Re: Flowfield prototype

If the droid owner does the path/flow computation and then sends it to the other peers over the network, and they can follow this path/flow deterministically from a common point in the future, then that will also work. This would also likely reduce the CPU load a lot, since not everyone then needs ...

Re: A possible new accuracy system

I think that introducing miss radius depending on distance is bad. Spikes in efficiency that can be exploited by putting your army into an invisible zone that mutates continuously as you change and upgrade your weapons does not quite constitute "Strategy by Design" to me. Mmhmm, there would be a sw...

Re: Illuvalar Balancing?

Hi sorry, i don't come here often. The balance I made officially, i think, was for 2.3.8 .
you can try the NRS+ mod for 2.3.9 with tons of new content that the offical release dont have if you want.

Solar panels, parks, burning lasers, condor missiles, speed labs and much more all balanced nicely.

Re: auto fire weapons at appropriate targets

I'm late in this post, but ai.cpp or combat.cpp (or i dont remember) do all that already. Albeit it was not perfect, when i read this bit of code i was impressed on the amount of stuff taken into account to pick a target. I think we had a bug, and maybe even have is still where the AI was so strong ...

Re: New research tech

In effect, it's the exact same as increasing the power produced by the power gen. So there is no need for that :)

I'm in favor of cheaper late game items like the lizard body and a viable balance of the light bodies in general.

Re: @per about accuracy

The committer is the designer. Sorry if you think that there is someone hiding in a cubicle with statistics galore to back up all the changes, that just isn't the case. Heck, I have even made the game have actual stats, where I can dump the data into a file, but, alas, it just wasn't meant to be. I...

Re: @per about accuracy

Oh... and who is the game designer in charge ? Fairly obvious who did the changes, it shows in the commit message. For what it is worth, I do agree that there needs to be LOTS of work on master to fix all the issues that all the changes have caused. No... that's the programmer. I talked about game ...

Re: @per about accuracy

Sorry for the lag. This is directly saying that the next major build will break the support for legacy right ? New stats, creative ways, thinking outside the box... If you had a motivated game designer in the dev team at the moment, I'd be curious. But now it's just scary. I listed all the straight ...

Re: @per about accuracy

because remember, accuracy wasn't whatever % that the weapon had before, either. It was dependent on whatever stood next to it, hitbox sizes and splash damage radius. And I had the patch for that. To make it works as intended. It's not like it was even hard, I made it in 1 afternoon. The only probl...

@per about accuracy

Since you seem to read me at the moment (alleluia) Can you copy that you read this : The damage on the weapon is substracted by the armor. It is a DESIGN choice to allow different weapon family to have various efficiency against various armor type. We cannot, change the damage arbitrarily for balanc...

Re: Lucky shot feature

Well you turned the accuracy at 100%. It's pretty much like removing it. And you intentionally left the accuracy bug there, so even if someone else was trying to use it in a mod, it would be buggus. Are you saying doe, that experienced units will still dodge rockets ? And some of them will miss beca...

This is a personal vision, but I never saw the "research" like actual research.

What I tend to see instead is that I'm part of one of...

Re: Lucky shot feature

Wait, I know there is 3 things. 1 is movement speed, the second is about damage reduction and the third is about damage increase. One of those 2 last is about accuracy. Maybe accuracy raduction and rate of fire ? You make me doubt now.

The ratio is 7%, 6% and 6% per level respectively
