You shouldnt be going out there!

Who else will?” Sam turned on her sister. She needed to re-cage this anger, and made a conscious effort to unclench her bloodied fist. Tell me who else can go out and do what I do.

Helena didnt meet her sisters glare. Who else will go back to Tauron and look after Zach?

Thats low, Helena.

Whatever it takes to stop you from running this frakking suicide mission. No one else believes the Cylons can even go out that far.

Do you trust your own data?” Helena looked up with an expression as if shed been slapped. You cant put this on me.

Sam slammed her hands once again on the table. Look me in the eye and tell me you got it wrong. Do the Cylons have a staging ground out there? Do you trust your data?

Yes.” Helena replied quietly. That was all the evidence the Praetor needed. Sam turned and left, smashed glass crunching underfoot. Words wouldnt do either of them any good now.

 

Welcome!

It’s been a while since the launch of The Broken Alliance and the Endurance update, and we wanted to stay a huge thanks to everyone who has bought and played the game recently. Seeing an influx of new players is very motivating to us as developers, and we are really excited to be able to continue to working on improvements and new features for the game.

After each update, we always look at the feedback and requests, and use that information to inform what changes and improvements to work on next. We are already hard at work on a new update.

The theme for the next update is increasing replayability. Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is a game of space battles at its core, and we’ll never move away from that as a focal point. We are looking at ways to make the random encounters, resource missions and skirmish modes more varied and interesting. Our aim is to make each battle be have a unique twist, so that no two battles are ever quite the same.

We’ll share more details about how we will do this as we progress through development.

 

 

AI

We are also making some improvements to the tactics used by the AI. From talking with players and checking some of the autocam footage that has been posted online, we’ve seen a number of tactics develop. We hope that creating possible counters for the AI will increase the challenge and interest for veteran players. The Cylons will evolve. They have a plan. Until next time, keep your Vipers in the air, and the Cylons out of your kill slot!

On August 2, 1990, Iraq’s ground forces invaded and occupied Kuwait. 40% of the world’s oil production, and the developed world’s economy, was placed in imminent threat by Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. In response, the United States promptly assembled an international coalition to attack and expel Iraqi forces out of Kuwait, and to eliminate Hussein’s capability to repeat such an act in the future. What followed would forever transform the face of war.

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #6 - Culture and Decadence

Monday, March 18, 2019

One key feature in Empires is how it deals with the progress and decline of nations. This impacts how your empire will evolve in a major way and is a focal point for gameplay.

Practically, these mechanics first act as a limit on simply conquering as fast as possible as it is hard to assimilate your new gains without increasing your decadence. Thus your quickly acquired Empire might be impressive but will probably prove to be ephemeral. The new territories will be unruly, and in turn this can cause large issues for your government and ruler. However, decadence is not just a problem for the over-ambitious conqueror, it will affect almost every nation over time, no matter how grand, making long term stability a real challenge. Once you pass into relative decline, citizen loyalty will drop, civil wars and revolts will become more common making the risk of major collapse very real.
