Re: Help needed

Yes, that is what I mean. I have found, and heard from others, that if you keep playing without quitting the game every couple turns, the game resolution slows down. Nothing else in options. Your pc may have some additional options. I do like monthly turns, but not everyone does. so just to be clea...

Re: Help needed

Nice comment about the time scale, I love monthly turns. In the options menu, the best thing you can do is allocate all the memory you can to running the game. If you are playing against AI, which I infer you are doing, close out the game every two or three turns. When you reopen the game the memor...

Hi guys. I own all Ageod games and they work genneraly very well on my laptop. Yet WON is just soooo slow.... every turn. What can i do to make it work faster? To make turn resolution happen bit faster? Should i change something in settings? ( btw - one week turns - a sweet thing but that experience...

Re: Regions and provinces

Yes, I understand the intent. I think Paradox did that with 2 levels of granularity. That would require an extensive rework of the code and interface though. I know. And i guess most of the modern audience looks rather for GrandStrategy and Tactical Mix that Empires provide then for Grand Strategy+...

Regions and provinces

I am really enjoying Empires game. I like trade, economy and diplomacy. I really think Ageod did a breakthrough here. I was thinking how can this be transferred to operational level games – such as CWII or WON. I really like idea of grouping regions in to provinces. I wonder if for future Napoleonic...

Re: So - How's the New Diplomacy ?

Hi

I would say that Empires diplomacy is best of all Ageod games.

Not perfect but working good. Cant wait to see it transfered to some XVIII centuries reality :)

Re: Rise of Prussia, Revolution under Siege and Civil War nostalgia and engine question

One additional thought. Maybe, first game to transfer from old resources in to new engine is AJE. As this is ancient tranfering tactical battles would go along Empires way. And Economy and trade could be transferred from Empires as well. Say – having more less a regular AJE game with montly turns an...

Re: Rise of Prussia, Revolution under Siege and Civil War nostalgia and engine question

I think Field of Glory is a beautiful game. The way trade is solved is pretty innovative and I think it can be applied in a very beneficial way to XVI – XIX century reality. The same goes for managing State, administration and political system. All of those are surprisingly good. Yet the game is gra...

Rise of Prussia, Revolution under Siege and Civil War nostalgia and engine question

I recently played again Rise of Prussia and realized once again how great this game is. The same goes for RUS or CWII. These are brilliant operational/strategic level games with great political and history twists. I love map scales – they give sense of space and they allow to recreate pre-industrial...

It seems that yet again Ageod is making more accurate and better historical game - where running a country is not only about gettin as much soldiers as fast to one location but rather ballancing few things. The very big question is how fun would be single game ( as AI in previuos Ageod games was str...

Re: New engine in XVII/XVIII/XIX century games

my understanding is the engine can be used to produce tactical games such as FoG2, somewhat ahistoric 4x (Empires) and scripted constrained games - say a rework of Rise of Prussia. So yes, its feasible that it can be used to replace the classic AGEOD games. Its a system that allows tactical, single...

New engine in XVII/XVIII/XIX century games

I am really impressed with the way that Field of Empires looks like. From what i read in Dev Diaries it seems that is going to be one of the best games to simulate economy and politics in gaming. Really happy for that. I was wondering what would be coming next ( obviously not soon because there will...

How is AI doing?

I was wondering how is computer performing as an enemy in beta tests?
One of the biggest flaws of AGEOD engine was lack of strong computer enemy - which seriously limited fun for single players.
I wonder if the new engine not only made the game run faster and smoother but as well be more challenging

Re: strategic/operational/tactical level

Empires does have more strategic and (slightly more) tactical focus than older Ageod games, and consequently there are slightly less options to micro-manage operational detail. However, often this simply switches the decision-points elsewhere. For example, we don't deal with the construction of sup...
