Release notes. 1.0.9

- 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

> 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)

- 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.

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

> Articles of Colonization (achievement not updating when resuming a save file)
> Fixed all progress achievements on steam not updating properly
- Fixed Bug: Screen resolution issue with 4:3 screens (scaled by width if below 16:9 aspect ratio, and shifted back camera for 3D UI in war room for lower aspect ratios)
- Fixed Bug: Cancelling a squadron launch command will remove all launch squadron command icons for the mothership
- FIX: Disabled the sending of any UI navigation events while in MouseAndKeyboard mode.
- Fixed Bug: gamepad prompts in battle scene didn't have support for Russian characters
- Fixed firewall boost not working when raptors were docked
- Fixed bug where raptors stayed docked with targets after a move command was given (the docked icon remained, while the raptor squadron flew away)
- Fixed bug where subsystem strength was used for quadrant colours in repair subsystems panel, instead of subsystem health

Empires Apart Dev Diary - The goal of the game

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

In our previous dev diaries we focused on the different available game modes, as well as the design behind the UI. Today we are going to cover a number of different subjects, but all have something in common: why we decided to make Empires Apart.

It’s no secret that we drew heavy inspiration from games that marked our childhood: Age of Empires, Empire Earth, and others. We wanted to bring back that feeling, the familiar atmosphere of games we loved, but also add our own touch, as well as modernize the formula, bring it to 2018’s standards. Empires Apart is, basically, the game we wanted to play.


Desert War Mechanicics .Shock Explained

Tuesday, March 13, 2018


“Everyone was talking and chatting, when slowly came into sight the first tank I ever saw.  Not a monster but a very graceful machine with beautiful lines….  Here was the missing tool of penetration, the answer to the dominance on the battlefield of small-arms fire.”—J.F.C. Fuller

Matrix Games/Slitherine’s upcoming release of Brian Kelly’s Desert War 1940-42 uses a simple game mechanic often found in WWII board games.  It gives tank units a “special place” in the player’s toolbox—a positive shift to the combat force ratio if attacking, and the opposite when defending.  Coming up short of attack factors?  No problem!  Throw in some tanks.  A 1 to 1 attack can become a 2 to 1, 3 to 1, 4 to 1, etc.  In Desert War 1940
