Game options and design

Post by Tankhead » Fri Aug 10, 2018 3:56 am

I think too many people are too focus on new units instead of outside of the gameplay so I guess ill list out a few things that might help the game growth
1. Remove the black around the weapon ( app logo )
2. Add in more music
3. Add In more slot colors ( another topic covering details )
4. Consider my Upgrade organization topic
5. A slow button ( useful for watching AI after you fast forward and you wanna go back to normal speed again also look at the topic for this )
6. Change the "gems" in game. Should change the style of that considering AOS have gems and this is a fantasy game. So maybe diamonds, crystals, magic orbs
7. Menu Layout should have a fantasy look to it( Making lettering different, background )
I'm sure imma have to make separate topics for these but I feel ideas should be pointed in other areas too.

The music ideas not bad what did you have in mind? Each race having its own style of music in the gameplay?

You do have a point about that, I would suggest not making a topic for each, let's have it here.

I agree that people have been suggesting lots of unit ideas (including me for a time), many of which will probably not be added to simply because development of such will take ages, and in the case of some, won't add to the game. Rather, stuff like a better map editor would be great, because the current visuals have very small letters (though the wording and instructions are top notch, made it easier to learn once I stopped focusing on the tiny words) and sometimes when I accidentally place a tile over a tile, I can't delete the bottom one.

I was just thinking adding in more soundtracks
But a soundtrack theme for every race isn't a bad idea either

It doesn't usually trigger, especially when you leave the map and come back on. The triggers don't seem to work anymore.

I'm guessing give you the title of the song or something with the attachments when I find something?

Undead orcs dwarves - perfect
Scalefolk and elves - not sure
Scalefolk imo too short while elves sounds something from the future

Dwarves builds up kills me, like a sick beat about to drop then NOPE it just resets( not disapproving )

Here's another one that might work.

Could be scaledfolks or new human sound track.

Well, what 's your opinion on these ones I found? If you want I can look up a new one for humans and we can keep the old one for both neutrals.

these should be in separate topics, but here are my 5 cents
1. Remove the black around the weapon ( app logo )
- not sure i understand - please open topic and make the modification on image so we understand - and we will see. thanks!
2. Add in more music
- ok :)
3. Add In more slot colors ( another topic covering details )
- there is a topic already, and need vote too.
4. Consider my Upgrade organization topic
- idk which topic u refer, but we shoud discuss there.
5. A slow button ( useful for watching AI after you fast forward and you wanna go back to normal speed again also look at the topic for this )
- i think it is not so necessary in normal games - but if has topic than discuss there.
6. Change the "gems" in game. Should change the style of that considering AOS have gems and this is a fantasy game. So maybe diamonds, crystals, magic orbs
- i think gems are fine here, but naturally it is not so hard to change, open topic suggest image and name, and ask to put into need-vote.
7. Menu Layout should have a fantasy look to it( Making lettering different, background )
- good idea, please open topic and specify your idea with images, fonts - thanks!

The music isn't in right topic? Hmm.
Btw out of all the sound tracks I found (orcs, undead should be fine.) Which do you think can be given to whom?
Humans-maybe
Dwarves- to short
Elves-too peaceful
Scaledfolk-still needs one to be chosen.

Alright here's the choices pick which ones you want for which race so we can have it ready 11 to 12 sound tracks, we need 5-6.

You gotta make them .ogg files and make them very small. Use Audacity.
