Re: A possible new accuracy system

Five years? %$#@. I'm old :( A short tl;dr of the previous thread. Changing miss radius depending on various values is realistic and attractive, but bad for gameplay and screws up multiplayer balance. Such values may be accuracy upgrades or distances. Let's suppose we're within current game rules ra...

Re: Help needed testing 3.2.x Campaign games!

A little bit off-topic: How is accuracy working actually? I found a thread with a discussion what system should be used to calculate accuracy. But in the end, if I understand it right, accuracy is set to 100% except for the long range. For this range, a value is set in the weapons.js file in stats....

Re: Help needed testing 3.2.x Campaign games!

I made first tests with alpha 06 and due to their horrible accuracy, I found the Mini-Rocket Pod totally useless. I placed an inexperienced Mini-Rocket Pod near to a Repair Facility and let it shoot at a Scorpion body tank. I could have made a cup of coffee in the time it lasts. In campaign most of...

Re: Artifacts/technology redistribution in Campaign.

Even if you give away the Bug body from the start, i doubt it will be useful. In order to make stuff balanced, massive stat changes are necessary. And, at the same time, they are also sufficient, if there is enough of them. While rebalancing weapons to avoid spamming anti-tank rockets throughout the...

Re: Unable to sell Warzone2100?

Currently the Warzone 2100 Project is not a commercial organization; it is merely a fact of collaboration of a few independent people over the internet. They don't make profits, and if they were given money, they don't have a procedure to distribute money among developers. The aforementioned donatio...

Re: Artifacts/technology redistribution in Campaign.

All these ideas you have can be accomplished by tweaking stats. There's no need to break the plot. Eg., buff cyborgs against rockets - the player realizes that lancers are cool, and then bah, a swarm of cyborgs shows up, i believe that pretty much was the intended plot, but they didn't have time to ...

Re: [3.1+] NullBot: an adaptive skirmish AI

Dunno what you mean by endpoints (events?), but almost everything you need to know is in the official API documentation . In my opinion, the best way to teach yourself how things work is to try to write a very simple AI that does almost nothing. Eg., just selects a truck, builds a factory, produces ...

Re: Warzone 2100 3.2.3 crashed

Weird. Could you attach a crash dump? Still, see if deleting (or moving away) mods and maps helps.

Re: [3.1+] NullBot: an adaptive skirmish AI

Please to not post what you do not know for sure! This is known for sure. Even though the author is posting in the wrong thread, which means that he probably didn't notice the NullBot3 work, it's quite obvious that i didn't work on this for years, and i keep saying that my current life circumstance...

Re: Why is warzone now such a s*t?

I don't think we should bump it to 1024x768 because a lot of netbooks with 1024x600 screens were around just a few years ago.

Re: [3.2.3] Alpha Mission 2 won't complete

In 3.1, as well as in 2.3, as well as in all previous versions i remember, there were tons of campaign bugs reported, but i've personally never managed to reproduce them through dozens of campaign playthroughs. Even that bug in mission 2, as far as i remember, needs some pre-conditions to reproduce,...

Explain recycled experience.

It takes a lot of time for a new player to realize that recycling your droids doesn't waste experience, but instead recycled experience is transfered to newly produced units. This is mostly important in campaign. Suggestion: in the production tab, draw the highest recycled experience icon near every...
