    Can anyone help me with a map I'm trying to make.
    It is somehow related to UB - Ultimate Battle v2.20b AI+
    I am creating multiple races; however, I don't have the time to learn advanced triggers.
    I am trying to create a dialog where a player can select the custom races.

    Thank you

    +rep to anyone who helps

    Learning to make a single dialog selection trigger is not "advanced" and you should be able to do it (I actually believe in you, this isn't me being a dick about it). You may find the demo map in this thread useful: Good Custom Race Chooser template map?

    Dialog Triggers are quite easy for beginners i think.
    But what about the race selection?

    I dont know the Ultimate Battle map, so i dont know what you are after.

    However for an meele map you need to create starting units for the players yourself, set a hero training limit, initial resourcess and so on. Is it an player vs pc map? In that case you might need an custom AI.

    Edit:
    When you have some time i recommand you a tower defense tutorial. This way i started triggeting. It can be frustrating a bit, becouse TD's use much triggers with much functions and so on. Well the good point is, that you learn much about the trigger editor by trying it. Solving
    a TD tutorial might open some doors for you to create games no one has thaught about yet.

    The more i learn about triggers, the less im playing becouse i love to play god more and more...
    ;)
