The quest for liberty just got a whole lot better with some AI improvements and tweaks in this latest updates

Matrix Games and Hussar Games (www.huszargames.hu) are proud to announce that they have completed and released a new update for For Liberty! This latest update file will bring fans of the turn-based American Revolutionary War title several tweaks and a variety of AI improvements in tactical battles, especially withdrawal logic.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said "We're happy to continue to support the For Liberty! community with more updates and improvements to this addicting game. Matrix Games and Hussar Games are both committed to providing players with the best possible gaming experience through updates and improvements."

 

For Liberty! is a turn based strategy game covering the American Revolutionary War from 1775 - 1783 and the Hungarian Rakoczi Independence War - the eastern theater of the War of Spanish Succession from 1703 to 1711. Giving the player unprecedented options of command and control, players are able to take part in as much or as little of the fighting as they desire. A large variety of units can be ordered to attack, recon, retreat, train, rest, pillage, siege enemy forts, fortify important locations, and more.

 

Furthermore, players are also charged with logistical concerns like paying and supplying their troops and maintaining morale. Political decisions and foreign aid are simulated by an influence system that players can use to change the strategic situation. Ultimately, For Liberty! provides a great mix between realism, historical accuracy, and playability.  This combination gives wargamers and history buffs just the right amount of everything necessary to make For Liberty! a great gaming experience.

 

This update is comprehensive and will bring the game up to version 1.80.

Field of Glory 2 Developers Diary - A.I.

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

The AI for Field of Glory II has been developed by building on the knowledge gained from developing the generally praised AI for Pike and Shot and Sengoku Jidai.
 
Deployment
For non-preset scenarios, it is important that the AI can deploy its army in a sensible formation, taking account of the prevailing terrain.
Generally speaking, most ancient armies would deploy with an infantry centre in one or more lines. (Usually three for Romans, usually only one for Hellenistic armies). They would then have cavalry on both wings and perhaps in reserve, plus light troops both in the centre and on the wings.

The Battle of Gettysburg, fought between the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia, is considered by many the turning point of the American Civil War.
