Find the unit using a unit group and then picking a random unit from that group

Trigger:
  • spell
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Starts the effect of an ability
    • Conditions
      • (Ability being cast) Equal to Animate Dead
    • Actions
      • Set temp_point = (Position of (Triggering unit))
      • Set temp_group = (Units within 300.00 of temp_point matching (((Matching unit) belongs to an enemy of (Owner of (Triggering unit))) Equal to True))
      • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_temp_point)
      • Custom script: call DestroyGroup (udg_temp_group)
      • Set random_enemy = (Random unit from temp_group)


You might want to add conditions for the picked unit, like not magic immune, is a ground unit, non-hero, or whatever. And then just use that "random_enemy" variable for the rest of the trigger, something like this;

Trigger:
  • [...]
    • Unit - Cause (Triggering unit) to damage random_enemy, dealing 300.00 damage of attack type Spells and damage type Normal
    • Set temp_point = (Position of random_enemy)
    • Special Effect - Create a special effect at temp_point using Abilities\Spells\Orc\SpiritLink\SpiritLinkZapTarget.mdl
    • Special Effect - Destroy (Last created special effect)
    • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_temp_point)

Necrach,

Awesome, but this is really what I'm doing, I'm making a hero with a cold power, its last skill is to get the enemy with in the range of the hero and then pick a 1 enemy random unit and then creates a dummy and then the dummy cast a spell on the picked enemy unit (Which is my custom skill.), can you please help me with that! Please!!

I don't see the point of your comment... you just explain him the whole spell... but he answered exactly your topic question. You want now to make the rest of the trigger for you? if i recall... there is a rule against asking for people to do everything for you. And also i see unnecessary posting.

Yet... in order to be nice... just use the exact trigger he gave you, then as a second trigger make something like...
Create dummy unit at position of caster.
Order dummy unit to cast spell on random_enemy.
Remove dummy unit.

That was a bit mean, sorry, I didn't saw the random_enemy variable thingy in the last part.

Necrach your trigger won't work. You destroy the group before you reference the random unit.

Just do this:

Trigger:
  • Set Temp_Point = Position of (Triggering unit)
    • Custom script: set bj_wantDestroyGroup = true
    • Unit Group - Pick every unit in (random 1 unit within X range of Temp_Point) and Do Actions:
      • Loop - Actions
        • ...
        • Do actions to (Picked unit)
        • ...
    • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_Temp_Point)

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
