Anno 2070: Island maps

Anno 2070 islands are not randomly generated, there is a set of islands defined in the game's files. They are rotated and placed randomly to create an illusion of randomness, but all Anno 2070 maps share the same islands.

So I reproduced them in Anno Designer.

Making island-wide layouts. I often use building layouts to optimize space usage, but layouts have a major flaw: they are assumed to be rectangles. Their space efficiency is based on their bounding box, but islands are not rectangles. Islands are irregular shapes. Which is why one can't solely rely on building layouts to build efficiently.

Computing optimal island-wide layouts with an algorithm (really looking forward to that one).

Three Body Problem

“The universe is a dark forest. Every civilization is an armed hunter stalking through the trees like a ghost, gently pushing aside branches that block the path and trying to tread without sound. Even breathing is done with care. The hunter has to be careful, because everywhere in the forest are stealthy hunters like him. If he finds other life—another hunter, an angel or a demon, a delicate infant or a tottering old man, a fairy or a demigod—there’s only one thing he can do: open fire and eliminate them. In this forest, hell is other people. An eternal threat that any life that exposes its own existence will be swiftly wiped out. This is the picture of cosmic civilization. It’s the explanation for the Fermi Paradox.”  Liu Cixin, The Dark F…

Ultimate Sector

Welcome to my blog!

This blog is dedicated to my progress of what I consider to be my personal ultimate sector in Anno 2070. I figured I'd share my progress for anyone interested. 

First off, I will tell you something about what kind of player I am. I like to play games like Anno in a relaxed way, not rushing my builds. I almost solely play Continuous games as I don't like to see my progress disappear when I complete mission objectives and 'complete the mission'.

I've already built 3 sectors that were to be my ultimate sectors but every time until now I feel they were flawed (Alpha, Bravo and Charlie sector have thus been cancelled projects). This is another attempt for perfection.

Anno 2205 announced!

Hello ladies and gentlemen! With pleasure do I share with you the announcement of the next installment of our favo(u)rite game series, ANNO 2205!

There isn't really much to share at the moment, mostly because details are still scarce at the moment, yet we do have two beautiful trailers and the prospects of becoming colonists of the moon (probably as a replacement for 2070's underwater journeys).

For now, let me redirect you to the official site and, of course, the newly created Anno 2205 wiki. Please come over there and share your thoughs and knowledge!

Speaking for myself, I couldn't be more excited. Who else will be pre-ordering?

As always, happy editing! See you in 135 years!

Tech Digital Spirits

For a long time the true spirit of science has been held back by the natural limitations of the biological body all  humans possess. Any scientist worthy of the title should and will convert his mere mortal, human brain to the  immortal, unlimited digital spirit, a computer program simulating a human brain with triple the capacity. The  memories and personalities are preserved, but the intelligence has increased by a factor of 27. After the Genius  Maratha Steward developed the digital spirit, there was no stopping the progress of science. Living in  megaclusters, feeding off electrical energy, the digital spirits necessitate constant innovation for satisfaction.  Their entire needs have been redesigned.

If players get on the bad side of these nomads they will either demand the player moves islands or will simply open fire as an act of aggression. There are two nomadic leaders, Zachary D.

The Mega Shipper is the largest mobile storage unit ever constructed. With a cargo capacity of 3600 tons, engineers worldwide claim it is the absolute limit of cargo that can be carried on a single vessel. Any larger and the vessel will either sink or break, depending on how much the volume was increased.

New Unit idea: Falcon Squad

A very fast team of little automated drones. 9 take up one airfield slot. Like the Chopper, they can stop anywhere. They attack aircraft only, but are extremely effective. They seem to have unlikely high hit points at 1,250 for little drones but this is translation for their agile evasions. They also attack at 135 air attack combined, making them not to be underestimated. They do have very small fuel caps so they are empty after 2:30. That is their main drawback. Like the Dragonfly they are best used in sequence, various squads that is.

New Unit Idea: Dragonfly

The Dragonfly is the fastest aircraft in the Anno 2070 universe, only overtaken by the unbelievable Stormchaser. It cannot stop anywhere besides a 3x1 airstrip. It normally flies at Chopper speed, but when ordered to attack a surface/aerial enemy, it speeds up to 95% of the Stormchaser in microseconds. He fires 18 missiles and speeds past the entire fleet. When no enemies are in his range, he slows down to chopper speed and returns to the closest friendly 3x1 airstrip. This because his fuel tank takes a 75% hit. He cannot afford another strike, or he will run out of fuel mid-attack. Refueling and rearming takes 1 minute. The Dragonflies work best in sequence, preventing the enemy from responding and hitting it continuously. 2 Airfields (4 …

New Unit Idea: Marlin

The Marlin is the fastest submarine, at 1.5 times the speed of a Trimaran. It has always-on Silent Running. The Marlin has a special ability, known as the infamous Sprint Jump, where the Marlin sprints up from underwater and hits the ship above with 2,000 damage. The Marlin falls back into the sea, unharmed.

The trick the Marlin performs is a very primitive but none-the-less effective technique: It sprints right through the ship it attacked. The very strong and sharp prow cuts right through any ship it hits. It is mostly used to take down the few strongest ships in an enemy fleet. It can be used to make dealing with the Lion's Mane much easier. The Sprint Jump requires a 15:00 minute cooldown, and it's speed is reduced to just normal Trimar…

The New World Order

OK to summarize, and pulling from real world sources, the NWO or New World Order is a conspiracy by the financial and political elite for the establishment of a one world government under the UN, which in turn would be under their control. They never operate directly, always through intermediaries, the idea is they don't want the throne, but to be the power BEHIND the throne.

Now in terms of the Game, the NWO is behaving much like their real world counterpart and have created the upheaval and dangers that we have encountered thus far, thinking they are separate events but are in fact part of a larger goal, which is keep the world powers fighting.

New Unit idea: Lion's Mane

The most dangerous submarine ever to sail the depths of the world. Weighing in at over 250,000 DWT, she is the largest and most frightening submarine and vehicle in general.

She is capable of carrying 8 slots of airfield on top of it when surfaced, but during combat or underwater procedures the aircraft lift. Underwater, she is also capable of Silent Running. Silent Running is interrupted when the submarine surfaces, the submarine enters combat or the Tsunami Generator has been engaged. The Tsunami Generator simulates a serious accident at a Geothermal Power Plant. The shockwave is equally devastating to a regular Tsunami. It takes 2 minutes of underwater, not Silent Running, preperation, and has a cooldown of 1:00:00.

Licence to Kill (totally revised)

Hi everybody! This is the totally revised version of Anno 2070 - Licence to Kill, the first and easiest of our community DLCs. Of course, Phinn Cyber, his revenge action on Scorpio and the whole sabotage system are back.

Why do I call this one the "first and easiest" one? That's mainly because this one adds several new features without one central theme (or one central super weapon). This one makes the game complete in my eyes and it teaches the player some skills which'll come in useful in the other, more difficult DLCs. Of course, it's up to you which one you play first, but if I speak for myself, I won't play along with Delaren until I've completely mastered the whole sabotage system...

Alright, before I spell everything out, I just inform everyone what it is about. To anyone not wanting to know the most massive spoilers, skip this blog. To those who want, scroll down.

Alright, I think this is far enough ;D

Mjölnir is a very powerful weapon used by the NPC Delaren. It can be unlocked by defeating him on Insane Difficulity, and is built similarly to monuments.

Mechanics: When built, it needs to be charged -- the energy cost for it can be adjusted from the default of 2500 down to 500 or up to 5000, at which it will charge at 15% and 150% speed respectively. While charged, it will take 500 energy. When it is charged it will have 400 maintenance and 750 maintenance when it is charging.

At regular charging speed it will take 10 minutes to recharge after a shot(may be changed for balance). The blasts will do 450 damage to buildings and 300 to vehicles, in addition to stunning the targets. Stunned vehicles are rendered immobile, while buildings react …

These are some of the more relevant posts about Delaren and Mjölnir. I'll condense it all at a later point, and if you want I can answer whatever other questions you have may. Sorry that it's so "unprofessional", btw :3

Hmm... I came up with some stats for the Mjölnir: It has 4000 HP(You may think at it would be easily killed by an airstrike, but it'll be defended with shields). It takes 2500(Can be decreased to 500, but it will charge at 10% speed, and can be increased to 5000 energy cost and will charge at 150% speed.). When it is charged, it will take 500 energy to maintain the charge. It costs 750 in maintenance while charging and 400 when charged. It decreases the ecobalance by 175. It'll be built like the other monuments. The attack d…

My unit idea: Stormchaser

  • 1 General Information
  • 2 Tornado Stopping Ability
  • 3 Speed Explanation
  • 4 Upgrades
    • 4.1 Enlenghtened Laser Time
    • 4.2 Ultra-violet Algae Lighting
    • 4.3 Carbo-Platinum Sails
  • 5 Combat Abilities

The Stormchaser is the fastest vehicle in the entire Anno 2070 universe. It goes faster than a Chopper, Hovercraft or Trimaran . It needs to be this ridiculously fast to chase and stop Tornados and save Oil Rigs. The ship lacks very much in all other areas, but it is extremely helpful, especially in the endgame. The blueprint is bought from Sharon Decipiat in exchange for a massive aerial warfleet(12 Choppers, 8 Hawks, 2 Firebirds). It can be build in both Tycoon and Eco Shipyards.

The Stormchaser stops Tornados using a very new technology Sharon invented. The ship fires smal…

The backstory of Vulcanic activities

To explain the backstory of the characters in Vulcanic Activities, I will have to spoil, so see my Vulcanic Activities blog post first if you want the experience as intended: (BTW this is all known stuff by someone of the main cast before the event.)

  • 1 2013 - 2030
  • 2 2031 - 2050
    • 2.1 Sharon Decipiat
    • 2.2 Keto
    • 2.3 Hector
    • 2.4 Skylar Banes
    • 2.5 F.A.T.H.E.R. (prototype)
    • 2.6 Dr. Devi
    • 2.7 Tilda Jorgensen
  • 3 2051 - 2070
    • 3.1 Sharon Decipiat
    • 3.2 Keto
    • 3.3 Hector
    • 3.4 Skylar Banes
    • 3.5 F.A.T.H.E.R.
    • 3.6 Dr. Devi
    • 3.7 Tilda Jorgensen

These times have not been tracked very well. The basic result was that the ecobalance had almost been destroyed and the population have split up into 3 basic groups: tycoons, craving production and balance, ecos, craving ecobal…

New Unit idea: Floating Fortress

This unit is available through the a.t.m. imaginary NPC Sharon Decipiat's blueprint. It is basically what it's name says: a floating fortress. It can hide 1 Colossus, 1 Container Ship, 1 Atlas (without aircraft), 2 Deep Sea Hunters, 2 vipers, 2 cargo liners, 2 Sisyphus', 2 Trimarans, 2 hovercrafts, 2 shark, 3 freight ships, 3 commando ships, 3 raiders, or a combination of 3 of these: freight ship/commando ship/raider. The ships are hidden below the catamaran and are stealthed, unless spotted by submarines. The catamaran also holds a 2x2 aircraft field on top of itself. These vehicles aren't hidden, though.

The catamaran also has other capabilities. It comes with a continuous kinetic shield (1,250 hp, +50 hp/minute), and has 6(!) item slots.…

Mad achievement skills: 10 seconds achievement

I redeemed my code ten seconds ago, and I have gotten this achievement. This is a record for the history books: 3,491 Geniuses in 10 seconds. And without Geothermal Power Plants. Talk about mad skills.

Yes, I know I am late with the expansion. I was busy perfecting my old saves and finishing all the missions.

Now, seriously. Anyone got ideas how this happened? Was my code used before? Did the geniuses automatically go into my old saves? Has Ubisoft forgot to clean up their servers? Is it a local error?

P.S.: I am not that interested in fixes. I kinda like it. :D
