I am not going to make level 0. There are supposed to be a god-like faction...

That is temporary. I am going to make a level 1 swordsman unit that goes up into the dancer in into a Heavy Bladesman then Master Swordsman

I have no made the Bladesman sprite yet but will in the next hour or so.

Here is an edited tree

NNN=Needs New Name

Code: Select all


Bladesman - Blade Dancer
           \
             Heavy Bladesman - Master Swordsman

Slow Foot - Driver - Destroyer
           \
            Dogface - Warrior (NNN)


             Valkyria - Einherjar
            /
Swift Foot - Striker - Gyre Striker
            \
             Escort - Protecter
 

                      Aerowheel
Cutter - Iron Wheel -|
                      Firewheel

Apprentice - Praecentor  - Storm Cantor



EDIT Here is the Bladesman. Thoughts?

I will help you learn. When you have learned enough I will have 3 jobs for you. The first would be to make an 'Age of Heros' version of the AE so we could have 'Ageless Era' and 'Ageless Era Masters'. I can give you more instructions on that when I have taught you enough. Then I want an 'Ageless Era Races' Version were there are races like Humans, Orcs, Elves, Monster and so on. You would give races like the Primevals there own faction because they are a unique race. There would be no mixed faction. An example would be how the 'Ukians' have a 'Dog' and an 'Attack Dog' unit. Those would be put in the Creatures faction and the rest of the humans would be put in the Humans faction. My third job is to sort them all into types. Fighter, Archer, Horseman, Mage and Healers, Mixed, and any more that there are. This would be called 'Ageless Era Guilds' These are pretty simple things to do, they are just very time-taking. I will help with this but there is to many for one person to do. I do realize that must of the eras I have added to AE have there won Masters version but I won't to make mine from scratch so they are not the same and so the ids are different as well. The masters factions will be different because these factions will include all the units for level 1 and 2 as recruits and all level 3 and a very few level 2 units as leaders. The only level 2 units will be the ones that do not level up like the Primeval Dancer or the Steel Eagle.

I suggest you start by simple looking at the code of a units and work your way up from there. You need to simple change things like the damage a unit does or the health or experience it need to level up. Then move on to things like adding a new attack or making a new animations. When you get good enough try making your own unit from scratch. But make sure you look at the other units file so you don't forget anything or mistype something important like the units id or forget a '_'. Then add your units to one of the factions and change around the faction a bit. You get the idea. If you have any problems ask me or go to WML workshop. Make sure to look in the correct wikis too. They are confusing but they do help a lot when you have forgotten something or are in need of a certain tag.

The path to the code is here. Once there you can open anything you want with a basic text editor. Just select the cfg file to open with the editor of your choice. There you can look at the data

Just take all the factions you make and put them in a new folder. Name each file like this: 'FACTION_NAME-Masters.cfg'. Any example would be: 'Anakes-Masters.cfg'. Each Id of each faction should be like this: 'AE_anakes-masters' I can't make you a unit tree. There are to many factions. All you need to d is go into one of the unit folders like the Anake folder and open 1 file at a time. look st the level and either add it to the recruit list or the leader list. But no level 4 leaders. Did I forget anything?

Minor error. You have Captain. You need Desert Captain. You can just post them in a spoiler tag. I will take them and add them to the era. Thanks a lot. I will also match you for every faction you do. Here are the Ceresian:
