Hello again everyone, I hope you've all been enjoying SoTE in all it's released glory! During the past few months I've been giving the game some space, so that my mind could be a little refreshed and so I see the game more clearly as I update and add features/optimizations/upgrades to it. I took advantage of the time to explore new project ideas and let me tell you, one of them gripped me with a passion so firey I must restrain myself from rambling on about it to all of you, (because truth be told, it's VERY raw right now and is mostly in my imagination, expect news in a few months though).

But anyway that's why it's been so long since I've posted anything, now on to the matter at hand. Over the past few weeks, I was sifting through your suggestions, bug reports, and the game code, letting it all distill for a bit before I began actually tinkering with it. With the 1.1 update I'll be addressing most of the issues that you all pointed out, and adding in a few new features as well; the battles really need a proper 'after action report', also someone suggested that scene transitions could be a bit faster as well, I'll be tweaking the AI to make it a bit smarter, and maybe giving the player some direction in the early game. Not forced direction! I hate that! Only some guidance/suggestions, and I'll include a check box in-game if players don't want any. I think some of the UI could do with a cleaning. (I just can't seem to get UI, in my head it makes sense but then I try and implement it and it goes wrong, but I'll keep trying!)

The update will come out slowly, as I'm dividing my time between two projects and other real life stuff, but I'll be providing bulletins through social media and stuff, so follow to keep up on latest happenings!

If there's anything special you'd like to see in the game, or something that drives you crazy, please let me know and I'll try and work something out, I carefully consider all feedback I receive and try to accommodate when I can. (Because I'm not big enough yet to have haters ;) )

Thanks for reading and take care until next time,
~ Heftig

PS: Apparently when Desura made the split from IndieDB/ModDB I didn't notice that the news updates stopped showing up in both places, I'll make sure to account for that when posting articles from now on!

Thanks for your interest in the game! :)

1: Yes, there will be Skirmish mode (that consists of a single battle of picked or random troops) and there will be Conquest mode, kind of a progressive series of battles with no economic element , I'll be outlining the full details on the various game modes in a future news post so stay tuned!

2: Alas, no, at least not initially. Maybe if the game does really well when it's finished I may decide to add some DLC/content patches or things like that. But we'll see.

Thanks again for your interest and I hope you enjoy the game!

Can't get 0.5, as usual Desura has not updated and the game does not have an update option on the main menu.

So my question is, How do I update to version 0.5 from 0.4.8a?

Hi sorry it took so long to respond, are you still having trouble? I just uploaded the stand-alone file for installing 0.5 independent of Desura, so you can try that if the patch still isn't showing up.

Good luck. :)

Thankyou! ...downloading now and dont worry about the response time, it only took a couple days ...people have lives. Though I know what you mean, people get pretty impatient on the internet.

The thing I like about you as a developer is your updates are quite big, not often but big. I think they are well worth the wait, I shall be checking out the new stuff later. Did the aggressiveness get balanced or is that still the same for now?

Thanks for this.

Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to re-do the aggression settings, I've been saving balancing changes like that until Beta (the unit stats are all way out of place too). It's just been a mad content grind and bug squashing fest during Alpha. But never fear! When Beta lands the AI is getting a massive overhaul, a complete re-write, that should take care of over aggressive behavior once and for all, (or under aggressive behavior, for the truly mad players that live only to kill enemies) and make it much more interesting as well. But like you said, it will be a while before that update comes out...

Thanks for your interest and I hope you enjoy the new hero and stuff!

Thank you, played it a few times now and no problems with it. Hate the fact i turn aggressive and everything to low though and after 12 days I get attacked on a daily basis. I thought the low settings would give a me a day or twos safety before being attacked again. Still think it's a good game with lots of potential though :) Merry Christmas to you too :)

Thanks for the feedback! I am holding off on most of the major aggro/balance/pacing issues until Beta, but I'll keep this in mind for future updates! Maybe I can rig up a temporary fix as I also felt the enemy was too aggressive. ;)
