Combination Effects Expansion

Author File Description
File Details
Version: AoM: The Titans

This is an epic project. Two key points are made with it. One, newbies and newer people will (hopefully) learn how to use triggers and create some other effects. Two, for advanced designers and those proficient with triggers, this will be a great help for reminding how to make cool factors, and probably even new ones.


If you have downloaded Combination Effects before the date of 26th September 2009, then re download it now. This is the new Combination Effects Expansion, there are many new features. Parts of the map have been fixed, mainly typos and problems. The main part is that many text files are also included with it now, that show you some awesome trigger effects, and help you with some triggers.

Click on the words the arrows are pointing to to go to the forum thread for combination effects. Wait, you need to. It has all the information about it and features and guidelines that you will need to read. CLICK IT OR ELSE!!!

Oh, and one more thing. If you rate my file or just comment on it, don't you dare give Combination Effects a lower score or opinion because something didn't work right for you or there were bugs. I swear to you, every bit of it is working right, there are no bugs whatsoever. If you think so and something happened that made you think that, you either just aren't smart enough to see how small of an impact it had, or I meant for it to happen. Also, the readme tells you everything to do, if you don't follow it exactly, then you messed it up, not me.

This is great help for any designer. I never knew what was possible with the transform trigger, or about anti gravity triggers. This has to be the best help scenario I have seen. The AI sort of failed, but it got better as it went along. I really enjoyed the weather effects, although it was a bit ardous watching them. All in all a great program which I recommend to everyone. Both thumbs up!

Thank you for showing me things.

A beautifully created tutorial to making triggers that's sure to be helpful to many is the best way to descrive this scenario. I've always been bad at triggers, particularly quest vars, although I think I'm beginning to understand them. This scenario shows people the reason the editor of Age of Mythology is the best of its kind- its flexibility. I wasn't sure if I'd like this or not originally due to the fact that I prefer documents, but it was nice. The part that brings it down is the anti-gravity part-I couldn't get past it. My sheep were stubbornly uncooperative and the wolves didn't seem scared of me at all. Really, all that did is warn me off the "amazing" effect. This caused me to miss out on the weather, which I'd love to have seen in action, and may put to use in a "Capture the Flag" scenario I'm busy creating.

Additional Comments:
Over all it was a well designed tutorial, although a few parts were unclear and you didn't tell me where the "pause" button was. I found it, though ;P

Additional Comments:
After some soul-searching, I have changed this to a 5 because it did teach me many things and is skippable.

I really liked this guide and it was well made overall, but a few things wasn't perfect, therfore I can only give you a 4.5!!!EDIT!!!Since you now edited it I can sure give you a 5.0...:. In the first chapter I think the dialouges went by too fast!!!EDIT!!!Not any more, excellent., and you didn't really explain the usage of triggers. However, most parts of the scenario was really helpfull and intresting, like the different uses of the transform trigger you shown, or the anty gravity effects. The cinematic and special effects was really nice and it explained both basics and andvanced cinematic features. I think the AI chapter wasn't that nice since it really didn't explain mutch and the battle wasn't intresting to play at all. But overall, a really good guide that will help a lot of people.

GREAT! This guide is really usefull for new people and then it gets more and more advanced. It deserves the score I'm now giving it. (Before I edited this review it was a 4.8).

Additional Comments: Good work, just needs a few tiny improvements...
