3701+1 ongoing development thread

Postby PhilipJFry » 31 Oct 2018, 13:28

Hello Commanders,

i've just merged the first Pull Request on github after we released patch number 3701.

That means i'll make another thread documenting all the changes that we make so people can give feedback on those changes.

List of stuff that is new in the FAF Develop game mode:

Please keep in mind that game patches are for fixes/enhancements of the game and NOT for balance changes. Some of the changes made may affect balance due to the nature of them but we also try to work as closely as possible with the balance team to get feedback/permission to certain changes.

Best Regards,
PhilipJFry

We will probably look at some units/weapons and the target priority list that they currently have thanks to Strogos PR that allows us to specify the priorities better.

The first thing that came to my mind was to remove (t1) Engineers from the target priority list of the Percival so it doesn't try to kill t1 engies instead of point defense or other structures.
I also got the suggestion from chosen to remove t1 land scouts from the auto overcharge target priority which sounds like a good idea.
The laser on the ACU and T4 Units in general probably shouldn't fire at random engies before targeting other stuff such as buildings as well.

If you have any suggestions regarding target priorities and how to improve them then feel free to leave a post in this thread so we can look at them and maybe change some targeting priorities to make units a little bit more intelligent.

I would suggest to add ACU to target priority list of all land experimentals and remove t1 engies from this list.

Indeed. Acu to the top of the list for GC and other exps so it doesn’t go full retard when you’re trying to chase a fleeing acu.

We’ve already talked about subs for other subs.

Can we completely disable stuff? Because mercies autoing t1 units sounds like the dumbest this ever. I don’t even know if they are, please make sure they don’t.

Mmls target buildings? So you run by and they don’t all miss engineers or tanks.

We will probably add some target priority presets in the near future so you can switch in game to a priority list that has the ACU on top. Not sure if we want to edit the default list with that available.

Mercies don't auto attack anything at all

MMLs already target defensive structures before mobile units but i guess we can change that to structures in general

This was some time back but we were talking about torpedo weapons priorising submerged targets over surface ones and how to troll that by bringing in one t1 sub to draw all the fire from harms and such.

Don't ask me specifics, I'm old, I can't remember what I ate yesterday xD
