I'm getting tired of finding people using old, broken versions of these triggers. If you won't approve it because its mostly blizzard-coding at least do it for its usefulness in the techtree contests.

    We have come to the conclusion that this will be approved.

    It's a huge improvement.

    For example,
    call PickMeleeAI(indexPlayer, udg_AM_AI_FilePath[indexRace], null, null)

    runs about 10 lines of code, but it could simply be replaced with 1 line:
    call StartMeleeAI(indexPlayer, udg_AM_AI_FilePath[indexRace])


    Getting rid of the BJs will allow you to produce cleaner and faster code.

    The function that gets the nearest gold mine can be replaced with a FirstOfGroup loop enum.

    You would call GroupEnumUnitsInRange(enumGroup, x, y, 2000, null)
    And loop over all the units like this:

    Code (vJASS):
    loop
        set tempUnit = FirstOfGroup(enumGroup)
        exitwhen tempUnit == null
        call GroupRemoveUnit(enumGroup, tempUnit)

        if GetUnitTypeId(tempUnit) == 'ngol' then
            // do actions here.
            // you would just get the distance and check if it's less
            // than the current distance you stored. If so, set the
            // nearestMine variable to tempUnit.
        endif
    endloop
    // At this point, nearestMine will be equal to the nearest
    // mine.


    There are so many things you could do to improve this.

    Bribe: I don't like that this resource is 99% copied code from Blizzard.j.

    To me this would be better as a tutorial, since it's not very configurable in its current state either.

    I don't think any amount of work you put into this is going to make me feel good about approving it. I don't get the feeling like this is an appropriate resource for us, and it is a difficult decision for me to decide what to do with it.

    As Bribe said, I also do not know whether this should be approved or not, but for the time being, it would be better to improve it.
    First, you can get rid of the remaining BJs.

    edit
    Also, merge lines like this:

    Code (vJASS):
    local integer index
    set index = 1

    ->
    local integer index = 1

    Test...now

    The idea is very good, Allows the user to easily create new races and mess around with the old ones.
    Haven't checked triggering yet.

    does the basic AI work for this or you need to make custom AI for the custom races?

    Thanks. I like it. I created a lot of custom races, but i don't know anything about triggers. So, i always had to change the player slot to change the race.

    But why only 8 races?

    There are Humans, Orcs, Undead, Night Elf, and 4 more races.

    That's not enough, at least for me.

    I have 16 custom races, and want to make more 4.

    One other problem:

    The first hero is free, but only the first altar hero has supposed to be free. Not the first Tavern hero.

    Custom Races.

    "You can have as many races as you can fit in a dialog box. You just need to create a dialog button for each new race and give it a numeric value. Then you need to set that race's variables like the other races have done for them and finally set the NumOfRaces variable to the number of races that you have."

    Mephestrial,

    You are right. I don't know what i did wrong before, But anyway, i deleted the new custom races triggers, and create them again. Now it works.

    I don't know how to make the 13th, 14th, 15th ... races to work.

    When i select them in the beginning, nothing happens.

    13th option is Random now.



    "Also even with pure melee triggers a tavern hero can be free if it is your first hero. "


    You are right again! I could swear that the first Tavern hero has not free. But i checked again in Normal Melee Game, and indeed the first Tavern hero is free, if you didn't get any altar hero.

    I'm sure that in the past it was not free, but with all the updates we automatically download when we go to Battle.net, this was probably changed and i didn't notice.


    I don't know if it's possible to create a "Next >>" option to go to another page with more races to choose.

    But, thanks a lot for these triggers. I always dreamed to have a "Custom Race" selection system. Man, i don't know how to thank you.

    One small bug.

    I found another problem.

    Set HallEntanglesGoldmine = True

    Don't work.

    The Tree of Life always starts too far away from the Gold Mine to entangle it.


    Please, let me know when you update the triggers.

    It's working.

    "I found another problem.

    Set HallEntanglesGoldmine = True

    Don't work."



    Sorry. I forgot to do that:

    Set UnitType_Goldmine = Entangled Gold Mine

    It's perfect. Too bad there is a 12 races limit.

    Lots of memory leaks in the custom script code (MeleeStartingUnitsCustom especially), lot of "ConvertedPlayerId" bj's shows very little thought was applied into the custom scripts.

    This needs a lot of work. The GUI side of things sees a lot of problems.

    RacesDialogClickDetection - this needs to take advantage of the else-actions.

    And - All (Conditions) are true

    - This line is not needed. Conditions automatically check if all are true. In fact, that whole statement should just be removed and put as an "else" action, because you do not need to re-check what the value is that way.

    CreateAlteredMeleeStartingUnits - horrendous. What is it even doing? There is a lot of bad structure found her, especially concerning the waits.

    "noobs who can't see pattern" is no reason to write really redundant code that does nothing and even slows things down. If what you did was intentional, what you did is worse than adding a "Do nothing" action.
