Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – v1.3.0 Update

Post by AlbertoC »

**NOTE: Saved games from previous versions are not compatible with this version.**

*“Heresy... must be eradicated leaf, brand and root. It must be exorcised utterly or it will return all the stronger, time and time again, until it is too great to destroy.”*
*— Galan Noirgrim, Master of the Ordo Malleus*

Today marks the release of 1.3.0, accompanying the new expansion: Chaos Space Marines!

We like you’ll enjoy this update. It is massive, as you can see from the changelog below. A lot of the new improvements have been made possible thanks to your constant feedback, support and suggestions.
Unfortunately, the update is not savegame compatible. If you’re playing through a game and you would like to continue it, a Legacy branch will be kept active so that you can.

We hope you’ll have fun with 1.3.0. Let us know what you think, on the forum or in the comments below.


Changelog:

New Faction (Chaos Space Marines DLC)
Death to the False Emperor

* **Initial Challenge:** Medium
* **Chaos Cultists:** Cheap fodder infantry that can found cities and increase city growth.
* **Unholy Rites:** Sacrifice city population to a Dark God to grant the city a significant temporary economic boost based on the god.
* **Boons of Chaos:** When a Champion of Chaos kills an enemy, there's a chance the unit gains a permanent boon.
* **Spawnhood:** Instead of gaining a Boon of Chaos, there's a chance the unit transforms into a Chaos Spawn.
* **Dark Apotheosis:** Instead of gaining a Boon of Chaos, there's a chance the unit transforms into a mighty Daemon Prince.
* **Marks of Chaos:** Brand individual units with a mark from one of the Dark Gods to increase the unit's powers.
* **It Will Not Die:** Daemon engines that regenerate hitpoints each turn and even consume the souls of their enemies.

* Added 5 new tips.
* Added display of total number of Chaos Cultists killed on Gladius to the menu screen.
* Unit overlay now shows if a unit has actions remaining with a player-colored border around the unit icon.
* Holding Ctrl while giving attack orders now makes the unit go into melee range for the attack if the unit has melee and ranged weapons.
* Added population limit to the city overlay, so you can see at a glance if a city is population-capped.

Balance
* When a hero unit dies all his items now become unclaimed for the hero's owner. This should reduce the overwhelming impact of losing a hero.

* Kastelan Robot's Repulsor Grid now returns 17% of ranged damage done by weapons that are not blast, template or witchfire.

* Smoke screen now blocks line of sight.
* Teleportation is no longer possible into enemy city tiles.

* Fixed Shockwave not applying Pinned.

General

Is spectator mode only for multiplayer? If yes, can it be done for single player game too? I get an error sound, the screen turns black and freezes when selecting spectator on single player and starting the game...and I can get rid of it only by ending the process in task manager.
