i remember that old program but i learned with the board game and that has the queen with a crown and the king with a cross (like the pope) so i think this way makes perfect sense

chess is so fun! i had a match up for school where i beat my opponent before everyone else was done so he wanted another game

i proceeded to bash him in 14 more games before other people started finishing lol and i used a different strategy for 10 of them, the last 4 all i did was exchange my pieces for his same ones since i can control my pieces better lol, it kept ending up with my 2 rooks and queen vs his queen and king

Nope, it's just like a regular chess game. You can only attack pieces of the opposite color.

Also, I know this is a bad setup, but I am saving any serious discussion about it for a further stage of development. Maybe I can provide a legend that shows how the pieces move, who knows? :)

of course thats just from a coding point of view, cause its hard enough already to code

I wouldn't worry about coding if I were you. Besides, do you even know xml? It would just look like this:
Code: Select all
<objective>
   <components>
      <component>Piece1</component>
      <component>Piece2</component>
      ...
      <component>Piece15</component>
   </components>
</objective>

Do that twice and there ya go. Objective complete!

pieces +1

Postby herndawg on Tue Feb 05, 2008 9:23 pm

What if all pieces started nuetral and they are +1 bonus when held, or for every two pieces +1, the first to own all of one color and conquer king of other color wins?

I used play chess in tournaments. Would it be possible to have several different starting positions for a starting setup? You could have The English Opening, Ruy Lopez, Queen's Gambit, Sicilian Defense, Dutch etc. There are enough openings to be able to have a different start for just about every game. Just a thought.

I'd be willing to start it up again. People approved of the idea, but it never got moved to the Foundry (where it would get better discussion), so nobody suggested anything more and it died.

herndawg wrote:What if all pieces started nuetral and they are +1 bonus when held, or for every two pieces +1, the first to own all of one color and conquer king of other color wins?


All pieces are starting neutral, and the objective is to hold all of one color and the opposing king. The piece bonuses can change if they need to, maybe later on I'll start a poll.

That would be cool, but I don't know if that's possible, I'd have to ask an XML expert or a mod or something. I want all the pieces to start off with a large range of mobility (i.e. no rooks stuck in the corner), which is why they're scattered around like this, and not in the starting position. :)

Well, it seems like there's finally some discussion about this map, now that it looks somewhat professional. I took some of your suggestions and redid the graphics, and the latest version of the map is here. Comment and suggest like always. :wink:


I don't think you should get +1 for holding only 1 pawn and i also don't think you should get +1 for each of the same colour held if you hold royalty as this would just mean that royalty would hold the key to the battle, it gets too big a bonus.

If you did this each royalty would have to start with a neutral of 10 or something.

Otherwise great map. :)

Possibly, but then there would be no incentive to capture a pawn. Plus, it provides a good starting point for more armies.

As far as the royalty bonus, I took that away in the sixth draft, which was posted almost two months ago. You didn't look at the most recent image. :wink:

ive been wanting a chess map for a long time and i love it

i do like the idea for different starting positions though b/c the one you have just seems random

well, it might be pretty hard to program, but could it be made so that you can move the chess pieces for "fortification" stage? (this question is for programmers, not the map designers.)

I'm guessing the way chess pieces move (look at the map where the movement of chess pieces is shown...)

Here's a midgame setup I found. Does this look good?

Image

Have +1 for each pawn, +2 for each rook, bishop, or knight, and +3 for each king or queen. They'd start off with different amounts of neutrals.

The kings are guarded and off to the sides, so they will be hard to get to in order to achieve victory.

lord voldemort wrote:yer how are you doing attack routes etc?


Pieces attack anywhere they could move in real life chess. This includes moving onto pieces of the opposite color. Troops on an empty square can move up, down, left, or right. In this particular case, I think pawns should always move to the space in front of them, because in real life chess, pawns like the ones at b4 and b5 couldn't move. Or maybe we should keep it like that? A sort of Alcatraz-like thing. That might be cool. :)
