System G_Indexer (Unit Indexing)

GFreak45

I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
G_Indexer can assign custom values to units, recycle them, and reuse as wanted. It includes 2 custom actions 2 custom functions and 1 setting.

Setting:

Custom value array used:
This is the array that is used obviously, in wc3 only 1 custom value was capable of being stored, but in sc2 you can have many stored, but they can not interfere with each other or you will have an overlap of data causing glitches depending on what you do with it.

Actions:

Set Unit Index ([ljass]function UnitIndex takes unit Unit, Parameter Allow/Disallow returns nothing[/ljass])

This will be select-able in the gui actions under the Unit label, or just search for index and both the actions should come up, once copied/pasted in of course.

Trigger:
  • Set Unit Index
    • Options: Action
    • Return Type: (None)
    • Parameters
      • Unit = (Triggering unit) <Unit>
      • Allow/Disallow = Allow <Allow/Disallow Option>
    • Grammar Text: Attach a new index to Unit, Allow/Disallowing index recycling.
    • Hint Text: Attaches a new index to the selected unit. If Allow has been chosen then, if there are indexes being recycled (to save memory), this will use those before creating new ones. If not it creates a n...
    • Custom Script Code
    • Local Variables
    • Actions
      • General - If (Conditions) then do multiple (Actions)
        • If Then Else

            • Else If
              • (Custom value Used Custom Value Index of Unit) != 0.0
            • Then
              • Unit - Recycle the index for Unit
      • General - If (Conditions) then do (Actions) else do (Actions)
        • If
          • Allow/Disallow == Allow
          • Recycle List[0] != 0
        • Then
          • Unit - Set Unit custom value Used Custom Value Index to (Real(Recycle List[0]))
          • Variable - Set Recycle List[0] = Recycle List[Recycle List[0]]
          • Variable - Set Recycle List[(Integer((Custom value Used Custom Value Index of Unit)))] = 0
        • Else
          • Unit - Set Unit custom value Used Custom Value Index to (Real(Next New Index))
          • Variable - Set Next New Index = (Next New Index + 1)
      • Variable - Set Indexed Unit[(Integer((Custom value Used Custom Value Index of Unit)))] = Unit


Recycle Unit Index ([ljass]function RecycleUnitIndex takes unit Unit returns nothing[/ljass])

This is used to recycle each integer when they die or some time afterward, heroes should not be recycled unless the player leaves.

Trigger:
  • Recycle Unit Index
    • Options: Action
    • Return Type: (None)
    • Parameters
      • Unit = (Triggering unit) <Unit>
    • Grammar Text: Recycle the index for Unit
    • Hint Text: Recycles the index for the unit indicated.
    • Custom Script Code
    • Local Variables
    • Actions
      • Variable - Set Recycle List[Recently Qued] = (Integer((Custom value Used Custom Value Index of Unit)))
      • Variable - Set Recently Qued = (Integer((Custom value Used Custom Value Index of Unit)))
      • Variable - Set Indexed Unit[(Integer((Custom value Used Custom Value Index of Unit)))] = No Unit
      • Unit - Set Unit custom value Used Custom Value Index to 0.0

The functions below are simply conversions and accessing variables so they will not include the code seeing as its 1 line :p
they are simply for convenience.

Unit Index ([ljass]function UnitIndex takes unit Unit returns integer[/ljass])

This is used to get the index of the selected unit (best used in variable arrays)


Indexed Unit ([ljass]function IndexedUnit takes integer Index returns unit[/ljass])

This is used to get a unit based on the index, this way you can essentially save integer values rather than units, much more memory efficient.

    It is online though at night

    You would probably have to take a loan to get the Rice cert it is like 14l
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
