[GUI]Simple Stun System v1.0 [UnitIndexer Version]

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Back from the dead, the legend is back!

As a tribute to an old friend - Paladon - I coded a system in his honor which looks a lot like his old systems.

This is the UnitIndexer Version.

And I'm sorry, new computer, haven't installed photoshop thus awesome paint picture :D

and I'm sorry, it doesn't use firebolt as dummy ability but stormbolt works just fine when you made it an ultimate ability (with standard game constants ^^)

Simple Stun System v1.0 (Unit Indexer Version)
by baassee

Credits
baassee for being back from the dead
Bribe for the UnitIndexer
Paladon, nothing less than a shining knight - system is in paladon style to honor him in his absence

DOCUMENTION
Simple system just like the other system but this is much better, based on a unit indexer by Bribe which reduces the amount of iterations by way far.

As this is not the like the stand alone version, you have to have unitindexer which is provided in the same folder.

Read the readmes for their features, basic in the first README it explains how to stun.
In README2 it gives you the possibility to cancel a stun at any given time.

also uses only one dummy unit - all the time. Creates it at map ini and never removes it omg omg so much performance boost

oh right btw, stun stacks, so if you stun a unit with one spell cast another spell that stuns too - the durations will add up together ^^ (OMG PERMASTUN SO OP)
this above is of course up to the user him/herself

HOW TO COPY PASTE
1. Copy paste the ability, buff and dummy unit. Remember to fix buff on the ability when you imported it to the correct buff.
2. Copy StunSystemStandAlone folder into your map
3. Follow all triggers and read where I pointed out where to fix this or that
4. Credit me and be happy to use a fully working stun system.

Changelog.
v1.0 released

Good luck! And please credit me - baassee - if you use this system. Thank you!

Any questions just throw me a PM or VM or reply to the resource thread.

Sincerly,
baassee

      • -------- thats it ^^ so simple system right --------
      • -------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------- --------



So time for some pros vs. cons.
Pros
  • Can stun any given unit at any given time.
  • Can cancel stun at any given time.
  • Can stun magic immune units (If constants are not touched ^^)
  • Any duration.
  • Stun stacks with other stuns from the system (rarely a pro, can also be a con but as said, implemented a cancel feature as well). - NOW YOU CAN CHOOSE IF YOU WANT IT TO STACK WITH THE PREVIOUS STUN OR JUST CHOOSE THE LAST ONE.
  • Only uses one dummy unit.
Cons
  • A unit can basicly be perma-stunned as the stuns stack with each others. - This can only happen if the user now only uses stack with the boolean added ^^
  • If you checked the constant "ultimate goes through magic immune" or whatever the name is, it will not work on magic immune units (false by default which makes it workable).
  • Well I included a GFX string variable BUT I recommend to use the standard version. Cause if different abilities got different stun GFX and a unit gets stunned, the GFX will not stack but the stun will (no it doesn't leak).
  • GFX will be overhead - I will not change this.
  • Shouldn't be used it any other stun systems nor even stun abilities. But it should work with other stun abilities due to the fact of custom buff yet I have not tested it so I cannot recommend this.
  • Structures cannot be target.
  • Mag96 sux :)

Have fun with the system. Give credit if used please.

Also, it's great that you took the time to add comments to this.

And yes, I do suck ^.^
