News Comments > Age of Wonders III Mod Support Plans

Unless you have unlimited resources and insane processing power, there is never going to be a high level AI in any 4x type game that doesn't cheat.

ALL high level AI in most 4x games get bonuses to production, gold etc.

Unless you have discovered the magical means to give an AI an organically adaptive brain, that's what you'll always have.

That said, the AI in AoW 3 is not that bad. It is actually pretty decent. Also...are you forgetting that there is such a thing as Greater Disjunction? Maybe the AI is using that...

Some of the early combat footage looks really bad. Hoped they went with turn-based. What I have seen looked really messy and boring. The rest of the game? Amazing.

No they did not go with turn based. Was Syndicate in any way turn based? Because that is what this is a spiritual successor of.

I replayed the first (HR) one 3 times ;p So I am kinda hyped for this.. just hoping it will still give us option for a complete non-lethal playthrough.

I play games to kill and hurt things. What is this 'non-lethal' method you speak of?

I find myself not interested in this anymore.

I was really hoping that they would have hit it out of the park with this game but it just doesn't seem like they ever will.

How about taking the kickstarter money and work on Squadron 42 ONLY. Then relase this (just a Wing Commander clone - no FPS, multiplayer or stuff), and with the money that they can make if Squadron 42 is great and successful, make the MMO with FPS and stuff. How about that? Finish SQ42, release it to prove what you really can pull off and by this, win over new investors. No hangar, no dogfight module, a complete single player SQ42. And then move on to MMO, IF SQ42 can win over the gamers.

Right now, it's a Flagship situation: release a single player game telling everybody it's actually an MMO with bells and whistles. People don't want to be Flagshipped again. At least they shouldn't want to be.

I strongly suspect that Squadron 42 was never what Roberts wanted to work on in the first place. He could have made that, released it, and then continued to look at expanding the other aspects of the franchise. He's instead fixed on this MMO idea that no one really asked for.

I wish Steam themselves would pursue legal action, on behalf of their customers, when these shenanigans are brought to light. No pun intended. Perhaps threat of a lawsuit would keep these types of scams off their service.

Right. So sue people who are probably already broke (likely why they are scamming in the first place) so then you are stuck with legal fees and nothing to show for it.

What would be more effective is to blacklist developers based on shady practices including refusing to Greenlight any other games from them if they are provably dishonest.

Expecting Valve to play each game to completion or whatever before allowing it is nutty.

You constantly bash Bethesda for its storywriting but I really enjoy their games and think that the worlds they create are really rich and rewarding. You get far too caught up in whether they're good RPGs rather than whether they're good games.

I tend to agree here somewhat. If a game is fun overall, I really don't care that I didn't get an option to strip all the skin off my hand so I can fit it through a small pipe to pull a lever that lets me open a door, thus avoiding fighting 3 guards, rendering my Flesh Regrowth skill less awesome because there was no skill check for it.

That's the case with Bethesda games for me. They're fun to mess around in and fun to explore. Very few people REALLY care that a voiced protagonist may equal one or two less dialogue choices.

Thanks for all the feedback. Sound like a waste of money, even at $5 or so.

I enjoyed it. At $5 it would be well worth it IMO. Just don't go in to it thinking it's a Thief game.

Well obviously no one would expect that based on its name right?

Kobalt wrote on Jul 31, 2015, 17:49:
Never played it, but if reports of galciv 3 being basically galciv 2 are true I have to disagree. I tried es few times but got bored before long. Maybe it's the fact that you have pre designated routes instead of being able to go anywhere. Felt like despite it being space there was less freedom then most 4x games I've played. Also the races in galciv at least have some personality. Too many factions in es are just humans.

The races in Galciv 3 have boring, cookie-cutter 'personalities'. ES had a race of giant amoebas, ravenous insects, warlike avians, sentient rocks, a race of science-obsessed Sectoids(Xcom), a nature-loving AI race and another AI race which is preparing for the eventual return of their lost makers. That's 7 non-human races. All with unique and interesting lore. There are 5 'human' factions...one of which is a narcissistic set of clones of the same person. No law says you have to include human factions in your games.

Also, free-travel in any direction(warp drive) is an unlocked tech.

We're still trying to get them to make the Endless Legend AI better. They at least seem to be listening on that front.

AI is not their strong suit. On the other hand, I expect that Endless Space 2, like it's predecessor, will not be nearly as boring and meh as GalCiv 3.

To elaborate, AI seems to be what they think about LAST. They like to build asymetrical races with unique traits, but that's an AI nightmare in reality.

I decent, COOP is far more important than single player alone.

Lmao, this is id. It's not like they are a bastion of single player greatness. I'll just go ahead and puke now before someone tries to pretend id is a great story teller. Puke Hahaha_no

Decent? Dissent?

i think he's referring to Descent, a much better SP game than anyone from ID has ever put together
