I'll +1 on that.


Personally I am a fan of the Kievan RUS - but the Crusades would be interesting as well.

Re: Best Turtle Faction for FOG : E ?

Thank you gentlemen.

Dacia is closest to my PON country of Russia, so I think I'll give that one a whirl first.

And then try the others in time.

Best Turtle Faction for FOG : E ?

Almost ready to start playing this one but wanted to ask some of you folks that have put some time in already ... which faction do you think is best for a Infra / trading / economic / diplomacy approach ? Looking at existing feedback, it seems that it's a bloody / active affair for pretty much every...

Request for the Future

A few years down the road - as I know you guys will be engaged with FOG:E - but I just wanted to plant the seed: Medieval Period - similar to Crusader Kings 2 - using the new engine (link to FOG 2 optional) I picked up Crusader Kings 2 the other day in a Humble Bundle and said to myself - "All ...

Re: Is this still the Best Strategy Guide around for PON ?

Thanks Durk. I have several but always come back to PON. I had an old PON game going (on a computer that died the True Death) where I mounted some successful campaigns but there has been a long gap and I forgot what I did to effectively manage the bulk forces vs Command Penalty. :bonk: I'll peek at ...

Trying the diplo slant on some Tribal / Feudal type nations like Khiva. I'm making good inroads with CP and want to get to the point where the Khiva objective for score is met. Will that happen at Protectorate or Colony? (would prefer to go straight to Colony) Hopefully does not have to be seized th...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires out on July 11th

It's very reasonably priced! On Steam, if you already own FOG II, you can "complete your collection" by adding Empires for $29.99 (which I did, thank you very much!) or list price is $39.99 - quite reasonable! +1 Agree Also got it for 29.99 - thanks for the reasonable price. So far - has ...

Re: Battle system: FOG2 or AGEod?

Hopefully in the future it can get a bit more granular.

This is a nice feature that helps to reduce some tedium .... an...

New AGEOD Friendly PC ?

Giving focus to the old (non-FOG : E) engine, I was hoping in the near future to pick up a new PC that would be best aligned for AGEOD game stability. Performance - is actually a second consideration in my book. I have no issues waiting for PON to process turns for example - but do get a little frus...

I guess someone can replace the 3D models you dislike with 3D counters, but shown 'flat'. It is all in 3D these days, even flat 2D games are using 3D engines. That's the way Microsoft did DirectX.

Sounds painful. But ... I have to imagine that each turn, the engine checks the conditions globally and if you meet the mission requirements are met, it pulls the trigger on the corresponding event ?

Re: National mission status?

Right - Either am I.

I'm guessing that an "event" however would use a call to the engine - referencing some objects and maybe accepting some parameters?

Could such a command, without an event creation, be passed through the ~ console ?
