Our previous attack calculator wasn't working really well, so, today, we've written a new one. The 'design' of the calculator was done by BasTijs, and the coding by Peck.

Some varying parameters are integrated, so no battle will be fought the same. Sometimes, your army isn't quite as fit as the previous time, and that will influence the battle. If your troops have spotted an attacking enemy before they've reached you, you'll have an advantage, and so on.

Please post all bugs here.

The battel system dose not work,and its very bad.
I attack with 100 gladiators defend with 100 footmna.
Once attacker wins
gladiators 100/88
footman 100/100

Then defender vins
glad 100/100
footman 100/68

Then attacker
glad 100/0 !!!!!!
footman 100/100

if it stays that way there will be no use of the simulator,and the luck factor is much more then 25% as i told.

maybe react normal?

the luck factor is much less, but there is also 50% chance per round who hits first.

I've checked and double checked everything in debug mode, but all seems harmless.
Maybe the atk and def values can use some tweaking.

Yes, I think the attack of units should be much lower compared to the defence. So a gladiator will have to make 3 hits to kill a footman. If the atk of a unit is higher than the defence he will be killed in 1 hit.

I think I found the mistake, but I didnt figure out how to solve it yet.

The current calc works in rounds, so the attacker attacks, then the defender counters the attack. This until one side is dead.

I thought, for example, by giving the pikemen more defence against cavalry it would give the cavalry a weakness to pikemen. That works fine when the pikemen are defending because their defence it high, but they just hit back as normal melee units.

So I have to find a way how to make the counter attack, for units like pikemen who are strong against cavalry deal good damage against horses but not against melee type of untis.

The attack calculator is not yet final, so therefore moved to the ideas/suggestions forum until all problems are fixed.
