New feature: Chapter intro clip F.R.

Posted by Patrick on June 20, 2013 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (2)

Some of you might already know how much we love telling stories from the Warlords Battlecry universe. Well, this feature helps us just in that. Whenever you begin a new chapter, a short introduction video will pop up, showing the past of the hero who will be played with or some general information about what happened prior to the beggining of the chapter.

The videos mainly consist in a slide show, a series of drawings (courtesy to TPC graphicians), with background music and ...

Converting and psychological radius F.R.

Posted by Patrick on March 16, 2013 at 11:25 AM Comments comments (2)

For those of you who have played the original game and sometimes pressed 'r' in hopes of seeing a unit's converting radius, only to be disappointed by a single circle around the hero, The Protectors Team has created just the thing you wanted, if not more.

Pressing 'r' in game now not only shows the command radius of the hero, but also the converting radius and/or the psychological radius of effect of your units, in different colors!

New feature: Hero leveling overhauled

Posted by Patrick on January 29, 2013 at 8:10 AM Comments comments (1)

There are a lot of fans out there who miss the wbc1 hero leveling up system. Well, the moments of nostalgia are over. The TPC team managed to create a new and somewhat similar leveling up system in The Protectors. Here're the details:

Firstly, you no longer receive stat points and skill points as in the original Warlords Battlecry 3, but instead receive ability points (APs) like in Warlords Battlecry 1, which can be invested in several/all of the heroes' ability trees.

There are n...

New feature: Army Limit is now determined by food

Posted by Patrick on November 12, 2012 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (4)

You wanted bigger armies? We give you bigger armies!

For those of you who love grand battles with enormous amounts of units, this is now possible in TPC with the removal of the old "250 Army limit" and the implementation of the new Food system. Here's how it works:

Food is gained through buildings. A tower, for instance, produces two units of food per in-game-second. This food is stored in a food deposit (of 999 capacity for now) for future use.

Units consume food. For insta...

Random name generator improved

Posted by Patrick on August 27, 2012 at 2:30 PM Comments comments (0)

The random name generator was originally used to give names for the AI controlled heroes, provided the names were not specifically set otherwise (campaign). With the implementation of the new create hero panel done by TPC team, where whenever you choose a race the random name generator kicks in and creates a suiting name for you, the naming files gained notoriety in the eyes of us modders.

Close study revealed that a lot of the files weren't actually used in Warlords Battlecry 3 and tha...

New feature: Triggered Victory Condition F.R.

Have you ever wanted a never-ending game where you can just build your empire for hours and hours with no enemy around? Or were you ever frustrated when a side was defeated too early, rendering some events useless?

The Protectors modding team proudly presents the new victory condition: Trigger!

Scenario-makers will love this: sides are not eliminated even if ...

New interface: hero creation help text

Posted by Patrick on June 16, 2012 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (3)

Because a lot of the testers sugested that there should be some info on what each skill and/or proficiency does before actually creating the hero, the team and I managed to implement an  updating help text on the right side of the create hero panel. Activation is done by hovering the mouse over a piece of text. Here is sample screenshot:

Complete goal list:...

New feature: campaign time conditions F.R.

Posted by Patrick on April 14, 2012 at 5:50 AM Comments comments (2)

Time was so insignificant in the original Warlords Battlecry 3 campaign that players actually forgot its existence. In The Protectors however, time is now of the essence! The action files of a campaign (battle, dialogue, training, etc.) can now be time conditioned. That might not sound much but it is. Now quests can have a time limit, or have a turn of events based on how you prioritized your other quests, or how quickly you found some location, or how many tries it took to win a battle and s...

New feature: campaign nis dialogues

Posted by Patrick on February 7, 2012 at 8:05 AM Comments comments (3)

Another nice one for you RPG story lovers. Throughout the campaign you can now talk to people without loading a scenario. Just like any other act file, the nis campaign file can be conditioned (variables, companions, time, location, diplomacy) AND, just like any other nis file, can be triggered by choices, allignment, race. This new feature affects both global and local campaign variables, diplomacy and journal (including videos).

Talking to people is now a necessary habbit in the campa...
