Stealth-Based Gameplay Tutorial

Author File Description
Luke Gevaerts
File Details
Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
In response to Haroth's suggestion in the SD&M forum, I've decided to create and upload a tutorial scenario that explains how to achieve stealth-based gameplay and touches on some of the things you can do with it. It's obviously modded, which means the vanilla crusaders likely will never see what it's like; it's also fully voiced, which means 56K connections are probably better off doing something else.

Note for the uninformed: there's no custom installer or anything, so you'll need to back up your data (empires2_x1.dat and empires2_x1_p1.dat) yourself. It's a small price to pay; if you don't feel like doing it, that tells me all I need to know.

Instructions: UnZIP the package in the root of your AoC directory, test the scenario through the editor and enjoy the show.

I threw this thing together pretty quickly; if there are any unexpected side-effects like meteor storms levelling your house or The Netherlands finally winning the World Cup, just let me know and I'll fix it.

Very smooth, and if anyone tries to take it further I'm sure it will prove to be an excellent concept.

There is one slight issue though: Clicking directly on your own units to select them does not work. You have to drag a box round them instead.

Apart from that though, it's practically flawless. Although it's limited (eg units still have 360 degree vision) it has potential for some very elaborate applications.

Yeah, I know about the selection thing. The problem can be alleviated somewhat by grouping units under numbers and using that to select them instead.

Turty Hi Luke,

Thanks for creating this tutorial. Despite the fact that units could still see "behind" themselves, I still found it useful and may use the concept in my own games.

I noticed one could double-click the unit in the fog to select it as opposed to dragging a box/grouping if that helps.
