varType="unittype" was never used in any other triggers.  It was always varType="unit".  This sets the field/variable type.

Yes, unittype is used in units in area... It listes all units + Stuff like all, and infentry and Calvery etc.

This is Units in Area.  It uses varType="unit"

<Condition name="$$22299$$Units in Area">
      <Param name="DstObject" dispName="$$22300$$Center Unit" VarType="unit">default</Param>
      <Param name="Player" dispName="$$22301$$Player" VarType="player">0</Param>
      <Param name="UnitType" dispName="$$22302$$Unit Type" VarType="string">Unit</Param>
      <Param name="Dist" dispName="$$22303$$Radius" VarType="float">10</Param>
      <Param name="Op" dispName="$$22297$$Operator" VarType="operator">==</Param>
      <Param name="Count" dispName="$$22304$$Count" VarType="float">1</Param>
      <Expression>trCountUnitsInArea("%DstObject%",%Player%,"%UnitType%",%Dist%) %Op% %Count%</Expression>
   </Condition>

Hi Guys,

Thank you Random22 for working on this trigger and thank you pftq for helping.

I need this trigger to create many flares on the mini map all at once at all locations for specific Unit Type.

So if I have 20 Musketeers around the map I need a flare for each one of them producing 20 flares all at once.

I am assuming we can base this trigger on Unit Type in area except that the area is the entire map, and this effect needs to run in a loop, find all the Units for the specified Unit Type and flare all of them.

Hope this clears it and thank you for your help.

Then you are using the wrong approach.  What you need is 20 different flares (or however many units there are of that type).  You can't use just one flare command for that and it also requires kbunitquery.

Something along the lines of this:
Code:
<Effect name="Flare Unit Type in Area (Center Unit)">
<Param name="Object" dispName="Center Unit" varType="unit">default</Param>
<Param name="Dst" dispName="Radius" varType="string">10.0</Param>
<Param name="UnitId" dispName="Unit Type ID (Optional)" varType="string">-1</Param>
<Param name="FromPlayer" dispName="From Player or 99 for ALL" varType="string">99</Param>
<Param name="ForPlayer" dispName="Flare Player or 99 for ALL" varType="string">99</Param>
<Param name="Dur" dispName="Duration" varType="float">1.0</Param>
<Param name="Booler" dispName="Include Center Unit" varType="bool">false</Param>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("convarea", 0);</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("ffweho",0);</Command>
<Command>if(%FromPlayer%!=99) trQuestVarSet("vroom", %FromPlayer%);</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("warthog", 0);</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("zeep", 0);</Command>
<Command>if(%UnitId%>=0) {</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("zeep", %UnitId%);</Command>
<Command>}</Command>
<Command>if(0>%UnitId%) {</Command>
<Command>while(kbGetUnitTypeName(trQuestVarGet("zeep"))!="All") {</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("zeep", trQuestVarGet("zeep")+1);</Command>
<Command>}}</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("lastpl", xsGetContextPlayer());</Command>
<Command>xsSetContextPlayer(0);</Command>
<Command>kbLookAtAllUnitsOnMap();</Command>
<Command>if(%FromPlayer%!=99) trQuestVarSet("blarg",%FromPlayer%);</Command>
<Command>if(%FromPlayer%==99) {</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("blarg",0);</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("vroom",12);</Command>
<Command>}</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("i",trQuestVarGet("blarg"));</Command>
<Command>while(trQuestVarGet("vroom")>=trQuestVarGet("i")) {</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("convarea", kbUnitQueryCreate("convarea"));</Command>
<Command>kbUnitQuerySetPlayerID(trQuestVarGet("convarea"), trQuestVarGet("i"));</Command>
<Command>kbUnitQuerySetUnitType(trQuestVarGet("convarea"), trQuestVarGet("zeep"));</Command>
<Command>kbUnitQuerySetPosition(trQuestVarGet("convarea"), kbGetBlockPosition(""+1*%Object%));</Command>
<Command>kbUnitQuerySetMaximumDistance(trQuestVarGet("convarea"), %Dst%);</Command>
<Command>kbUnitQuerySetAscendingSort(trQuestVarGet("convarea"), true);</Command>
<Command>kbUnitQueryResetResults(trQuestVarGet("convarea"));</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("warthog", kbUnitQueryExecute(trQuestVarGet("convarea")));</Command>
<Command>while(trQuestVarGet("warthog")>0) {</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("warthog", trQuestVarGet("warthog")-1);</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("ffweho", kbUnitQueryGetResult(trQuestVarGet("convarea"), trQuestVarGet("warthog")));</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("ffweho2", trQuestVarGet("ffweho"));</Command>
<Command>if(%Booler%==true) {</Command>
<Command>if(trQuestVarGet("ffweho2")==kbGetBlockID(""+1*%Object%)) {trQuestVarSet("ffweho2", trQuestVarGet("ffweho")+1);}}</Command>
<Command>if(trQuestVarGet("ffweho2")!=kbGetBlockID(""+1*%Object%)) {</Command>
<Command>trMinimapFlare(%ForPlayer%, %Dur%, kbGetBlockPosition(""+1*trQuestVarGet("ffweho")), false);</Command>
<Command>}}</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("i", trQuestVarGet("i")+1);}</Command>
<Command>xsSetContextPlayer(trQuestVarGet("lastpl"));</Command>
</Effect>

Let me know what exactly happens with this - it's the right approach but I may have forgotten something (it's been a while).

Can you help me with this trigger?

Code:
  <Effect name="Kill All Units In Area (Center Unit)">
<Param name="Object" dispName="Center Unit" varType="unit">default</Param>

    <Command>trQuestVarSet("KillyomomINAREA", 0);</Command>
<Command>while(1500>=trQuestVarGet("KillyomomINAREA")) {</Command>
<Command>trUnitSelectClear();</Command>
    <Command loop="" loopParm="SrcObject">trUnitSelect (""+kbGetProtoUnitName(trQuestVarGet("KillyomomINAREA")));</Command>
    <Command>trUnitDelete(false);</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("KillyomomINAREA", trQuestVarGet("KillyomomINAREA")+1);}</Command>

What are you using it for? A much better solution (less memory-intensive) is to just use Change Units in Area.  Change the units to an object you don't use much (like an Invisible Target) and modify it to 0 HP or lifespan.

I see.. and the Damage Units in Area doesn't work right? Forgot about that.  The code should be similar to the Flare.  Except of course we start killing them instead of flaring their locations...

Code:
<Effect name="Kill Units in Area (Center Unit)">
<Param name="Object" dispName="Center Unit" varType="unit">default</Param>
<Param name="Dst" dispName="Radius" varType="string">10.0</Param>

<Param name="FromPlayer" dispName="From Player or 99 for ALL" varType="string">99</Param>
<Param name="Booler" dispName="Include Center Unit" varType="bool">false</Param>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("convarea", 0);</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("ffweho",0);</Command>
<Command>if(%FromPlayer%!=99) trQuestVarSet("vroom", %FromPlayer%);</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("warthog", 0);</Command>
<Command>trQuestVarSet("zeep", 0);</Command>

pftq,

Got any trigger ideas? Im almost out. I've got like 35 in the set. (10 Conditions, 25 Effects).

Do you see anything wrong with this?

Code:
<Effect name="Grant Resources For All">
<Param name="ResName" dispName="Resource" varType="resource">food</Param>
<Param name="Amount" dispName="Amount" varType="long">100</Param>
 <Command>for(i=1>8){<command>
<Command>trPlayerGrantResource(i, "%ResName%", %Ammount%)}</Command>

Thanks

Yes - do not use variables.  Otherwise the trigger can only be used once (because you can't declare variables multiple times).

Use QV or just type it out for each player.  Also you're missing a ';'
