Perhaps it would make for a nice inter-tournament challenge who can produce the fastest hero on a given map with each tribe. so we get good values to compare and to finetune.

But in principal I agree with KoN that they are not that unbalanced. However we should define collectors for them as well as we should define all starting conditions.

Do we have a description somewhere how to install the Amazon Branch on Linux or Windows?

Hi,

easiest way on windows is to install the appveyor builds which are generated everytime one of us pushes a commit.

https://ci.appveyor.com/project/widelands-dev/widelands/builds/29328704

This link is the latest commit which fixes some AI Issues and implements an AI worker management, needed for the AI to handle the complicated experience tree of amazons.

Graphics aren't complete yet though. but game mechanics should work already.

On Linux I believe you need to download the amazons branch from my fork on github and compile yourself.

I spotted 2 bugs:

  • after about 3 hours game crashed for no reason when one opponent was Amazon
  • music settings are not stable. If I put sound on / off I want this setting to be saved. Still plays no music everytime.

could you provide a savegame for that? Needs to be investigated. Please provide the built you used as well. Thanks for reporting.

do you encounter this in other builds as well? because as nothing has changed on this code it is unexplainable to occur only in amazons. Do you use -datadir option for amazons? if yes this might be the cause.

We have an open bug about sound settings getting reset: https://github.com/widelands/widelands/issues/3507

That's exactly this one currently, I guess: https://github.com/hessenfarmer/widelands/tree/amazons

Very good guess. If you download the zip there is everything to compile the branch without using git or even registering on github

That could be very interesting. The question is just who is organizing this.

I'll see what I can do. It may be off-topic, but it looks to me like the description of how to compile for Windows with Inno-Setup is outdated.

Compiling the branch on Linux doesn't work.

And what is going on with Appveyor? I don't see how to install that branch with that and even searching for how to do it doesn't give any results. Could anybody explain?

I've taken a look at some Lua-Files of the Amazons. I've seen that rare wood doesn't get produced if there is no need for it. That's good if you need one specific kind of rare wood. But what if you don't need any rare wood? Should the industry really idle? Wouldn't it be better if in that case the work would go on?

The code looks currently like this:

Skip unless eco needs balsa.

The code could look like this:

Skip unless (eco needs balsa OR (eco not needs balsa AND eco not needs rubber AND eco not needs ironwood ) )
