Tornado & Meteor Strike v1.05b

Submitted by Mage_Goo
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
tooltip


Well, I'm creating this for S&SMC #18, but i fail to update it again to add more system.
It's too hard to tell the spell from the tooltip or screenshot, it's pretty complex.

Credit to msaeed28 for creating the tooltip, cause I confused to create it due to complex spell.
This spell is still NOT done, I'm still want to Improve it like adding knockback, dummy handle system, etc.
Due to Laziness and Busy, I decide to not Improve this spell. At least not until I get time to do it.
This spell contain my MUI index system, Nova system, Dps system created by me. You can use that, but give credit to me.
This spell still contain some Object editor ability that not used and a trigger that not used

    Well, download and comment.

    The tooltip didn't say all of the spell due to tooltip limit. So test it to see all of the spell does

    The description at hive was great, kinda interesting look.

    1 question, why your Meteor Strike description at hiveworkshop show 2 hotkey?

    Fix this in the resource description in the Tornado Tooltip:
    Change this:
    Things corrected in YellowGreen are optional and just for the sake of better understanding and easiness. However, the thing in Red is a grammatical mistake to be fixed.

    And thanks for mentioning me :D appreciated!


    @ Septimus:
    he mentioned it twice because it's the same letter...
    & i'll read your mind and agree that it would be better if only one hotkey of the two T's is shown as hotkey ;)

    S&S #18 submision upload, eh?
    I will make sure i redo my one before uploading(better indexing will be implemented to reduce lag).
    Anyway redownloading...

    EDIT:
    Too bad you didn't implement that nova in your submision :p
    Also i don't know if it will make a difrence but i would turn off the core triggers of the systems so they aren't initialy on :p

    Ok, now I'm update the spell and fix the error. Thanks for find it!:grin:
    Hmm, you mean only one T is colored? Well, that's won't cause any difference.
    Sorry for that, the spell can't opened/cause error while downloading because the spell name was too long. Now I'm update it and shorten the name.
    Well, maybe you're right, will do in another update, together with adding knockback and parabolic knockback system.

    Why should you do that?
    Belive me overcomplicated spells are sometimes worse than simple ones :p
    I think that by adding so much systems you get a hard-to-copy really complex spell...
    Still my thoughts, if this were my spell i would leave it as it is :p

    It's to change some impossible/strange part of the spell, like this:
    damaged again while in the eye (I'm going to change it to throwed)
    Unit have "Burned" buff, but not taking damage.
    Burned tornado just getting red (I'm going to add fire effect)
    When tornado explode, it's just add effect (I'm going to add knockback)

    To make it more easy-to-copy I'll combine all of these system to only one very-long-and-complicated trigger.
    I'm going to reduce the usage of object editor stuff and change it to triggered system cause trigger is easier to copy.

    Well, at least it will increase my triggering skill, isn't?

    It still a long way to go.

    I told you my advice, and if you really want to practice triggering you should try to do stuff and use actions you never used :p
    Good luck on the spells though...

    EDIT:
    Here have some experience(+5 exp)^^
    You should level up right about.....now ;)

    Well hey, it worked:grin:
    The spells themselves aren't extremely original, but the way you combine them certainly is^^
    I looked through the triggering hastily (99% sure i missed some stuff...),
    but it seems that your periodic triggers are never turned off?
    I also noticed that you use custom values.
    I dont know anything about it, but i mostly hear that using custom values is baaaad...

    Else, nice idea and execution (though the tornado created some powerful lag when
    moving through the fire o_O).

    So 4/5 and +rep:thumbs_up:

    Tornado lag caused by too many effect it's created, but it's only lag on level 3-4.
    The periodic trigger is never turned off, cause i don't think it's a must, will changed on next update.
    I use custom value for the dummy, not the caster, it's not bad.

    Well, for the lag, i don't know how to fix it, I've try changed the effect, but it's still lag.

    Cool. I like it. The use of special effects is good.
