[Abandoned] - CONQUERSHIP (1v1 map)

Postby lostatlimbo on Tue Nov 29, 2011 4:55 pm

Version 9
Per ian canton's suggestion, I've set the cell bonus to +1 per 10 cells over 30 (legend says sea cells, will change that with next update)
I changed the grids to 0-9
I've also clarified some things in the legend (no region bonus, ship cells cannot assault each other)

Previous update:
Version 8
Each section of the Destroyer and Submarine on each side one-way assaults the connected torpedo.
Each section of the Aircraft carriers one-way assaults the connected jet fighter.
Torpedoes and Jet Fighters bombard and are bombarded by any ship on the opposite side of the map.
Each section of the Battleship and Patrol Boat bombard the sea cells marked by arrows.
Sea Mines, Torpedoes and Jet Fighters are all impassable by sea. The trails connecting the latter to their ships are normal sea cells. This essentially functions like train connections do on various maps by showing a connection without interfering with the territory.
Toyed with the table background and toned it down considerably.
I lowered the starting # of troops to 10 and the torpedo/jets to 5 to help minimize first-turn advantage.

Oh, sorry, I didn't mean it like that. Just thinking about how long ago we started this (and how much longer we're going to be in here and the Workshop, lol). I'm just totally psyched to see a gameplay sketch of mine see the light of day! :)

pretty cool, but you can't divide the xml rules for only two player games and multiplayer games with the current xml. You'd have to make two maps each with its own xml and restrict the amount of players on the two person game... for that I think you need special permission from lack or nobodies or both. so you might want to reconsider and find a way to make it a map that works for any amount of players

Sully came up with a workaround to make this happen. I'll let him explain it as his knowledge of the XML is far superior to mine.

Sully - if you want to type up a brief summary of the XML details, I will add it to the OP to clear up any confusion.

XML Breakdown

Here's how it will all work out. The 'red pegs' and headquarters will be coded as starting positions as follows (note: these territories are coded as neutrals):
Code: Select all
<positions>
     <position>
          <territory>1 Red Peg</territory>
          <territory>1 Headquarters</territory>
     </position>
     <position>
          <territory>2 Red Peg</territory>
          <territory>2 Headquarters</territory>
     </position>

As described in the legend, the 2-player bonuses are connected to the red pegs, like so:
Code: Select all
<continent>
     <name>5 left sea cells [sub]</name>
     <bonus>0</bonus>
     <components>
          <territory>A1</territory>
          <territory>A2</territory>
          ...
          <territory>J9</territory>
          <territory>J10</territory>
     </components>
     <required>5</required>
</continent>
<continent>
     <name>5 left sea cells</name>
     <bonus>2</bonus>
     <components>
          <territory>1 Red Peg</territory>
          <continent>5 left sea cells [sub]</continent>
     </components>
     <overrides>
          <override>5 left sea cells [sub]</override>
     </overrides>
</continent>

Alright, now the next issue: the competing bonuses. In a 2-player game, I'm not supposed to be able to get the bonuses in a 3-8 player game, and vice versa. As for the 2-player bonuses, they are connected to the red pegs, which one wouldn't be able to get in a 3-8 player game, due to the way the starting positions are coded. As for the flip side of that:
Code: Select all
<continent>
     <name>Headquarters</name>
     <bonus>0</bonus>
     <components>
          <territory>1 Headquarters</territory>
          <territory>2 Headquarters</territory>
     </components>
     <required>1</required>
</continent>

The continent above would then be coded to override every 3-8 player continent. Since the Headquarters can't be assaulted, one can't lose it in a 2-player game for the 3-8 player bonuses to be activated. And in 3-8 player games, no one would be able to get a Headquarters. Well, now we run into another issue - if the Headquarters can't be assaulted, then how will a 2-player game end? Losing conditions allows us to work around this:
Code: Select all
<requirement>
     <name>at least one cell</name>
     <components>
          <territory>A1</territory>
          <territory>A2</territory>
          ...
          <territory>J10</territory>
          <territory>Q1</territory>
          ...
          <territory>Z9</territory>
          <territory>Z10</territory>
     </components>
     <required>1</required>
</requirement>

The requirement is set so that you must hold at least one sea or ship cell (basically any other territory than a Headquarters or Red Peg) to stay in the game. The losing condition also does not interfere with 3-8 player games, since no one will be holding anything but sea or ship cells.

And that's how we're able to do this :)

Hm, it might work. I'll have to take a closer look later on...

This sounds pretty cool. I like the idea, and if the XML can work, boons.

What Sully said is possible. Just a question, reading your explanation in a 3-8 players game no one will have a HQ and nobody will be able to attack it, right?

Give every man your ear, but few thy voice. Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.

You are correct. The HQ cannot be assaulted, nor will anyone in a 3-8 player game start with one. The Red Pegs can be bombarded by the nukes/bombs, but not assaulted. I would be surprised if the bombs ever come into play in a 3-8 player game. Though, I suppose I could code the Red Pegs as neutral 1's for nice, safe carding spots, but it would cost the 10 neutrals on the bomb.

Who's ready for Conquer Club's first 1v1 map? \:D/
