Re: New Website Issues

Hi! On Firefox I can see the Slitherine site & forum just fine but I'm having problems with the Matrix side. I've been having frequent "400 Bad Request" errors on the Matrix forum, and just today on the main sales page too. Earlier today the forum seemed fine and I managed a post, but immediately af...

Re: Slitherine acquires the Master of Magic franchise

My expectations are quite low. Than I hear "Slitherine" I think "casualized gaming", and casualizing will kill the MoM. Happy to be wrong in this case. Well, my first Slitherine purchase was CMANO, many years ago: http://www.slitherine.com/products/483/details/Command.Modern.Air.Naval.Operations.Wa...

Re: Slitherine acquires the Master of Magic franchise

Oh Good! I'd love to see a version which has updated graphics but otherwise identical to the original. OK... as well as an up-to-date adaptation. Suggest new game allows such a choice.

Re: Unwanted Regions

If you see an enemy stack building up across the border it seems it should be wiser to cross the border, destroy it and return, rather than wait for it to invade and ravage a region first. The current decadence penalty reverses this reasoning - surely this can't be right?

Re: Guns, Germs and Steel

I was fascinated by that book and I agree it would make a good basis for a game. However, that would most likely be a 4X game which takes a population from clan to empire over aeons of history, rather than a Grand Strategy game like FoGE that concentrates on a distinct period of history - a snapshot...

but if it look like this, you will need manually calculate ALL bonuses and modifiers, especially if you upgrade building
Maybe use a different visual cue to show totals and components, such as:

Estimated changes:
Food: 5
Money: 5 (including 5 bonus from Tar)

Re: Anyone having fun?

Maybe it would be useful to have a building ledger that lists what is being built in each region, with regions grouped by province and provinces color coded or separated in some obvious way, so you can see at a glance what is being built, and verify that you’re build something in every province. Th...

Re: Anyone having fun?

I never use the province interface, so maybe it's the problem. I want to go to every region and decide what they build. You say it's better to have all regions but 1 remain idle and use all the infrastructure pool to flash-build a building and then move to the next one. That means you'd want to see...

Re: Decadence is ruining this game for me...

I really like the decadence system, but I agree it's quite a learning curve. As others attest, I do OK if I don't expand too quickly, manage my slaves judiciously and build copious culture buildings. One of the early priorities is to build slave markets, especially in the capital, as that's importan...

Re: The Incredible Shrinking Farmers

This happens whenever there are only slaves in a region, it will never grow again. Yep, that's it - I've just encountered this again. I suggest that's a bug - during any population shrinkage, the last citizen should be preserved. Or else there should be some sort of population transfer mechanic.

Re: Features/QoL requests

The problem with VP as they are usually implemented is they work off the status ante bellum. You should consider peace treaty based on where you are now, not where you were at the beginning of the war. Say A is at war with B. A took a province next to B's capital. B is losing war and sues for peace...

This is interesting - anybody know of any historical precedent where a senior partner ended a war when it vassalised a nation?
