You can use regions and triggers so something like this :

Events: A unit Enters "YourRegion"
Condition: Entering Unit is Hero or whatever
Action: Move Entering Unit instantly to "YourRegion2"

Teleporter A --)> where A is name of region when you want to place the teleporter,if you dont have it create it with object editor
Teleporter B --)> same as A
Trigger:
  • Move to B
    • Events
      • Unit enter region A
    • Conditions
      • (Triggering unit) is a hero
      • check = true
      • Or what conditions you want
    • Actions
      • Set check = false
      • Set Move_point = (center of B)
      • Unit - Move (triggering unit) instantly to (Move_point)
      • Camera - Pan camer for (owner of (triggering unit)) to (Move_point) over 0 seconds
      • Selection - Select (triggering unit) for (owner of (triggering unit))
      • Custom Script : call RemoveLocation(udg_Move_point)
      • Set check = true

Trigger:
  • Move to A
    • Events
      • Unit enter region B
    • Conditions
      • (Triggering unit) is a hero
      • check = true
      • Or what conditions you want
    • Actions
      • Set check = false
      • Set Move_point = (center of A)
      • Unit - Move (triggering unit) instantly to (Move_point)
      • Camera - Pan camer for (owner of (triggering unit)) to (Move_point) over 0 seconds
      • Selection - Select (triggering unit) for (owner of (triggering unit))
      • Custom Script : call RemoveLocation(udg_Move_point)
      • Set check = true

@Ultimate: That won't work because the hero will get stuck going back and forth. you need to add in a boolean to check if hero has just arrived or not.

Or you need to move hero with offset so it doesn't actually enter region B/A

Also, it's not MUI. And adding the variable 'check' won't help in the way you have it there, since at the end of the trigger you set it to true. So the unit will still get stuck. You could use a buff given to the unit for 5 seconds, and add a condition to check the unit doesn't have that buff.

He didnt explain at all and maybe he just needs 1 point teleport so that wont be a problem, we waiting for a reply...

I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
please elaborate... is it a waygate that only works with specific types of units? or is it a teleporter item that summons a waygate? We need more specific question, generalization is not your friend my friend. :p

Smitty it was an example if he want to make it MUI or nor he can use array etc.The rest of work reserve to him.Here we help new user not make their work.This is the way how I learn in the past.Curiosity can lead to knowleadge.

Yeh, but the hero would still be bouncing constantly between the two points. I think the reason he asked for the trigger was to get the whole trigger. I agree it's best to try something first, spend at least a few hours trying to make it work and THEN asking for help, but still, I'm just saying, you still haven't fixed the problem of a hero getting stuck.

in that case just simply turn off the trigger just before u move him and turn it back on right after

It`s not bouncing look againg,the boolean value it`s settet again to true after hero has moved ..so the event of trigger B wont fire up becouse variable it`s still false when he enter in region.
I tell you that it`s work fine :p you could try if you dont belive me Smitty

I still can't test anything :/ but surely if the unit is in the region and you set check to true, it'll just be ported back?

Aaaaaand
*rereads the trigger*
*sees 'a unit ENTERS a region'*
*facepalms*

Didn't think of that...

My apologies, it should work fine :p

however it still would be more efficient to turn off the trigger, that way it doesn call any extra functions >.<

@1346610

I only need a 1-way teleporter you know...1way in, no way back

please elaborate... is it a waygate that only works with specific types of units? or is it a teleporter item that summons a waygate? We need more specific question, generalization is not your friend my friend. :p
@GFreak45

i need a teleporter that works with heroes only

you still didnt answer the entire question, but the methods shown should work if you tweak them a little bit

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
