Psuedo Health for Textboxes [and other mechanics for tower defense]

Ok, then let’s avoid that for now.

you could literally put something destructible behind it and wire it to where the text disappears when it’s destroyed

But props literally can’t respawn.

Dude, the thing has no actual health. It has fake health and is a texbox.

And we damage it using blocks or counters.

you could put 10000000 props and wire it to destroyed - show prop
but that would take up a lot of memory
so nevermind i guess

5k prop limit and that’s too much memory and sentry limit and no

You literally don’t have enough memory for even 100000 wire repeaters.

100,000 memory limit, after all

it was a joke, nobody would actually put 10000000 props( mainly bc, like you said, it isnt possible

I got that, it’s just that this is really hard and we are discussing abstract concepts and there is no simple solution.

first of all, I actually didn’t know
second of all(sorry) i didn’t completely read the post and see that you were talking about a sentry
third of all sorry I won’t post ideas on the topic again since I don’t understand the concept completely

[Ok, let’s ignore the fact that sentries are not involved.]

Explain the for loop more.

You can ask for us to explain it to you if you want to help. Just don’t post answers that you know are wrong.

i didn’t know
ive already explained that

Ok. We don’t have to changed the number with a for loop. With a trick of number theory, we can just multiply by the base, which is 2 in this case. However, you do need a for loop to convert to text.

oh sorry i was talking to getrithekd

It’s okay.

Cassius asked me to explain the for loop more.
