Remaining TODO before release
« on: September 06, 2017, 09:24:37 AM »
Right, I need to make a list to stop this dragging on forever, so:

  • Finish campaign interface improvements
  • Do battle interface changes
  • Ship additions: Sea Serpent, Merpeople, maybe Kraken/Squid
  • Units: Tikoloshe, Rebel Wiggles, White Wolves, (Secret Unit Sp), (Secret Unit Bw)
  • Ensure all units are campaign recruitable
  • Building card UI for (Secret Building)
  • Finish temple fixes
  • Tweak priest ancillaries
  • Tweak rates/factions of other ancillaries
  • Add ancillaries: Trumpkin, Reepicheep, Sword of King Peter, Horn of Queen Susan, Vial of Queen Lucy, generic Dwarf, generic Badger, generic Centaur, Marauder hag

Stretch ideas:
  • Bonus faction unit ideas: Sangomas, Woses, OT Horse Archers, Arch Vassal Cav, Tel elite swords, Maenads, Devotees of Tash, Sea Kindred
  • Bonus ancillary ideas: Tokoloshe ancillary, Child of Ramandu, Dufflepud, Priests of Calor/Mun/Erin deities, Inyanga, Sangoma, Mermaid, Adventurer
  • Bonus building ideas: +2 Munesh Temples
  • Local (loc-recruit or rebel) units: Galmian Sailors, Galmian Sailing Ship, Guards of Teshish

Good luck finishing it all! And it's all good, I'd rather wait and have a perfect mod. I could help a bit if needed.

Help would always be great :) What areas would you like to have a go at?

I've meddled about in the files for some time now, though I wouldn't even call myself a half-modder.
However out of all the things you listed, I can probably do all the ancillary work if needed and can write the descriptions for any required units.
PM me (if that's the appropriate means of communication on this forum?) if you want anything from me, I've got some free time.

If you can work on the ancillaries on the "Add Ancillaries" list, that'd be fantastic :) I'm happy to do the graphics for them, but if you can PM me at least the descriptions (and if you're OK to do it, the ancillary code, and trigger code) that'd make life a lot easier from my perspective.

OK good to know that I am some use to you :)
They'll be ready by next Saturday I think, does that sound good?

Yes, great :) I'm not sure how much time for modding I'll get this week - I'm spending today on it mostly, but I've got to move house for the third time in as many months at the end of next week so during the week I'll have that to prepare for!

On the plus side, I think I've finally finished the interface improvements/changes:

Added all the ancillaries, gave them all particular special triggers (including two new special building additions to allow for that), and made their pictures :)

Very much so, and thankyou again for doing it :) If you feel like doing any more, I can send you a short list of extra bonus ancillary ideas that need descriptions!
