Back to News Listing Space Program Manager is updated to version 1.4.0!

Posted: Tuesday, March 10, 2015 by Daniele Meneghini

Type: News

The big one has finally landed!

A new patch is available for our popular Buzz Aldrin's Space Program Manager, bringing the game to version 1.4.0 with tons of improvements, bug fixes and....tigers. Yes, tigers. Never heard about tigers hired by space agencies?

You'll understand this better in a minute!

The  most relevant changes are:

  • Added an interactive tutorial for the NASA campaign, which covers the basics of the game from agency inception until the execution of the first manned mission.
  • Added the option of hiring 'Tiger Teams' when running a mission inside the Mission Control room. 'Tiger Teams' are groups of paid experts that help Flight Controllers and increase the chances of success when a failure occurs during a mission step.
  • Added a new program: the Luna 17 lunar lander and the Lunokhod 1 lunar rover.
  •  Lots of improvements across the UI: more tooltips, new set of buttons for navigating the various screens inside the Headquarters, made the information related to programs and missions more easily available, replaced the personnel silhouettes with real photos, improved the performance of the personnel management screen, etc.
  • Completely revamped the end screen for the campaign mode: now the game shows a series of relevant stats and grants the player a medal based on its performance. The player can also continue running the agency after the manned Moon landing goal has been achieved.
  • Added a new set of Steam achievements.
  • Various gameplays tweaks and fixes in the game database.

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #8 Legacy

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Winning the Game

In Empires, you are building your nation so that it endures the passage of time, and your achievement is measured through the legacy you’ll leave, even if in the end, your nation is no more.

There are several ways to achieve this goal of being first in Legacy. It’s not just something to be only achieved by conquering part of the map, although that approach remains a possibility, rest assured.

If you take a military approach, then you’ll want to plan your campaigns so that you conquer and hold your objective regions. These regions are set for each nation and represent loosely their historical progress or areas of interest. Some nations will have objectives set in a concentric way, around their capital, so they will expand outward in each direction.

Armored Brigade first Nation Pack is announced! With a free surprise!

The Cold War is cold no more. NATO countries are facing their Warsaw Pact counterparts right in the middle of Europe, furiously fighting to control the Fulda-Gap and close key-locations.

But Germany is not the only European Front where the Soviet High Command is looking to overcome the West resistance.

On the south, a century-old hot border is ready to erupt into fire. Yugoslavia, although not a “Soviet” state, is willing to take advantage of the chaos in which the totality of Western Nations has been embroiled. Their eyes run along the Italian border and the important port of Trieste, the acquisition of which could be of immense value for its economy. The JNA (Yugoslav People's Army) is equipped with hardware of high efficiency and it is not afraid to use it on its old enemy.
