The following is the list of outstanding items that are currently on my feature list. The intention is to add all of these over the next few releases. They all have a varying level of difficulty to implement and some will be quick wins. I’m not going to commit to an order or when as much will depend on me being on a roll or not, but I will place a marker against the ones I original intended for the Summer Solstice release. If you would like to discuss the items in any more detail, please feel free to following the links to my GitHub page for each item.
panel_select, panel_think – Add Next/Previous buttons for Desktop – Summer Solstice
panel_select and panel_think need an additional Next/Previous buttons for moving through the pages. The mobile pager is not always obvious.
Option – Don’t swap after successful approach – Summer Solstice
Give the option to stop the auto switch to the newly recruited lord after an approach. Maybe this could be Enable / Disable / Ask with default being Enabled.
Option – Auto Seek – Summer Solstice
Add option to auto seek when entering a location. Doomdark’s Revenge already does this as seek is not a player action. Maybe it could be?
Option – Auto Approach – Summer Solstice
Add an option to auto approach when entering a location in LoM or when trying to move in to a location DDR.
Game Difficulty – LOM/DDR – battle algorithms
Adjust battle algorithms to give Doomguard more success. This would be a difficulty option.
Game Difficulty – LOM – Armies
Add more armies tracking Luxor, Morkin in LoM. This would be a difficulty option.
Game Difficulty – LOM – IceFear / Moonring
The ice fear is calculated based on Morkin’s distance from the Ice Crown and the distance from the warm glow of luxor. The ice fear is then fed in to other calculations.
increase the falling rate of Invigorated/tired, bold/afraid, + effect on + distance to Moon ring. This would be a difficulty option.
Create a campaign that would mirror changes made for the Novel.
- Lord of Silence
- Tarithel the Fey
- Utarg changing sides
- Tunnel to the Tower of Doom
LOM: Gameplay Rule – Varied start positions
Allow various different start positions for the lords. Needs some thought to whom this should affect.
LOM: Gameplay Rule – Replenish Cup of Dreams
LoM – Locations that have a Cup of Dreams have the ability to respawn after x amount of time. This could be altered by the difficulty mode. Other ‘things’ could also be respawned. This would not be dissimilar to how DDR works.
DDR: Gameplay Rule – Armies continue to fight after attacking.
Currently in Doomdark’s Revenge AI Lords have the habit of leaving a fight. This option would make them act like LoM and stay until death or other lords leave. Another potential option would be for them to leave if they consider they are losing… Could also be linked to difficulty.
DDR: Gameplay Rule – Armies attack when near an enemy
Currently AI lords have the habit of not attacking enemies that are close by, unlike LoM. This feature would make them act more like LoM. Could also be linked to difficulty.
DDR: Gameplay Rule – Adjust lord death rules – Summer Solstice
In Doomdark’s Revenge the death rules for Lords should be tweaked to be more like LoM, meaning that can’t die until their army is wiped out. And not if attacking a critter with an army.
- Add Pinch and Zoom to map for Mobile
- Add Shift and Mouse move for Desktop
Add guide and novella to embedded browser
Rather than open in a external browser, open the novella and guide in a embedded browser.
Just to say great you keeping these games alive and kicking! Played them since the days on the ZX Spectrum and over the recent years introduced them to other, also younger, gamers who really love them. Thanks for your work and dedication!
“Currently in Doomdark’s Revenge AI Lords have the habit of leaving a fight. This option would make them act like LoM and stay until death or other lords leave. Another potential option would be for them to leave if they consider they are losing… Could also be linked to difficulty”
Could this be linked to their personality? Strong brave Lords would fight to their end, cowards would run…
Would love to see all of these options!
