Siege weapon changes:

  • CATAPULTS AND TREBUCHETS:
    • New algorithm now used for Catapults/Trebuchet projectiles that properly takes into account starting power, gravity and firing angle of the siege weapon:
    • Starting power determined by number of winches for catapult, and loaded amount for trebuchet – power directly relates to starting velocity (so 20 winches is 20m/s).
    • Arc of the projectile is checked along it for any walls, floors, bridges or fences it hits, otherwise it will travel the full arc until it hits the ground.
    • Anything within a small radius of the landing position will take damage, radius depends on the size of the thrown projectile.
    • Weight, quality, and final velocity of the projectile all add into how much damage it deals to the things it lands on – metal and stone projectiles do the most damage.
    • Projectiles still have a maximum of 20 damage per shot.
    • Added new actions to catapults and trebuchets to allow changing of the firing angle.
    • Firing angle defaults to 45 degrees, can be changed to be between 5 and 85 degrees.
    • Added messages when winching and changing the firing angle of a catapult or trebuchet that will give an approximate firing distance of the projectile.
    • Action time for winching now takes skill into account, will be 33% faster at 100 skill.
    • Projectile landing messages now give a full breakdown of everything they hit, and how many of each thing – as well as naming which structure(s) received damage.
    • Rewrote how the checks worked for roofs and floors
      • A projectile that clearly passes through a roof now should hit it and land there.
      • The box it uses for this isn’t exact to the model, so if the projectile is going over the roof, try lowering your angle or power slightly
      • landing closer to the bottom of the roof than the top of it will be more accurate.
  • BATTERING RAMS ADDED:
    • Minimum 21 body strength to use it.
    • Uses the War Machines skill for skill checks – action time is 33% faster at 100 skill with a base timer of 30 seconds.
    • Checks a short area in front of the ram for anything to hit, first thing it hits will take damage. Area should be closely lined up with the model.
    • Can only be used by one person at any time, user must be quite close to be able to use it.
    • Damage dealt increased by the ram quality and the skill check result.
    • Ram does double damage to walls underground.
    • Citizen or ally with destroy wall permissions will deal bonus damage.
    • Cannot be used on steep slopes.
  • ARCHERY TOWER AND MAGIC TURRET CHANGES:
    • Turrets and archery towers now have increased range based on their quality – up to 5x their base range at 100ql.
    • Turrets and archery towers will now shoot faster based on quality – up to 33% faster at 100ql.
    • Turrets that fail to fire anything when they have a chance to will now do a firing animation without sending out a projectile.
    • Changed the projectile starting positions of turrets and archery towers to line up with their models – This should allow them to fire from anywhere they have proper line of sight to a target.
    • Turrets should now be able to fire from the top of a house or bridge
    • Archery towers now have a damage falloff, the further they fire, the less damage will be dealt
  • Added a 3x bonus to damage when bashing arched walls manually.
  • Dye requirement for large and small crates has been reduced to 2.50kg and 1.50kg respectively.
  • Merchants who move on due to poor business (self-dismiss) will now return their goods and coins inside a backpack through the mail system instead of returning each item individually.
  • Cultivate option is now present on grass, steppe and mycelium tiles.
  • You will now be able to forage and botanize on mycelium tiles.
  • Planter racks will no longer fit in large storage units. Plants inside planter racks currently in large storage units will no longer grow.
  • God conversion changes:
    • HotS template kingdoms (default and PMK) can follow Libila or any player god. All others  can follow anyone except Libila.
    • As per the option for PMK libila priests in 1.3, Libila priests will be able to use the /transfer option to change to a player god deity without a faith loss until the 10th of April

    Are we not going to get the bloodthirst update, along with the other little updates in that patch, that WO has?
