Release notes. 1.0.9

Changes
-------

- Ship damage segment overhaul & visualisation system.
> Mouse over the segment name in the Ship Info panel and the corresponding segment will be highlighted on the ship. Segments are also highlighted in the Repairs screen. 
> Damage calculations have been updated so that projectiles hitting a ship match the visualisation.

- Added ability to rename Officers, once recruited

- Changed fighter AI logic when selecting targets to bias towards other fighter squadrons, especially ones that are targeting them

- Added a multiplayer slow down and no fly zone, called the Operational Zone, to reduce griefing :(
> Updated "Refinery" and "Dark Nebula" to include more environmental elements to support the Operational Zone boundaries

- Cylon Fleets now have greater variation of fleets at every stage of the game, including smaller fleets during mid- & late-game so that inexperience commanders have a greater change of survival

- Made the ship projections a shade of yellow color if they are moved during the current turn (when not selected)

- Made squadrons slightly avoid other squadrons so they don't overlap, making it easier to see and select fighters during combat

- Added 'TAB' key as a non-remappable standalone only button to select the next ship (in the battle scene)

- Added a back button/prompt to the pre-practice panels in multiplayer after selecting the map and fleet points. This hides the multiplayer tab buttons. Esc key will now also go back when in the pre practice panels.

- Minor subsystem position reassignments across some ships

- Post battle screen adjustments:
> By default, the ship that did the most damage is selected in the post battle panel
> Added the opponent/ally in the post battle screen for multiplayer games
> Added a time and date to the bottom left for multiplayer games
> Added an Enemy Ships Destroyed stat
> Fixed Bug: Damage dealt isn't tracked if versing the same faction in multiplayer

- Various minor UI improvements for gamepad users:
> Added 'Y' for battle functions menu gamepad prompt to battle scene
> Added the subsystem being repaired to the repairing 3D label
> Made the subsystem health bar flash white in the ship info panel if it was being repaired
> Added a repair icon animation next to the ship info panel subsystem if it was being repaired (only on gamepad)
> The gamepad left stick direction is now used to select ship action menu buttons
> Added some acceleration to the Dpad when positioning a ship in the battle scene

- Prevented a recorded replay from being cancelled before it was setup properly

- Prevented issue whereby double-clicking the record autocam button resulted in start recording being called twice

- Refactored all tutorials when using a gamepad

- Pressing Enter now confirms missile targeting, focus fire, posture, repairing, hacking and cylon system processes.

Space Program Manager celebrates the 49th anniversary of the Moon Landing with a discount!

On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 p.m. Eastern Time, people across the Earth listened the words of NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong: "That's one small step for man . . . one giant leap for mankind". These now famous words marked the Apollo 11 mission as one of the most crucial enterprise for modern human history. 

For the first time, human beings walked across the surface of the silent companion of our Planet and the hearts of millions of people watching the event vibrated with an emotion impossible to describe.

Aggressors Dev Diary #6 - Combat (part 1)

Friday, July 20, 2018

One thing I have never liked about 4X strategy games is the missing tactics. I never really understood why. Why cannot a game combine both – strategy and tactics? After all, quite a few generals became emperors!

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #1 - Artificial Intelligence

Monday, July 16, 2018

The Armored Brigade artificial intelligence (AI) is fully dynamic, which means that it can handle any scenario within the game parameters, without a need for any scripting from the scenario designer. This approach has been the basic foundation of the game. I've always found the procedurally generated game content fascinating, and that can be seen in the design philosophy of Armored Brigade.

In Armored Brigade, there's an undefined number of maps, units, environmental conditions, and so on. The system must build a readable representation, process the input and then produce output that creates a credible impression of intelligence that behaves in a realistic, unpredictable and challenging manner. That's quite a challenge indeed. A "chess AI", where you have a finite number of possible states, is out of the question.
