  1. Dear all, thrilled by the new Alpha 0.26 - great job folks! Though - a little user interface inconvenience: 1 - when selecting a new mod from mod.io via the 0AD mods download menu, it is not possible to see simultaneously which mods version is already installed and which mod version is available for download (I know this is a luxury issue and the new nodal window cannot be moved, unfortunately, unless there is major redesign of the user interface mechanics). I you move the overlapping modal window borders a little bit, the existing mod versions could be seen and compared to those aversions available for download. 2 - sometimes new mods versions are not replacing older ones but are added as new mods. Wouldn't it be nice to have a button allowing to remove (delete) the installed instance of an existing mod? (kind of a clean-up process) ( I do know you could manually remove them from the directories but uI would prefer doing that from within the game) Thanks for your consideration! Best regards, Grautvornix
  2. Community Update (8/02/22) Over the course of a few months, we have continued to update our community centered-operations. Today we wish to share those changes and state our plans for the future. Discord Server Our Discord Server is used for many things. It is a community center at heart but also is a hub for everything else. Regular updates, exclusive polls, and an archive come together to make our Discord Server the thriving heart of our community. Our archive includes: Art, Music, Mod Lore, Cutscenes, and more. We are always active and ready to answer any questions you may have and take suggestions on lore, game mechanics, or other things you would like to see in the mod. We always love hearing from you. Wiki (Fandom) We have just begun to break ground on the Fandom platform in order to create a readily available repository of information regarding the mod's lore, mechanics, and more. The Wiki page is unfinished but it has an almost defined framework and we thought it was worth reporting on. Sub-Reddit A small but valuable piece of our community, our Sub-Reddit is basically our forum dedicated wholly to community interaction. We do post content reports here and there but the real goal is to respond to our community and create a friendly environment for discussion. Future Plans: Our current priority is to add our first faction to the game, The Adrestian Empire. The Empire will be the first to join the mod because of the result of a community poll we had a while ago. You can find more information on the Adrestian Empire here in one of our articles. We are also planning to expand our Wiki and continue to add content to it going beyond what it is at the moment. If you wish to help in any way, just let us know on our Discord Server or Sub-Reddit, and thank you. We are trying to avoid spoilers for the mod entirely in this update but we can give you this hint: the "Three Wars" in the title is not just for sake of naming it. Thank you for reading our Community Content Report for August 2, 2022, we hope you have a wonderful day.

  4. Fight the tyranny of the Archbishop as the Adrestian Empire or defend the "Holy Church" as the Knights of Seiros! Journey across Fodlan and take part in some of Fire Emblem's most iconic battles, but this time in an RTS format. As rumors of war begin to formulate in the surrounding villages due to the tensions between the Church of Seiros and the Empire, the Archbishop, Lady Rhea, forms an army in secret just in case the rumors become fact, what happens next is something entirely different than what she had expected and it all began with three students being chased in the woods by bandits... Release Date: TBD An Empire in the Making (View Original Post) The Adrestian Empire is located at the south end of Fodlan bosting the famous Black Eagle house to represent them at Garreg Mach Monastery which lies at the center of Fodlan. It is said that the founding of the Adrestian Empire was aided by Lady Seiros when they helped her defeat Nemesis (The King of Liberation). The "Crest of Seiros" runs through their family bloodline as a gift from the goddess for lending their strength to Lady Seiros. The Black Eagle house was named after the traditionally black armor of the Adrestian knights and the twin-headed eagle on the Empire's coat of arms. The Black Eagles' attendants this year are as follows: Edelgard (The only child left of House Hresvelg and the only heir to the throne of the Adrestian Empire), Hubert (House Vestra), Bernadetta (Only daughter of House Varley), Ferdinand (House Aegir, in line to become the next Prime Minister of the Empire), Capar (One of the sons of House Bergliez), Linhardt (House Hevring), Petra (House Macneary and in line for the throne of Brigid), Dorothea (The only commoner in Black Eagle). Help Wanted: If anyone wishes to help in the development of this mod we will be grateful to hear from you on our Discord Server. We are currently in the need of a 3d modeler, music help, and some artists. If you wish to help in any other way then you are always welcome on our team. Thank you.

  5. Hello everyone, I'm sharing with you this mod that I made long ago, hoping it is useful to somebody. The mod is named CircularCamera (official page on GitLab) and it provides nine new cameras, each pointing at a fixed position on the map. Each camera can be accessed with a hotkey. See image below. Features Nine new pre-set cameras are available: one points at the center of the map and eight point at the eight corners of the map. Jumping to any of these cameras can be done via a hotkey. Hotkeys can be edited from the Settings > Hotkeys menu. Distance of cameras from map center: the distance can be increased or decreased with CapsLock+Plus and CapsLock+Minus. The default distance from the map center can be restored with CapsLock+R. The default distance from the center, as well as the increasing/decreasing step can be adjusted from the user.cfg configuration file. Hotkeys: search for circularcamera in the Settings > Hotkeys menu: there you can edit all the relevant hotkeys. Mod installation Contribute The public repository is at this page. Everybody is very welcome to contribute, suggest, fork or simply give feedback. Have fun! CircularCamera.pyromod CircularCamera.zip
  6. Hello 0 A.D. friends! Many times I find myself in the situation of having many units under production from several buildings and I want to clear ALL the production queues simultaneously. This can happen for many reasons: maybe I want to get back some resources that had been allocated to units production; or maybe I suddenly need to change type of units being produced if I see that the game steers from the direction I expect. As far as I know (correct me if I'm wrong), there is no explicit hotkey that allows to clear all production queues simultaneously. It is also very annoying to clear production queues by clicking on icons one by one, especially when you have many buildings producing or many units being produced. So, I made a mod for this. The ResetQueue mod (official repository at this page) allows to bind a hotkey for clearing production queues of selected buildings. The default hotkey provided from this mod is Shift+Esc. This can be changed from the Settings > Hotkeys menu. I find this feature very useful and I often use it in game. I hope this feature will be present in a future version of the game. What do you think? Installation Contribute The public repository is at this page. Everybody is very welcome to contribute, suggest, fork or simply give feedback. Have fun!

  7. Hello everyone! I hereby present a 0 A.D. mod aimed at evaluating the rating of players. Official mod page on GitLab here. Introduction Before diving into the description, let me introduce the problem this mod aims to solve. In 0 A.D., the ELO system is used to rank players in the lobby. This is good; but is it representative of the players' skills? As you know, the rating system in 0 A.D. only takes into account 1v1 rated games. Team games do not contribute to the ELO score of a player, as well as 1v1 unrated games. Also, the scoring system only takes into account the outcome of a game (victory/defeat) and not the "performance" during the game. Can we do better? This mod uses statistics. It extracts data from all the replays of games you (the mod user) have played. So, if you have played 20 games (1v1s, team games, other..) with a player in the lobby whose name is (for example) strangeJokes, the mod will assign a rating to strangeJokes based on the 20 games you've played with them. The rating system The functioning of the rating system is described in detail here, but in short what it does is: it considers the average performance of the player during the entire game (and not only at game's end). the rating assigned to a player is a percentage: for example, a player with a rating of 5.00 performs a 5% better than other players on average, while a player with a rating of -5.00 performs a 5% worse than other players on average. you can customize the rating system by giving more importance to military, economy, exploration or other factors to the aim of calculating ratings. Keep in mind that this mod is based on statistics; data are taken from your (the mod user) replays. Statistics might not be fully representative of reality; therefore, a player's rating could be inaccurate, especially if you have played few games with that player. The more you play with a player, the more accurate the rating of that player is. Mod installation Explanatory pictures Contribute The public repository is at this page.

  8. 这个模组最初是2020年秋天在A23上开始做的,是个修改游戏玩法的模组,适应了我作为帝国时代3玩家的一些习惯。模组第一个版本刚做完的时候刚好A24就发布了,于是半年后我又从A25上从头开始做,到现在修修改改大致作出了想要的效果,所以在这里也发一下。因为我是中国人,大致的介绍我会发汉英两部分,英文部分是机翻,请以汉文内容为准。 This mod was originally started on A23 in the fall of 2020. It is a mod that modifies the gameplay and adapts to some of my habits as an Age of Empires 3 player. When the first version of the mod was just finished, A24 was released, so half a year later, I started from scratch on A25, and now the modifications have roughly achieved the desired effect, so I will post it here as well. Because I am Chinese, I will give a general introduction in Chinese and English. The English part is translated by machine. Please refer to the Chinese content. 相比A25这个模组主要改动如下: Compared with the A25, the main changes of this mod are as follows: 现在的版本是0.25.7,这里提供模组本体以及汉文补丁。 The current version is 0.25.7, here is the mod body and another Chinese patch(Players who do not understand Chinese do not need to download this).

  10. It looks like the community maps mod hasn't been updated since a23, so I've made a temporary fork of the project called community maps 2 It's pretty basic, but it gives access to the maps again. And I've run some migration scripts on the maps themselves to make them compatible with >=a24. Though I haven't checked them all for warnings or errors. If you notice any problems, just open a ticket on the community maps 2 repo and I'll try to fix things up; or you can make a PR if you feel like it. The pyromod file can be downloaded from the releases section
  11. Hello everyone! I'm Nagasushi. Some days ago I tried to register a forum account, but unfortunately it didn't get approved, so I have to borrow this account from someone to make a post for my new mod Res Gestae. Please download from my Github link here or at the end of this post. https://github.com/Nagasushi2021/Res_Gestae Res Gestae is intended to be a 'small overhaul mod', which changes many aspects of the game without diverging too far from vanilla, or adding too many complicated mechanics that will be hard to be adapted for the future versions of 0ad. We endeavour to provided a balanced gameplay that will be attested by mathematical calculations and matches between AIs and humans. We will also aim to make sure that the AI included in this mod will employ diversified strategies and tactics at the difficulties that will suit everyone, from absolute beginners to the multiplayer pros. Furthermore, there is an emphasis on the tactics, strategies, and particularly on the viability of diversified gameplay styles. Also as the name suggests, we draw our inspiration from real world history, which means we will try to emulate the military tactics they used, their army composition, and more particular features of each civilisation. Outline of the initial version: Pathfinder: twisted pathfinder parameters in order to prevent unit overlapping and exceedingly smooth movement. Units are able to block enemies properly. Subject to future changes. Unit changes (only done for citizen soldiers, need more testing): unit balance, and various changes making tactics and micromanagement possible. AI: I have made a bot called Catilina based on Petra bot, and tested it with @Yekaterina. Currently the medium difficulty is roughly equal to a 1300-1400 level human player. Note that this bot is intended for testing rather than competing against human players at the moment. We recommend 'balanced' behaviour, and 200-300 pop, very low to medium resource, small to medium map size settings. It should work on any map not divided by water regions (e.g. mainland). If you want to see two Catilina bots fighting against each other, we recommend small Corinthian Isthmus map, since they prefer to head to the opponent's base rather than fighting against its army directly on other maps. Techs: Merged damage techs and added movement speed techs to encourage combined army. ========================================================================================================= 0.0.4 Preview (not yet available on github) This update will focus on champions and clean up some existing civ features that will not be presented in Res Gestae, paving the way for civ differentiation in the next update. It will also include other gameplay changes and hotfixes. Hotfixes: Fixed some incorrect unit stats. Fixed champion movement issue (resulted by low returning rate+pushing mechanic+pathfinder parameters, reported by various players) Civ Features: Removed some existing civ features. Buildings: Towers have bonus against cavalry. (Towers had little use against early cav rush and they usually considered as not worthy in early game. This update makes towers the most effective way to defend against cav rush - an investment that can actually keep your base safe. And it won't a proper siege much harder. So consequently, if the rushing side finds the opponent's base well defended by towers, it would be a better idea to find some hunts or rush another player instead. This helps with building a rush-boom-turtle-rush counter dynamic. Units: This updates contains the initial changes for champions: based on my mathematical model fr production and battle strength, champions, particularly melee infantry types, have much better cost efficiency than in vanilla a25. This makes waiting for phase three a good choice alongside attacking with citizen soldiers and rams in phase two. Different civs have genuinely different champions, with their pros and cons. Further balancing adjustments will be needed. Mercenaries: they are based on a23 mercenaries now - good at fighting; bad at gathering; expensive but fast to train Siege units stats changes AI: various minor AI changes ========================================================================================================= 0.0.3 The first major update of Res Gestae: AI difficulties: There are nine AI difficulty levels now - I found the highest one most entertaining for myself. Note that the rating intervals are merely guidelines, which do not reflect your level in vanilla multiplayer. AI: Various improvements including use of towers, change of combat behaviours, adjustments for gameplay changes, basic support for tiny map and more. Diversification: Catilina has different behaviours in each match - it might rush or choose to attack at different time. Gameplay changes: Arsenal and rams are available for all factions in Phase 2, which encourages more diversified strategies other than booming and attacking when pop cap is reached. Consequently, phase 3 will give players much better options to boost economy and army strength (in this version some p3 techs already have reduced cost). Champions will be addressed together with civ differentiation in future updates. Techs: reduced cost for many p3 techs and phase3 itself. Units: slightly changed gathering rates. Rams have significantly more health and lower damage - siege will last longer and winning battles is much more important for both sides: attacking side should not overspam rams; defending side should not try to 'pick out' rams before defeating attacker's army. Buildings: economic buildings and palisades are much easier to destroy. Lower hack resistance for almost all buildings. Stones towers deal more damage and cost more resources - it should be a good option to garrison towers when you are under attack. Slightly better vision for all towers. Other changes: slightly changed formations. 'Random' draws each civ with equal probability now. ========================================================================================================= Planned features that will NOT be implemented in recent updates: (due to compatibility issues or amount of work required) AI border contact management - we do not recommend having AI closer than 1v1 small mainland (e.g. 1v1 on any tiny map, or 2v2 on any small map) Naval overhaul and AI naval management UnitAI changes - compatibility issues with current release and svn AI defence overhaul - Catilina is using the defence modules of Petra, which should be substantially reworked. Only minor improvements will be implemented in recent updates. ========================================================================================================== MOD IS NOW PLAYABLE. COMPATIBLE WITH ALPHA 25. https://github.com/Nagasushi2021/Res_Gestae Still a work in progress. Please report bugs and suggest balancing and gameplay ideas
  12. petra_extreme is a new mod that adds a higher level of difficulty to the AI Download
  13. I made a mod called 10ad. It changes the game very little. faster (and cheaper) economy upgrades and fewer houses required. ## Details These upgrades are all free and very fast to complete. ### Storehouse and Farmhouse You can do the upgrades immediately after building them. There is only one upgrade for each resource, but it increases your gathering rate to the same value you'd get after doing the village, town, and city upgrade in the unmodded version of 0ad. ### Housing You can do the home garden upgrade immediately after building a house. It will give you an 80% population bonus. Download
  14. Why ? What is there to say: I like to look at something different once in a while. Installation note: This mod is for a26. When you use multiple mods it's probably best to enable this one last (after) everything else (no guarantee that it will work in every case tho). Current version: 0.26.3 Where to find it: It is available through the in-game mod downloader or manually from: And in case you don't like the new background: There is now the option to enable or disable it and switch between the new and the old backgrounds. Just go to the options and click on "Disable new background" This version should work on small as well as widescreens. _________________________________________________________ Credits to: @Langbart who gave me the idea and with whom I discussed much about the design/ who generally helped, @wowgetoffyourcellphone @Stan` @Radiotraining for tips on the design and a general thanks to everybody who gave their opinions and suggestions in this thread. If you have any issues or problems with the mod please post them in this thread.
  15. Talking about mercenaries: This mod gives the ptol hero Ptolemy I the ability to actively convert mercenaries from the enemy for 250 metal each. So why is this mod called Midas you may ask? Because you have no choice. When you have metal left and an enemy merc is in his aura, the unit will convert until you have no metal left. mercenary-patreon.zip merc.mp4
  16. Auto-Queue is an ability of a building to loop through production queue indefinitely as long as resources and population limits permit it. So instead of training units repeatedly, you can simply set the queue once and set the building to auto-queue. If you played Age of Mythology you probably have used this features. In Rise of Nations it's called Infinite Queue. I have searched through the forum in case this topic has been discussed before, but I can't find any. So I decided to make a small mod to demonstrate this feature, inspired mostly from RoN's infinite queue. I attached the mod below (also accessible from GitHub). Here is the screenshot of 0 A.D (Alpha 24b release) using Auto-Queue mod. The button is accessible in middle panel at the bottom (command section, beside delete and rally point button). When the button is toggled on, units in queue will be indefinitely looped. It doesn't work with technologies as they are one time only. I know that auto-queue is generally considered as a rather controversial feature in RTS, as it is reducing micro but also can be dangerous if left unattended. I personally think that 0 A.D. vision is to reduce repetitive actions, so this feature is a must. What do you think about adding auto-queuing in 0 A.D? 0AD-Auto-Queue.zip
  17. Heavily inspired by the morale mod: https://wildfiregames.com/forum/topic/37755-morale-system-for-0-ad And this idea: https://wildfiregames.com/forum/topic/38187-give-elephants-area-damage/ I want to explore a new mechanic for elephants. (Just for fun, so the effects may be unrealistic) Original version, now outdated: Historically elephants were especially effective against cavalry, because if the horses were not used to the presence of elephants, they would get very nervous and flee when they saw something that big walking towards them. This would disrupt the battle formation and cause disturbance in the enemy lines. I am basing this mostly on wikipedia quotes, so if some of the historians want to explain more if this is historically accurate or if these are just some anecdotes, feel free to do so Therefore the Idea would be that elephants have an aura that changes the stance of enemy cavalry to passive and forces them to flee. It should only affect unhabituated / basic rank cavalry, as the horses loose their fear over time. So advanced /elite cavalry is not affected. Current Version (V 3.0.0): Elephants have the aura "Fear" which affects a random percentage of all basic rank enemy Infantry and all of the basic rank enemy cavalry. The affected units get scared and will flee, but they try to attack again. Every time the elephants get hurt (under a certain threshold) there is the probability that they also get scared and fall into rage. So you have no longer control over them and they may attack your own units. scary-elephants.zip battle-test.mp4 So let me hear what you think about it Thanks to @wowgetoffyourcellphone and @azayrahmad for the tips.
  18. Download to test: https://github.com/JustusAvramenko/theban_greeks Ready for testing! Works with Alpha 24. Adds the Theban civilization to the game as a playable faction. They include 3 new heroes, 2 champions, custom actors, a fix for the plumed Boeotian helmet, 2 special technologies, a team bonus, and more! Will release on Mod.io in 2 weeks or sooner if all the bugs are ironed out!
  19. Introduction: The purpose this mod is to clearly define the role of buildings, which then leads to a (slightly) more realistic city layout. It is a follow up to this proposal: https://wildfiregames.com/forum/topic/37294-storehouse-and-farms-rework please look there for additional reasons why I think these changes are good. So please take a look at the following building and ask yourself the following questions: Does this look like a place that you can pack full of soldiers and defend like a fortress? Does it look like a good place to store your food, stone or metal? Well, at least to me it doesn't. And this is imo one of the reasons for the gameplay balance problems. Therefore, introducing a mod, that clearly redefines the role of the basic buildings. Features: The civic center is no longer an all-purpose storehouse nor an easy to defend mini fortress. Its ability to shoot arrows has been removed and replaced by an aura, that increases the attack and armor of soldiers close to it. That is done because it is the center of your civilization, which should give the soldiers a boost of morale and it also prevents you from getting overrun in the first 5 minutes of the game. The storehouse is now the main place to store wood/metal/stone and its cost are reduced to 50 wood. Wood can still be stored in the CC to allow wood income in situations where all storehouses are destroyed. The farmstead is now the main place to store food and its cost are reduced to 50 wood. What do I hope are the benefits? A city layout that looks more realistic (e.g https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Forum) and less like someone decided to turn the center of their city into one giant farming area. Easier to understand game logic. Defensive structures are for defense, economic structures are for economy. Better ability to rush in early game Because I don't want to make two mods, there are also other changes (maybe more unrealistic) based on the following complaints I have read on the forums: Rushing is too hard defensive structures are too effective (e.g. https://wildfiregames.com/forum/topic/37687-lets-fight-gameplay-balance-mod/) Changes: Towers: Towers do no longer have an minimum distance between them, because that restricts player freedom (and I don't like it ) To balance that out , their ungarrisoned arrow count is reduced to 0, because it was imo not realistic that they had a default arrow count (indicating a person inside) but they did not contribute to the pop limit. To have any effect of the towers, you now either need to keep men around or let them stay inside, which should prevent an extreme overuse. The tech is removed, that adds one standard arrow to towers The tech is removed, that gives 40% more arrows per garrisoned soldier The stone tower can now garrison only 3 soldiers (same as the sentry tower) but it is still harder to capture and more resistant. Palisade related: Palisades have very weak crush damage, which means that rams and catapults are way more effective against them Women now have a torch as weapon, which allows them to burn palisades. (A few hits are enough, the palisade will continue to burn until its gone) Here is a test of how effective different unit types are at destroying palisades: test.mp4 Nice new fire effects: showacse.mp4 Here is the mod (v 0.0.3): increased-realism.zip
  20. Overview This mod adds morale system to 0 A.D. Please read an overview of morale in Wikipedia page here. This mod tries to represent military morale and to some extent also employee morale (for workers). Morale system here is inspired from a mix between Total War and Stronghold style morale. So basically the higher the morale, the better your units at gathering, building, and fighting, and vice versa. Morale is influenced by unit's health, being attacked, being near other units, etc. On a very low morale, units will flee the battlefield. I originally develop this mod for Happiness system in my City Building Mod, however it became more complicated so I decided to release it separately as Morale system. Therefore, this mod is designed to be as bare-boned and customizable as possible, so it will be compatible to many mods, although the mod should be quite playable as it is. Features Every unit has morale icon to represent its current state. Some aspects that can influence unit morale: Presence of other units on viewing distance. Allies increase morale and enemies decrease morale. Being attacked. Arrow shots would decrease morale, even if it missed. Health increase/decrease. Morale would increase/decrease accordingly. Unit death would cause significant morale decrease to nearby allies and vice versa. Low morale can cause a unit to have decreased gathering rate, building rate, and attack rate. Extremely low morale cause unit to flee from enemy and became passive. Units reaching max morale would cheer and start becoming violent. Structures can also have morale. Structures with low morale can have reduced attacks speed and also slower training and research time. Garrison units with high morale inside for increased morale. Some variables that can be customized for further modding (mostly need to edit component variable but later planned to be customizable via template): Significance (the higher unit significance the higher influence it has on nearby units) Range (by default it uses unit vision but can be altered) RegenRate (default morale regenerate rate) etc (please look at Init function of Morale.js) Installation Clone or download the mod from GitHub page to My Games/0ad/mods folder. (I will add mod.io link later) Contribute This mod is very much a work in progress. Everyone is certainly welcome to contribute by testing the mod and tell me what you think! If you found issue or have some ideas you'd like to implement, feel free to discuss here or even create Pull Request to the GitHub repo. I also currently have no access to a better quality computer to create high quality screenshot/video preview, so you can share your screenshots here as well! Credits Thank you very much to: @Freagarach, @wraitii for helping out on problems I encountered with some components (see the discussion behind the scene here) @Grapjasfor letting me adapt his Wounded feature from Grapejuice mod (another interesting mod you should check) @wowgetoffyourcellphone for arrow morale damage suggestion and fear units (implementable by Significance, but not yet).
  21. Let's Fight 0 A.D. is an open-source RTS game (https://play0ad.com/) Let's Fight is a 0 A.D. gameplay balance mod for Alpha 24 (Xšayāršā) Motivation Currently the meta of Alpha 24 is skewed towards turtling via walls, towers, and forts. This problem is exacerbated by the advantage that archers, units that already have high range, have over other ranged units. This mod aims to provide gameplay that is more rewarding for aggressive players and roughly equalize the strength of civilizations to allow for a greater variety of strategies. In particular, there is an emphasis on encouraging players to utilize different strategies depending on the civilization and situation of the game. Several balance changes in this mod were based on discussions in the "Gameplay Discussion" and "Balancing Discussions" sub-forums.

  22. Forum discussions are nice and all, and there is certainly no shortage of good ideas, however, what matters is how things work out in game. Because using the development version and applying patches is challenging for many, I've decided to bundle several related patches proposed for A25 as a mod for A24. Their purpose is to address the frequent complaint that defensive structures are too effective in A24 and therefore attacking is too difficult. The eight patches included here are: https://code.wildfiregames.com/D2845 https://code.wildfiregames.com/D2854 https://code.wildfiregames.com/D3601 https://code.wildfiregames.com/D3602 https://code.wildfiregames.com/D3668 https://code.wildfiregames.com/D3672 https://code.wildfiregames.com/D3684 https://code.wildfiregames.com/D3686 I sincerely believe each of them is an improvement on its own and also that they work nicely in combination with each other. Nevertheless, I'm biased by my own ideas and different people may have different opinions, of course. Hence this mod, to broaden the audience and have more people play and test. Feedback is appreciated, especially from people who've played at least several games with it. Anyway, here it is: balancing_defensive_structures.zip I've also uploaded it to mod.io to make it available via the in-game mod downloader, but I'm not sure it's working (@Itms?): https://0ad.mod.io/balancing-defensive-structures
  23. So I'd like to create a Morale system mod... My plan is to make it to be some kind of Aura of units that influences other units in range. However I need it to be more dynamic, i.e. the effect strength would change according to unit's own morale strength. I decided to create separate component. Morale.js. There are two mechanisms in this component: (1) Morale level and how it affects unit performance. This is similar to how Health.js works. (2) Unit effect on other units in range based on its own morale level. This is intended to be similar to how Auras.js works. The first one already work, but the second one is not yet. I still don't understand why the effect is not applied yet. This is the repository on GitHub: https://github.com/azayrahmad/morale-system The problematic part is in simulation/components/Morale.js. Here are the snippet of the relevant parts: Init: Morale.prototype.Init = function() { this.affectedPlayers = []; ... this.CleanMoraleInfluence(); ... }; The CleanMoraleInfluence(), intended to be similar to Clean() function from Aura.js. The target here is to apply morale influence to any allied units in 10m range. (GetAllies() also includes player's own units right?) Morale.prototype.CleanMoraleInfluence = function() { var cmpRangeManager = Engine.QueryInterface(SYSTEM_ENTITY, IID_RangeManager); //Remove Morale let targetUnitsClone = []; if (this.targetUnits) { targetUnitsClone = this.targetUnits.slice(); this.RemoveMoraleInfluence(this.targetUnits); } if (this.rangeQuery) cmpRangeManager.DestroyActiveQuery(this.rangeQuery); //Add Morale var cmpPlayer = Engine.QueryInterface(this.entity, IID_Player); if (!cmpPlayer) cmpPlayer = QueryOwnerInterface(this.entity); if (!cmpPlayer || cmpPlayer.GetState() == "defeated") return; this.targetUnits = []; let affectedPlayers = cmpPlayer.GetAllies(); this.rangeQuery = cmpRangeManager.CreateActiveQuery( this.entity, 0, 10, affectedPlayers, IID_Identity, cmpRangeManager.GetEntityFlagMask("normal"), false ); cmpRangeManager.EnableActiveQuery(this.rangeQuery); } Here is the apply and remove morale influence functions. The intention is to apply the effect (add Morale regenrate by 1 per second) and remove it if no longer in range). Morale.prototype.ApplyMoraleInfluence = function(ents) { var cmpModifiersManager = Engine.QueryInterface(SYSTEM_ENTITY, IID_ModifiersManager); cmpModifiersManager.AddModifiers( "MoraleSupport", { "Morale/RegenRate": [{ "affects": ["Unit"], "add": 1 }] }, ents ); } Morale.prototype.RemoveMoraleInfluence = function(ents) { if (!ents.length) return; var cmpModifiersManager = Engine.QueryInterface(SYSTEM_ENTITY, IID_ModifiersManager); cmpModifiersManager.RemoveAllModifiers("MoraleSupport", ents); } And lastly OnRangeUpdate. This should run apply and remove functions when units are moving in/out of other units range right? Morale.prototype.OnRangeUpdate = function(msg) { if(this.rangeQuery) { this.ApplyMoraleInfluence(msg.added); this.RemoveMoraleInfluence(msg.removed); } } I have been looking at the code all day and still don't understand why does the effect not apply. In the repo I added template units that includes Morale which start at 50%. The intention is that every players unit within 10m range should have increased Morale, but they don't. If you want to test this with Aura and see how I intend this to work, you can put these snippet inside template_unit.xml: <Auras datatype="tokens"> morale_friendly </Auras> Any help would be extremely appreciated. Thank you!
