Random is not random

SOLVED

I have a region on top of a Circle of Power. When the player moves his Wisp onto the circle a random hero is supposed to spawn in a nearby region.

Trigger 1.

Trigger:
  • Set Agility
    • Events
      • Map initialization
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set HeroAgi[1] = Naga Sea Witch
      • Set HeroAgi[2] = Naga Sea Witch
      • Set HeroAgi[3] = Naga Sea Witch
      • Set HeroAgi[4] = Naga Sea Witch
      • Set HeroAgi[5] = Naga Sea Witch
      • Set HeroAgi[6] = Naga Sea Witch
      • Set HeroAgi[7] = Naga Sea Witch
      • Set HeroAgi[8] = Naga Sea Witch
      • Set HeroAgi[9] = Naga Sea Witch
      • Set HeroAgi[10] = Naga Sea Witch


The name is the same because the units are made from the same hero. Every number from 1-10 has been assigned to a unit different from the others. The name will be changed at the very end, because it's much easier to keep track of the units this way.

Trigger 2.

Trigger:
  • Pick Agility
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit enters Pick Agility <gen>
    • Conditions
      • (Unit-type of (Entering unit)) Equal to Wisp
    • Actions
      • Unit - Remove (Entering unit) from the game
      • Unit - Create 1 HeroAgi[(Random integer number between 1 and 10)] for (Owner of (Entering unit)) at (Center of Choose Passive <gen>) facing Default building facing degrees


This is where the random unit will be created BUT. For some reason the game always picks the number 7, and thus the same unit will always spawn.

What's wrong?

This will never happen in multiplayer, but if you want to test your map with random values go to preferences>testmap>fixed random seed and uncheck it

Hm just tried this but the same thing happens. Number 7 is always chosen.

Edit: I may add, that these triggers have actually worked. But when I moved the entering region and changed the spawn region to another spawn region this happened.

As Dirac said, unticking the "Use Fixed Seed" should give you a different result every time.

Alternatively you can add the units to a group and create 1 random unit from group.

And you could try 1 more thing, Set TempInt = random number 1-10. and Create Hero[TempInt]. Don't know if that would make a diference

If you're using a temp variable you can have a 'Text Message' to see if it's actually coming up 7 every time.
You should really have different names for the units, even if you just put something in Editor Suffix so that it doesn't appear in game.
(Use Fixed Random Seed makes no sense to me. It just sends users off looking for workarounds to bugs that don't exist in the first place.)

UPDATE

This very same trigger works in multiplayer. Where it fails to pick a random hero in "Test Map" it succeeds in, at least, lan games.

    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!
