In Empires, as in the previous AGEOD games, you can do a round trip by pressing CTRL while you describe your path.

Re: Good Luck1

You just have to tell us, if you like it. Then with words of mouth, it can be a great hit!

Don't hesitate to speak of it in the others forum, this is how it works nowadays.

Re: Best game from you guys until now - congrats!

Dogpiling should be toned a bit in the incoming first patch. So it should lead to fewer wars.
The main problem with Rome comes from being a large empire, you'll see!

Re: New game, already (same?) old engine?

And just to point out, that's a new engine with all gameplay and AI reconstructed from zero. The rendering/display is done in Archon, the in-house Slitherine engine.

Took us 3 years full time to rebuild this 'new AGE' ...

Re: Best game from you guys until now - congrats!

Or a kind of option to relinquish an owned territory? A bit like what the Roman did in Albion. But it would be rare. More often than not, you took and overextended then coped with that.

Re: New game, already (same?) old engine?

About the price difference, I have been told that it has nothing to do with Slitherine but comes from weird conversion ratios on the selling site(s)

Re: Can not install the game!!

Seems to be more a Windows trouble than something specific to Empires. So in this case, explain your problem by email to support@slitherine.co.uk

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Re: Field of Glory: Empires out on July 11th

That will be a fairly regular price. Not a discounted/cheap title, but not a 60$+ one either. Expect a very common price tag.

Well, Orcs (Orks!) are nice in Gladius. I like very much the smell of their crisp skin burning in the morning (I like to play Space Marine, only for the lore).

Re: FOG:E Multiplayer(!)

Yes the server is not hosting the turn, just passing the files around.

I'll need to confirm, but I'm 90% sure that if everybody has the same exact files (including a new script/event) then it should be fine.

ah yes. And it has been proofread! Sorry for the typo, that's hard to not have some in a manual of such length.

Add the 'than' then.

And in great parts you can thank Loki who was in charge of the manual and distilled months of beta testing into it.

Re: New Engine

Nobody reads in the future :)

First, Empires need to be a decent success, at the very least. Once that is done (hopefully) then we have no 'prohibited subject', so among others, yes, a game set in the Victorian era is always a possibility!
