This gives me some vibes of SanctuaryRPG, and I rather loved that game.  Completely different gameplay but similar levels of depth and the way it's presented.

Hey Ashedragon,

That's awesome, I've heard the sanctuary comparison before (I guess cause both are Ascii) but yeah definitely very different gameplay wise.

Have you played Warsim yet?

Hey everyone,

So the summer sale is here again finally!

I know many of you guys have Warsim, but if you don't have it yet or someone you think might like it doesn't have it yet now is definitely as good a time as ever.

Warsim is 60% off for the next two weeks (€2.59, £2.19, $3.19)

Check out the Steam page here - http://store.steampowered.com/app/659540/Warsim_The_Realm_of_Aslona/?beta=0

To all the people who've purchased the game so far, thank you so much for the immense support in these 3 years the games been on steam. We're immenently going to hit 20k total copies sold by the end of today which honestly when I think about it, as a Console window text based game in 2020 is pretty wild so thank you all for that.

I've got an update brewing which has no one specific theme but covers a lot of different areas. I'm aiming for 200 total features to commemorate hitting 20k copies sold. So far I've got 159 features done so the update will likely be out this week.

Thanks again and to any people who've newly discovered the game, Welcome!

Huw (Solo dev of Warsim)

ps. If any of you guys have ideas for other places I should share this or people who could be interested I'm always up for hearing them! Smiley

Hey everyone,

So this is an exciting time! We were just on the cusp of it before the summer sale but now Warsim has officially sold 20'000 copies! To celebrate I've made an update with 200 features in it. To each of you 20'000 people, I honestly can't thank you enough. Genuinely.

The update has no general direction but tons of sub categories of stuff, I hope you all enjoy Smiley

CAN I AFFORD THE BOOZE? (22 features)

I noticed that while in taverns where you can buy ale, you can't see how much gold you've got. This is because once upon a time taverns were just locations to see but drinking in them and spending gold wasn't do-able. After the 'let the people drink' update we've been able to buy ale but still you can't see how much gold you've got. Now every tavern in the realm has something that checks how much gold you've got first. I also fixed a handful of little tavern bugs noticed while updating them all.

* Added current gold indicator to Darkdale Tavern (Darkdale)
* Added current gold indicator to Gilded Crescent Tavern (Darkdale)

KNIGHT TO CHAMPION (5 features)

The knight to champion screens were a little lacking, it wasn't clear what happened to the knights sometimes so now you will be shown you've lost a knight, and if it's a brawl you'll not lose the knight even if he loses the fight... he'll just lose a bit of pride.

* Added screen for knight winning fight to become champion (credit u/Jean287)

UPGRADING THE BLACKMARKET (8 features)

Previously upgrading the Blackmarket gave you no screen or notification, once done things automatically improved but the player would be clueless as to what had improved...

* Added new screen with sound effect when paying for Blackmarket upgrade

Warsim 0.8.1.1 (The Wild North Improved and more! 83 Features)

Hey everyone,

So to all those new people who are joining us having picked up the game during the summer sale, welcome!

The Black Bank has been improved and brought up to speed with the Royal Bank, and several other things have been improved and fixed.

HOW MUCH GOLD DO I HAVE (14 features)

A lot of in-game areas where the player could buy stuff/pay for stuff, doesn't show how much gold they have which can be cause for annoyance. I've cleared through a bunch more areas that were lacking on gold indication!

It's been a busy time with the steam sale, but I also just figured out how to get Morrowind on Andoid and lets just say, I forgot how great and immersive of a game Morrowind is.

Hey everyone,

So this update didn't have any particular direction, the main aim was to clear through bug reports and recent suggestions and to continue testing the exploration locations of the game world and make sure everything is working as intended.

What I ended up with was an update adding a new drinking competition, origins of tavern brawls, improvements on the northern fort, wheel of wealth, Ruined arena, South coast region, Magic theatre and way more. I hope you guys enjoy it!

DEALING WITH KAFF OF DARKDALE (5 features)

Defender from Audiogames mentioned that as ruler of Darkdale he'd love the ability to remove the scam-stall run by Kaff, now you can do so, with Kaff offering an interesting alternative, you beat her in a drinking competition and she leaves, else she stays. Are you up for it?

* Added ability to shut down Kaff's legitimate goods stall if you rule Darkdale
* Added Kaff challenging you to a drinking contest to settle your dispute (with dynamic text based on your previous interactions with her)
* Added Screen for allowing Kaff to go free
* Added screen and sfx for arresting Kaff (+1 prisoner, +random loot)
* Added ability to have a drinking contest against Kaff (if you win, +random loot)

TAVERN BRAWL ORIGINS (4 features)

Ever wondered why when you watch a tavern brawl, a fight occurs out of nowhere. Now there's a system that explains why those two are fighting and there's plenty of variety.

* Added new system for bar fight origins now you will be told a story as to why the people are fighting
* Added new screen for fight origin story
* Added 5 random intros to finding a fight
* Added 15 fight origin stories

NORTHERN FORT REPAIRED (2 features)

Had a report of a bug in the Northern fort and found a second one while testing, all fixed now though

* Fixed screen not resetting when installing commander of northern repaired fortress
* Fixed inability to add max troop number to northern repaired fortress (credit u/MorganFreecock <-LOL)

WHEEL OF WEALTH RESPUN (5 features)

Checked out the Wheel of Wealth in a recent playtest and fixed it up a bit with some new screens and sound effects.

* Added new gold gained indicator for Wheel of Wealth
* Fixed text colour issue with wheel of wealth victory text
* Fixed 12 text bugs in wheel of wealth screens
* Added new coin gain sound effect for winning wheel of wealth

The ruined arena screens were pretty bad, noticed in a playtest and have fixed it!

* Fixed 3 text bugs in ruined arena screens
* Fixed broken layout in ruined arena screens
* Added gold indicator to ruined arena rebuild screen

ENTRY FEE! FOR ME? (3 features)

u/lordintype made a good suggestion a little while back, you should be able to plead with the leader of the Blackmarket not to charge you a toll as Mercantile leaders can slap a hefty 50 gold entry fee each time you enter.

* Added brawl pit champion fights and battle of two pit fights give you gold bag reward screen
* Added colour layout to the pit champion and two pits fight aftermath income screens

Warsim 0.8.1.3 (Defender Update, 118 features)

Hey everyone,

So this update is a special one and is almost entirely thanks to members of the Warsim community, chiefly Defender from Audiogames.net a community for blind or visually impaired gamers and one of Warsim's main longtime community strongholds. Defender had like many times in the past few years spent some time collecting a large list of bugs, errors, and suggestions from his playthroughs. The list was impressive and contained over 100 things and I've tried to clear through it all as best I can. Thanks Defender, and everyone who has helped make this game better!

SELF FIGHTING GOBLINS! (4 features)

After reading a bug report from Misery on steam mentioning some units hitting themselves instead of their opponents I found it hilarious, it's now a feature. Now the goblins of Uktak have a strange passtime! Self-fighting, who can beat themselves up for the longest?

Self fight steam link - https://steamcommunity.com/app/659540/discussions/0/2646378342130510349/

* Added ability to watch goblin self-fights in Uktak village (credit Misery)

* Added 21 new human names (Geot, Godulf, Clydog, Rhain, Triffyn, Clotri, Aergol, etc)
* Removed 9 duplicate human names

I SEE ASCII! (5 features)

Thanks for bringing these to my attention Defender! Warsim's Ascii-less text only version for visually impaired players is mostly fine but Defender's identified a few bits of ascii that appear to have snuck through the filter and thus will be read aloud by screenreading software and annoy the hell out of the people playing. All fixed now!

* Fixed ascii art for Goblinwood berserkers not filtered by ascii blocker (credit Defender)
* Fixed ascii art for viewing wilderman saaroth camp not filtered by ascii blocker (credit Defender)
* Added Gro'lok's stump names visible when ascii is disabled (credit Defender)
* Fixed ascii art for general's new helmet creation screen not filtered by ascii blocker (credit Defender)
* Fixed ascii art for minor goblin clans visible when ascii is disabled (credit Defender)

DISCOVERING BAIAA (3 features)

* Reworked text for discovering the Baiaa (credit Defender)
* Added new screen with sfx for knight placing flag in newly discovered Baiaa door (credit Defender)
* Fixed text bug in attacking Baiaa text (credit Defender)

BLACKMARKET CAPTURE IMPROVEMENTS (4 features)

* Added new screen for capturing Blackmarket initially (credit Defender)

* Fixed 6 text layout bugs with nomad rock jumping

* Added new text if vassal only sends a single unit
* Added new text if vassal cannot send any troops instead of just showing normal text with you are sent 0 troops (credit Defender)

MORE SOUND EFFECTS (5 features)

Can never have too many sound effects in game, now more areas that were devoid of sound have it!

* Added burning and screaming sounds to burning Rihhm Village down in a raid (credit Defender)
* Added burning and screaming sounds to burning Smallhaven Village down in a raid (credit Defender)
* Added sound effect to recruiting troops from Rihhm village (credit Defender)

* Updated mercenary hire screen to show hire and annual costs

GOBLIN SPEAKER (4 features)

GOLEMS REWORKED (4 features... Or 36.3 billion)

After looking through all the face generation systems in game and ranking them by total faces they can output, Golems were at the bottom of the list with a measly 7 million possible faces. I've wanted to rework them for a while so I created some samples and completely remade the system from the ground up. Now the new Golems have 36.3 billion possible faces!

Here's the list of in-game face generators and their respective total number of faces that can be generated - https://i.imgur.com/1AL9Aay.png

* Remade Golem faces and scrapped the old system and it's 7 million golems
* Added 36.3 billion new Golem faces
* Updated Golem face generator to use the new system

BILLIONS OF FACES FOR ALL (4 features... or 26 billion)

After the above race face tracking, I planned to improve the generators for the remaining 4 races below a billion. Now there are no face generators in Warsim that produce less than 1 billion faces!

* Added 22.5 billion new lizardmen faces (was 100 million now 22.6 billion)
* Added 1.6 billion new blogroki faces (was 74 million now 1.67 billion)

Here's that same race list with the new improvements - https://i.imgur.com/O9jTzpb.png

* Added new throne room encounter 'Man wants to join your army as his brother did'
* Added new throne room encounter 'Man following the whispering winds instruction'

DEATH SOUND SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS (4 features)

The way the death sound system in the settings was laid out was confusing, I've tried to improve it and make it clearer. I still don't recommend using it but I don't like deleting features that could be optional so it's still there. For those who don't know it's a system that gives a death sound effect to each dead unit in battle, unfortunately this doesn't work well and immensely slows battles down and delivers choppy half-cut sounds.

* Added a new sub menu in settings for the deathsound system feature
* Added explanation of the death sound system and it's issues
* Made death sound systems slower speed x2 even slower
* Added better notification of what status the death sound system is currently at

* Added goblin joiner from slap stall

YOUR ORDER OF KNIGHTS IMPROVED (7 features)

It was brought to my attention that there were some missing screens and lacking feedback in custom knightly orders, I've tried to remedy this!

* Added new screen for not having enough gold to convert knights into your order
* Added new screen for not having enough knights to convert into your order
* Reduced cost of converting a knight to your order from 250 gold to 100 gold
* Added new screen for choosing how many knights to convert to your order instead of pure text
* Added new text describing cost of conversion of knights in the quantity choice screen
* Added new screen once you've converted knights to your order (credit Defender)
* Added new screen for joining a single lone knight to the order

MINOR BANDIT IMPROVEMENTS (3 features)

* Fixed setting no bandits or bandit horde in custom settings doesn't block minor bandit groups and shows you random dead groups
* Fixed unable to exit bandit menu when bandits are exctinct

NEW LOOT TROVE (5 features)

A few new items to keep things fresh, the first four are in honour of our new Golems, the last one is a reference to my old and long dead game project the Wastes (which is free on itch.io for the curious)!

* Added 'Small golden golem statue' random loot item (worth 290 gold)

* Added sound effect for failing to recruit in Darkdale
* Added sound effect for hiring grand champion guards (credit Defender)

Hey everyone, so this update is a mix of two things. Primarily the reworking of the games tutorial to make it a bit more informative and better laid out instead of just walls of text. The second part is a review of the Wildwood and Farrad Desert regions of the worlds exploration in a full total sweep for any bugs or areas that could be improved in an effort to improve the total quality of the regions.

TUTORIAL OVERHAUL (6 features)

The previous tutorial was just lots of large walls of text on various topics, I've tried to make this one a bit easier to follow as it goes through the different menu options in the main game screen so new players can have a better idea of what to expect and what to do, this may need further tweaking but I think at the very least it's a step in the right direction.

GOBLINWOOD IN REVIEW (41 features)

Deservant of a section of it's own, trawling through Goblinwood as part of my Wildwood review I found plenty of things in need of fix or improvement here. I also found that purchasing some things in Goblinwood had a small feature where a percentage of your purchase gets added to the Goblinwood treasury as tax. I'd totally forgotten this feature was even a thing but thought it was cool so I've expanded it to cover more areas of Goblinwood, and have now given visible indication that this is happening when you buy thing there.

EVERYTHING ELSE (4 features)

This section actually has a number of cool features that didn't fit anywhere else. There's a feature I added a long while ago where defeating kingdoms can form refugee camps though it didn't occur to me until recently how rare or even non-existant seeming this was. I've looked into it further and discovered that kingdoms only have a chance of forming a refugee group if they are destroyed by someone other than the player, now that's been remedied. Among other things here all goblin throne room visitors will now show you how much gold you'll get for enslaving them if goblin slavery is legal.

* Added refugee kingdoms can spawn when players invade last land of independent kingdom
* Made option to sell throne room visiting goblin to the goblin slaver not shows in advance how much gold that's worth to you
* Changed kingdom origin text for slaver option to try and be more clear that you're leading an army of enslaved not free slaves
* Improved grunt sound effect by removing extra noise and reducing filesize

SCREENSHOTS

* New tutorial introduction - https://i.imgur.com/oUJUvub.png

* And a reward... sorry hunters - https://i.imgur.com/yqiZjvl.png
* New screen before attacking Goblinwood - https://i.imgur.com/d7p6PuZ.png

WHAT'S NEXT

Now that the tutorial stuff is out of the way I'm going to continue sweeping through my bug reports and suggestions list to shrink it down a bit more and will be having a little bit of a break as I have a few things I need to sort out. I imagine another update will come soon enough though!

So this update has been quite broad but it's added a whole bunch of new content, characters, bugfixes, and more! I'm really happy with this one.

MANS THE DICTATOR (8 features)

u/TheGamingDictator or Mans, is a member of our Warsim community who while not someone who's been with us for years is someone who has had a huge impact on the game with tons of bugreports and very helpful community work. He's one of our two reddit mods and has been nothing but a help the entire time, long overdue for him to be in the game and here he is now as a northern warrior with a life-debt to the village of Uktak far in the western swamps, be warned he'll protect that village with his life!

* Added new rock, paper, scissors gambler in the golden crescent tavern in Darkdale
* Added gambler refuses to play with you if you don't have 100 gold
* Added gambler changes his choice if he loses and claims he wins (dynamic outcome of how you can deal with this) (credit Defender)

Warsim 0.8.1.7 (Slave Revolt Origin and much more, 117 features)

Hey everyone,

So another week of successful clearing through big backlogs as well as some more playtesting myself to find bugs and areas to improve. This update has many different improvements all around and lots of new features that I hope you all enjoy!

NEW WAY OF DOING DIFFICULTY (4 features)

Well it's actually the old way, before a background difficulty scale was added that made enemies recruit more and generally be stronger and larger the difficulty used to pretty much soley mean what your starting resources were and nothing more. On the suggestion of u/Ubercharge1 from our reddit community I've added new game difficulty choices for playing default difficulty but with the starting resources of each choice.

* Added new debug mode 23 - Normal mode resources but increased background difficulty off (credit u/Ubercharge1)
* Added new debug mode 24 - Hard mode resources but increased background difficulty off (credit u/Ubercharge1)

* Added new debug mode 26 - Insane mode resources but increased background difficulty off (credit u/Ubercharge1)

SLAVES RISE UP (2 features)

This has been suggested multiple times by people who wanted to start the game as a freer-of-slaves, well now you can. Choosing this origin starts you off destroying the slavers fort and leading your ex-slave army to forming a kingdom!

* Added new kingdom origin start 'Slaver revolt' Start with destroyed slaver fort, ex-slave freed army, +10 public opinion (credit Multiple suggesters)
* Added chance of slaver revolt kingdom origin when you choose random origin

THINK OF THE CHILDREN (24 features)

No matter how many children you drop out of trap doors, there are always more who visit your throne room asking for money. No matter how many you give money to the odds of more coming is low. Now there will be a background tracker keeping a note of this, if you are horrible to young folk visiting your throne room you will find a lot less of them or maybe never see them. Treat them well and more and more will come!

* Added youth relation figure tracking your background relation to the youth in throne room encounters

MERCENARY CONVERTS IMPROVED (5 features)

Defender pointed out that the ability to freely convert your 100 battlescore troops to be members of merc groups with 190 battlescore units is a little exploity, now I've added a system to at least provide some growing costs depending on how advanced the merc units are.

* Added new system of paying to convert soldiers into merc groups with much more powerful units (credit Defender)
* Merc groups with higher than 200 battlescore units cost 6 gold per unit to convert (credit Defender)

Warsim 0.8.1.9 (A bundle of all sorts, 72 features)

Hey everyone,

Continuing on from the last few updates I've been cutting away at my immeidate to-do list, we've got new vassal options, new tournament control, balanced with bluetrii fruit, and a fair lot of other stuff too. I'm also currently looking into sharing Warsim via the Imgur community and doing more research for marketing and promotion so that when we finally reach a release for Warsim out of early access I'll have a better grasp of what to do!

LET THERE BE PEACE (5 features)

Prior to this, vassals could be commanded to make war against a certain faction, or ordered to make peace with everyone. Now you can also ask them to make peace with a specific faction instead of all of them. Their reaction to this request may vary however.

* Added new option to force a vassal to make peace with a specific faction
* Reworked text for telling a vassal to make war with someone
* Added intro to requesting peace explaining the ins and outs
* Added 15 possible random reactions to telling a vassal to make peace depending on leader personality
* Added ability to choose not to order a vassal to declare war on anyone and exit out of attack menu (previously no escape option)

TOURNAMENT IMPROVEMENTS (6 features)

When you ran a grand tournament in the arena all of your personal champions are automatically entered and at most one will survive, you may not want this so now you will be allowed to choose if you enter them or not.

* Fixed grand champion recognition not working in grand tournaments
* Added ability for you to choose if you will enter your champions into grand tournaments instead of automatically entering them
* Added ability to enter all champions into grand tournament instead of choosing for all individually
* Added ability to refuse all champions entering into grand tournament without having to manually decline all
* Fixed text bug with grand tournament intro
* Fixed spacing line bug with grand tournament intro

NEW KINGDOM TYPE (1 feature)

I was watching a documentary on Alexander the great and saw mention of the somewhat independent rulers within the persian empire, now these little kingdom types are added to our ever growing list of possible titles, see the rest here https://github.com/Huw2k8/warsim/wiki/Kingdom-Types-and-Leadership-Titles

* Added new kingdom type 'Satrapy' with ruler 'Satrap' and lord 'Warlord' available for Civ level 4 or above

BLUETRII BALANCES (11 features)

We had several Bluetrii fruit related unbalances recently so I've tried my best to rebalance them in game and remove some clever exploits. While I was looking through the Bluetrii farm I made some changes and improvements too.

* Added new finite level of Bluetrii available from unowned fruit farm (credit Caccio72)
* Added random new fruit grown in farm per year between 0-15 barrels (credit Caccio72)
* Set default starting Bluetrii barrels available in magic farm at 100
* Rebalanced Bluetrii fruit Blackmarket stall prices now sold at 20 gold instead of 30 and bought at 4 gold instead of 10 to fix bluetrii sale exploit (credit u/the_fearmancer)
* Fixed text bug for owned bluetrii farm intro
* Added buying bluetrii farm turns over most of the stocked fruit to you instead of you starting with nothing

* Added new screen for destroying snowfolk village
* Added new loot chest for destroying snowfolk village
* Fixed destroying snowfolk village skipped to visiting ruins screen

POLISHING THE DRYLANDS (6 features)

I went through and combed the Drylands region fo the south for any issues or possible improvements, not too much to be done here but I did find a few things.

* Added new sound effect for discovering coastal wall
* Fixed text bug with no nomad mercs available option in nomad camp
* Fixed issues with discovering demon gate text split
* Fixed demon gate title line text bug
* Fixed 3 text bugs for already discovered coastal wall
* Fixed 5 text bugs in coastal wall text

THE LONG SERPENT IMPROVED (12 features)

In the Blackmarkets docks random ships appear each year, one of those is the long serpent, a vessel filled with demon fighting warriors who love a good drink. Previously when you met the crew of this ship they gave a dialogue inviting you to join them for a drink, but this was just text... now you can actually drink with them when invited. I've also improved as much as I can to the ship and its inhabitants.

* Added ability to drink with the long serpent crew when invited to (up to 3 drinks)

* Added 2 New vampire names 'Spalacula, Spulacula'

Hey everyone,

So this update was going to be a general update, then it was looking more like it was going to be a throne room update, then a little while after the militia master plans popped up and got added, so now it's a mix of the three. Lots of new content and gameplay changes here!

MILITIA MASTERS EXTENDED (40 features)

Previously the militia, your main source of peasant hired recruits and sometimes a valuable defense assistant had little in the way of randomisation. The militia unit price would vary game to game and change over time and the leader of the militia always had a unique face and name but beyond that there was very little in the way of unique change. Now there are 20 different traits that the militia leaders can have, these vastly impact the militias functionality and variation.

* Added new system of random traits for militia masters
* Added ability to see militia masters trait from the diplomacy screen under militia
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Recruiter - +10% more militia peasants recruited'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Recruiter+ - +25% more militia peasants recruited'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Recruiter++- +50% more militia peasants recruited'

* Added Militia Leader trait 'Strength+ - +10 Battlescore to militia units'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Strength++ - +20 Battlescore to militia units'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Cheap - 5 gold per unit, 10% less recruits'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Cheap+ - 3 gold per unit, 25% less recruits'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Cheap++ - 1 gold per unit, half recruits'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Free - free units, half recruits'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Bulked - +5 gold to unit cost, +10 Battlescore'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Bulked+ - +10 gold to unit cost, +20 Battlescore'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Bulked++ - +15 gold to unit cost, +30 Battlescore'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Workers - Cannot hire militia units, they earn 1 gold each per year for you'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Soldierly - Hired militia units are soldiers not peasants'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Public - Militia spread the word, +1 public op per turn'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Low Barrier- 2x as many recruits, -10 Battlescore'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Grubber - +1 to militia cost per year (max of 45 gold)'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Grubber+ - +2 to militia cost per year (max of 45 gold)'
* Added Militia Leader trait 'Terrible - only 1-2 recruits per year'
* Added system to prevent new leader copying old leaders trait accidentally
* Added 1/15 chance end of turn event with new leader
* Added random end of turn event 'Militia leader found dead'
* Added random end of turn event 'Militia leader missing'

* Added new screen for orderign militia to defend
* Added new screen for ordering militia to attack

THRONE ROOM EXPANSION (24 features)

I recently wrote myself a little guidance tool for adding new throne room encounters as the system is very big at the moment and with Warsim there are so many different systems to remember in those 500'000 lines of game code that I sometimes forget. With my new guidance I set out to add a bundle of new throne room encounters to refresh things a little bit!

* Added new throne room encounter 'man wants to join army cause his cousin did'
* Added new throne room encounter 'man wants to join army to avenge recently dead father'
* Added new throne room encounter 'man wants to join army as seer in his dream told him to'

* Added goblin gift encounters have 9/10 chance of being item of 10 gold or less in value

Previously goblins had no reaction to being thanked, I've now added this new section with 10 random reactions.

* Added new throne room room reaction section for thanking goblins
* Added goblin grins and hops away reaction
* Added goblin smiles and bows reaction

Warsim 0.8.2.1 (Natural disasters and savage recognition, 54 features)

Hey everyone,

So this is quite a general update, we've got 2 new throne room encounters, recognition for defeating the Wildwood savages, better natural disasters and barren land recovery, improvements to village champions, improvements to the champion hire system and a bunch more stuff!

SAVAGE RECOGNITION (6 features)

When wiping out the up to 4 savage locations in Wildwood, once destroyed there is no change in the responses from the other local savage hating factions, now they recognise you differently if you've wiped the savages out! Cheers Defender

* Added new tracker for if you've wiped savages out in Wildwood (credit Defender)
* Added new intro to Bgax when visiting Goblinwood for the first time if you've wiped savages out in Wildwood (credit Defender)
* Added new alt answer when asking Dulief of the Hunters Rest about local savages if you've wiped savages out in Wildwood (credit Defender)
* Added new alt answer when asking Geks advisor of Goblinwood about local savages if you've wiped them out (credit Defender)
* Added new alt answer when asking Geks advisor of Goblinwood about Hunters rest if you've wiped savages out (credit Defender)
* Added new intro to Dulief of Hunters rest if you wipe out savages (credit Defender)

NATURAL DISASTERS & BARREN LAND (12 features)

The systems involving barren land have been a bit of an afterthought until now. There are also random disaster events that have a 1 in 75 chance of happening each turn, previously these were just small bits of text in your end of turn report but now they are full on events with their own screens and sound effects.

* Added new special event screen for random hurricane with sfx
* Added new special event screen for random magical cloud with sfx
* Added new special event screen for random landslide with sfx
* Added new special event screen for random earthquake with sfx
* Added new special event screen for random volcanic eruption with sfx
* Added new special event screen for random act of god with sfx
* Added new special event screen for random lightning with sfx
* Added new special event screen for random meteor with sfx
* Added new special event screen for random tornado with sfx
* Added new screen instead of single line of text for terraforming barren land
* Added 5 random possible terraform graphics for terraform screen
* Made it so that natural disaster events will cannot wipe your last land out

CHAMPION HIRE COLOUR SYSTEM (1 feature)

I added this system somewhat whimfully, I was hiring a champion from this screen but felt it would be much easier if there was a visual stimulus showing the range of champions and their values. Initially I went with a smaller range of colours but expanded it and am happy with the results!

* Added a new colour system breaking down the higher and lower skilled champions on the giant 16 champion hire list
* Dark red for champions with under 50 battlescore
* Red for champions under 75 battlescore
* Dark grey for champions under 100 battlescore
* Grey for champions under 150 battlescore
* Dark green for champions under 175 battlescore
* Green for champions under 200 battlescore
* White for champions 200 battlescore and beyond

This is what it was it used to look like - https://i.imgur.com/h5FcBmY.png

This is the new one - https://i.imgur.com/VemrBZd.png

A pair of decent ones but not a promising line up - https://i.imgur.com/QBTh1gD.png

Oof nothing good but definitely some bad choices - https://i.imgur.com/ODOZnQ0.png

There he is, Neal the Legend, 200 battlescore - https://i.imgur.com/ztwZLKI.png

VILLAGE CHAMPION IMPROVEMENTS (6 features)

It's a small change but a nice one for continuity thanks to a commentor called Clown on Steam. Now when you compete in a village champion battle, defeating the champion will drop the village population by one. If village populations drop to below 10 people then no new champions will spawn, this is to avoid a village being beaten into exctinction by annual duels.

* Added -1 villager notification when defeating champion of Rihhm (credit Clown)
* Added -1 villager notification when defeating champion of Smallhaven (credit Clown)
* Defeating village champion now knocks down village population by 1 (credit Clown)
* Made village champions not respawn if population is below 10 in the village (credit Clown)
* Fixed text bug with already fought village champion text in Rihhm
* Fixed text bug with no one to challenge village champion text in Rihhm

ORC NAME IMPROVEMENTS (2 features)

There are now 465 total orc names in game, a nice little expansion to ensure they never feel samey!

* Added 61 new orc names
* Removed 3 duplicate orc names

A FEW ENCOUNTERS MORE (2 features)

A pair of new encounters added, the more the merrier!

* Added new throne room encounter 'crazy person accuses you not being you'
* Added new throne room encounter 'Silent man'

What the hell are you staring at!? - https://i.imgur.com/z42Vlkq.png

BUGFIXES (18 features)

Quite a few bugs fixed here, thanks for the reports guys!

* Fixed Gauntlet of Frost purchase text error (credit licker98)
* Fixed emissary killed after successful diplomacy reaction screen text colour bug
* Fixed text split bug in owned wild north merc post
* Fixed 2 text bugs in Galbak the grunter turn around event
* Fixed peasants referred to as slaves in round up and burn diplomacy event
* Fixed slaves referred to as peasants in round up and burn diplomacy event
* Fixed Baiaa 25 slave yearly tribute to lock the gates still happens if Baiaa is destroyed (credit licker98)
* Fixed Baiaa 25 slave yearly tribute to lock the gates still happens if you are hostile with Baiaa
* Fixed Hyruk the Moneygrubber not paying your reward for the titan skull quest (credit Storm)
* Fixed incorrect text shown when selling bluetrii fruit (credit u/OTRainbowDash5000)
* Fixed text bug with one of the hunters rest intro screens
* Fixed ability to declare demonic kingdom even when the horde is weak (credit u/OTRainbowDash5000)
* Fixed 7 text bugs with various hunters rest options
* Fixed Goblinwood typo when entering throne room
* Fixed issue with assassination debug option in independent kingdoms
* Fixed graphic colouring bug for goblinstone encampment
* Fixed incorrect screen shown when defeating goblinstone encampment
* Fixed incorrect screen shown when defeating old ruined village encampment

EVERYTHING ELSE (7 features)

Lots of different stuff here, highly civil races will never have stupid leaders again, now when a new militia leader rises up you'll be able to see how the cost of a peasant has changed and xenophobic kingdoms have a new response screen.

* Added new human name 'Byamba'
* Made kingdoms with a civilisation level of highly civil or more don't have stupid leaders
* Added a new system that shows how much gold the militia unit hire cost has changed whenever a new militia leader arises
* Reworked soldier loses bet throne room encounter text (credit u/DeplorableCaterpilla)
* Added new indicator of gained soldiers and population drop when recruiting from Hunters Rest
* Added new screen for diplomacy action blocked by nations Xenophobia
* Added screen for destroying old ruined village savage camp in wildwood

Now instead of a small string of text this is what pops up if a certain action of diplomacy is blocked by the opposing kingdoms xenophobia - https://i.imgur.com/Tuc6KT1.png

Another small but helpful change, now you are informed what the new price is when the militia price is changed by new leadership (or in this case stayed the same). - https://i.imgur.com/mpKsnNH.png

WHAT'S NEXT

So I'm getting pretty finished with leftover smaller things to code, I'm hoping to get started with overhauling the end of turn report from being a wall of really hard to digest text and find a nicer alternative, because it really can be a valuable overview for whats gone on but it's not shown well.

Hope you're all doing good!

Cheers
