Re: Elemental: Fallen Enchantress

Hmm, I think I've heard the "It feels like less than the sum of it's parts" thing before. Seems like a common complaint. Though, if it's just the "success and failure often feel arbitrary" problem,...

Elemental: Fallen Enchantress

The new game from Stardock is out.
Anyone from the Dom3 veterans played it yet? Opinions?
It seems to have 'some' similarities with Dom3 because heroes seem to be able to catch lots of strange...

Re: Conquest of Elysium 3 dev log

I agree, that the Desura forum is a bit too 'spartanic' for my tastes.
The player made forum coe3.proboards.com looks much better.
I'll probably post some questions there to support it a bit.

Re: CoE3 release

Re: CoE3 game variation ideas

Isn't it possible to compensate this a bit by giving classes with a clear disadvantage a compensation?
Something like more units or money at the start?

I guess competitive games might be...

Re: CoE3 AAR: A Chronicle of the Interregnum

It was a great AAR, thanks for taking the time to do it. :)

That really kept my interest in the game growing and I'm eager awaiting the release now.
Therefore I'll definitely buy the game.

Re: Conquest of Elysium 3 dev log

Well, it's indeed grey(checked it with paint). I guess the redish appearance comes from the red panels in some of the windows.

I'd also keep it diplomatic. Just use a good looking background for...

Re: Conquest of Elysium 3 dev log

Yes, that's the reason why you have to use a combat window.
The combat window has a clean dark background color, but the background surrounding the window would be the map or a background image. I...

I hope there will be some modding options available in the future.
Most of what I'm seen looks good or at least okay, but the all black cmbat screen is a bit too boring for my taste.

Re: Gameplay video found :)

Music is way better than in Dom3, though I often use my own collections, so it's wouldn't have been a big issue anyway.

Though, the interface could be a bit richer. A map and maybe using the space...

Re: CoE3 AAR: A Chronicle of the Interregnum

What exactly are Hands of Glory? It seems to be some kind of resource like production or so, but I'm not sure if I understood it right.

Combat preparation seems to be a bit easier than in Dom3,...

Re: Conquest of Elysium 3 dev log

Well, elves have their origins in the norse mytholgy, therefore it's not something Tolkien just came up out of the blue.
I think they were called Ljosalfar, "Light elves" and kind of related to the...

Do the summoning rituals always summon the same type of creature or do they vary?

Do the recruitment sites have some alignment preconditions such as certain troops not joining super evil...

Re: Conquest of Elysium 3 dev log

I've just seen Gandalf's new AAR where his ally started on the other side of the map, and I wonder if it's possible to add an option to force allies to be close to each other.

Oops, almost forgot that Dom3 has experience. Didn't play it for a while now, and I can't remember it having a real impact.

Re: Conquest of Elysium 3 dev log

How are the classes and the races connected? Both Baron and Necromancers sound like human leaders just with opposite alignments (Good & Evil).

Can units get better besides giving them equipment....

Re: Conquest of Elysium 3 dev log

Thanks for answering all my questions.
Binding the spells to specific locations sounds great.
This really forces you to use the map for your purposes.
I also can't play a fixed strategy every time...

But if there's neither spell research nor building, then how does a player get more powerful?

Re: Conquest of Elysium 3 dev log

What about teching? The ultimate 'core' of Dominions 3 was spell research with the goal of creating the most overpowered, broken and unbalanced super monster allowed within the rule system.

Re: Conquest of Elysium 3 dev log

How does the resource system / economic model work in CoE3?
I guess it's more simple than in Dom3, isn't it?

Can you build stuff? Cities? Buildings?

Re: Conquest of Elysium 3 dev log

I wonder why CoE3 should be more for single player than multi player in comparison to Dom3.
Usually, games with a faster pace are better for MP because they don't take so long.
Especially if CoE3...
