Re: alternatives for problematic advancement pathes

This has been noted elsewhere as one of the cases where RiPLIB is violated. It is felt that in mainline the fact that mage of light exists in a lawfull or neutral with lawfull supplement faction is sufficent that the drawback of illuminate is negilible. In a campaign, if you add a mage to a mainly c...

Re: weapon autochoice oddity

Notice that if your crusader had been wounded, so that it only had 45 hp left the computer would preferr the melee attack. In short the ranged attack is preferred because it has a slighly higher expected damage yield due to the drain. How much damage you take on retaliation is irrelevant, since you ...

Re: Possible to make a smarter 'next men'?

How about implementing Christofides algorithm?

This should give a reasonable approximation of the traveling salesman.

The tour would have to be reevaluated each time a unit move though. (Or rather each time next is pressed after a unit have moved)

Re: Body Count

For multi player there is an active ladder.

A general scoring system is probably a bad idea since it removes some flexibility from the campaign designers. At least one user made campaign used a system of tracking lesser goals to present a score on the end of the campaign.

Re: UMC ability: Unit gives +1 XP to all surrounding lower units

I'd like to hear your thoughts on the balance ramifications of this concept. On one hand, if the units have higher experience requirements than the norm, this could allow this unit to help out more in that area, as well as give extra incentive to commission officer units. It also makes the unit des...

Re: Initiative rolls + Critical hits

...when you go from being last to being first. This translates to a double turn, which has a very powerful effect on the battle. This means that it will be essentially impossible to keep units alive. It goes both ways though. You might get a double turn, as much as any other player. Chance is chanc...

Isn't this calculation done anyway when the AI chooses attack option?

Reason; turnovers, when you go from being last to being first. This translates to a double turn, which has a very powerful effect on the battle. This means that it will be essentially impossible to keep units alive.

OK. I guess the question that remains is;
How do you get the troll to step on dwarf land? He never does that when I play.

Re: Problems with LOW-Hostile Mountains

Yes, I think it should, at least on hard; Then this replay isn't really that helpful since it is 60 gold off. Considering the losses you did take I think you would have been in trouble if you had 3 units less to play with. Edit: Also some generic questions; On scenario 1 you stop short of the river...
