Re: Population growth over time

I'm not sure that the pop in the game should be considered "total population" for a province. I think it actually represents, "surplus population that can work cool stuff." E.g. the absolute population may not grow a ton, but surplus food means that some of the population was survival farming / hunt...

Re: Game Playability

There is simply no way to balance FOGE so that tier 3 nations will have similar starting opportunities to the tier 1s without creating a completely ahistorical game. I think that's a good summary of the situation... But I'm not closing door here to another aspect mentioned. Even if third rate natio...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Update 1.04 Preview

Wow, great and exciting stuff. Can't wait (especially for that capitol-moving bug fix which has paused by current Arverni game!). One question: will the way in which military buildings not located in a provincial capitol contribute be changed? Or will it at least be more clear which values are still...

I’m no expert in modding at all, I haven’t had the time to really play with mods yet, but : There should be a way to mod safely the game without these inconveniences. A sort of mod folder, and a mod manager in game to select the required mod or the normal vanilla game.
There is a way to do that.

Re: The Emperors new RV

There was also a bug that caused your capitol to migrate sometimes on capturing a rival's capitol. Pocus confirmed and fixed this for the next patch.

I got your save Sage, from Support. Thanks a lot, as I fixed the issue, your capital remained in Olina while you took Cantabria. The next patch (just a few more weeks) will have the fix :D
Awesome, thank you.

Re: Main Capitol moving a lot -- working as intended?

I would definitively would like to get the saved game. Of the turn before the actual move, not after it happened :D That's the reason why we generate automated backup though, to help with these situations.

Re: Experience enhancing military buildings

I believe it's more restrictive then that. Right now, only the buildings in the capitol region of the province (where the troops appear) actually count. I think the dev's have said they're looking at improving this.

Re: SUGGESTION: Changes To Victory Conditions

Personally I'd also like to see a non-deterministic element - this could be something like a chance the battle will end when victory conditions are met (but then, if they are "unmet" before the end of battle fires, the battle can keep going -- think a wavering army). I like the ideas above in genera...

Too Easy for Routing Units to "Squeeze" out

Routing units can squeeze out of some pretty silly cases, including through front lines. I think that either, 1) They should be quite limited (perhaps not being able squeeze through diagnonals) or 2) Or when routing and adjacent to enemy troops, they should suffer significant casualty hits. This is ...

Re: FOGE : diplomacy overhaul and upgrade

Lots of good ideas above. There are two related mechanisms that I've thought about, that might also be nice to see: - Client / Patron states receive some benefit from objectives held by their counterpart. This is turn might be reflected in easier diplomacy to get someone to agree to become a client ...

Re: Production user interface

It was a conscious design decision to move away from deterministic build queue, as done since Civ I. We know that this is a feature that most of you like or at least have no problem with, and a few despise. I guess that's the price to pay for moving away from the canon of the genre. There are benef...

Re: Main Capitol moving a lot -- working as intended?

nothing to go on, no region information, no save etc, if the developer needs or wants more, or even to comment, the save would be helpful for a reply http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=560&t=92667 That makes sense if they think this is a bug, but it may be working as intended (capitol ...

Re: Getting Started

What is the relationship between the *.xlsx files in Data\Database\Empires_DB.zip and the CSV files? The xslx files are easy to read and change, but appear to have no game effect. Are they intended to be "saved as" to the .CSV files in order to be used? There's some additional weirdness here. The CS...

Main Capitol moving a lot -- working as intended?

Post 1.03, my main capitol appears to be moving a lot. Is this working as intended? It doesn't appear to be moving to the region with the greatest culture. Not clear to me why it's moving. Most recently, I captured an enemy's capitol, and it moved there, even while the region was still under pacific...

Related to that, we are checking though for a solution to former allies (now neutral) still saying in your territory.
Same mechanic should be used on enemies when their armies are "stuck" in your territory after peace is declared.

Great game, but I feel like I'm missing some nuances here. Would love to know what I'm missing... In my current game as the Aerverni, I'm on turn 44. I've been able to keep my again token gain under 10%, but I've had 11 tokens applied (so like ~25%). Are there other factors in play than the % that c...
