Well, it seems as though the forums are getting flooded with questions, comments, and requests on the titans information that I've been releasing. So, could all such things go into this thread? It'll be a lot easier for me, and everyone else looking for info. Plus, it'll keep the forums from getting clogged.

I'll be closing any thread whose subject should be taken to this thread, by the way

Make it a sticky or something in the titans section, thats where all the other questions are! This is a good idea and I think my post with the dates of the titans should be requested to the people who ask any for them

I only want to know one thing really. Will you be able to select what gods to randomize between? Like, say you hate playing with hades and egypt, but wanna go random between norse, zeus and pos. Will that be possible?

Do we still start with towers, or is it only on certain maps?

Can you turn myth units into heroes?

How long are the cool down periods between GP uses?

Do only atlanteans who use the minor god helios get those mirror towers?

Can you use traitor on titans?

How long do titans take to build with 5 vills?

What are the changes to the current civs? Thats the only thing that no fansite has touched up on and its probably the thing that people care the most about.

well Hope_, i can answer one question.

I recall some article I was reading and it said that it depends on the cool-down times. Some god powers, which are extremely powerful, will be only used once, but others, it depends on the power. The trap thing or something i'm estimating 10 minutes, and the ball thing, about 7 minutes.

Cheers,

The Spider's Lair, or trap, as you call it, will have a cool down time a LOT lower than ten minutes. Probably five or six, if that.

The "ball thing" you're reffering to is implode, which is a one-time-use god power.

Question for Soccy:

Will you be able to change the stats for units in the editor?


If so, which stats?

Hitpoints?
Range?
Armour? (including hack, pierce, crush)
Attack? (including hack, pierce, crush)
LOS?
Speed?
Price?
Building Location?
Population Req.?
Bonuses? (aka counters)


Also, with the same question topic still in mind, will the effects change all like-units, or just specific units?

i asked you Socvazius earlier about the unit-resizer. What does it do to the unit's weapon? Does it resize the weapon too, or just keep it the same?

I told you I'd be back.

Yes, please make this thread sticky, it'll be much easier for people to find and come by so they don't go off making a new thread for every question (which was what I was just about to do).

I have two questions, both concerning god powers.

Firstly, the Traitor god power... are you allowed to use it on any unit at all? Because if you are that would be extremely unfair... you're allowed to use it twice with a cooldown time of 4 minutes; that makes it possible to turn a titan, son of osiris, nidhogg or a Greek hero to your control.

Secondly, the Hesperides god power, are the units created instantly like Hel myth units and mercenaries or do they take time to make? If so, how long?

So... *deep breath*

What are the new editor units? Any more cool terrains or special effects?

Is the increased strenght of myth units and GPs really noticeable?

Is the campaign storyline more absorbing than the original?

Are the sounds improved?

Plus all the questions above. Yeah.

hey if u have played titans enough maybe u can answer this question?

1.Are all the civilizations balanced, i mean by all the main gods?

2.Is any god over balanced?which one

3.Is it fair that the titans can use the god powers many times?


just look at it, anubis can cast serpants once and spider lair can be cast 3 time, is that fair?

4.Are the titan gods myth units best?

I think not cause the unit tables show that their hp is not so good. well i dont have to game so cant tell. mabte u can.

Yeah, but the serpents stay around, the spiders die or disappear after one kill. Plus it also has a cooldown time so I think its balanced

Hope - atlanteans get favor by making more TC's (they, uniquely, make TC's in archaic if they have the resources)

I don't think there's any favor-increase thing for other civs, but eggy now have a tech that allows priests to pick up relics

Well I'm guessing that as long as they have a TC, they gather favor (which means it's free, just like Norse) If we just consider the TC's as eggy monuments...it works out

Don't know, sorry.

I don't believe so.

Quote:

From what I can tell, only certain maps have no towers. The majority do have them still.

Quote:

No

Quote:

An average of 3 minutes, you can find them all here: http://aom.heavengames.com/gameinfo/atlanteans/powers/godpowers

Quote:

Yes

Quote:

No

Quote:

An extremely long time. I couldn't give you a figure, but I know it would take a while.

Quote:

I don't know, but I'll do some more exploring in the editor tomorrow.

Quote:

Getting around to that, but my game is going through quite the interesting bug in that it doesn't let me advance and a lot of the interface graphics are gone. Right now I'm working to fix that.

I don't believe you can use it on the Titan, SoO, or Nidhogg. But don't quote me on the latter two.

Quote:

It takes time. They train about as fast as any other average myth unit.

No

You can't view x-pack recs in normal AoM

Quote:

What are the new editor units?

The Atlantean units and other campaign units. What they are specifically, I don't know.

Quote:

Any more cool terrains or special effects?

Yes, mainly terrains for the new random maps.

Quote:

Is the increased strenght of myth units and GPs really noticeable?

Yes, you see a lot more myth units being played in games. A lot more, especially for the Atlanteans. You know those screenshots with like armies of 10 automatons? That's actually possible in TT.

Quote:

Is the campaign storyline more absorbing than the original?

I'm only on the 4th scenario, so I have no idea.

Quote:

Are the sounds improved?

Not really

Quote:

1.Are all the civilizations balanced, i mean by all the main gods?

2.Is any god over balanced?which one

Haven't played long enough

Quote:

3.Is it fair that the titans can use the god powers many times?

Yes, most of their god powers are significantly weaker than those from the other civs.

Quote:

just look at it, anubis can cast serpants once and spider lair can be cast 3 time, is that fair?

Once a spider kills a unit, it's gone.

Quote:

4.Are the titan gods myth units best?

Not necessarily, but they are typically the most easily massed.

Quote:

I have a question as well. In the editor, are there any new water types?

Yes, most of which being from the new random maps such as Marsh.

Quote:

How fast does atlantean favor gather?

Around .3 favor per second, if I recall correctly.

Quote:

And did the other civs get a favor gather rate improvement?

I don't know

Quote:

I don't know, and my problems with TT won't let me figure that out until I fix them.

Whew, that was a lot of questions

Thanks for the quick and thorough reply.

These technical problems you are having are troubling. Is this a problem w/ screener version ES sent you or are the optimized graphics, titan animations, etc. requiring significantly more performance from your computer?

My guess it's just a bug with the marketing beta. I wouldn't expect to see it in the final version

Hmm, seems you closed my post, Soccy.
That's ok, but only if you answer my question . How is the cost of the old myth units now? They would cost less favor and resources, but is it really a difference? You said already the Atlanteans use a lot of myth units. Now I want to know how the old civs work.
Thanks
