Re: Kaiserklein vs PrinceofKabul

The walls were there only to trick prince into thinking I was going greedy, and also to prevent him from scouting my 700f first (though I apparently left a hole somewhere so I kind of failed on that part). 7 got it completely right there. Was a fun game to cast, wp. I sense now half the reason why ...

Re: ESOC AOE3 Taunt Package

You can also use 7zip which is open source.

Use either of those programs to extract the rar file.

Then copy the extracted files to your aoe3 installation directory -> Sound -> Taunts.

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

Well I only did them once because it's painfully slow to do them and your right there's always going to be differences without a tool. I checked again the start and yea there is a difference in vil times though it's not 5 seconds? I thought the age 1 was better for VC also with a higher food total. ...

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

93 To clarify I tested a lot of BO's including many based around your original test where you only send 2 shipments and there is no market. I will attach 2 approx 8 min recordings for comparison. One is your original test BO with VC/700w max manors and the second is a comparative eco 3vil/5vil BO. ...

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

Well against the AI, but not mathematically processed. I did a lot of builds with and without xp and shipment limitations and yea it's all pretty similar. I think part of the reason is VC benefits more from the tool. Any overgather on lower costs has greater effect on exponential long term growth (s...

Re: Clipsh, clipsh, and moar clipsh

I know when it's happened to me it starts when you rally the vil through the TC, idk what else makes it happen. Something triggers it since it seems a lot rarer with some people.

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

Guess I'll download the tool to find out what's going on then.

I only started market since I thought it would have better synergy with 5vil first and got hd/gangsaw instead of 2 manor start which probably works better with vc 700w. With steel traps I doubt you can hit those early lb numbers.

The villager walking into the water is not that uncommon, or something triggers it so it happens to some people more often idk? I've had it happen at least 10 times.

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

VC first - Colonial age at ~4:10 with 7 manors built during transition. - Last manor starts building at 5:00 - 5:10. - 2 barracks are done by 5:30. - Vill count at 6 minutes is 36. - Longbow count at 6:00 is 8. - Longbow count at 7:00 is 23. - Longbow count at 8:20 is 45.

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

Bit of an aside but what is the outcome of a pure eco VC boom at 6 mins GS? Can you run that in your program? At what time does full manors complete, are there any market techs etc and what is your villager count at 6 minutes (or at an earlier point.) I was just trying a build out in-game that finis...

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

It's way less than 30 seconds but your build operates in a vacuum. You can just look at your logs and see where the shipment is ticking over at 5:27 due the 5 manors completing. Early game xp gains will blow this out the water.

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

Idk 310 seems pretty huge to me. Not to mention the extra villager + vs from that. As for builds I'd assume it would be best around game plans where you spend 1-2mins doing full eco or almost full eco (like 5 cav) into 700w and full production and exploiting the VS difference to make a timing that V...

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

One thing is the 25 wood you are left with after spending 135 * 5 = 675 from the 700, so that's -50 making 304. I don't know about the rest. I would go in and debug the app but that feels like a waste of time over something like this, as no amount of gained VS will make 5v a viable first card as Br...

Re: Brit cav starts: 5v first versus 700w first

The difference at 6:27 plus the gained VS from 5v arriving 30s before that. 250 assuming vills gather perfectly efficiently. I don't know where your math is incorrect, but the sim shows it is. I'll suggest that your program is wrong then or more likely neglecting something. I did see one mistake I ...
