Seeking Help Locating Game Files

Post by Wevilspore »

I have explored some of the files in the game. However, I need help to make certain changes. I was trying to create a new faction called the Elementals. I was able to find and modify all the movement types to separate the Lava terrain from the Chasm terrain so that my ground-based Fire Elementals can travel across Lava but not Chasm's.

There are a couple of abilities that I want to create. One will be referred to as "{Terrain}home". The idea is to allow the unit regeneration only in the indicated {Terrain}. The other is Charm.

What I had in mind for Charm was that the afflicted unit would be under the control of the effect's controller for 1 turn (like Slow).

One final thought: units should get experience for healing others. This should be at a rate of 1XP for each unit, other than self (so "drainers" and "regeneraters" don't get this) that receives some healing.

That last idea has been suggested....

Too many times...
FPI thread wrote:* Healing should give experience
Background: it is felt that levelling-up some units with healing abilities is too difficult, and they should get
experience through healing.
Result: it is felt that allowing units to gain experience without risk would make levelling-up of such units
inevitable. Further, one of the motivating examples of this is so that units such as shaman can have a hope to level up
in multiplayer. It is pointed out that if the experience gains were high enough to allow shaman to level up in a single
multiplayer game, then it would be trivial to gain the best type of healing unit in a campaign very quickly.
If white was black and black was white, what would happen to zebra crossings?
