Knockup system GUI

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
hello, I noticed there is no knockback system which basicly is a nicer version of a stun so I decided to create one if, you most likely know this if you play leauge of legends (LoL). It is GUI and easy to use.

Simple to use and useful.

  • Do this only if KUS_knockup is true, it can cause leaks otherwise
    • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
      • If - Conditions
        • (Current flying height of KUS_target) Greater than or equal to KUS_height

      • Else - Actions
  • The flying height equation could be more realistic,
    the change in direction is a bit abrupt
  • The system could be more configurable

  • The flying height could use better method, some equation
    It could look better
  • You could set turn speed to 0 while being knocked up

  • prepare is not a proper function name
  • The effect, height and speed should be optional/configurable for each knockup separately
  • Removing Crow Form like that will remove it from units that are supposed to have it
  • Don't use Pause unit, it pauses unit also and if paused units die, it bugs a bit
  • The animation should be configurable/optional
  • The looping trigger should be off when there are no units to loop
  • Flying units will bug with this

1. hm ok I will fix that
2. well it could be that but I thought it would be nice with a general height but I guess your right since you might use it to more than one spell in a map
3. did not think of that I will put it in a ITE
4. what do you suggest then? that is a good way to make sure the unit wont move somewhere. should I move it to the original location insted?
5. true, will do
6. hm, if I set the units fly height to default and its a ground unit it will be set to 0 right?

4. Custom script: call SetUnitPropWindow(unit, 0)
Reset it with SetUnitPropWindow(unit, GetUnitDefaultPropWindow(unit))
6. Yes, it should work like that.

@maker what do that script do I have never used i before.

to do:
add a local integer for hashtable key
find a better way to stun the unit

  • -------- DON*T TOUCH BELLOW --------
  • Custom script: set udg_KUS_hash = InitHashtable()
  • Skip remaining actions
  • Custom script: endfunction
eh?

functions should have prefixes in their names(that's because we dont have privates)

This would be better if this uses Physics so much,just like my old knockback 3D hayss

hmm,because i remember my KB3D,i should start fixing it as well
