Hack idea: Generic Emblem


#1

My current idea is having a massive map where the Lord can visit houses an infinite amount of times to spawn generic blue allies. Each house spawns a different class. Bosses stand on top of most houses, so you have to kill them to recruit more allies. In addition, certain villages will do specific things.
What I wish I could do:

  1. Keep units from getting EXP (except for the lord)
  2. Make the enemies constantly spawn at a rate of once per turn.
  3. Keep the generic units from visiting the villages.
  4. Disable the trade command.

#2

The gameplay seems a bit well…repetitive. It may be fun at first having a bunch of units, but the gameplay would get slightly boring because of the house spawning certain classes. The maps would also have to be very large in order to fit all those various villages and to not make the battle too concise due to large amounts of possible enemy and player units (which would make the chapter even more dull) and couldn’t you just visit houses to the point where you’d overpower the enemy? Seems OK on paper but has a lot of problems when you dissect a bit more


#3

The enemies would spawn every round. In addition, I was thinking about making a limit on your units


#4

There is a hardcoded 25 Playable units on the same map btw. I have already made a similar hack out there, but without the unit reecruting and instead spawning greenies out there in a village.
Other hardcoded units are:
50 enemies per map and 20 greenies per map.

Nice. I was basing my hack off of the DS age of empires

  1. The final boss ability stops EXP gain, though it also stops lethality from working. One should be able to engine hcak it in fairly easily though.
  2. Doable with events? Up to the limit of 50 of course.
  3. Requires hacking the engine to change the usability of the visit command. Actually shouldn’t be too hard.
  4. Give them the Supply Depot skill. It doesn’t actually enable Merch and it just disables trading.

I’m really bad at event hacking… I guess I could try though
