Posted: Tuesday, November 28, 2017 by Daniele Meneghini

Type: News

The first tournament for Mare Nostrvm is here! 16 brave captains and sailors are requested for this competition but beware. The Gods of the Abysses are eager to receive some sacrifice so be sure to not be part of them!

You’ll fight three of the major naval battles fought during the bitter years of the Great Roman Civil War (49–31 BC): Tauris, Naulochus and Actium.

To enter, go to the tournament page HERE!

The general tournament rules can be found HERE!

 

The first round will commence on Tuesday, the 5th of December 2017. No further entries can be accepted after the tournament has begun.

 

Specific tournament rules:
This tournament will involve 3 rounds. The battles will feature a progressive level of complexity, from the lowest to the highest.

Round 1: Tauris: Caesareans versus Pompeians, 47 BC, Low complexity

Round 2: Naulochus: Caesareans versus Pompeians, 36 BC, Medium

Round 3: Actium: Caesareans versus Antonians, 31 BC, High

Games are paired, so each matchup will be played both ways. First round pairings will be selected randomly, subsequent rounds using the Swiss Chess system. Nobody will play the same opponent in more than one round.

Round times and timing out:
Each round will last 10 days. The minimum number of turns for a full score is 4 and for active players is 2.

The challenge points are 100, and it will be split between the contenders depending on the final result of the battle, being a draw 50-50, and a total victory 100-0.

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #2 - Planning the Battle

Monday, July 23, 2018

Juha Kellokoski, the main game designer from Veitikka Studios, will give us a short overview on a very important topic: how to effectively plan and manage your units during a battle! Kudos to Juha for this great article

In this Dev Diary entry I will show one way to manage a defensive battle plan. As an example, I've decided to play as the United States Army, defending against the Soviet Union. Armored Brigade battles have three phases: the setup phase, the action phase and the after action report phase. Here I'm going through the setup phase. The player must designate his target reference points (TRP) and place obstacles, if he has any, and optionally he can plan unit paths, fire missions etc.

Space Program Manager celebrates the 49th anniversary of the Moon Landing with a discount!

Friday, July 20, 2018

On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 p.m. Eastern Time, people across the Earth listened the words of NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong: "That's one small step for man . . . one giant leap for mankind". These now famous words marked the Apollo 11 mission as one of the most crucial enterprise for modern human history. 

For the first time, human beings walked across the surface of the silent companion of our Planet and the hearts of millions of people watching the event vibrated with an emotion impossible to describe.

Aggressors Dev Diary #6 - Combat (part 1)

Friday, July 20, 2018

One thing I have never liked about 4X strategy games is the missing tactics. I never really understood why. Why cannot a game combine both – strategy and tactics? After all, quite a few generals became emperors!

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #1 - Artificial Intelligence

Monday, July 16, 2018

The Armored Brigade artificial intelligence (AI) is fully dynamic, which means that it can handle any scenario within the game parameters, without a need for any scripting from the scenario designer. This approach has been the basic foundation of the game. I've always found the procedurally generated game content fascinating, and that can be seen in the design philosophy of Armored Brigade.

In Armored Brigade, there's an undefined number of maps, units, environmental conditions, and so on. The system must build a readable representation, process the input and then produce output that creates a credible impression of intelligence that behaves in a realistic, unpredictable and challenging manner. That's quite a challenge indeed. A "chess AI", where you have a finite number of possible states, is out of the question.
