Back to News Listing Field of Glory II Updated to version 1.0.2

Posted: Monday, November 13, 2017 by Daniele Meneghini

Type: News

Field of Glory II has been updated to version 1.0.2! This is a significant and important update as it adds tons of improvements and changes, among all:

  • You can now review the battlefield at the end of a battle
  • Units that have evaded off map count as half their routed value added to their side’s rout %
  • Close Order Warbands no longer get +1 Cohesion Test modifier for being Heavy Foot.
  • Bows can now shoot over other units if on higher ground

You can download the patch from here

Check the full changelog below


V 1.0.2 Update List

  • You can now review the battlefield at the end of a battle, by clicking the “Review Battlefield” button in the victory/defeat screen.
  • Added End Stalled Game button to MP lobby. This can be used to claim a game as abandoned if your opponent has not moved for 7 days or more in a non-tournament game.
  • Added Download Community Scenarios button to Main Menu, with pulsing glow and text notification when new scenarios have been added since you last played the game.
  • Close Order Warbands no longer get +1 Cohesion Test modifier for being Heavy Foot. We have chosen this instead of changing the size of the units, to maintain the character of the units, but better reflect their historical performance. Further tweaks are in contemplation if needed.
  • Units that have evaded off map count as half their routed value added to their side’s rout % unless they return. Units that pursue routers off map don’t. (Note that pursuers chasing evaders do not follow them off map, unless they catch them and rout them before they leave the map).
  • Stopped Side B from randomly sending flank march in Multiplayer custom battle games.
  • Parthian army list tweaked to allow more cataphracts and infantry.
  • Added some compulsory medium foot javelinmen to Numidian lists.
  • Widened Roman autodeployments – this was previously an issue mainly with Large and Very Large battles.
  • Bows can now shoot over other units if on higher ground.
  • Camelry no longer shoot invisible arrows.
  • Indian forest tribesmen now have their own distinctive textures.
  • Fixed issue of MP games displaying script mismatch warnings when the other player has played his MP turn after playing user content scenarios with modded scripts.
  • Fixed bug that stopped modded units with crossbow from shooting.
  • Impassable river tiles now show as “Impassable to land troops” when moused over. (Previously only showed as impassable if a unit was selected).
  • Added Global Mod functionality. When global mods exist, a button appears in the bottom left corner of the main menu screen – this brings up a list box from which the mod to use can be selected. Only one global mod can be in use at a time. See http://archonwiki.slitherine.com/index.php/Modding. Currently this only allows modded unit textures and squads file, and does not allow modded or new unit models or scripts to be included, so it is of very limited use. We hope to extend its functionality in due course. In the meantime the pre-existing modding system using custom folders will be more useful in most cases as it does allow everything to be modded for that custom module.
  • Manual Clarification: Setting Rain or Snow for a scenario in the Editor gives a -50 POA modifier to all shooting except by javelins.
  • Manual clarification: A unit disordered or severely disordered by terrain loses that disorder as soon as it completely leaves the adverse terrain square. (i.e. the unit is now in an open terrain square.)

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--“

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.
