Increase permitted attachment size

Screenshots are often very useful but the default permitted filesize is 1MB, I think, which is not large enough for a 4k .jpg screenshot unless you laboriously compress it or shrink the file. I don't think it would be much strain for Slitherine / Matrix to enable even a 4MB file. If Slitherine have ...

REQUEST: Enable manual setting of default mod folders

The folders containing mods for units and campaigns can become very large. Currently, by default, the game only looks for these mods in a folder on our precious system drive. This is likely to be our fastest, most expensive and therefore smallest drive. I hope that in the next update you will suppor...

Re: Scripts Modified - Game to be abandoned (Another Fatty)

On one occasion where this happened before, the person who edited their game files did so quite innocently and mentioned what had happened. If you are in multi-player, you ought to be aware that editing the game is going to produce conflicts. Unfortunately, there is at present no way to mark the gam...

Scripts Modified - Game to be abandoned (Another Fatty)

In a 14 player game, somebody modified their scripts and it has been suggested that the game be abandoned.

It isn't easy to have a multi-player game with so many people involved to progress through so many turns. It is a shame that the game should end like this.

A video investigation here with some pretty powerful bow and arrows! Seeing that arrow, I don't care how thick the armour is. I don't want it heading anywhere near!

Re: New TT Mod version 1.5.18 now available!

The Etruscan Axemen look absolutely gorgeous! Amazing work!

Thank you for the Mod.

These mods and campaigns are large and I hope that Field of Glory II will soon support manual selection of the folder where they are expected to be found.

Decide Folder for Mods and Campaigns

Is it now possible to manually select where the game expects to find Mods and Campaigns? How can we set this folder to our desired location? If it is not possible yet, when can we expect this facility? (Mods and Campaigns are quite large files and there may not be much storage available on our syste...

Digital Humanities, Mathematical Modelling of Cavalry Charge

There is an interesting paper by Michael Armstrong at Brock University which describes a mathematical model re-enactment of the Charge of the Light Brigade. (His modelling might be useful in other games too, since it is tried elsewhere with cruise missiles and the American Civil War.) After the disa...

Re: Slitherine acquires the Master of Magic franchise

I was going to say, if there is one franchise which ought to be acquired by Slitherine, it is Harpoon IV. It has already been acquired. Panther Studios have also been acquired. Amazing going, Slitherine! Who bought the "Masters of Orion" franchise recently? Wargaming.com, OK, Slitherine, how about.....

REQUEST: Filter by Human

In the "spreadsheet" in the game, we ought to be able to "filter by human player".
The distinct qualities "Faction" and "Human" have been conflated into the same column/field.

Also, a reminder that it would be nice to be able to click on the title of the column and resort that way too.
