Posted: Monday, April 4, 2005 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

Additional Fixes Based On Player Feedback Matrix Games and 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are very excited to release the final 2.41 update for Uncommon Valor, which updates the 2.30 and 2.40 versions with additional fixes based on player feedback.

The changes in Uncommon Valor since 2.30 include ten bug fixes and four new features, some of each are based on the updated War in the Pacific design.  Fixes include tweaks to targeting airfields, coast watcher spotting, coastal defense effectiveness and some play-by-e-mail synchronization issues.  Patrol craft and minefields were both adjusted to emulate the routines used in War in the Pacific while two other changes make groups of submarines easier to spot and stop subs from following units into known minefields.  The patch is available from the Matrix Games website at www.matrixgames.com.

Uncommon Valor features campaign scenarios in the South Pacific during 1942 and 1943.  With incredible detail and accuracy and near infinite micro-management Uncommon Valor is one of the most robust strategy games produced by 2 By 3 Games.  Uncommon Valor also features an editor for units and scenarios for endless replay against an intelligent AI or against other live opponents via PBEM.

On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 p.m. Eastern Time, people across the Earth listened the words of NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong: "That's one small step for man . . . one giant leap for mankind". These now famous words marked the Apollo 11 mission as one of the most crucial enterprise for modern human history. 

For the first time, human beings walked across the surface of the silent companion of our Planet and the hearts of millions of people watching the event vibrated with an emotion impossible to describe.

Aggressors Dev Diary #6 - Combat (part 1)

Friday, July 20, 2018

One thing I have never liked about 4X strategy games is the missing tactics. I never really understood why. Why cannot a game combine both – strategy and tactics? After all, quite a few generals became emperors!

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #1 - Artificial Intelligence

Monday, July 16, 2018

The Armored Brigade artificial intelligence (AI) is fully dynamic, which means that it can handle any scenario within the game parameters, without a need for any scripting from the scenario designer. This approach has been the basic foundation of the game. I've always found the procedurally generated game content fascinating, and that can be seen in the design philosophy of Armored Brigade.

In Armored Brigade, there's an undefined number of maps, units, environmental conditions, and so on. The system must build a readable representation, process the input and then produce output that creates a credible impression of intelligence that behaves in a realistic, unpredictable and challenging manner. That's quite a challenge indeed. A "chess AI", where you have a finite number of possible states, is out of the question.
