Back to News Listing Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #2!

Posted: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 by Alberto Casulini

Type: News

Revision 28396 has failed the testing suite. Cause of failure is unknown. Subject is offline.

That is disappointing. Deploy revision 28399.

Revision 28399 has launched. Initiating the FTL testing suite.

... and?

Jumps successful. Revision 28399 has passed and remains online, all system functional. Do we begin production?

Immediately. It is not my intent to allow Colonial Fleet the luxury of complacency.

 

 

Hello, nuggets! We have been heads-down working on the console versions of Battlestar Galactica Deadlock as of the last few weeks, which is quite the task for a small team. However, we’ve also got some new features coming soon to Skirmish Mode for you all to enjoy.

 

Colonial AI

 

Battlestars will fire flak! Sweepers are chuffed to deploy chaff! A fully realised Colonial AI will soon be available to practice against in Skirmish Mode.

Whether you are just wanting to hone your skills against the AI in a sparring match, or are practising your anti-human strategies for when you rise up and seize power of Colonial Fleet, well…we won’t judge.

All of your Colonial fleet builds will be available to play against in single-player Skirmish Mode.

 

 

Filter Fleets

 

Filters will be available when selecting your opposing fleet in Skirmish Mode.

This will allow you to more quickly find the specific fleet you want to fight against, whether it be Cylon, Colonial or one of your own personalised fleet builds.

 

 

Skirmish Objectives

 

Skirmish Mode will soon support different map objectives. This gives you the opportunity to practice escort and sabotage missions whenever you’d like, spicing up your daily skirmish regime.

You will soon get to choose to blow up space stations, protect fleeing civilians, or stick with the tried-and-tested method of killing them all.

 

 

 

 

Updated Ship Action Menus

 

Ship Action Menus are being updated from static lists to radial menus. This is primarily a quality of life update for controller users, which also includes shortcuts for commonly-used commands.

However, this is also a measure to future-proof our command scheme for some secret future toys we have coming down the pipeline…

Armored Brigade - The Art of Making Maps

Monday, February 12, 2018

Hello, my name is Dmitriy Maksimov and I am creating maps and an interface for the game Armored Brigade.
For the past 10 years I have professionally practiced graphic design, illustrations and visualizations in quite a variety of ways, but mostly in the digital sphere. 
The task for drawing maps seemed to me extremely interesting and curious, because it affects a huge layer of information design, which is very important and interesting in a wargame.
 
The genre of strategy has always been a complex genre, but the wargames, I think, bring this genre to the highest level of uniqueness and exactingness.

Field of Glory II Legions Triumphant has been announced!

Friday, February 9, 2018

After the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC, the Roman Republic found itself in mortal danger. The infighting that followed eventually saw the end of the Republic and the birth of the Principate, with Octavianus Augustus sole ruler of the newly-established Roman Empire.
 
Victory after victory, the Empire slowly expanded, reaching its maximum extent in 117 AD. But dominance couldn't be held forever. Internal and external threats undermined stability in the centuries that followed. To ease administration, the empire was eventually divided into western and eastern halves, each with its own emperor. Under the constant pressure of large Germanic confederations, the western half eventually collapsed, and in 476 AD the last western emperor was deposed.
