Re: New fork: dcss-spicy

The amount of XP required for level 27 is almost exactly the same as before, since that was used as the calibration point. Levels below 27 are a little easier to achieve, while levels above 27 are harder as a result. I like the idea of mana cost going up with number of summons. It's more complicated...

Re: New fork: dcss-spicy

Yeah as I tried to explain in the README, with no_exp_cap now, it uses a simpler geometric formula for calculating levels past 13, to make it much more difficult to reach ridiculous levels. With the standard formula, it requires the same amount of exp per level past 13. This meant that with 6m exp y...

Re: New fork: dcss-spicy

Maybe the no summon cap costs should be spellpower ^2 /2 (rounded up). So level 4 would cost 8. Level 9 would cost 41. Still pretty heavy, but more manageable. I have no problem bumping lightning spire to a higher level too if that's what you guys think would be better. In circus animals it was one ...
