So i am trying to make an item recovery quest where the player needs to find 4 items in order to complete the quest. I have an item stacking system and so am not sure how to do this trigger, normal item recovery with only 1 item works fine however.

Here's what i got so far.

  • Cold Nights
    • Events
      • Unit - Ballista Engineer 0160 <gen> Is selected
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Trigger - Turn off (This trigger)
      • Trigger - Turn on Cold Nights Count <gen>
      • Game - Display to (All players) the text: |c0000FF40Ballista ...
      • Special Effect - Destroy Quest_GiverSFX[6]
      • Quest - Create a Required quest titled Cold Nights with the description I met a ballista en..., using icon path ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\BTNPeasant.blp
      • Set Cold_Nights = (Last created quest)
      • Quest - Create a quest requirement for Cold_Nights with the description Find 4 Brown bear p...
      • Set Find_BearPelts = (Last created quest requirement)
      • Quest - Display to (All players) the Quest Discovered message: |c008080C0New Quest...
  • Cold Nights Count
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Acquires an item
    • Conditions
      • (Item-type of (Item being manipulated)) Equal to Brown Bear Pelt
    • Actions
      • Set BearPeltCount = (BearPeltCount + 1)
      • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
        • If - Conditions
          • BearPeltCount Greater than or equal to 4
        • Then - Actions
          • Quest - Mark Find_BearPelts as Completed
          • Quest - Display to (All players) the Quest Update message: Objective Completed...
          • Quest - Create a quest requirement for Cold_Nights with the description Return to the engin...
          • Set Return_To_Engineer = (Last created quest requirement)
          • Trigger - Turn on Cold Nights Complete <gen>
          • Trigger - Turn off (This trigger)
        • Else - Actions
  • Cold Nights Complete
    • Events
      • Unit - Ballista Engineer 0160 <gen> Is selected
    • Conditions
      • (Charges remaining in (Item carried by Player1 of type Brown Bear Pelt)) Greater than or equal to 4
    • Actions
      • Trigger - Turn off (This trigger)
      • Game - Display to (All players) the text: |c0000FF40Ballista ...
      • Quest - Mark Return_To_Engineer as Completed
      • Quest - Mark Cold_Nights as Completed
      • Quest - Display to (All players) the Quest Completed message: Quest Completed
      • Hero - Add 500 experience to Player1, Show level-up graphics
 
Hey there,
in your second trigger when he requires all 4 try adding a boolean.
  • Set ExampleBoolean = true
Then check if in the final trigger, but also instead of charges remaining do it this way, its more ifs. But it will help
  • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
    • If - Conditions
      • ExampleBoolean equal to (==) true
    • Then - Actions
      • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
        • If - Conditions
          • (Charges remaining in (Item carried by Player1 of type Brown Bear Pelt)) Greater than or equal to 4
        • Then - Actions
          • Trigger - Turn off (This trigger)
          • Game - Display to (All players) the text: |c0000FF40Ballista ...
          • Quest - Mark Return_To_Engineer as Completed
          • Quest - Mark Cold_Nights as Completed
          • Quest - Display to (All players) the Quest Completed message: Quest Completed
          • Hero - Add 500 experience to Player1, Show level-up graphics
          • Else - Actions
    • Else - Actions

Hmm, is there some kind of law that i can only use that Boolean trick just once?
I made another item recovery quest, the trigger is identical excpet ofcourse different variables, different items needed and such.
But it just doesn't work :S

Well if you want you can index the boolean,
But is your quest do-able by one person, or all people at once,
If it is all people at once. Then you can just one variable and index it like so
  • Set ExampleBoolean[1] = True
or if your doing for each player
  • Set QuestnameBoolean[(Player number of ([Triggering Player))] = true
Well if your doing per player, Would be a good idea to set a TempVariable to playernumber.
  • Set TempNumber = (Player number of (Triggering Player))
  • Set QuestnameBoolean[TempNumber] = true
 
It's Single Player game so it doesn't really matter ^^

Ohh okay
What you can do is set Prefixs to certain quests
1 = A quest
2 = another
so it would be
  • Set ExampleBoolean[1] = True
  • set ExampleBoolean[2] = False
So each quest has a different number, so now we put it in a trigger
  • Conditions
    • ExampleBoolean[2] = True
  • Actions
    • Game - Display Message to (Player) bla bla bla.
    • ------ Obviosuly you would change the two to what ever number you want, but make sure to make it true once the quest requirements are met. -----

Sorry for Necroposting but i don't wanna make a thread bout the same thing.
Anyway the triggers worked for a while and now they just stopped working O.O
I have no idea what i did or whats causing this, i used an array like you said.
A different array nr. for each quest.
Here's but one of many item recovery quests that stopped working.

  • Delicous Rockberries Count
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Acquires an item
    • Conditions
      • (Item-type of (Item being manipulated)) Equal to Delicous Rockberry
    • Actions
      • Set Rockberry_Count = (Rockberry_Count + 1)
      • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
        • If - Conditions
          • Rockberry_Count Greater than or equal to 6
        • Then - Actions
          • Set B_ItemRecovery[1] = True
          • Quest - Mark Gather_Rockberry as Completed
          • Quest - Display to (All players) the Quest Update message: Objective Completed...
          • Quest - Create a quest requirement for Q_Delicous_Rockberries with the description Return the berries ...
          • Set Return_Alchemist = (Last created quest requirement)
          • Trigger - Turn on Delicous Rockberries Complete <gen>
          • Trigger - Turn off (This trigger)
        • Else - Actions
Anyway that's the Counting trigger, only showing this hence i figured it's the most important one.
