Life Though The Ages

Hello, I'm here to say I'm almost done with my lastest project "Life Though The Ages"!
What I need help with is...
-I need testers
-I need someone to do Terrain, (I hope I'm not asking too much... =/)
-A hoster when it is complete.
-Rifleman trigger, 75% of missing target.
-Unit ideas, building ideas.

Life Though The Ages is a game where you research to make units, ect. This one is more realistic. One of the maps I really wanted. My favorite feature is the Rifle Age, with rifle men. They have a slow cooldown. So they could get over runned by footmen. But their attack is high. Taking out most units with one hit. Also the mortar team is the same. But with higher attack damage. There is also no heros.

Please post comments, ideas, questions, ect.

Thank you. ^_^

Updates-

Made some tests with units today, the units did what I wanted, but the tank didn't attack, after editing the tank again, it worked how I wanted it to. One tank by it's self took out 6 men. A very small tank army (1-20 didn't count, it was one small line of tanks so it's in that range.) took out a whole army of footmen. And small army of rifle men, two mortars, and one tank took out another army. The army had about 50 footmen. So a mixture of men could over run the Rifle Age units.
Going to add a Advance Rifleman. Witch will have a very low cooldown. And will take awhile to make, and get.

There was a custom game based on civilization. It was very cool. I can't imagine how long it took to make sheesh. You should check it out--might give you ideas to improve upon.

Dont have units that kill in 1 hit, say you have an army of them against an army of footmen. It wouldnt matter that you can overrun them with footmen because you would lose them all by the time you started attacking the riflemen. If not than if your army is to big the rifles will still win.

And I think what your talking about Ruination was called Heroes and Empires. Its a shame nobody played it as much as they should've. Really shows the ignorance in gamers. If it was empires only it would have caught on. You start in neolithic and end up in future, theres about 12 different ages each unlocking usually 6 different units and many building upgrades. If I describe it anymore you would probrably quit your project though, so discover it yourself :eek:

I may increase the cooldown. But the attack is what "I" want. It makes it seem more realistic. I may end up giving the footmen more armor so it takes three hits. Also the person that upgrades to the Rifle Age may have the idea to make the whole map their empire, kingdom, ect. Or, complete conquest over the other players.
Lets say, if there was a real rifle men. And there was a real footmen. Who would more likly win. The rifle men would.
There is no food limit so a huge mass of footmen would surly defeat an army of rifle men. I may also decrease the unit training time for footmen, and increase the rifle men's training time... The same with the tanks, mortar team, and cannon towers. And decrease the rifle men's health to 100. And increase the tank's health. Making the tank the most useful unit in the game.
I know this takes out allot of exp with WarCraft melee games. But wouldn't it be nice to play a harder map where it takes more skill?

May I see the map?


And thanks ban-lord2 it may be awhile before you get an email asking you to host... Or you may never get one depending if I throw this project too. =/

Well hmm. I don't think my dial-up is going to attatch the map. I clicked upload but it never began. It didn't do anything. My connection is really bad. I'm sorry )=

Update/bump

I'm planning to make a Machine Age, where the the Marine (and others that I have thought up yet) can be made, then a Computer Age, this will be an upgrading Age... The Space Age will have the Zergs, and other upgrades ect.

Need some new help, how can I make the Rifleman have 75% of missing?

New Idea: You start with one whisp, you click on it. There will be 4 chooses. Orc, Human, Undead, and Night Elves. There you can make upgrades, just like the humans (Main race I started with). But, to do this I could use some more help. =/

-Unit names, and building ideas.

=) Thanks for reading.

Make Riflemen have Curse permanently on them, and change to 75% chance of missing?

From the depths, I come.
uh, have a trigger cast curse on them? why does it need to be in a trigger, abilities run it smoother.

    You would probably have to take a loan to get the Rice cert it is like 14l
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
