ES In AOC you had a in house program that allowed unit combat testing. See Here (Goto Slide 9). Now you most likely have one for AOM. I was wondering if you do could you make a download for it? SOM currently isnt the most accuate and it is just a pain to test units in the editor..... If you could it would be a real help.

Thanx Mokon

PS: and yes I had to put ES in the header so that you would see it

    Gosh, forgot that was up there. What a mess of webpages we have developed over a period of the last six years.. Soon..

    ah.. back to the question..

    Acutally I know nothing about that (or stuff like that , Let's see if Dave "BigDog" Pottinger our Tech Director, can give you a big thumbs down on that, or what the story is.

    Bigdog reads the threads on this forum (and a couple of others), but doesn't post much.. But maybe if you say "Please Mr BigDog grace us with you wisdom" ... You never know..

    Give me money, and I might feel generous enough to say something kind.

    Yes, we do have a tool for rapid combat testing. I will investigate whether it is something you can easily access.

    As with all tools of this ilk, you have to be very careful how you interpret the results. Just because 10 archers beat 10 infantry does not mean that will happen in the game. A real game has factors like terrain obstructions, elevation bonuses and a little thing called micromanagement. Ultimately, tests can get you in the ballpark of understanding unit relationships, but they are no substitute for playing the game.

    Update: according to the lead programmer on AOM, the tool is actually compiled out for performance reasons. No promises, but we'll see if we can enable it for the Xpack.
