Re: What would you make of Liberia?

Maybe. Like, have a choice of techs at the town center each time you age up, with each one providing a building that auto-spawns either an American or a Kru Native once every X seconds (depending on which tech you chose), with Americans generally taking longer to spawn, but being more powerful. The ...

Re: What would you make of Liberia?

Just gave me a thought.  Liberia is in a sort of unique position as far as this game's mechanics go. It's a sort of "Half-Anglo, Half-African" society. This could be exploited, especially since it goes along with the themes of both cultures (Anglo factions and African rule-breaking.) I saw the desig...

What would you make of Liberia?

This is intended as a brainstorm activity for fans of the mod. Don't take it too seriously.

How would you design Liberia?

Re: Plague Catapults

Tested: They hurt my armies, and can't keep up in a battle. The initial volley works fine, but nobody can then move through there. Still too slow for much offensive use. Better to use the machine gun or the Mule artillery.

Beehive keybind

Beehives are something you have to quickly and repeatedly build in Age 2. It'd be appreciated if they could be added to a keybind by default. (Like either the Rice Paddy or the Plantation.) Allows it to be more easily managed by the quickly-spawning workers. For anyone interested, you can change the...

Plague Catapults

Anyone found a way to make this work? Can't perform any kind of sneaky hit-and-run. You have to attack multiple times to really get the damage going, and it's a slow-moving unit. Can't beat out its alternatives as far as siege go (Marauders, Mule Artillery, Saboteurs, etc.). Works fairly well for bl...

Re: Zulu Matriarchs...

Rule 1: Assign certain women the task of constantly giving birth (and nothing else)
Rule 2: Give those women the title of Matriarch and lavish them with extra food.
Rule 3: Don't let pregnant women into buildings, especially during enemy raids.

Clearly, the problem is that pregnancy is contagious.

Re: Nam

Just realized we have a stealth system in the game. If you give the Vietnamese militia a weak aoe attack (from a distance) and the ability to fire while invisible, you get a slow attrition scenario. Can be countered by bringing explorers/tross with you. Difference between this and the Italian mob is...
