I've seen this asked before and it seems not possible to detect a block through triggers in a large mazing area without a lag spike. But it has been asked soo long ago, I don't know if anyone had any breakthroughs?

I mean Warcraft 3 itself has to run A* code everytime a movement order is issued and that doesn't lag.

I've been trying to get it to work myself using Hashtables representing a grid of stored integers X and Y. I save 1 as unwalkable squares and 2 as waypoints. 0 is walkable. Below is my triggers, Idk if anyone knows a way to optimize it?

I can't really suggest anything specific regarding your code but I'm sure JASS/Lua would open up a lot more options for efficiency. Anyway, here's an idea that I had regarding the concept in general.

The idea I had was to create a Line of Sight Blocker inside of every single Tower built. Then make sure to have a computer player that has absolutely no vision of the map. Next you would create some unit(s) for that computer player at a starting point that would attempt to cast the "Blink" ability towards an end point. The Blink ability requires an area to be explored first to cast. So the only way that the ability would work is if the computer had vision, and the only way that the computer would have vision is if there was some gaps between the line of sight blockers (no complete wall-offs).

I'm not sure about all of the details or whether or not it will even work but it's something to think about I guess.

Tried it, seems to clunky to get it to work properly, maybe if I was better with triggers lol.

But I figured some shtuffs out with my original triggers, hashtables use more ram than integer arrays. So I replaced the hashtable with an 3124 integer array. Runs a bit smoother now, I'd say playable.

Testing it if I can somehow reduce the number of math equations within the loop to a min it will be even more optimal.

Alright so after some googles, are you talking about "structs"?
Most tutorials use "local" variables within the "structs" but I need to retrieve the same information throughout the game so I need "globals"
But then I'm just putting a "global integer array" inside a "struct" which seems no more ram efficient than GUI. Idk if your referring to something else?

A short example vjass trigger would be very helpful
