Most of what I’ve been working on is addressing some problems I found in the older build (enemy stats were kind of eh), revamping the weapon system (aka we’re full fates now for the most part), and rebalancing what’s already been show off. I’ll see if I can remember to update the first post with the current chapter being worked on.
And here’s a screen, new icons courtesy of @GabrielKnight
The stat screen is slowly changing
“Weekly” update, showing off a bit of the newest addition, 4x, as well as a new class (not finished yet) courtesy of @GabrielKnight (the crossbow, Fulgur and shuriken icons are theirs too). Serpent knights are inspired heavily by Langrisser’s class with the same name. They’re pretty slow on land, but unmatched at water movement. Rivers basically become highways for them to speed across.
So much going in those screenshot, I love the variety of classes !
But If I can, I have some little question:
The Serpent knights looks like a very interesting concept, with how rare water-oriented units are, even in romhack ! but is it complicated in term of level-design to take into account this kinds of units (like to make them shine in their own niche of gameplay) ? Anyway I’m hyped to try this unit
Also, does the ninja in the Hack works like in Fates? With different shurikens doing debuff on foes, and things like that. Even though Fates didn’t made a great uses of them most of times, it was an interesting kinds of units that can add a lot to tactics and shake things up !
And those crossbowman looks quite nice ! Are they a kind of more bulkier archer?
And are the “worg” a kind of laguz-like units? It’s always cool to see some units like that !
Pretty much. Some chapters no you probably shouldn’t be bringing them, but their movement isn’t reduced to 0, they just basically move as slow as an armored unit. So even in less than ideal situations they’re still perfectly usable. Idea is that you will have a wide assortment of units to pick and choose which fit better for each given situation (although if you want to pick your starting 10 and never switch, that’s fine too lol).
There is a debuffing shuriken, I’m not exactly a fan of everything debuffing. Shuriken’s niche is everything is 1-2 range, while knives will always do at least 1 damage.
Essentially armorbows after promotion, like in FE6A.
