Quote:
Likho has a new model by brunocb, giving it a proper singularity bomb. This update also has many fixes and a few balance changes. Some of the fixes are due to an engine update, such as a decades-old bug that caused reverse-built units sometimes to try to slide off the map. On the balance front, Bulkhead now has a bit more range than Stinger, Duck is a bit better, and Disco Rave Party spins faster.


Balance


Duck is no longer the equal-slowest raider.
  • Speed 90 -> 93 elmo/s (no longer matches Bandit)
  • Missile range 235 -> 232 (matches Bandit)
  • Missile turn rate increased by 16%, so it reliably hits Dart.


Bulkhead is more sturdy and can safely shoot at Stinger.
  • Stays deployed while mid-air
  • Range 600 -> 640
  • Sight range 660 -> 700


Crab and Bulkhead can deploy mid-air.

Kodachi is killed in one fewer shots by Dagger.
  • Health 680 -> 660


Disco Rave Party has all its bearings replaced.
  • Base turn rate increased by 25%
  • Maximum fire rate increased by 6.7%
  • Spin-up rate increased by 18%
  • Increased minimum turn rate by 25%
  • Can turn without spinning down so far, as a result of the above.


Features
  • Added new Likho model (thanks brunocb).
  • Added optional radar color in LOS and fog stripes under Settings/Interface/Map/Radar Color.
  • Added animation-stun to most striders. They no longer return to a neutral stance while stunned.
  • Guarding units can now be automatically set to a lower selection rank under Settings/Interface/Selection/Filtering (thanks, Amnykon).
  • Improved overdrive payback tooltip.
  • Added metal shared, energy excesses, and energy shared graphs.
  • Mods can now include their own modoptions files.
  • Reordering factory queues no longer forgets Alt-insert.
  • Cloaked units no longer try to shoot at unseen mexes.
  • Free-For-All games are now not counted for ranking immediately, rather than being discounted when the server restarts (thanks, Shaman)


Fixes
  • Fixed rally points of factories with structures right in front of them.
  • Fixed overlob prevention vs. jumpjets.
  • Fixed a shadow bug caused by UI scaling.
  • Slowed Detriment can no longer be stolen by transports.
  • Fixed defense range circles for ballistic projectiles (thanks, Helwor).
  • Fixed Djinn deployment when told to stop while stopping.
  • Fixed being able to click twice to start a skirmish game.
  • Fixed reverse-built nanoframes sometimes sliding off the map (thanks, marcushutchings).
  • Fixed queuing dense line moves (recent engine bug, thanks, marcushutchings).
  • Fixed structure ground decals persisting after death (recent engine bug, thanks, marcushutchings).
  • Fixed an issue with action registering (thanks Helwor).
  • Made UnitLeftRadar more consistent (thanks Helwor).
  • Terraform construction can no longer catch fire.
  • East-facing morphs no longer result in West-facing units.
  • Fixed lingering noammo icon on wreck tooltips.

Howdy! Reinforcements have arrived at YouMustConstructAdditional... patrickwieth has recently made YouMustConstructAdditional v0.95.30 available for download. YouMustConstructAdditional.. is a real-time strategy game that uses the OpenRA engine. It forks Combined Arms, and it strives to create massive battles with GDI, Nod, Scrin, Allies, Soviet, and China. Here is the official announcement from YouMustConstructAdditional..'s staff about YouMustConstructAdditional v0.95.30:

Quote:
The Nukular MCV mode is now functional but will be patched in the future according to how it plays out.
Nukular MCV mode is like "Exploding Kings" in AoE2. For those who do not know this, you have a King, and if you lose the King, you lose the game. Furthermore, the King dies in a gigantic nuclear explosion. In this game, it is not a King but an MCV with the same properties. This mode is best for FFA games as it gives an almost defeated player a possible purpose: get revenge with the Nukular MCV. Also, it can be used to make Conyard Sniping much stronger than usual if desired.


New Features

  • The Transport Ship now explodes like the Nukular MCV and shows the same green tilt if a Nukular MCV is loaded. Air transports (Carryall and Dropship) also show this, but their Nukular Explosion is weak in case they are downed.
  • Transports that have the Nukular MCV loaded get a speed bonus of 50%.

Balancing

  • The Explosion of the Nukular MCV now spreads the nukes more evenly and thus deals more damage in a wider area.
  • Force Shield has its cooldown reduced, and in Nukular Mode, it is significantly reduced.

Bug Fixes

  • Fix Nona SVK turret sprite
  • Anti Tank Mines (French Cluster Mines) dealt 100% damage to all target types. Now, they only deal 100% vs. Heavy Tanks, 75% vs. Reflector, 10% vs. Infantry and Fortified Buildings.

Hello ladies and gentlemen! Openage has some interesting updates posted recently by their crew. For those unaware, Openage is a free cross-platform Real Time Strategy game engine that provides the mechanics of Age of Empires, replicating its look and feel, making it more moddable, and allowing multiplayer games with more than 8 players. Here is what you need to know about the progress on Openage:

Quote:
Hello everyone, we are happy to have you here for yet another openage update. For the latter half of the month, we have taken a small break from pathfinding to work on other small internal projects that have been piling up, e.g., some leftover tasks in the renderer. That also means that, unlike last month, this update won't be 100% pathfinding exclusive, so those of you who enjoy more variety have something to look forward to!

Pathfinding in nyan API

Since the pathfinding system in the engine is mostly finished, we have been making efforts to officially use it in the movement systems of the game simulation and build it into our rudimentary map generation. The first major step in this direction is the integration of new pathfinding-related objects into our nyan modding API. This allows game objects to utilize the pathfinding functionality in several ways.



The new API object PathType can be used to define grids in the pathfinder. Usually, there exists more than one pathfinding grid per game. For example, AoE2 has two grids, one for land-based units and one for ships. If you are very generous, you could additionally consider that there is a third "air" grid, as the ambient birds flying all over the map have separate pathfinding rules. A unique air grid is also used for flying units in Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds.

PathType objects can be referenced by other API objects to reference a specific grid, e.g., by the Move ability with its new member path_type. This tells the engine which grid to search for pathfinding when the ability is used by a game entity. For dynamically influencing the cost of the grid, there is now a Pathable ability that changes the cost of grid cells for one or multiple grids at its location when it is active. The latter ability may, for example, be used by buildings to make parts of the grid impassable as long as the building exists.

For map generation, the Terrain API object now allows defining the pathing costs associated with each terrain via the path_costs member. This member simply assigns a cost value to each grid defined with PathType. When the map is created, the terrain generator uses these values to initialize the cost fields for the grid in the pathfinder.

Rendering Multi-textured Objects

After adding all the relevant pathfinding types to our API, we are finally able to put all the pieces together and make units move with proper pathfinding. However, there was one minor problem that we wanted to resolve first: While the game state has supported tiling with terrains for a while, the terrain renderer couldn't display them properly yet. In fact, the renderer would only use the texture of the first tile for texturing a whole 10x10 chunk, so all chunks looked like they only contained a single terrain type. Given that this is rather distracting when we want to test whether pathfinding based on specific terrain costs works, we took a slight detour to extend the renderer first. You can see the result in the screenshot below.



Previously, each terrain chunk in the renderer was handled as a single mesh that would be drawn with one texture in the shader. In the new implementation, the chunk is split up so that all tiles with matching terrain textures get their own mesh. For example, if there are six different terrain textures, then there would be six meshes created for the chunk. All of the meshes are drawn individually, but this is practically unnoticeable as the meshes border each other seamlessly. You may have also noticed the lack of terrain blending, which currently makes the tile edges very distinct.

After we updated the terrain renderer, we also applied similar changes to the world renderer (which draws unit sprites). Here, we added support for rendering animations with multiple layers. In the above screenshot, you can see this in action when you look at the castle, which consists of a main layer and a shadow layer.
The main layer is the building sprite, whereas the shadow layer is the semi-transparent grayscale sprite to the left of the building. Previously, the renderer would only draw whatever layer was defined first.

The principle is roughly the same as for the terrain chunks: Every layer gets its own mesh which is drawn individually. Draw order is a bit more important in this context because animations of different units are more likely to overlap each other than tiles in the terrain renderer. Therefore, we added the possibility to insert renderable objects by priority into the rendering pipeline. As a result, all animation parts should now be displayed properly in the game.

What's next?

Now that the terrain renderer actually displays what's happening in the gamestate, we can start working on integrating the pathfinder again. In theory, this is pretty trivial to add, but we'll have to see if we encounter some errors in the implementation.

The next obvious step for the terrain renderer is blending support. This could be much harder as we would have to find a strategy that can handle the blending styles of all the old and new releases (AoE1, Conquerors, and the Definitive Editions all have different approaches). We will probably try to tackle the classic Conquerors blending first and then iterate and adjust gradually for other styles.
