Back to News Listing Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #4 - Wear & Tear

“There’s an approach to bay C by an unidentified vessel.”

Jacob didn’t even look up from his paperwork. He had to find room for twenty new inmates by tomorrow. No matter how many fingers of whiskey he downed, the numbers would just not line up for him. “It’ll be the supply run. Pass it through.”

“But the distribution agent isn’t due for another few hours--”

“I said pass it through! I swear you newbies are the reason I drink before breakfast.”

There was a pause before the gate officer spoke again. “I suppose I should wave through those centurions coming down the gangway as well, then?”

Jacob looked up at that, and slowly raised his hands above his head. “That... is not the shipment I was expecting.”

 

Attention, nuggets! It’s been a busy time of year, and we’ve been heads down working on the next set of updates for BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Deadlock. Although there’s not a lot we can share right now, we’ve managed to sneak some previews past the Admiral to share.

 

Damage Visualisation

A long-time request has been for visual damage to show on the ships throughout the course of combat. We’re currently experimenting with systems that show the wear and tear that ships take while under fire.

 

 

No longer will your battlestar be as pristine as it once was, debarking from the Daidalos gantry, all shiny and new with nary a scratch.

 

Expanding SIGINT and Blueprints

After the success of introducing SIGINT directly to the CIC of the Daidalos, we’re looking to further expand the flow of information to commanders.

We’ve heard plenty of feedback regarding the lack of information present at the point of blueprint purchase. We will be looking at updating this screen to better inform players what their decisions are during the R&D process.

Additionally, we’re looking at options to further expand the usefulness of the SIGINT Advisory. The more data we can provide to the player about their board state, the better their decision making can be.

 

Bugfixes and Updates

As always, we’re on the hunt for bugs, and updating any niggly user experience issues we come across.

Many carrier commanders will be happy to note that default squadron groups will soon be optional, and available in the Options menu.

We’re also stomping on the bug that awarded players DUPLICATE Galacticas after a certain story mission - yes, we all love the big bird, but you just can’t have two of them!

We’ll have more news for you as we get closer to patch date. In the meantime, keep the toasters hungry, and your ships in the air. So say we all!

Aggressors Dev Diary #9 - Infrastructure

Friday, August 17, 2018

We have already covered most of the main game mechanics and features yet there is still one big question we want to discuss today. How to build up your empire and what to do in time of peace in Aggressors?
 
It might seem that antiquity was all about wars and conflicts, but people of those times mostly wanted to live in peace and prosperity like anyone else. Emperors might have had great ambitions and pushed the boundaries of their empires still further but at the same time they had to maintain and improve the state infrastructure to keep ahead of other nations.

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--“

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.
