Re: Poll. To be or not to be hexed.

Some (older) infos about Slitherixeod's new Archon engine:

Apparently it can be used for both, area and hex based games. So, it's up to the game developers to choose.

Re: Poll. New engine first game.

I'd like Ageod to lean more towards empire building no matter what era. So more grand strategy than operational art. Even if that does mean one month turns. But with a strong historical focus. I think, empire building is why Paradox games, Total War games plus Civilzation are the most popular "...

Re: Poll. To be or not to be hexed.

Didn't vote b/c it really depends on scale and era: All Ageod games I played (sans the Spanish Civil War and WOS) work just fine with areas. Besides To End all Wars. IMO WW1 (and WW2) with frontlines and huge troop numbers would be better represented by hexes. I find TEAW visually rather confusing. ...

We know nothing of which game Ageod will develop using the new engine or when will it come. Which will be your preference? You may choose only one option. I voted for WWII, Pacific War.

Hi deidaraakatski. Well, we already know the next game using the classic Ageod engine.

The problem with PON is, apparently Ageod couldn't make up their mind what they want it to be: an operational or a grand strategy game. With weekly or monthly turns. Focus on military operations or on empire management. Either you have granular war-making and meaningless empire management (weekly tu...

Why weekly or bi-monthly turns? 1560 to 3120 turns for the grand campaign? In PON you don't have 60 years of never ending war needing to micromanage armies. There are not enough regions for sub-strategic, aka operational warfare. If I want to play the American Civil War on an operational scale I'm g...

Slow Ageod forum speed

Is it just me but since a few weeks(?!) Ageod forum is running markedly slower all the time than the other websites of the Slitherixeod group, including accessing forum and getting to threads & pages?

Weekly or biweekly turns?

Arguably, the most important things should be:

optimizing engine speed
optimizing UI
and maybe also optimizing modability.

This could be more important than the chosen era for the next game.

Good luck
