Back to News Listing War in the West Update 1.01.68

Posted: Wednesday, October 4, 2017 by Ciro Acanfora

Type: News

Hello everyone!
Today we are releasing the latest version of War in the West and Operation Torch. It's the first post-Steam release official update and resolves all significant issues reported to us since that time, as well as making some notable improvements to historical balance.

You can find the whole changelog HERE, while you can download the update from our Members' Area or directly from HERE!
A little preview:
 

  •  New Features and Rule Changes
    - Improved game performance (logistics and map draw).
    - Air base unit will be created once expansion starts. Size 0 air base appears in black color
    as size 1. Size 0 air bases should not be visible in air transfer mode (no AC on them).
    - Adjusted ground replacement routine to reduce substitution probability (more so for
    outdated equipment).
  • Bug Fixes
    - When assigning support units to a location, any support units in a HQ that are in the hex
    are not available to be assigned. Units in the same hex as the location should be able to be
    assigned to the location. Fixed.
    - Fixed air group display bug on air navigation panel (F10).
    - Ground elements which are not in the TOE or substitution list can get replaced into the
    unit. Fixed.
  • Data and Scenario Changes
    - Aircraft change - 0642 Lancaster B.I Special - add some 4000lb bomb loadouts for earlier
    use, limit 12000lb bomb use to 5/44 and later. A few other minor changes.
    - Device change - 0683 NEW: French 75mm CA Mle 1932 AA Gun (moved from 0561)
    - Many changes to scenarios. The most notable of these is the addition of many new frozen
    static divisions to the German forces in the campaign games. These divisions will use up
    some of the German manpower for training early in the scenarios, and then be activated
    as they were historically.

There you are guys. We hope you enjoy our new update and keep having fun with the game!

Field of Glory 2 Allies Feature Explained

Monday, May 20, 2019

By popular demand, Update 1.5.12 adds a major new feature to the game – Allies.

It is now possible to choose to have allies from a different army list in SP and MP custom battle armies. The main army list provides the majority of the troops available for selection, the allies provide a smaller proportion.

The permitted allies for each list are based on known historical alliances. Hence some army lists can have as many as 12 possible allies, others may have none. Altogether, well over 400 allies are currently specified, which, together with the 281 single nation army lists, makes a total of more than 700 pure or mixed army lists in the game. This in turn means that, including “what if” games, the number of possible matchups is now over 500,000! And that is before unit selection.
