Dungkeep
Working on a Dungeon Keeper like game, similar to Dungeon Keeper 1. I like overall theme and game design when compared to Dungeon Keeper 2.

In anycase, I'd like to hear what you would want in that game? I'd imagine things like casino would be your choice, allowing you to effectively recover your income. Perhaps tall and wide playstyles.

I just want to know that's all.

How will firaxis make civ 7 worse than civ 6? You just know the'yll do it, going by how much of a drop-off 6 was from 5.

They gave civ 6 a mobile art style and did other tweaks enough to make it more or less mediocre. How will they fuck it up even more this time?

If firaxis was still competent, they would have built on 5's strengths the way NIS did with disgaea 3/4 but they're not competent.

Now I think about it there's nothing like WC3 custom maps when it comes to strategy
>Massively asymmetrical factions
>Powerful heroes that have only one life allowing for shit like assassination units and heroes having use or even things like sacrificing battles in order to off enemy heroes
>Zany mechanics and different player goals allowing for actually useful diplomacy and highly variable strategies
Symmetrical sandboxes like Starcraft are just utter bore after you experience having to team up with player you were at war for the whole game in order to stop another player controlling small wizard island from summoning hordes of hell in fifteen minutes, and then even if he does it you still can win instead of it being automatic game over if you play your cards right and he gets cocky with his ultra-strong demons!
Fucking hell, I don't want balance, I want creative scenarios where each player has to play their role but none of them are absolutely critical like in that Avatar map you can easily off the Avatar player early on if you have good Mai and Ty Lee player since he has pair of powerful hero-killing heroes but barely any units but all it does is removing a stupidly powerful hero from enemy side, it doesn't win you the war, in the same vein if North Water Tribe manages to off Zhao player's base it still doesn't matter much if Fire Nation managed to off Earth Kingdom in the meantime
All these maps were fucking great and actually engaged strategic skills, where the fuck I am going to find anything that actually allows me to strategize nowadays

Rebuild
rebuild
How many of you homies played Rebuild? The series started out as two flash games before having a 'proper' game released on steam, and they are pretty cool. Basically they're a pretty unique idea for a 'city builder' where you control a small group of survivors, reclaiming blocks of the city from the zombie hordes and fortifying them as you try to rebuild (ha) civilization and survive. Always thought it they were a pretty unique concept since I first played the flash games and I have a lot of love for the series, definitely one of the small gems of the flash era

What does /vst/ think? Which game in the series is the best?

CK2 Game of Thrones
ck2_174_by_amcalmaron_dda8mvw-pre
So I did a thing. I enjoy AGOT for CK2, but all the submods are a mess.
So I merged them myself. It's far from finished (some provinces miss history for specific dates, etc), but it's a start and perfectly playable as opposed to using all these mods separated. The mods in question will be in the next post.

Download here:

Works with the latest CK2 patch, based on the latest versions of each submod.

National borders in Civilization: Was it a good idea?
CivII_01
I understand it's better for roleplaying and aesthetics (because we put national borders on our map), and I understand that the later civs have a more developed diplomacy system, but still.

Borders are a fluid thing, especially frontier cities. It should be that the tiles you can use are the tiles you can defend, which is what Civ 2 does in effect. What do you guys think?

>emphasis on flanking, elevation, using combined tactics, etc to make or break fights, units' stats shouldn't be the most important factor in winning.
>morale and veterancy systems would be neat
>Ironman mode would be good, especially if it's balanced in a what way that losing units won't make you want to savescum.

Stellaris - Unity & Trade, Coop

Going for high trade value as a non megacorp, while your buddy is a megacorp and makes powerful branch offices on your worlds is fun.
What are some other fun coop builds?

I've kinda wanted to go for a high unity build and max out planetary ascensions, it's just a shame managers are megacorp only.
I feel like Administrative Arcologies with +6 managers would've been ideal to spam for that. Since Bureaucrats give stability, and Priests give amenities, both of which you won't need as much of on a high ascension perk capitol world, while the extra trade value from managers would've been nice to couple with a buddy's branch office.

why no one ever talks about the, objectively, best game in the series?
what are some good mods for IV other than from caveman to space and rhye's and fall?

Just discovered this game and its tickling my autism in just the right ways, but I can't seem to find a comprehensive guide for it. I still don't understand what half the shit means and the stuff I find online is either outdated or for the wrong version. I don't want a handholding tutorial but knowing how to use the UI would be nice.

Chris Taylor style RTS's

How is there not a single Chris Taylor style RTS in the catalog?
Why don't any of you needs play Total Annihilation spring or, Supreme commander forged alliance forever? Planetary Annihilation was good in small doses and it really tried to do something different.

What do you anons think about the Indy game Sanctuary that's in the works?

Seriously though spring is free and needs new blood. FAF is like two dollars for the game key on steam.

Rise of the Reds: Epic units
China_SunStorm
After so long (Around SIX years), the C&C Generals mod "Rise of the Reds" is starting to be worked again.
https://www.moddb.com/mods/rise-of-the-reds/news/epic-update-part-1

And they have now announced "Epic Units" for the factions that didn't had an "Epic Unit" (Which were The Blackbear for Russian Federation, and Manticore/Pandora/Valkyrie Battlesuit for the ECA)
For the USA, it will be the already know for long CV-44 Starlifter American Atlas. And for China it will be picture related.

What do you think? Good idea or stupid? And place your bets & ideas to what will be GLA Epic Unit.

How do you like the new campaigns and nations from the latest expansion? I'm in the middle of the Babur campaign and I enjoy it a lot so far. Really dig the atmosphere and Babur is a interesting character.
Beside that I also played the first mission of the Bengalis campaign, but it was just alright. The way the narrator of this campaign speaks also irritates me. I haven't yet touch the Dravidians campaign.

What is the game?
Screenshot_2022-05-12-16-22-40-07_40deb401b9ffe8e1df2f1cc5ba480b12
Alright here's one I can guarantee you guys can't remember, because I know I've forgotten it.

It was a pc game in the mid 90's, programmable and customizable robots that you would put together and then have fight in arena battles.

3 factions? I guess, but there weren't any faction mechanics or restrictions. More aesthetic choices.

>Generic human robot faction
>Organic alien robots
>Heavy industrial, robot wars / battle bots.

No story that I remember. It was just putting together weird robot /cyborg things and then poorly programming them to fight (I was an idiot kid so I had more fun putting them together than trying to work out rotation and joint movement ratios).

So...any ideas?

Best I can think of is Bio....metal...arena...something

>I do remember one piece of promo art which was a black and white drawing of a robot with a massive chainsaw arm. Nothing at all like pic, but best I could come up with.
