Re: Battle system: FOG2 or AGEod?

This second aspect more or less takes inspiration from the AGE games, so you'll be at ease. As for the battle, thanks for the praise Ajarnlance! The aim was to provide a system that could be automated, while having some decent subtleties. There will be a dev diary on the battle system, but in a nuts...

Re: The Recipe Thread

I don't know about English cuisine. I used to mock you (common you) by speaking of mint jelly and boiled beef. And I thought you moved to edible food. And then the 19 years son of my ladyfriend went to a family for a month in the UK. The jelly was not mint flavored, but translucent white. The meat, ...

Re: How old are you guys ?

At 41 you are DEFINITIVELY NOT TOO OLD for video games, what is this nonsense!! What will you do when you retire?? No, video games are the future for all old people!

Don't forget to do some sport each week though. Your body is your capital, don't waste it.

Re: is there anybody outthere....

The younger you are, the more 'fast paced' you like all activities.

The young like 'battle royales', with blitz matches of 5-15 mn (overwatch and such). The slightly older will prefer a RTS-action game, like company of heroes. And there is us, with turn based :laugh:

They can have bad traits, but leaders for now don't develop new traits from their field experience.

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

There are civil wars, based on regional loyalty (slaves and citizens revolts or uprising of a subdued nation) and a special mechanism for Rome based on size. We don't have loyalty for generals as of now (perhaps in the future?) so there is no betraying general seceding, but this is simulated with th...

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

Well if the usurper manages to take back all your regions (while others nations can also attack you) then yes, you would lose. But that's not different from losing from regular wars, except you can't make peace with an usurper.

I guess someone can replace the 3D models you dislike with 3D counters, but shown 'flat'. It is all in 3D these days, even flat 2D games are using 3D engines. That's the way Microsoft did DirectX.

NO YES ;) We don't plan for now to allow changing how the army is deployed in the battlefield, when you do your battles in Empires (and we like our system, it is definitively not a placeholder, it stands on its own with nice game rules).
