Alpha 26 Pre-release/Release Candidate Build Testing


Recommended Posts

btw: is there a reason why as Gaia I can select any resource, but when I select multiple and there's meat in there it only selects the meat? Why doesn't it just select all resources? I find that very inconvenient.

Spoiler

When I'm not sure if I want to play a map, I save, exit, load replay, change to Gaia and do an estimate on the wood (I don't like "hunger games" with scarce wood). Already not very convenient. I usually do that estimate with an area selection, but as soon as there's an animal in the area I only see the animal(s)... *frustrated grunt*

are the silhouettes consistently off for you or do they flicker? 

I'd say they're consistently on for me*. Didn't notice anything off so far; after that incident I opened up a save from the previous game and the silhouettes showed. Opened an earlier save from that "ambush" game:

*Except that "ambush". I believe I'd notice silhouette issues and that they were fine, and then they were suddenly not anymore when I went up that "ambush" hill.

@Gurken Khan do you have a large screen?

Nope. 1920x1080.

Edit2:

I saved when I was running up that hill, seems only that location is cursed:

I wonder if it's just because the hill is elevated. Perhaps try zooming in and out or panning around away from the hill. In any case, it seems like @BreakfastBurrito_007's issue is more severe, but they might not even be related.

I wouldn't know how the elevation could play into this. No matter the zoom or angle, the silhouettes stay off on that hill; something's even cutting them from units on lower ground:

I'm attaching that save, maybe someone could check if they can reproduce, or inspect that hill.

I'm guessing it's two separate issues.

Ok i reproduced, I think its just because the trees on those hills are not gaia. They are not resources, and are instead part of the map.

Not a huge issue IMO, but I agree @BreakfastBurrito_007's issue is different.

A torrent I'm seeding, it's an AppImage I created of the latest 0ad dev snapshot at svn rev 27077

This is as soon as I start a normal 1v1 game. If I did this on full-screen the Xbox Game Bar would instantly stop recording immediately when black bars or flickers appear at random times. Begins when doing a snap-in at opposing center, was about to go back to my base to actually place the house somewhere around mine.

Could you make a screenshot via F2? Does it contain black bars?

Also could you attach your system_info and hwreport (you might find them by paths from https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/GameDataPaths#VistaWindows10)?

Is freezing reproducible?

do han halberdiers need to be on pikeman class? ji are not pikes, and they have different stats anyway.

They originally had different stats, but then those different stats were stripped out. I made them (IIRC) have slightly higher attack and speed, but a couple less pierce armor (no shield). This was not liked, apparently

I feel like rather than trying to change these melee units' stats, we should just make formations useful and give more pierce armor to certain units when in certain formations. That would help solve the melee vs range debate and would also historical lend accuracy. 

But I digress...

at current revision, they do have different stats from other pikemen, but they still have the pikemen class.

you do, changing the role of formations in the gameplay would require a lot of work and the effects are not knowable until then. that's no alternative to just changing some stats now, it's not even comparable.

Nice. I thought that was taken out. I see no reason why every pikeman needs the exact same stats. Nor does every spearman need the same stats (e.g. Hoplites vs. "regular" spearmen). Just the same role.

Formations were originally supposed to do this, but put on the back burner for many years. I am not sure how difficult it would be to allow formations to have auras, since formations are templates like units are, can have actors, etc. Such an aura would probably use the "formation" "type", applying to all units within it.

I agree with @alre though that for now, simple unit template stat changes are all we have.

I would’ve thought that this would already be possible because of the Athens hero already does it. But maybe not because I would propose that units like spears, which have a shield, would get a pierce armor boost while units like archers, which have no shield, would not get a boost 

 

the current unit stat adjustment method just doesn't make a ton of sense. And formations right now don’t really have much purpose aside from making micro easier

The aura is generated by the hero, not the formation though. You don't want to have every unit in the formation generating auras, you want the formation itself to generate 1 aura that applies to units within it.
