I have 1 Major Unit (Z) and I have 5 minor units (a,b,c,d,e). Now I want to create a trigger that when 'Z' unit dies, 3 out of 5 minor units will spawn, but these units should be randomly selected and must not be the same.
Example: (1) Z dies > spawns a,b & c (2) Z dies > spawns d,b,e (3) Z dies > spawns e,a,c

Now how can I make this work with trigger?

Init trigger:
Set max = 5 // integer
set u[1] = u1 // unit types
set u[2] = u2
set u[3] = u3
set u[4] = u4
set u[5] = u5

Spawn trigger:
Unit dies
Unit(type) == your unit(type)
set count = max
set ua[1] = u[1]
set ua[2] = u[2]
set ua[3] = u[3]
set ua[4] = u[4]
set ua[5] = u[5]
loop integer a from 1 to 3
-set int = random integer between 1 and count
-create ua[int]
-set ua[int] = ua[count]
-set count = count - 1

Make the variable an array, that is what the brackets mean.

Okay, hang on a sec.

Like this?

didn't work :/

the first time it creates Dumb,Deaf, and Noob, the second time it creates Peon, Chick and Chick, the third until the fifth it creates Chick,Chick and Chick :/

Mine worked perfectly as well. :) Thanks to you both. Can't give you both repus, says i should spread reputation around first. :D sry

you should remember to remove the point leaks.
