Re: Galactic Empires (MP Sci-fi Scenario)

Here is another replay from my map showcasing a strong P1 rush, I think this may be a little too strong, needs some more testing. This rush can also be performed with the Vendeeni (I tested this but don't have replay) and is a little more aggressive due to the cheaper ships, but terran is nice as yo...

Re: Galactic Empires (MP Sci-fi Scenario)

Looking at the changelog and testing confirms that the issue where you have more than 2 players and the game ends prematurely when 1 player dies is still in the 1.14 release. if you play for example the 3p FFA map and kill off 1 player the game just ends. I wrote a patch to fix this in the 1.12 vers...

Re: Galactic Empires (MP Sci-fi Scenario)

Hi all, I have made a new GE map and uploaded it to the add-on server under "Extra GE Scenarios" The map is a lot smaller than those that currently exist I did this to try and downplay the economy focus playstyles that I feel are forced upon you with the larger maps. The map should also have the eff...

Re: A New Land Like Maps

There are a few of addons like this: - "A new land era", this is an extension of ANL implemented as an era lets you use it on any map. (is in 1.14 addon server) - "Galactic era", this is somewhat similar, you build ships and conquer planets and research on a tech tree (is in 1.14 addon server) - "Ne...

Re: Galactic Empires (MP Sci-fi Scenario)

I disagree that GE is lacking an AI thus resulting in lack of pick up from newer players, the tutorial does a good job of introducing the mechanisms involved. The real issue is after the tutorial you are thrown into a map like Beta where you now have a lot of decisions to make and it takes 2 hours t...

Re: Galactic Empires (MP Sci-fi Scenario)

I believe I have fixed the FFA bug, now when you capture enemy homeworld hq it will not be a leader hq anymore so you don't get an extra homeworld hq. the game should also appropriately end when there is only 1 homeworld hq left that hasn't been captured. not sure who the game will give the victory ...

Re: Feedback requested: MP lobby game info redesign

I need to be able to see if a game is using map settings or not, not clear in this design how this is done. The games' title is more important to me than which scenario it is. when scrolling through the list I will usually look at the minimap to determine scenario followed by the title then everythi...

Re: Ladder Council

As for not playing Adv due to certain maps, just agree with your opponent before starting what ones you refuse to play. Most people are pretty reasonable, and if not, just play someone else ;) that doesn't help if you haven't played the maps a ton to know which ones are ok or not thats what adventu...

Re: Ladder Council

Council map vote was not public, but the members had to add remarks to the map to illustrate their point, and for ratings of 8 and below were obliged to describe its flaws. ok thats nice to hear that there was justification given for the scores, but why is it secret? not trying to judge I just don'...

I was the person who said they would no longer p...
