Re: [3.0] Aviation ruleset

Lots of progress up to the freshly released fc-aviation 3.0-0.6 ( mpdl ). Some highlights: ⋅ Submersibles can now surface (via convert_to); while on the surface, they get 2 move points instead of 1, and (after the invention of Autogyro) additional vision range, but they're not stealthy and...

I thought of that, but what if it's on a base or carrier? Or in a city and targeting an invading stack just outside?

Missile bombard combination

In 3.0 it appears that units with "Bombarder" flag and "Missile" unitclass flag are not destroyed after completing a bombard attack. (In 3.1, AFAICT from the announcements, there's a "Suicide Attack" action but not a "Suicide Bombard".) I would like to have a ...

Re: [3.0] Aviation ruleset

Well, it turned out that the way I'd done things with attack actionenablers caused rather overzealous stackprotect, making war basically impossible. (I've submitted a feature request for a way to deal with that.) So I've worked around it for now by going back to targets/Unreachable, meaning that air...

Re: More flexible Attack_Bonus (and Range)

City_Adjacent (search any city adjacent to the defender's tile) could also work. "CityTile", "Center", "Adjacent" ? AIUI that just tests that you are adjacent to a city; I don't see how to combine it with "and that city contains building X". Unless having bot...

More flexible Attack_Bonus (and Range)

In my Aviation ruleset I want to be able to have a building Sector Control , whose effect is "50% attack bonus to friendly units attacking Air units within the city's borders (i.e. City_Radius_Sq)". There are two things I would need to make that possible: ⋅ Defender unit reqs for...

Re: [3.0] Aviation ruleset

Can you post here some game screenshots? Just that ppl get an idea of your ruleset with new units on a glance. Sadly I forgot to grab any screenshots during the 2.6 game, but I just loaded it up, picked louis94's side ('cos he had a lot more planes than me at the end) and shuffled a few units about...

Re: [3.0] Aviation ruleset

I've ported to 3.0, and gone Combat_Rounds_Mad! There are now no bombarding air units — every aircraft, whether fighter or bomber, has Combat_Rounds; fighters and attackers have quite small CR values because attacking doesn't end their turn. I've also addressed some of the other feedback and issues ...

Re: [2.6] Aviation ruleset

So let me share my first impressions on the strategy: Thank you for these, they're very useful. And thank you for the test game :) Settlers costing 1 and creating cities at size 2 means that early growth is very exponential. You get 3 worked tiles by spending just one. The best early game strategy ...

Re: [2.6] Aviation ruleset

I've finished my first balancing pass (I've been calculating lots of combat odds tables) and released version 2.6-0.3. Besides lots of unit strength changes, the biggest change in this version is that most bomber-ish units now use Bombarder attacks. The ones that don't are either Attackers (which do...
