[Squad] Zero Dawn v0.06

Postby tosx » Mon May 06, 2019 3:05 am

These semi-sentient Mechs exist in a strange balance with each other.

Image

Thunder Mech
Zeta Cannon: Fires a piercing barrage that damages all targets in its path, and pushes behind the shooter. (1 damage.)
- 1 core: +1 damage to last tile.
- 3 cores: +1 damage to all tiles.

Earth Mech
Force Loader: Fling units on 3 adjacent tiles away from Mech, damaging them. (1 damage; 3 tiles are in a line on one side of Mech.)
- 2 cores: Flung units push whatever they hit.
- 3 cores: +1 damage.

Tall Mech
Navigation Relay: Command all Mechs to push in the same direction. Upgrade to command other actions.
- 1 core: Mechs can be commanded to charge 1 tile.
- 3 cores: Damage self (3 damage) to allow other Mechs that have acted this turn to act again. (They gain one attack action, only if they've already attacked; if they hadn't moved, they'll gain a move as well.)

Download - requires mod loader to function.
Mod Loader - originally made by Cyberboy2000 and continued by kartoFlane.

Code: Select all

v0.06
- Slight buff and some graphical improvements to the secret reward.

v0.05
- Fixed Doomed Navigator achievement trigger (would trigger after killing one enemy instead of 2).
- Tweaked Barrage achievement to something easier/less random.

v0.04
- Removed Thunder Mech's Coolant Rupture upgrade and shuffled some of its starting damage into that upgrade, to make the early game a bit more balanced.
- Add squad achievements and a secret to unlock for completing them!

v0.03
- Reduced Earth Mech's damage upgrade to 1 damage (still costs 3 cores).

v0.02
- Buffs to both damage upgrades.
- Replaced Tall Mech's Confuse upgrade.
- Made Thunder Mech's Coolant Rupture better.
- Changed Earth Mech's attack pattern (this squad has trouble with enemies diagonally adjacent to them).


I put a 4-island Hard run with v0.6 on Youtube here.

Graphics look amazing for the most part, but the Tail Mech’s head look a bit, off. It looks more like a flat disc then a head tbh.

These are all based on designs from Horizon Zero Dawn, in which the tall mech explicitly has a flat disc for a head!

Ah, okay. I thought it was an animal-like theme, and it was meant to be some sort of giraffe.

I've gone ahead and uploaded v0.02, with some tweaks (almost all to their upgrades). They do make them stronger overall (I had a rather crushing game). The most likely ones to revert would probably be Earth Mech's attack pattern, and maybe further changes to Coolant Rupture if this proves too strong.

v0.01 is still available too, if anyone messing with them still wants to try it.

Hi, I've noticed that the push from the Earth Mech does not cause Vek/Mechs to bump into obstacles when they are pushed. Is it intended?

Yes, it's intentional.

Just updated the mod to v0.05; has some balance tweaks (minor Thunder Mech nerf), and custom achievements!

Thanks to Lemonymous for providing the achievement API as part of his & Djinn's Into the Wild mod. I'm still new to using it, so please let me know if you find any bugs with the achievements or the secret reward!

v0.03 is still in the download folder in case anyone finds major bugs or doesn't want to be my guinea pig.
