With all the DLCs available is there any possibility for a bundle so you don't have to do a separate purchase and download for each?
Thanks

There is already such a bundle on STEAM. It makes a bundle of whichever items you have not already purchased.

Thanks for the quick reply. However, I'm one of the ones who won't use STEAM. I only use Matrix/Slitherine.

I have enquired whether such a bundle could be done on the Slitherine store. The question is whether the store software is capable of bundling just the items you don't already own.

I bought the latest Strategic Command games as a three game bundle from the Matrix store but I didn't own any of them at the time. A premade bundle would be good for a person who just got into your game and wanted to add all the DLCs with one purchase .

There is a premade bundle for FOG2 on the Slitherine store, but it is as the bottom of the page.

Yes, we've been hearing that for a while now but we are 45 days shy of a year since Wolves. It's starting to feel like Slitherine doesn't give a s*** about FoG II. If it wasn't for you working with Paul to add in the content from the TT Mod we wouldn't have had much in the way of newness outside of rules tweaks and bug fixes over this time span. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate all of your efforts and dedication and this is no way a criticism of you or your work. But It's like Field of Glory is the red headed stepchild of this site, and you are the dad keeping it going while the rich step mother gives her affection to every other kid but yours.

LOL. Yeah, I am irritated, ten and a half months and we still don't even know what time frame the dlc will be in.

You have entirely the wrong impression. Slitherine is fully on board with the "next big thing" in FOG2. But it is a big thing, and hence takes time to develop.

Good. I want to be wrong.

And by "big thing" I hope it's even bigger than Wolves was, after all this time.

I am a fairly patient dude but when I love a game this much I start to lose it around the 10 month mark.

For some reason I find myself wondering about FOG2 and 'Empires'.
Perhaps, this next big thing involves more than one Developer and, whilst Byzantine Games are on schedule, other developer{s} are missing their deadlines. If so then maybe Slitherine as the publisher should consider releasing the Byzantine aspects as DLC{s} whilst waiting for the other developer{s} to get their act in order.

that's what i needed to hear. Personally, I hope it will be a great DLC of the entire Middle Ages.

I want the middle ages as well but personally I am hoping for a move in the other direction perhaps all in one go, i.e. a large “Swifter Than Eagles” DLC lining things up for a “Chariots of War” DLC for Field Of Glory Empires.

Bring on the Hittites, Mitanni, Mycenaeans and Trojans, after all we now have the Trojan war tied down to the 11190’sBC.

Have we?
On what basis? If I may ask.

The timeline leading to this was presented by the Historian Michael Wood at his lecture on Tory at the British Museum associated with their Trojan War exhalation on the 6th of December this dating has also been brought into by the Australian Hittite expert Trevor Bryce.
