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...

You know guys, Slitherine never made a mystery that the engine can be licensed to a third party team willing to tackle a subject of his choice. :siffle:

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.

That would need editing the models files, freezing their animation. But deciding if we should do that or add a few extra custom content to some nations, I know what I'll choose :eyebrow:

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.

Re: AGEOD Engine 3.x vs 2x ?

There is always the possibility that you get a deal with Slitherine that would open to you all source code. Much better than reverse engineering them, right?

If you are not in, you won't probably be in now, given how advanced the project is. Now, Tamas might think otherwise.

That's sadly something the engine could not do easily at the time we added these missions. It could have been done (and still can be done) by events though, if someone is motivated enough :gardavou:

Re: AGEOD Engine 3.x vs 2x ?

PON is the sole game running in DirectX 9, with a work from an external developer. The PON map has its own thread (this you can see, regions are blurred then get a better definition once you stop scrolling) and there is no hiccup when you zoom. The rest is DirectX8 based (yes that's old). Several ex...

Re: I am excited about resolving crucial battles in Field of Glory 2

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). Often these tactics are just pot shots or random luck things, ...

In any case rest assured that editing a nation color can be done by anyone able to open Excel (or the free equivalent) and changing a value.

The game is standing on its own and is a complete game, so you can do all battles within Empires and you can lay siege too. The battles themselves have some subtleties, we will speak about that in a developer diary by the way.
