Back to News Listing Field of Glory II Updated to version 1.5.3

Posted: Friday, December 14, 2018 by Daniele Meneghini

Type: News

Spears will clash against shields again, as Field of Glory II has been updated to version 1.5.3.

This new version brings lots of changes, ranging from Gameplay Mechanics (improved push backs), AI (several significant enhancements), Multiplayer (it is now possible to have mirrored MP challenges),  Campaigns (campaign scoring system) and more.

Take a look at the full changelog here:

You can download the update from here:

Last but not least, the vanilla version of the game is not the only thing getting updated. The spectacular TT Mod created by Paul Adaway will soon be updated to a new version. The new version includes many improvements including individual faction banners! Take a look at the screenshots below.

IMPORTANT! Be sure to update the game to version 1.5.3

This version of TT Mod is too large for the in-game download system, but it is very easy to install. Look out for the update notice with download link and installation instructions on the Slitherine forum very soon.

The FoG II ‘TT mod’ is a comprehensive user-created mod for both Field of Glory II and DLCs.

Full details of the original version of Paul Adaway’s 'magnum opus' are given here but the new version includes lots more new or modified army lists. In keeping with its miniatures based inspiration it has 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.

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. Installing TT Mod will not alter the main game in any way, and you will still be able to play the “vanilla” unmodded game whenever you want.

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

WarPlan Dev Diary #2 - Land and Air System

Monday, June 24, 2019

The land system for a wargame is one of the most crucial parts of the game. Land units allow you to control territory which is how you win the game. Nothing generates as much excitement and a healthy level of anxiety than seeing a Russian front stretched from Leningrad to Rostov with both players desperately trying to achieve their goals while feeling they don’t have enough resources just as the weather turns to mud.

I wanted to add flavor to the operational level of WarPlan without overwhelming the players with information or actions. I tried to take what was important and incorporate it as simple decisions for units grouped in as few categories as possible. This way they can make quick decisions without overwhelming procedures. This is also incorporated into the fog of war system which is based on inaccurate and incomplete information instead of being completely blind to what is happening where. Play like a general not a calculator.
