Use math - arithmetical. First blue field select the lives and the second one 1. Then change the sign to "-".

Beautiful and extensive tut, you deserve more rep than I can give!

Excellent Tutorial :D
I found it very helpful.

Thanks for the positive feedback!:)

This is an awesome Tutorial, but I'm having a bit of a problem.

I am glad you have solved it. To prevent the same mistake, I edited the tutorial saying the creeps must cost atleast 1 food in order the spawning trigger could work.

Very good job.
Please note, that there are at least (edited in at least because of following post :) ) 2 ways to do corpse cleanup.

There is the trigger version (Which is the one you've shown)
And the Gameplay Constants version.
Pro - Unit's flesh and skeleton fade out quickly instead of disappearing instantly.
Con - No randomness, like the wait trigger in the Tutorials Example.
Which is...


Go to Advanced - Gameplay Constants

Make sure the following is checkmarked.

Scroll down and set the following value to how long you want it to take for the unit to disappear.(I would sugjest between 3 and 25)
RemCorpse2.jpg


The following value is added to the time it takes for the unit to disappear. (Sugjested value = 1.00-1.50)

There are actaully three ways to do Corpse clean-up. Go into the unit properties and change the setting for
"Combat - Death Type"
to
"Can't raise, Does not decay."

Now the corpses will appear for about two seconds and then dissapear from the game.

"Combat-Defense Type" help

I would like a more detailed description of how all the different defense types affect a unit, and the damage taken by the unit. The types are: Normal, Small, Medium, Large, Fortified, Hero, Divine, Unarmored.

Any help is appreciated! :D

This is being very helpful, and thus, I salute you.
The best of all the TD tutorials I saw.

"The weapon of the tower"?

If you mean the projectile, which the tower shoots, find the "Combat - Attack (1 or 2) - Projectile Art" field in the Object Editor.

When I edit this, will it change the splash (if available) or anything else or just how the attack looks? Is there a way to customize those Arts, or preview them doing it, or do I need to test the actual map? Thanks for the help.

As the name suggests, it will only change the projectiles appearance.

You can preview the arts by having the World Editor open on the background and the Object editor up, above it, so you can see the little preview window.

If you want the tower to do splash damage, modify the following fields:

"Combat - Attack (1 or 2) - Area of Effect (Full Damage)"
"Combat - Attack (1 or 2) - Area of Effect (Medium Damage)"
"Combat - Attack (1 or 2) - Area of Effect (Small Damage)"

And if you need to change the targets affected by the splash damage, you can modify the ""Combat - Attack (1 or 2) - Area of Effect Targets", but it is already settled good enough while being default.

    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
  • Varine Varine:
    How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • 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
