    Looking for Beta Testers

    I've spent about 5 years developing a map called "Black Winter" it's gone through thousands of builds, according to World Editor I'm on build 6059 just on this particular version. It's been canned, resurrected, canned and resurrected again about 4 or 5 times, and it's finally at the point where...

    [Trigger] Optimize My Triggers?

    This might be better suited to Requests, but I'm not sure. Basically I've done a large portion of work on a squad system where, the members of the squad are locusted and cannot be selected, this of course removes their health bars and makes it difficult to decipher how much health is left in...

    Killing a Unit w Triggers

    I want to kill a unit with a function but be able to set a killing unit that can be referenced. The normal GUI function to kill a unit would work if it returned a killing unit. Is it possible to do this with custom script?

    [Trigger] Relative Movement for Squads

    Alright so, this is kind of awkward to explain, so let me give you a picture. I've got a bunch of units in my map that are locusted and/or won't hold formation for whatever reason (also won't hold formation when you attack move) and I want them to, instead of clump in a single point, surround...

    SFX no longer visible

    Special Effect - Create a special effect at (Position of (Triggering unit)) using war3mapImported\NewDirtEXNofire.mdx This doesn't do anything. Using TempLoc for the location also doesn't do anything. However attaching it to a unit still shows the special effect. Excuse my language but what...

    Damage in a Narrow Straight Line?

    How would I do this, hypothetically, using any method from pure triggering, to a dummy caster using abilities. I want the damage to be dealt instantly which is obviously not how crushing wave and carrion swarm work. Using a dummy caster also seems to cause problems with angles and whatnot (the...

    Armor Ignoring Attacks

    This seems like it should be simple but I'm not sure where to begin. I have a DDS in my map and what I want to do is, when certain units take damage from other certain units, I simply want to ignore their armor value (not armor type), for example a unit could have 12 armor points and that could...

    [Trigger] Specific Simple Immunity

    How can I make units resistant to very specific things without making them resistant to others. Ex. How can I make a squad immune to slow or poison, but not immune to magic in general. This is an extremely broad question but I haven't been able to think of a way to do it yet. I have...

    [Trigger] How Do I Make This More Efficient?

    Save/Load Alternatives

    I'm working on a major release, with a whole slew of new features implemented into warcraft 3, but it currently has an archaic save/load system based on typing -save, writing down a code on screen and typing -load (your numbers here) to load the code in a future match.

    Pathing Problems

    [General] Custom Tags w/o Lag

    So I was thinking, warcraft 3 has so few tags that can be detected, i.e., mechanical, ancient, suicidal, undead, organic, etc. I was wondering if through a DDS we could expand on this by using dummy abilites, like an invisible ability called "Light" which would classify a unit as light, and...
