Re: AI Difficulty & Game Difficulty & what they mean

I think the confusion arises from the apparent contradiction of the two statements in the manual: "AI Player Difficulty... Indicates how... aggressive your opponents will be", and "Game Difficulty... affects how aggressive the AI players will be..." (my italics), when it also says that Game Difficul...

Done (albeit not 'officially')! See my thread: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 21&t=72515

I'm still tweaking them, but would very much like some feedback before posting next version.

Ah... well, I wouldn't know how to do that. As for why -- cuz I like consistency! 8)

Re: Something Wrong with Cheat Codes

What actually happens is the game reads them in the order they were programmed. For some scenarios it is not necessarily DV/MV/Loss/none/none [snip] What happened in your scenario was the designer had either had multiple ways to get one type of victory or simply couldn't be bothered putting them in...

Something Wrong with Cheat Codes

Why would I get the wrong result when using cheat codes? I'm trying to test my re-written .pzbrf files, but on a couple of scenarios I get the wrong result when I use "endscn #". E.g., I get a Victory when it should be a Loss (2); Triumph when it should be a Victory (1). I suspect it's something I d...

Re: Briefing 'Tone' and Errata

I would now like to offer my re-writes for "Soviet Corps" briefings. Other than my issue(s) with the tone and English errors, I have tried to: 1) Identify the 'speaker' while: maintaining a consistent 'personality'; maintaining 'professionalism'; reacting 'reasonably'; 2) Identify the situation with...

Re: Briefing 'Tone' and Errata

It is a trivial thing, but I do agree with the OP. In the base campaign, I kicked the allies out of Italy, then threw Operation Overlord back into the Atlantic, forcing Britain and the US to sue for peace. I'm the greatest general ever! Oh, in my next mission, my superior threatened to shoot me in ...

Re: Briefing 'Tone' and Errata

I just see it differently...I don't think you're getting chewed out for doing better than expected. During the briefings, you're being told that even though you did a great job, you better not fail in this next assignment. The fate of the entire Soviet nation was at stake and failure was not an opt...

Re: Briefing 'Tone' and Errata

My, my, aren't we sensitive... Is this a part of the new political correctness? Historically accurate, for example, gen. Patton used very "direct" language when addressing his subordinates. I guess great leaders like Patton could not survive, let alone succeed in the brave new world we live in now....

Re: Briefing 'Tone' and Errata

This seems like a petty issue. The briefings are just to add flavor, and they do not have a big impact on gameplay. I think you're taking this too seriously! Also, I don't think an "inferior" officer is berating you in the briefings...it's a "superior" officer. That's how the military works -- high...

Re: Briefing 'Tone' and Errata

Since I cannot add more than three attachments to a single post, I am attaching v2.1 here.

Next step, I will combine v1.1 & v2.1 into one doc, and edit once more for errors, etc. (v3).

EDIT: 11/06/16. v3 attached!

For those without the time (or inclination) to d/l & read the docs, I am going to post a couple of examples of the changes I'm proposing. Explanations or reasoning can be found in the docs' Comments.

Just to let everyone know, I am reading everything & appreciate all the feedback. I'm not responding directly as yet because I believe I've already made most of my points (in the docs' comments), so I'm waiting to see if there's some kind of general (sorry!) consensus.

Although this discussion was briefly (sorry!) raised in the SC Closed Beta forum, and I posted this topic not long ago originally in the USC Closed forum, I wish to re-post, as I was late there, and, now that the latter is released, I can try to reach more readers. I know I'm not quite alone in havi...
