Not a full return to develop the ideas, but yes, some ideas.

Post by GeneralWadaling »

Today I'd like to talk about technologies.
  • Tactical Arsenal
    Tier 2 technology that is necessary for a real battle. With this technology you are able to gain access to most class of units, especially the main battle elements.
  • Great War Arsenal
    Tier 3 technology. Gains access to more powerful units (larger war engines!) and their upgrades, and also some valuable strategic assets.
  • Secret Weapons
    Tier 4 technology which will unlock end game units and technologies - the most powerful weapons of your faction.
  • Steam Compression Rifle
    A new generation of rifles that propells rounds using pressurised steam instead of igniting gunpowder.
  • Prefabricated Construction Packs
    This allows basic infantries and sappers construct buildings (or repair vehicles) a bit faster - less time is needed to assemble the parts of the buildings.
  • Universal Exoskeleton Suit
    Modified designs of Exoskeleton Suits that are easier to be used by general infantries, giving extra protection against enemy fire (and probably mobility). Though won't tough as the more tactical designs.
  • Radio Channel
    Establishing radio link with your allies for sharing intel.
  • Tactical Radio
    By using radio communications you are able to deploy field commanders that can coordinate your troops.
  • Composite-Tipped Gun Rounds
    Improving the ammunitions used by anti armour guns by using a tip made of advanced composites.
  • Productivity Reallocation
    Allows factories or TCs to build supply convoys that are able to transfer their productivity to another production facility for rush production.
  • Heavy Duty Support Structure
    Improved supporting structures are necessary for enormous constructions like heavy combat vehicles and fortresses.
  • Supermaterials
    Materials exhibiting excellent properites can be harnessed as invaluable military assets - especially needed for constructing epic machines of war.
  • Electrification
    Though not a very mature technology, electricity can be used for tactical purposes. Let the Joules flow!
  • Steam Jet Engine
    How to make aircraft faster than driven by propellers? BY ERUPTING LOADS OF STEAM!
  • Petroleum Utilisations
    Expensive fuels, but more efficient than burning coals. With stronger fuels, this can bring more possibilities to battlefields - more powerful engines and even flamethrowers.
  • Artillery Engines
    What? You say the artillery is too slow to move around? Just install a steam engine and the problem will be (partially) solved!
.... probably too much ideas here :|

BTW, with terrain movement speed modifications we can probably make units that only runs on railways?
Such as armoured train and railway artillery.

That sounds interesting, though you dont seem to mention factions, would all techs be for all factions?

Yes, and you can make units build terrain too I believe.

Right now I am only proposing universla techs (yeah, for all factions).
I'm also thinking whether I can put some of the technologies as faction exclusives (excluding unit upgrades), like, advanced aerodynamics for Victorian Empire that I design them as airmobile warfare experts.
Of course the Mediterranean Alliance will have a much different tech tree, since their units are basically mass-upgraded with ‘subfaction’ techs (except their main Foreign Legion branch which still follows the universal tech tree).

Id say faction unique techs sound like a good idea. You did propose a ton of universal techs, to be fair. Tho most of them seem to unlock more units. Maybe faction unique techs could give some more stats boosts to unit types that are given factions strong suit, to enchance faction properties?

  • Real world reference: United Kingdom
Mediterranean Alliance - French

Slavic Union

I'm getting quite busy again for the upcoming months which I cannot really spare more time and efforts, help might needed for some detail refining and game sprite arts to get this game really having a clear and complete idea and it can work.

I have an idea for a new faction, the Scandinavian union. They are sort of like more modern Vikings. Their technology relies on being able to cause large amounts of damage in quick raids, and destroying and plundering is their specalty.

That is indeed a nice idea. I almost have forgotten the Nordic people... (My bad)
If you say Nordic people, this would so be a good faction to be given with naval superiority, or amphibious warfare advantage.
And for the styles for architecture and units, it's also very clear - VIKINGS!

I can combine them into a squad unit sprite. And those can act as templates for later models too.

I have a new faction idea...we can add vengols/vengolians of Vengolia.It is conceptualized from Mongolia,,,
•Their solders will be like,um,,,Barbaric I guess???they will be the most undeveloped factions but as furious and brave as the Great Sultanate...
•They will use their army in great numbers,,,
•Using the "Weapons From The Old Times",,, but after researching Tiers,,,they are in touch of steam powers
•They will have weak but cheapest production
•Their army can have great stealth powers

Also many ideas can be added

Nomadic mechanised vehicles roaming over the steppe, probably mostly competing with each other.
But there will continue to be unions of the Steppe, whether loosely or cohesive, as confederations, khanates, khaganates.
Perhaps a new reunion, adopting imperial tradition from its predecessors, subjects, and neighbours, but as firepower continues to exceed maneuverability and lessens the gap between untrained and trained, increase of state power magnifies manpower/otherwise shortfall vs principal opponents, and steam industry grows more significant, early adoption can only delay the Khaganate's fall, as it has its Dzungar predecessor. Besides, a large proportion of erstwhile subjects have settled in pursuit of new opportunities.

Unrelated Note: Great Sultanate can be extended to other Islamic Gunpowder Empires.

I assume Steampunk is when Water Vapour Pressure ×100.
