>Not MUI (using waits and not using indexing)
>No configurables

Overall, needs lots and lots and lots of work. Please ask for help in the Triggers & Scripts section how to make these spells MUI, efficient and leakless

"Spells must be free of bugs, leaks, unreasonable lag, and must be fully multiinstanceable."

Try casting the spells with two different units... it doesn't work great. Spells must be fully MUI, means that more than one unit may cast the spell at the same time and have it work.

Suggestions: Hashtables

You use arrayed variables [#] in places that you don't need 'em. They take up more memory and are usually slower. Make another variable and de-array the ones that are using the arrays.

  • Set Lighting[0] = (Last created lightning effect)
  • Set Lighting[1] = (Last created lightning effect)
  • //Change that to:
  • Set LightningA = (Last created lightning effect)
  • Set LightningB = (Last created lightning effect)
A loop of .01 is waaaay to fast. Use .03 for the best results. Also, you should turn on/off the loops when they're not in use, as it helps reduce lagg.

Position of (Caster) or any (Position of (Unit)) leaks, set it to a variable and destroy it when done.

  • Set (YourPoint) = Position of (Caster)
  • //
  • //End of spell
  • Custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_(YourPoint))
=====================================================

  • Wait 0.50 seconds
Waits usually prevent spells from being MUI, unless you're dealing with locals... still, they're not great. I suggest using a loop and increasing a integer to avoid this...

You use 2+ loops per spell. You should merge the loops, and its more efficient and can help reduce the map file size... slightly.

  • Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units within 700.00 of Point[3] matching (((Matching unit) belongs to an enemy of (Owner of Caster)) Equal to True)) and do (Actions)
    • Loop - Actions
  • //This leaks. Use this to prevent it:
  • //
  • //
  • Custom script: set bj_wantDestroyGroup = true
  • Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units within 700.00 of Point[3] matching (((Matching unit) belongs to an enemy of (Owner of Caster)) Equal to True)) and do (Actions)
    • Loop - Actions
============================================

  • Unit - Order Dummy[3] to Human Blood Mage - Flame Strike (Position of Dummy[3])
The caster does not inflict damage with this... the dummy unit does. This can conflict with systems...

============================================

  • For each (Integer A) from 1 to 6, do (Actions)
    • Loop - Actions
      • Unit - Create 1 (tornado of doom) for (Owner of Caster) at Point[5] facing Default building facing degrees
      • Unit - Order (Last created unit) to Undead Crypt Lord - Impale ((Position of (Last created unit)) offset by 350.00 towards ((Real((Integer A))) x 60.00) degrees)
Don't use (Integer A), use a variable... its more efficient.

===============================

Instead of creating lightning effects in GUI, you may create it in custom script and apply height (Z), which makes lightning look alot better.

  • Custom script: set udg_Lightning = AddLightningEx(udg_LightningType, true , GetLocationX(udg_P), GetLocationY(udg_P), GetLocationZ(udg_P) + (udg_Height), GetLocationX(udg_P2), GetLocationY(udg_P2), GetLocationZ(udg_P2) + (udg_Height2) )

===============================
===============================

~Needs some work~
