Movement overhaul IMPLEMENTED

Post by Endru1241 » Fri Nov 29, 2019 5:52 pm

Right now I'm working on implementing frozen water tileset.
It's water with ice floes on the surface visually. In flavor it's supposed to represent prartially/periodically frozen water, so on average both lighter units and ships can meet ve through it.
It will have infantry moving with 50-67% effectiveness, and mounted with not more than 25%.
Ships would have similar movement penalty as infantry.
No wagon or siege machines. Elephants wouldn't be able to move too.
Original topic: Request for frozen river

While I have to change movement definition for pretty much all units, why not implement other movement bonuses/penalties.

For now:
1.Cavalry movement in forests 75-87% (-1), apart from elephants - I don't see how forests could stop them.
2.Movement on roads 116-150% (+1 most units, chariots gets +2 - it can be lowered later when they'll have bonus movement tech).
3.Ships movement in deep water (open sea) 134-167% (+2).

Ideas, comments?

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

Only on maps, where map creator put deep water tiles, the same goes for roads.
