Re: national units

I think this is a good idea. it would be very cool to be able to create historical armies, even if the abilities of certain types were the same. this means just different artwork to represent different nationalities/eras. of course also representing those special unit abilities to create the flavor ...

Re: seige tower

also moving one makes it pretty ineffective. most games won't last that long unless it is a special scenario, or they can be built near the walls.

we have quite a few things that already fit this description,,, by the time they are built and can be moved, the game is decided or over.

Re: new structure_ gates

good ideas, guys! I was thinking how to make these different from towers. the purpose of towers is healing and firing and your movement is used up to enter. maybe it should cost all movement to leave a tower as well? tower upgrades could be more healing per turn, and fewer movement points lost when ...

Structure: Gate - IMPLEMENTED

we can build walls and keep the enemy out but this also keeps the good guys in. how about gates. these would allow friendlies to pass thru but keep enemies out. three types 1: wooden gateway with wooden gates. 2: stone gateway with iron bound gates 3: stone gateway with portcullis. if gates are clos...

Re: betrayal of king Maximus

I've played this a lot and finally won one. probably 20 some tries. the troops above are sacrificial. use them to hurt the enemy can and draw them away from your stronghold. if you convert 0-1 elephant you lose. if you convert 2 elephants and build healers and workers and fill your territory with to...

Re: Special items/weapons, and marketplace

I think a RPG aspect to this game would be great! how complex can you do it? need an option to turn heroes on and off for all games. buy hero (limit 1?, only play one at a time?) like any other upgrade. buy hero upgrades for armor,bow, inf, cav abilities, not weapons or armor. find artifacts(weapons...

Re: attack by levin

thanks. I just beat it. took 6 tries. apparently the game is so well balanced winning is determined by whether the gun boat in the middle destroys one of the cav or one of the the cav barracks or not. on the first 5 tries, I lost one or the other. on my last try, his shot went wild. I took a lot of ...

Re: Enable upgrades?

I have 28 upgrades. I think it means if you select "10", it will randomly select 10 upgrades from my list of 28.

that's my guess :)

I find no documentation on what the "*" next to movement means. I assume it must mean variable movement. please document this.

Re: effects

I agree. no reason to buy them for a one shot deal, unless all other advancements are already bought.

but once a game makes them a cool resource.

Re: ai melee camera

I had thought of the jerkiness of the camera. that's why I thought perhaps dividing the map into quarters or so. this would be a "compromise" solution. perhaps 5 camera positions. 4quarters and an equal sized quarter focused around the center. this would minimize camera movement and allow a closer v...

Re: ai melee camera

just in case I was confusing, I thought I'd ask again. when we gain a tech, the camera goes to the building it was created in. can you do this during the AI turn for combat? especially with a big game, its tedious to search the whole board to see what the AI has done, and what casualties have happen...

Re: Gems - ANSWERED

to be excited about getting gems and upgrades is pretty cool.

however there are too many games out there where the first scenario shows a promising game, then to win the second game you have to purchase in-game upgrades to advance.

Re: Attacking: Melee attacks to diagonal tiles - ANSWERED

well, this is a medieval game and things were slow, ponderous, and hard to control.

now if this were during the time of Frederick the Great, it would have to be by nation, and from Napoleon on, all could move on the diagonal.

I vote to leave it as is, it adds flavor.

Re: Any need on inventing an Impossible AI?

here's a few thoughts. the first that pops to mind is have 3 or so difficulty levels incorporating your ideas. second would be to buy with gems your ideas either as a per game purchase, or select to use per game once purchased. third would be to have simple ( ;) ) "AI" builder where you have sliders...

ai melee camera

first let me say this is a great game! congrats and thanks! I hope this is the correct place to put this, and I have not seen any other requests. I would like the camera to track on the current AI melee. at the present the camera remains stationary. not only do we miss out on the cool action, but it...
