You might not even be here, but all of your images disappeared. (Well, by Photobucket. :p)

Ghan pointed out that you can still see them if you go to the image location, or save as.

We'll need to reupload the images though. :(
It seems many of AndyPandys resources have done this.

Heyaa

Hello everyone.

I'm new here, trying to learn as much about mapping as i can since i'm basically a complete newbie to the whole thing.
So first of all, great tutorial! But it seems that the pictures have been put down, as you've probably noticed.

Being that it's probably quite annoying for the creater when this happens:banghead:, i would be happy to host the pictures needed, so things like this doesn't happen in the future. This goes for all other tutorials suffering from this problem of course.

Let me know what you think :)

The pictures should be up and running now.

(Plus the ones in my other tutorials)

Help with the timer

Hey there, and thanks for the awesome Tut :D. The only part im stuck on is the timer part, coz im not really sure how to do it. I can see the timer, but it just says (=== + (Wave + ((String(levelCount)) + ===))). Do you type this in the value part, or do i have to change the function or something.
Thanks.

Saved me!

Thanks! This one really saved me. I didn't actually make a tower defense, but was able to extract the info I needed :) Had been sitting around for hours trying to figure out why my leaderboard+life system didn't work... +rep most definatly

Need some help =)

Hey dude, just wanted some help with a variable.
"set inGamePlayers = (All players matching((((Matching player) Slot status) equal to is playing) and (((matching player) controller) equal to user)))"

How do I create this line?

Awesome tutorial mate ^^

So far I've been successful in recreating a lot of your tutorial, but there is one problem which I can't seem to solve.

My trigger is looking like this:
wc3h.png


When it should look like this:
wc32.png


Long story short; I can't figure out how to add the +1 value at the end.

Edit: Finally I stumbled upon the solution by accident.

That worked for the half of it yeah.

But now the problem is that when creeps go below a certain % of hp, they start returning back again.

What is their problem now? :mad:

You can try setting the value to something big for the "Creeps - Guard Distance" field in the gameplay constants.

Alternatively, create more regions and order the units to follow the path more frequently.

I'm having the same problem. Just want to point out that that solution posted above does not work. There is a way to fix it, since I've seen TD's that work maze-style and don't have the problem, but I cannot find the solution. Anyone...?

in this part:
Lastly, you might want to change the appearance of the tower. The general appeal. Change the fields below to your liking.
You can maybe put a word that you can see what the model looks like if you leave the main window up, and it shows on the left the model.
i LOVE the tutorial btw xD AWSOME!

Multiple Types of Creeps in a Wave

Using your style of triggers as a foundation, how would you change around your triggers to allow multiple types of creeps spawn in the wave?

I tried to Rep+ but I "need to spare some rep" before doing that again to you...

Thanks for the great work!

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine 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 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

    I bitch about Xenforo sometimes but it really is full featured you just have to really know what you are doing to get the most out of it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is just not easy to fix styles and customize but it definitely can be done
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do know this - xenforo dropped the ball by not keeping the vbulletin reputation comments as a feature. The loss of the Reputation comments data when we switched to Xenforo really was the death knell for the site when it came to all the users that left. I know I missed it so much and I got way less interested in the site when that feature was gone and I run the site.
