Better Triggers

This bundle is marked as pending. It has not been reviewed by a staff member yet.



Better Triggers is a custom, standalone trigger editor for Warcraft III: Reforged.

It expands with new features and aims to improve the overall user experience for both GUI users and scripters. To support the new features this editor does not bundle trigger data (.wtg) with your map, but saves the data in a project folder in your filesystem. This also means you cannot swap back and forth between this editor and the World Editor's trigger editor. Although, it is possible to port existing triggers from a map to this editor with the built-in 'Trigger Converter' tool.

Feature Highlights:

  • Source files outside your map
  • Port an existing map's triggers to Better Triggers
  • Script live update
  • "Starcraft II"-inspired GUI
  • 2D GUI arrays
  • Improved GUI to custom script conversion
