Shadow Empire - Oceania DLC is coming out

Post by tebaf3 »

After 2 years since the release, we are glad to announce the new DLC for Shadow Empire

Yesterday during Home of Wargamers Vic, VR Design founder, announced that Oceania, the new DLC for Shadow Empire, is coming soon. It will bring new and great features to the game.

Description:

For a long time the Planet Generation of Shadow Empire was limited to dry Planets and Planets with relatively small bodies of water. Now all is possible. You can create second Earths and even Waterworlds. Planets with many islands, or just a few continents. The new maps being generated with Oceania DLC change the feel and ambiance of the game completely. But it also changes the gameplay a lot and will make you experience a different style of game. 

On top of this: the existing land-based Traders have gotten a more organised cousin with the sea-based Traders, who are known as Maritime Trade Houses (MTHs). The MTHs will allow you to explore the Oceans and secure Transport Contracts to invade and/or keep logistics flowing between different continents or islands. The MTH are of a very mercantile nature and it is also possible to acquire their stock. Once a shareholder you can use Policy Meetings with the MTH to influence their attitudes and Dividend payments. 

Features:
  • With Oceania the Procedural Planet Generation can now generate much more diverse Planets
  • Gaia Planet Class now available
  • Thalassa Planet Class now available
  • Proteus Planet Class now available
  • Fontus Planet Class now available
  • Maritime Trade House (MTH) mechanics
  • MTH Stock-trading, Policy Meetings, Dividends & Auctions
  • MTH Transport, Explore and Makeshift Port Contracts
  • MTH Naval warfare for sea supremacy
  • Naval logistical points allow amphibious invasions and transfers

My dream is Victor leading a huge team with huge funding creating the ultimate 4x, but for now, this is a good step forwards.

Any date on a pre-order?

Very excited and as always continually impressed with the work Vic has done.

I put Vic in the same league as the two brothers that got dwarf fortress to its state today. While I am not a programmer of any sort, I gave it a shot not my thing, I still admire the expertise it takes to craft something with such depth and only growing evermore.

Whatever the cost, I am in.

Errr... I don't know you, but, I do find that statement potentially alarming.

It's fine, it's fine. Not like we'll take his soul or anything. At least, not until The Machine has finished completion...

I am not even sure there is more then 1 Maritime Trade House per planet, that everyone vies for.

No maritime warfare this game iteration. Just allowing separated landmasses is enough work.
