« on: 30 March 2008, 19:13:40 »
Update: The megapack V4 is the last available version for original glest!
Its continued in megaglest now and its part of it.

So if you want newer versions go here: https://forum.megaglest.org/index.php?topic=4930.0


Megapack V4  is released!

Download at:
http://www.titusgames.de

update: I got too may questions from windows users latly which are not able to install this.   8) 8)
Here is a simple step by step instruction how to install it:

1. install glest 3.2.2
2. install 7zip from www.7zip.org
3. download the megapack file megapack_v4.7z
4. open megapack_v4.7z with 7zip
5. in seven 7zip navigate into megapack_v4->glest->
6. there should be 4 directories: maps,scenarios,techs,tilesets    mark them all.
7. click on "-"-Button ( extract )
8. In new window click on "..."-Button and navigate to your glest installation directory (something like "C:\Programme\Glest_3.2.2\" for example)
9. click on "OK" and wait

Thats it .....

----------------------

The megapack includes three new factions for glest.
It introduces the north american indians, the norsemen and a persian faction
to the glest world.
With this mod three complete new faction can now fight with the techs and the magics.
Additionally there are new tilesets, maps and scenarios in it.
I hope you all have fun with it! ( give me your feedback!! )

Ok, if noone else is willing to give feedback, I will do it :)

For me It's all fun to play, but in the end of the game there are two little problems:
- the valkyries armor is too strong now ( after the upgrade )
- the crossbow attack is a little bit too strong and must be lowered a bit

I think you forgot the spearman berzerker in the Norsemen faction.

And the "crossbow" (which I think should be ballista)should be longer ranged. It should be like 1 1/2 more range than the archer, or something. Because it uses a TON more force on it.

And the arrow upgrade needs an arrow in the icon. The defence tower has one you could use.

Perhaps you could make the Ancient Greeks? They had some cool military stuff. (Hoplites and all that)

Thanks for the great mod tit. I played a bunch of 2 vs 2 singleplayer games using the mod and nothing in the norseman faction seems out of balance.

Hey Titi, could you brea the pack up? On dialup, 140MB is about   hours. Can you break it into 20M at the pace I'm downloading, I'm looking at 2 non-stop days!!!

Can you also make sure that it contains only necessary files (ie: don't include the full glest game in it) and try to use 7z (the best file compressor for computer) to compress it.

Thanks!

NO 7zip!!! NEVER EVER!

but if you want to download it in parts you should use a downloadmanager.
You can stop whenever you want and continue download later.

A very powerful utility is the commandline based wget.
This is what I use in linux but its available for windows too.

ive tried 7z and it is about 10 to 15 percent bigger files then plan old zip files plus it isn't widly used so not everyone can unzip it. Try using all zip it is a free program it does a great job at zip plus it does surport 7z but if you try compressing the same file using both ways you will soo zip files are tighter I also have the 7z program and have tested it with all zip and again all zip using zip file is tighter than 7z

Thats odd, I tested 7zip on my documents folder. I ended up with a 350MB folder becoming 245MB and when I tested it with pictures and videos, it worked fine (or seemed too) I've also tested it with g3d models and xmls and stuff and had no troubles. Occassionally, I saw it make files larger (though its rare) but aside from that, I've seen no troubles. Care to explain why theres a taboo on it?

Oh, and I'll try the download mananger.

one it isn't widely used as a compression two not all zip programs will unzip them. Aa you have said it can and i find offten do make files bigger and if the point is to save space on a download or backup files then 7z is not the way to go

I downloaded it now using the free download manager (on dial-up too) it took me over 13 hours (did it overnight) and it looks great. Now for Nirhilian or whatever... gee, only 5 mor hours left at this pace! (lol) :lol:  :lol: BTW, if 7z makes it bigger, then don't use it. Also, according to FileHippo.com, its more popular in downloads than WinZip or WinRAR. Lastly, make it a self extracting exe (choose sfx in the menu)

Thanks, it's always good to hear that people like it!
Did you test my new tileset "evergreen" too?

( creating .exe files is really a bad idea because lots of us use linux!! )

It looks fantastic Titi, but as usual, I got wasted by the indians [using norsemen], but that's natural when you play a totally new faction for the first time. (Dang Thors died to the archers and fire archers before they could even reach them, friggin' slowpoke!) but aside from those paltry troubles, the faction looks great. The tileset is rather nice, but I liked the jungle one slightly more. Although the evergreen is better than the forest tileset (I prefer the evergeens over normal trees, it looks more canadian! WOO :O )

I just played this mod again for the first time in ages (well a couple of months). This is probly the best mod pack available for Glest! It's nicely balanced and has cool Dark Dragons. As someone who mods Glest I can see that lots of time and effort has gone into this.  :D

Titi, why does exe not do good with Linux? I've never actually seen a Linux computer (not sure if they make 'em in Canada) or even used one. I heard some people say something bout case sensitivity. Do they mean  
something.G3D will not work but something.g3d will? (File extension)

And don't worry, my mod's gonna come out in a Zip file, though I am using 7zip to create it since it boasts the ultra compression format. By having only an attack and a few die sounds per unit.

The factions are both really unbalenced with magic and tech.  Somehow you need to make them weaker, and the hole valcyrie upgrade is rediculous.
