Dead Simple like mechanics in UDMF

I've been wondering if you can create Dead Simple like mechanics, where after killing for example 5 hell knights, the floor will lower. i already know how to make actions happen after picking up or killing a monster, but I was wondering if you can do it with multiple.

You can do it with a script using ThingCount:
Code: Select allExpand view
#include "zcommon.acs"

Script 1 OPEN
    While(ThingCountName("HellKnight",0)>0) {Delay(1);}
    //Do stuff once all hell knights are dead

And, just to add to that, if you do it by tid (thing tag), then it doesn't even have to be all hell knights - just the ones that have the specified tag. In fact, the enemies with tag can be of different types too.
