Empires Apart v2.2.4 Change Log

Post by AlbertoC » Tue Dec 11, 2018 4:05 pm

Emperor's Chest

The Emperor's Chest is now available. It can be purchased from the in-game store or obtained through gameplay.
The Emperor's Chest is an item that contains a set of 4 randomly generated items. Chests can be purchased or obtained for free through gameplay. The main reason we’re going in this direction is because we wanted an easy way to reward player’s loyalty. Essentially, we’re looking to give away plenty of Chests for free going forward.
• An Emperor's Chest contains 4 items, of which one is guaranteed to be Rare or better.
The chances (calculated per-item) are as follows:
• Every player will receive 1 Emperor's Chest when installing the game. Existing players will get it when first logging in into the game.
• Founders will receive 3 additional Emperor's Chests.
• A Emperor's Chest will be gifted to the player for every 1 hour of gameplay, with a limit of 2 every 2 days. We consider this a first step in creating a larger ecosystem where we will have more fun and interesting ways to obtain Chests for free by playing.
• Two Civilization Fragments of any kind can be combined into a Emperor's Chest.
• Chests can be accessed through the Armory.

Civilizations

• It is now possible to unlock Civilizations through gameplay!
• Civilization Fragments can be found inside Chests. Four Fragments of the same Civilization can be combined into a Sigil.
• Sigils are special in-game items that allow you to play a specific Civilization.
• Fragments and Sigils are non-tradable and non-sellable.
Items
• In-game items now have an explicit rarity: Common (Gray), Rare (Blue), Epic (Purple) and Legendary (Gold).
• In-game items are now tradable and sellable on the Steam Marketplace.
• We now allow customization of Villager Tools (Axe, Pickaxe, Hammer, Hoe, Skinning Knife, Bow)
• 18 new Villager Tools items are available.

In-Game Store

• We have a brand new in-game store that makes easier to browse and purchase in-game items.
• We now display which items are contained inside of a Crate.
• The store will be constantly updated with new Items and Sales so make sure to check it out often!

Menu

• Upon logging in we now show the latest Changelog if the user is playing a new version of the game.
• The Changelog can be accessed in-game via a button next to the version number.
• Added a note regarding AI opponents in Multiplayer matches in the Create Lobby popup.

Gameplay

• It is now possible to set a Rally point on a Unit, Fauna or Relic.
• On an Allied unit this will be interpreted as a Guard command.
• We now support Camera Hotkeys.
• You can Save Camera Locations and jump back to them using the function keys.

Pathfinding

• Fixed a Pathfinding issue were units would get stuck in cliffs or other unwalkable terrain.

Stability

• Fixed a possible desync with ungarrison.
King of the Hill
• Players that resigned from King of the Hill are now considered out of the game.
• Players that lose all their villagers and town centers in a King of the Hill match are now considered out of the game.
• If a whole team is out of the game, it is considered defeated in a King of the Hill match.
Bug fixing
• Fixed an issue with Mongol Transport Ship not transforming into a Settler.

Balancing - General Changes

• Every civilization now has a dedicated Scout unit that they start with.
• The Scout is faster than a regular Infantry unit but slower than cavalry and has great LoS. It has a good amount of HP to survive some arrow fire but only deals 2 damage.
• This change is intended to equalize the early game more (especially for Aztecs) and free the Light Cavalry line of most civs to be re-balanced on its own.
• Mangonels and Ballista projectiles no longer track targets.
• Mangonels and Ballista now have a “Attack Location” command. This is intended to keep Siege strong while raising the skill cap. This should make for more interesting high-level gameplay.
• Long Weapon I Bonus damage vs Mounted reduced to 8 (from 10).
• Long Weapon II Bonus damage vs Mounted reduced to 16 (from 18).
• Gold Mines gold amount increased to 800 (from 600).
