Forcing a cast on attack, applying cooldown to buff behaviours

Flare

Stops copies me!
Staff member
In an attempt to tweak my weapon modification further, I thought about trying to force the unit to cast a particular ability - while it could probably be done with a behaviour-inducing effect associated with the weapon's Launch effects, I wanted to see if it was possible to get an Effect or Behaviour to cast an ability... so far, I haven't had any luck. Has anyone tried something like this yet, and had any level of success with it? I can't find any Behaviour or Effect types that look useful.

Secondly, is it possible to add a cooldown to passive Behaviours (such as the Concussive Shells slow for the Marauder unit) - I tried adding charges (well, starts with 1 charge by default, a maximum of 1 at any time, and costs 1 charge to use, with a 5sec recharge timer) and I've tried changing the Cooldown values in the Costs window, but it doesn't seem to have any effect on the Behaviour since it's still occuring on every hit. Any idea if it's possible to apply a cooldown to passive stuff?

For the first one I have no idea. I would probably end up triggering it or something similar.

As for the second part, those behaviors occur upon every attack. Im not sure if it is possible to give it a cooldown. I have also tried and failed =/

    I have a GIF though

    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.
