Can anyone help me out.

I'm having problems in this line

Untitled Trigger 002
Events
Unit - A unit enters Region 000 <gen>
Unit - A unit enters Region 001 <gen>
Unit - A unit enters Region 002 <gen>
Unit - A unit enters Region 003 <gen>
Conditions
(Owner of (Triggering unit)) Equal to hostileCreeps
Actions
Unit - Set the custom value of (Triggering unit) to (Custom value of (Triggering unit))


This line inparticulary Unit - Set the custom value of (Triggering unit) to (Custom value of (Triggering unit))


I can't manage to set it to Unit - Set the custom value of (Triggering unit) to (Custom value of (Triggering unit)+1)

How do I +1?

I've tried different options all around but nothing seems to hit the spot.

Thanks

Btw great guide. I think this is all I need to make my TD.

Thanks a million man. It worked.

But now I have different problem :(.

Untitled Trigger 003
Events
Unit - A unit enters Region 003 <gen>
Conditions
(Owner of (Triggering unit)) Equal to hostileCreeps
Actions
Unit - Remove (Triggering unit) from the game
Set livesCount = (levelCount - 1)
Leaderboard - Change the value for hostileCreeps in boardDisplay to livesCount
If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
If - Conditions
livesCount Equal to 0
Then - Actions
Wait 2.00 seconds
Player Group - Pick every player in inGamePlayers and do (Actions)
Loop - Actions
Game - Defeat (Picked player) with the message: Defeat!
Else - Actions


When a creep enters last region my lives goes from 100 to 0 :(.

I'm positive its -1 in the set variable of level count. What did go wrong here

Creeps being blocked?

What if someone purposely blocks the creeps and the creeps cant move and does not want to attack, what do i do?

Make it so that the path the creeps must go along is completely rock or another unbuildable surface if you don't want them to build on it, or do this for areas where you do not want them to build - Some TDs allow people to build on the path, some don't, I prefer the latter.

I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
if its a mazing type td, give them an attack, then if they stop because they are blocked, they start rampaging around the maze destroying towers

tmpPoint



What bothers me is this line:
Set tmpPoint = ((Picked player) start location)

How do I set up so they spawn at multiple locations that aren't players' spawn point? (marked with an X on the screenshot)

Thanks for the help, but I fixed it already.
In case anyone else encounters the same problem, make a new region array containing all spawn points, and use the following action to spawn mobs:
Set tmpPoint = (Center of regionArraySpawn[(Player number of (Picked player))])

Fantastic Tutorial!
Still great after all these years.

I always remember this one as the tutorial which got me started with the World Editor.

Thanks!

I regularly refresh my photobucket accounts to keep the images in my tutorials from not displaying due to inactivity.

Plus I still get regular PMs asking me questions regarding how to trigger etc. because of my tutorials (which now gives a great oppurtunity to remind that if you have a question, please post it in the WEZ as a new thread, not PM me).

Oh, and happy New Year! (though I think nobody will see this)

Your favourite Pandaren,

Andrewgosu

P.S.

Woah, it's been almost five years.

Umm ... I need help. I agree this is the best to learn how to make a TD but, I am having troubles with the triggers.. Can you make it more descriptive because I just Can't seem to find the right triggers. For example take a screenshot for a specific Trigger and then show what part of the guide it is... other than that thank you! This is a very good guide!

    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?

    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.
