Type: News

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.

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #6 - Culture and Decadence

Monday, March 18, 2019

One key feature in Empires is how it deals with the progress and decline of nations. This impacts how your empire will evolve in a major way and is a focal point for gameplay.

Practically, these mechanics first act as a limit on simply conquering as fast as possible as it is hard to assimilate your new gains without increasing your decadence. Thus your quickly acquired Empire might be impressive but will probably prove to be ephemeral. The new territories will be unruly, and in turn this can cause large issues for your government and ruler. However, decadence is not just a problem for the over-ambitious conqueror, it will affect almost every nation over time, no matter how grand, making long term stability a real challenge. Once you pass into relative decline, citizen loyalty will drop, civil wars and revolts will become more common making the risk of major collapse very real.

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #5 Governments and Rulers

Monday, March 11, 2019

Hi and welcome to the 5th developer diary for Empires, our upcoming grand strategy game set in the Ancient Era.

Governments come and go, but nations stay. Well not always, these too can disappear in Empires, although we will only brush lightly on this subject today, as it will be the topic on our 6th diary when we turn our attention to culture and decadence!

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #4 - Commerce and Trading

Tuesday, March 5, 2019

Welcome to the fourth installment of the Empires dev diaries. This week, we will talk about trading and commerce, and how buildings are very important in relation to this.

As you might remember from our previous diary on buildings, they provide a lot of opportunities and benefits. But many will need trading goods to work to their full capacity. They will still function even if the trading good is not available, but you’ll pay a hefty sum each turn, to simulate the convoluted ways by which you manage to get a trickle of the precious trade good. For some buildings, this is sometimes worthwhile as they might be instrumental in how you have setup your empire, but in other cases you will be better to disable or destroy the building.

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #3 - Buildings

Monday, February 25, 2019

One of the pillars of Empires is how regions, the basic geographical unit are handled. Regions are at the heart of the game and managing them properly will make or undo whole nations.

We have already mentioned that regions have a population, split into different ‘population units’ and the buildings constructed in the region. Today we will speak of buildings, as they are every bit as important as the citizens and slaves of your regions, if not more even!

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #2 - Region Management, Population, Loyalty

Monday, February 18, 2019

During the next few weeks, we will aim to show how you manage a country in Field of Glory: Empires.  So let’s get stuck in!

The map of FoG Empires is divided into Regions. Although as your realm grows you will be able to organise these into Provinces, Regions are where the game “happens” – your armies move from Region to Region, and your population, buildings, and trade are all linked to individual Regions

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #1 - A Brief Overview

Wednesday, February 6, 2019

Welcome to the first Field of Glory: Empires developer diary! We felt we ought to start off with a summary of what the game is, and what you can expect. We will be following on with detailed explanations in subsequent diaries.

FoG: Empires is a strategy game set in the Ancient World roughly from the fall of Alexander the Great’s empire. It seeks to provide strategic empire management together with the AGEOD staple of turn-based play and historical detail.  We believe we have unique features to deliver these, while also remaining familiar and easy to understand for the fans of the genre.

Speaking of the features themselves, we certainly have plenty of them in Empires, closely interconnected with one another as it should be in a grand strategy game.
