Re: Playing as Kali

Thanks a lot, Incanur.
Very interesting. I will have another look at the "bug". Maybe it is working, after all.

Re: Playing as Kali

Thanks for info. If you have an old save from the game - can you judge from the name of the Jafar's city he has built it? I thought the AI was using sets of names (like German city names for one AI). What do you mean by Jafar "parked" units by your fortress? Boats - Is there a strange behavior with ...

Re: Playing as Kali

The reports are great reading, Incanur, keep them coming, please. May I ask just one question? I was surprised that you had Jafar with outposts on the other plane. I have personnally never witnessed any AI wizard who succesfully spreaded to the other plane, in any of my games. I also think I have fo...

Re: AI spell use

Yes, it was a mistake from me.
These spells have no special "extra value" for AI (so I thought they were totally neglected, but they get a small random chance).
Thanks for the reaction to both of you.

about petrify: this is ugly spell..... .... may be the magic immunity protect from the petrify is a bug. Ugly. yes.

Re: Which game concepts in MoM are broken?

OK. Back to the conceptual thing, and 1 step ahead, the resistance based spells need some general differenciation, to offer a mix of strategy. I am specifically adressing the death realm, because it has the majority of res_based spells. Right now, the choices are almost irrelevant, the variety of ef...

Re: Which game concepts in MoM are broken?

20% block per cross - hmm, that is a VERY good model. It is easy to read and understand (and I would substract that -2 from all units' crosses, to not complicate the matter). I would say that it still is totally conservative, no changes for low resistance units (which means I won't be using black sl...

Re: Which game concepts in MoM are broken?

At least we concur on the resistance being too high. Some very interesting suggestions for petrify. THe problem is that I never needed it, because I had better (cheaper) option. But I agree this is useful for these situation, after some balancing. (Shatter good only against one unit? And it is still...

Re: Which game concepts in MoM are broken?

@Incanur Giving the confusion spell as an example = more or less aggreeing with what I just said. Everything bar confusion is very unforgiving, it fails too often to represent a valid combat strategy (this the mathematical game theory as simply put as possible). Surely, Mind storm, Black prayer give...

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

Never ever I will be able to add opponents. While you could perhaps step around with some graphics, I cannot step around insufficient place for data. What I meant was changing the number of opponent's wizard picks, e.g. books/wizard traits (now it is 15 on impossible, the human player has 11). I cou...

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

I do not have the hex-addresses, but here is a simple way to find it: Take Magic.exe ( = setups the game ), ctrl+find "Oberic" and you'll see a small table of generic wizards, first come always the number of books from different colors, at the end I think is always the number of special trait. No ro...
