again a bigger progress with blue

- unit can attack, by melee, and ranged (projectiles are not rotated yet though)
- damaged units show HP change, and they can die properly

I may sound foolish but can anyone explain me what is the "Unity Version" and why is it better?

i was palying with the idea of making the game in Unity engine, advantages can be
- multliple platform ability (iOS, Windows and so on)
- better controls (zoom, pan, button clicks and so on features)
- less crash (many is because of the current image rendering library)
- hopefully faster loadup, and faster AI turn
- better multiplayer management
- better online multiplayer (when u see other player's move)
- rotate phone option
- possibility to 3D things in game (eg. particles, like smoke effects - anything)
There is no place for false kings here, only those who proves themselves to b the true kings of legend, or serves under me

For I watch over this world looking for those worthy to become kings, and on the way get rid of the fakes and rule over the fools

i am getting very angry to this unity thing...
- there is no ANY built in dialog handling, nothing, ew need to build it manually - or get one ready but all have weakensses... at last i u sed "ModalUI"
- there is not ANY mouse even consuming handling - wtf? i need to handle manually a click on all objects beneath not to execute the event (so i can not consume on top level item) ... wtf??

also progress:
- Started UI interaction eg. delete unit, the confirmation dialog (not yet skinned) is in - but clicking problems...

new:
- First draft version of SINGLEPLAYER_MENU the campaign list menus (like hard/easy campaigns and such, in multilevel hierarchy option)

also here is the first draft version of the menu hierarchy,
WARNING it is a DRAFT a pre-pre-pre-beta, only a CONCEPT like gameling. not so working (only working that is listed in first post)
also ifu run a map it loads for about 30 seconds to me (all slowness is inherited from current AOS version - will be optimized later)

here: https://www.androidutils.com/apk/au.apk


please feedback about the concept of the
- SINGLEPLAYER_MENU
- CAMPAIGN LIST
- MAP LIST

Feedback about loaded map - it looks great.
Everything seems so clear.

Except unit sprites - those would probably need 64bit rework to even go close.

cool!

64 bit rework? what do u mean?
the end result should be like AOS currently in Android version - that is also 32px.

I mean, that with unity everything aside from units seems clearer, so units look really worse in comparison.
Probably some graphic enhance algorithms work better for terrain.

would be easier to me to use 64 px in all versions (now i hve to deal with different sises in unity)
if u feel there is a chance for us to make evrything 64 that would be awesome!

eg. is there any mass automatic upscaler?

new pending problems:
# HTML displaying library: i need one that works for all platforms (android/iOS/Windows), the unit help and map intro texts are all htmls - it can
be a paid library, i just need one :)
(solved)

# Nice unit filtering: the units are now little ugly as they are not scaled with a good filter - should be figured out how to but without losing the possibility of teamcolor changing!

- fog of war about 70% (explored is nicer than android as runtime moving but the thick fog is same as on android - only shown after movement)
- unit stats button is working, the whole html templating engine was ported to c# with days of work :/

Wait, does that mean that for explored tiles every tile the unit goes through shows the full vision range around it?

i mean the "circle" moves together with the unit sprite, so moves with unit (not like now on android where it shows on end of movement only.)

Hm, then I have some concerns about it:
  • If you see an enemy unit along the way just for a brief moment, how will that information be kept visible when the unit reaches its destination?
  • Do units move slower for the player to actually see and understand what they're seeing along the way? And if so, won't that increase the overall time it takes to play a turn?

actually units are not there, only terrain, but if they would be (that i might make sometime) than you see them for a second and you dont see them again when your units moves towards.
Do units move slower for the player to actually see and understand what they're seeing along the way? And if so, won't that increase the overall time it takes to play a turn?
no they will not move slower, it is not a goal so player see terrain "in detail" along the way - you suggest that?
