[2.6] Augmented ruleset modpack

Postby Wahazar » Mon Dec 24, 2018 3:01 pm

I have a gift for you all, who want a challenging ruleset for long winter evenings: augmented ruleset together with additional graphics.

This work is a continuations of advanced ruleset modpack and neolithic ruleset, these projects were combined together, rewritten to version 2.6 of freeciv and extended with new techs, wonders, building and units.

I will describe it briefly here:

  • New techs, including some facultative tech branches - not required for mainstream technology tree, but offering some better units or optional wonders/buildings.
  • Completely refurbished system of distinctive tiers of military unit classes: Small Land, Infantry, Light Cavalry, Heavy Cavalry, Big Land.
  • Turrets, Torpedoes, Bombs can be mounted on ships, airplanes etc.
  • Unit HP is related to its armor/persistence, FP depend on weapon era (1 - melee, 2 - gunpowder, 3 - machine gun/explosives, 4 - rocketry/big guns).
  • Terrain movement is more challenging, mountains w/o roads accessible only for workers or special (Small Land class) units, rivers are not a roads for regular units.
  • New buildings and wonders, adopted to the new technology tree.
  • Three faith systems, you need to choose wisely, because most of religion-related improvements/wonders can't coexists in same city/state.
  • New governments (First Republic, Direct Democracy, Thalassocracy, Fascism) and altered governments properties, smooth upkeep changes after revolution.

You start with few Tribe units - they are universal, can act like workers/settlers (at the beginning only roads can be constructed, some advances are required to irrigate/mine),
they can fight with other units (but not conquer towns), build a town or be added to the town.

You need Tribe Hut in the town to make new Tribe units - they cost only one population (settlers: two), thus are convenient to fast growth, but once you learn Agricultural Farming, Tribes are no longer available (but you can make City Hall, which may increase city radius, and proceed to Despotism, which offer Martial Law and larger empire ).

Initial government is Tribalism - corruption is relatively high but flat, tax changes are limited and there is no martial law while people are unhappy if you rule too much cities, and science/gold output is decreased.
You need to build Palace by yourself, to change gov. to Despotism
(but it is not a bad news - at least you can decide where the best place for your Capital is, when you already claimed some land).

Whole modpack was done under GPL licence and is hosted by GitHub:
https://github.com/Wahazar/augmented2

Thanks to the Cazfi help, modpack can be installed by Freeciv Modpack Installer utility: copy this link:
http://149.156.194.203/~mczapkie/fc/aug ... d2.modpack
and paste to the Modpack Installer

Alternative manual installation instructions for github repo: extract files from augmented2-master and copy them all (*.tilespec, augmented2.serv and augmented2 directory with its content) into appropriate freeciv/data directory,
you may find it for example in Document and Settings\You\Local Settings\Application Data\Freeciv-2.6.0*\data if you have MS Windows,
so the proper structure is:
\data\augmented2.serv
\data\augmentedi.tilespec
\data\augmentedis.tilespec
\data\augmented2\...
doc is only informative.
Alternatively you can copy it to .freeciv/2.6/ directory.


To run modpack, you can choose augmented2 from ruleset pull down menu, and accept proposed tileset.

Whole ruleset is optimized for hex topology and its graphics are compatible with hexemplio or isohex tilesets.
It is strongly recommended to use augmentedi or augmentedis tilesets, otherwise you will see only alternative and misleading graphics, if any.
Go for 'local options' and choose 'augmentedi' or 'augmentedis' from the list for iso hex topology.
Augmentedi is a default tileset, if city window is too large, choose smaller tiles: augmentedis, or adjust screen resolution.

I hereby want thank all graphics creators, which were involved in this project and specified in .spec files,
must of all ngujaca for his nextended graphics, XYZ and others participants of this forum for additional sprites, openttd community for some of their works, and some people from civfanatics forum, which allowed to use their work here.
Also thanks Corbeau for some of his ideas, for example reverted tax system and cheap units with higher upkeep.

hi.res. http://149.156.194.203/~mczapkie/fc/aug ... chtree.png
with initial absolutism path as an example.

Tech tree have not only one "golden path", but some "side quests" as well, which lead to interesting strategy in case of alliances in multiplayer mode.
    Main core of tech tree are following branches:
  • infantry - Leather Tanning, Warrior Code, Bronze Working, Iron Working, Feudalism, Craft Guilds, Alchemy, Gunpowder, Metallurgy, Explosives, Conscription, Tactics, Chemical Synthesis, Machine Tools, Automobile, Welding Technology, Mobile Warfare, Amphibious Warfare, Combined Arms, Modern Warfare, Super Soldiers
  • cavalry - Animal Handling, Horseback Riding, Pastoralism, Sadle Stirrup, Chivalry, Hastilude, Leadership, General Staff, Tactics and forward as above
  • entertainment (luxury) - Creative Art, Alphabet, Writing, Drama, Martial Games, Hastilude, Theatre, Cinematography, Mass Entertainment, Television, Computers
  • religion (content)
      three main faith paths:
    • Polytheism - Creative Art, Ceremonial Burial, Polytheism, Vedism with fork into Shinto, Hinduism, Buddhism/Confucianism and Monotheism
    • Christianity - First Republic+Monotheism, Christianity, Theology (mandatory for Republic and Democracy)
    • Islam - Desert code+Monotheism, Islam, fork into Shiism and Sunnism.

Governments:
Image Tribalism (initial gov), flat corruption, no martial law, small empire, no palace req.
Image Anarchy, flat corruption, no taxes, huge production waste, no palace req.
Image Despotism, centralised, strong martial law, small empire, science penalty, req. palace
Image Monarchy, centralised, martial law, medium empire, celeb.: more food in capital, req. palace
Image First Republic, centralised, weak martial law, medium empire, gold bonus, celeb.: rapture gr., req. palace
Image Direct Democracy, centralised, no martial law, medium empire, sci bonus, celeb.: rapture gr., req. palace
Image Thalassocracy, flat corruption, martial law, small empire, sea trade bonus, land food penalty, celeb.: more shield., no palace req.
Image Republic, centralised, no martial law, medium empire, gold/sci bonus, celeb.: more trade, req. palace
Image Democracy, centralised, no martial law, large empire, sci/gold/lux bonus, celeb.: more trade, req. palace
Image Federation, flat corruption, no martial law, large empire, gold bonus, celeb.: more trade., no palace req.
Image Legalism, centralised, weak martial law, large empire, sci/lux penalty, celeb.: rapture gr., req. Forbidden City
Image Communism, flat corruption, strong martial law, large empire, lux/gold penalty, x2 food upkeep, celeb.: more production, no palace req.
Image Fundamentalism, centralised, no martial law, medium empire, sci penalty, special units, req. palace

Unit upkeep is usually same gold/shield/food for each government, but free upkeep threshold differs, for example republic have 3 free shields upkeep, republic 5 free gold upkeep.

Unit tiers description:

LAND UNITS
Land units are divided into classes, which have different properties and mobility.
The rule of thumb is, that upgraded unit newer losses its mobility - it can be upgraded only within its own class, or to better one (for example, Howitzer which belong to Wheeled Unit class, can be upgraded to Self-propelled Howitzer from Big Land class, which has fewer movement restriction).

Small Land - high mobility units,

    Caravan, unique unit (use slaves if you need to build wonder fast)
  • Image

Trains - can go on railroads only, req. Railway Station to build (Factory and/or Workshop Barracj add veterancy lvl);
can't be carried by ships (it would make them overpowered with current fc encapsulated capacity mechanics)
  • Image
    Train - simply for transport units, up to 10 of any land units except of turrets, or helicopter.
    ToDo: add terrain transform flag?
  • Image
    Armored Train - high defense strength, bombardment action,
    can carry 3 units: turrets, Small Lands or Infantry.

NAVAL UNITS
Ships are divided into three classes: River Boats, Triremes and Sea.

River Boats - can go only across rivers, lakes and water locks.
  • Image
    Raft - yet the only unit within this class,
    can carry all Land units except of Train,
    rather slow, but useful especially before Bridges Building era, or for moving siege units along enemy territory.

Coasters - can go across rivers, lakes, water locks and shallow sea.
  • Image
    Canoes - first boat in game, unique unit,
    can carry one Small Land unit.
  • Image
    Trireme - universal ship, combat capabilities with other ships,
    and slots for 2 Small Land or Infantry units.
    Trireme successors are split into two subclasses: merchant barges (no attack, transport), and warships (attack and turret slot)
    merchant barges - civilian transport vessels (defense only):
  • Image Image Image
    Aak, Steam Barge, Diesel Barge - can transport land units, like Trireme,
    +Light Cavalry Aak, +Heavy Cavalry and Wheeled Units: Steam Barge, +Big Land: Diesel Barge.
    Steam and Diesel Barge can also clean pollution and transform terrain, like engineers, no need to carry them inside to do the task.
    coastal warships:
  • Image Image Image
    Galley, Monitor - coastal warships, can carry two artillery turrets or infantry units, Patrol Boat: can carry 2 turrets, torpedos or infantry units.

Sea - can enter any sea tile, or tile with water lock.
Sea units are divided into following subclasses: transport vessels, small, medium and big warships, submarines.
    transport vessels:
  • Image
    Raft with sail, unique unit, can carry one Small Land unit, require Moai Statues small wonder to be built.
  • Image
    Longship, unique unit, can carry one Infantry unit.
  • Image Image Image Image
    Caravel, Galleon, Paddle Steamer, Transport - can transport land units, similar to subsequent Trireme classes.
  • Image
    Carrier, can carry Aircraft, Missiles, Small Land or Helicopters.
    small warships:
  • Image Image Image Image
    Brig, Frigate - can carry 1 Turret or Small Land, Destroyer, Railgun Destroyer: Turret, Torpedos or Small Land
    medium warships:

  • Image
    Battleship (obsoleted by AEGIS) - can carry 3 Turrets.
    submarines:

    Submarine, Nuclear Submarine - can carry Torpedos (Nuclear Submarine also Missiles)
  • Image Image Image Image
    Junk Sail (unique), Cog (Thalassocracy req.), Clipper, Freighter - merchant ships, same function as caravans.

AIR UNITS
Aerial units are divided into two classes: Air and Helicopter.
I recommend to do not use unreachable protects setting, Air units have prolonged refuel period, fighter can spend 2 TC in midair,
thus instead protecting whole stack almost whole turn, it can protect tile occupancy without need to refuel each turn - unreachable flag would overpower them too much.


Air units consist of four subclasses:
    Fighters:
  • Image Image Image
    Airplane, Fighter, Jet Fighter - can attack other Air units, or ground units, directly.
    Strike Fighters:
  • Image Image Image Image
    Strike Airplane, Strike Jet, Stealth Fighter, Antimatter Fighter - can attack other Air or Land units (two first are worse than regular Fighters) as well as can carry GBU or Torpedos.
    Fighters and Strike Fighters branches converges into universal Stealth Fighter.
    Bombers:
  • Image Image Image Image
    Zeppelin, Bomber, Stealth Bomber, Antimatter Bomber - provide bombard action, Bomber and above can carry GBU/Missiles (in case of Missiles class, only ABomb can be ejected)
    Recon. and civilian units:
  • Image Image
    Balloon, AWACS - for observation purposes (first also as cheap city protection)
  • Image
    Drone - patrolling, attacking weak units, no unhappiness.
  • Image Jetliner - same function as caravans or migrants.

MISSILES
Single uses units consists of the following classes:
  • Image
    Guided Bomb Unit (GBU), sort of short range missile, carried by airplanes
  • Image
    Torpedo, short range Sea single-use unit, carried by Naval or Air units.
  • Image
    Missile, can attack also airplanes/missiles, carried by Naval units
  • Image
    Cruise Missile, can attack land/sea units, carried by Naval units
  • Image
    Atomic Bomb, nuclear unit, carried by Airplanes, Nuclear Plant req.
  • Image
    Nuclear missile, carried by Naval units, Nuclear Plant req.

Re: [2.6] Augmented ruleset modpack

Postby louis94 » Wed Dec 26, 2018 4:58 pm

I tried it against the AI and research was quite slow. Even though I was playing like crap, I could take over one of the AIs with horses. Other AIs didn't seem to develop anything beyond phalanxes (except barbarians who had galleons and legions).

The variety of new units is nice. I still need some time to get accustomed to them…
The fact that cities conquered from the AI would riot until getting down to size 1 was kind of a challenge (under Tribal). One needs to have settlers ready to add some new citizens to the mix, making it less willing to revolt.

If you want to reach higher tech levels in a reasonable time, I recommend speeding up research a lot (like, make it twice as fast).

I opened a PR on Github to make it possible to install augmented2 using the modpack installer.

Thanks for testing. Generally AI is weak in case of every heavily changed ruleset. There are some AI bugs and flaws, for example in Despotism you can set 90% tax, and AI is doing that instead of go for science.
I recommend to set about 10 AI players with different skill level, and increase tiles per player to allow them develop before they clash each other.
Probably it is also good idea to increase sci output for AI, even for these with on not cheating level.

louis94 wrote:The fact that cities conquered from the AI would riot until getting down to size 1 was kind of a challenge (under Tribal)

Indeed, initial Tribalism allow to fast spread of own cities (Tribe cost only 1 population points whereas Settlers costs 2 points), Tribe Huts cancel tile penalty, and Horsemen or Mounted Archery are excellent units for fast conquer of nearby opponents - but without martial law, huge tribal empire would collapse soon (as was read in history books :-)
Thus Palace and Despotism is needed, and Despotism require Agricultural Farming, which cancel benefits of Tribe units and Tribe Huts.

Thank you, but would you explain me more? I'm not sure what is "raw" version of URL and where is this modpack installer...

EDIT: version 2.6.2 available, minor changes described in chagnelog.txt

I got technical problems in GTK client. When I open the City screen, it is extremely long vertically, enough to make the city instructions unvisible. Is there a solution to this?

Also the Qt-client gives me, sometimes, "Did not find a cm solution in 25000 iterations for (AI's Capital?)." No idea if it is the mod's fault, but any solution for this?

Start with lowered resolution: see HRM#722184.

About solutions not found by CMA, it appears on likely any rulesets allowing more or less big cities.

I agree, it is annoying bug, I was using multiple screen to access city controls, but it was tedious.
Therefore I prepared alternative tileset for small overhead trident-like graphics.

Version 2.6.4 contain two tileset: augmentedi for isometric amplio-like view, and augmentedo, for overhead trident-like view.
You need to change "topology" (add or remove ISO in game.ruleset or change settings before game launch) and later you can choose appropriate tileset from local client options.


If talking about modpack installer, I need have this project polished: at least tested in singleplayer mode from Stone Knapping beyond Great Unification Theory :)


I'm also thinking about making two cavalry family: Heavy Cavalry (Horsemen, Elephants, Knight, Crusaders, Cuirassiers, Mounted Infantry, Mech. Inf.), with better armor/defense, but limited mobility (besides of mountains and glaciers, also no swamps), and Light Cavalry (Mounted Archers, Dragoons, Lancers, ... no idea about replacement - Bicycle Troops? ATV?), weak in defense but can attack non-native tiles and where regular Land units can go.

Currently there are following Land unit classes:
Small Land - can go on any land tile, can't occupy cities, usually weak attack, bombard attack or no attack ability (beside of Alpine Troops)
Land - regular units, can't go on mountains/glacier (some of them can attack it)
Big Land - as above, no swamps (I should put jungles here, but Elephants are now in this class).
Wheeled Unit - only roads.
Turrets - only city, fortress, but can be mounted on ship/train.

About heavy chivalry, I have idea to make a trap for it (like mine). Light chivalry are trap untouchable. In future there could exist heave mine and light mine. Of course, mine making terrain unworkable.

How do I force/change a resolution? I change the client values and apply them, but it makes no change.

If you do end up doing this, you should make terrain improvements (or at least roads) still visible to actually make the mine hidden. Probably contradicts reality, but I prefer gameplay before historical accuracy.

Where do I write this?
