Era of Music

Post by soundandfury » July 13th, 2012, 2:45 pm

Over the past month I've been creating Era of Music. Civil war has broken out in the orchestra, and the sections are battling for supremacy!
The first version, with 3 of 5 factions created (but probably not well-balanced), is now up on the addon server.
Factions are: Strings (lawful/neutral, technical/speedster), Brass (lawful, brute force) and Woodwind (chaotic, glass cannon). Planned are Percussion (neutral, elitist/brute) and Electric (chaotic, spammers).

My experience so far is that I can beat the AI in any 1-on-1 matchup or with any faction in a 3-way fight, which suggests the balance isn't too bad. That or the AI sucks :|

Please play-test and let me know what you think.
Unit usage notes by faction:

Hey everybody, soundandfury gave me permission to upload this to the 1.14 server! :mrgreen: 8)
It's worth downloading just to read the hilarious unit descriptions :D

I've tested it and haven't come across any problems, but if you find any please post here!

Changes:
-fixed a typo in the Grand cello's description (beatiful -> beautiful)
-added the [ability] tag around {ability_steadfast} in the unit file for the bass viol and double bass so it will work correctly
