               Avalanche

                 v.0.1

========================================


This spell uses indexing two times
One loop for the channeling stuff and the spawning of the stones
And another loop to make the stones fly down, bounce, etc.

If you don't understand everything visit the hiveworkshop
There is a good tutorial section
Some of these things as MUI/Indexing is explained by some spells in the spell section, too
How to detect trees? - Look at my signature

If that didn't help you feel free to ask in the corresponding thread

Instructions:
-Don't modify the human worker
1. Copy all abilitys
2. Copy the Dummy
3. Copy the triggers

A lot of spell data is stored in the ability "Avalanche Stun" so you should watch at it closely
It is not recommended to modify anything but the things with comments unless you know what you are doing of cause

Well, what can i say? bravo :p 5/5

also make sure to make the sfx on the units loc isntead of himself, cus it looks fake when hes moving and he calls upon the pebbles to fall :p

i prob will have more suggestions but, here is one, use Sin() and Cos() isntead of SinBJ or CosBJ, kk good spell gotta go now >_<

the height could be set into a different variable like a parabola wise, else this looks quite could except as Paladon made a likely one and also wont it be possible to have the two loops into one ?

didn't know about paladons but I bet mine is better somehow xD

but I forgot the page where I looked it up back then (switched to Windows 7 and forgot to backup my bookmarks x)

you can set the height of cause

and it would be possible to combine the loops but I'd need dynamic 2D-Arrays (I won't use hashtables since they are slow) or a fixed 2D-Array with a big size likely to the way I did with my hook spell
imho this is the best way but it is a matter of taste I think

imho it does not make any difference if I call

SinBJ(angle)
or
Sin(angle*bj_DEGTORAD)

the sfx on the caster is created by the spell itself
however I should consider to change it or trigger it

thanks this far

edit: checked out paladons spell and I have to say I have seen it before ... I just forgot about it xD
however it uses at least 3 times as many variables as I do and it destroys bridges, traps, elevators and stuff like that
the splitt thing is interesting but since my stones fall from above the screen there is no need for fading
and mine is channeling, too
I'll think about something to make it more unique but I have to write a testpaper tomorow so I won't do it today x)

edit: done
greetings @ Paladon xD

Bet accepted.

Guess why.
I have a huge settings panel in the very beginning.
Users, who have no idea for spell triggering won't be able to edit your spell to their needs.
[...]

Whatever, the spells are different and i don't care at all.

Oh, i just found a effect related bug.
Try to cast the spell and order the hero to move while he's channeling.

I guess i just won the bet.

The spell is not channeling, try it out.
Also its very laggy if the spell is casting 3-4x in the same time or very close in a row.

But the spell looks very nice!!

of cause I tried out the spell before uploading and it worked fine

Also its very laggy if the spell is casting 3-4x in the same time or very close in a row.

this is a testmap to show that the spell will even work with many many stones
you should downscale the number for your map of cause

But the spell looks very nice!!

thanks :grin:

Couldn't you just make rain of fire use rocks instead of fire rocks?

no 'cause:
-the cause of the comets falling down is the model, not the spell
-they move down with a static speed and don't become faster while falling
-they don't split
-it does not stun
