Update news on CTGW patch and more

Post by lordzimoa » Wed Oct 28, 2015 8:43 am

Hi guys,

Just a quick update we are working on the final bits of the patch that combines all recent hotfixes and some more reported bug fixing. The patch contains no balancing or feature updates

But instead we will, in the very near future, release and open up all scripted game files, AI included, that means that there will be basically no more limits what modders can do with the game, if they take the time diving into the Lua scripting.

You can make any hex game, or mod you want, the only limitation will be your modding time and fantasy...

More news soon.


Cheers,

Tim

Great news, but does this include the ability to change the map files? I would at least like to know how you do it, even if it isn't as simple as a map editor. The ability to change the map through Lua would also be nice. I'm thinking building and destroying railroads and canals.

Hi guys,

Warning, this is a test Beta patch, only apply it if you are confident and willing to test and know what to you are doing!



Sorry it took so long but I think I've got them all fixed now.

Please unpack attached zip file in your CTGW installation directory (and replace existing files), and let me know of your results.

This package also contains all scripts in text form (including AI) so modding (and fixing things) should be much simpler now. I hope it helps you guys.

Cheers!

No problem at all, sorry to keep you waiting with the answer. It is difficult thing tho, the editor in it's current state is -let's call it- "less than stellar" and while original designer was brave enough to use it, it would require some additional work to be comfortably usable. We will see what can be done tho.

Another thing concerning future updates:

up to now all the updates were released as executables which is probably fine for the majority of the players but is a headache for people who have spent months modding all the different scripts. As there is no way of telling beforehand which scripts will be changed in what way, having to look through all the scripts after the update process is a rather tedious experience.

So what I'm asking is that besides that standard self-running executable could you please allow for a sperate download archive for us modders containing only the scripts which got updated?

That would be very helpful. :)

Thanks for the info. As far as my end of things go, a way to edit the "original hex owner" parameter would be sufficient. If not with a map editor, then perhaps the same thing could be done with an event script?
