User Specified Fixed Card Set Values and percentages

Post by nasetheace » Wed Jul 05, 2017 6:06 pm

Would it be possible to let the user set the value of fixed card sets in the game options? Right now, the only fixed option is 5, 5, 5 ...
Could we let the user specify any arbitrary value? I'm playing around with balancing continent bonuses and card set values. Continents going up at 10% per round and card sets at 4,5,6,7,8... seems to be a really fun game on the classic map with 6 players, with cards slightly outpacing the continent values over the long run for the average game. Continent bonuses at 15% seems to outpace the cards after awhile. It occurred to me that it would be easier to balance if they were both fixed, but cards at 5,5,5,5 seems to render cards pretty much irrelevant, even with fixed continent bonuses.

In an ideal world, it would be nice to let the user specify an arithmetic function in ASCII text for card and continent bonus increases. But, having a simple user input field for fixed values and percentage increases would be a big improvement too.

Thanks for a great game! I've been playing LUX for at least 12 years now, and it never seems to get old. :)
