BM-21 Battery – weapon of war, which is enormously widespread and capable of creating some real havoc, at least against lightly armored targets.

BM- 21 battery is consisted of eighteen forty-tube 122mm rocket launchers and they could bomb enemy positions with 720 rounds of non-persistent Sarin or Hydrogen Cyanide in a single 20 second salvo, reload and replicate that strike 10 minutes later.

BM-21 Battery used in War Cabinet Game is suitable for surprise attack against troop concentrations, strong points and command centers.

How would you counter BM-21 Battery?

War Cabinet Officer’s management interface design is ready. The purpose of this UI is to provide information about your officer’s Combat stats, Special Traits, Experience and Rewards. From here you would be able to sort and manage officers in easy and intuitive way with single click.

This way you could choose best commanders for various units and missions for best results.

The interface has three main parts: The first one is located on the top. It gives you the information about the commander of the selected unit with his stats, experience, rewards and special abilities. It also shows the name and the rank of the current commanding officer.

The second one, located on the left side of the screen provides information about highlighted officer from the pool. Looking at the stats and skills you can decide what type of units would benefit most of his command. There would be five major types of land units: Infantry, Mechanized, Artillery, Armored and Anti-Air battalions. Same design will be used for Air Force, but it will utilize different categories and special abilities. Clicking on the awards icons with reveal more details what kind of medals he has and how they were earned.

The third one is located on the right side of the screen and shows the officers pool. This is the place where you can oversee overall officer’s availability, skills, decorations and seniority of the commanders.

War Cabinet interface design is created to be distinctive and user friendly in order to provide flawless game experience.
All your comments and further recommendation on that you are more than welcome.

New screenshots will be added next week, so stay tuned.

Hi guys,

We are happy to share with you the design of the Strategic Map.This is the place to get the overview of the war theater.

Here you plan and perform movements, deployment, reinforcements and air operations.You also get information and filter display of strategic objects like barracks, factories, supply depots, SAM sites, EWR stations, cities, villages, etc.
Weathear report will guide you about combat operations in different atmospheric conditions.

What do you think about it? Share your comments.

If you want to see a full-size screenshot:

Supply and logistics have been playing important role in every war since ancient times.
As a general rule if you want to win a war there should be couple of things present. One of them is strong supply and logistics. This involves huge volume of manpower, equipment, fuel, food infrastructure consideration and serious planning. Without it even mightiest army is becoming helpless mass of people and equipment.
They all had to be moved usually between great distances from the homeland into the campaigning theaters. The fighting front is where the links in the supply chains end.

In the end it doesn’t matter if it is a real war or just a strategy war game the rules remain the same. That is why we believe that any serious war strategy game should consider including this key element. We will.

In this regard we would like to share with you one piece of equipment suit for the task. This is the Ural fuel tanker 375D, which can be quickly and accurately allocated to supply the battle front. The Ural-375D is a general purpose 4.5 ton 6x6 truck, produced at the Ural Automotive Plant in the Russian SFSR since 1961. The ZIL-157 was the standard Soviet truck until it was replaced by the Ural-375D, which became the standard Soviet truck in 1979. The Ural-375D was soon replaced by the Ural-4320. The Soviets also found the trucks an ideal platform for the BM-21 Grad rocket launcher. Other modes for the Ural-375D included troop carrier, supply carrier, etc.

So please take a close look at it and tell us what you think.

Economy system within strategy war games


We plan to implement economy system into the game. By doing this we want to achieve an additional depth of the gameplay. However, in order to do the right balance we need your valuable input here.

First of all do you enjoy economic aspect of the strategy games or you prefer pure combat only gameplay?

If there is a game economy in place it should be:

1. As simple as possible with very few type of resources with minimum amount of user management.
2. Moderately detailed economy system part of the core game mechanics. This could include several resources to be generated, monitored and used for various activities. This would mean roughly up to 20% of the gameplay might be related to economic and resource dependent activities like: purchasing of equipment, upgrades, promotions, personnel recruitment, repair of facilities, etc.
3.Well developed war economy model which will strongly influence game campaign and rules. This would required better planning of your spending and more economy related decisions and events. Without proper economy management your chance to gain victory will be vastly reduced. Of course at times it would require more micromanagement.

Any other thoughts and questions on this topic are mostly welcome.

What's the most enjoyable part of a game to you?

When you start playing a new game or simply replay an old one what's the most enjoyable part of the game to you?

Is it the beginning when you explore a new world and learn how to play or it is the the mid-game, when you have the chance to expand your powers and getting deep into the story or you are a fan of the final stages of the game.

How much you like to learn new things and use new functions, try new characteristics while gaming or on the contrary you prefer to stick to familiar things and keep on playing?

Warmest greetings of the Season Happiness in the New Year with Christmas Blessings!

Repair your valuable assets

Hi guys,

What do you think about the option War Cabinet to allow the presence of engineering function? Would you like your vehicles, buildings, routes and etc. to be repaired as this would cost you some resources?

In most games I`m tired of having assets available but can't repair them, when they get damaged.

Would you consider it effective and useful? Would you spend your valuable game resources for different repairs?

For me it would be a great option even if it costs much, because the repair of valuable assets would give me additional flexibility and speed in all combats. It will also change my entire strategy and planning.
