TYW 2 under WON engine?

Tue Feb 02, 2016 11:59 pm

Assuming AGEOD gets the kinks out of it, it seems to me that the WON engine, with all its diplomatic and economic features and flexibility, is a potentially great fit for a remake of TYW. It would also allow for an expanded map (although it would be a cut-down version of just the main central europe and surrounding areas).

I am wondering what the thinking is? This seems like a good route eventually, even though patching the original TYW may be OK in the short run.

The WON engine is the same engine as all other games, with some features extra which doesn't mean it can deal with it better. if there is a TYW2 it will be with a whole new engine.

Personally I'd love to see the 7 Year's War done under the WON map...

Well, if the rumors are true about the new Slitherine engine being developed, I hope TYW 2 is one of the first projects teed up. This is a fascinating period, and I also think it lends itself to more players, say 4-6.

Pocus said somewhere that a new engine is being developed with Slitherine that will be the basis of future games. I wasn't able to find the post, maybe others recall.

There is a recent interview on wargamer.com :

James: Rumor has it that you plan to replace the AGE engine. Is this true? If so, what will the replacement be?

AGEOD: More than a rumor, as it was announced in the Home of Wargamers 2015, which is the Slitherine Convention! Indeed, there is a new engine in the making that we are developing in-house with several Slitherine developers located in Canada. It will be a turn based (WEGO) engine that strives to be the best of both worlds, between having modern graphics while keeping the innovative gameplay of Ageod.

But will it be fast? What we came to love in AGEOD games is how detailed the stats can be, but this comes to the speed's expense. I personally treasure complexity and speed much more than graphics, at least for this kind of games. :)

Im not an expert but i suposse that XXIth century programming tools are (with the exception of Cobol :cool :) suposse to make faster code than the ones of XXth century. Pocus has been working with delphi, and doing a great work imo.
