So you don't like the spawn-system of my map? D: I gave you my map, a fully working TD, so you could have some good triggers and you didn't even give me rep D:
That actually wasn't what I wanted to say...(don't mind the above :p)

Do not double post threads! (this thread and the one in the WE help zone).

Look at my green circle TD gold map. I made a perfect example of an efficent and easilly maintainable spawn system from which you can learn the basics. Ofcourse it probably is unsuited for your current task, but the concept it uses is what you are meant to learn so you will be capable of creating your own.

Basically I have a wave table with wave stats like length of wave, number spawned and type of unit (and any additional text or values used). Then I have the main engine which uses the table and some variables and runs continuasly in a chain until after the final wave. This programming outline I find most effective as it allows easy maintenence of every axpect of the system and is also highly efficent as the same code is reused all the time.

By table, all I mean is a group of parralel arrays with information grouped together without any gaps so that it can be axcessed easilly and logically. Eg Array entry 1 contains wave 1, Entry 2 contains wave 2 etc.

Heh, I use the same type of system in my map, but I think he didn't like that :D
(I only didn't use wave length, as the wave starts at a preset time after the previous wave is defeated).
