Very good trigger pack with one of the MOST useful custom effects I've seen yet: The effect FIRE EVENT Random Event.
It basically enables a designer to easily activates a list of up to 6 random triggers. The practical use for this is creating random events in a scenario's story, so that each time a player plays the scenario, the details in the story will not be exactly the same.
Additional Comments: Recommended download for serious scenario designers.

@Khan: Some of these effects, such as FIRE EVEN Random, might work in regular AOM if you copy/paste the codes over to the AoM's typetest.xml.
@nottud: You should include a readme file in the download, or at least write the instructions on how to install this file here on this page, since many players might not know what to do with the typetest.xml ;-).

Sorry about the lack of instructions, I had very little time to upload. I will add instructions.
Barely any of the effects will work on non expansion since it uses QVs to work.
Forbid all and unforbid all should work on AOM non expansion and the "Go to" and that main menu one should definately work.

I love these triggers! Tysm nottud! Theres just one bug with one...
The Easy shop stuff. When i tried using the condition, the buyer (old man) was at least 10 spaces away from the target shop unit, (he needed to be 1 space away to buy it as set in the trigger condition,) and he still bought it! I think there is a bug with the radius.
Maybe you could also add a QV Count Units in Area that counts the units in an area and adds them to the var.
Anyways... Great job! Keep up the good work! :)

Yes, the Easy shop CONDITION doesn't work. Seems like I can't combine conditions together and instead it makes it into an OR statement.

Using the && symbol in an XML file makes the document non-well-formed, but here's a little workaround with boolean math:
