Re: Russia events

Found a couple of small errors in the Polish 1861+ events. In combination this will make the early 1860s very uncomfortable for any Russian player ... Hmm ... and make my service to the Rodina even more difficult ? :bonk: J/K - glad for these improvements you are doing - although I may wait on item...

Re: Heading for a clear bright sun

Re: See how many soldiers in an army...

Good to know - thanks. To me, counters always represented an "elegant", at a glance, interface element. Looking at Fury Software's projects, it seems that they have full Publisher backing to offer both sprites and counters as options. Players love options rather than being forced into narr...

Re: See how many soldiers in an army...

Thanks Tamgesic for bringing this up and Pocus for giving it some consideration. Pocus - considering that options for traditional AGEOD unit stands and this raw unit number function seem to have significant support, are they likely to be seen as core elements for future use / releases from this engi...

Re: See how many soldiers in an army...

+1 on this - coupled with traditional AGEOD classic unit / leader stands as an option.

Add (via paid DLC) some additional minor nations / tribes not covered and some adds to dev / politics and my Steam wallet will be pointed in AGEOD's direction.

Quick PON Survey

Re: Historical Resource Placement?

Right - you need that for the specific Colonial Action - but the mere presence of the unit also has a small chance to discover the resource even if the unit is idle:

Do you believe that the randomization is aligned within any game structures such as Colonial grouping, administrative area or Theater ? Or is it less defined?

Historical Resource Placement?

In considering my next Prospecting missions, I started to wonder if the resource placements have been seen (by players) to be reasonably accurate? For example, when it comes to Petroleum in Russia, doing a bit of study, I see that they now have a very large set of fields in the Samoltor / Nizhnevart...

It's very reasonably priced! On Steam, if you already own FOG II, you can "complete your collection" by adding Empires for $29.99 (which I did, thank you very much!) or list price is $39.99 - quite reasonable! +1 Agree Also got it for 29.99 - thanks for the reasonable price. So far - has ...
