Q1.
Trigger:
  • Unit - Order (Last created unit) to Attack-Move To (Center of (Playable map area))


Q2.
Make the building hostile to the attacking units, or order them to attack again after the ownership has changed.

nope, this just moves the Last created unit , not Last Created units
Q2.

i can't make the building hostile because it may change in attacker building and i don't know how to attack the target again...

Q1. Either send the unit off immediately after creating 1, then create another, or you could make a region where all the units are created, pick the units in the region and issue the order to picked units.

Q2. Set the building in a variable.

Question 1).
there are 2 options for you.
you can use a "unit group - issue order" action and issue the "last created unit group" to do something. this will leak if you do not use a unit group variable and a little line of jass to clean it, or you use an integer A iteration creating 1 unit after another for as often as you like and ordering the "last created unit" each time. the first action has the pros that the units would move in formation if they are less then 13.

by the way, you are leaking locations in your line, if you do not know what a "memory leak" is i suggest searching for it and reading some of the plenty turtorials about it.

Question 2).
if you order your units to attack-move to the location (though this might have drawbacks depending on your map concept) they will automatically attack enemy structures or units no matter whether they switched the owner or not.
another possibility is to store all units which target your structure (depending on how many structures of this kind there are you have 2 options here: if there is a limited amount of them you can index them and use unit groups with array, otherwise you would need to use hashtables) and when the owner of the structure is changed pick all units targeting this structure and re-order them to attack.

Make a loop within the loop you did?
Instead of your Integer A make Integer B and repeat it... something like:
Trigger:
  • For each (Integer A) from 1 to (Your Integer A), do (Actions)
    • Loop - Actions
      • For each (Integer B) from 1 to (bu[(Integer A)] / 2, do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Unit - Create 1 Footman for Player 1 (Red) at (Position of(Triggering unit)) facing Default building facing degrees
          • Unit - Order (Last created unit) to Attack-Move To (Center of (Playable map area))

Maybe? :D

    Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    A Levels is based on the UK syllabus offered internationally. So the syllabus is similar throughout different countries, taught in english.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I can't speak or write or read much chinese... Too difficult....... Which also makes my life here in china a lil difficult.

  • The Helper The Helper:
    I thought China had cracked down on having any foreign teachers?
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yeah I've heard of the news before. My school is still actively hiring foreign teachers. Not sure how things work now.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah it is hard to get reliable information about that kind of stuff
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but you are doing it so it is still doable
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I think it doesn't affect existing foreign teachers. Then again, its still weird that my school is hiring.
