Well, I have one screenshot to post today.

Finishing the logic for this command has been a little harder than I thought that it would be. But I will post this here and *try* to post some new screenshots before next weekend.




I have this and the "demand recognition" logic to fully implement and then I can start programming the nuts and bolts of the multiplayer capability.

Thank you for the update.


Of course!

I wasn't able to post anything this weekend, but I should be able to before next weekend. After that, I hope to post somewhat less frequently. Maybe monthly. Lately I think that I have given everyone maybe too much trivia and minutiae.

Here is the screenshot that I promised to post "before" the weekend.

This is the revised Leader Dialog with the leader attributes that I have added. The icon for "Health" (Valetudo) is probably going to be replaced when I figure out something better. It doesn't really fit, even though I think it's somewhat amusing.




The attributes are pretty straight forward when you click on a panel and read the explanation. "Aetas" really just means "Age" and will list the leader's age and family information.

"Opprobrium" means how much hatred among the "better classes" a leader has managed to stir up. In this case Aurelian has a fairly high starting value because of his reputation as a harsh disciplinarian and because of some opposition in the Senate.

Just found out this little gem and now I can’t wait to play it. Hopefully we will soon get more info about a potential release date. I wish you good luck with the development of the game.

Here is a small progress update and screenshot. I am finishing some game play features before I start with the multiplayer features.

This screenshot shows notifications of a chain of events roughly as follows: Aurelian invaded Italy and defeated Quintillus, who managed to retreat to a fortress with a small number of survivors. Aurelian then used the "Demand Surrender" pop-up menu item and the fortress capitulated. Afterwards, Quintillus's troops in two operational theaters changed their allegiance to Aurelian. (Other theaters will be tested as the news propagates).




Pannonia is mentioned here because I currently have Legio XIV Gemina in Carnuntum as a hold-out that accepted Quintillus's elevation by the Senate. That may be bogus, so the final scenario may be a little different from this.

Quintillus's forces probably didn't actually fight Aurelian's army, but that is a wrinkle for future development. Probably the AI will try to retreat before battle, with Aquileia being a good choice because it's a major city.
