How to get the x,y of a untis position

In GUI?
Set X = X of (Position of (Triggering unit))
Repeat for Y.
Remove the point leak...

Use JASS:
Set Unit = (Triggering unit) (or whatever unit you need)
Custom script: set udg_X = GetUnitX(udg_Unit)
Custom script: set udg_Y = GetUnitY(udg_Unit)

Where X and Y are two global variables of type "real".

So why in jass spells i see [ Get blah blah x and y ]

And then refer to the x and y in a position action?

Why not they just use GetLocation of that unit?

In JASS, it's certainly better to use coordinates.
If nothing else, reals don't need to be taken care of for leaks.

Locations are a pain to use.
They only make sense in GUI.

Also for w/e reason, if you change a units location it 'forgets' its current orders. If instead you Set its X Coordiante and Y COordinate it keeps its orders.

    So you are pursuing game dev as a hobby? What industry is your dayjob in?
  • jonas jonas:
    FAANG?
  • Jesus4Lyf Jesus4Lyf:
    Not quite FAANG, less pay for a less hours/stress. Yeah, game dev as a hobby.
  • jonas jonas:
    makes sense. Do we have a hobby game dev subforum to showcase some work?

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
