There are like a hundred of these games, which one should I try out if I want to get into them? Same for Three Kingdom.

ROTK 11 is the best one.
It's ridiculous how much content those games had and how their cut scenes were better on the PS2 than on PC games twenty years later. Do you remember the name of the comic relief monkey boy in Kessen III? Now he was funny.

The point isn't one about women being unfit or bad at leading. The point is the blatant historical Inaccuracy. I thought this games at least try to respect history. But I guess it needs to be rewritten so it fits with the current equality and diversity quotas. it's fucking tiresome.
Trying too hard.
>I thought this games at least try to respect history.
Yeah really respectful when the Celts in AoE2 look like sheepfuckers because of Braveheart.

The good thing about all of this "variants" is the seethe is causing from those dusty wormbooks.
it's so fun, but also i think is to blame all the content creators selling this as "6 new civs" when only 2 are fully new is just dishonest, it's like they are so desperate to create some sort of fake hype

>is still the king
How did they do it? What makes this game so good?

according to common sense, you have entire city in 1 hex and entire continents span dozens hexes.
If you looked at the tiles and the distance between cities then declared that tanks would have to sit literally on top of each other because of the lack of space you are a certified shitskin
Combining corruption and city happiness into global happiness plus getting rid of the science/luxury sliders cut down a lot of the micromanagement. Culture was actually made useful with social policy trees. Unique civ abilities are fun. Religion and ideologies from the expansions were great additions.
On the other hand, 1UPT has a whole heap of problems. It's fun when it does work but usually it's a slog and the AI can't handle it.
I mostly play III and V, very different games but both pretty well-rounded. Every time I play IV I feel like I'd rather be playing III or V. Never had a reason to play VI when V already exists and VI doesn't fix any of the problems with 1UPT.
I beat the game as India on Emperor difficulty. The achievements for that say only 6% of players have beat the game as India or on Emperor difficulty. I just got attacked by three different civs as India in my Immortal game. How do I win?

What does /vst/ think of this game? I just beat it and thought it kicked ass. I loved Ogre Battle, and I loved this game too. The dialogue could be a bit cringe-inducing at times, but I actually came to enjoy some aspects of the story. Most importantly, the mechanics and squad customization were great. Had a lot of fun with this one.

Has anyone found a way to sequence break by killing the army officer at the refuge camp.
There's no reason to keep Pierre alive depending on the kind of run you're going for. It's perfectly fine to kill him, you get fun lines with some of the mercs, such as Fidel, when you execute him, too.
Fidel gives funny lines every time you kill anyone
Unrelated question: who is the best medic? MD can't shoot for shit and Fox is too dumb to solve puzzles.
MD has incredibly high Wisdom, you can train up his Marksmanship in no time. Fox is also god tier with her trait capitalizing on Stealth in a game where Stealth is already broken. DrQ is one of the best melee combatants in the game, Thor is one of the best stealth killers since he has the Stealthy perk, and his Herbal Pills negate tired AND give grit, which makes them super good. So basically every single dedicated Medic in this game is top tier.
That's how it was in JA2. Most of the dedicated low to mid range cost medics had massive Agi and Wis, meaning lots of AP and actions in combat, which translated to super fast growth. Dr. Q, Danny, Fox, and Thor were usually my go to picks after grabbing Igor and Blood.

>lags your game to single-digit framerates
Are you running it on a casio calculator or something?
>Move to japan
That ain't happening. The setting is extremely Korean and it neither would have as much staying power outside of that environment, nor would a studio separated from its inspiration make as good a product to begin with.
You can see the former in where PMs fans are from today even. Korea is a way smaller market than Japan yet it has the most fans.
The Korean fanbase is p much dead at this point tho
Well okay had a large fanbase then. I highly doubt that a pivot to focus on something other than Korea would work though, if they would have gotten a big break-through in some other market (especially Japan), it would have happened with the release of LCB. It had way more exposure than LC or LoR, was in a genre popular in east-asia, and didn't directly continue on from LC/LoR making it a decent start-point.
I've also heard people say that the Korean fanbase has shrunk significantly due to the employee kerfuffle, but I haven't seen any concrete numbers to back it up other than artists turning their back on PM. Sure that's an indicator, but artists will probably care more about supposed mistreatment of a fellow artist than the general populace. Not saying that these numbers haven't been posted, but I've never seen them and am a bit curious.

Classic Eugen. They have no idea how to actually balance, so they just make the new DLC shit way more powerful, because that makes them money in the short term, as the cost of killing their playerbase long term.

Without a map and scenario editor this game is too repetitive. I enjoyed the missions they had but there are only so many of them. Would be great if we had a community of map and scenario makers but there are no tools available for that to happen.

This wouldn't bother me so much but it does since the devs "promised" to release map maker tools.
I am not a fan of the missions. It feels like by making it “multiplayer”, you either get suck with only tanks or only infantry - doomed to chaperon your ai teammate at the best of times or follow them to be an effective combined arms force and have any hope of winning. I would like it if they had 1v1 missions with no or income or ones with more compelling objectives.

Happened to my with whisky, aye.
It's actually interesting how Winter King handles it. That kingdom title is just a Roman province in 410; I think it's Belgica Secunda. Then, in 479, it's ruled by Sygarius, son of Aegidus. He owns little land directly, but the romanized duchies around Loire are his tributaries (pic), and if he gets enough prestige, he can centralise the state. That state is called Soissons, probably because it's the most common name for whatever political entity existed there during that time, even if it's ahistorical. If the Franks defeat Sygarius, they will also form a kingdom called Soissons, but it's a separate title from the Roman one, with different de jure lands. In the Winter King, different culture groups form different titles in the same land; the mod has a unique dynamic de jure titles system. Finally, when Clovis dies, the Frankish kingdom of Soissons changes its name to Neustria. I wouldn't sweat over the historicity of the Winter King. The mod is inspired by the series of adventure novels with the same title and prominently features King Arthur, Vortigern, Merlin, and Beowulf.
Does the AI ignore mana requirements for wars? I'm here struggling to get enough piety to holy war as it's my only real CB and AI rulers keep eating up all the infidels.

Is Aurora 4x a good game or does it just have a bunch of meaningless stats and numbers to give the illusion of complexity like stellaris?

They decaying orbit disaster has a lot of issues, it's probably safer to just do proper setup where somebody owns earth and moon, somebody owns mars, and somebody owns all the jovian moons in various states of terraforming, and then adjust available resources, industries, population, and starting tech/fleet in order to create some kind of parity. You don't actually need parity though because multi-playing isn't very fun so you're probably doing it for your forum AAR and in that case you can do as much plot as you want.

fighting a decisive conflict on homeplanet is a big gamble, because you can't bet on the A.I just having all orbital assets prioritizing fire on deleting your army.

nevertheless it is interesting to watch WW3 break out without your involvement save for the radioactive nuclear winter you now have to deal with
It's a real shame that there is no real ability for multiply games - with a similar set up to STARS!, where each player sends their actions to a central game master. Would make for interesting times.
Is there a community anymore for it
Supposedly some people on the forums are working on a prototype multiplayer version of Aurora. No idea how far they’ve gotten with it, though.
