You can change this now in User CP.
This is my first Tutorial that I submitted so don't complain about my "Unadvanced" Guide. (PS: Possible that RoC does not have this triggers in existence)
If you cannot understand some descriptions in the tutorial because of grammar/spelling/any other things, then ask some people that can understand and can translate it into a more "Good English" way.
PS: Notice that this is just simple AI, (No Item System, Quite Stupid, Ranks [Insane, Normal, Easy] aren't applied, and some more features aren't added)

I. Some Things to Know About


1. Uses of AI Triggering

AI triggering is for advanced Artificial Intelligence to those maps which the AI Editor cannot be applied. Common genres that uses Triggered AI are AoS, Hero Arena, Hero Defense, RPG (Role Playing Game), etc. Other things that aren't included (Tags, TDs (Tower Defense), TWs (TowerWars), Maul, CD's (Castle Defense) but aren't purposed for Triggered AI is because that these kind of games is too long and these kind of genres cannot be practiced even with AI Players.


2. Difference of Triggered and AI Editor Scripts

Triggered AI shows more advanced mechanics on the Heroes and its the map makers choice on what he wants to do with the Artificial Intelligence. As of AI Scripts, it's mechanics is equal to every unit than just caring for the Hero. AI Scripts are most used in Melee and Campaign maps.




II. The Hero Triggers


1. Creating the Hero

First, we have to create the Hero for the AI, depending on the style of how to get the hero. Some styles are using a building to upgrade it to a hero, taverns and arenas. The following codes are at the bottom and you can see if it is for its style (this trigger also gives random heroes of choice)​

You can add some stuff like the ff. in the actions:
Actions
Player Group - Pick every Player in (All Players) and do Player - Make [Hero-Type] Unavailable for training/constructing for (Picked Player)
Game - Display to (All Players) the text: (Name of Player (#) + picked + [Name of your Hero]
Hero - Create [item] and give it to (Last Created Unit)


Code:
[I]Building Upgrade to Hero[/I]
    Events
        Time - Elapsed game time is [...] seconds
    Conditions
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player [#](color)[/U][/COLOR] controller) Equal to Computer
    Actions
        If (All Condition are true) then do (Actions) Else do (Else Actions)
            If - Conditions
                (Random integer between 1 and 2) Equal to 1
            Then - Actions
                Set AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] = ([COLOR="Red"][U]Building Of Player[#][/U][/COLOR])
                Unit - Order [[COLOR="Red"][U]Player [#]'s building[/U][/COLOR]] to train/upgrade to a [COLOR="Red"][U][desired hero][/U][/COLOR]
                [If you would like to add something here, then add it]
            Else - Actions
                Unit - Order [[COLOR="Red"][U]Player [#]'s building[/U][/COLOR]] to train/upgrade to a [[U][COLOR="Red"]desired hero[/COLOR][/U]]
                [If you would like to add something here, then add it]
Code:
[I]Hero Tavern[/I]
    Events
        Time - Elapsed game time is [...] seconds
    Conditions
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player [#](color)[/U][/COLOR] controller) Equal to Computer

        If (All Condition are true) then do (Actions) Else do (Else Actions)
            If - Conditions
                (Random integer between 1 and 2) Equal to 1
            Then - Actions
                Set Point = (Random Point of (Region))
                Unit - Create 1 [[COLOR="Red"][U]Hero[/U][/COLOR]] for [Player (#)] at [Point] facing [Default Facing Degrees]
                Custom Script: call RemoveLocation(udg_Point)
            Else - Actions
                Set Point = (Random Point of (Region))
                Unit - Create 1 [[COLOR="Red"][U]Hero[/U][/COLOR]] for [Player (#)] at [Point] facing [Default Facing Degrees]
                Custom Script - call RemoveLocation(udg_Point)
        Set AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] = (Last Created Unit)
Code:
[I]Hero Arena[/I]
    Events
        Time - Elapsed game time is [...] seconds
    Conditions
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player [#](color)[/U][/COLOR] controller) Equal to Computer
    Actions
        If (All Condition are true) then do (Actions) Else do (Else Actions)
             If - Conditions
                 (Random integer between 1 and 2) Equal to 1
             Then - Actions
                 Set BlaHeroLoc = (Random Point in ([COLOR="Red"][U]Region[/U][/COLOR]))
                 Unit - Order [[COLOR="Red"][U]Hero Picker of Player (#)[/U][/COLOR]] to Move to [BlaHeroLoc]
                 Custom Script - call RemoveLocation(udg_BlaHeroLoc)
             Else - Actions
                 Set BlaHeroLoc = (Random Point in ([COLOR="Red"][U]Region[/U][/COLOR]))
                 Unit - Order [[COLOR="Red"][U]Hero Picker of Player (#)[/U][/COLOR]] to Move to [BlaHeroLoc]
                 Custom Script - call RemoveLocation(udg_BlaHeroLoc)
Setting the Variable to the Arena.. Add these Actions

Code:
Actions
    [Add your Actions Here]
    If (Owner of (Entering Unit)) Equal to (Player[#]) and (Player[#] controller) Equal to Computer then do Set AIHero[Array#] = (Last Created Unit) else do Do Nothing

2. Learning and Using of Abilities
Now, what we need is a trigger that makes the Hero Artificial Intelligence to Learn Abilities and know when to use some abilities, especially the triggered ones. The order of learning of abilities is the best ability (Most Ultimate) to the Least Best (Attribute Bonus or the weakest ability). Even though the Ultimate has a level requirement, it means the AI will try to Learn the Ultimate first than the others, meaning, at level 6 or something, instead of learning the other abilities, the Hero will learn the Ultimate.​


Code:
[I]Learn Abilities[/I]
    Events
        Unit - A unit Gains a Level
    Conditions
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player [#](color)[/U][/COLOR] controller) Equal to Computer
        (Owner of (Leveling/Triggering Unit) Equal to [COLOR="Red"][U]Player [#](color)[/U][/COLOR]
    Actions
        Hero - Learn skill for (Leveling/Triggering Unit): [[COLOR="Red"][U]Strongest Ability/Ultimate of First Hero[/U][/COLOR]]
        Hero - Learn skill for (Leveling/Triggering Unit): [[COLOR="Red"][U]Strongest Ability/Ultimate of Second Hero[/U][/COLOR]]
        Hero - Learn skill for (Leveling/Triggering Unit): [[COLOR="Red"][U]Moderate Strong Ability of First Hero[/U][/COLOR]]
        Hero - Learn skill for (Leveling/Triggering Unit): [[COLOR="Red"][U]Moderate Strong Ability Second Hero[/U][/COLOR]]
        Hero - Learn skill for (Leveling/Triggering Unit): [[COLOR="Red"][U]Moderate Weak Ability of First Hero[/U][/COLOR]]
        Hero - Learn skill for (Leveling/Triggering Unit): [[COLOR="Red"][U]Moderate Weak Ability of Second Hero[/U][/COLOR]]
        Hero - Learn skill for (Leveling/Triggering Unit): [[COLOR="Red"][U]Weakest Ability of First Hero[/U][/COLOR]]
        Hero - Learn skill for (Leveling/Triggering Unit): [[COLOR="Red"][U]Weakest Ability of Second Hero[/U][/COLOR]]
You can also make the Hero randomly learn abilities with the If/Then/Else Actions. Also remember that this can choose 2 random heroes so you better put all of their abilities in.

*=Optional
Code:
[I]Usage of Abilities[/I]
    Events
        Time - Every 1 seconds of the game
    Conditions
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player [#](color)[/U][/COLOR] controller) Equal to Computer
    Actions
        Set VarUnitGroup = (Units within [[COLOR="Red"][U]distance[/U][/COLOR]] of (Position of (AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]]) matching (((Matching Unit) is Alive) Equal to True) and ((Matching Unit) belongs to an enemy of (Owner of (AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]])) Equal to True) and (((Matching Unit) is A Hero) Equal to True)
        Unit - Pick every unit in VarUnitGroup then do (Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            Loop - Actions
                If (All Condition are true) then do (Actions) Else do (Else Actions)
                    If - Conditions
                        (Integer((Life of (Picked Unit)))) Less than or Equal to [desired life]
                    Then - Actions
                        Set Point = (Position of (Picked Unit))
                        Unit - Order AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] to [[COLOR="Red"][U]Ability[/U][/COLOR]] [to (Picked Unit)/Point]
                        Custom Script - call DestroyGroup(udg_VarUnitGroup)
                        Custom Script - call DestroyGroup(udg_Point)
                    Else - Actions
                        Custom Script - call DestroyGroup(udg_VarUnitGroup)
                        Custom Script - call DestroyGroup(udg_Point)
I'm not quite sure about Custom Script, because the Variable is still going to be used again, so better use the other setting of the variable.



3. Attacking, Chasing and Retreating
Lastly, we need the AI Hero to farm, have intelligence to chase heroes and also intelligence when to retreat. There are many kinds of attacking depending on genres, there is lanes, arenas, defense. (Feature on defending base on AoS and Hero Defense Genre AI will be added soon)​

Code:
[I]Attacking - Lanes Part One[/I]
    Events
        Time - Every 1 seconds of the game
    Conditions
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#](color)[/U][/COLOR] controller) Equal to Computer
    Actions
        Set RandomLane[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] = (Random integer from 1 and 3)
        Unit Group - Pick every unit in [[COLOR="Red"][U]Base Region[/U][/COLOR]] and do (If (Percentage Life of (Picked Unit) Greater than or Equal to 85) and ((Owner of (Picked Unit)) Equal to ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#][/U][/COLOR])) then do (If RandomLane[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] Equal to 1) then do (Unit - Order (Picked Unit) to Attack - Move to (Center of [Mid Of Lane 1]) else do (If RandomLane[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] Equal to 2) then do (Unit - Order (Picked Unit) to Attack - Move to (Center of [Mid Of Lane 2]) else do (Unit - Order (Picked Unit) to Attack - Move to (Center of [Mid Of Lane 3])
        If RandomLane[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] Equal to 1 then do Turn On (Charging - After Locking - Lanes[1] Part One) else do Do Nothing
        If RandomLane[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] Equal to 1 then do Turn On (Attacking - After Casting Spells - Lanes[1] Part One)
        If RandomLane[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] Equal to 3 then do Turn On (Charging - After Locking - Lanes[3] Part One) else do Do Nothing
        If RandomLane[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] Equal to 3 then do Turn On (Attacking - After Casting Spells - Lanes[3] Part One)
We have to create a Integer Variable Lane Randomizer because using the "Chance" style will sometimes not work. You can find out whats the use of the Turn On triggers after reading Attacking.

Code:
[I]Attacking - Lanes Part Two[/I]
    Events
        Unit - A unit enters Mid Of Lane1
        Unit - A unit enters Mid Of Lane2
        Unit - A unit enters Mid Of Lane3
    Conditions
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#](color)[/U][/COLOR] controller) Equal to Computer
    Actions
        Set EnemyBase = (Center of (Enemy Base)
        Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units within 500 of Mid Of Lane1) and do (If ((Owner of (Picked Unit)) Equal to (Player[#]))) then do (Unit - Order (Picked Unit) to Attack - Move to (EnemyBase) else do Do Nothing
        Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units within 500 of Mid Of Lane2) and do (If ((Owner of (Picked Unit)) Equal to (Player[#]))) then do (Unit - Order (Picked Unit) to Attack - Move to (EnemyBase) else do Do Nothing
        Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units within 500 of Mid Of Lane3) and do (If ((Owner of (Picked Unit)) Equal to (Player[#]))) then do (Unit - Order (Picked Unit) to Attack - Move to (EnemyBase) else do Do Nothing
        Trigger - Turn On (Charging - After Locking - Lanes Part Two)
        Trigger - Turn On (Attacking - After Casting Spells - Lanes Part Two)
        Trigger - Turn Off (Attacking - After Casting Spells - Lanes[1] Part One)
        Trigger - Turn Off (Attacking - After Casting Spells - Lanes[3] Part One)
        Trigger - Turn Off (Charging - After Locking - Lanes[1] Part One)
        Trigger - Turn Off (Charging - After Locking - Lanes[3] Part One)
        Custom Script - call RemoveLocation(udg_EnemyBase)
An example of AoS Lane Attacking, this trigger has 3 lanes. Mid Of Lane is not a variable, it is a region. Put this region in the Middle of each lane.

Code:
[I]Attacking - Arena[/I]
    Events
        Time - Every 1 seconds of the game
    Conditions
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#](color)[/U][/COLOR] controller) Equal to Computer
    Actions
        Set RandomPointArena = (Random Point in (Arena Region))
        Unit Group - Pick Every Unit in [[COLOR="Red"][U]Fountain Spot for Player[#][/U][/COLOR]) and do (If (Percentage Life of (Picked Unit) Greater than or Equal to 85) and ((Owner of (Picked Unit) Equal to [COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#][/U][/COLOR]) then do Unit - Order AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] to Attack-Move to RandomPointArena else do Do Nothing
        Custom Script: call RemoveLocation(udg_RandomPointArena)
This is the most simplest Attacking Trigger for AI in Arena. I'm not sure if there are still many.

Code:
[I]Attacking - After Casting Spells - Lanes[1] Part One (Initially On)[/I]
    Events
        Unit - A unit Starts the Effect of an Ability
    Conditions
        (Owner of (Triggering Unit)) Equal to ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#](color)[/U][/COLOR])
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#](color)[/U][/COLOR] controller) Equal to Computer
    Actions
        Set MidLane[1] = (Center of (Mid Lane 1))
        Unit - Order (Triggering Unit) to Attack Move to (Mid of Lane1)
        Custom Script: call RemoveLocation(udg_MidLane[1])
Lane1 = West; Lane2 = Middle; Lane3 = East

Code:
[I]Attacking - After Casting Spells - Lanes[3] Part One (Initially On)[/I]
    Events
        Unit - A unit Starts the Effect of an Ability
    Conditions
        (Owner of (Triggering Unit)) Equal to ([U][COLOR="Red"]Player[#](color)[/COLOR][/U])
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#](color) controller[/U][/COLOR]) Equal to Computer
    Actions
        Set MidLane[3] = (Center of (Mid of Lane3)
        Unit - Order (Triggering Unit) to Attack Move to (Mid of Lane3)
        Custom Script: call RemoveLocation(udg_MidLane[3])
Lane1 = West; Lane2 = Middle; Lane3 = East

Code:
[I]Attacking - After Casting Spells - Lanes Part Two (Initially On)[/I]
    Events
        Unit - A unit Starts the Effect of an Ability
    Conditions
        (Owner of (Triggering Unit)) Equal to ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#](color)[/U][/COLOR])
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#](color)[/U][/COLOR] controller) Equal to Computer
    Actions
        Set EnemyBase = (Enemy Base Ragion)
        Unit - Order (Triggering Unit) to Attack Move to (EnemyBase)
        Custom Script: call RemoveRect(udg_EnemyBase)
Code:
[I]Charging - Lock Target[/I]
    Events
        Time - Every 1 seconds of the game
    Conditions
        (Player [#](color) controller) Equal to Computer

        Unit - Pick every unit in VarUnitGroup then do (Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            Loop - Actions
                If (All Condition are true) then do (Actions) Else do (Else Actions)
                    If - Conditions
                        (Integer((Life of (Picked Unit)))) Less than or Equal to [desired life]
                    Then - Actions
                        Set Target[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] = (Picked Unit)
                        Unit - Order AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] to Attack Target[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]]
                        Set VarUnitGroup = (Units in (Region(0.00, 0.00, 0.00, 0.00))
                        Custom Script: call DestroyGroup(udg_VarUnitGroup[Array#])
                     Else - Actions
                        Set VarUnitGroup = (Units in (Region(0.00, 0.00, 0.00, 0.00))
                        Custom Script: call DestroyGroup(udg_VarUnitGroup[Array#])
Code:
[I]Charging - After Locking - Arena[/I]
    Events
        Unit - A unit dies
    Conditions
        (Dying Unit) Equal to Target[Array#] or (Dying Unit) Equal to AIHero[Array#]
    Actions
        Set RandomPointArena = (Random Point of (Arena))
        Unit - Order (AIHero[[U][COLOR="Red"]Array#[/COLOR][/U]]) to Attack Move to (RandomPointArena)
        Custom Script: call RemoveLocation(udg_RandomPointArena)
Code:

    Events
        Unit - A unit dies
    Conditions
        (Dying Unit) Equal to Target[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] or (Dying Unit) Equal to AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]]
    Actions
        Set MidLane[1] = (Center of (Mid Of Lane1))
        Unit - Order (AIHero[COLOR="Red"][U][Array#[/U][/COLOR]]) to Attack Move to MidLane[1]
        Custom Script: call RemoveLocation(udg_MidLane[1])
Lane1 = West; Lane2 = Middle; Lane3 = East;

Code:

        Custom Script: call DestroyGroup(udg_VarUnitGroup)

4. Item System
The only thing we need now is to make the Hero AI buy items. I really can't explain more in here so I'm gonna skip the description.​

Code:
[I]Going Near Shops[/I]
    Events
        Player - Player[#]'s Current Gold becomes Greater than or Equal to [..]
    Conditions
        (Player[#](color) controller) Equal to Computer
    Actions
        Set ItemSpot = (Center of (Item Spot Region))
        Unit - Order AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] to Move to ItemSpot
        Custom Script: call RemoveLocation(udg_ItemSpot)
The Item Spot Region must be near a shop but is not in the Base Region. Remember that the AI will attack if he enters the Base Region.

Code:
[I]Buying Items[/I]
    Events
        Unit - A unit enters [Item Spot Region]
    Conditions
        (Owner of (Entering Unit)) Equal to ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#](color)[/U][/COLOR])
        ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#](color)[/U][/COLOR] controller) Equal to Computer
    Actions
        If (All Conditions are true) then do (Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            If - Conditions
                ([COLOR="Red"][U]Player[#](color)[/U][/COLOR]'s Current Gold) Greater than or Equal to [..]
            Then - Actions
                If (All Conditions are true) then do (Actions) else do (Else Actions)
                    If - Conditions
                        Or - Any conditions are true
                            (Item type of (Item type carried by AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] in slot 1) Equal to (Item Type of No Item)
                            (Item type of (Item type carried by AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] in slot 2) Equal to (Item Type of No Item)
                            (Item type of (Item type carried by AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] in slot 3) Equal to (Item Type of No Item)
                            (Item type of (Item type carried by AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] in slot 4) Equal to (Item Type of No Item)
                            (Item type of (Item type carried by AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] in slot 5) Equal to (Item Type of No Item)
                            (Item type of (Item type carried by AIHero[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] in slot 6) Equal to (Item Type of No Item)
                   Then - Actions
                       Item - Create [item] at [anywhere]
                       Set AIItem[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] = (Last Created Item)
                       Hero - Give AIItem[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] to AIHero[Array#]
                       Player - Add -[..] Current Gold to [U][COLOR="Red"]Player[#](color)[/COLOR][/U]
                       Turn Off (this trigger)
                       Turn On (Advanced Items 1/Selling Items)
                   Else - Actions
                       Do Nothing
            Else - Actions
                Do Nothing
You can also use random integers to make the hero choose from random items.

Code:
[I]Selling Items (Initially On)[/I]
    Actions
        [B]Item - Remove AIItem[[COLOR="Red"][U]Array#[/U][/COLOR]] from the game[/B]
        [B]Player - Add +[..] Current Gold to Player[#](color)[/B]
Add these actions to more Advanced items to replace older items for money

Thank you for reading this tutorial..

Code:
Updates:
 Added the Item System
 Removed Most/All Leaks

I only dont like 1 thing, u are using random number intrigers.

From my past expiriances (but this may be a bug) it is not working properly:

Lets say u run the map, and by triggers (for example):

Player 1 rolls intriger 2 and gets hero 2
Player 2 rolls intriger 8 and gets hero 8
Player 3 rolls intriger X and gets hero X

So whats the problem they are random u ask me?

Well than u press F10 E Q, than ok and start the map again

Player 1 will roll intriger 2 AGAIN and get hero 2
Player 2 will roll intriger 8 AGAIN and get hero 8
Player X will AGAIN ROLL THE SAME X INTRIGER, its not random at all, it is random to a single map but every time u run that map the players will get same heroes, it is boring.

First i thought it was my maps but than i downloaded DotA AI, and this happens all the same.

Every time i play( as a sentinel ) MY TWO ALLIES GET URSA AND SAND KING

intrigers are bad to me :(

PLEASE TRY IT AND INFORM ME IS THIS HAPPENING TO U TOO using PM

Well in my map it works.. It creates random heroes and also even if you restart it, sometimes it is the same, sometimes it isn't... Why would I give this tutorial if it doesn't work anyway?

EDIT: I'm going to do Item System tomorrow, I'm tired. Just ignore 3rd post.

Are you testing your map via world editor, cause in world editor the random numbers are always the same by default. You can turn this of under preferences I believe

Hy I have a pretty silly question:how can the computer tell the diference between the strongest ability and the weakest ability of a hero?Are they marked somehow within the unit ability editor?
 
General chit-chat

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, whatever. Thanks for listening guys
  • jonas jonas:
    Sure :) Let us know how it ends
  • Varine Varine:
    All of these things will end happily, they're just stressful. And I still lack many good friends that I can go to, and the ones I can are preoccupied with similar things. Thus general chit chat, cuz for some reason TH and Ghan and Tom all actively keep it up.
  • Varine Varine:
    Just gotta keep Miss Mazie up through the week until her shock wears off and she realizes that she still has family all around her, and bossman will do whatever he's going to do and I'll respond appropriately when it happens. Thank you all for the support, I do very much appreciate everyone being here for me through the years

  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Best of luck Varine!
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I just gotten myself an offer to work in China. The pay quadruples my current one. Damn.... Not really ready to start a new life there in China.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have heard that they pay pretty good to English teachers in China - you would be an expat
  • jonas jonas:
    Cool, what kind of job?
  • Accname Accname:
    I would be careful with jobs in China. They can be hit and miss depending on where in China you go. Places like hong kong / Shengzen / Beijing can be neat. Other places not so much.
  • Accname Accname:
    I would recommend searching for some first person experiences for the city you got the offer in. Especially now when the political situation in China is deteriorating.
  • jonas jonas:
    Accname, long time no see
  • jonas jonas:
    What have you been up to
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hey Accname, welcome back.
  • Accname Accname:
    Not much. Working in the Renewable Energy Sector as an IT Consultant. Its okay, but I think I preferred working at the university. It was more relaxed and you met all kinds of crazy people there.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I gotten a teaching position for Biology in a college in Wuhan (yes, there)... I suppose it should be fine there (I hope). Many of my ex colleagues are teaching in China as well currently (none in Wuhan though)
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    And I signed the contract already. I guess there's no turning back....
  • jonas jonas:
    @Accname how many hours do you work? I heard in some sectors IT consultants rack up insane hours
  • jonas jonas:
    @vypur85 sounds nice, have fun : )
  • Accname Accname:
    I am supposed to work 40 hrs a week, but I can work more if I like and I will be paid for those hours (as long as I don't go too far, there are laws and company policies, etc)
  • Accname Accname:
    In practice its basically work as much as you like, as long as the job gets done in time.
  • jonas jonas:
    Haha, my job is like that as well... that usually means I have a few 70-80 hours weeks a year, and lots of 20 hours weeks...
  • jonas jonas:
    a few weeks ago, one of my friends basically said "jonas, I received an invitation to submit something to conference X but I'm too lazy to do it and also the conference isn't advanced enough for my high level of research*, why don't you write something? Oh by the way, the deadline is in two weeks. Enjoy!" so I got two 80 hour weeks out of that kind offer. (*of course he didn't say those parts, but it's a better story this way)
  • jonas jonas:
    now I'll have next week off to make up for overtime :p and I'll play some good old gothic 2
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Hope you are enjoying that gothic 2~
  • jonas jonas:
    Heck yeah :cool: It's unfortunate that the game series wasn't generally well received outside of Europe, but it seems they want to remake Gothic 1 now. I'm very excited but also very scared at the same time. I hope they won't pull a reforged
