Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

Mainline strings has something to do with translations. I'll admit to not being to sure about it as I've never worked with translations directly but I think the gist of it is that it allows you to use the mainline translations for strings that you reuse in your era (for example, sword is a word mai...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

@Dixie: IIRC and AFAIK, these macros are usually defined in the main.cfg. And you could change the name to fit your era (for example, EOC_SIDE, or something like that). Right you are. Found them. And they make sense now. Yes, it is possible. You will need three chance_to_hit weapon specials with a f...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

So. I'm just going to not make promises anymore about when I'm going to do what… I work on some things and then others very sporadically. I've been working on actually making this playable, recently… all of the factions (except the new one) have placeholder images and I've been making the race files...

Re: Please post your favorite non-mainline campaign

Personally, I always enjoyed The Story of the Wose... and Invasion from the Unknown is excellent. Count Kromire (mentioned) is good, and turin's campaigns for the Imperial Era (My favourite was the Epic of Vaniyera). I also will put my vote in for To Lands Unknown. Very impressive. Bad Moon Rising's...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

It has been a few days.. certainly longer than I said. I've been working on a show, anyway (not that I have to explain myself, but I figured it'd be polite). Moving on: Before I begin, I would strongly suggest that sometime in the near future, you create a working prototype with placeholder art. You...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

Velensk: This is my take on water control in eras. If you have flight or water control on one faction, you will need an answer on every other which will likely need to take the form of a flying or water control unit. I'll come up with something simple, then, I think. That seems the best choice. Your...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

Well, I didn't quite want to "copy" what they had there.. more like try to take from it what I can. I think that more orange-y is the way to go with the hair, anyway.. and I like the idea of showing some skin. It does look unfortunately like a sort of weird devil (and I'd had that thought myself). I...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

Alright: new unit. It's based off of a Grogoch, a creature found in Irish myth. It's supposed to be a sort of faerie that can turn invisible at will, and is generally mischievous, etc. It's supposed to look like a very small old man, covered in reddish fur/hair. (seen here ). (As per the function of...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

Don't worry about prices for level 2 right now. What I am mostly trying to figure out is how this faction will play in a standard compeditive multiplayer environment. So what they do and how well, how much they cost, ect. You forgot to tell me what alignment these units are. Alright. Understandable...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

Thanks! I appreciate the kind words. :). It's nice to hear that I get colours right.. and thanks! I was going for something a little different, anyway. And I'll keep those in mind.

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

Use the code tags, that'll let you use tabs I think. That will be quite useful in the future, thank you. You forgot to list prices, prices determine a lot about how a faction is played. You also have told me nothing about the alignment movetype which is also very important. (covers terrain defenses...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

So "later today" ended up being "several days later," mainly because I wanted to try to complete them before submitting.. but it's harder than I thought. I've got almost complete unit trees for almost all of the factions, but only concrete stats for one faction. There're more general ideas for every...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

So. Working with the same four units, trying to fix them up still.. I should have some more within the next couple of days. I do thank the people who have commented for their help. =]. I'm still not sure about the Lai's other wing (the one that *I* drew, go figure). @beetlenaut: I tried to make the ...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

(Double poooost) Alright. So. Here are two of them, anyway. I shrunk the Spearman's head, and I tried to neaten/fix the Potent (and the Lai), all with a limited amount of colours. Does anyone have any idea what to do with the Pictish Beast? I'd like to make it not so.. bad. But I have no ideas (at a...

Re: Era of Courage [name subject to change]

@Vranca I'll try to add more contrast to them tonight. Thanks! @beetlenaut: Thank you. I thought so too.. I can try to shrink his head, at least. And I can do that too.. I'm sure it won't be too hard to replace colours with only four different shades, etc. And that's a good number to have. I'll keep...
