Empire Earth IV v9.6.0

Version 9.6.0 Description
Link to topic in group
https://vk.com/topic-51051367_36149391

1. Added a new well-developed and scripted scenario "Tank Ace". The script contains targets, conditions of defeat, a video insert, numerous dialogues and text messages. There are two ways to win and many ramifications in the passage. This should be interesting!
Old scripts are hidden (they can still be opened through the normal menu).

2. The text descriptions of all military units are now indicated: their role in battle, strengths and weaknesses. These are hints for using the unit correctly.

3. Introduced a semblance of inflation (remotely similar to RoN).
1. Penalty for extension
Each additional city in your state increases the level of bureaucracy and embezzlement, as a result all units begin to build 3% longer and 12% more expensive.
2. Scientific and religious conflict
Each university in your state teaches atheism, as a result, priests in temples begin to build 12% longer and 15% more expensive.
Each temple in your state preaches a religion, as a result, all units in universities begin to build 12% longer and 15% more expensive.

4. Research in the academy now unlocks unique units and unique buildings:
In the 1st era in the academy, as a result of the research chain, you can open a slave:
fishing - sailing - slave!
In the 3rd era - you can open the library:
alphabet - writing - literature - Library!
In the 6th era - you can open the foreman:
Design - engineering - foreman!
In the 8th era - you can open the manager:
Paper - standardization - manager !!
In the 11th era - you can open a modern library:
Industrialization - radio - library!

5. Text descriptions of scientific research research institutes now fully explain which research will follow the opening (with a description of the possible effects of the research).
6. The functions of the Jesuit and the counterintelligence officer have been transferred to the spy. AI, just like in the original EE2, can use a spy, including restoring sabotaged buildings.

7. Changed the transition time by epoch, it became shorter, and more like the transition in the original EE2

8. Siege weapons and artillery before the 11th era are now slow and slow-moving. They slow down the army when moving in one unit.

9. Additional function of the priest (works for AI). Each priest has a 1% chance to attract an allied, neutral or enemy citizen or warrior located nearby (without using an active effect). There is also a 0.5% chance of attracting a neutral or enemy structure to your side if a cleric passes by.

10. Changed music in eras, for individual countries, as well as in the main menu.
11. Removed / removed many non-working or poorly working things (
12. Many bugs have been fixed (far from all!)
13. Changes to the balance (the balance is not completely finished yet)

Other:
14. Fortresses and outposts now have dead zones.
15. Minesweeper can no longer carry mines (and people, respectively, too)
16. The effectiveness of items giving armor (armor effect) increased to 15% for one item.
17. Pop limit for all officers reduced to 5
18. The cost of rocket silos and missiles in them has been increased.
19. Ammunition is different in price for different types of units (price range: 10 - 20 - 30 -50 saltpeter)
20. In the map editor, many secondary buildings are now shown at the end of the list.
21. Removed the ability to create your own civilization and your troops (it did not work and led to crashes).
22. The number of anti-aircraft defenses per territory increased to 6
23. Increased the number of towers per territory to 8
24. A limitation has been introduced on the number of city blocks per territory (only 1 type of block - 1 territory).


**********************************
Description of previous versions:
Version 9.5.0 Description

1. All equipment in need is given the opportunity to replenish ammunition
2. Adjusted sounds, including quarries, and noises when selecting different buildings.
3. Edited visual effects: reduced the number of flying particles when hitting a building with a projectile, fixed shadows for many units.
4. Change of tactical battles. Swapped the ranges of the cannons and howitzers (howitzers were universal guns, in fact, there was no need for guns). All types of infantry were added in the 11-14 era. Including a sapper, who can lay mines, build fortifications. For these purposes, the players are given resources, but they are still not enough to build workers. In the 11-14 era, aviation and helicopters were added to all, now there are all types of troops. Added airfields. I recommend playing the king of the hill - there the infantry will be more needed to capture counter. points.
5. Resource extraction efficiency has been changed. In general, mining has become more difficult. Research is cheaper and faster. Methods for extracting resources in terms of efficiency are more logical. See related post in thread: http://vk.com/topic-51051367_31321957
6. Countries are now more different. Each country has two attributes that characterize it. The differences between countries are now much greater, from this you can now build a game. See related post in thread: http://vk.com/topic-51051367_31321957
7. The balance of military units has been changed. In a nutshell - different units require different resources, but no more than two, one of them is food. Purpose: in order to hire certain units, it is not necessary to get everything, you can only get food and something else - this allows you to create an army faster. At the same time, since resources are finite, over time, there will be nothing to hire certain types of units. See related post in thread: http://vk.com/topic-51051367_31321957
8. Fixed all items. Purpose: there are fewer effects from items, they are similar for similar types of goods. easier to remember, more convenient to balance. Now only the last item in the production chain has an effect, but the more the last items, the stronger the effect, we pay for this by reducing the population. See related post in thread: http://vk.com/topic-51051367_31321957
9. The vehicle population has been changed again. in a nutshell - downward.
10. Fixed bugs http://vk.com/topic-51051367_29592181

**********************************

Version 9.4.1 Description
1. Items / Crafts / Industry - a new milestone in terms of non-military capabilities of the game. Her latest and most unusual innovation4.
More details: http://vk.com/topic-51051367_28970040
2. Ecology / New roads - the concept of ecology appears in the game, and some rudiments of a city-planning simulator.
More details: http://vk.com/topic-51051367_28970054
3. New tactics in later eras, new balance - I have summarized all the main changes in the new tactics, brought them into a rational form. Now the tank is really a tank, and the infantry is the infantry.
More details: http://vk.com/topic-51051367_28970291
4. Research institutes, discoveries and upgrades of technology - what everyone has been waiting for for so long, the gradual discovery of technology in the era, the pumping of technology. Own line of tanks, planes, ships for many countries!
More details: http://vk.com/topic-51051367_28970347
5. Scientific discoveries at the Academy - Full-fledged scientific discoveries are introduced, they are studied in a special building, discoveries follow one after another, have their own tree. The discoveries are finally useful, they really affect the gameplay.
More details: http://vk.com/topic-51051367_28970400ht ... /drevo.jpg
6. Wonders of the World. Wonders of the world bonuses. Monuments, Dip. mission. - about a hundred new wonders of the world, each country has its own unique wonders of the world that appear in different eras. Now the Pentagon will never build in Russia, and the Parthenon in the USA. Everything fell into place, and as it should have been originally.
Miracles have their own clear bonuses, they can found various religions. You can also build monuments, dip. missions and many other unique buildings.
More details: http://vk.com/topic-51051367_28970414
7. Alternative Development: Tribal Union, Christian Order, Masonic Secret Society, Trade Empire. Levelable heroes: Odysseus and The Last Samurai.
The ability to win the game by becoming a monopolist in a certain craft http://vk.com/topic-51051367_28390326
8. Improvement of visual effects, textures.

**********************************


General description of the game:
Empire Earth IV is a mod (in fact, a new game) for the game Empire Earth 2 - The Art of Supremacy.
Empire Earth IV is a real-time strategy game, the main features of which are:

1. 15 eras of development from prehistoric to the future. There is a transition between eras.
Each era has economic (crafts and industries open according to the era)
and political peculiarities (in the dark ages, you can choose the path of a nomadic tribe, in the Middle Ages, a knightly order),
own historical sets of military units (t34-85 for the Red Army and Pz5 Panther for the Wehrmacht, etc.),
combat techniques change with the development of the eras (the phalanx of hoplites in antiquity, linear tactics in the era of gunpowder, tank blitzkriegs in wwII).
In general, an attempt to achieve the individuality / atmosphere of each era.

2.18 countries divided into 5 regions: European (Russia, Germany, France, Italy, Greece, England, USA), Middle East (Turkey, Egypt, Babylon),
Far Eastern (China, Japan, Korea), African (Zulu, Massai), Mesoamerican (Maya, Inca, Aztecs).
Each country has its own economic and political bonuses, wonders of the world, a full set of individual warriors.
The idea is the same - the individuality of countries, the most individual are European countries.

3. Developed economic component:
At the first stage, the usual extraction of resources along the ore - warehouse chain.
On the second, the creation of specialized buildings: from a sawmill, mining mines, to smelters and oil refineries.
At the last stage, the creation of full-fledged crafts and industries with the crafting of the corresponding items
(for example, the presence of clothing increases the HP for soldiers, the presence of copper increases the strength of siege weapons, and aluminum increases the strength of aircraft.)

4. Developed political component:
The ability to choose the political course of the country (becomes a nomadic tribe, the order of the Jesuits, etc.).
The ability to win by becoming a monopolist in certain industries.
A wide range of specialized units: spies, priests, merchants, full-fledged heroes with pumping.
The presence of social characteristics of their state - the level of wealth, happiness, health, religion, etc.
The ability to influence the social characteristics of one's own and neighboring states with the help of objects (poison or barrels of wine, for example), the effects of Wonders of the World,
diplomatic buildings, monuments.

5.Enhanced research tree:
In all eras, research is expensive, but really useful.
In modern eras, in scientific research institutes (research institutes) we open tanks, ships and planes.
P.S. And many other improvements.

The attention to detail seems incredible!
Fantastic job :D

A couple of questions:

- will there be an English translation of EEIV v9.6.0 in the near future?
- did you improve the Antiquity period as well? I mean things like chariot archers (missing from the official EE2:AoS), more civilisation-specific structure visuals (for warehouses for example), etc.

I wish I knew Russian!

I'm working on it. I have no people. knowing both languages ​​well.

As a temporary solution, perhaps someone will try to localize it himself. Combine what is possible using the same strings.
The texts are stored in a folder
EE2X_db.zip \ EE2X_db \ ​​Text


- did you improve the Antiquity period as well?
Yes.
Changed all ages from 2 to 15.
Here are all albums https://vk.com/albums-51051367
Can you see screenshots from this link?

In the period of antiquity, new types of units:
Slingers
Hoplites
Melee chariots
Ranged chariots
Elephants with archers
Cataphracts
and etc.

"more civilization-specific structure visuals" What do you mean?

Hey thanks a lot for the quick reply RGV1!

Understood about the English translation, I will be patient!

I can't believe you already have melee and ranged chariots, elephants with archers and a whole bunch of different hoplites! Even slingers and cataphracts...
Yes I can see all the screenshots from the link.
That's awesome stuff...

By "more civilization-specific structure visuals", I mean distinct looks per civilisation (or per world region) for common buildings, such as warehouses.
Example: the original EEII did have city centre visuals depend on the world region your civilisation belongs to, but some buildings - like the warehouse - always look the same, even between the Far East and MesoAmerica...

P.S.: I did see in the screenshots that you added some new buildings, like the Babylon gate, if I am not mistaken? very cool!

"per civilization (or per world region) for common buildings"
We gave up on this. They do not fight, and this is less important than the different units (we think so). It cost a lot of effort.

But new wonders of the world have been added to the mod. About 100 new wonders of the world. This is approximately 8-10 new unique wonders of the world for each country.

You can try to guess what these wonders of the world are.
Many are known only by the inhabitants of the country. Other world-famous wonders of the world.

Each wonder of the world has one of 10 effects. Some effects are negative for the player.

I decided to be so precise that these 3D models kept the proportions of the building height.
Tallest building in the game -
- also the highest in real life.

Excellent work, looks great!
I understand why you decided to leave the visuals of common buildings untouched. It represents a huge amount of work indeed.
Still, maybe I will slowly decide to modify that myself... once I am more comfortable at modding!

Anyway, congrats on the EEIV mod, there's a lot in there I would love to use (especially Antiquity-related units and buildings, which is my preferred period right now). Looking forward to the translation, but take your time, we are all doing this on our free time!

Empire Earth 4 MoD is being developed by one person. Unfortunately, there is less and less free time, for the most part only for the release of patches.
If you have a great desire, opportunity and interest, if you are not indifferent to Empire Earth II and the entire strategic series of EE, then you can join the development team, I will be very glad.
Empire Earth 4 is an unfinished thing. Yes it is, however, it is still a playable thing, both in single player and in multiplayer. Much has not been brought to mind, but, nevertheless, a lot is working as it should, and some features of the gameplay are unique not only for the EE series, but in general for games of this genre. As, for example, completely unique units for many countries in different eras, or large technology trees with gradually opening units for different countries in different eras.
Help is needed in many areas:
1 Development
Editing texts, searching for bugs, imbalance, creating an English version (and thus reaching a global audience), revision of 3d models, etc.
2 Media support
Maintaining VK, discord, youtube, sites, game forums, etc.
3 Explanatory material.
Most of the game mechanics in EE4 have never been explained at the proper level or have not been described at all. There are no video materials showing the development in EE4 (fundamentally different from EE2). There are very few materials explaining the new role-playing system of units, the economic system and updated research.
Not indifferent players, please find me on the server https://discord.gg/cuVwjHr

Hi RGV1.
I've played around in nifscope before but i can't figure out your process for adding Civ 4 nifs to EE2. I thought you exported the Civ 4 nif as an .obj and then imported that over a similar EE2 .nif file, but i just get transparent models in the game when i try that.
I attached a sample of a .nif pulled from EU4 into Civ 4. I also understand the .dds files i have should probably be converted to a .tga

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks!

Thanks Mona! I was trying to use one of those links but you may have more info than i had. Its also been a few months since i tried, been on a Total War kick lol.
Speaking of which, i wonder how RGV1 exported the models from Rome: Total War. Quite a few newer mods that have some good models (BoA, Europa Barbarum, RJN, Sudamerica)

Also forgot to attach my sample file last post, here it is...
