  1. I think you pretty much discribed what my mod does? Only difference is i use energy so a unit cannot endlessly charge after an escaping enemy and functions as a reset after a succesful charge attack. This pretty much means they can charge once per combat. Only thing i would need to do for ramming ships is simply add a melee attack and set energy in the template. Ram speed and damage will be automatically increased with more garrisoned soldiers.
  2. It will be included in my next mod update. Right now it's in it's prototype phase, but it's already working as discribed below. Melee units have energy and automatically initiate a charge attack when they are close enough to their target. They consume energy at a rate while they are charging their target and deal bonus damage on the first attack if they had energy left when they reached the target (after a succesful charge attack the left-over energy will be consumed). Units that do nothing AKA idling will recharge their energy automatically. Rams will be able to charge aswell and have bonus damage/speed based on how many men are garrisoned inside it on the first attack. Rams only have energy equal to how many are inside though, that means 0 when they are ungarrisoned. Pierce damage receives the highest damage bonus, so that means pike and spear charges are stronger than sword charges.
  3. Why would an economical role be the equivalent of being worthless? Why is the warfare role more important than the economical one? You need both, without economics you can't deploy warfare. I'd say thats far from being useless or honourless. I think men would be picked to fight over women 99.9% of the time with the current civs we have ingame. Don't quote me on it though. But the mod wow made for having both male and female "gatherers" is a nice addition because that seems more realistic to me since not all men went to warfare.
  4. Hi @Genava55, thanks for the interest. I got it working. The new features of the next update that are finished right now can be find here: Grapjas93/grapejuice at prototype (github.com). If you're interested you can also check the project overview of what i still need to do.
  5. Yeah i scribbled something together aswell, but i think @m7600 is on it, so i withdraw
  6. @Old Roman, just to double check, you pasted "svn co https://svn.wildfiregames.com/public/ps/trunk/" without the quotes in command prompt and not "https://svn.wildfiregames.com/public/ps/trunk/", right? To update SVN, right mouse click the folder where you downloaded it and click "SVN update".
  7. Could maybe do something like a base score for posting then have a multiplier for it. Base_score x (reputation / posts) = Add_value_to_rank Example (low rep, high post count): 10 x (10 / 20) = 5 Example (high rep, low post count): 10 x (50 / 10) = 50 Not sure if this is possible but i'm just thinking out loud.
  8. @maroder I honestly like them (alot). It's especially nice because they are from the game. @feneur are you open for new icons if we provide them to you? If so, what size do they need to be?
  9. Yes, but you need 14 icons for all 14 ranks on the forum which icons did you have in mind from the game?
  10. I kind of like the cleaner look overall, but takes some getting used to. As a replacement for the placeholder rocket image i think this would be great (in color though); Now we just need someone who can/want to make them
  11. My take on how you can easily install SVN (latest development build) on windows: Download and install (make sure you check the command line tools option) https://tortoisesvn.net/downloads.html Make a folder where you like, name it whatever you like. Open this folder. Click the adress bar, type cmd and press enter. into the screen that popped up copy & paste: svn co https://svn.wildfiregames.com/public/ps/trunk/ If it says 'At revision xxxxx' it's done downloading. run \binaries\system\pyrogenesis.exe to start svn. To update svn, right mouse click the folder, choose 'svn update'. (made this post for revival of the thread to attract new people for testing / showing easability to install)
  12. I agree that consistency in a formation will look and play better. I think the unit re-arranging inside formations comes from pathfinding in it's core, calculating if the formation can fit through the path (which gets recalculated quite often if im not mistaken) but i'm not 100% sure. But yeah, the re-arranging is really spammy sometimes. If you don't know how to mod, you need to find someone who will look into it for you. Or you can try to learn some javascript basics and apply what you learn into your mod. Code Academy is a pretty decent free one, which focusses on quick short sessions a day for routine. Relatively speaking in comparison to other languages, java is easy to learn.
  13. @Belisarius17 He was simply giving you constructive criticism, you're taking what Freagerach said way to heavy. Part of learning as a new contributor is to accept constructive criticism and work on it. Not run away from it.
  14. Make a new thread, describe what you are trying to make, how much experience in javascript you have, what points you need help with etc.
  15. binaries/data/mods/public/simulation/components/Formation.js binaries/data/mods/public/simulation/components/FormationAttack.js
  16. If you mean half way across the map, then yeah that won't work for formations. They need to be fairly close to eachother for a formation to properly group up. If a unit is far from the 'meeting point' for formation (but not to far to join the formation), they will run to it. 2021-06-20 15-04-43.mp4 I like it the way it is. Without running, the formations will feel very sluggish and a unit cannot catch up to a moving formation if it needs to join. I dislike the flee stance how it is though. It's just a dance/kite gimmick. A unit in flee stance shouldn't be able to attack others or heal (priests) imo.
  17. afaik not. It would be interesting to make a stamina mod, and then make a toggle for run/walk. But otherwise a toggle would be useless.
  18. If you have selected a group of units and are spread out and give them a formation, they will run to make the formation. I think the 'flee' stance also makes units run when being attacked.
  19. Can you post L380 (or the entire function)? If you already had a file named AttackingHelper in your mod in A24 it will be a conflict for A25. Because helpers/Attacking.js has been renamed to helpers/AttackHelper.js in A25. Devs made a handy PortA24toA25 wiki in case you aren't aware yet.
  20. A 'Read more' button in the mod selection download screen when selecting a mod would be nice. Directing the user to the mod on mod.io. (or place/call the full discription from mod.io in a new window ingame if thats possible)
  21. That's because some traders asked unfair prices. An unfair scale is actually one of the things God hates. And a temple is no place for doing bussiness, fair or unfair. He also fulfilled a prophecy doing that. Texts for reference: Jer 7:11, Mt 21:13, Ps 69:9, Pr 11:1
