Title: Site News N° 3
Post by: moyack on December 09, 2012, 11:41:49 PM
(https://wc3modding.info/MGalleryItem.php?id=76)

Hello again my fellow Blizzmodders:

I know it's been a while without posting news, and it gives the impression that nothing has happened here, but we move silently to offer better and better stuff.

New resources:

There's a lot of new stuff in the resource section:

Latest Models
[smg id=12 type=album]We're featuring some models from the War of the Three Hammers Project (WotTH) which were in the oblivion in wc3c.net. They have been fixed and now they're ready to be used in your project.

Latest Systems
[smg id=5 type=album]Just to remember: Systems are a set of code and abilities integrated to add, improve  or manage any new or current feature in WC3. So no spells goes here.

Latest Spells
[smg id=4 type=album]

Latest Maps
[smg id=10 type=album]

New BBCodes!!
As we now, you could have a tutorial submitted in other site and you want to host it here too. Thinking that you've done this in vBulletin boards, we've created some bbcodes to make the tutorial importation easier.

BTABLE
For tables you can use the [btable] bbcode to replace the [table] bbcode.
Examples: Source...
Code: [Select]
[btable]This is a text inside a boxed table. It could serve as a box for a text[/btable]
[btable=Table title]This btable can have a title... YEAHH!![/btable]
[btable=sectioned table]This[c]btable[r]uses[c]vBulletin style!![/btable]

Result...
This is a text inside a boxed table. It could serve as a box for a text
[btable=Table title]This btable can have a title... YEAHH!!
[btable=sectioned table]This[c]btable[r]uses[c]vBulletin style!![/btable]

GOTO and POINT
These bbcodes are useful to make an index:
source...
Code: [Select]
[goto=part1]This is the part 1[/goto]







[point]part1[/point]You arrived to part 1...

result...
This is the part 1







You arrived to part 1...

Trigger

This is the one for GUI triggering. It's WIP, but you can use it to separate the trigger text. As soon as it evolves, you'll see the looking improvements without touching anything.

Source...
Code: [Select]
[trigger]UFS Add Unit
    Events
        Game - UnitIndexEvent becomes Equal to 1.00
    Conditions
        (UDexUnits[UDex] is A Hero) Equal to False
    Actions
        Set TempUnit = UDexUnits[UDex]
        Custom script:   set udg_TempInt = GetUnitTypeId(udg_TempUnit)
        Set Boolean = (Load 0 of TempInt from Hashtable)
        If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            If - Conditions
                Boolean Equal to True
            Then - Actions
                Unit - Add ufsVAR_FuseAbility to UDexUnits[UDex]
            Else - Actions
[/trigger]

Result...
UFS Add Unit
    Events
        Game - UnitIndexEvent becomes Equal to 1.00
    Conditions
        (UDexUnits[UDex] is A Hero) Equal to False
    Actions
        Set TempUnit = UDexUnits[UDex]
        Custom script:  set udg_TempInt = GetUnitTypeId(udg_TempUnit)
        Set Boolean = (Load 0 of TempInt from Hashtable)
        If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            If - Conditions
                Boolean Equal to True
            Then - Actions
                Unit - Add ufsVAR_FuseAbility to UDexUnits[UDex]
            Else - Actions

lcode

This is one of my favorite bbcodes. It shows code in a line, perfect to emphazise it from a normal text. The advantage is that it takes advantage of highlight engine in this site, so you can define the highlight you require. Let's see some examples:

Source...
Code: [Select]
PHP code: [lcode=php]echo 'this is a test in php'; $bla = array(1, 2, 3);[/lcode]
Visual Basic code (vb): [lcode=vb]Dim a, b, c, d As Integer 'I love comments[/lcode]
vJASS code: [lcode=jass]private constant function relol takes unit u returns group // nice!![/lcode]
LUA code: [lcode=lua]dofile("findpath.lua")
if path==0 or path=="" then
path = "."
end --WOOAHH!! I can multiline too!!![/lcode]
And if you don't define any language, it will render it as a monospace text: [lcode]This is a monospace text[/lcode]

Result...

PHP code: echo 'this is a test in php'; $bla = array(1, 2, 3);
Visual Basic code (vb): Dim a, b, c, d As Integer 'I love comments
vJASS code: private constant function relol takes unit u returns group // nice!!
LUA code: dofile("findpath.lua")
if path==0 or path=="" then
        path = "."
end --WOOAHH!! I can multiline too!!!

And if you don't define any language, it will render it as a monospace text: This is a monospace text

Spoiler

Spoiler is used to hide content and control the reading of text in post. Here's some examples:
Source:
Code: [Select]
[spoiler]This text is hidden[/spoiler]
[spoiler=spoiler with title]This text is hidden[/spoiler]

Result:
This text is hidden
spoiler with title
This text is hidden

YouTube

YouTube tags allow to to stream videos which are uploaded to Youtube in Blizzardmodding! Heres an example:
Source:
Code: [Select]
[youtube=Url of video goes here]A title text or nothing[/youtube]
Result:
[youtube=http://youtu.be/1M1uSiuBrDE]Here you can put a text http://youtu.be/1M1uSiuBrDE ()[/youtube]

[/btable]

New Features

Social Groups

Well, we have a little new feature which allows you, the Blizzmodders, to socialize and interact with your fellow Blizzmodders in a better way. By using the all new Social Groups. Here, you can create groups for any purpose, may it be a team for a project, a place to share a common interest, or any other reason in your mind. Groups may be joined by anyone, without restrictions (perhaps?). Here are a few good bunch of groups you could join:

(https://wc3modding.info/MGalleryItem.php?id=138)

The Blizzmod Fans/Blizzmodders Group ()

(https://wc3modding.info/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi0.wp.com%2Fiamarg.com%2Fwp-content%2Fthemes%2Fcomicpress-ARG-2.0%2Fimages%2Favatars%2FARGAVATARS%2FARGavatar009.jpg&hash=86293064d768c3dea6a7c236576ddc2c45a7dfa9)

The Random Gibberish Group ()

Dont hesitate to create your own groups, and stay tuned for future updates!

New Forums

I've made some new forums which are up, they are two forums, which you can see below:

Forum Games (
)

The Forum Games forum allows Blizzmodders to play text-based games, which do not fall in the roleplaying category. A small example is "I ask a question, you answer it and make a new question" theme. It does not have anything related roleplaying related to it, so it counts as a forum game. We dont have any hard basis on this, but common sense would give you a hunch on which forums are appropriate. Be sure to check it out!

Game Development (
)

The Game Development allows modders to turn into game developers, which is an extremely daunting field. Here, Blizzmodders can discuss their recent game development ventures, ask help in that venture and discuss their own ideas. Be advised that this forum should and is not related to Blizzard modding as a whole, which includes WarCraft and/or StarCraft games.

Wc3Jass' New Look

As announced on wc3jass, we have gotten a new look for it. Why? Quoting moyack:

Quote
The issue was it implied a lot of load in the server because it made some excessive calls to the server, and it's very likely people noticed it took 3-5 seconds to load... plain text.

This theme is based in the native one, which is faster. Now you should notice more speed in the load time but keeping the feeling as similar as possible like the previous theme.

This theme promises to be a faster, more efficient one than before. You may check out the full thread here (
).



Well, I think it's all for now. If you have any comments or suggestion about new bbcodces to implement, just let me know here. Hugs,

Moyack

If you have suggestions about the appearance, just pop out here :D

Another example: with time... and without title.

On the appearance, maybe you could make it like the box in THW. The title would be inline with the line at the upper left corner.
