AI Breakthrough

Posted by at Phoenix Rising News on June 7, 2016

After weeks and months of testing, and trying to figure out how to get the AI to react as a human does in a galactic environment, the PR team have finally achieved a significant AI breakthrough:

 

The AI now aggressively attacks independent planets, takes worlds, builds fleets, and stomps all over unwary humans if given half a chance. 

 

The AI equasions to do this have been in place do this for years, but for months the AI has lain dormant, effectively asleep. We have tried hundreds of different ideas to get the AI to activate - all to no effect. 

 

And how did we achieve this? 

 

The frustrating answer, familiar to most modders out there is simple. We changed 1 value in the XMLs, instead of increasing the value from 1.0 to 1.25 we should have decreased the value to 0.75. It just took 6 months of testing to realise that is what we needed to do!

 

WOW. Did the AI react or what?

It annihilated one of the testers in Core Worlds in under a quarter of the time taken for a human player to "WIN" Core Worlds if unopposed. 

 

Now that we know the AI is working, I have to go back and undo many of the campaign changes put in place that were an attempt to make the AI respond, but the mod is finally alive and kicking. We need to test and polish a bit more, but this makes us a lot closer to where we want to be.

Campaign #1 - CORE WORLDS

Posted by at on December 9, 2015

At the centre of the galaxy, you find the oldest, richest, most heavily populated... and the best defended planets in the galaxy. Single planets in the Core have more financial and military influence than whole sectors in the Outer Rim.

 

CORE_WORLDS.jpg

 

CORE WORLDS is the first of the campaigns in the Rise of the Empire Era, which is set at the end of the Clone Wars. The formation of the Galactic Empire has been announced, but many worlds are either actively opposed to the New Order or are highly independent planets that will resist the Imperialisation of trade, commerce and law. You get to rewrite history with either the early Galactic Empire, or the scattered elements of the Phoenix Rising Movement.

 

Screen_243.jpg

 

All of these campaigns start with a handful of planets and outdated Republic-era and Clone Wars technologies. Many of the neutral worlds will be far stronger at the start than your small fleets, and these campaigns are lengthy. It is vital to plan for long term growth, and in many cases your production capacity will far exceed your initial income, and it is important to grow both militarily and financially.

 

The political influence of leaders also cannot be underestimated, and many politicians give time reduction bonuses on construction (motivation), and best of all, price discounts for the most influential.

 

You should also be aware that the larger starbases need considerable fleet strength, with destroyer and capital-class warship support for the level 4 and 5 starbases, before an invasion can be considered. It is no longer feasible to effectively destroy a starbase with corvettes alone, but your Level 2 starbases are vital to continued financial growth, so don't ignore them.

 

Screen_242.jpg

 

It is worth noting that the income created by light transports is a percentage of the planetary income, so make sure your light transports are in orbit over your wealthiest planets. You receive light transport revenues once units have made 1 trip into hyperspace. XQ5 platforms add 25% to your base planetary income, and are well worth the 3 week production time on your richer worlds. However, there is a limit of 2 per planet, and many of your Core holdings already contain at least one customs station, with a welcome boost to revenues. 

 

Before considering invasion, make sure you scout target worlds by espionage, stealth heroes, and attacks by a lone scout unit to ensure any invasion is feasible, and that you can escape if it gets too difficult. Many worlds have interdictors in their fleets, trapping invaders to certain doom. And don't forget about small infantry raids with up to 3 infantry units. This can be a quick way to capture lightly defended units, with the advantage that you destroy the orbiting starbase if you manage to capture the planet.

In Core Worlds, you start with 6 influential planets : -

 

PRM Abregado Rae

The smuggler port of Abregado Rae is fiercely independent and highly resistant to being ruled, and is looking to Corellia for guidance in the growing opposition to the Galactic Empire. If the smugglers on Abregado-rae can join forces with the Corellians, they could form a powerful syndicate.

Strategic Considerations: Threat from Byss.
Heroes: Obi-Wan Kenobi

 

Screen_241.jpg

 

PRM Alderaan

Alderaan has been a staunch supporter of the republic in the fight against the Separatists, with the Royal Alderaanian Shipyards providing the engines for the Acclamator-class Assault ships. Both influential and with excellent facilities, Alderaan is politically opposed to the New Order and Bail Organa is one of the key figures in promoting the idea of active resistance to the ever-growing power of the Office of Chancellor.

Strategic Considerations: No Immediate threats.
Heroes: Bail Organa
 

PRM Chandrila

Chandrila is a world of free speech led by Senator Mon Mothma, who led the Delegation of 2000 to limit the powers of the Chancellor. Chandrila has a strong defence-fleet and is working with both Bail Organa and Garm Bel Iblis to take increasing military action to oppose the New Order.

Strategic Considerations: Major threat from Corulag.
Heroes: Mon Mothma

 

PRM Corellia

The free world of Corellia is the leading manufacturer of light freighters and corvettes with unrivalled construction facilities. Invoking an ancient law, legendary Senator Garm Bel Iblis has kept Corellia out of the Clone Wars and is strongly opposed to the changes imposed by the New Order.

Strategic Considerations: Major threat from Byss.
Heroes: Garm Bel Iblis

 

PRM Farrfin

This smuggler world has a vibrant underworld and finds the Galactic Empire and its new taxes a considerable threat

Mega File Editor reads Config.meg from GreyGoo

Posted by Banshee at Petrolution News on July 30, 2015

Hello everyone!


Mike.nl has released a new version of his Mega File Editor that is able to read the encrypted config.meg file from GreyGoo. That file stores the core rules of the game, such as unit stats, behavior, AI and much more. Humans are able to understand the .XML files and the .CLP files. It is unclear at the moment if the game is really moddable or not and what would be its limitations. Mike.nl has also updated his .MEG File Format document to cover the changes in GreyGoo.

Grey Goo's 4th patch: the ballance patch

Posted by Banshee at Petrolution News on March 28, 2015

A couple of days ago, Greybox has released the first ballance patch for Grey Goo. Here's the official notes on it with a long list of changes:


The first balance patch is here!

Here is the finalized list of changes going into the first major balance update released on Tuesday March 24th. These include revisions inspired by the testing done on our Public Test Branch. See the previous balance details here.

Any changes labeled with [PTB] resulted from data collected during the Public Test Branch.

Due to the number of balance adjustments we are implementing with this patch, both 1v1 and 2v2 ranked leaderboards will be reset upon the update's arrival. Your Elo matchmaking rating and win-loss records will be wiped during this reset, allowing you the opportunity to test your skills in a new season.

GreyGoo's third patch is online

Posted by Banshee at Petrolution News on March 13, 2015

Yesterday, the third patch for Grey Goo has been released. It should be a quick hot fix patch with the following changes:


March 12, 2015 Update Notes

AI

Alhazen Human AI will no longer build all air pads and no units

Fixed an issue that could cause the AI to stop attacking

Hotkeys

Fixed an issue were hotkeys were inconsistent when using the Goo interface

Human Teleporter eject hotkey now works properly

Fixed issue where hotkeys were not properly displaying for tech upgrades

Units

Bastion taunt now properly affects Beta units that are mounted on walls



I guess that the issue that could cause AI to stop atttacking was the critical one that needed to be wiped from the history, considering that single player games are played by many people. That's probably the reason that they've made this hot fix in first place. They've been announcing some heavy ballance changes for the upcoming patches and you are able to test it already.

Grey Goo has been released.

Posted by Banshee at Petrolution News on January 27, 2015

Ladies and gentlemen, as the title of this news says, Grey Goo is the latest game released by Petroglyph Games. Of course, Petrolution will be supporting it. You can now post your mapping tutorials, tools and anything related to Grey Goo in our site. And in order to start our support for this new RTS game, we have an exclusive updated Open Source .BIG Editor in our download section. This new version of OS BIG Editor opens .meg files with format 2 and 3 (Grey Goo uses format 3) from newer games from Petroglyph. It still does not open the nasty config.meg file from Grey Goo, neither the one from End of Nations beta. They seem to be protected with some very odd sorcery that has yet to be studied by the community. So, that's it. Get posting and help us to make this game become more modding friendly.

Grey Goo, the next game from Petroglyph

Posted by Banshee at Petrolution News on March 13, 2014

 

 

Petroglyph has recently announced their next real time strategy game: Grey Goo, which should be published by a mysterious company called Greybox. It should feature 3 new factions and all the good and solid mechanisms that makes real time strategy games fun, such as base building, resource collection and a focus on macro-management rather than micro-management. The game will be Windows only originally and it should be sold on Steam. It can be played online and offline (skirmish) and it should feature a story driven campaign. According to Petroglyph, the game should be available on late 2014 and it will feature soundtracks from Frank Klepacki. For more information, head to Grey Goo's Official Website.

Petrolution is fully functional again.

Posted by Banshee at Petrolution News on November 5, 2013

Welcome back, everyone. Petrolution is working correctly again. We've managed to figure out the server mechanics that were affecting the redirection and they were disabled here. So, feel free to browse the site, submit tutorials, files, mods, etc.

 

We have a lot of sections about games that no longer belongs to Petroglyph or are not longer supported, but we'll keep them for now. Also, End Of Nations is no longer a MMO RTS, but it is rather a multiplayer online battle arena and it is in the sole hands of Trion. I don't know if we'll add content for this game on our own. Probably not, unless we see some interest in the responses for this news post.

 

Anyway, enjoy this place and contribute for it to make it even better.

The Escapist End of Nations Preview

Posted by Digz at Petrolution News on August 15, 2010

The Escapist has also come to various conclusions based on their hands-on time with Petroglyphs latest game in development, the MMORTS game End of Nations, here is a small part of their preview:

RTS players will likely be pleased to learn that you can't just move in and blow the hell out of everything for an easy victory. We failed because we didn't work together, we didn't coordinate, and we certainly weren't familiar with our forces. But it's not incorrect to say that End of Nations seems really over-tuned at this point. There were too many enemies that spawned too quickly and took too long to defeat. It takes too long to get out of combat and retreat to a safe haven to nurse your wounds, and it's hard to regroup with your teammates when you're split up.

Firstly, it's all about PR, over at Petroglyph forums lies the main user base for all EaW/UaW players left, that's why in my new sig and all other sigs I make I will link every single mod that Petrolution hosts. I will of course make my sigs look cool as always to attract the most attention.

Arguably, you're all thinking, what's that going to do? Well, Berek, the Community Manager at Petroglyph wants to make sure the community of these games stick together, I have proposed that we most mod news and spotlights in their monthly community newsletter which thousands of fans read, to get your mods on there is my top priority and it will give you a massive boost not only in downloads but fans participating in discussion and wanting to know more about your mod!

I'm also going to be publishing weekly news updates here on Petrolution about all of the updates and news about your mods, as well as other interesting things that are happening over at Petroglyph.

It's a fantastic time to be a hostee here at Petrolution, a time where you are going to get a lot more exposure rather than in the attic of the Petrolution forums. I have found the key and opening up that attic door, letting your mods flow out, but at the same time attracting new mods and fans in.

If you have any suggestions, feel free to PM/Email me or comment here and we can see what we can do for you!
