Siege units with a cargo hold

Hey Guys

In my new map, I have made several siege units. They all have cargo hold, but there are some special reasons for this...

I want to make my siege units unable to attack unless 3 ENGINEERS are in their cargo hold, and make them unable to store any other units.

This needs triggers i know, but I have no idea which, and it needs to be MUI, there will be more than 1 siege unit in the game at any time.
Thank you!!!

I don't know if this is actually possible, but you could make regions, which are constantly moved to the positions of the siege units, and when a unit enters this region, you add 1 to a variable, and when they leave, you take 1 away from the variable

Well I think I've figured out a way to do it...

Events
Unit - A unit Is loaded into a transport
Conditions
Actions
Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units within 20.00 of (Position of (Triggering unit))) and do (Actions)
Loop - Actions
If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
If - Conditions
(Unit-type of (Picked unit)) Equal to Siege Engine
(Owner of (Picked unit)) Equal owner of triggering unit
Then - Actions
Unit - Set the custom value of (Picked unit) to ((Custom value of (Picked unit)) + 1)
Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units of type Siege Engine) and do (Actions)
Loop - Actions
If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
If - Conditions
(Custom value of (Picked unit)) Equal to 3
Then - Actions
**Do whatever you wanted to do**
Else - Actions

I haven't tried it tho..
I don't know if you need to increase or decrease the range at which the units are picked.

Why don't you make it work the same way burrows work? It'd enable only a specific unit type to enter and gives an attack if some are inside, each one inside also gives increased attack speed.

Play around with the battle stations ability, because that's the only ability that can only load specific units.

Or the goblin zepplin's "Cargo Hold" ability. What you should do is give the tank the "cargo hold" ability. You will need to have FIVE triggers for this.

1) A trigger to prevent tanks from doing anything once they are created.
2) A trigger to distinguish Engineers from other units (I suggest a Unit Group variable.)
3) A trigger to prevent non-Engineer units from activating the tanks.
4) A trigger to activate the tanks once three Engineers are in the cargo hold.
5) A trigger to DEACTIVATE the tanks once there are no longer three engineers in them.

I'm assuming you can figure out the actual triggers by yourself...?

thanks guys! That helped a lot. Yes, I hope I can figure them out myself, I'm not all that shabby with triggers :)

Plus rep!!

    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
