Well, @Eagle of Fire, i wont sell you a Car.

You perhaps did not see any Difference, cause there was none, as i told one thousand Times.

For that special Case, that NRTFM (noone reads the f**ing manuals), i wrote
in damned red huge Letters, that if the Solar System Names havent changed,
you simply NOT played my Mod. You need to change the Ascend00.COB,
therefor i wrote a BATCH and a README, and all these Posts in huge and red.

I NEED to "cheat" for the AI, cause it colonizes not every System, builds no
massive Empire, builds no special Fleets, and dont defends its Border Systems.
To give the AI an Industry-Boost causes a damned heavy, super Game.

Quote:
And all this for a difference so small in difficulty (if there was one) I didn't see it.

If it's the same again I'm not interested.
It seems, you did not read the one thousand Hints in damned red huge Letters...
you simply downloaded the .zips, unpacked, and wondered why your Ascendancy Game,
seems to be "not so much more difficulty"... but i suppose, it was THE SAME,
cause you havent used my BATCH, havent read my README, and havent changed
the existing ASCEND00.COB into another. It was just the same Game as ever.
Or changed the Solar System Names into new ones?

You dont understand. My Ascendancy Mod is simply insane, awesome, incredible!
No Joke. The AI USES ALL SPECIAL WEAPONS now.
It is a super super super Game now. And if you dont want to play... just your Loss.

If you want to play my Mod, you have to use a modded ASCEND00.COB.
I have modded the ASCEND00.COB, and THAT FILE, you have to exchange
in your Main Directory Ascendancy. The old ASCEND00.COB out, one of my
00.COBs out of Sub-Folder DELYXE into Main Directory Ascendancy and rename
into ASCEND00.COB. Thats the last Time, i should write this damned Fact.

If there are no Changes, there are simply, no Changes.
And if you would succeed exchanging this simple File, you would be happy.


@ironnails

1.
Google for Ascendancy free Download. A few Sites have that Game, but NOT Abandonia!

2.
Could you delete in your Post that whole ugly Quote, please?


The Upload of my Mod is for all the Ascendancy Fans out there.
I hope to reach many of them, so that they could be happy too.

You keep taking for granted I don't know how to install a game.

I do.

I played your "modded" game. And I didn't see a difference.

Do we need to continue this discussion again? :/

Ok, ok, Dude.

I know the wise Saying: Dont argue with Geniuses, cause they beat you.



But you could generously admit, there WOULD be a Change, obviously,
if an AI Ship shoots at you, with a DisIntegrator? There were big Changes already,
in my Supremacy and Totally Cracy Mod, but what i did now, by the amazing Ideas of Frank Reif,
is to enable almost all Special Weapons as MAIN WEAPONRY shooting at you.

Carbonizer, Brunswik Dissipator, Shield Blaster, DisArmer, DisIntegrator,
all these sweet little Specials are MAIN WEAPONS now, with a Special and Hull Damage!
The AI uses all these cute little Things as Main Weaponry, a lot in all Ships.
I currently work on Version 1.6, and i can say, it is LIGHTYEARS better than i ever hoped,
and worth every Effort, Sir!



And if you are an Ascendancy Fan, PLEASE, give yourself the Pleasure to play that Mod!!!

I didn't see a difference because I play so fast that the AI have no way to react fast enough. If I get enough of the galaxy then it's too late, upgraded AI or not...

There is a real reason why I always said and continue to say that Ascendancy is a strategy game for newcomers to the genre. It is exceedingly easy and there is no difficulty levels...

Play any other strategy game out there, like Civilization, Colonization, SpaceWard Ho!, etc... You'll see what I mean.

I cannot believe.

My Supremacy and Totally Cracy Mod had the so-called SciFactory included.
The former Laboratory, then used for the AI only, as a huge Industry-Boost.
Only that caused, that you CANNOT be "fast enough", it is simply impossible,
playing Ascendancy the Supremacy on highest Difficulty Level, to being faster
than the AI. And caused by the aggressive Diplomacy of that Mod, an unbeatable
Enemy declares War on you... you played the Mod, with changed Solar System Names,
and you were "too fast"... i cannot believe.

Played MoO2, Pax Imperia, Civilization all, Colonization highest Difficulty,
Galactic Civilization II and Space Rangers 2 Revolution are good Advices.

But there ARE Difficulty Levels in Ascendancy! My current Mod 1.5 includes 4.
And, tell me, how would you defeat a Giant Fleet out of 6 Enemy Ships,
full to the damned brim with Brunswiks? I tell you that: Even IF you would
dominate that Game, you would grin like a drunken Idiot, like i do.

Quote:
If I get enough of the galaxy then it's too late, upgraded AI or not...
Yes, i thought that, too. But since the AIs Giant Ships include 4 Brunswiks
Main Weaponry PLUS Brunswiks, Shield Blasters and DisArmers as Specials,
you cannot be sure to stand the next Century, Dude, even if you think,
you are good enough, thats my Experience with ASCENDELYXE 1.5, honestly.



I try to get up to four Difficulty Levels, and a Kind of "total Insanity"...
that you could get already in the 1.5.

Default Problem with Ascendancy Mod

First of all thanks for the Ascendancy Mod.

Secondly the batch file was creating the necessary files OUTSIDE the folder (one directory before ascendancy) and once those were taken and placed inside the ascend folder, then the mod worked.

Thirdly, english is not your native language, and some good work could be done to make things sound much less weird if you would let a native english speaker rename some things (especially the technologies and ship parts).

Only played very briefly so far, but does seem like the computer will finally put up some kind of fight! Cannot wait to get into my first worthy interstellar ascendancy war!

Thanks,
Leonidus

Hi Leonidus!

It is a great Joy to me, that some Ascendancy Fans find their Way to my Mod.

1.
Your Download includes a Sub-Folder Delyxe, the new Ascend.exe, which you
should use ONLY, and NOT the Antag.exe!!! and the BATCH and the README shortcuts.
The BATCH loads out of Sub-Folder Delyxe into one directory higher.
Thats the Cause, you should copy all my Mod Stuff into Main Directory Ascendancy.
The BATCH does nothing but to load one directory higher.
But if you succeeded in exchanging ASCEND00.COB and RESUME.GAM, welcome to my Mod!

2.
You mean the HyperScorpoide Stinger? Or the PsiAgonic DisRaptorizer?
O man! Ascendancy was EVER a kind of a "dizzy" Fantasy SciFi Thing,
with psychedelic Sounds and Graphics, and Names. It is a Wonder that the Logic Factory
did a kind of a SciFi atmospheric Masterpiece, just to make everything wrong all the times later.
I gave such "weired Names", cause half a Year ago, i had only the Notepad++,
and had to rename some Stuff Letter by Letter, and i wanted to give
Ascendancy the Names as usual. For any Help and Hint i am thankful.

3.
Had a Testgame yesterday, playing the Middle Size Galaxy, Seven Empires,
the Chamachies killed me, after a short struggling Battle with some Colonizers,
some new Colonies and a brutal small War versus many small Empires.
Built too less Orbital Shields and Missiles...

-You should know, that Colonizer and Invader are in the Weapons Menu now.

-You should know, NOT TO RESEARCH the Advanced AI Warfare, and NOT TO BUILD the AI War Center.


Have Fun!

Default ASCENDELYXE 1.6 MOD

8.4.2013 DONE-DATE
For all the Dudes out there, loving to play Ascendancy, i tried to accomplish
my ASCEND DELYXE AND HEAVY DELYXE, or ASCENDELYXE 1.6 MOD.
It is hard to get that damned Thing perfect while the Game lacks badly,
but i think its alright now. For all the Dudes out there, getting my MOD to work:



For all the others: .



>You´ll need to download all 7 Packs, and unpack.
These 6 .rars include the ASCEND01.COB and a few GFX Tweaks for better Gaming.

>You´ll find a Folder ´Delyxe´, a BATCH, a README, the ASCEND.EXE
(Patch from 1996) for USE ONLY, (the ANTAG.EXE crashes), and the new ASCEND01.COB.

>Backup your original ASCEND01.COB (but youll never need it anymore).
Then copy and paste the whole Stuff into your Main Directory Ascendancy.

>Load the Batch and choose a Game: DELYXE, with ALL Specials, HEAVY DELYXE,
without 14 deleted Specials, for totally crazy and most heavy AI Ships.

>If the Solar System Names have changed, you play an ASCEND00.COB by me.
If not, please read any Manual to finally succeed in getting that Mod to work. Patience!

>Dont research Advanced AI Warfare, that allows the stupid AI
to build AI War Centers for more Industry, and AI War Engine for more Ship Energy.

>Dont build AI War Centers on your Planets, and AI War Engine
on your Ships, thats for the stupid AI ONLY, to increase the AI Enemies pure Strength.

>Build up Planets with many Shipyards and one Orbital Dock,
to being able to build huge Ships fast enough, to face the AI Industry Plus.

>Look at the Weapons Menu for Colonizer and Invader Moduls.
The most once Super Special Weapons and Colonizer and Invader are Weapons now, firing.



4.8.2013 CHECK-DATE
After a really... hard Game, for Ascendancy, some Minor Tweaks like,
forgot to change 1.5 into 1.6 in the Batch File (), forgot to change
the Shift Info Text for Invader and Colonizer, changed Yr. into Year, o yes,
and made the Super Hard Weapons more expensive in Energy Need,
and made the Ship Building MUCH harder for the Human Player ().

The only Thing missing, is, to perhaps get any Feedback by all those,
succeeded in playing my Mod (), or perhaps all those, NOT succeeded in ().
The Lack of the Game, no Modder could ever beat off, but i think, for a
real Ascendancy Fan, my Mod is WORTH playing. Its a pity, that nobody knows it!
Its better than i hoped before, and a real and really TOUGH BadAss Joy ()!!!

Have Fun!

I think you should really split from this game thread and create your own specific thread in the gaming section.

Which Section do you mean exactly?

Yes, already thought about opening a fresh new Thread, providing my Game.
Actually play a Testgame...
Pure Sadism on Difficulty Level 4, HEAVY DELYXE BRUTAL. A real "Joy".
