I am creating a 1 player defence.

Player 1- Me.
Player 2- Enemy.
Player 3- Unit selection.

I need help creating this trigger.
Here is what I want to happen.

I am using Scmdraft.

Game countsdown from 20 seconds.
Game creates 4 enemies at spawn. (Player 2)
5 seconds later, 4 more enemies.(Player 2)
5 more seconds, etc... until the 20 seconds is over.

10 second break and a new round starts.

well. lets just say none of that is possible with scm draft. mainly because scmdraft and scmdraft 2 dont have any decent(or even usable) trigger editor.
if you were using say sc extra editor or reg scm editor, i could help you...

and scince im here ill help you anyways...
the thing with defence games is that it requires alot of similar triggers that run on switches and other calls in the game. if you dont understand the following, then post and ill try to explain it better
words in parenthesis are my own comments and are not aplicable to the actual trigger
here are the triggers...

Conditions(player 2)
Switch one(1st lvl switch is set).

Actions:
create 4 unit(of your choice) at location(where you want them).
wait 5000ms(wait 5000 miliseconds or 5 seconds game time).
create 4 unit(of your choice) at location(where you want them).
wait 5000ms(wait 5000 miliseconds or 5 seconds game time).
create 4 unit(of your choice) at location(where you want them).
wait 5000ms(wait 5000 miliseconds or 5 seconds game time).
create 4 unit(of your choice) at location(where you want them).
wait 10000ms(wait 10000 miliseconds or 10 seconds game time).
clear Switch one(turn off lvl 1).
set switch 2(turn on lvl 2).


thats it really. and for successive levels, change the unit and place and switch number accordingly.
i have tried to explain this as clearly as possible.
if anyone is intrested, i may wright a trigger making tutorial. ahhh!
speaking of triggers, does anyone know how to get a capture the flag type map to work?
ive been fighting this map for weeks and cant get it to work. thanks and your welcome to anyone i may have helped. rep!?
