New system technical levels

Post by andrvaut » 05 Jul 2019, 18:01

The addition of T4 is currently being discussed on the github.But it seems to me that such a change is not a necessary half-measure.
We have 5 sets of starting technologies:
  • T1 without base
  • T1 with a small base
  • T1 with full base
  • T2
  • T3
All sets are not synchronized.
If we take the T1 without bases as the base, then at the start of the T1 with a small base, later exploration of the fire is given, but there is no basic research of the bullets.
T1 with a full base have a lag in strength and air defense.
About T2 and T3 I am silent. The difference between branches can be more than 10 minutes.

As a result, an attempt to create a balance for some starting settings will break it with others.

My suggestion:
  • Remove the connection level of the base and technical level.
  • Remove T *
  • Add a slider / field that can be set time. At this time, determine the available technology.
The order and time of availability of technology can be for hardcodes, but it is better to build it automatically so that it changes when using mods.

If the map maker has not defined small bases and full bases then this topic is out of touch with maps.
I do note on some maps they do not have a half base only a full base.
So choosing a Half Base is not a actual function that works.
There are even maps without bases defined they only have a HQ.

No bases is pretty useful for NTW Maps. You can build alot of oils and possibly take your opponents oils too.
Apologies if i dont see your post

Maybe I didn’t explain what I propose to change.

Now we have the power of weapons depends on the selected starting settings. Since the studies are not issued in chronological order.
http://betaguide.wz2100.net/Research.php
On this page, the calculated time that you want to explore at startup without bases.

Now we recall the studies that are issued at the start with the base: Repair Facility, Mortar, Heavy Machinegun.
But earlier studies: Composite Alloys, Synaptic Link Data Analysis Mk2, HE Rockets Mk2 and many others are not issued ...
As a result, we have two contradictory regimes:
In one, Heavy Machinegun meets with Light Cannon without improvements.
In the second Heavy Machinegun meets with Medium Cannon (almost)

Like this? There will be no research differences between no bases, bases, and advanced bases. Only small issue is that if we want the combat engineer to be available on T1 bases and advanced bases it will necessitate early access to the other cyborgs as the relevant weapons get researched. Which my current work is doing at the moment.

Yes, I mean it in this point.
