Re: New version of catgod for Dom3.20

If you mean a message like "Bogus body number ###", it's working as designed. Catgod contains a list of the unit names I extracted from the game file. If the body number is greater than the number...

Re: New version of catgod for Dom3.20

That's an excellent question! There's a bunch of information in the pretender files I never quite figured out, including some long strings of zeros. Since I did all my testing with pretenders...

Re: Catgod pretender viewer now for Windows!

I don't recall there being any new pretender chassis in 3.23. But yes, if there are, it's trivial to add them.

Re: OT: Favourite Boardgames

If you're just starting out w/ Agricola, I strongly recommend playing its solitare scenario until you can beat it consistently. Just as w/ Dom3, there's a lot of things that you should get right in...

Re: Pike vs Cavalry

Dedas got it right: the lack of any notion of formation is a key problem for modeling a bunch of things. One knight charging into a bunch of infantry will kill a bunch before he gets killed or...

Re: Please help, urgent bug!

IndyPendant,

If you saved a copy of your files while you were having the problem, the Devs will probably want to look at them. Even if Obscuro is blameless, it seems like strange behavior.

Re: pretenders .2h file specification

Different file format for temporary pretenders? Well, now that's interesting. Thanks for finding this, QXel! http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif...

Re: Random items not random?

I've also gotten a Ring of Wizardry, a Staff of the Ivy King, and a Staff of the Elements in different games, as well as tons of trinkets. I usually play SP w/ Luck 3, 'cause it's fun.

Re: plz combine europe universalis: Rome and dom 3

Oh, it's not a hard problem. All it would take is access to the source code for both games and the folks who wrote them, a while to study the problem, and months to years of effort to merge all the...

Re: Research strategies

To support research, I usually push for three forts. The one in the home province is for capital-only mages, who often are the only way to get particular paths for the nation. One other fort cranks...

Re: Why don\'t tramplers suffer from Fire Shields?

Few people in their right minds would attack thru a wall of fire either, but it happens all the time in Dominions. You'd think they'd learn after their buddies were burned to a crisp, but no...

Re: AI spell casting priorities

Yup, and Ghost Wolves. From the little I can tell, the AI likes warm bodies on the battlefield, even if they're chaff.

Re: AI spell casting priorities

I have to agree w/ summoning, especially after the enemy has routed. If possible, I'd like gem-cost summoning only if scripted.

And while I'm wishing, I really would like a blacklist. ...

Re: recommended fire protection items?

At the high end for battle spells there's also Army of Gold (Alt9, E4) and Gaia's Blessing (Ench 9, N6E2) both of which 50% FR to all your troops. Gaia's blessing gives 50% resistance to the other...

Re: What is the story with those dominion ads??

I found the ad (well, the "fluttering corner" bit) distracting, and added shrapnel to my noscript block list. In that sense, the ad has been a bad for them, since I no longer see any of their ads.

Re: Early age Machaka, Lion Kings?

It would be sweet, yes. The placeholder entry has been in the game for at least a few versions now, though, so I haven't been holding my breath.

Re: vengeance of the dead, how it works with 1000+

Yup. I came across a description of a real-world thing much like VotD, and I think the Devs used it as the basis for the spell. After battle, some New Guinea tribesmen have nightmares where they...

Re: Dominions 3: popularity rising?

Re: Scripting Issue - Specifically Retreat Command

The right answer is to have two sets of scripts, one for normal battles and one for assassination attempts. Maybe the devs will add this to Dom4, if they write it.
