I've done some major updates to this tutorial:

- Made it more compact and easier to understand
- Added a FAQ which includes how to add spells to a spellbook via triggers

Feedback is appreciated!

Always looking forward to adding new Q&A's to the FAQ.

Im creating 2 spell. 1 is Brillance Aura and the other Unholy Aura. The Hero will learn Brillance Aura and will be given the spellbook wif Unholy Aura. My question is can I hav the Unholy Aura having multiple levels?

If yes, then how do I set the level of Unholy Aura in spellbook = Level of Brillance Aura of Hero?

Btw, I found out something amazing regarding the bug that spellbooks close automaticly once you remove an ability.

Deactivated abilities do not close spellbooks upon removal!

This simple function is enough to prevent that annoying book-closing:

JASS:

call SetPlayerAbilityAvailable(P, abilcode, false)
call UnitRemoveAbility(U, abilcode)
call SetPlayerAbilityAvailable(P, abilcode, true)


EDIT:
Tested it again ... the code above only works, if there is a small duration between setting the ability unavailable and removing it!
You have to add a small period timer to this between the first two lines.

HOW TO ORDER A UNIT TO OPEN A SPELLBOOK

There is no way to do that.

Is this really true? I noticed that you could just order the player to push the hotkey for the spell book. Lets say you set the hotkey to Q for the spell book, then simply use:

Code:
Game - Force Player 1 (Red) to press the key Q

Works great for me :)

I'm looking for a simple way to simply have more than 4 abilities (passive) per items, no need for triggers or anything, is there a way to do that with spellbooks? How?

Do you mean you want to add passive abilities?

Just add the four abilities and remove the spellbook?

I did, but sometimes some abilities wouldn't add, and it appears to be random too, sometimes I drop the items with the additional spellbook that have the abilities I want, and when I pick it back some, some of the missing abilities are there, and vice-versa, it's very strange... I did try to deactivate the spellbook but no change at all...

I have a bit of a problem... When I have followed this tutorial and when I putted my 8 spells in the spell book there isnt 100% sure that they display ingame. I can open the spellbook and I can cast spells from it but often there are like 2 or 7 spells in it when I have added 8 spells. The minimum spells is at "1" and the maximum is at "8" and still this problem occurs :(

EDIT: No problem, I solved the problem. The minimum is now set to 8

Excuse me if I am wrong, but the first page says that you cannot open a spellbook via triggers/scripts. Now i havent read through all of these posts here and maybe somebody already mentioned it, if thats the case i am very sorry, but if nobody did may i tell you how to open it:

You just give some shortkey to the spellbook, lets say the shortkey [W].
Now you use this action:
Trigger:
  • Game - Force Player 1 (Red) to press the key W

and the spellbook will be opened as long as player 1 (red) has selected the specific unit with the spellbook.

i hope this information might be useful, again i am very sorry if it has already been said.

when i do this

Trigger:
  • Untitled Trigger 002
    • Events
      • Player - Player 1 (Red) skips a cinematic sequence
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set Unit = Paladin 0003 <gen>
      • Set Ability = Hardened Skin
      • Unit - Add Ability to Unit
      • Unit - Set level of Ability for Unit to 1


it just add the spell to the hero and not the spell book.

and let me get this right.

Dummy --> Spells
Spell book --> Hero/unit

How can i make it so certain items when equipped (the items have the skill "Item Equip Use") will give the user a certain ability within the spellbook?

The method I'm going for is using Levels in the Dummy Spellbook. Each Level within the Dummy Spellbook has a skill pertaining to certain items, and every time the hero equips an item, it will gain a certain skill via a Level of the spellbook.

If i'm not overlooking anything, I won't be able to have different amounts of abilities in the Real Spellbook due to the faulty method?

Please help me out on this, I've been hitting myself in the head and starting over and over again for about 2 weeks now.
If you need any clarifications please ask!! I don't think I have explained all of it but I'm not sure where

    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    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
