That's what I feel like. First off, I would just like to say, I understand that people want to protect their maps. However, For those of us that can actually understand Staredit, it creates a dilemma. I say this only because if I see something that I find interesting, I may want to find out how it works. No, I'm not one of those people who sits there and gets frustrated at loosing Super Smash Bros, so I go in and change my unit's stats to make him invincible. I'm just saying, it's kinda hard for me to learn without being able to access the maps.

Ok, rant over...

What I really need to know is, Is there a way to put a cap on someone's minerals and gas? I am making an RPG (We all know the world needs more RPG's) and I am using gas as the "Mana" or "MP"...I am making to where players can add points into it to increase the max. However, I am also making "ethers" that can "regain the mana(gas)", but I dont want it going over the current max...
Any suggestions? They would be greatly appreciated!

Say your max "mana" at the time was 100
You conditions could be:

Player 1 accumulates at least 100 vespene gas

Actions:

Set player 1's vespene gas to 100
Preserve trigger

With this, whenever player 1 gets over 100 gas, the gas count is reset back to 100.
Even if he gets an ether item which adds 20 mana, and has 120 gas, it will set his mana back to 100 regardless.

To change the level of mana as the game goes on, say when you level up, simply use switches. Set a switch as level 1. For level one the max mana is 100 mana.

You would simply slip the "when switch 'Level 1' is set" into the conditions of the above trigger.

Then say level 2, the max mana was 125. When the character levels up, make sure to clear switch 'Level 1' and set 'Level 2'.

Then your trigger would look like this

Conditions:

Player 1 accumulates at least 125 vespene gas
'Level 2' is set

Actions:

Set player 1's vespene gas to 125
Preserve trigger

Hope you can make sense of all of that and it helps you out

    You would probably have to take a loan to get the Rice cert it is like 14l

    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.

    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
