Re: Replacing the desert mountains

EDIT2:Got a bit further. Maybe a multi-hex mountain will help now. These would be better as impassable, like what Eleazar told freim above. Or maybe they should be lowered. Those are really cool. I agree they look "impassable". Sleepwalker is right, the blacks are a bit too strong, and horizontal l...

Re: Brick Steampunk Castle

I uploaded the wrong screenshot, and missed some files from the zip at first. Now attached are the actually final files.

Brick Steampunk Castle

I did this quite a while ago for a project that went nowhere. It doesn't really fit mainline, but some UMC may find it useful. The .CFGs are very out of date: 1.6.5 (IIRC) but may help you put these together. Sorry, it was a long time ago, and i'm not providing scripting support to make these work. ...

Re: Super-Obvious Ugly Strategic Map View

Double click on mini-map -> terrain transitions go away a la editor's "no transitions updates". Minimap also gets some sort of colored border to show there is an active effect. Double click again to turn off. I don't think removing the transitions would help anything overall but frame rate. Some te...

Re: Changing how terrain Names are displayed

Not quite true. Sunken villages act as villages for the purpose of capturing but do not have the village archetype and don't seem likely to get it. Similarly, the Castle and Keep overlays only provide recruiting capabilities, they don't gain the other attributes. I'm just saying that we don't need ...

Re: Changing how terrain Names are displayed

I thought the idea of this thread had previously been implemented, but i see in 1.10 we're still giving priority to pointless info on the often limited space on the right of the menu bar. I'm confident the art is good enough that we don't need to tell the player that a particular castle is a "Ruined...

Re: Super-Obvious Ugly Strategic Map View

...Our terrain is a bit complicated and the current interface does not tell the player much about it. The problems belong to the time where mixed terrain was introduced. Since then real behavior of the hex field is determined by a boolean sort of equation in which the unit is the variable for each ...

Re: Water Graphics in 1.9/1.10

I don’t personally see a particular need to determine which water hex is of what kind when covered in fog, since that usually means I don’t have any units currently able to move to those hexes. In a rare situation, they’d have immediate tactical significance if there are units with the submerge abi...

Super-Obvious Ugly Strategic Map View

In a thread mostly complaining about the "new" terrains, slowthinker had what a think was an excellent idea. (see especially the italic.) ....My primary need is to distinguish the terrains with a different effect without an effort. I like to see nice maps, but only if my primary need is not harmed. ...

Re: New bridges (bridge-castle-transitions, hanging bridge)

Re: Hanging wooden bridge It bugs that the bridge hangs flat in the middle in bridges more than 2 hexes long. But i realize there's no good way to fix that, short of the map designer realizing that the bridge doesn't work well like that. Still i'm impressed with the amount of curving and hanging th...

Re: New bridges (bridge-castle-transitions, hanging bridge)

Re: wooden rickety bridge This is a really lovely, and i'm sure technically challenging piece of work. The vanishing into the depths effect is perfect, IMHO. If i was going to nitpick, i'd say the sharpness looks a little too high for terrain, and you've used black too aggressively in the joints. T...

Re: What are you reading right now?

Currently reading The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson. Good, but only a short way in so not really sure yet where it's going. Diamond age is possibly the densest concentration of sci-fi i've ever read. In other words, if you don't have a strong background in science fiction you probably will be lost...
