Probably, a bit later.
Actually, with SAM, it gives way too much (8x instead of 4x), maybe just tripled value (6x with SAM) will be enough? I would consider even just doubled, as it should not be applied to airbases at all, but I doubt it isn't too small for cities with no SAM.

Maybe in time for 2.6.4?

#7 Updated by Alexandro Ignatiev 5 months ago

Added bonuses for 2.6 (likely goes also for 3.0), considering some suggestions about probability that it's not an airbase and there is SAM.

No. It's wrong that early fighter has the same defense against stealth bomber as novel one. Used defense divider to reduce the defense a bit.

Defender                SAM            Ratio if attacker is
                                    Bomber          Stealth bomber
Fighter                      -       12:12            7.5:16
                             +       24:12             15:16
                           wanted    12:12             12:16
Stealth Fighter              -       12:12              8:16
                             +       24:12             16:16
                           wanted    16:12             16:16

It's the best approximation I could get.

- As you add "quiet" column, it should be explicitly set to all rows, not only to the new row
- Please add a comment why DefenseMultiplier is higher against Stealth Bomber than regular one. Otherwise in a few years time someone is about to see that, not to notice that there's DefenseDivider in Stealth Bomber side, and "fix" it.

#10 Updated by Marko Lindqvist 5 months ago

(This is one of the patches I'd still want to 3.0.0-beta1, but there's not many days to get it in if we want it included to final testing rounds)

#11 Updated by Alexandro Ignatiev 5 months ago

Added.

  • Status changed from New to Resolved

#14 Updated by Marko Lindqvist 5 months ago

Usually we don't accept rule changes to already-released branches, but civ1 and civ2 rulesets follow different rules. As their goal is civ1/civ2 compatibility, rule changes improving that compatibility are considered bug fixes.

Rear thinking: as 2.6 AI does not build fighters and it is not going to be fixed, this change makes AI weaker...

This is true for 3.0 also (and maybe some branches to the future), but you're right. This is probably too controversial change to be included in a mature branch that has already produced several releases. Let's retarget to 3.0.

#18 Updated by Alexandro Ignatiev 5 months ago

OTOH, per #922066 it's unlikely that AI has ever built any bombers in 2.6...

But it will once that bug gets fixed. So not messing with S2_6 with this patch.
