Heya guys,

I was playing around with the SC2 Editor and wanted to create a simple TD but have encountered some problems.

1) I've got a Probe as builder unit, I've set its speed to 10 and acceleration to 10, this works nice but under certain circumstances (Patrol between two near Points) my Probe just runs in circles around the target point and never reaches it (probably has something to do with turning radius).

2) I'm trying to allow my Probe to warp in Spine Crawlers, I've added the Mutate to Spine Crawler ability to the Probebuild ability, and added the button to the Command Card, where it shows up, but it doesn't show up ingame :eek:

3) I was playing around in the trigger editor and it somehow duplicated my include part in the Script which now causes the editor to show every entry in the menus twice, this is pretty annoying and I don't know how to edit the raw script file? (only how to view it)

4) I'm also not quite sure how to edit the columns in a Leaderboard, since when I sort it, I won't know where anythings is..

5) Also I can't find any tutorials (and the links in the stickied thread are down)


Thanks for your help

You should dublicate a warp-in-x-structure ability and set it to spine crawler. Even if you get Mutate to Spine Crawler to show, your probe would turn into one just like a drone does. And I don't think you want that.

3)
That's a known bug, but I don't know of any solution.. someone got this when he added campaign dependencies. If you did that I'd re-add them and see if it helps.
You can only edit the raw script by making a new Custom Script file (like a new trigger) and write stuff into it. E.g. you can View Script, copy the relevant parts and paste it into a custom script file.

Sc2Mapster probably has the largest tutorial repository you can find.

You can also ask your questions there if you can't get an answer here. There's a ton of good mappers.
*cough advertisement cough*

Can't help you with the rest :)

    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...

    I'm not so sure, there's still a lot of Thursday left for it to become unhappy.
