Hey Guys

I'm stuck here... I want my unit (when it casts the custom ability stealth based off wind walk) to become invisible until the ability ends, or it attacks. I know its only possible with triggers.

Here is my trigger, but it doesn't work (the 20 secs is the duration of windwalk)
Code:
invisibility
    Events
        Unit - A unit Begins casting an ability
    Conditions
        (Ability being cast) Equal to Stealth 
    Actions
        Unit - Add Permanent Invisibility to (Triggering unit)
        Wait 20.00 seconds
        Unit - Remove Permanent Invisibility from (Triggering unit)


Can somebody tell me how to do this in another way, or fix this trigger?
Thanks!!

I assume you want to make a windwalk without the ability to pass through units? Otherwise you'd just use regular windwalk, I guess. Maybe make a dummy unit that casts an ability based on the sorceress' invisibility on your stealthing unit?

problem, i don't want my unit to lose its invisibility if it casts an ability.
I know wind walk can do all this though.

Unit starts Cloak:
Create a dummy unit with Frost Armor. Frost Armor the target. Frost Armor lasts 20 seconds. It doesn't do anything, maybe just adds an interesting art. Like the Vengeance Sphere or Tornado Spin. Create a 20 second timer.

Second trigger!
Unit casts an ability.
Unit has buff Frost Armor.
Create a dummy unit with Invis, with 20 levels of it. Set the level of ability of Invis to the remaining seconds in the timer. Level 1 is a 1 second invis, Level 2 is a 2 second invis, and so on.
Order the dummy unit to Invis the triggering unit.

The problem with this:
It's not MUI.
I didn't explicitly state the code. Laziness is my failure.

Make a dummy unit cast sorceresses invisibility that lasts 20 seconds on him? Not sure if that would do it or not..

Just add permanent invisibility to a unit then remove it after <blank> seconds..

Another thing, base the spell on Channel (customize it), not Wind Walk..

Events
- Unit - A unit Starts the Effect of an Ability
Conditions
- Ability being cast equal to (your spell)
Actions
- Unit - Add Permanent Invisibility to (Triggering unit)
- Wait 20.00 seconds
- Unit - Remove Permanent Invisibility from (Triggering unit)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you said the exact same thing that he said didn't work...

Begins casting and Starts the Effect of an ability are 2 different things...

    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
