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    outdated equipment).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!

Aggressors Testers Diary - Modding

Friday, June 15, 2018

As a young player I was always browsing game files trying to find a way to change them. It was partially curiosity and partially a wish to modify the rules to my own liking, because no matter how great a game is, there is always something you want to tweak or adjust.

The option of modding was part of the game design from the very beginning as I wanted to give the players the opportunity to create the Aggressors realm with me in an easy and user-friendly way. Over time, the idea was brought even further – I decided to create a framework for strategy games of different worlds and historical eras.

Tigers on the Hunt second DLC announced! Welcome to Normandy!

Monday, June 11, 2018

June, 1944. Europe has been under the Nazi heel for 4 long years. Even if the Eastern Front is crumbling and the Red Army counterattacks are in full swing, the German Armed Forces are still a formidable opponent and are making very costly every inch of ground conquered.

Only a breach into the Festung Europa and the creation of a second front could ensure the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.

Aggressors Dev Diary 3 - Diplomacy

Friday, June 8, 2018

Diplomacy makes strategy games feel alive. No matter how many barbarian hordes invade your borders nor how cunning their attacks are, without a leader who you can talk with to negotiate a potential ceasefire the enemy simply does not feel real.

We wanted to make Aggressors feel realistic, so we tried to bring some "life" into diplomacy. Interactions with an AI cannot replace the nuances of a communication between two human players, but if you give the AI a number of tools that it can use whilst following its own goals then the interaction suddenly feels much more real.
