Hi all! 
There is a new bunch of updates and improvements in this new version, and the list is very huge! In general, the engine has been updated to the latest game logic and UI functionalities common to all AGE engine game. 
 
You can check the changelog below 
 
You can download the patch from the member’s area. 

Gameplay 
  • Naval resupply from special sea zones can be reduced by enemy ships. 
  • Development level reduction done by regional decisions was not working. 
  • Ability sending command points modifier to subordinate stacks had a bug resulting in double modifiers sometime. 
  • Improved ammo distribution algorithm significantly. 
  • Improved retreat logic. 
  • stacks don't retreat from regions not having an offensive posture stack 
  • Leaders will only lose seniority on January 1st and July 1st, this should help for promotion potential. 
  • There is a 25% chance that artillery manages to counter fire enemy artillery instead of firing on a frontline element. 
  • Besieged group can't escape besiegers with evade roll 
  • Evasion is pro-ratised to cohesion 
  • Can now build depots in allied territory 
  • Diplomacy got several bug fixes and consistency additions: 
-  A war with a minor can stop spontaneously after one year if warscore is still low (< 10) 
-  If you are allied with an enemy of another ally DOWing said enemy, you don't DOW it. 
-  Made sure no CB is given if 2 nations are at war. 
-  When giving back regions to its original owner, as part of a peace treaty, you won't lose the VP, NM originally gained from them. 
-  True defensive treaty: Major nation <A> gets a CB against another enemy major nation <B>, if in a defensive treaty with ally major <C> being attacked by <B> 
 
Interface 
  • Shift key can now be used both for lands and waters regions, allows seeing the links between regions. 
  • Losses of ships are now properly logged in the message panel 
  • Experience stats in element panel displayed again 
  • Music sound volume can now be tweaked (yeah!) - need editing a file though: 
- you can alter music volume by adding a value between 20 and 100 in UserInterface.opt inoMusicVolume = 60 // music volume, default is 60 
 
AI 
  • Generic AI significantly improved on most algorithms, thanks to a chirurgical yet powerful modification (expect a +10-15% improved Athena nastiness!) 
  • Dislikes much more to be trapped in cities 
  • AI assaults more frequently besieged structures 
  • Admirals are more often send to secondary’s fleets 
  • AI faster in sending ships in naval special boxes. (to combine with extra ships attributes) 
  • AI will be more vigilant in defending its capital. 
  • AI has been improved on resupplying algorithm 
  • High ranked leaders will be much more reluctant to command small forces. 
  • Idle leaders in enemy land will seek to get back to ‘headquarter region’. 
  • Transports will have a quite low buying priority if the AI is bested in naval power and situation is not great. 
  • AI will get a slightly higher bonus for railroad autorepair (which is based on the development level of the region) 
  • SplitLargeStacks anti doomstack algorithm 
 
Modding 
A log appears in the splash screen while you parse a script. Useful to see where you are in the parsing process. Plus, it looks cool! The periodicity of this log is controlled by sysScriptMemoPeriodicity in system.opt.

The most accurate game on the English Civil War has been just released!

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Without any doubt, the United Kingdom as we know today, couldn’t exist without the conflict known as the “English Civil War”. For 9 long years, from 1642 to 1651 the country saw two major factions fighting each other to the end not just for supremacy, but to build the foundations of the new English Society for centuries to come.

Starting with inconclusive battles and with practically untrained troops, this conflict ended with the establishment of probably one of the best armies England ever had - the New Model Army – and with the initial structure of a Constitutional Monarchy that remains a part of England to this day.

Even though Parliament only achieved final supremacy in the management of government affairs  40 years later during the Glorious Revolution, the seeds of change which ultimately lead to the creation of the English Kingdom similar to its present form, can be directly linked to the battlefields of Edgehill and Marston Moor, as well as many others during the first Civil War.

To End All Wars and Commander: The Great War 50% Discounted!

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

The 1918 Kaiserschlacht (or Spring Offensive) was the last attempt by the German High Command to make a breakthrough in the Western Front.

On the 21st  of March 1918, a series of attacks along the front line held by the British Fifth and Third Army began. Strengthened by divisions coming from the Eastern Front and with an extended use of troops trained in infiltration and assault tactics (Stormtroopers), the Germans were able to achieve the largest territory advance of the war.

However, this all-out offensive didn’t gain a decisive victory. The Germans lost irreplaceable veteran troops and the conquest of the new territories resulted in hard to defend positions with a supply line that was stretched too far.
