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…

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #9 'Evasive Action'

Monday, August 13, 2018

It’s quieter than you’d think. Even in the middle of the worst furball.

“Open racks and engage.”

No one else does what we do, out here in the quiet. One single pressure lock between life and a violent, cold, improbable death.

“Thrusters nominal. RCS is green. I'm good to go.”

Look at those big motherfrakkers. Debris means nothing to them. That armor could take a hundred salvos of heavy ordnance. Frak, on a bad day they’ll spill their tea after taking a nuke on the chin.

“Turkey right four lower three. I'm committing.”

In our world, one stray slug is all it takes.

“Tin can on my tail, take it down take it down!”

The difference between hearing your name whispered one more time, or never again.

“Krypter, krypter, krypter! I’m winged! Krypter, krypt--“

Monday, August 13, 2018

A new Advanced Tactics Gold scenario has been released and it is awesome!

Claus E. Fussel (Ernieschwitz) and company have, after years of design, released the 1.00 version of the completely revamped GD’38 mod. Kudos!

It is the ultimate Play-by-Email global ww2 scenario. A planet-spanning and wrapping map of 400 hexes wide, hundreds and hundreds of different troop types, officers, research, diplomatic options and special historical cards.

Aggressors Dev Diary #8 - Trade Routes

Friday, August 10, 2018

One of the things which was pretty difficult to implement in Aggressors was the way the game handles resources.

Initially, the number and types of resources were hardcoded in the game's core and the only thing which could be changed (or modded) was the amount required for certain actions.

Field of Glory II Rise of Persia New DLC is coming! Dont miss the Twitch Preview!

Wednesday, August 8, 2018

"The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold, / And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold;

And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea, / When the blue wave rolls nightly on deep Galilee." – Lord Byron

Ashurbanipal, Nebuchadnezzar II, Cyrus II ... these great kings are now covered with the dust of time, but the empires they created and the wars they fought shaped the Middle East irreversibly.

Here, in the cradle of civilization, the Assyrians ruled with an iron fist, until the Medes and Babylonians rose against them and ended their reign of terror. The Babylonians then repeated the cruelties of the Assyrians, razing the Temple of Jerusalem and deporting the Hebrews to Babylon.

Aggressors Dev Diary #7 - Customization

Tuesday, August 7, 2018

I have always loved to tweak games, looking for ways to change the look or even the rules and create something new. That is why modding and flexibility were a priority for Aggressors. We already covered modding in one of the previous diaries together with the experience of one of our testers, so we shall focus on flexibility.

Hand in hand with flexibility goes the degree of customization.
