no matter what you do, you need a lot of science and production and pretty soon boom, you have shit tonne of excess production and research done and you notice you'll just win faster if you start building the ss parts, even if you were gearing towards some other victory from the start

Missiles do inverted pyramid shape of damage
Plasma carronade follows the same pattern except it might have been even a bit wider than that.
So a a 15 power missile or carronade would look like this:

OXXXXXXXO
OOXXXXXOO
OOOXXXOOO
OOOOYOOOO

And then 16 would penetrate the next level at Y, rule of thumb is X^2 is optimal strength where X is layers you want to penetrate

Gauss always does 1 chip damage

Lasers penetrate according to their damage up to 3
If I remember correctly 6 looks like this

OXO
OXO
XXX
OXO

Then it fills the pattern not penetrating more until at 10 it penetrates 5 deep 2 wide and then kinda repeats the process of adding the side bits and going deeper

I think Particle beam does rectangle shapes depending on the power penetrates deeper. First few levels of power should be 2 deep, 3 deep, 2 wide 2 deep, 2 wide 3 deep and 3 wide 3 deep for powers of 2, 3, 4, 6 and 9

And finally rail guns fire 4 independent projectiles doing chip damage, then 2 deep lines then at 20 damage a volley do 4 of these and in between fill out the pattern.
OXO
XXX
OXO


Missiles, Carronades and Gauss I am sure.
Lasers I am sure for the low power hits.
Particle beams and railguns are bit of guess work but that's about how they work.

All info subject for change in the newest version.

Age of Wonders 3 is actually quite good (not as 2, but still good). Why does no one talk about it?
I guess it's because it's HoMM tier: loved by everyone, but known by few.

Anyway, best specializations for a Necromancer? I went destruction x2 and expander, since i love the "spread blight to cover the entire map" thing, but maybe it's a shit choice?

>Why does no one talk about it?
It's an indie game by a small studio who did virtually no marketing, A lot of people never heard about it. It didn't get to ride on the failure that was CIV:BE at launch like Endless Legend did.

The forgotten are Roving Clan tier garbage.
The tech buying and stealing mechanic needs a serious rebalance. They need HUGE amounts of dust to afford heroes to spy and to buy techs. It's just not feasible and their tech becomes stagnant around T3.

Plus stealing techs implies that the other players haven't teched retarded shit.

and 2, how would ISIS be ina civ game? Civ 4 in particular, Civ 2 had spies that could do terrorist activity.
>>
>>127912191

>Is it something like US right now with everybody speaking english, watching its films and stuff?

Here's the thing.

Nobody has ever won IRL civ.
They've just reached high scores and then fucked something up.
About the USA, you have to kind of keep it in the timeframe of the USA being a relevant country.

About WWI time, the world hasn't seen a major war in a century, and Europe is the richest place probably ever in human history, mostly centred in the British empire.
Long story short, most of that wealth transferred over to the USA (previously sitting on a rickety economy trying to carve out a place in the world) and they saw an insane increase in power. It didn't help that literally MILLIONS of europeans were killed in WWI and several countries fell apart to communism or just general economic failure.

The USA is standing on the shoulders of giants in terms of their influence, particularly languages like English which were largely spread way before the USA existed.

This doesn't make it any less legitimate though, after all, the best civ victories are from clutch moments where you just gain the edge and use it to grab a winning condition.

IRL there is no military/cultural/land etc. victory, they all come together, just with different priorities.

Hell, consider that the Ottoman Empire was torn to shreds after the Allies beat the shit out of them in WWI. If not for that, the Ottoman empire would've survived long enough to start digging up all that oil that was under their feet, and we'd be living in a world with an Islamic Caliphate as the world superpower rivalling the USA.

Also ISIS are just barbarians equivalent (they're a reactionary force that developed due to a long, long tale of complex relations in the middle east/western asia going back hundreds of years but fuck if you wanna get bogged down in that)
>>

Arguably the US has already won cultural victory

>>127918115

>Arguably the US has already won cultural victory

The point is that IRL, civ victories are temporary.

France, Britain, Germany, USA, China, Russia and even a few countries that don't even exist any more have had varying degrees of a 'cultural' victory.

France, Britain, USA all have massive amounts of their literature, media and philosophy spread throughout the world. Hell, it could also be argued that Britain and France still possess some more influence over more 'sophisticated' media (philosophy, classical arts) whereas the USA has a lot more influence over commercial culture with the amount of stuff they export

I'm not insinuating anything about those countries, but the world perception of those countries nonetheless gives them a lot of influence.

But just as countries can achieve cultural victory, they can fade into obscurity afterwards. The only thing cultural victory does is make your culture last forever, but not your country's power.

There's an argument that the Romans pretty much achieved domination victory when they took over most of the world that was relevant to them. However the thing is, Europe and the Med wasn't the only centre of civilization around.

Power is fickle and eventually changes/fades, hence why Civ victories don't apply well to real life.

Nice. Mesons only have a really short range though, right?
I haven't gotten too far in this game myself. I've only ever built 1 warship and it was crippled by an alien (what I suspect was) probe ramming me before it exploded and I had to rescue my crew because I didn't understand training yet.
>>
>>127919186
I'd say 2 men achieved military victory.

NapoopaN and Alexandre the Great. Both of them conquered the entire civilized world.
At either of those times the Americas were hardly civilized.

>>127926256
I hope you're joking.
>>
>>127925695
The main drawbacks of Mesons are the fact that they have lower range and they ever only deal 1 damage.

So it's good against small things where that 1 damage will do significant damage or against things that are heavily shielded/armored, especially with a bit of luck might disable the craft with relative ease which buys time to bore trough the armor.

Against large lightly armored targets it's not that effective since other weapons could engage from farther range and destroy the light armor easily and then have enough damage to destroy the large craft that might simply not die from the 1 chip damage the mesons throw at it.
