Player Group Alliance Trigger

Hey guys!

First off, hello to you all. After using this site for weeks now, I figured I may as well sign up, and try to help out with questions :)


However, I need a quick confirmation from someone here about a trigger of my up and coming RPG.

Basically, I have made two sides to the entire RPG. Horde, and Alliance. Everything else works, but now I am on to one of the more complicated areas of my RPG...

I have made a battleground, and the idea is that when a Horde player enters the battleground, they receive a "temporary enemy flag". What I mean to say is that when a Horde player enters the battleground and is in the battleground, he/she will set all Alliance players to enemy status. The same goes for Alliance. Then, once the player leaves the battleground region, they go back to being allies.

Here is what I have so far...


Synopsis: When a player enters the battleground area (region), they will receive a message alerting them that they have entered the battleground. At the beginning (character selection), if you choose a Horde Character, you are put into a player group called Horde, and vice versa for the Alliance. When a player enters the region, if they are Horde, they set the Alliance player group to enemy. The player must also be level 10 or higher to access the battleground.

Variables Used:

Horde[1-8] - Boolean - Used at the beginning of game when players select their character type. If it's a horde hero, then it will set Horde[Number of the Player] = True. If Alliance, it will be set to False.

Battleground1 - Region - The Battleground region.

KnockbackHorde - Region - If the character is not level 10+, it will force-push him back to just outside the battleground entrance.

AlliancePlayers - Player Group - All players that are on the Alliance side. (Horde[] = False)

One last note. The coding in bold is the part I'm really curious about. I'm not sure if it will make the entire Player Group (HordePlayers) that contains the owner of the triggering unit to set AlliancePlayers to enemy, or if it makes a new player group purely for the triggering player.

Coding:

Code:
Events
[indent]Unit - A unit enters Battleground1 <gen>[/indent]

Conditions

[indent]((Triggering unit) is a Hero) Equal to True[/indent]

Actions

[indent]If (All Conditions are true) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)[/indent]
[indent]If - Conditions[/indent]
(Level of (Triggering unit)) Greater than or equal to 10
Horde[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] Equal to True
[indent]Then - Actions[/indent]
Game - Display to (Player group((Owner of (Triggering unit)))) for 3.00 seconds the text: Now entering |cff99...
[B]Player Group - Make (Player group((Owner of (Triggering unit)))) treat AlliancePlayers as an Enemy[/B]
[indent]Else - Actions[/indent]
[indent]If (All Conditions are true) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)[/indent]
[indent]If - Conditions[/indent]
(Level of (Triggering unit)) Less than 10
Horde[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] Equal to True
[indent]Then - Actions[/indent]
Game - Display to (Player group((Owner of (Triggering unit)))) for 3.00 seconds the text: |cff995500Your leve...
Unit - Move (Triggering unit) instantly to (Center of knockbackHorde <gen>)
[indent]Else - Actions[/indent]

So that's about it. If any of you programming masters could take a look and tell me if it's alright, that'd be much appreciated. I guess the whole "rep" thing is like currency on these forums, so of course I will "+rep" as they say, to anyone able to assist. Thanks again!

It will just make the player who's hero entered the region make all the Alliance guys as enemies, which is what you want, but the Alliance guys won't automatically treat him as an enemy. So, it works half way, so what you want to do is add another action making Alliance players treat the player as en enemy also.

(You are leaking a location and a few player groups in this trigger btw)

Perfect, just what I wanted to hear :) I have the Alliance Version of it already done, just used the Horde one as an example. I'll try and take care of those leaks too. Thanks!

  • 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

    I bitch about Xenforo sometimes but it really is full featured you just have to really know what you are doing to get the most out of it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is just not easy to fix styles and customize but it definitely can be done
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do know this - xenforo dropped the ball by not keeping the vbulletin reputation comments as a feature. The loss of the Reputation comments data when we switched to Xenforo really was the death knell for the site when it came to all the users that left. I know I missed it so much and I got way less interested in the site when that feature was gone and I run the site.
