Re: Neverdark has been announced!

Good news. If you have diplomacy as you say, as a bit of advice, make the diplomacy as deep as your resources, time and programming allow. Deep diplomacy add a tremendous amount of depth to a game like this without detracting from core game design philosophy. Imho.

Looks like it has potential. Good job. Some in game footage would be nice.

Frisians

Will the Frisians be a separate army/nation in(what I am assuming is going to be early middle ages)the next DLC? Or will they be lumped together under another people like the Franks/Saxons/Danes? I can't recall who they were lumped with in FOG1, but I remember that they were not a separate entity. W...

Gladatorial Combat

How about a Gladiatorial combat game? There have been many over the years on different platforms, almost all of them duds. Mixed in with the arena aspect of this(and a system that would advance your gladiators skill...if he survived) a Ludus system could be incorporated, giving this game a 'campaign...

Re: Possible Remake?

Hi Kaal979. No, there will never be a remake. Everyone has moved on to FOG2. Cothyso, who was the main guy working on the revamped Fog1(with the Unity engine) has seemed to have gone AWOL, and I can't blame him as no one is paying him to continue development on this game. He was working on it in his...

Re: Impetuosity Check

This is a marmite thing. It was in FOG1 and some people liked it and some people hated it. While it is realistic for this sort of thing to happen occasionally, it isn't realistic for it to happen too often. Taking your example of troops on a hilltop, that would essentially make it impossible for an...

Re: FoG(U) 2018 state update

So it's coming on to nearly 6 months since we last heard from you Cothyso. I and others realize you have a life and another job and that your continued working on this game was provisional. That being said, it would be nice if you would update us on your continued support of this game. Have you give...

Re: Share some unique/strange tactics that you came up with!

Some of these tactics are kind of 'cheesy' though, and ahistorical I feel. The diagonal line conundrum, combined with squares in this game borders on being ridiculous. And the(very commonly used) charging already routed units to gain a further movement bonus is 'gaming the system' in my opinion and ...

Anyone Have Any Success...

...with the Spartacus Slave Revolt army against their Roman foes? If so what did you do specifically to win? I'm finding this army a hard boat to row, and figure unless you have favorable terrain on your side, you're pretty well done. Tips?

Re: Do you prefer light spear cavalry or lancers?

I find Lancers underwhelming in this game. Not at all, as I have read about them in military history books. And if you include Cataphracts under the Lancer moniker then they are doubly underwhelming.

Will There Be Khazars & Pechenegs

So far I have not seen Khazar nor Pecheneg armies represented in this game. Will they be represented in an upcoming DLC? Also as an aside I have not seen the Khazars represented in FOG1(though the Pechenegs were). Is/was this a conscious decision by the developers of both iterations of FOG to exclud...

There are 2 games to complete the semi-final round of my 2018 competition, then the grand final round.

I will set up another tournament, hopefully in March so we can complete it well before Christmas
Great news.

I knew someone would pick Transylvanians.
I've as yet to play them, what's so fascinating about them, other than their leader Vlad being the Halloween yard decorating champion? :wink:

Re: Favorite Army

My favourite is Transylvanians. How come the Transylvanians Richard? I am just a vampire at heart. And I can make the troop combination work, given a reasonable amount of terrain on the map. Beware the Transylvanian forest! (Especially within a 20 mile radius around Castle Dracula). :lol:
