increasing, decreasing and fading.
Unit (unit..) - The unit which is attacked.
Now add the unit that is attacked to a unit group.
Put all the values inside of a hashtable, under the Key(Attacked unit). Now, make a periodic of picking all units in the unit group, and depending on the time of the periodic also remove from the Real.
  • Event
    • Time - every 0.10 seconds of game-time
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Unit group - Pick all units in UnitGroup and do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Set Time = (Load 1 of (Key(Picked unit)) in Hashtable)
          • Set Time = (Time - 0.10)

Now you need to make checks depending of your increasing\decreasing timing. Remember all is affected by the Time variable, it's like your counter for how long is the floating text is in air.

    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol

    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
