[Gameplay] Han unit roster restructure and other balancing adjustments

After feedback on the first RC's : https://wildfiregames.com/forum/topic/83323-balancing-the-han/
This version of the roster seems to have a minimal concensus.
This removes some units from the very big roster of the Han, restructures it and changes the cavalry crossbow champion for an infantry one due to histrorical issues.
It furthermore reverts the changes to the champion infantry crossbow template introduced in rP26469 as that nerf wasn't necesarry.
This means that the Han and the Macedonians now have a champion crossbow unit with the same stats.

Also:

Fixes #6560 by only keeping the "academy" templates, so that the Han can now only train champions from the academy. Therefore, this reverts parts of rP26632 and all of rP26633.

How to port my mod  PortA25ToA26 – Wildfire Games

What to do if I have an error or notice something weird?

Post your commands.txt (replay) and the interestinglog.html file from your folder. You can also reply to this thread.

What to do if the game crashes?

Upload your crashlog.dmp and crashlog.txt  see https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/GameDataPaths

What to do if I have an Out Of Sync?

You should go in your logs folder, find the replay (commands.txt at least), the mainlog/interestinglog and find the OOS dump folder. Zip all these files and upload them here.
We need the reports from two players to compare them: One OOS and one non-OOS players at least should upload their oos_dump files.

Things you may want to test (non-exhaustive)

  1. Launch a random game
  2. Launch a skirmish.
  3. Connect to the lobby
  4. Play on the lobby with someone
  5. Play in LAN
  6. Launch Atlas and try things out there
  7. Open Unit tests demo (To see if there any breakage in displaying entities) (It's in scenarios)
  8. Enable feedback and see if it works (Main menu) See this  video
  9. Connect to and use mod.io
  10. Test replaying new games
  11. Test Screenshots (F2)
  12. Test deleting all saved games
  13. Test Big Screenshots (Maj+F2)
  14. Test hotkeys
  15. Test Saving and loading a game.
  16. Test Quickload/Quicksave

And of course playing games.

How to port my mod  PortA25ToA26 – Wildfire Games

What to do if I have an error or notice something weird?

Post your commands.txt (replay) and the interestinglog.html file from your folder. You can also reply to this thread.

What to do if the game crashes?

Upload your crashlog.dmp and crashlog.txt  see https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/GameDataPaths

What to do if I have an Out Of Sync?

You should go in your logs folder, find the replay (commands.txt at least), the mainlog/interestinglog and find the OOS dump folder. Zip all these files and upload them here.
We need the reports from two players to compare them: One OOS and one non-OOS players at least should upload their oos_dump files.

Things you may want to test (non-exhaustive)

  1. Launch a random game
  2. Launch a skirmish.
  3. Connect to the lobby
  4. Play on the lobby with someone
  5. Play in LAN
  6. Launch Atlas and try things out there
  7. Open Unit tests demo (To see if there any breakage in displaying entities) (It's in scenarios)
  8. Enable feedback and see if it works (Main menu) See this  video
  9. Connect to and use mod.io
  10. Test replaying new games
  11. Test Screenshots (F2)
  12. Test Big Screenshots (Maj+F2)
  13. Test hotkeys
  14. Test Saving and loading a game.
  15. Test Quickload/Quicksave

And of course playing games.

Spoiler

Here is the first 'Release Candidate' of Alpha 26 - Zhuangzi

Downloads - Current bundles are for SVN revision r26926/0ad6d7bbedf4edb0a5053539b99c5c3295934516

Things to note:

  • Mind your mods -> they might introduce issues or Out Of Sync.
  • Save your A25 config file somewhere, ideally.

And 'Laozi Gate' instead of 'LaoziGate'?

I asked that question about the "GreatTower". It's probably the very same thing. In the German translation, I put a space character.

Imho it definitely should get a space. (I have no idea what the Great Tower is.)

So the 'idle workers' thingy now has a number; but it shows '9' while i have ten citizens not doing anything. Don't horsies count?

horsies do count (in fact everything that has the class "worker" counts)

In the case of the han, the minister isn't a worker and therefore doesn't count in the counter / he can't be idle as he can't actually work

@maroderBut horsies don't have the 'worker' class. ;)

Right. It took me a bit to figure out the Minister has 2 pop count. (I just subtracted 1 from my pop, that's why I thought i had 10 idles...)

Hellas random map is waaaay too bright. It hurts my eyes. Tweaking the sun angle just a bit makes it much better. On a general note, the sun should not produce overrexposed maps when at the zenith (which it does on other maps, too). There is a "sun overbrightness" slider anyway (which is at zero in this map).

IMHO, the install script (Windows) should default to creating a desktop shortcut (opt-out instead of opt-in). It is way easier to delete one shortcut too much than having to navigate through obscure folders to find the game's EXE file if you forgot to check it (like I did multiple times just now).

Some feedbacks:

  • Can't see hosted games in the lobby
  • Ratings don't work
  • Added graphics settings = good. 

 

Han-Specific:

  • Magonels are powerful and accurate - good. 
  • Crossbow infantry is useless - bad
  • Economy is amazing with the Han, especially their farming: 41 farmers on only level 1 farming upgrade could sustain unit spam. 
  • The civic centre's footprint is a lot larger than it's actual size, so there are bands surrounding the main building where you can't build anything. This is a bit confusing when you are building fields around the CC. 
  • Storehouses look too similar to civilian houses, which in turn looks identical to farmsteads. (No problem, can be resolved by StarGUI)
  • Imperial Academy??? I would recommend decreasing their price or move some champions to barracks as the Han really needs champions. 
  • Sun Tzu's Art of war tech is too expensive.

It would be nice to check if @Freagarach theory still work.

@maroder @smiley do you think you can fix hellas ?

German language sometime tends to let speakers create very long sentences ... the tool tip on the upper right corner needs to get more space (or the translation needs to get shorter).

The build date in the left corner on the bottom seems to be incorrect (25.05.2022), guessing it must have been in the very last days.

That's because of the update it can do. the defensive CC is bigger and to avoid it clipping other buildings after being updated, the standard version needs to have a larger footprint as well.

Just removing the line "!define MUI_FINISHPAGE_SHOWREADME_NOTCHECKED" should do the trick.

Are you sure it's not for well, the readme?

Ah yeah thanks for reminding me of this. Two C++files control this and since we do not do a full rebuild the date doesn't get updated.

The translation seems fine to me. I guess it's just that German words are longer on average. Since space isn't that critical in that corner, allowing the box to have a line or two more seems like the best solution for me. But I don't know if we have someone working on UI.

Since cut-off sentences are obviously not ideal, maybe alternatively the German translation could be shortened to fit in the box.

Having done an initial read through and evaluation of the civ changes, Four things have stood out to me. 

Firstly the Athenian second phase champion marine, I like it, a lot, enough to actually play Athens more.

Secondly the Persian champion cavalry archer, a nice addition, however identical to to the champion chariot in stats and also unlocked along with the champion cavalry. Persian chariots are now a redundant unit and will never see play again unless for pure aesthetic reasons.

And thirdly, and more personally, the Roman civ overview is a pathetic far cry from  A23, three alphas and Rome has received nothing new in that time period, just a significant loss of unique features and a few returned features. Far as I am concerned Rome has been the harshest treated civ out of everything. At least give the Roman players something please. 

Also fourthly, Han is good, I like the clear effort to give it lots of interesting features, It does make me depressed that other civs are not as differentiated though.

catapults have been buffed and so have spear cav. Keep in mind that new features are not the only way to improve a civ, and seemingly unrelated balance changes may open up many more gameplay opportunities for that civ.
