Re: Any way to select AI in 3.x RC?

LOL. It was so simple I can't believe I couldn't find it myself. Thanks!

Any way to select AI in 3.x RC?

Okay So I downloaded the latest release candidate a couple weeks ago and I swear I saw something somewhere that mentioned AI choices. For the life of me I cannot find it anywhere now. Is there any way in the 3.x latest RC to select a different AI? The one I'm using now is a cream puff, even when he ...

Re: CB against mobile units...

Possible compromise: Have CB towers designate an enemy battery for a limited period -slightly longer than it takes to reload an Archangel, perhaps- after the incoming fire registers. After that, they have to wait for the next shot. Another balance idea (much of which I believe is already implemente...

Re: CB against mobile units...

What you're suggesting is basically to not allow CB towers to pinpoint mobile artillery. Not at all. What he is proposing is a little bit of realism. Mobile artillery is supposed to have the advantage of shoot-and-scoot over stationary artillery. However, there are real-life trade offs. Whether or ...

Re: 200 Skirmish Maps Tested in 2.3 Beta 9

Of the list above, I will recommend a few maps that I have played in v2.3.6. I Recommend for Skirmish 4c-Memonia9.wz - This map has lots of interesting terrain, defensible passes, oil to fight over in strategic locations. (There are other Memonia maps, all of which are similar.) 8c-threegorgesM.wz S...

This has been the case for quite some time now, at least as long as the last year.

Re: AI Bases?

I have been thinking about adding code to make the AI build up the base it has in Advanced Bases when difficulty is set to low and start bases to less than advanced, since this makes the AI busy doing stuff other than attacking. If the map editor were to support it, it might also be possible to dra...

Re: AI Bases?

When you make your own asymmetrical map, build your ideal defenses in the AI base areas. You are not limited by any tech level. But only put an HQ in your player base area. That way when you select Start with Advanced Bases , only the HQ will appear in your base and you can build the rest as you lik...

Re: AI Bases?

Your best bet would be to grab a map that is asymmetrical with respect to bases and play with the Start with Advanced Bases option enabled. If you want a huge challenge , do not peek at the map I share with you here, and start the game with you as Player 1 and the AI as Player 0. Set the initial tec...

Re: Experiencing the Super Transport in MP & SKI - eh ?

Why not balance both the Cyborg Transport and Super Transport by the only metric that would actually be used in real life--maximum cargo weight? IIRC, every non-cyborg unit in Warzone already has a weight calculated for it don't they? So what remains is assign weights to super and regular cyborgs an...

Re: Experiencing the Super Transport in MP & SKI - eh ?

The blasted thing cannot hold more than 3 heavy tanks, so it's useless. If I want to transport Cyborgs, I'll simply build a Cyborg transport where the ratio is 1 Transport to a 10 unit payload. Building a transport with a ratio of 1 transport to a 3 unit payload is a waste of time and power.

Re: and one more = vallispass

:lecture: Lav_Coyote has set this map up well for skirmish play. I just spent the day playing sort of my own "challenge" on this map, which I thought was fun enough and challenging enough to share with others. By challenge here I do not mean the in-game challenges in Warzone v2.3, I just mean a scen...

Re: 3.0-beta 2 is released!

Okay back on topic people!

I've posted a couple of new issues I've encountered in 3.0. The first issue may also be in v2.3.x. Has anyone else seen either of these before?
  1. Cannot Transfer Units to Decimated AI Ally
  2. Water appears in mountain recesses after loading saved game
