House Rules AW2

Post by Blame Game » Mon Aug 18, 2014 4:25 pm

Recently I've become interested in designing competitive TBS games. At the moment I have no way of making anything from scratch, so in lieu of that I figured it would be fun to tinker around with the various tools that are readily available in the form of AW2's built-in customizable ruleset, hacks, and also some simple house rules for things that are currently impossible to implement otherwise.

So without further ado, i present Puar Wars, v 0.0000001.


What you need:
- AW2
- This hack.

- DoR-style defense (hence the hack)
- 2000g per prop
- All properties are owned from day 1 (sorry sven)
- Maps are probably really base-heavy i dunno
- New win condition (see house rules below)
- Only one CO: Puar, who is bland with no CO Powers (nobody can stop you from running COs obvs, but I just didn't want to get caught up in CO balance and defensive charging and etc)

House rules:
- Protect the Pipe Seam on your side of the map. If it's destroyed, you lose!
- To combat the super terrible FTA, Player 1 should either a) destroy half of their first income by building units and then destroying them) or b) just take care not to go below the threshold. So if P1 starts with 10000g income, they can never spend themselves below 5000g. Obviously this is a big honor code-type thing, hopefully it's not too much of a pain! =(

I whipped up a quick remix of Little Island to show what I'm trying to go for in terms of maps:

Other maps will be happening of course

If you want to play some matches with this ruleset please PM!

This is super-cute.

I could probably whip up a fairly easy (better) hack that hardcodes/creates some of those rules you want, though!

I rather like the concept. Maybe next weekend I can SSS with someone.

here's my weird version of Mind Trap, which i loved playing on in DoR:

i'm sure there are way smarter things i could have done with it but whatever!
