Here's another DotA Spell made by me. Paralyzing Cask from Witch Doctor. How to implement this in your map inside.

Lagless: Yes
Leakless: Yes (I think)
MUI: Don't think so

Paralyzing Cask:
Vol'jin launches a cask of paralyzing powder that bounces between foes, stunning those affected for a short period of time (1 sec on Hero, 5 on creeps). Deals damage per bounce to non-hero units.

lol, the conditions are too long to be seen, its just has to be matching unit not equal to pc_target and it would be fine.

No. It won't hit only one unit, over and over again.

Also Thanks! But no. Cause if you put that only, you may stun your units or hero. They are just conditions..

Nice one! I see it might be used as other chain spell.

Thanks!

This is good.

Though you need to change the hotkey to a key that isn't the hotkey for
any of a unit's general orders (patrol, attack, stop, etc).

The spell also needs some more eyecandy IMO; it has no sound or effects
when the cask hits a unit - quite dry.

Also, "PC_Distance" doesn't appear to have been used at all in the code.

All else seems fine.

Thanks Tinki3. :D. I added the effect of the ability, has sound and effect. And also use the PC_Distance.

Fixed it and Update it!

Just wondering, would it be a bit simpler to do this...
Multiple triggers heh

Trigger one:
Map initiation, get all units, for each unit...
[Trigger] (Add event to trigger)
Add [(Picked unit) takes damage] to (DamageTrigger)
Make sure there are no leaks. I'm assuming that would be fairly common knowledge.

Trigger two:
unit enters (playable map area)
[Trigger] (Add event to trigger)
Add [(Entering unit) takes damage] to (DamageTrigger)
Make a condition, ((matching unit) is a (hero)) equal to (false)

Trigger three:
When you buy a hero,
[Trigger] (Add event to trigger)
Add [(Last created unit) takes damage] to (DamageTrigger)
or
Add [(Purchased unit) takes damage] to (DamageTrigger),
depending on how heros are purchased.
This is so that if heros are revived, you don't have it stacked.
So, now, there's a damage trigger.
So, when a unit takes damage, the condition being [level of (dummy storm bolt) for damage source is greater than or equal to 1),
pick one random unit in a 400 radius matching [(matching unit is alive), (matching unit is an enemy of owner of damage source), (matching unit is triggering unit equal to false).
Create a dummy unit to cast a storm bolt "paralyzing cask" on the picked unit. Add a special effect acid bomb on the targeted unit if needed, I'm not sure if it is.


I don't have WE open in front of me, a lot of the stuff i just put down might be just plain wrong.

    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
