enough people can code now a days, that i think its a lots less about what you script, and more about the idea and how its implemented - which I have never been top notch in doing - and if you look at the history- spell contest 2 I did not even place, and spell contest 3 I scored 2nd

> wish the theme were a bit more narrow however, almost like walking into a department store and saying "Pick a shirt", w/o knowing who you are buying for - just a bit overwhelming with respect for the possibilities
Others say the complete opposite. :p

> Would it be acceptable if a unit hammered a mine into the floor?
...Self destruct?

> Aww sh*t, good game guys, emjlr3 is doing it.

> You can still join this? I'm probably in.
Yes, you can. You still have 10 days.

thats about the extent of it - posting too much more might give it away entirely

It'll do. It's not quite what I was thinking when I meant physical, but I don't want to disqualify anyone over a misunderstanding.

When I thought of it, the idea was so funny I just felt like making it. Physical Abilities for me is too vague. And too limited.

I can see most of the submissions going a similar way, the "multistrike" alike abilities are coming.

Nice that the spell bugs with almost an hour left. Stupid JASS, why won't it compile right.

EDIT:

Oh yes I found it, stupid radians.

EDIT2:

Nope not the radians.

EDIT3:

Seems that I'm out of the contest. The bug just won't go away. It's a movement that will not work and it's pretty essential to the whole spell.

Well I can atleast post my idea.

Calls for an airstrike from above. After 3 seconds of channeling, an airplane will travel across the sky, releasing its fury at random spots at the ground below dealing damage to nearby enemies. When an enemy is strucked by a projectile, the unit will have reduced armor for a short period of time.
Each projectile has an aoe of 85.
The total aoe of targeting is 400 around the airplane.
The airplane travles for 800 units.

Level 1 - 65 damage each projectile. -1 armor reduction. 15 projectiles.
Level 2 - 75 damage each projectile. -2 armor reduction. 30 projectiles.
Level 3 - 85 damage each projectile. -3 armor reduction. 45 projectiles.
Level 4 - 95 damage each projectile. -4 armor reduction. 60 projectiles.

baassee upload it, or put the code in JASS thread, we'd be happy to help. Btw, its not against the rules to do that.

but i think the concept of calling an airplane is not within the theme of a "physical" spell. will be disqualified i guess.

Merely thought so. But I thought these hooks, swords, jumps, hits were too old school :p

    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

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
