  • My own mod of sorts, x4 turns...

    What started as a simple mod of x4 in advance costs, turned into a larger mess when I approached AoM.

    Cradle III is my current choice of game type with this mod approach, as (so far) I only have to modify two files, and doesn't have a heavily scripted (slc) architecture.

    what the basic premise is:
    going into
    diff_db and changing # of turns, and years per turn to match a certain ratio to end up with similar end year per age...
    and
    advances?.txt and changing the costs to x4

    Thank god for a tool called ctpedit that allowed me to mass modify advance costs...

    but with Ages of Man... there was a lot more to be edited, to include slic files with references to g.year...

    However... even when I got it working (wasn't sure if I could ever find where the king's lifespan was defined), I'd have weird bugs in my game, sometimes at around turn 2000...

    one time I couldn't attack units after a certain turn.

    Anyways... I have a list (at home, I'm at work) that showed all the files I changed and what rules I applied, anyone care to help me go through the list and see where I can improve, what I might be missing?

    Here is what I did with AoM


    Modified all .txt and .slc files w/#include in AOM_script.slc containing g.year
    if g.year > 50, then
    g.year = g.year * 10

    AOMJosh_gamefile.txt
    AOMJosh_DiffDB.txt
    years per turn = years / 10 rounded up (2, 1)
    AOMJosh_Advance.txt
    science cost = cost * 10
    AOMJoshCRAB_map.txt
    Ultra Gigantic Maps from Cradle.
    AOMJosh_diplomod.txt

    AOMJosh_script.slc
    AOMJosh_EndSlveMSC4.slc
    AOMJosh_frenzy9.slc
    AOMJosh_HumanRepair.slc
    AOMJosh_misc.slc
    AOMJosh_misc.slc
    AOMJosh_Rebellion.slc
    AOMJosh_Religion.slc
    AOMJosh_Special10.slc
    AOMJosh_WatchTower5.slc

    for cradle (not sure about ages of man, maybe this was my bug)
    a duration variable in the
    feat file
    needed mass modifying


    As you can tell, my name is Josh
