GLOBAL EVENTS (WE NEED HELP!!)

Hi all,

We are working on a "Global Events" feature which will animate the World Map and add some flavour to AOF series. Those are fired semi-randomly while player is accessing World Map. Those are short dialogues or even shorter event image and a note.

Global Events are fired semi-randomly while players are accessing the World Map.

Global Events have a dual purpose of introducing lore and soft-balancing game. Those are short dialogues or even shorter event image and a note:




We already have 40 of them and more are in progress. This feature will be a part of Open World where player can freely roam AOF world.

However, I would ask for your help if could you please help us to create more of Global Events?

Our scripting engine allows for some variety in checking for conditions:
  • if a given unit’s type exists in the player’s team and also gives count, for example if there are more than two Black Knights in the player’s team
  • If a given unit’s race exists in the player’s team, for example if there are more than five goblins in the player’s team
  • Checks for owned items (and counts)
  • Checks for gold amounts owned by the party
  • Conditions can be combined
  • There are many other possible checks - see Modding Guide in Steam Workshop for more details

Additionally Global Events support optional executions-limit which limits total times a given event is triggered. So you can decide if an event is a one time thing or a recurrent one.

The results of such events don’t have to be impactful and can just introduce lore. Some examples:
  • A comet has flown by (nothing happens)
  • One of the party goblins was cheating in a dice game and the other goblins beat him up (permanent wound for one Goblin and -100 gold)
  • Dwarf rouge shares his the stolen good profit (+200 gold)
  • The party's Necromancer gets annoyed by the monk’s daily prayers and beats him up (monk gets permanent wound)

We already have 40 of them and more are in progress. However, you are very welcome to share any ideas you might have.

The examples are in files there:

However, you don't need to code, just sharing ideas in this post in enough:
https://steamcommunity.com/app/431700/discussions/0/1694917906662452856/

Please just describe in few words what do you have in mind and I will be hopefully able to code that in.


Have a nice weekend,
Les & AOF Team

Reviews

“Age of Fear succeeds because of its combat: using units to protect fragile allies, incorporating hex-based mechanics without the geometric restriction. The result is some satisfying strategy (...)”
6/8 – Out of Eight

“Age of Fear 2: The Chaos invokes the spirit of early 90s strategy games, before real-time strategy became the fashion and reflexes became more important than tactics. (...) it's not perfect, but it is fun, playable, and challenging, and it shows every sign of rapidly improving itself!”
4/5 – PCWorld

FEATURE LIST

  • Two long scenarios - play as a manipulative succubuss or a brutal orc warchief in fully voiced story driven campaigns!
  • Hex-free battle system - units are no longer constrained to artificial grids. Unit's size matters too.
  • Steam Workshop integration - create your own world and share with the community!
  • Easy to Play but Hard to Master - Age of Fear is very easy to pick up but with deep and emergent strategy.
  • Low hardware requirements - the game will even work on that old laptop of yours.
  • Permanent death - all characters that fall in a battle will stay dead - unless an evil Necromancer raises them as Zombies!
  • Diverse enemy roster - game features 160+ unique units with over 250 different spells and skills.
  • AI behaviour is modelled on a neural network system and influence maps. Age of Fear has probably one of the most advanced strategic AI's ever created!
  • Items and artifacts - there are over 100 unique items in Age of Fear, which are randomly distributed. Items not only give bonuses, but also unlock powerful skills and spells.
