Creating Unit stat Damage and Defence % help

Unread post by BugMeNot »

I need to set up a Damage and Defence Percentage tooltips for units in my map. Not sure if i need to have a system or edit unit stats
An example of what im trying to do is> Footman deals> 120% of damage to medium armor, 100% to heavy, 60% to fortified
Footman damage taken> 120% from magic, 100% from siege, 80% from normal

Im not sure if i have to set up triggers for damage and defence types and what would they be?
or if editor already has a "standard" percentage rate units take and i simply just need to write in for tooltips

Advanced --> Gameplay Constants

Makes your map require TFT, but can be converted.

ok thanks, so in combat damage bonuses, for each attack and defence type is listed a 1. if i were to change this to 2, then it would be at 200% right and 1.3 would be 130%?

Yup. And 0.7 would be 70%

Percentages are like that. Fraction of a whole. x% = x/100

Ok i now have the knowledge of how to change this but ran into another problem. When going to advance>gameinterface>generaltext normal damage, it seems its limiting me the space i need to add this>
Damage:
200% Fortified
100% Heavy
100% Light
50% Normal
25% Magic and this is even without the color coding text. I know this can be done because I have seen in multiple maps before such as: Castle fight and Legion Td

Please tell me if you know the way around this and perhaps test it, thanks!

We talked about the txt file you have to edit yesterday in Clan 3ICE. I now looked up its proper name:
war3mapSkin.txt - No limits there.

Export it from your map, edit it, then import it. (And don't forget to change the path. - Delete "war3mapimported" from it.)

p.s.: [Shift+double click] in the editor should also turn off limits, but I prefer to edit war3mapSkin.txt directly, because a text editor has more features than a simple textbox.
