Re: New base map

Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to change the map used ingame to show Earth into something brighter, is it possible? Or is map modding limited to ownership and water maps? I've managed to extract the map.e5p but I'm struggling to find the way to recompile the base map. Does somebody have a hint? h...

Re: ICBM on Windows 7

Hi Pip, I have two fatal symbols - when I left click on the first one it says - what program do you want to use to open this file and lists a number of choices. The other fatal symbol when I left click on it gives a list stating INFO:: starting ver. 1.0.1, steam??? That's ok. Could you please send ...

Re: ICBM on Windows 7

Hi Pip, I have just uninstalled everything and started afresh. After downloading and pressing play I get the message - that program is missing a windows component. I then went to the launcher as suggested by eddie and done what he said by right clicking on the icbm.exe then made a desktop shortcut....

Re: S L O W E R please

Perhaps a 1/2 speed setting or mod would be calming amidst the chaos? The lowest game speed is still kRaZyIe to work with. +1 half and quarter speed. Or a slider that goes all the way to Stop. Next patch will give the possibility to mod in slower speeds. Plus I'll make mod that does 1/4 and 1/2

AWACS and ASW Heli's don't RTB on bingo fuel.
Is that a setting issue on my part or a bug?
Any replay available?

Re: Mac support

Wine is this: https://www.winehq.org The quote from GOG page: ICBM also runs perfectly over Wine (Wrapper 2.9.0.6; Engine WS11WineCX64Bit19.0.2) on my Mac (macOS Catalina), if I don't use the Launcher.exe, but the ICBM.exe. Probably you need DRM-free version for it - please ask Slitherine support

Re: ICBM on Windows 7

Does it indicate what component is missing? I believe it is something related to network, as the game tries to access PlayFab

Will ICBM run OK on Widows 7?
Windows 7 is officially not supported, but the game should run mostly OK.

You may expect the problems in the part related to the Multiplayer ladder, especially if you do not use Steam.

Re: ICBM - Goal of the Game?

The nuclear war is inevitable in the game, if you don't start first then some other player will. And your goal depends on the game mode. In one mode your goal do defend as many of your people as possible, in another - do as many kills as possible. But in general your goal is to insure your faction s...

It is not decided yet. The biggest problem is the controls - the game is quite mouse-heavy.

Re: How different is it from DEFCON?

Sure. You have four speed settings + pause. In MP you also can pause or slow down but you are restricted by the "Pause Pool". If you pause or slow down the game this pool starts to drain out. When it is empty, the speed is automatically restored to the average set by the players. When you are at ave...

Re: iPad Version?

I as the developer would say that the biggest problem FOR ME with the mobile ports is the need to completely change the UI/UX that could lead to the changes in the gameplay.

Re: A whole lot of questions.

It is sad that there will not be a peace timer added as an option, since it would have been interesting to give everyone some setup...

Re: A whole lot of questions.

Do you plan on integrating what I call a peace timer and conventional war timer into the game ? The peace timer would be exactly what it advertises, no one can attack someone else (or a non ally's territorial waters) until the time runs out. The conventional war timer would be that nuclear weapons ...

Re: Regarding missile phases.

Very interesting idea, actually. In the game these phases are not reflected perfectly precise to make the gameplay a little simpler. For example, while satellites can shoot down the missiles only when they are high enough in space, AMB in the game can actually intercept the missile at any stage. Thi...

Re: How different is it from DEFCON?

Think DEFCON 2.0. The gameplay is different enough, as it is asymmetrical - you chose your what to research and what to build basing on your knowledge of the opponents. For example, knowing your opponent researches MIRVs, you can invest into stealth aircrafts and laser satellite weapon to destroy hi...
