HELP PLEASE! Triggers for opening gates with levers

Hi everyone! Thanks in advance for your help!

I have a gate on a fortress, and inside the fortress I have two levers. On one lever I have a trigger that when the lever dies, the gate will open and the lever will resurrect. The other lever closes the gate. This system works just fine, and I can open and close the gate using the levers with no problem.

The problem is that if another player destroys my gate, all I have to do is hit one of the levers again and it resurrects my gate. I can't figure out how to make this not happen.
I've tried making a condition where the lever checks to see if the gate is alive first before opening and closing it, and I've also tried setting a trigger where when the gate is destroyed, it also removes the levers. But both of these triggers mess up my original triggers for some strange reason. They make it so that once I hit the levers to open or close the gate, the levers no longer resurrect. I don't know how to fix it.

I've attached pictures of my triggers.

Thanks so much for your help!

So if you want levers to be only functional while the gate exists you could do: remake triggers to account for 'dead' destructible or just simply make a variable with a trigger which goes like this
Event - Destructible destroyed
Condition - Destroyed obj is your gate
Action - set gateDead = true
Then you check if gate is dead in the lever open trigger or wherever

This won't work because the gate is destroyed by opening it, so you would never be able to close your gates.
There is another problem: you can open and close the gates quickly to heal them back to 100%.

I think you need to do two things:
1) remember the health of a gate when it is opened via lever, and restore it when closing it with the lever
2) have a second trigger that fires when the gate is destroyed, and which first disables the lever triggers, then destroys the lever. Disable this trigger before you open the gate with the lever, and enable it again when the gate is opened.

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done

    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
