Random Region for Findable Unit Spawn


New Member
I am trying to make it so that a specific hero will spawn for any player that sends a hero type unit they already own into a certain region first. But I actually have 7 regions and I want to make it random as to which one he will actually spawn at and I want them all on a random timer for when he could first be available at. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Make a region array, and put the regions into that array. Make a timer with a random real inside. (Turn it into a global variable so the second trigger will recognise it. Dont use "last created timer".) Then in the second trigger, when the timer elapses, select a region at random from your array and then create your hero.


Global Variable [Region]: RegionArray[size 7]
Global Variable [Timer]: RandomTimer
Global Variable [Unit] : HeroEnteringRegion

TRIGGER ONE (The Setup!)
Event: When <HERO> enters [REGION 1]
When <HERO> enteres [REGION 2] (List them all as seperate events. The events wont recognise the variable.)​
Actions: RegionArray[1] = <YOUR REGION>
Region Array [2] = <YOUR REGION> (Continue this for the other regions.)
Start Timer as One Shot Timer that expires in (Random real between X and Y) seconds.
RandomTimer = Last Created Timer
HeroEnteringRegion = Triggering Unit​

TRIGGER TWO (The Action!)
Event: RandomTimer expires
Action: Create one [HeroEnteringRegion] at RegionArray[Random Integer between 0 and 7] (etc...)​

    I really do not want to move to California otherwise I might consider it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah California is not anywhere you really want to live
  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is why I did not take the job Blizzard offered me back in the day, there is no way I could have moved my family there on what they were offering, not even close and that was like 20 years ago
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah they wanted me on the tech support team when they did not get me they got one of the next MVPs in Dinobot
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot was one of the youngest of the MVPs tkron probably could have worked for Blizzard but he had a good job in Chicago doing business programming already
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot probably still works for Blizzard would love to reconnect with that guy

    lol I live in CA
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    I've got some friends in animation department who have been applying for Blizzard, doing interviews and such. They said the workplace seems nice, though now it'd be all remote work I suppose
  • The Helper The Helper:
    good for them I live close to Austin and am trying to get my kids interested in getting into Games but not having much luck. I would never let them move to Cali.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    unless it was huge money
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and even then with the taxes I really could never let them move there
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    Haha fair enough, I have no interest in CA at all as a living place either. Really only here just for the work in LA, but hopefully once I get settled enough in my work, I can move out
