[Solved] Floating Text showing harvested amount

Hey there,

Getting straight to the point, i have found a trigger that has been used on another map to show the amount being harvested by the probe ( Like in your Sc2 arcade games "MineralZ") However, when i use this trigger on my map it wont show how much is being harvested, it shows +0 and wont change, although the text and colour work just fine.

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!

The reason it shows 0, is that when the unit drops off the cargo, it no longer carries anything (it carries 0).

What you could do, would be to use an actor, just like it's done with those mineral cashes from the campain.
Then you would need to have some dummy effects, to determine which type of resource is being carried.

Thanks, i had a look around another map and found an actor that looks like its related to it, it looks like a big pain in the ass but ill keep playing with it, thanks for shoving me in the right direction

It really is pretty simple, just take a look at the effect, and basically copy the actor it uses, then you just change the text displayed :)

I've looked up a mineral pallet as a reference, and it's just confused me. I can see that when the pick up minerals effect happens, it creates the actor containing text for 3 seconds, but in my case i don't know how to start. It's confusing me because i don't understand how triggers play a part in it, would it be too much to ask for a little walkthrough?


*Edit, if it helps at all, the map i'm using as a reference is named "MineralZ Easy" you can open it if you search for the mod/map name on Americas servers

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    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.
