Re: Problems MODING the new 3.2, cannot add new Cyborg

Hopefully you can manage to get your rebalancing in proper order, so that it might become part of the game. Incidentally, I have looked at your Nexus improvements and plan to merge them, but this will take time. JSON has multiple advantages over CSV: standardisation, which makes it easy to validate...

Re: Problems MODING the new 3.2, cannot add new Cyborg

NoQ , after a bit of practice and all the help I got from y'all here, I started to develop a certain " beginners " degree of proficiency working with " .JSON " files. The only thing I still miss from the old " .TXT " files, is the ability to open them in LibreOfficeCalc for easy comparison and edit...

Re: Balancing Balance

So @devs, I have a feature request. How hard is it to make a 0-100 slider in QT to replace the power buttons on the hosting menu? We're not using Qt anymore. What technology instead of Qt? Just out of curiosity. I just started a project IRL that's using PyQt but I'm not familiar with GUI developmen...

Re: Balancing Balance

So @devs, I have a feature request. How hard is it to make a 0-100 slider in QT to replace the power buttons on the hosting menu? The values of the low, medium and high power buttons are referenced in rules.js as powerType . We could probably just feed that value directly into setPowerModifier and g...

Re: Balancing Balance

1) The maps were drawn based on the current increment. Many cards will be too narrow / short with a larger gain. 2) To remove something from the game is bad, even if it is used by a small number of players. A more successful idea is to replace 3 presets with a flexible change from 0 to 1000. Yes th...

Re: Balancing Balance

Maybe this is a better way of explaining why derricks need to give more power. If we increase the amount of power per derrick it will only affect low oil maps on the low power setting and high oil maps on the high power setting. In other words, the two extreme ends of the power spectrum. All map/pow...

Re: Balancing Balance

The game has the ability to change it with mods. No need to change the game. Who needs a big increase in energy with a mod. It's just necessary that the loading mods work stably. Now it seems to be, but it does not work at all. 4789 PS. if the modes could return the balance of precision from 3.1.5 ...

Re: Balancing Balance

Players want more power on all maps but the power settings are already maxed out. The solution is to raise the amount of power per derrick which is equivalent to "shifting" all of the power settings. no If you want arcade game then turn off power if you want strategy game then learn how to use powe...

Re: Balancing Balance

Nobody plays low power setting on top of maps with already low oil. We’ve been through this before, I think what you mean to say is the high power setting on low oil maps. Low power on low oil maps is absolutely dreadful game play and the balance is way too simple. I do. I know what I mean to say. ...

Re: Balancing Balance

All of this topic revolves around oil or the lack of oil. This has nothing to do with balance and more to do with map editing. If its just map oil distribution make your own maps. The connection isn’t so obvious but oil has a lot to do with balance, even though it affects everything uniformly. I do...

Re: Balancing Balance

95%+ of all multiplayer games currently use the high power setting and the low power setting is rarely used. This means the range of available power settings needs to be shifted. Dunno, people would just play NTW with more power. That should be okay, there are some people who currently like 60 oil ...

Re: Balancing Balance

After studying stats and 3.1.5 game play for a long time I think all balance problems stem from the fact that each derrick needs to produce more power. Specifically, the number of powerPoints for each generator needs to go from 55 --> to something like 100 or 110. In general, this number effects the...

Re: Nexus AI Script Conversion

As others stated, I think you're wasting your time because Nexus doesn't play well and nobody cares about the sentimental value of a deprecated AI. You should focus your effort in making Nullbot better. The language and AI API isn't as relevant as you might think because unit spam with whatever unit...

Re: About bots in Master

Also i notices thats autogame now is not working Because of that, i cannot run AI Tournament on master, and hard to test bots. This is why I stopped developing AI/stats. When default AI was switched to Nullbot sometime around January autogame stopped working meaning we can't easily run balanced sim...

Re: Repainted Jammer model

I swapped it out with the VTOL CB tower in my mod because nobody uses that and the Jammer turret resembles a CB turret so it made even more sense. Although part of me thinks that's not really a true solution.
