Removing Doodads with Triggers?

Hey everyone,

I am trying to remove a doodad (w/ footprint) using triggers.

I can get rid of the actor model with:
Actor - Kill actor model (Actor for Foliage - Xil - [39.50, 139.50])
but how do I get rid of the foot print?
Thanks

I'm not sure if this can be done, but instead of doing it with a doodad, you could use a unit with the footprint, making it neutral, unselectable, undetectable, and have no minimap icon.

How do I attach an actor to a unit?!
So I made it a unit and now I am trying to attach the actor to the unit.

I went to the actor then events and added

UnitBirth.Foilage
- Create XilFoilage(Actor)

I get this error
Unable to create unit actor. Creating fallback sphere unit.

I have looked around for tutorials but couldn't find a good one.
How do I attach an actor to a unit?!

Thanks

Basically, you have to make sure that the actor is a unit actor and in the top of the list of fields, you should be able to set the unit that it links to.

As a matter of fact, you CAN remove doodads by trigger (remove doodads in region)

I've faced the same problem a time ago, and I've seen you CAN'T remove footprints but doodads are surely possible to remove


(I tried to open a gate by removing the doodads but the footprint wont wouldn't work at all)

Yea It seems really silly that we can't remove footprints. I need to learn how to create unit and start working with actor more.

Thanks everyone I am going to start working on making the unit

assign an actor to a unit to create the next event in an actor:

event: unit birth (your unit)
action: create

you must also create an event that destroys the unit when is has killed

    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Blizzard is watered down now hopefully they can pull it together
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they got a server engineer job opening :)
