Re: UMC: Initiative rolls

Here's what I've got, a bit rough but worth trying. Extract to your user-data directory. There are comments in the file. You can add it into another era by adding the line {~campaigns/InitiativeTestEra/simple_initiative.cfg} after the [era] tag. I'm unable to test it, because the game is having iss...

Re: SLOW Performance Issues: post here to Help

I just installed a clean copy of 1.6.2 with no addons and loaded a quick LAN multi-player 2 player map and the froze on 'Generating Teams' load-up screen. This is the same exact issue I mentioned before. Some users blamed UMC's which is now proven to not the the case. (Xp 64-bit, 6 GB's 1002Mhz G-sk...

Re: Initiative rolls + Critical hits

Do you actually plan on attempting to implement this yourself in a UMC, or are you hoping that someone will do it for you? I currently have someone working on a test version. I'm a project designer not a programmer. But if you do recruits, I think you cannot add dynamically so many sides (and would...

Re: Cut & Copy Functions

This is somewhat related but is there any way to have a history in the input bar?

both chat and system would be useful.


For example if someone is typing a command line, it is tedious to have to type it again if there was a mistake, or it needs to be repeated.

Re: UMC: Initiative rolls + Critical hits

Here is a more exact description of the mechanics. A roll (equal to the number of characters on the board) is made each round. If two players get the same number the higher level character would go first, however If they are the same level they re-roll between themselves, continuously until an order...

After debating further though, I realized that it may also help prevent a stale mate in some games.

Re: Initiative rolls + Critical hits

Your right, but the chance of this occuring is low. You do understand that every character will move once before the first character gets the chance to move again. Its just the order that gets totally jumbled. There are other games that use this system and it creates more fun! I find that especially...

Re: Initiative rolls + Critical hits

...when you go from being last to being first. This translates to a double turn, which has a very powerful effect on the battle. This means that it will be essentially impossible to keep units alive. It goes both ways though. You might get a double turn, as much as any other player. Chance is chance.

UMC: Initiative rolls

This is a suggestion for online multi-player UMC. When you start a multi-player map there could should be an option to choose either the classic turn-based style of play, or a more dynamic initiative based style wherein at the start of the round a D20 initiative roll is made for each character a pla...

Orocia improvement ideas

This is a simple suggestion but I think it might help even out some issues. Its a team-survival game right? so: -I think players should share income from houses. Sometimes (more often than not) monsters are not shared equally among all sides, they tend to group and go to one wall, leaving one player...

Re: Wasp

Alirght doofus. That abdomen was believe it or not worked up from a picture of the real thing. I guess the colors were just a little over extenuated because I colored over the top and over generalized a single shade. So I'll re-visit it. Here is the newest sprite, My first impressions are that it is...
