Eador — Update notes (June 10)

June 10, 2015  |  Eador, Эадор  |  28 Comments

Hi everyone,

The main addition in today’s update is the ability to transfer progress of one of your heroes, as well as selected items and units, to the next shard.

160

Now, after you conquer a shard, the game shows a new menu, where at the expense of the astral energy you can choose whom and what you would like to take with you on. Units and items can be exchanged between your heroes, but remember: everything has a price, and most likely something will have to stay behind.

As you can guess, this feature has a bit of experimental nature, so please let us know if you happen to notice some worrisome balance issues.

There’s another nice addition for players who value their time and don’t like spending it on low-level enemies during late game. If you’re sure in your army’s capabilities, you now have the opportunity to choose the autocombat option in the province’s attack dialogue, right on the strategic map — in this case the game will skip loading the tactical battle.

Update notes 1.6.0:

Added:

  • New option to transfer units, items and one of the player’s heroes to the next shard.
  • New autocombat option in the province’s attack dialogue on the strategic map.

Fixed:

  • Tooltip display for item descriptions. Now additional information for items can be triggered with RMB, instead of mouse hovering.

Caribbean! — Beta update (June 5)

June 5, 2015  |  Caribbean!, На Карибы!  |  33 Comments

Hi everyone,

The beta update for ‘Caribbean!’ is now up on Steam. To try it out you’ll need to choose ‘Caribbean!’ in your Games library, click on ‘Properties’, go to ‘Betas’ tab, and then select ‘Public beta’. After this Steam should update your game.

1053beta

The update includes two new additions:

  • Governors:

Some initial work has been done for one of the most wanted features. You can now assign governors for your faction’s towns to help you deter possible enemy attacks.

To find out what candidates for the job are there, you’ll need to talk a bartender in tavern. Then find and ask them yourself if they’d like to join your faction. With the next town capture, you’ll be able to assign a man suited for the job.

  • Naval sieges:

Another long-awaited feature. Naval sieges consist of two stages. First, your ships and enemy’s fortress exchange cannon shots from a distance. Then, once your ships get closer, you can deploy your troops on boats and begin the fort’s assault on foot.

Press 1-3 buttons to select one of the ships.

Press F1 – to change selected ship’s position (sail closer to enemy fort or return to the initial position)

Press F2 – Deploy the selected ship’s troops on boats.

Press F3 – Deploy the troops with you on board.

To initiate a naval siege, you’ll need to have at least one ship with rank 3 or more. In the fleet menu three ships right of the player are chosen to partake in a naval siege.

We hope you’ll enjoy the update and, as usual, look forward to your feedback.

Hi everyone,

Along with the new update, today we also release our official guide for the game that we hope will prove to be quite useful both for new and experienced players.

Right now it can be viewed from the game’s Steam store page and, for your convenience, in Steam guides as well (please upvote for visibility). So if you see fellow Caribbean players in need for some answers, we’d appreciate if you could refer them to this guide. Thanks!

Hi everyone,

Not many changes this time around, so once more we’d like to ask you to post the most annoying problems you experience in the game right now.

You can do it in the comments below, on our forum or using our tech support e-mail (more preferable option, and you can send us your savegame) — support@snowbirdgames.com. We look through every message, but unfortunately we can’t always reproduce some of the issues you report. At the very least, we’ll do our best to investigate what could’ve gone wrong.

Eador — 2 years

April 17, 2015  |  Eador, Snowbird, Эадор  |  28 Comments

Hi everyone,

On April 19th Eador. Masters of the Broken World will be having its two-year anniversary.

2years

This time around we’ll be celebrating the birthday in a more modest manner, so first of all we’d really like to take this opportunity to give thanks from our team to all the fans one more time.

Huge thanks to everyone who stayed and put up with us during these two years, kept following the game and still looks forward to something more and new. Eador is the first big and thus very complicated project for us. That’s why it was so vital to have the luxury of your feedback, suggestions and, last but not least, your support for such an important first step. For all of this we’re very grateful.

We hope that we’ll be able to fuel your enthusiasm with some announcements in the near future. For now though, we can at least promise a new update for the game coming next week (UPDATE: it’s taking a bit longer, but it’s still coming soon!).

By the way, on this occasion Eador. MotBW, Eador. Genesis and Allied Forces DLC will be available with a nice 85% discount on Steam till Sunday. We think it’s a great opportunity to try a pretty good strategy game for those who’ve yet to come around to it.
