You shouldnt be going out there!

Who else will?” Sam turned on her sister. She needed to re-cage this anger, and made a conscious effort to unclench her bloodied fist. Tell me who else can go out and do what I do.

Helena didnt meet her sisters glare. Who else will go back to Tauron and look after Zach?

Thats low, Helena.

Whatever it takes to stop you from running this frakking suicide mission. No one else believes the Cylons can even go out that far.

Do you trust your own data?” Helena looked up with an expression as if shed been slapped. You cant put this on me.

Sam slammed her hands once again on the table. Look me in the eye and tell me you got it wrong. Do the Cylons have a staging ground out there? Do you trust your data?

Yes.” Helena replied quietly. That was all the evidence the Praetor needed. Sam turned and left, smashed glass crunching underfoot. Words wouldnt do either of them any good now.

 

Welcome!

It’s been a while since the launch of The Broken Alliance and the Endurance update, and we wanted to stay a huge thanks to everyone who has bought and played the game recently. Seeing an influx of new players is very motivating to us as developers, and we are really excited to be able to continue to working on improvements and new features for the game.

After each update, we always look at the feedback and requests, and use that information to inform what changes and improvements to work on next. We are already hard at work on a new update.

The theme for the next update is increasing replayability. Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is a game of space battles at its core, and we’ll never move away from that as a focal point. We are looking at ways to make the random encounters, resource missions and skirmish modes more varied and interesting. Our aim is to make each battle be have a unique twist, so that no two battles are ever quite the same.

We’ll share more details about how we will do this as we progress through development.

 

 

AI

We are also making some improvements to the tactics used by the AI. From talking with players and checking some of the autocam footage that has been posted online, we’ve seen a number of tactics develop. We hope that creating possible counters for the AI will increase the challenge and interest for veteran players. The Cylons will evolve. They have a plan. Until next time, keep your Vipers in the air, and the Cylons out of your kill slot!

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!

"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.
