New Special: Kraken below the Ice

#1 Post by Sloth » Mon Aug 08, 2016 7:36 am

While making the white Kraken icon for Domesticated Mega-Fauna, i had an idea for a fun little special:

Kraken below the Ice

Description: Deep below the icy crust of this planet lies a white-colored prehistoric ancestor of the Kraken Space Monster.

location: Only on Tundra planets

Stealth: 25 (Needs Active Radar to be found)

Effect: When owning the techs Domesticated Mega-Fauna and Xenoarchaeology, the White Kraken can be ressurected and controlled by building a Xenoresurrection Lab on this planet.

The White Kraken could be about as strong as a Great Kraken, but with a little Stealth (25). Balance testing is needed.

The corresponding PR shows no conflicts (https://github.com/freeorion/freeorion/pull/850). Any objections against trying it out?

Nope, it's probably more an issue of somebody getting around to take at least a brief look at the changes and run some quick basic tests... I'm still a bit swamped, even more so with my autumn break being very close, so I can't do it myself right now. ;)

Yeah, I filed absolutely everything that wasn't going into the Release under "don't even think about this now" and, um, there's quite a bit of it to get through.

It shall happen—if anyone else wants to test any scripting PRs up there and give feedback that would save me time, I like to play through a game or two for each new thing when I can but there might be a bit too many new things to look at (and this particular one does look very very cool).
