DanW58 updated the diff for D3603: Water-Patch.

Solved the problem of reflections being too faint.
Solved a problem with artifacts on land; it yielded to a number changed in the Schlick approximation from 1.0 to 1.15.
Found another mistake: The refracted bottom had no incident lighting computed; it was essentially an emitter.
Added a hack to make coasts exhibit a darker band resembling wetness. It was at the cost of draining some of the water (lowering the level, optically).
Added crossing waves at 90 degrees with different scaling, to try to break or hide the tiled look of waves.

wraitii added a comment to D3601: [gameplay] lower city phase territory increase.

An alternative that I would maybe prefer would be to generalise the 'military colony' building, with an 'outpost' building that's relatively cheaper & weaker, but acts as a territory root to claim territory. Possibly we'd want to give another bonus to civil centres though.

Fri, Feb 26, 9:33 PM
Nescio added a comment to D3601: [gameplay] lower city phase territory increase.

Civic centre costs ought to be revisited regardless of this patch. Right now they're very expensive, making it really hard to rebuild after your last centre has been destroyed. I think e.g. 600 wood, 300 stone, 0 metal would be more reasonable. Anyway, that's something for a different patch.

Why is that?
[EDIT] Ah, I think you mean ResourceGatherer/BaseSpeed?

Yeah, I did: the current situation (replacing the rates of each resource sub-type) was done to ensure treasures were still gatherable; now they're in a separate node, that technology file can be cleaned up significantly.
When writing my previous reply I copied and pasted the wrong lines, I apologize for the confusion, I should have checked before clicking “Submit”.

Why not? Resource regeneration makes especially sense for fish and fruit. Moreover, I don't really understand why it would work for animals (meat) but not for them (fish and fruit), they're not that different, are they?

Essentially regenerating resources will lead to one of two things:

  • it's infinite
  • it's micro-intensive and annoying.

Angen added a comment to D3488: [gameplay] lower unit movement speed.

just note.
slower units would mean more time for ranged units to kill them, they need speed to get to them relatively fast

Thu, Feb 25, 3:26 PM
Nescio added a comment to D3488: [gameplay] lower unit movement speed.

If anything, making the default Walk Speed "10" might make more sense.

Given that archer attack ranges were lowered (from 72+4+4 to 60) recently, I think a lower base movement speed is justified. Moreover, some people somehow complained maps were smaller; having a lower base speed could give a larger feel (as does a smaller land grap: D3601).

The unit that really bothers me is the ranged cavalry, they are very slow.
For infantry I would be willing to see it a little faster, but I have no problems as it is now

If infantry is a bit faster and cavalry is left unchanged, then ranged cavalry will effectively be relatively slower.

I don't think we can make Archer cavalry much faster without completely breaking the game though.

I think changing the 0.835× to 0.9× could be tried, especially since cavalry melee ranges are much longer now (D3483).

Thu, Feb 25, 3:16 PM
Nescio added a comment to D3599: [gameplay] tweak elephant archer again.

Unrelated, but are you up to make a "normalise armour" path?

Yes, I am; I was actually planning on that for A25 anyway. D3397/rP24689 did it for animals, D2956 does is for ships, and D3600 does it for foundations. Once that one is committed I intend to standardize structure resistances; soldiers can follow later.
As for elephant archers, 300 + 4,3,15 is about the same as 400 + 1,1,12; I could include that here, if you like.

(@wraitii Please mind the effect this has on poison/fire damages.)

I don't think the poison (Mauryan maiden archer) and fire (Iberian champion cavalry) damages are particularly balanced right now.

Freagarach added a comment to D1718: Decay/regenerate option for resources..

Yes it is limited, but not minimal and I feel like making it more compleat also increases complexity _a lot_ which reduces the chance of review/merge. IMHO we can have this as a first step and the internals can be changed/generalised later.
(Also good to notice that the gameplay affecting template changes will (at least should) not be committed.)
