How to: Create a Creep Revival System

Icyculyr

I'm a Mac
I do not think people who need to seek triggers (especially in GUI) know how to clean leaks, and think that someone with as much posts and rep as you, would make clean all leaks, If you wanted, you could put a disclaimer on your tutorial saying it has minor leaks, or not, I do not really mind.

Cheers

I don't know if I could, i can only find Set Life to %, and Set Life to Value. Theres no just "add 60 life"

I've been thinking about reworking tranquility, but that would be hard. If it's a tough solution that's okay. I think I'll figure something out eventually.

If it does leak, then my map would be screwed, cause hundreds of creeps will be killed with multiple players. How caould i get rid of leak? I've read all kinds of leak tutorials, but it's just hard to understand. Would it be something like:

call RemoveLocation(udg_temppoint) ???

I know what leaks are, and how to identify them, but removing, NEVER!

Actually, there is:

Unit - Set Life of (Triggering unit) to Life of ((Triggering unit) + 60)

That can be achieved by using the function "Arithmetic", which lets you add/subtract/times/divide 2 values.

If you need anymore help on this, feel free to post here again.

Very detailed, and works well by making creeps revive at their initial locations.

Approved. :D

> I noticed the title was changed to just, "Creep Revival System"

I did that for the sake of the WET Site. In the User Submitted tutorial section, they go by alphabetical order; I did that so it would fall under 'Creep', but it's not a big thing.

Great tut + rep

just one thing to say though

where you create the unit again at ((Center of (Entire map)) i found that the points were taken from point 0 0

if your center of map is 0 0 this is ok but mine wasn't as i enlarged it and stuff

i found a way to get around this by recreating the unit at the point ((Point(0.00, 0.00)) with offset something

just helping if someone find this difficult

Agreed its a great tutorial but because the point 0,0 works in more situations you might want to add that to the tutorial

also for some reason my editor wouldnt accept the custom script lines

if anyone else has that problem they can replace them with
Set Creep_X[(Custom value of (Picked unit))] = (X of (Position of (Picked unit)))
Set Creep_Y[(Custom value of (Picked unit))] = (Y of (Position of (Picked unit)))

the point 0 0 makes it more acurate and yes it will work in 99% of the time

good way around the custom code

just curious why store the x and y values seperately and why not use the point variable? Is the point variable plagued with problems or something as I think I'm getting a few problems but don't know.

I could ask you the same type of Q: why use a point variable?

Points use X and Ys to return a location.
So there's no difference between them.
Even though using an arrayed point variable might've been "easier", I chose not to.

Why?
Well, because I can I suppose.
It should also be a little faster.
Everyone has different ways of doing things - some people question those ways :p

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    They aren't cutting my responsibilities or interjecting in my management abilities or anything, it's just stupid shit that comes up. And they don't exactly have people lining up for my job, there's not that many people applying for the positions I hire
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, whatever. Thanks for listening guys
  • jonas jonas:
    Sure :) Let us know how it ends
  • Varine Varine:
    All of these things will end happily, they're just stressful. And I still lack many good friends that I can go to, and the ones I can are preoccupied with similar things. Thus general chit chat, cuz for some reason TH and Ghan and Tom all actively keep it up.
  • Varine Varine:
    Just gotta keep Miss Mazie up through the week until her shock wears off and she realizes that she still has family all around her, and bossman will do whatever he's going to do and I'll respond appropriately when it happens. Thank you all for the support, I do very much appreciate everyone being here for me through the years

    Best of luck Varine!
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I just gotten myself an offer to work in China. The pay quadruples my current one. Damn.... Not really ready to start a new life there in China.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have heard that they pay pretty good to English teachers in China - you would be an expat
  • jonas jonas:
    Cool, what kind of job?
  • Accname Accname:
    I would be careful with jobs in China. They can be hit and miss depending on where in China you go. Places like hong kong / Shengzen / Beijing can be neat. Other places not so much.
  • Accname Accname:
    I would recommend searching for some first person experiences for the city you got the offer in. Especially now when the political situation in China is deteriorating.
  • jonas jonas:
    Accname, long time no see
  • jonas jonas:
    What have you been up to
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hey Accname, welcome back.
  • Accname Accname:
    Not much. Working in the Renewable Energy Sector as an IT Consultant. Its okay, but I think I preferred working at the university. It was more relaxed and you met all kinds of crazy people there.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I gotten a teaching position for Biology in a college in Wuhan (yes, there)... I suppose it should be fine there (I hope). Many of my ex colleagues are teaching in China as well currently (none in Wuhan though)
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    And I signed the contract already. I guess there's no turning back....
  • jonas jonas:
    @Accname how many hours do you work? I heard in some sectors IT consultants rack up insane hours
  • jonas jonas:
    @vypur85 sounds nice, have fun : )
  • Accname Accname:
    I am supposed to work 40 hrs a week, but I can work more if I like and I will be paid for those hours (as long as I don't go too far, there are laws and company policies, etc)
  • Accname Accname:
    In practice its basically work as much as you like, as long as the job gets done in time.
  • jonas jonas:
    Haha, my job is like that as well... that usually means I have a few 70-80 hours weeks a year, and lots of 20 hours weeks...
  • jonas jonas:
    a few weeks ago, one of my friends basically said "jonas, I received an invitation to submit something to conference X but I'm too lazy to do it and also the conference isn't advanced enough for my high level of research*, why don't you write something? Oh by the way, the deadline is in two weeks. Enjoy!" so I got two 80 hour weeks out of that kind offer. (*of course he didn't say those parts, but it's a better story this way)
  • jonas jonas:
    now I'll have next week off to make up for overtime :p and I'll play some good old gothic 2
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Hope you are enjoying that gothic 2~
