Please release the DE game with well established features / mods

Hi there;
The game is old and lot’s of mods and voobly features have been created to make the game even better over the years. Maybe we can build on that knowledge on what is good to include for the day of release.

  1. Rotating Gates: no brainer…

  2. Small Trees: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1222457556&searchtext=small+trees

  3. Alignment Grid:
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=176712202&searchtext=grid

  4. display hotkeys (toggle able maybe):
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1351804166&searchtext=hotkey
    helpful for newer players to get a hang out of it

  5. small walls:
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=680790000&searchtext=small+wall

  6. normal game speed as fast as in vobbly

  7. forest nothing (7x7 space rest wood)
    and forest prison map (place for like 9+ farms):
    should be easy to implement :smiley:

feel free to add stuff we already got and use below.

Kind regards

This is a good idea, take whats in the old game from the mods and transfer them to the new from fan popularity, I think Microsoft needs to take a look at the use of mods on Steam compile a list and have insiders vote and add at launch.

Well, if this is to be even remotely imaginable, there needs to be a lot of work with the modding community, since DE isnt just a revamp of HD, but a lot of new and rewritten!

I don’t know their source code, but even updates can disturb mods! Sounds like a fantastic idea however.

Yes, I have read this aswell! I think they were added by a collab between devs and the modders of those mods? Not sure though.

But hopefully your list becomes added, more variations with toggleable features :smiley:

Yes there are these so called community councils for every DE title and probably for IV too.

That sounds awesome! Thanks for the Info :+1:

Good idea dude! However, I don’t think small walls are necesary by the way. I would like my walls to be accurate as they were in the history. Not in a human’s size at least. They would better solve this issue by adding map rotation to the game. Even a 4 angle rotation would work.

I think small trees should be an option in the game without a mod. It’s one of the most downloaded hd mods as it gives you significantly more vision and most importantly you know exactly how many villagers are on that tree line, no hidden / forgotten vills.

It is an option in the game without a mod if you would have read the thread you would have seen it.

I second this motion.

Also, I’m putting together a mock up of the new UI (for myself only - Fan Made) … can someone suggest as to what do you want in the new UI ? Here are a few things on the top of my head right now:

  • 2 UI’s (Minimal and Normal)
  • Isometric 3D map (A isometric map for a isometric game!)
  • Kill Map: A map showing using a gradient, at which place on map you lost the most troops. For example a More Vivid Red color to mark places with about 1000+ unit losts.
  • More stuff…

Please send suggestions here, or on artwork … or discord ( SomeAB #4529 )

Here is my artstation: https://artstation.com/someab (keep an eye out, I will post some stuff … within the next week)

T90 has influenced many over the years… 1111

Someone will make a mod for this eventually…

OK, side note: I’m not in the beta and no one in the beta told me anything about the game so…

  1. Happening
  2. Might be happening?
  3. Might be happening?
  4. I don’t think it’ll happen. But this is something I wanted so much…
  5. Might be happening?
  6. Heard will happen but wanted both steam and voobly speed.
  7. There is Forest Prison map and it can be done via any .RMS script.
    Displayable hotkey is something I wanted so much…

@bigbossbro08 If you are talking to me, It is happening. I heard this many times…
