Re: Played first game and now the rules questions

1) Difficult terrain: Do you round up or down for distance or is it an absolute 2 for 1 rule. For example if your move is 7 do you move 3, 3.5 or 4 inches in difficult terrain? Absolute 2 to 1 2) If an AOE hits with the required number does it suffer the -1 to strength like a ranged attack? Depends...

Re: pretty much dead?

Yeah, it has been pretty dead. Lack on new content does that a bit. If MWG were to release another faction there'd be a huge increase in posts for a while. But I think the major cause is because MWG store shut down, which would really be quite a large drop in revenue, so that might have caused issue...

Re: Spray Weapons

Spray Weapons are templates. You place the template at the base of the firing unit (unless specified otherwise). Go from there. (So no, and no for the first two questions)
No cover is allowed from templates. All units are rolled for to hit (I believe. Not concrete on that one. May be auto-hits...)

Re: Some honest criticism

And you also get the problems of unbalanced army unit sizes. As in, one army has 5 units and the other has 9 (random numbers for random numbers sake)

Re: Some honest criticism

Quick point out - UGO-IGO typically refers to unit of one player, follower by unit of next player, etc. What you're referring to is My turn, Your Turn. But other than that I'm going to stay out of this discussion. I'm happy with the core game mechanics, and I'll leave it to those who are able to tes...

Re: Reclaimers-too much spray

I'd just like to mention that we can potentially go through a version every two days or so (though not as often anymore) from major changes that need fixing realised from community feedback

The Future of Dark Potential?

I haven't found an answer to this most distressing question.

What will happen to Dark Potential if (when) the MiniWarGaming store closes? Will DP continue to be made? Sold? I don't want this game to die out before it's time. I don't want this game to die out at all...

Re: Next Release faction?

I believe we could help speed up development, but there hasn't been enough released for us to do so. Everyone has their own idea about what each faction, particularly this one, should be, look like, behave, etcetera, that without an official release giving us a bit more info (maybe a few art styles,...

Re: Holiday Scenario

It was more the "...player who's turn it isn't gets to place the additional marker..." that bugged me. The language sounds clunky and then you run into problems with multiplayer games, let alone free-for-alls. Another wording could be "...the player who takes the next turn places first, placing make...

Re: Next Release faction?

Animals and Bioformed are the same, but unfortunately, and don't take me verbatim, I believe matt has stated that Bioformed will be released last, because of the large amount of work still to be done on them. Or at least, at that point... That was a good few months ago, so progress may have affected...

Re: Holiday Scenario

May I make a minor change? If there are an odd number of markers, the player whose turn it isn't gets to place the additional marker changed to Markers are placed alternately by the players, with the opposing force placing first But otherwise I love the scenario! :) Great way to get into the holiday...
