"Last Created" Trigger Question

When a trigger says "last created" like in the "make (last created) unit invulnerable" does it mean the last created unit created by the trigger? Or will it make any last created unit invulnerable? Also it it says Last created quest is enabled, is that the last one created by the trigger? Thx, tbjl2006

well im pretty sure it speaks for trigger action cuz if u train unit in building it's counted as trained unit and if u use a summon skill it would be counted as summoned unit so i guess the only unit which counts as last created unit is the one created by triggers....

Last created using the "Unit - Create ..." action.

Yeah, I think I understand your question; I had the same one once. With 'last created' it is referring to the "last created" whatever within that trigger.

Within whatever trigger last created something.
"Last created ..." is a global variable. It only exists once.

What happens if you have two triggers that make a unit at the same time?
Two triggers can never run at the same time. Even if they both fire on the same event, one will go and then the other. If you put a wait into the trigger, however, then other triggers will then have a chance to go before the first one is finished. Therefore, if the first trigger creates a unit and then waits, the second trigger can see that new unit with Last Created Unit. Also, if the second trigger then creates a unit, the first trigger won't know it's Last Created Unit as the global variable was overridden in the second trigger. This is why you should never attempt to use Last Created Unit after a trigger has waited.

Then how would do this: you have this trigger-

Event
Unit-unit enters region

Conditions
((Triggering unit) is a hero) equal to true

Action
Quest- Create required quest title YourQuest with description YourDescription
Quest- mark (last created quest) as discovered

Then you have trigger

Event
Unit- A unit enters region

Action
Mark (Last create quest) as Complete

Then you have another quest trigger.

How would you make it so that if the first quest was started then you start the other one, the second trigger would trigger for the first quest? Or does it already do that? :banghead: :banghead:

There are plenty of tutorials on variables, so you can look that up on how to create one, but here's the trigger:

Code:
Quest
    Events
        Unit - A unit enters a region
    Conditions
    Actions
        Quest - Create a Required quest titled <blah> with the description <blah>, using icon path ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\BTNAmbush.blp
        Set MyQuest = (Last created quest)
This will store the quest that is created as the variable MyQuest, so when you need to use it later, just use the variable.

What if the wait action is at the start of the trigger, and the "Last Created" is after a creation, but there are not waits after the creation?

That would work fine (forgot about this). Last Created Unit is set and, because there are no waits from then on, no other trigger can change it.

    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing

    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
