Dream of gamer ( 16 players game)


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
 


What do you think of the possibility of making 12-player games see 16 players?


@team 0AD, what are the technological limits? The generation of random cards?

 

Of course many will say that the game is not optimized enough for this but I think it can be playable with 100 / 150pop and a good map.

It would be really cool that we are free to play at 12 or 16... 

 

Thank you all !

Only your pc + pathfinder is the limit.

If I am not wrong, some data types used in the code fit the number of players. So it would require some careful work. (It's not like if there was just a number to change everywhere.)

As fatherbushido said the way the game player data is stored makes it difficult to or I would say impossible without changing how many things works inside the engine. Most data concerning the number of players is implicit encoded in one sole variable (to "compress" the data) for all players instead of a variable for each. The current limit is a hard 8 players + gaia.

From the side of the map's playability: As elexis said, the problem resides in that the current maps just aren't made for more than 8 players.

I think this thread has been answered. Aside from the extra code and removing the player limit assumptions, performance is the biggest issue.

Indeed, and they likely have very different limitations because they use very different engines. They also probably are developed by very different  individuals. Of course this is does not mean there is nothing that can be done. But this is not something which has a huge priority.

In fact it was even attempted in the past by @nani see: https://code.wildfiregames.com/D1662
