Since WrathED still don't have option to change global objects in official maps I made a temporary solution by extracting all the official maps of KW...
Kane's Wrath Unofficial Patch 1.04 is a big ban patch
that will try to balance the game a bit more from my and the community ideas and suggestions
Please note that my patch will also going to be a mod, I probably can make a installer but I really don't see the point since I want it to be easy to access and easy to switch from (in case that players will want to play in ver1.02 again)
And also note that I going to start the balance changes NOT from version 1.02 BUT rather from my Kane's wrath classic 1.00 mod since I want to try and rebalance the game again from ver 1.00 with the bugsfixes, but unlike EA who simplify "locked" and limits players actions by taking the building's radius and increasing the earlier game building's costs, I want to try and make more units useful and have fair gameplay so that players won't feel like sticking to one tactic or strategy while ignoring all the other options.
By fair I also mean that I want to try my best to create situations where some units can still live after terrifying attacks if the players had good control, micro, and maneuvers, and to not let players feel that "something" is too over powered to counter.
But when it come to support powers that do damage such as the Overlord's wrath I think it won't be fair to let players waste so much money and see how it gone for nothing, when player have good support power he will want it to at least kill small armies, but what EA done was to completely weak it over to the point it rarely kill barracks, which not feel so useful in my opinion.
As for upgrades I also going to reduce the damage of some of the over powered ones but at the same time not to the point they become useless (again like what EA done mostly in ver 1.01)
In other words this patch going to try to play fair without increasing too much and unneeded costs, reducing damages or limit builds radius, It will try to make more units and unused upgrades and tactics more useful and at the same time will try to save the most import ingredients: "Fun".
If there won't be any other way then I will increase and reduce costs, damages, and radius, But I will try my best to avoid it.
It all will be depend on the players commits, if you have ideas please say them here!
If it will be in my ability and I will see that many players are happy with it, I will add that idea :)
I added the c&c4 visceroid to the game and need your help in regard to what their rule will be...
So the mutant Hovel already have tamed Visceroid (which are the small normal c&c3 Visceroids that came in squad of three)
But I wanted to add the C&C4 Visceroid as one bigger Mother Visceroid, just like how we had two small Visceroids that can mix into one big Visceroid in Tibirium Sun I wanted to go with the same idea and even wanted to add to the small Visceroids abiliy to mix with each other and create the mother Visceroid (not promise I will be able to make that abiliy but can try)
However after I took a look on how the C&C4 visceroid look in the game in big size (In pitbull's size)
I noticed that it's animations look a bit weird in the eyes unless it in the same size of the normal Visceroids
So I thought I may drop the entire mother idea and just make another squad of three C&C4 viseroids who are in the same size of the normal visceroids and have suicide atttack
But it will ruin uniqueness so I thought I should ask the community what they think is better and will make my decision from your advise
So what you think is better?
1. To add Mother Visceriod with medium size and have a bit funny animations ?
2. Add suicide Visceriod Squad which are c&c4 small visceriods which come in 3 or 4 squad memebers ?
Both will have suicide attack, the Mother Visceriod however will faction more like a vehicle and will have more power attack and health while the small ones will have lower attack and HP
What do you think?
Have a better idea?
I was able to fix the animation in big size
Now it just matter of deciding
