Does Sonja not remove terrain stars in AW2..? Or is that something she picked up in AWDS..?

Yes, that was something she picked up in AWDS.

If you read this DP, thanks for all that information to fill up the boards.

Unfortunately there is an extreme lack of information regarding earlier entries in the series, such as Famicom and Game Boy Wars. From what little I've gathered, there are few unique features that haven't already been reused in later games. In fact, Super Famicom Wars used unit ranks before AW4.

One such feature is GBW's impromptu hexagon tiles which is unusual considering the tiles were still squares. Will the engine be robust enough to handle nonstandard tile arrangements? This is not a suggestion for the feature itself, it is just to gauge the extent of the engine's modability.

Actually, I did touch upon that on the game plan when I was looking to add hexagon tiles.

The good news is that, map wise, it'll be stored the same way as a regular map of AW. However, if the buildings get 2x2 or bigger, it would cause a huge problem in the way we are currently planning to deal with huge properties in general.


It is definitely going to push us out of scope if we added this functionality. It'll probably push a lot of things back as well, because we will have to create a whole new movement scheme for 6-way movement and attack range patterns for 6-way ranged attacks. I am sticking really hard to AWDS and AWDC for now because those 2 games already have plenty to include without having to add another movement scheme.

Will it be added in the future...

Possibly. I am trying to design a map save/load system that'll allow easy storage of any map type, including hexagonal maps. However, devotion to getting the 4-way methods out of the way is at the top of the list. In the future, more and more people might find hexagonal maps appealing. We should already have the 4-way scheme completely locked in by then, and we can build a whole new engine for the 6-way movements.
