Re: Future DLC?

It seems having experienced Slitherine advertising further expansions for the first FoG that were never published and, the withdrawal of support for the subsequent version, there is to be another repetition with this version of the game with Slitherine turning its attention elsewhere. Or not. Howev...

Re: FoG Machine Learning Prediction Project

For the devs, can there be logging features developed to make this sort of studies possible in the future? Not just the data points above. Can help in balancing, rules changes, AI opponent optimisation too. First you would have to convince me that such a mechanistic analysis would actually have val...

Re: Bug on hills borders

The only time we have seen that bug is when someone was running the game in a PC emulator on a Mac.

Can you post your DxDiag report please.

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

I seem to recall someone arguing, a couple of years ago, that spears were commonly held underarm. Even in the phalanx. I believe there was an article in 'Ancient Warfare'. Are there still people who hold that idea? While I would agree that, in a one on one fight, a couched stance with a spear does ...

Re: Infantry Square Mod

Hi, Paul! I tried to add this feature to my General mod, especially there are already commands/groups in it. It was not difficult to add neccessary scripts, but as a result I had problems with unit routfinding when a unit had another unit on its rout at the initial position. I had to comment/remove...

Re: Ally stole my province

I can think of no historical instance where a besieging army stood by and watched a newcomer of much smaller size seize their prize. Siege of Nicaea, First Crusade. The Crusaders did the besieging. Their Byzantine allies sneaked a force by boats across the lake and accepted the Turkish garrison's s...

Re: Field of Glory II 1.5.19 Public Beta

I played one customed battle at last, Roman vs Sarmatian I deployed as the OP suggests, concentrating to one flank. The new AI works as Sarmatian lancers opposing my other "vacant" flank advanced immediately. Shortly after, lancer in mid and the other flank also advanced. This indeed is different t...

Has the above shoulder grip animation for the spearmen ever been discussed on this forum?
I know it's something small but it really bothers me everytime I see it.
You mean the spears being used overarm? If so, what makes you think that is wrong?

Re: Rise of AI Global Mod updated to v2.3

Richard, There is something I don't understand. As you are the game's developer, why is a "new and improved" AI a mod as opposed to not directly incorporated into the game? Because it has been developed by a third party, we don't own it. Assuming we got permission to incorporate it, long-term maint...

Not too sure if it's working. I had a nomad archer unit attacked by hoplite inf, they lost 30 men in the melee but did not fall back. Next turn they got attacked from their other front and the usual 'surround and destroy' happened, without me being able to extract my cavalry. If this happens again,...
