Custom AI War theme
« on: April 28, 2010, 05:07:43 AM »
This is a Custom AI war theme i put together. Picture is worth 1000 words. Pictures however cant describe the music. I used the main menu music from AI War w/o Zenith Remnant. For dire music i simply increased the tempo.



Unfortunately because i don't know how to make new weather, I was forced to overwrite existing weather. So don't be surprised to find fleet ships in the river. :P

The forum wont let me attach the file, because the 6.2 mb file goes over the 8 mb limit :-\. So megaupload will suffice.
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=88WS2B37

To install, simply extract to your Tidalis directory. Backups for things that are overwriten are included.

Feedback is appreciated.

EDIT: Oops i posted this in the custom puzzle section. Move it to the main section if needed.

Wow, that's really cool. I hadn't expected to see something of this sort! Perhaps Chris or Keith will be able to make the theme editor support creating new weather types, if it doesn't already. Awesome work. :)

Also, apologies for the weird attachment bug. We haven't been able to figure out what's causing it. Despite the 8 MB limit, it consistently refuses to let anyone upload files bigger than about 2 megabytes. I'm not sure how we can go about fixing this; it's definitely pretty frustrating.

Edit: I'm going to move this to the main forum to make it more visible (and, well, it's not a puzzle). If we start getting more themes, I'll probably put up a custom themes forum and move them all there. :)

Cool!

I'm not sure what you mean by weather or changing it; you mean wind/rain, etc?

Or did you change one of the existing weather types by putting fleet ship images in it?

Thanks,
Keith

Yes. I replaced the water weather images that are used on the river theme with images of fleet ships.

This is probably because you need to tweak the php settings on your server. I think the usual default limit is 2 MB. Do a google search for "php file upload limit" and you should be able to find details.

The usual gotcha on that is that you have to set both the upload_max_filesize and the post_max_size settings. If the upload filesize is larger than the maximum post size, it will be limited to whatever the post size allows. In this case, it appears that you want both of them set to 8M.

There are likely other things that can cause problems in this area, but typically those two are all I need to configure to get it working.

Seems the latest update messed up my theme a little with random weather directions. The fleet ships will fly backwards sometimes.

Is custom weather support on the list of things to go into the game in the future?

Yep, we intend to try to get that in, likely during the game's polish phase in June. More details on that could be provided by Chris or Keith.
