How to modify the Stats-advancement?
« on: January 20, 2008, 02:49:01 am »
Id like to modify the stats-advancement of my soldiers...the advancement of their weapon stats seems quite ok, and finally realized that their accuracy will become slowly better...but concerning speed there is no advancement i noticed...ok, just after about 20 missions and about 10-15 kills per soldier...not enough for me...

You will have to change the code and recompile the game yourself. This can not be done with scripts.

Thx for the info...so i wont be able to do that myself...that brings up some questions:

1. Will HP and speed ever go up?
2. I sometimes have more HP than normal (105/80). Bug or intended?
3. What are the actual plans about stat advancement?

I intend to completely rewrite the code for stats advancement. I have some rather concrete plans, though a lot is still up for discussion. See also this thread. Mind you, just because it's in that thread doesn't mean it's going to happen, but feel free to join the discussion.

Thx for the link, though i already noticed the thread. Id really like to know more about your current plans/ideas...just out of curiosity... :)

edit: as it needs to be coded, i am not sure, how difficult a complex learning curve might be. I would be quite content, if all stats would

1) actually increase at all
2) grow at a moderate speed
3) you have the possiblity to train your replacement soldiers (training), so that the loss of one specific/extraordinary trooper is not that devastating...

i like your ideas. sounds really good. I am not that bad in maths, but I didnt really understand your explanations about the progression of the XP, but the basic idea looks great!  :)
