Re: Range orders and accuracy

I agree with that, I do understand that we want to keep the campaign as true to the original as possible. But we also try hard to keep the multiplayer tech tree as it is. It would be the job of a modder to make a new techtree... So i dont really see the point of keeping 2 very similar set of stats f...

Re: Range orders and accuracy

I explained in the ticket why you cannot. In absence of accuracy, the only rational balance lever is ROF. And even that is strongly used as a flavor stat (MG vs cannon vs rocket ROF). So as the first move to temporarily balance this game, i suggest... to move the machine gun as the last weapon in th...

Re: Edit the Tech Tree

You can add naval units to the game, and build them in factories adjacent to water. But 1- The AI for them is garbage, the AI is not programmed to understand that there is 2 continent. To be exact, if a boat unit see a ground unit, it will start to move along the coast to go around the river to reac...

Re: Unit designer limit

I wonder if large bodies should be more expensive or small bodies stronger, so people don't just pick the largest possible bodies most of the time. Yes obviously. We'd need a mixed nash equilibrium (also known as rock paper scissor) around body weight : heavy > medium > light > heavy This is achiev...

The same applies to flak cannon that benefits from cannon upgrades.
I doubt that. AA weapons have their own research line. Unless you meant it's less expensive to research when you already have cannons.

Re: Unit designer limit

On a balance point of view, every weapons are heavy. The only exception is the smg and tmg, but those 2 are obsolete before you get any body.

Preventing them from mounting on an heavy body would be a huge nerf on any of those weapons. It imply a lot of changes in the game for this to be feasible.

Re: Research timeout

I agree with this suggestion. Little tweak on it : Each research automatically conduct 20% of their research time no matter if clicked or not or how many research lab you got as soon as they are available. This way the pace of the game stay the same, but clicking any time during that first 20% would...

Re: Range orders and accuracy

Hi, you do this for nothing, the accuracy is bugged since the 3.0 branch, the value in the weapon stat does not reflect the accuracy of a weapon.

Having the AI use the range as if it was meaningful will just further more obfuscate the bug.

Re: Release 3.3.0 beta 1

Does modders have ability to set the accuracy nowaday ? Or is it still buggy out of pure lazyness ?

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 ...
