Hi all!

As promised we are releasing the 1.0.17 update today. It is quite a big patch, containing (among other things) a much enhanced AI and new difficulty levels!

We are also releasing an option for you to download and install player-made scenarios directly from the game! Right now we have five new scenarios available for free – they were made during the editor contest we ran some time ago. Try them, they are amazing! We are looking forward to setting up a system for all of you to send us your scenarios, so be on the lookout for that. We hope to have plenty of extra scenarios available in the near future! And as an extra, Agrippa Maxentius will be playing Rippa's Ruse, one of the new maps, tomorrow, live on our Twitch channel at 3 pm UTC! Don't miss the (Ag)Rippa's Ruse! 

You can download the update from the Members Area.

Field of Glory 2 Developers Diary - A.I.

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

The AI for Field of Glory II has been developed by building on the knowledge gained from developing the generally praised AI for Pike and Shot and Sengoku Jidai.
 
Deployment
For non-preset scenarios, it is important that the AI can deploy its army in a sensible formation, taking account of the prevailing terrain.
Generally speaking, most ancient armies would deploy with an infantry centre in one or more lines. (Usually three for Romans, usually only one for Hellenistic armies). They would then have cavalry on both wings and perhaps in reserve, plus light troops both in the centre and on the wings.

Gettysburg: The Tide Turns is out!

Thursday, July 13, 2017

The Battle of Gettysburg, fought between the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia, is considered by many the turning point of the American Civil War.

Lasted three days, from July 1st to July 3rd, 1863, the battle saw many epic and tragic moments, culminating in the famous Pickett's Charge, the desperate frontal assault of the confederates against the unionist defensive lines at Cemetery Ridge.

Today, Shenandoah and Slitherine are very proud to release Gettysburg: The Tide Turns, the brilliant hex-based wargame that will make you relive all the hard tactical choices the Confederates and the Unionists had to take during these long and crucial days of fierce fighting.
