I'm back! And I have questions!

A couple years ago I started a H5 TotE map, and asked a bunch of questions here. I gave up on it about a year ago, and I've decided to start working on it again. And now I've forgotten everything I've learned. Where do I access all of the messages I wrote for events? I thought it was in the map prop...

I didn't read much of the argument. I just have a couple things to say. @ Asheera, sorry, didn't know you were a girl. One pretty much assumes anyone online is male... @ JJ, I agree it is rather superficial. It is nonetheless useful. It's an estimate of the strength of a unit, trying to simplify the...

No, his math is legit, I checked it. He obviously knows his stuff. I didn't check each creature, but his formula is legit.

I know it's not hard - I'm an engineering major doing multivariable calculus right now. It's just that it wouldn't have occurred to most people.

And while it's not difficult, it is tedious...

You have waaaaaaaayyyy too much time on your hands. Although this is a nice analysis for the n00bs... I essentially do this in my head every time I start a new game, and then after awhile, I remember which upgrades I like.

What's your background in math?
