Imploding Vortex v. 1.4

This bundle is marked as useful / simple. Simplicity is bliss, low effort and/or may contain minor bugs.
Summons a vortex which sucks everything in an area of effect into the center, the closer the target is to the center the faster it will be pulled. After 10 seconds all units in the vortex will be blown out, taking damage after how close they were to the center of the vortex.

This spell should be fully mui and leakless - should be, don't take my word for it ;)

This is my first spell on the hive, so I hope you like.

Maker, 2nd Aug 2011, Imploding Vortex v. 1.4

Add importing instructions into the map.
The last custom script in the looping trigger is in a wrong place.
The indexing works, but using an array inside an array is not that good way.
Maybe even use dynamic indexing. That is not mandatory though.
The ability must not be restricted to only one level.

The stops casting trigger shouldn't be on all the time.
A period of 0.05 seconds doesn't make the knockback look smooth.
Don't spam 20 effects per second per unit.
EM_Index_Size Equal to 0 should be done after Set EM_Index_Size = (EM_Index_Size - 1), not during every loop.

OK... here's the problem...
1) Spell affects both enemies and allies.
2) Only 1 level, which, if you add levels at object editor, you will eventually have to change the triggers because of the appropriate damage differential between levels...
3) I'm a noob, still learning and I don't know how to do these... this spell has too much variables and triggers itself for a newbie...

please... never post 4 reply in a row.
if you want to change damage between levels, set a real variable = X * Level of Spell (the level will be in integer so you will need to convert it into real)
**X: is some real value like 100. So, level 1 will do 100 damage, level 2, 200 etc...

For only damaging enemies, when you check which unit will be hit, put a boolean that will check if the unit is enemy of your caster. Make it equal to true
