How can I create a trigger that will stop unit spawn after reaching a certain amount of food? I don't want the region spawn to stop creating units forever, I want the region spawn to create sufficient units to fill up whatever food limit I set it to and fill up the empty food remaining. Any help will be greatly appreciated! :thumbs_up:

every x seconds
if player x food used less than y
then create unit

I tried that and it doesn't work :( This the trigger I have:'
Events
Time - Every 40.00 seconds of game time
Conditions
Actions
Player Group - Pick every player in Player Group - Player 12 (Brown) and do (Actions)
Loop - Actions
Set PlayerBrown = Player Group - Player 12 (Brown)
If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
If - Conditions
(Player 12 Brown) Food used) Less than 45
Then - Actions
Unit - Create 10 Alien Grunt for Player (Brown at (Center of Second Entrance <gen>) facing Default building facing degrees.
Unit - Create 3 Aliens for Player (Brown at (Center of Second Entrance <gen>) facing Default building facing degrees.
Else - Actions
Do nothing

They don't stop spawning. They keep spawning over the limit :/

This works fine for me.

    • Events
      • Time - Every 1.00 seconds of game time
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Game - Display to (All players) for 1.00 seconds the text: (String((Player 9 (Gray) Food used)))
      • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
        • If - Conditions
          • (Player 9 (Gray) Food used) Less than 8
        • Then - Actions
          • Unit - Create 1 Footman for Player 9 (Gray) at (Random point in Region 004 Copy Copy <gen>) facing Default building facing degrees
        • Else - Actions
CroMoX is correct, you're looping through all players, and if any player has les than 45 food used, it creates the units for P12.

It has to do with the condition, since you are doing a loop you have to use picked players food is less than 45

I actually got the loop trigger from some thread in the hive similar to this thread in hopes that it worked but it didn't. So would it be better if I delete this trigger and start a new one? I'm just trying to find the easiest trigger for this to work
