Well i am making a map where this trigger gets turned on by another and i need to have weather effects happen on this trigger. First a blizzard then after 250 sec it changes to heavy snow then 250 sec later light snow then 250 sec later rays of light.I used variables instead of environment now because turning on and off the environment weather effects wasn't working. No weather effects happen when i try it on the map, I cant see them at least. Anyone know what the problem is?

Your Turn off (This trigger) should be at the very end, because everytime this trigger gets enabled or turned on, every 2 seconds it's going to turn it off before it gets through all of your other actions.

If this doesn't work, remove the event that causes the trigger to run every 2 seconds OR seperate all of your triggers and activate one after another disabling the one before.

You wont need the turn off (This Trigger) at all, because you Trigger it via another Trigger. But like Mazurite stated you should also remove the 2seconds of gametime event. Also you should use Run Trigger (checking Conditions). To give a bit feedback on the Trigger itself. If you use loops with combinded Arrays, you could save some space.

  • Example
    • Events
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • For each Integer tmp 1 to 4 do
        • Loop Actions
          • Environment - Create at Nukeregion[tmp] the weather effect Northrend Blizzard
          • Set Blizzard[tmp] = (Last created weather effect)
          • Environment - Turn Blizzard[tmp] On
This Example will create 4 Blizzards in your 4 Nukeregions. To create an Array you will have to check the field ind the variable menu [ ] array. To use the Arrays later in the loop, you must set them before once (only the static stuff, like regions, units, items). Here The Trigger

  • Example Ini
    • Events
      • Map Ini
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set Nukeregion[1] = nukewint1 <gen>
      • Set Nukeregion[2] = nukewint2 <gen>
      • Set Nukeregion[3] = nukewint3 <gen>
      • Set Nukeregion[4] = nukewint4 <gen>
Also there is a littel Typo in the Trigger
  • Environment - Turn Blizzard On
  • Environment - Turn Blizzard2 Off
  • should be Off
