I think personally, most modern games are way overbalanced. It's like the saying "I'm special, just like everyone else". Some of these big budget modern games have game designers playtesting them until all the game choices are meaningless. Should I take +1 to strength or +1 to intelligenc...

In the original MOM, I think you used diplomacy chiefly for trading spells really... to get stuff you might not get.. in your spellbook I always wondered what would happen if you had peace treaties for x turn type deals (or any kind of similar deals) were enforcable.. Or maybe you could break them b...

I used to be like you, playing only hard. I believe the preferred way to win impossible is to hit them hard and fast rather than bunkering down. It doesn't matter what strategy you use (11 book or a more "normal" strat).. For you to actually have hordes of paladins/slingers (pretty much th...

Actually if you ask me, MOM IME is more a boon for Single player than MP!! I don't play much MP but just by adding all the possible configuration options, improved interface, bug removal, he just created a totally new game really. But I wouldn't ask him when the final 1.0? version is out, you will j...

Some questions about MOM IME 0.9

1) How the heck do you remove spells queued in the apprentice.

2) When I start MOM IME 0.9 it begins in a small screen, how do I go to full screen mode?

Thanks..

I kind of miss the generic esc = back or cancel from the original MOM.

Took me a while to figure out how to exit the scroll message. :)

Interesting enough, missile weapons cannot be defended against by your defense stat.

It is more a function of shields (their parry value). Also in dom3, it is very very common for units to miss what they are shooting for...

I've being playing it some and reading the manual (300 pages worth!!)... It is really a deep game, the mechanics are quite interesting. Combatwise while there are popular SC or "supercombantants" strategies, which you equip a commander unit with all kinds of items, buff them up with spells...

Minimum requires for master of magic type game.

There are a lot of games that claim to be master of magic spiritual successors, but to me for a game to meet this claim it has to have the following * Difference races with difference recruit-able units. - Easily met by Age of Wonders, Dominions series, Heroes of might and magic, warlord etc. In fac...

Dominions 3

Anyone playing or played Dominions 1-3? In theory it seems to be the successor of master of magic. * Tons of magic spells and ability to forge magic items (default only). You research by schools (conjuration, evocation etc). Each level e.g finish researching conjuration 1 will unlock several spells ...

I played Age of wonders and Age of wonders 2 . Lacks some of the "magic" of Master of magic. But it is closer to MOM than Dominions 1-3, because it has tactical combat. AOW 2 is very close to MOM with you playing Wizard kings, fighting for the wizard's throne. But it is a bit flat. E.g the...

I personally would not talk about 11 book strategies and use it to judge whether the color is weak or not, even though to some extent you can tell. 11 book strategies hinge on finding *one* suitable spell and exploiting it to the fullest. Is chaos weak? A better test is this. Say you were forced to ...

Okay.

No deadlines is great and all , but i think most people won't do stuff unless they have a deadline, but maybe Implode is an exception.

I'm more than happy with MOM graphics, the game's greatness has nothing to do with its graphics. People who wish for better graphics are *totally* missing the point. I must admit, I don't just tolerate MOM graphics but I still find them charming... i predict that if this project is actually complete...
