Posted: Monday, November 13, 2017 by Daniele Meneghini

Type: News

Field of Glory II has been updated to version 1.0.2! This is a significant and important update as it adds tons of improvements and changes, among all:

  • You can now review the battlefield at the end of a battle
  • Units that have evaded off map count as half their routed value added to their side’s rout %
  • Close Order Warbands no longer get +1 Cohesion Test modifier for being Heavy Foot.
  • Bows can now shoot over other units if on higher ground

You can download the patch from here

Check the full changelog below


V 1.0.2 Update List

  • You can now review the battlefield at the end of a battle, by clicking the “Review Battlefield” button in the victory/defeat screen.
  • Added End Stalled Game button to MP lobby. This can be used to claim a game as abandoned if your opponent has not moved for 7 days or more in a non-tournament game.
  • Added Download Community Scenarios button to Main Menu, with pulsing glow and text notification when new scenarios have been added since you last played the game.
  • Close Order Warbands no longer get +1 Cohesion Test modifier for being Heavy Foot. We have chosen this instead of changing the size of the units, to maintain the character of the units, but better reflect their historical performance. Further tweaks are in contemplation if needed.
  • Units that have evaded off map count as half their routed value added to their side’s rout % unless they return. Units that pursue routers off map don’t. (Note that pursuers chasing evaders do not follow them off map, unless they catch them and rout them before they leave the map).
  • Stopped Side B from randomly sending flank march in Multiplayer custom battle games.
  • Parthian army list tweaked to allow more cataphracts and infantry.
  • Added some compulsory medium foot javelinmen to Numidian lists.
  • Widened Roman autodeployments – this was previously an issue mainly with Large and Very Large battles.
  • Bows can now shoot over other units if on higher ground.
  • Camelry no longer shoot invisible arrows.
  • Indian forest tribesmen now have their own distinctive textures.
  • Fixed issue of MP games displaying script mismatch warnings when the other player has played his MP turn after playing user content scenarios with modded scripts.
  • Fixed bug that stopped modded units with crossbow from shooting.
  • Impassable river tiles now show as “Impassable to land troops” when moused over. (Previously only showed as impassable if a unit was selected).
  • Added Global Mod functionality. When global mods exist, a button appears in the bottom left corner of the main menu screen – this brings up a list box from which the mod to use can be selected. Only one global mod can be in use at a time. See http://archonwiki.slitherine.com/index.php/Modding. Currently this only allows modded unit textures and squads file, and does not allow modded or new unit models or scripts to be included, so it is of very limited use. We hope to extend its functionality in due course. In the meantime the pre-existing modding system using custom folders will be more useful in most cases as it does allow everything to be modded for that custom module.
  • Manual Clarification: Setting Rain or Snow for a scenario in the Editor gives a -50 POA modifier to all shooting except by javelins.
  • Manual clarification: A unit disordered or severely disordered by terrain loses that disorder as soon as it completely leaves the adverse terrain square. (i.e. the unit is now in an open terrain square.)

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.
