Hi everybody!

Last week, on Monday 1st during the fifth Home of Wargamers, we had the chance to talk a little about the progression with Close Combat: The Blody First. One of the areas of improvements is the visual representation of the unit's status, to help players getting a faster idea on what’s going on the battlefield. Icons in different colors now deliver this kind of information and during the event we showed some of screenshots featuring some of these new icons.

Field of Glory: Empires Tutorials - Battles and Regions

Posted: Tuesday, July 9, 2019 by Daniele Meneghini

Hi everybody!

Only few days from the release of Field of Glory: Empires, time to focus on two important mechanics in the game, introduced and explained by DasTactic.

Battles play a fundamental part in the Empires and learning concepts as frontage, ranged phase, garrison troops will be crucial for success. Without mentioning the integration with FOG2!

Regions are your basic administrative entity. They constitute the foundations and the starting point for many Civilization in Empires. Every ruler worth of this title must be aware of all the potential boosts that a good Regions management could unlock.

WarPlan Dev Diary #3 - Naval System

WarPlan Dev Diary #3 - Naval System

Posted: Monday, July 8, 2019 by Daniele Meneghini

Most naval battles occurred within a very short span of time over long distances. Simulating this on the WarPlan scale of 2 weeks is a difficult task. Consider the map following the Bismarck and the Prince Eugen. This whole engagement took just 1 week from the day the left port to the day the battleship was sunk. It took half the British navy to find her at sea. Another example is the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

The movement and attack on Pearl Harbor took 11 days crossing 140 hexes WarPlan hexes of map distance. The complexities of recreating realistic scenarios are a challenge to say the least.

WarPlan Dev Diary #2 - Land and Air System

WarPlan Dev Diary #2 - Land and Air System

Posted: Monday, June 24, 2019 by Daniele Meneghini

The land system for a wargame is one of the most crucial parts of the game. Land units allow you to control territory which is how you win the game. Nothing generates as much excitement and a healthy level of anxiety than seeing a Russian front stretched from Leningrad to Rostov with both players desperately trying to achieve their goals while feeling they don’t have enough resources just as the weather turns to mud.

I wanted to add flavor to the operational level of WarPlan without overwhelming the players with information or actions. I tried to take what was important and incorporate it as simple decisions for units grouped in as few categories as possible. This way they can make quick decisions without overwhelming procedures. This is also incorporated into the fog of war system which is based on inaccurate and incomplete information instead of being completely blind to what is happening where. Play like a general not a calculator.
