World War One: ISH v3.3

Submitted by PurplePoot
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
World War One: ISH Version 3.3

A World War One strategy game made by me with testing and support from Clan WW1 (now dead) and Clan QUAM, World War One: ISH relives the Great War in its trench warfare, massive artillery usage, naval combat, deployment of chemical weapons, and much, much more from the strategic perspective. Following a historically accurate timeline, there is little deviation from the actual course of events that is not caused directly by the players' actions during the game. Will the war remain an Entente victory, or will the Centrals triumph?

Features
  • Trench warfare.
  • Nation-specific infantry and trenches.
  • Historical timeline.
  • Artillery, mortars, and gas.
  • Naval combat, including submarines and torpedo boats, as well as more conventional warships.
  • Naval merchant trade for increased income.
  • Capturable cities and ports which provide income and trade.
  • Automatic wartime production of infantry, mortars, and materials to ease macromanagement and focus the game on the battlefields.
  • Ability and construction hotkeys mapped to QWER for ease of use.
  • An epic battle over Europe!


Screenshots
<3.0 screenshots coming soon seeing as the old ones were so outdated>


Q&A
What does ISH stand for?
Insert Suffix Here. The name was originally a placeholder, but it became an in-joke with my friends and sounded good, so it stuck.

Possessions are not historically accurate - for example, Italy controls French West Africa. Why is this?
While the land held by the Entente and Central powers is historically accurate, it is to some extent distributed among the players so as to improve gameplay.

How many players should be in a game?
The game should ideally have at least 10 players - any less and it starts getting quite hard to control your team. 12 is ideal.

Why are there so few doodads and other terrain features?
There were more in the private betas, but I got fed up with them obstructing the camera and pathing, and deleted them all (later re-adding trees in strategic positions). I doubt I'll ever add more unless someone comes up with a feasible way to incorporate them.

<X> is imbalanced. Can you fix it?
We've done a lot of balance testing on this, but all this testing was with experienced players who know the game inside out. As such, there are likely imbalances in more conventional play, and feedback is appreciated. Please post a comment or send a private message!

Planes were important in World War One. Will they be added?
They actually weren't that important, outside of observation balloons for scouting and planes for shooting them down. Beyond that, I never really got around to adding them. They may show up in later versions, but I doubt it.

Many historical events are not included. Are there plans for their incorporation?
I tried to keep the timeline simple, mostly strictly sticking to countries joining the war. As such, it is likely no events other than the Russian Revolution and entry to the war will be included.

Why did you choose not to use a preview image?
I'm actually looking for a (legal) preview image, but as of yet haven't found one.

Why is North America where it is?
I had it shrunk to fit it on the map without extending the size beyond the already large 256x256, and the placement is to reflect the long travel time between it and the mainland while again not extending the map size.

<A commonly recurring question>
More to come! Feel free to post your questions as comments if you have any.

11:50, 26th Sep 2009 Linaze: Entertaining map with decent terrain (for this kind of map anyways), but the true charm of this map lies in its gameplay, there are several different units ranging from infantry regiments to naval ships. I did miss...

    Why do you care if I double post or not, i can post whatever I want. And Im glad you agree with me, france wont stand a chance against Germany with a noob britian as partner, so thats why i suggest that france needs a buff

    I never said your making bad suggestions, I just like to look at the opposite of your idea to see if it works or not.

    Plus your double posting in a administrator ressource... I don't want to be mean but that's stupidity at it's finest.

    Besides I suggested aircraft but it's been denied for reason of uselessness. I'm busy with making a map myself so I can't have time to suggest things myself until I actually play it, (unlike most of the people who give perfect scores...)

    Off Topic: I find it a fault in the human mind giving away a perfect score, perfect does not exist in the world only God is perfect, which is why I will never give away a 5 out a 5 or a 10 out of 10.

    I know nothing is perfect, Tau, u dont have to get into a philosophical lecture on me with ur sage-like wannabe smart talk. So am i the only who has multiple suggestions for this map? U and other ppl honestly have nothing to suggest other than having planes?(planes are going to be hard as heck to control, you'll have to refuel them and shit or have some limitation on them or they will be OP).

    And Tau, i can make as many posts as I want, theres no rule about how many posts you can make....and double posting isnt the greatest stupidity, its trying to act smart when ur not(like what u sound like in ur posts), not to be mean or anything...cough* cough*

    Ok let me sum this up you double posted twice, you flame me, and probably the others on this topic. I can smell the punishment in the air.

    I find aircraft really useful, but this is Purple's map and it's for him to decide to or not. It doesn't have to be realistic with a fuel system and all that, besides if that where true how come the ships and tanks don't have fuel?

    It's not easy making a good suggestion, you complain about France being to weak against Germany, the point of this map was to be historically accurate but also not at the same time, France weak vs Germany is trying to be a accurate one.

    There's no system in this map saying when a player is being terrible at Great Britain, France, Russia or any other empires\countries. So it's the player's fault if they cannot assist, giving France a buff would make it uneven for the Central Powers.

    Ok who cares about how many posts i make? No one does except for u, and im glad ur finally giving a good argument about why France shouldnt get a buff instead of getting all preachy and shit. And the only buff I want France to have is to get more starting income or to get a 1-2 more artillery to begin with so in case France is up against a Pro Germany and there happens to be a noob Britain(i have had too many games where this was the case) France can at least hold its ground and not get overrun while waiting for Britain to pour in reinforcements. Tau, you have to think about that possibility and not just assume all players will do their best with their countries, but the fact is that West Germany starts off with more crap in almost every aspect(money, troops, artillery) and if a France player were to face off against a west german player at almost equal skill level, the west german player would win simply because of the advantages that it starts off with. And France getting a slight income boost and a few more troops, mortars, and artillery to begin with isnt asking for too much

    So Purple, when is next update coming out and what will it have?
    For next update i think you should you should buff tanks and armor vehicles, so that infantry/machine guns will just suck against them and that they will stand a better chance against breaking through massed trenches, but artillery and mortars can still take them out. Give them more atk range too, they have same atk range as infantry which doesnt rly make sense.

    Increased range: Artillery are already vulnerable as hell as it is.

    West front: I can't balance the game assuming some players will suck, otherwise the game will suck if the players are well matched (which is the target scenario

    Next version:

    Trench nerfs
    Slight trade nerfs
    An attempt to find out why the victory trigger stopped working
    Random balance tweaks which are undecided.

    Probably some time this week.

    Also Purple, for next version, change the skin of either merchant ships or transport ships to avoid confusion between them

    Maybe some What If event? Like say the Zimmermann (foreign affaires minister) letter actually reached the ambassador in Mexico, and start a war against the United States to reclaim there territory. Not enough room I know but maybe a decreased income rate for the United States to keep the Mexicans out of there states.

    Another what if event is what if the Russian Communism overthrown the gouvernement earlier and gives Russia a cheap infantry army.

    I have the communists working with the Centrals in this game as the Centrals supported Lenin while the Allies actually invaded Russia to attempt to stop him. It isn't perfectly historical, but there's no good way to implement the Revolution properly.

    Bah if it was 100% historical then it wouldn't be fun now wouldn't it?

    I got no suggestions since you covered basically everything except aircraft lol.

    Poot, how about adding flamethrowers as new units? They will have less atk range than mortars(mortars have 400, FT's will have like 200-250) but faster atk speed and do splash dmg.

    Also Poot, i think machine guns are pretty weak now(i thought they were stronger in earlier versions for some reason). Maybe im not noticing this, but do machine guns even do splash dmg in this or they just target one unit(cuz thats what it seems to me). So i think machine guns should get buffed for next version(more aoe dmg/range-their range is barely higher than infantry, and since they are stationary, they get killed off easily by cannons and massed infantry, and MG's are suppose to kill mass infantry)

    They just target new units. I'll definitely buff them again in the next version—I did find them a tad weak.

    You need to update your WCIII to version 1.24, either that or your system's busted.
