Ranked map pool has been fucking unbearable since they put voting in-game. There's literally too many shit maps to ban them all. We have a bunch of custom game lobby players who have never and will never touch the ranked queue deciding what we're fucking playing and it's killing the stupid game for me, this game has been multiplayer perfection for years at this point and they're throwing that away on something they were already getting fucking right in the first place.

I swear to god if I ever see Black Forest in a ranked queue for singleplayer ever again I'm deleting this shit off my harddrive. Fuck.

Princes' Fortune
mappos2
is a grand STRATEGY GAME that I have been developing, it's not "off-topic", even if it isn't complete.
Set in pseudo-Europe and inspired by Imperator, it seeks not to be another map painter but an empire manager, with a focus on:
>resource management (you need wood to build ships, grain to feed pops, wool to prevent them from freezing, etc)
>pop management (who all have their wealth)
>character management
>closed economy with prepaid-model
>anti-omniscience (limited information, e.g. you don't know many troops other countries have)
>faction management (all characters belong to a faction, and everything you do impact the faction's loyalty, if you go to war against the faction's beloved country, they might revolt against you)
>army management (army depletes as you advance because you have to leave troops behind to garrison)
>making the world evolve (you turn forests into farmlands, build bridges over rivers, convert villages to cities)

Diplomacy update in 5 days lads

>A full-featured diplomacy system. The AI takes a "realpolitik" approach, and the system explains in detail why the AI likes or dislikes a diplomatic action. So no AI opponents that hate or love you for no clear reason. Your diplomatic actions also affect your reputation in the world as a whole.

>I'm especially pleased with the ultimatum system, where you can send an interaction saying "do this or else I'll do this other thing". This can be "pay me tribute or I declare war" but also more out there things like "upgrade our non-aggression pact pact to a defensive pact or I'll cancel our trade treaty".

>You can now upgrade your towns and cities with shipyards, factories, police stations, pleasure palaces, labs, and more. Balance your expenditures between building up your empire and conquering more of it.

>There are new systems for logistics and city unrest, as well as a fully rewritten espionage system, a revamped technology tree, and a much prettier new map.

>Finally, there are now special eras in conquest that change things up by having special rules. Like an Age of Piety that reduces unrest and gives the players a bunch of holy sites to fight over. Or an Age of Exploration that lets the players send out expeditions to find knowledge and valuables.

Genesis Rising Thread
file
This game is super neat and I want to make a thread about it, problem is it is super unstable according to the reviews. I think it'd be cool to get it functioning, or at least use this as a general thread to discuss individual fixes. For example, if you start the game and the screen is cut off (in my case I could only see the upper left part), go to the .exe, select properties, and go to the compatibility tab, then to the DPI settings, and check 'Override High DPI'. Should fix it.

Currently, I can start the first mission fine, but all of my ships have a black void where the textures should go. Any fixes for that one?

1 tile = 1 tile
8tiles=8tiles
Why are hexfags so fucking retarded they cannot see the forest for the trees?

See picrel for why why the "diagonal movement problem" hexfags try to ascribe to squares doesn't actually exist - because you are moving in tiles, not actual distance! It doesn't matter that you have moved 1.41 feet diagonally, when you would have moved only 1 foot orthgonaly, becasue YOU ARE NOT MOVING IN REAL DISTANCE, YOU ARE MOVING IN TILES.
See picrel, it takes the exact same amount of tiles to move from one corner to the next diagonally, that it takes to move from one corner to the next orthogonally.
Yes the real distance is larger, but that does not matter, since the game is structured in tiles, not real distance!

Hexxfagging is unirinically Reddit-style thinking - believing you are some sort of expert and can overturn years of time-tested methods because you have learned some arbitrary fun fact (in this case that distance from one center of a square to the center of diagonal square is larger than the distance to the center of a orthogonal square).

TL;DR: 1 tile = 1 tile, always

BattleTech Advanced: 3062
bta3062
A thread for discussing the best mod for HBS BattleTech.

Pros:
-Clans, clan tech and Elementals
-Vastly improved mechlab
-Huge library of new mechs
-Multiple lances and artillery

Cons
-Still coded in Garbage and prone to random crashes
-Probability fuckery including coded 'streak breakers' to stop you getting too lucky
-Maps aren't 'procedurally generated' like the kickstarter promised
-Stupid deployment system will often dump your lances into insanely shitty starting locations that no commander in their right mind would agree with
-No selection of deployment zones, despite having a dropship that could theoretically put you just about anywhere on the map
-Enemies deploy with 8 evasion so even on the rare occasions the dropship puts you somewhere good, you're probably not going to be able to capitalize on it
-Social justice abounds- all the above problems were never addressed but the troon lead programmer made sure that 'valid pronouns' were available and that icky straight white males go to the back of the queue
-One of the mod devs, 'Blue Wind', is also a troon who has written the cringiest mary sue fanfic of himself into the game

Overall not the game BattleTech deserves but BTA3062 makes it the best it can be. Anyone else here a player?

>A hero with a pre-patched mana drain (can't share mana with your own units) has no valid targets to cast it on

>Adds a lot of great units with synergies and an amazing hero and an upgrade that changes the way you use a unit to the Orc race
>No Orc expansion campaign

>The only real campaign in the expansion is the last one
>Has the blandest level design

battle brothers
Just started this game. Any tips? Played for around an hour and immediately noticed that ranged has a pitiful hit chance, yet there's nothing online I can find to confirm that they're outright bad so I'm assuming there's a specific way you're meant to use them.

Necropolis-in
In a game, where you face literal demons and devils, necromancers are, for some reason, considered to be the evilest faction in that universe. WHY? What are they doing that's actually worse than Eeofol's works to deserve such a reputation?
