so, ben having problem whit an aura of one of my units for my swamp team arena.

easy way of solving what i whana do is reading the tooltip of it.
swamp team arena said:
Nearby friendly melee units gain 1-9%(+1% a level) of ther damage dealt back in mana points when they hit enemy units.

i worked whit this about 1 year ago but irl came in the way so i had to pause the making of his map, but now im back (i hope!) and i remeber the braindamage this dam aura gave me! any ideas of how to do it?

changes might be okay, like changing it to a static amount, or whatever.

first of all, you have to use a damage detection system no matter what you do.
this system will notice if any unit is taking damage.

now you check whether the damage source (attacking unit) has your ability, if so the next step would be to heal a percentage of the damage taken as mana of the damage source. that should be no problem for anybody who knows a little bit about triggering. if you still need help just say so.

(there is a GUI friendly damage detection system in the turtorial sub-forum)

Use a damage detection system as Accname suggested. Then, since it's an aura, you could just detect if GDD_DamageSource has buff (Your Aura) and then refund a percentage of DamageAmount as mana.

Have you noticed that in White Level spir aura you say the text only to Red? Even though you check if any of the players level the ability.

Oh and a handy note, for a unit takes damage event, use "Damage Source" to detect the attacking unit.

    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air

    I bitch about Xenforo sometimes but it really is full featured you just have to really know what you are doing to get the most out of it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is just not easy to fix styles and customize but it definitely can be done
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do know this - xenforo dropped the ball by not keeping the vbulletin reputation comments as a feature. The loss of the Reputation comments data when we switched to Xenforo really was the death knell for the site when it came to all the users that left. I know I missed it so much and I got way less interested in the site when that feature was gone and I run the site.
