A New Land: Extended

Post by deinotes »

I have uploaded a "new" era to the campaign server it's a extension to a new land and some minimal alteration to the building options of the already existed units.
Thera are 2 new factions, elves and dwarves.
The alteration is that the outlaws,orc and undead no langer can create shallow water but instead create swamp.
The loyalist and dwarves can convert this swamp to water and dirt.
Here is a overview of the different factions :

Loyalists
Worker: Peasant (8g)
Scholar: Mage (20g)
- Cannot destroy buildings or bridges.

+ Can build villages on swamps.
+ Can build castles and keeps for 4g, 2g cheaper than other factions.

- Cannot donate funds.
Diplomacy: Nagas & Dwarves
Farms: 2g
Mines: 2g

Orcs
Worker: Goblin Spearman (8g)
Scholar: Orcish Shaman (18g)
+ Can dig caves and build cave villages.
+ Wafare research target is 1 point lower.
- Cannot donate funds.
Diplomacy: Saurians & Nagas
Farms: 2g
Mines: 4g

Undead
Worker: Walking Corpse (7g)
Scholar: Dark Adept (16g)
+ Can dig caves and build cave villages.

Is the dwarves not being able to mine a balance thing or you feel they couldn't farm?

Woot! I haven't played ANL in a while mainly because I got bored with the factions, this is sure to get me playing it again. :D

Um.. I already have the elves and dwarves done...
Bob was just going to upload them when I get the balance a little better...
Then I was going to do Drakes...

Well, this will do until then, but I must say a few things. First, dwarvish runner for the dwarvish scholar? couldn't you at least have it be animated? Second Elves farming forests means it's hard to get a good defense for more then one turn. And third, why can't the dwarvish miner upgrade to a fighter?

I am... but I'm all for variety... Also... I used a custom unit for both races as a worker... plus an edited mainline unit for Dwarves scholar... I'm just working out all the kinks.

Once I do get these done, I would appreciate this discontinued, it just kind of would make me feel like my work was for nothing, but you can keep it up there for now.

I mean animated as in the EE dwarvish runner has attack animations but in this there aren't any animations except for a defensive animation. Sorry if I wasn't clear, I commonly have to write posts as I'm turning off the computer so I usually don't have time to proofread.

I have searched the forum for "new land" before making the era and nothing showed up so maybe next time
Post somewhere that you are working on something.

Instead of asking me to discontinue why not appreciate the work i have done and maybe i have even got some of your kinks fixed.
I am willing to rename this era but not abbendon because i was planning on keeping 6 races and do more with the terrain and buidling options.

deinotes, if you want to change your work to adding more than just the races, then be my guest. I only asked for your discontinuation because it makes me feel like my work was for nothing HOWEVER if you're going to change more than just the races, then be my guest at continuing.

I did not mean to offend you.

I wasn't offended i was disappointed but i understood your reaction.
It's never nice to have no reward for your work.
Btw what kind of custom units did you made, and what for thoughts had you on the diplomacy, mining and farming for the new factions ?
