Back to News Listing Field of Glory II Updated to version 1.5.3

Spears will clash against shields again, as Field of Glory II has been updated to version 1.5.3.

This new version brings lots of changes, ranging from Gameplay Mechanics (improved push backs), AI (several significant enhancements), Multiplayer (it is now possible to have mirrored MP challenges),  Campaigns (campaign scoring system) and more.

Take a look at the full changelog here:

You can download the update from here:

Last but not least, the vanilla version of the game is not the only thing getting updated. The spectacular TT Mod created by Paul Adaway will soon be updated to a new version. The new version includes many improvements including individual faction banners! Take a look at the screenshots below.

IMPORTANT! Be sure to update the game to version 1.5.3

This version of TT Mod is too large for the in-game download system, but it is very easy to install. Look out for the update notice with download link and installation instructions on the Slitherine forum very soon.

The FoG II ‘TT mod’ is a comprehensive user-created mod for both Field of Glory II and DLCs.

Full details of the original version of Paul Adaway’s 'magnum opus' are given here but the new version includes lots more new or modified army lists. In keeping with its miniatures based inspiration it has many new unit figures e.g. nearly all nations have their own specific pike phalanx, amended Greek cavalry, a plethora of new Spanish infantry units and one of my favourites – the Tarantine Light Javelin Horse.

For those of you would like to try this mod but are unsure about its impact on the game, rest assured that Paul has not amended the gameplay, rules or unit capabilities in anyway – its focus is on giving players a wider range of armies to choose from and units to play with. Installing TT Mod will not alter the main game in any way, and you will still be able to play the “vanilla” unmodded game whenever you want.

Special thanks are of course due to Paul for putting this together and then making it freely available.

WarPlan Dev Diary #3 - Naval System

Monday, July 8, 2019

Most naval battles occurred within a very short span of time over long distances. Simulating this on the WarPlan scale of 2 weeks is a difficult task. Consider the map following the Bismarck and the Prince Eugen. This whole engagement took just 1 week from the day the left port to the day the battleship was sunk. It took half the British navy to find her at sea. Another example is the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

The movement and attack on Pearl Harbor took 11 days crossing 140 hexes WarPlan hexes of map distance. The complexities of recreating realistic scenarios are a challenge to say the least.
