Hello all...

Recently, I have started creating a new scenario, and I am about 30% complete and I've already hit a snag...

I have a problem with a certain trigger.

I wish to make it so that every 30 kills, a cow spawns in a certain area, yet I can't see how to do it.
I have tried looping, but then came to the conclusion, that it will only spawn the cow if you have 30 kills, it will NOT spawn every 30 kills.

You help on this matter is much appreciated.

Please Note: I have created the whole trigger, and it works fine, the only dilemma is what is above. What I ask for is a soloution to that problem, or if there is no solution, the easiest way around it.

loop wont work no way to go back to one, so just keep counting the second one would be 60.ok

well, you have to keep counting them. next condition would be when player has 60 kills, next one would be 90, 120, ETC.

btw, what is cow studios? is that a design team?

Thanks, now I also have another question related to your answer:

Would it be easier to set it so I have to create many triggers, or would it be better to change the whole interface eg. Unit in area for X amount of time creates the cow

@Auron_
Yes, Cow Studios is a design team.
It cosists primarily of 2 people, and we started up 3 days ago. We specialize in creating cow related scenarios, and altering existing scenarios so that they ARE cow related (with the owners permission of course)

Haha

I had a three headed cow it one of my scn. But maybe you don't go for that three on one action.

but dont you want one cow to spawn every 30 kills?


so you mean create an effect which spawns/creates a cow when a certain unit is in area, and depending on how long this unit remains on that area? you can be more specific though i think the way i told you is easy, and besides, there is the copy/paste trigger option in the new editors

btw, whats cow studios?
EDIT: nm you just reposted...although you should had just edited your post instead of making a new one.

oh yea, i think i saw an scenario of yours where you had a 3 headed mythic unit...but it wasnt a cow, and there was also this centauron making a snake appear out of a pot and it bit him

Uhh, I'm not much of a designer, but the new Wiki has an article that could help you, and it only uses one trigger that will continue working, in your case, for as many cows as you can imagine.

's right here

Ok, I will be more specific, sorry Auron_

What I meant is... hmm, I'll give you an example:

There is a raised circle in the middle of the map, and I set the trigger so that 5 Hoplites are on that circle for 30 seconds it will create the cow.

I personally think that it would be easier, because it would only require 1 looped trigger

well, you can (like xamo does in his scenarios) put an object like a plenty vault. when this unit is owned for a certain a mount of time, it will spawn a cow.

OR, you can make it with unit in area too. that way works too, and i think is easier....though defining the radius may get confusing, but with practice you can get it easy

EDIT: btw sziggy, i just visited your home page, and i really didnt know you were that old!, you even have a child of your own
EDIT2: this has turned into a life chat

Has everyone forgotten Oddy's Kill-Counter Guide? The one he used to post about all over the place?

There are several kill counters linked to in the pinned "Guide to Editor Tips..." thread.
