Re: Mystic economy in Under the Burning Suns

Yeah, that can be done, even on hard difficulty. You just don't want to. Do as I suggested, just so you can see what happens.

Re: Mystic economy in Under the Burning Suns

... but - scenario 3 does have a turn limit, so I'm not sure what you mean. No, it doesn't. ;) Seriously, you haven't played scenario 3 to turn 12 and seen what happens? Try it. Reload your previous scenario 3 start (or if that's not saved, reload your scenario 2 end, which I think is automatically...

Re: I seem to have broken ANLEra Terraforming Code

Edit: Whoops! Nevermind, people, I think I found the problem. The original #define WORKER_OPTIONS code includes this, which my current version lacks: [store_gold] side=$side_number variable=gold [/store_gold] Yeah, notwithstanding my ignorance of coding, I suspect herein lay my problem. :lol: I'll l...

I seem to have broken ANLEra Terraforming Code

Consternation, people! I have broken something again. :oops: I have been using "A New Land Era" as a basis for my own modification that includes the ability for 0-level units to terraform the tile they are on. As a preliminary step to adding new options, I've been trying to simplify the existing cod...

Re: Mystic economy in Under the Burning Suns

Yuni is the Mystic with Zhul on the sacred island in the first scenario. I think at easier levels, you even get a second Mystic, whose name escapes me. The Sun Sylph line only heals 4, it's true. That's why you have two 8-healers (Zhul and Yuni). Rotate troops, space out your healers to maximize the...

Re: Mystic economy in Under the Burning Suns

Didn't get any suggestions about mystic recruitment and advancement until well after I've finished the campaign :-( Then you didn't need it so much? ;) UtBS is probably my favorite main-line campaign. I certainly play it the most. I play on hard, and generally my aim is to complete the campaign wit...

Re: Implementing "Formation" from UtBS

Great! I was just getting back to this problem and thinking that a filter for "magical" right up front was the solution, just uncertain of the correct way to code it. I will try this. :D

Re: Implementing "Formation" from UtBS

Wow! Yeah, newfrenchy83's code works. I just substituted it in, and I no longer have the original problem. I tried testing it in a few different contexts, and it correctly caps out the defensive bonus at 70%. Please don't anyone take this the wrong way, because you are helping me with code that, fra...

Re: Implementing "Formation" from UtBS

Not sure if it helps, but I too have a formation implementation, which works fine for any side, not just side 1. Note that it is reduced to a 5% defense increase though, but that should be easy enough to tweak where you want it. The {ABILITY} itself is just a dummy: #define ABILITY_FORMATION [dummy...

Re: Implementing "Formation" from UtBS

What about Tanstafaal's side? I stand corrected. I completely forgot the rebel elves. But still, if you check, you will find that formation doesn't work for them. Yeah, Beetlenaut is correct: although Tanstafaal's side has formation units, I checked after reading his comment, and sure enough, two u...

Re: Implementing "Formation" from UtBS

You should note that formation only works for side 1 the way it is currently written. If you are trying to use it on a different side, that would explain your trouble. I haven’t thought about it, but nearly all of my tests were as side 1. Just for thoroughness, I tested with the unit on side 2, and...

Implementing "Formation" from UtBS

I’m trying to implement the Formation ability from Under the Burning Sun on a custom unit I have inserted into the A New Land Era. (Formation adds +10% defense for each adjacent unit with the Formation ability.) From the UtBS folders, I’ve copied the code for #define SPECIAL_NOTES_FORMATION, #define...

Re: Changing User Data storage location

Okay, one thing to know about me is that I’m really slooooooooow (perhaps in more ways than one?), so I’m just now getting around to implementing this. Problem: I’ve added the suggested language, but it’s not working. Specifically, the shortcut isn’t working at all with that addition. (I.e., it does...

Changing User Data storage location

I’m running version 1.14.7 on a Windows 10 machine (a Lenovo Yoga 730-13, to be very, very specific). Back in the olden days, there was an option when installing BfW to have the user data stored in the same location as the game, itself, but that seems not to be available anymore. I’m wondering if th...
