Spell Request thread.


So i have some free time and decided to help out others with my coding.

-Only vJass programming, make sure you have the latest version of NewGen in your map
-I don't provide or use custom models, that part is up to you
-All posts must follow this template

Special Effects:[/noparse]

Inside the desciption field be as descriptive as possible
Inside the level field tell me how the ability's level increases it's performance
Inside the special effect field tell me which wc3 effects you want to use for this spell.

-Report inconvenient through PMs, i don't want to fill this thread with complains

List of libraries i would commonly use in my coding
AIDS (not recommended)
UnitIndexer (recommended)
Damage Struct
TimerUtils (Mag's version)

Libraries i WONT use
J4L's Event

If you wish the spell to use a custom library please notify me.
Please be as specific as possible when it comes to describe your spell. I have no idea of what's on your mind so better tell me what is it you want.


I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
are you open to creating complex algorithsms?

because i have a really cool fractal idea for a special effect... i dont have a spell for it but im sure you could think of something based on the design :p

i would know how to create the design, but it would need a lotta work for u if you were open to it :/

basically did you want really awesome complex spells or just kinda cool get the job done spells


I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
to what degree would you be open to, every layer will add lag and prettyness varying directly :p

the formula would be something like this...
starting at the point at the very top of the koch snowflake (the point at the top)
it would set the next point = (side length of the base triangle/3^D (Dimension)) points in the 240* direction
then you would change the direction set with this pattern
+60, -120, +60, +60, +60, -120, +60, -120, +60, -120, +60, +60, +60 in an endless loop like that...
then when the point becomes equal to point 1 end stop the loop and create a special effect every X points between each point to display it :)


I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
ok here is a pic of what it will look like with each dimension from 0-5:

kochs snowflake.gif

where the total ammount of points on the pic will be = 3 x 4^D (ie: D,P (Dimension,Point Count): (0,3),(1,12),(2,48),(3,192) there is where it gets pretty steep)

i would recommend going with 2 or 3 depending on how pretty u want it and how much lag you are open to, i wouldnt recommend this be a spammer lol...

i will create a GUI version of this this weekend and see if you like it, then you could recreate it with jass, i will make it customizeable though

Skill info
Name: Darkness eye
Description: Ancient evil ability to reveal hidden humans around the world
Levels: 3
Special Effects: Bats flying around area of reveal
/ This skills is for vampire in Vampirism Frozen World. When it's being used, vampires will be available to see part of map (depends of lvl of skill, lvl 1 - about 2500 range, lvl 2 - about 4000 range, lvl 3 about 7000 range
Graphic effects: Visually, it must be looking like bats flying in that area which has been revealed.
If need more info - feel free to ask :)


If need more info - feel free to ask
I need to know a few things about your ability
-Is it like a far sight ability? or the area revealed is the area around the caster?
-I think your ability doesn't require triggering at all, you can have the hero cast far sight at a target location and create a dummy there with a modified version of "Locust Swarm" that spawns bats that deal no damage.

- It's like far sight ability
- It's must be like far sight, but effect of it must be bats around the area which is being revealed.

I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
just a quick question since i havent gotten into jass much:

i can run this by using: call StartThread(function snowflake)
if its named snowflake in my map of course


If you're trying to run it through a GUI trigger you can just go with call Snowflake.create(arguments)
What are you trying to do with it? It would be a lot better if you just tell me and i would code the spell


I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
i was just planning to use it as an effect that i could put at a point or on a unit

    I think you can still run the original game, just there's a chance your map won't work with the newer patches
