Re: Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change

It appears we have our first casualty: Based on the in-game player list, the Roman player gave up under the combined onslaught of Macedonia, Carthage and surrounding AI factions and handed the reigns over to the AI.

Re: Not getting email notifications in MP

It turns out only the notification for the MP game starting got flagged as spam for me. I've had missing turn notifications, though. From observation, I suspect the MP server is failing to send notifications for new turns when a turn ends by timing out rather than by all players finishing their turn...

Re: Change notifications about +/- relations to low priority

I've been experiencing this in a multiplayer game so can't currently reproduce it at will, but here's a few screenshots to illustrate the issue. Diplomatic notifications mode, when set to show top, medium, or low priority messages, respectively. Take note of the numbers listed by the messages: Switc...

No MP email notification for new turn when one times out?

I've been playing in the Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change multiplayer game. On turn 16, I didn't receive an email notification for the new turn and after asking, nobody else admitted to having received one either, nor did I receive one for turn 17 (the latest one). I can't say for 100% certain, b...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change

Another turn timed out as of a few hours ago, and again no email notification. Please consider this your reminder. I feel I have enough information to warrant a bug report, so I'll go write one up now.

Re: Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change

If anybody got a notification for turn 16, let me know. If no one got a notification for this specific turn, maybe knowing that would help the developers isolate the cause of the issue. Based on what I saw when I checked before I went to bed the night before the turn ended I think the turn might've ...

Re: Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change

Am I the only one that didn't get an email reminder for the latest turn being ready to play, or did that affect everyone else too? Just in case, there's a new turn if you haven't checked in the last 10 hours.

Change notifications about +/- relations to low priority

Factions' relations improving or worsening due to wars or treaties spams the log and on-map event notifications heavily, but for some reason it's classed as medium importance, the same level as alliance treaties being signed between foreign powers, while factions joining wars is low priority for som...

Log "See only if directly involved" off doesn't show own events

Currently, the "See only if your nation is directly involved" message log option hides event icons in your own realm when it's toggled off. The behavior seems to be identical to having the "See only if not involved" option toggled on, but the fact that that option exists makes it redundant, and it m...

Re: SUGGESTION: Red Bad, Green Good

Besiegers don't gain their bonus when defending against a siege. As regards to the 'Coward' trait, the manual says it gives "-1 movement, -1 on all values in a siege", which seems pretty unambigiously negative.

Re: QUESTION: List of Provincial Units and their Locations?

I recently joined my first multiplayer game of FOGE, the Field of Diplomacy: Winds of Change game, as Aethiopia. We're currently only at turn 4. It will certainly be interesting to see where it goes.

Re: QUESTION: Who would have this General?

It's a new addition in a recent patch. You can find it among the buttons on the top bar of the window that's shown when you have an army selected. When active, if the army enters a hostile region, it will fight any hostile armies present there, but won't seize control of that region even if it wins ...

Re: SUGGESTION: Gaming Mountain Attacks

Most heavy infantry is weaker or at least way less cost-effective than medium infantry in mountains, as they suffer a -2 attack and defense penalty on that terrain (indicated on their unit card). In some circumstances a medium infantry might die where a heavy would survive because they have less hit...

Re: QUESTION: List of Provincial Units and their Locations?

I know of this list, though it only includes the provinces and names, and is partially out of date after the latest patches (the units in the desert provinces of Northwest Africa being switched from camelry to light cavalry is the biggest change, I believe).

Re: QUESTION: Red & Yellow Battle Numbers

Yellow represents damage to efficiency points and red to hitpoints. Units that have efficiency damage suffer a penalty to combat rolls, units that fall to 0 hitpoints are destroyed.

Re: QUESTION: Who would have this General?

0-0 generals still contribute up to +2 to siege rolls (up the number of units with a siege bonus within the army) and enable the army to use the Retaliate order.

Re: Aircraft Carriers

To construct heavy warships, you need a building with level 3 ship building capability, such as a Shipyard. Some factions have additional prerequisites - I think tribals need to hit civilization level III first or something like that? I don't recall the details.

Re: Cavalry during the city assault

Heavy cavalry being stronger than heavy infantry in mountains, forest and swamp also seems a little odd.
