Units in walls

Post by Zolaes » Sat Sep 24, 2022 12:43 am

I saw some pictures, movies and videos about medieval things, like archers atop of walls but in this game archers can only go behind walls plus hangonners, musketeers and those gunpowder ashigarus cab shoot through walls. So maybe we can walls like tower just walls can't attack enemies unless there are units inside.

The issue with that is that your units would be able to freely move through walls, since there's no way currently that I know of for making them only enter-able or exit-able from one side. The idea is great though, just can't see how that could work currently. Maybe with some new spec in the future it might become possible.
Green is the correct color, other colors are "less correct".

Well, there is currently a possiblity for making the walls not passable by neither units not projectiles (even abilities) even if they are in range. (Eg: cave walls from AoF)
But the reason it is not used for walls is that, it cannot be applied to walls to restrict only certain projectiles but, it will block everything( projectiles, abilities, and movement).
Eg: Logically speaking, archers can do a curve shot or descending shot over walls so we could consider arrows passing through(*over) walls but shots fired by gun wouldn't. So, if we consider making the walls not passable by projectiles, it will not only block bullet shots but arrows too.
So this possibility is not practical enough here unless it is made to block attacks from specific units.

How does it work? Does it apply aura to adjacent units that projectiles cant target them or something?

It uses spec unit action:

Code: Select all

IS_INFINITE_TALL,             // (use only with DEV approval!) units that should not be shot over, "spell" over, fly over - so anything behind is protected (like a wall in a room)
