map/setting requests

Post by GFips » Sun Jan 07, 2018 6:36 am

Lux has far more than 800 different maps. In addition there are different setting options (increase rate of cards and income, timer, and so many more), which gives an huge amount a variety and diversity.

I have started this thread to give you the chance, to post any wishes concerning changes of maps and settings of the standard hosts. We had so many requests of players in chat or different threads.

So this is the right place, if you think any actual host should get a change in the settings or if you think one map is missing. Feel also free to discuss about others suggestions and special settings in an appropriate way (but no offenses allowed, keep the discussion always impersonal!). We have several rooms and so the possibilty to set different settings. Players can then choose which settings they prefer, Don't blame others, just because you do not like a special setting. This thread is meant to tell us, if you think a special setting/map is missing or should be changed.

Sillysoft usually sets the maps and settings that become popular over the last time. Please post here with details on why you think there should be a change or if you think a special map is missing. Mods can change settings of the official sillysoft hosts if needed, but will only do severe changes if there is a sensible reason or the majority wants a special change. We cannot fulfill every single wish. There is still the feature to host your own games with your own preferred settings.

If you have any requests for the map of the month (MOTM) please post them in the official MOTM thread .

Rapa Nui and War of the Roses are great maps with low income and 5 % cards increase.Mesoamerican Batle,Alexander conquest canada maps USA war zone and most of the USA states are fun but with low income and 5% cards.It makes the game better and makes less places for luck or income holding.

Not only there were many marathon games with these settings, but they were the slowest Bio games ever.
Bio is made for extreme settings, can't turn a beast into a prince in the real world.

General K, I show you played 23 FH games at these settings during the Sunday Chase and averaged 12.361 mins per game

So i decided to look at your last 23 fh games at the other settings 30%, 15%^: You averaged 12.653 mins, slightly longer. So I'm not really sure what your basing your statement on.

The strategy is different, but in my opinion, the 20% income 15%^ cards may take a little longer to develop kills, similar to in classic, however, you should be able to avoid long standoffs that typically occur if you have several decent players who are holding similar income in a bio game.

there are cases of marathon in the 30% settings as well, and probably it took one or 2 games to elevate the average you calculated.
but in general, games with 30% or higher tend to be faster.

try to calculate the shortest games in both 30 and 20 then compare. in my opinion you will realize that he fastest games are 30% +.

That was exactly my point was that 30% has more "fast games" but it also has many more marathons because at a certain point the income increases negate the card increases. So do you want more consistency in games or do you prefer some games ending in round 5 and some ending in round 50? For me, I'd rather there be an ending that is played right that doesn't involve 1 guy suiciding because he's bored and sees no end in sight. But this may just be me trying to encompass more of a classic feel on bio players who don't want that. BUT, it should be an option and that's all I asked for in the first place.

oh BWE, stop wasting your time by trying to make Bio a more strategic map... it will never be the case.
if you are looking for strategic play where most wins are based on intelligent moves and merit, then let's all move back to CLASSIC!

Room just froze with 25% income 20%^. Now we're stuck with two rooms of 30/15 and 20/10. Marathon settings. Can we please have a little more variety and also look into why these rooms are freezing so much? It was a 1-man bot game and during the bots turn, it just stopped working.

Thanks.

Will

I'm currently in the BioDeux extreme 25% income 20%^ cards and it's me and 5 bots. The room is frozen again on one of the bots turns. I can't even report it, but this is becoming a huge problem. I'll also post this in the necessary thread, but this is why we need options.

Nevermind. There is no longer a troubleshoot/bugs section in the forum.
