Back to News Listing Field of Glory II Tabletop Mod - AVAILABLE NOW!

Posted: Monday, January 8, 2018 by Daniele Meneghini

Type: News

The player’s base of Field of Glory II has proved to be very creative and willing since the release of the game, and numerous mods have been created over time expanding the original content tremendously.

Today we are proud to announce that the Community Content list will be enriched soon with another promising work of love, the “Tabletop Mod”!

The FoG II 'TT mod' is a comprehensive user-created mod for both Field of Glory II and Immortal Fire (but Immortal Fire is not required).

Its creator Paul Adaway gives full details here but his 'magnum opus' includes approx. 80 new or modified army lists and in keeping with its miniatures based inspiration many new unit figures e.g. nearly all nations have their own specific pike phalanx, amended Greek cavalry, a plethora of new Spanish infantry units and one of my favourites – the Tarantine Light Javelin Horse. In all there are upwards of 140 new or modified unit textures in this mod!

For those of you would like to try this mod but are unsure about its impact on the game, rest assured that Paul has not amended the gameplay, rules or unit capabilities in anyway – its focus is on giving players a wider range of armies to choose from and units to play with

Special thanks are of course due to Paul for putting this together and then making it freely available.

We'd also like to extend special thanks to Stephen Hales (of Little Big Men Studios) for allowing the use of his miniatures shield designs in this mod. Those of you who would like to use his designs with your miniature armies should check out his website

IMPORTANT! Be sure to update the game to version 1.1.7 in order to play it properly. 

You can download the mod directly from the game, clicking on the “Download community scenarios” button in the upper left side of the Main Menu, Epic Battles or Campaigns screen. There are three modules to download: campaigns, SP custom battles and MP custom battles. To play it, you must select “TT Mod Campaigns” in the Campaigns screen or change the custom battle module to “TT Mod Custom Battles” in the SP or MP Custom Battles screen.

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #1 - Artificial Intelligence

Monday, July 16, 2018

The Armored Brigade artificial intelligence (AI) is fully dynamic, which means that it can handle any scenario within the game parameters, without a need for any scripting from the scenario designer. This approach has been the basic foundation of the game. I've always found the procedurally generated game content fascinating, and that can be seen in the design philosophy of Armored Brigade.

In Armored Brigade, there's an undefined number of maps, units, environmental conditions, and so on. The system must build a readable representation, process the input and then produce output that creates a credible impression of intelligence that behaves in a realistic, unpredictable and challenging manner. That's quite a challenge indeed. A "chess AI", where you have a finite number of possible states, is out of the question.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Orks units preview

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

Heavily-muscled, aggressive, eight-foot-tall fungal thugs with a love of warfare, the Orks were a spacefaring peril long before the human Imperium entered the galactic scene. Spread evenly across the galaxy, for the most part they are an irritant to any other inhabitants, like lazy, belligerent neighbours. But occasionally, as a swarm of locusts, the scattered tribes and clans form into a Waaagh! – something between a crusade and a riot – and devastate entire sectors until they run out of things to fight and fall instead into internecine warfare.

Aggressors Dev Diary 5 - Home Politics

Friday, July 6, 2018

Throughout human history it has been expected that those accepted as leaders or emperors would be responsible for bringing the country wealth, prestige and prosperity.

I have always felt that country management has been quite underrated in many other strategy games. The reason is simple, micro- and macro-management can be quite tedious, repetitive and in a way ruining the “fun”.
But sidelining country management has, in my opinion, also provided less realistic experiences. We accepted the challenge and came up with a few new game concepts that on one hand keep the economic, military, social and cultural decisions in the hands of the player whilst, on the other hand, complementing the robust and logical game mechanics. All whilst bringing in surprising elements that deepen immersion. Country management should be mostly automated and decisions should be either made actively by the player or he should be alerted in special circumstances to reduce the boring and monotonous tasks.
