Re: Future DLC?

I can't think of any reason that Richard would want to 'drop' FoG II - in fact quite the opposite. I'm looking forward to the next DLC and happy for the development team to take as much time as they need. It's a terrific game with excellent development and support IMHO...

You've use it recently, as FoG II expansions are registered there.
Of course, I should have known that... :roll:

Re: Slitherine & Matrix Games get new Websites!

I'm sorry but that's just not so. All of the games were visible/accessible until this system change was made. I haven't changed my ID, and other people seem to be having similar issues.

Re: Slitherine & Matrix Games get new Websites!

Any progress on these issues? I logged in today and found only two games listed under 'My Games' - one I bought recently and one I re-registered recently in order to download a patch. My login/id is the same as it always was, so it looks like the previously held data on the games I own, complete wit...

Re: Slitherine & Matrix Games get new Websites!

I've visited the site for the first time and logged in successfully, but none of the games i own are listed. I had to re-register FoG II in order to download the latest patch.

Re: Field of Glory II 1.5.18 changelog

So, I had to re-register the FoG II base game on the new Slitherine site in order to download this update, as none of the games I own were associated with my login. Have I missed something, or am I seriously going to have to go through this rigmarole for every game I've bought whenever I want to dow...

Re: Message re: unable to maintain logistics, degraded weapons and armour

Greatly increasing the metal production for my state solved the problem... Now happily walloping rebels with my well-equipped armies!

Re: Message re: unable to maintain logistics, degraded weapons and armour

Check the build screen for each unit - you require more than just money to maintain units, depending on what they are. Plus they need food, which is taken out of the region where they are situated, and/or one next to it. Thanks Vakarr. I was keeping an eye on the food supply levels but managed to m...

Message re: unable to maintain logistics, degraded weapons and armour

Is there a single cause, or more than one cause, for this sort of in-game message:

"Macedonia is unable to maintain its logistics and 5 units report degraded weapons and armour"

Any info/tips gratefully recieved!

TIA,

Re: Best garrison troops?

Urban Militia are being looked at for the next patch. Raids are defeated using the sum of defending units combat power (so -- for now -- no unit has a bonus compared to another with same CP) with region defensiveness as a (big) bonus. So adding walls and automated garrisons helps a lot (and cost no...

Re: Best garrison troops?

If you are being raided, cavalry and light horse seem to be best at preventing raids. It doesn't seem to matter how big the defending force, eventually a "huge raid" will occur and the enemy will succeed (even if you have a palisade - need better fortifications as well). However having cavalry of s...

Re: Best garrison troops?

I think the medium infantry siege bonus might be only for offense, not for defense. Out of the universally available frontline units, only Heavy Infantry is better at defending against assaults than Urban Militia and even then, only slightly, so unless there's not enough Urban Militia around, or yo...

Best garrison troops?

Hi folks,
Any ideas about which troops are best as garrison troops? Is it better to use cheap, light infantry rather than more expensive units?
TIA,

Re: Question for Developers - on 'map painting', decadence etc

Speed of growth is important as the decadence produced by a province decreases over time, but you may have to wait ten turns before it is pacified and the extra decadence production is stopped (and the region starts to have a reasonable loyalty level) . Also forming provinces halves the amount of d...
