Action: Wait
Format: Wait quantity seconds
Note: Waits before executing next action
Use: Very useful and self explanatory.

Question 3: How do I make an Ecom?
Ecoms are very simple. Just create a trigger with the conditions you want, and as an action select “Ecom”. It will ask you several things, like the size of it, if it goes on to another ecom or just closes, and the people involved in it. Fill all these in, and you’re done!

Question 4: How do I set objectives?
There are a few actions involved with objectives. They are:
Set Formal Objective Info
Set Formal Objective Status
Set Formal Objective Text
Set Objective
“Set Formal Objective Info” is the action where you can enter what the summary in the objectives screen says. Every good level should have this. Space is rather limited, so keep it concise. Use in the “Mission Loaded” action to fire it when the mission starts.
“Set Formal Objective Status” is used to set a specific objective to a string of text that you type in. Most common objective statuses are “Complete”, “Incomplete”, and “Optional”. Use at the start to set the initial string, and then whenever you want to modify it (like when an objective is completed) just use this action again.
“Set Formal Objective Text” is the action where you can name the objective. Some examples are “Rescue Jana’s Shuttle” or “Destroy OMNI Base”. Use this at the beginning of the mission.
“Set Objective” just puts a small message in the upper left corner of the screen. It stays there, so be careful about what you want to say. Sometimes it’s best not to have it because it obstructs the view a little.

Question 5: How can I make the enemy attack?
This is one of the more difficult things in the mission editor because there is no perfect way to make them attack. One thing you can do is create a unit group with all the units you want, and inside the unit group you can say where you want them to attack to. Sometimes people want an enemy to attack every 5 minutes or so. In this case they would make this trigger:
Condition 1: Every 300 Seconds (300 seconds = 5 minutes)
Action 1: Create Unit group ‘Attacker’
Action 2: Preserve Trigger
Another way to do it would be this trigger:
Condition 1: Always
Action 1: Create Unit group ‘Attacker’
Action 2: Wait 300 seconds
Action 3: Preserve Trigger
Or if you want to make them attack in waves that continually get stronger, just make this kind of trigger:
Condition 1: Elapsed time is 600 seconds (10 minutes)
Action 1: Create Unit group ‘Attacker 1’ (Which consists of weak units)

Question 6: How do I make a bullpup mine?
There is a really easy way to do this. Select the bullpup(s) you want to have mine, and in their properties, set their behavior to ‘mine’. Simple!

Question 7: How are countdown timers set?
Countdown timers seem hard, but they are actually very simple. It involves two actions: “Start Countdown Timer”, and “Modify Countdown Timer”. To start a countdown timer, then you make a trigger, select any players and conditions you want, and select the action “Start Countdown Timer”. It will ask for the seconds, just put it in, and then the name. The name is a little bit hard. Normally, one will think that the time is displayed on default right after the name, like this: “3:02 Until Wave Arrives”. But you must put “%s Until Wave Arrives”. The %s is the time. Don’t forget this. Then after that, make an action “Modify Countdown Timer” and set it to show it. Ok, we have our countdown timer, and its ticking, now what? Well, we somehow have to turn it off when it reaches zero. For this, after the action you just made, we put a wait in. How much was the countdown timer set for? Five minutes? Then we will wait 300 seconds. Or however long the countdown timer was set. Now, another action: “Modify Countdown Timer”. And just tell it to “hide” the countdown timer. You’re done!

Question 8: How do I copy and paste?
When you want to copy a unit, hold the mouse over that until and hold down control, and drag the unit somewhere. There’s your copy! Try it out.

Question 9: Is there a limit on switches?
Yes, you can have a maximum of 16 switches.

Question 10: Is there a limit on triggers?
Although the editor doesn’t stop you when you go over, the limit is 40 triggers per side. If you go over this, then it won’t work.

Question 11: Is there a limit on areas?
Yes, the limit is 32 areas.

ADVANCED FAQ
Question 1: How can I make units guard areas?
Simple. Make a unit group with the unit you want, and set it to guard right after it appears.

Question 2: How can I create a death trigger?
Death triggers are triggers that happen when something dies. Like Andy, for example. You want the game to end when Andy dies. You’ll need a trigger like this:
Condition 1: Side1 commands exactly 0 Andy.
Action 1: End mission with defeat.
Simple, isn’t it?

Question 3: Why do weird things happen when I put an @ in an ecom?
If you’ve ever put an @ in an ecom, it will make a new line and pause the game for a few milliseconds. This might have been fixed in the new release but here is what you do if something weird happens with it.
The @ sign was an escape code for the developers of WI. Nobody knows why it makes a new line, but if you put two of them next to eachother, it will come out as a regular @ with no problems.

Question 4: How do I string levels together in a campaign?
If your mission is part of a campaign (like the story missions in the game), you can have the game load the next mission in the campaign automatically when the current mission ends. You do this by including a "Set Next Mission" TriggerAction in your mission. If you want the game to load a different next mission depending on how the current mission ends, you should include the "Set Next Mission" TriggerAction in the trigger that has the "End Mission" TriggerAction. The name you use with "Set next mission to" is the title you have set in the LevelDoc settings for the next mission (Settings -> Level -> Title) followed by ".lvl". The TriggerAction should look like this:
Set next mission to "My Next Mission.lvl"
Another thing that was brought up by ScottLu was: "The "Set Next Mission" mission name is the first 22 characters of the mission to be linked to, followed by ".lvl". If your mission is less than 22 characters, it is the full name of the mission followed by ".lvl"."

Question 5: Is there a way to put structures into a unit group?
Yes in fact there is, but the editor wasn’t intended to so use this at your own risk. First select any trigger and add an action to it called “create units at location” and create whatever you building you want, at any location (it wont matter). Now try saving and compiling (you don’t have to play it). And when you re-open the editor, go to the unit groups and hopefully somewhere in there will be a cauu# group, with a structure in it. Rename it to something else if you want. Go back to the action you created and delete it. Repeat the process any amount of times.
Note: This may not work in some versions of the editor. The almighty demigods (developers) might fix it.

Question 6: What the heck are persistent variables?
This is a quote from crakerz on the forum explaining persistent variables:

Persistant variables, or pvars, are variables that can store numbers.
Use the Modify persistant variable action to "Set" or create them for the first time. After that, use modify to add to, subtract from or set to a value. To use in a trigger, Test the pvar for the value, or range of value. For example, if you want to have an action happen after the player has been through an area X times:

CONDITONS:
Mission Loaded
ACTIONS:
Comment: Create pvar myCount
Modify persistent variable 'myCount': Set 0

CONDITIONS:
Comment: Check area XING for Player
Area 'XING' contains AtLeast 1 AnyUnit owned by side1
ACTIONS:
Comment: Increment myCount
Modify persistent variable 'myCount': Add 1
Preserve Trigger

CONDITIONS:
Comment: See if player has been to XING ten times
Persistent variable 'myCount' is AtLeast 10
ACTIONS:
Create Unit Group 'AttackForce'

You could reset myCount to zero at this point, and add a Preserve Trigger to the above. Then every ten times (or whatever number you want) the trigger would activate.


Question 7: How can I do an ‘OR’ operator?
A very good answer to this question can be found at:
http://www.handmark.com/warfare/forum/viewtopic.php?t=486&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=30

Question 8: What’s the difference between the difficulties?
Here is a quote from darrinm:
“I want to clarify the difficulty levels. Like you've learned you can test difficulty in a mission to trigger actions to make it easier and/or harder. BUT even if you don't do this, the player's difficulty choice influences a few factors of the game. Here's how it works:
Hard
- no special advantages or disadvantages (this was our internal default setting for most of the development of WI)
Normal bonuses
- decreased build time for player structures
- increased armor for player structures & units
- player can see if enemy is low on power or credits
Easy bonuses
- all Normal bonuses
- increased player unit firepower
- increased value for player's Bullpup Galaxite deliveries
The design concept for the easier difficulty settings was to crudely simulate the advantages that more skilled players have to give less skilled players a boost in ways that wouldn't throw the missions out of wack.”

PostPosted: Tue Mar 02, 2004 7:37 pm    Post subject: Persistant variables Reply with quote

Persistant variables, or pvars, are variables that can store numbers.

Use the Modify persistant variable action to "Set" or create them for the first time. After that, use modify to add to, subtract from or set to a value. To use in a trigger, Test the pvar for the value, or range of value. For example, if you want to have an action happen after the player has been through an area X times:

CONDITONS:
Mission Loaded
ACTIONS:
Comment: Create pvar myCount
Modify persistent variable 'myCount': Set 0


CONDITIONS:
Comment: Check area XING for Player
Area 'XING' contains AtLeast 1 AnyUnit owned by side1
ACTIONS:
Comment: Increment myCount
Modify persistent variable 'myCount': Add 1
Preserve Trigger


CONDITIONS:
Comment: See if player has been to XING ten times
Persistent variable 'myCount' is AtLeast 10
ACTIONS:
Create Unit Group 'AttackForce'


You could reset myCount to zero at this point, and add a Preserve Trigger to the above. Then every ten times (or whatever number you want) the trigger would activate.

Hope this answers the questions

Verdagon, thanks for the FAQ! I have another item concerning mission linking. The "Set Next Mission" mission name is the first 22 characters of the mission to be linked to, followed by ".lvl". If your mission is less than 22 characters, it is the full name of the mission followed by ".lvl".

The available variables are what ever you want them to be.
Have a look at the three demo maps that ship with the editor.

Great job on your missions and on this FAQ. I will "clip" it to my Palm and read it as I go along in the development of my 1st mission.

The only point I can make about the FAQ at this point is this. You should consider making this change. Everywhere you have these lines:

Condition: Comments
Format: Comments: text
Use: No use really…

It should read this:

Condition: Comments
Format: Comments: text
Use: The text does not affect the gameplay and does not show up in the mission at all. Use this feature to make "progamming comments" that explain the intent of the preceeding code. This is similar to the "REM" or remarks that a good programmer provides in his or her code.


Does this make sense? Keep up the great work (Everyone) on the missions and FAQ information.

Okay, I've changed the comments section. To tell you the truth, I'm new to the editor and still learning. If any of you want to put your knowledge and wisdom, tell me and I will put it in.

And carl, thanks for the compliments Very Happy

Another thing to add would be

How do I modify a unit's health midgame?
You can't. You can, however, destroy the unit by creating a group of towers that the player is allied with, but not the other way around.

Condition: Area "Ugly Mofo" has at least 1 any unit owned by side 1
Action: Ally Side 1 with Side Neutral.

Then you could place a group of Side Neutral Towers around the area in which you want to kill the unit, and they would be unable to fight back.

Yeah, this is a good idea that has been used in a number of the created levels out there.

I dont understand why this would be so good, because you would be left with a bunch of neutral towers.
