It's pretty good, but I would also say that it's a bit fast. It should be a slow movement. Try doubling the time it takes in the scripts, or atleast 1.5 times faster.

Well now I've doubled it it's an estimated ... 1 1/2 mins so it's to long for me to record as the free version of fraps is limited to 30 seconds but it is pretty cool if i say so my self i'll just have to add a night skybox some more units (when completed) e.t.c.

EDIT!!! : Anyone want to voice the Edoras Spearmen and Archers ? If your interested PM me !!!

Looks like you're getting a grasp around both coding and art, in addition to other neat things (shellmap).

Unless the Mayans are correct, you'll go far ;)

Hey guys sorry for the delay but my Internet was out for about a week ! But I'm back and with a nice update for you guys !

So :
I was playing around with creep systems and now you get to really build a city with a towns people and soldiers patrolling the area !
Observe Stage 1 :
Posted Image

And Stage 2 : ( yes they're from different maps but it's still the same thing )

Posted Image
The Civilians spawn from economic buildings and don't stray as far as the patrolling soldiers Dwarves have miners and soldiers instead of Civilians.
You'll get patrolling soldiers from unit production buildings and all of it doesn't affect your command point limit it is just for scenery

The Evil Factions are more defensive which will have orcs or goblins spawn instead of civilians

I have also fixed the Rohan Fire Arrows, Soon to add some new units to Rohan, and after that the spell book. After the spell book is somewhat complete i think a Beta release could be considered.

That is a pretty cool idea.

Just a few questions:
Do they spawn out of nowhere or with the build-up animation of a new building?
How good are they at defending your base?
Can the AI use them? (Does the AI even need to be able to use them, are they just automatic.)

I'm glad you like the idea and to answer your questions :

1.) They spawn out of the build after the building is constructed
2.) The patrols can are pretty much a light defense for the base, the civilians just run about by the fortress when enemies are near (some just run amok though)
3.) The CPU and the player have no control over the patrols and/or civilians they are un-selectable so they pretty much fend for themselves in situations. They don't stray to far from the building they spawned from like creeps but i gave them the ability to be able to walk/run around farther than the creeps would

Nice idea! I like it. haha i cant believe i never thought about it before. How many spawn? Because it should only be 1-2 and there should be a complete limit per map so people dont lag the game out. Just an idea haha

Well I don't know how to limit it per map but it would be just around 3-4 civilians per economic structure and 5 patrols from unit production buildings and i have toned down the needed space for farms and stuff so you could get a little bit of lag if you build too too much and before i forget the patrols come with just upgraded weapons so no heavy armor e.t.c.

Great idea. The bases always seem a bit dead in this game, having civilians running around helps give that city-building feel. :thumbsupxd:

But like Apollo said, this could cause some lag, and just annoyance from having hundreds of civilians wandering around (SEE has good base-building AI, but with the original game's spammed buildings, this would get bad).

I think you should try and find out if there's any way to limit the people that spawn, if not for the whole map then for each player.
