Game Mode - VP with territory point attributes

I'm working on a new game mode for Wikinger mod, it's basically a mashup between VP and Annihilation modes.

I've created a new entity that replaces all territory and VP points with an "objective point" the more territories ahead of your opponent you have = the number of tickets dropping per sec. Objective points follow the same rules as territory points, they must be in supply or you don't cost your opponent tickets.



We will be testing it and continuing to develop it within the Wikinger community, however if this is something that the vanilla community deems interesting enough we would be more than happy to release a standalone version for the wider community.

The issue I have is that fuel and munitions caches cannot be built on these Objective points, nor can SWS trucks set up in the territories.

The points were created by cloning a VP and giving it the same attributes as a territory point, if cloning a territory point and giving it VP attributes is the way to go then I'll do that instead, or is something I need to set on the fuel/muni cache & SWS truck ebps file?

This is a very cool idea!

The Fuel/Munition caches and SWS Truck have each the requirement to be in a standard supply territory. To avoid these requirements, you have to let the new point act as a default territory. I think you have to replace the 'territory_ext' or 'type_ext' of the new point with the default territory types.

Good luck and I'm looking forward to see the result!

Thanks, once I've got it developed for Wikinger I'll look to port it across to the vanilla community if there is enough interest!

I've checked these both and they're identical to the territory point values. I'll see if I can twist knobs and push buttons and see if I can make it work, otherwise I may clone a territory point and give it the Strategic Point = True and see if that works

Very yes

I am VERY interested in playing a mod such as this.
Regarding VP's, Relic should've gone down this path originally IMO.

Quick update!

I did some testing, this time cloning the standard territory point (the Wikinger one) and cloning across all the UI and text, however the only change I made to it was to change strategic point from false to true.

This allowed me to construct both fuel and munition points on it, however I was still unable to set up a SWS truck on it.

I had a quick look at the SWS requirements and I couldn't see anything that stated where it could be set up, if anyone could point me in the right direction as to where to find those requirements I will investigate.

At least we're part of the way there.

I've opened a github repository for conquest mode, once I've sorted this for Wikinger I'll look to start on one for the vanilla game and make the source code available.

--

Found it, it's in SBPS - I'm wondering if I can make an exception to the requires not when the entity of the Objective Point is on the map it will override the requires_not?

Any suggestions on how to do that would be amazing!

I've done some more work, it's completed for Wikinger and I've almost completed my port across for the base game, did some tests, cloned the ability for setting up the sws trucks, removed the requires_not - sector type - victory. I cloned the trucks and added them to it as well, however when I tried to set them up I still got the unable to set up in VP dialogue.

Any other ideas as to where to find another requirement for the setup?

It's in the construct_ abilities on the sWS squad. Each one has under requirements_target two requirements: required_in_territory (which you probably want to keep) and required_not / required_sector_type / sector_type_victory (which you presumably will want to remove). I removed the latter for my mod and it works to allow sWS trucks to set up on victory points (in some maps I found that restriction to be problematic).

Thanks Dreadbot (and SneakEye on steam) for me to include this in the game mode it looks I will need to clone the majority of the OKW faction starting settings to allow me to remove the SWS trucks requires_not - victory points.

I'm also unsure if this will further conflict with other mods if it is used in conjunction with a tuning pack.

I think initially it may be best to leave this requirement on as they can still be set on fuel and munitions caches, and also it should leave it much more tuning pack friendly.

If anyone wants to playtest it, drop me a PM and I can link you to the file.
