Question on Inter-map Communication

Hi everyone,

I am recently creating a custom campaign. I've just finished the first map. Now I want the player to move on the the second map. The problem I have is I've defined a lot of variables storing the properties of my player in the first map, now I want to transfer it all to the second map. Is there a way to save variables in a file or something? And then when the second map initializes, it would read all the variables and set the values accordingly.

Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't used them myself yet, but I believe banks is what will help you with this task. Both maps can use the same bank if I'm not mistaken.

May I ask you how you are able to jump from one map to another? Everything I tested in that area just ended the game.

Yes, banks are what you can use. You can open a bank with a certain name, store your units/variables in there (and save the bank) and then retrieve them by opening the same bank in your other map.

You can't store the variable itself, but only the value. So in the end it'd look like this:

JASS:

  Load Bank named "MyBankName"
  Set MyBank = last created bank

  Store unit MyHero with key "hero" in MyBank
  Store integer MyGoldAmount with key "gold" in MyBank

  Save bank MyBank


JASS:

  Load Bank named "MyBankName"
  Set MyBank = last created bank

  Set MyHeroInMission2 = key "hero" from MyBank
  Set MyGoldInMission2 = key "gold" from MyBank


There's some nice video tutorials on banks in mapster:

Builder Bob, your question is that exact question that I was going to ask.

So everyone, any ideas how to jump from one map to another?

    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

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
