    I'm looking for sum1 to make a simplified version of attack in a line by pushing a letter key. If u have ever played Azeroth carts by Blizzard it is the custom made trigger that lets u press the "F" key and ur unit will fire his carts machine gun in a line. I dont care wut format u use whether it jass, preset triggers, or another format as long as it works without glitches and it is easily made and can be ajusted for multiple units range and damage (ex: player1 is using a steam tank and its range would be 300 but player2 is using a catapult and its range is 500 and they can both work at the same time). Thx to any who try this I would really appreciate it.:emote_cool:

    Well, Azeroth Grand Prix is written in JASS, or Just Another Scripting System.

    Pressing F is easy, that's just the hotkey.

    As for shooting a bullet in front of you, you have to use a dummy and detect when there is a unit near it, then destroy the dummy and damage the hit unit.

    www.thehelper.net is a useful resource for all asiring spellmakers out there,

    What exactly are you wanting the unit to shoot. For example, if you want the unit to deal damage infront of it, then just write a trigger.

    Event: Unit begins casting a spell
    Conditions: Spell being cast equal to "Shoot"
    Actions: Unit - Cause (Triggering unit) to damage circular area after 0.00 seconds of radius 200.00 at (Position of (Triggering unit) offset by (500) towards (facing (Triggering Unit) degrees), dealing 100.00 damage of attack type Spells and damage type Normal

    Edit: Had to remove the Trigger tags because it broke the page.

    Hero-Sian told you how to do it..
    If you want a projectile, make the spell which your using have a missile.
    For the spell, base it of "Channel" and change the missile art to the desired missile art. and remove all the buffs, damage etc... ( I don't think there is anyway..)

    Event: Unit begins casting a spell
    Conditions: Spell being cast equal to "Shoot"
    Actions: Unit - Cause (Triggering unit) to damage circular area after 0.00 seconds of radius 200.00 at (Position of (Triggering unit) offset by (500) towards (facing (Triggering Unit) degrees), dealing 100.00 damage of attack type Spells and damage type Normal


    There you go.. That's about it.. You have a firing spell..



    EDIT: +Rep Haha :)
