Here is the problem when i imported the GDD stuff like you sayd in this thread. When i launch the map (WC3 1.26a) Game launches and in game appeares unpassable terrains and some GUI triggers are turned off, like the map is not fully loaded. Does anyone knows what is this?

I havent actually tried this, and it might be a bad idea.

But, setting the Damage variable to a reduced amount will reduce the damage dealt?
Or is this method only allow the user to view the amount of damage, rather than edit the amount of damage dealt?

Hmm guys can someone help me implement this in my map. I have copied both triggeres in my map and did.

Code:
Ultimate fortress fire
    Events
        Game - GDD_Damage becomes Equal to 0.00
    Conditions
    Actions
        Game - Display to (All players) the text: ((String(GDD_Damage)) + done)

The game just says 0.000 damage done. Do i need to set the variables in GDD variable creator myself or they are what they are.

Namely, I need a trigger that will register damage and return it to the attacker. Can someone help me how to do it I'm a bit confused how to use this.

You're using the wrong variable. It's GDD_Event that should change to 0.00 for the damage event.

I'm trying to remove the use of the variable creator. I uncommented the globals section in the code (as it says you can if you use JASS Helper), but it doesn't work. Any ideas?

"It doesn't work" isn't a very good description.

Simply uncommenting the globals block should be sufficient if you're using this system in (v)JASS.

I am using vJASS. How much detail do you want for "it doesn't work"? Is this better: "When I uncomment the globals section and make a function that prints "Damaged!" whenever a unit takes damage and test it with a demo map and tell one unit to attack another, no text is printed on the screen. When I use the variable creator and make a test trigger that prints "Damaged!" whenever a unit takes damage and test it with a demo map and tell one unit to attack another, the text does apper on the screen".

Perhaps some code would be in order. Or even a new thread in the proper location.

is it necessary to paste another GDD for another skill if you already have one in your map?

First of all, thank God for Weep! I was going to make a custom attack system in GUI that would have to use the Damage Point of an attacking melee unit, or the time it would take for a projectile to get to the target for a ranged attack (Distance / Projectile Speed), to time the damage right, but now I can use GDD!!!!!

This is a kind of an old thread I know, but it's about GDD. It's not a problem for me, but something interesting I noticed. When the attack vs. armor damage factor tables in Gameplay Constants are zeroed out, GDD displays 1.000 damage being done.

I'm using GDD_Damage. It came that way ^^. I have a hunch that it's because I set attack vs. armor damage factors all to zero. I was just wondering why it could be that it displays 1.000 damage when it should show zero. Just curious. I know some people display GDD_Event so damage shows up as 0.000 then, and they come here saying "Y U no display damage?!"

If GDD_Event is 0.000 when damage is done, why would it display as 1.000?

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