A PUDDLE OF GNOME TEARS (49 features)

After recently watching a few gnome insult battles in game I started getting insult duplicates very quickly and an otherwise funny area of the game became repetetive, I set out to drastically increase the number of insults as well as expand the insult battle system with new dynamic sounds and possible outcomes. There are now 300 total insults from around 30 or 40 prior to this update thanks almost entirely to the Warsim community taking part in the gnome insult competition!

SATYR HORNS (2 features... or 72.2 billion)

Aethyrsix sent me a new concept for his old Satyr design that was put into the game, we reworked it a bit to use ascii that would work in the game and in the process I added enough new parts that 72 billion additional Satyr faces can now be made!

SLAVE REVOLT ENHANCED (16 features)

Slave revolts felt a little bit flat before, now they are more functional and can be interacted with more in the diplomacy screen. You'll also be unable to do any diplomacy with the slave revolt while you still have slaves in your employ.

* Added rare event where slave revolt can ruin one of your territories (req 500+ slave revolt troops)

* Added new throne room celebration drunk encounter 'This isn't the tavern?'

GOBLIN THRONE ROOM VISITORS (8 features)

A CHANCE OF STUPID (5 features)

After the last release Liang Qi mentioned that it would be much better if instead of highly civil races having 0 chance of stupid leaders, there was still a chance even if rare! A very good point, the idea of things still being random enough that things aren't always clear cut is a very good thing to have! Great suggestion.

* Fixed text bug on creation of a new custom knightly order leader (credit Zaph)
* Reworked layout of order commander dialogue (credit Zaph)

Warsim 0.8.2.3 (Hidden Gnome Village, 35 features)

Hey everyone,

So after last updates new massive expansion of the gnome insult battles, I was sad that they appear only as an option in upgraded throne room entertainment acts. The only solution... a gnome village. But where could such a village go?

**Warsim 0.8.2.4 (Tournament Control Update, 15 features)**

Hey everyone,

So this is just a small update while I'm settling in to my new place, we've got a rework of tournaments, a few new possible intro menus, and some fixes and changes.

TOURNAMENT REWORK (8 features)

A lot of people have requested this, most recently u/Snipe5000 and rightly so, previously tournaments with 32 fighters took absolutely ages to watch as you HAD to watch every single fight, every single gate rising intro. It's not fun if you're not very interested in all of the fights taking place. Now new controls have been added that allow you to skip anything you don't want to see, from wanting to watch only what you've bet on, to skipping entire phases of the tournaments just to see the semi-finals and final battle. Several other bugs and tweaks are also included!

* Added new graphic for larger tournaments second phases
* Fixed Grand tournaments being referred to as 32-man tournaments in most phases
* Fixed semi finals in large tournaments being incorrectly referred to as third stage
* Fixed grand tournament not counting as tournament done and allowing more tournaments to be done
* Added ability to skip fights during tournaments
* Added ability to skip entire phases of the tournament
* Added ability to only watch fights you have a stake in
* Added ability to watch all fights as usual

- The new menu before a fight in a tournament - https://i.imgur.com/mfexb44.png

AETHYRSIX'S MENU (2 features)

For those who don't know, u/aethyrsix as he's known on reddit is the creator of the original Satyr face in game and a very accomplished Ascii artist. He's recently come up with some new menu concepts that are too great not too include in the game, now there's a 1 in 5 chance you'll see his designs on the main menu.

* Added 1/5 chance of Aethyrsix's larger menu design appearing on Warsim main menu (credit u/Aethyrsix)
* Added 1/5 chance of Aethyrsix's smaller menu design appearing on Warsim main menu (credit u/Aethyrsix)

- One of the new menu concepts that can appear - https://i.imgur.com/Uhl5zCN.png

BUGFIXES (X features)

Thanks for the bug reports guys! Always appreciated Smiley

* Fixed Crown of Mai rebel text when slave origin chosen (credit Maboy)
* Fixed refusing to hire a champion found when exploring doesn't work (credit wuhugm)
* Fixed court musician replacing already existent musician sends you back to wrong menu (credit wuhugm)

EVERYTHING ELSE (X features)

Some new gnome names and a funny mini event involving Biggleroll in the Gnome Village.

* Added 1 in 15 chance of funny random event when playing Biggleroll in tavern (Bongleroll) (credit Cat)
* Added 5 new gnome names 'Zoggy, Toop, Friggle, Peep, Neeb'

WHAT'S NEXT

I'm still getting sorted out moving in but next week I hope to get working on the end of turn report, I've got some things planned for a rework and an extra feature I'm hoping to add to it.

Hope everyone's doing alright Smiley

Hey guys,

So I just wanted to say a big thank you to the Warsim community, I certainly never expected to be working full time making a text-based kingdom management game in 2020.

Game development has been a dream job since early childhood and I never figured it actually possible just a nice idea. Now seeing all the comments, the reviews, the great ideas and reported bugs, I'm always humbled by it.

For the longest time I couldn't believe people were interested in the game, it was released on itch.io for free in 2016 and a small number of people downloaded and played it. Occasionally I'd even get the odd donation from players which always blew my mind. Warsim was a much more primitive and unpolished game back then (You can play the 2015 version by going to your Warsim directory and finding the Extras folder and then the Warsim Classic Edition (2015) folder)

After a few years it ended up on steam, since then the game has grown far beyond mine or probably anyone else's expectation with us recently passing 22'000 copies sold since late 2017 when the game was released.

I can't thank you guys enough, I've put my heart and soul into this game but it's so filled with the help, feedback, and talent of many others who I owe a lot of gratitude to.

So in summary, Thank you everyone. I love you guys and I will keep working to make this game the best it possibly can be as we approach a possible early access release in 2021. The game is selling enough copies that I can more or less sustain myself while I develop so I'm not rushing anything.

Cheers everyone <3

Text based graphics are my favorite. I like the black background and how there are colored text-characters. I know Games like this have lots of coding. This looks very great.

Hey Everyone,

So I'm glad to finally get this one out, it's been a grind to get through it but I've gone through every single end of turn event in the whole game and reworked them all, created several new report systems, totally reworked how the demon horde works, as well as a number of other tweaks and fixes. Thank you all for the continued support and I hope you enjoy the update!

END OF TURN REPORT UPDATE (8 features)

This was the primary focus of the update though as a result of this many things were added and changed as per the categories below. The main changes are the convoluted and disorganised end of turn report we're all used to is now customisable and much more legible!

* Added new end of turn report choice screen (three reports, simple, advance, custom)
* Added simple turn report showing summarised report
* Added advanced turn report showing all events of the year
* Added custom report where parts can be enabled/disabled/customised
* Added ability to choose a report to see each turn instead of choice
* Added staff quitting without being paid now has a pop up screen (credit 'Napalm Sticks To Kids')
* Added new end of turn report note for demonic wipeout thunderstorm event
* Added less chance of soldiers fleeing demons end of turn event if you have high public opinion

New choice of end of turn reports - https://i.imgur.com/WM8X1Ff.png

Staff quitting - https://i.imgur.com/RUv7r6q.png

NEW END OF TURN EVENTS (2 features)

While working through things I added a few new possible events at the end of the turn

* Added rare 1 in 100 chance of undead spawn event (between 150-3150 undead)
* Added rare event of loyal warrior winning a peasant tournament in your honour giving +2 public opinion

END OF TURN TWEAKS (18 features)

While trawling through all the end of turn events in the game there were a few things that needed to be fixed or tweaked or updated.

* Reworked interest in end of turn report to show total bank balance
* Added indicator of how much staff skill is after improvement in turn report
* Made vampire debug mode it's own section on end of turn report
* Reduced cost per goblin head of Goblin scourge law from 10 gold to 4 gold
* Reworded Blackmarket tax end of turn event to be clearer
* Added info of how many miners returned in mine dried up event
* Made end of turn units fleeing to and from rebellion reports show actual troop changes
* Made overflowing prison resulting in released prisoners increase bandit level by 1
* Added visible public opinion change for statue of yourself events in end of turn report
* Added notification of how many properties you are recieving income from in Darkdale
* Reworked independent kingdom getting civil event text (credit Cat)
* Added notification in turn report when slavers fort is destroyed in slave revolt
* Shortened ex-slave joiner end of turn event length
* Scrapped old end of turn code allowing independent kingdoms to recruit troops from your guilds
* Reworked Bandit horde robbery events to show bandit horde instead of just bandits to clear confusion
* Made all goblins join you from goblin clan goblin staff event show how many goblins join
* Fixed layout bug with Krut and Erak troop spy reports
* Removed obsolete end of turn bar that says 'Aslona stats'

DEMON HORDE REWORK (12 features)

One big part of the end of turn update that I passed was the demon attack event, each turn the demon horde if active would find a random living faction (more likely the more land it has) and would attack them, be it killing a small number of troops, destroying a single trade caravan and losing them some gold, or rarely... destroying a territory. In hindsight this made the demon horde incredibly weak in everything other than defence, this world destroying army barely did anything when active, well now that has changed.

It's been in my plans for quite some time to overhaul it and as it was linked to the end of turn report I figured now would be as good a time as any. The demons now have up to three attacks per turn when active, the more attacks they do the more divided the attack force is, so 3 attacks from a horde of 1500 demons would make each force 500 strong. These demonic groups will no longer pester caravans or kill small numbers of peasants, each of the up to 3 attacks per turn will always be invasions. The demons will fight with the defending forces and try to kill them all and ruin the land. Now when the demon army rises they will shake up the world, killing and destroying factions and causing problems for everyone but more so for larger factions.

* Added demon horde get up to 3 attacks per turn dividing their troops by how many attacks
* Added special screen for demon horde attacking your lands
* Added special screen for demon horde destroying your last land
* Added special screen for demon horde destroying another faction
* Added 1 in 15 chance that factions will abandon a land rather than defend against demons
* Added 6 dynamic possible screens for demon horde pushed back depending on how many demons they've lost
* Added -10 bandit level if demons destroy Bandit Horde
* Added -3 bandit level if demons destroy a minor bandit gang
* Fixed northern hall bug that prevented demon horde from doing anything
* Added 5 random graphics for ruined land at the hands of demons
* Added code to prevent demons attacking pro-demon kingdoms
* Added code to show demonic attacks as good events if you're a demonic king

Those demons are at it again - https://i.imgur.com/GAsfC96.png

The Demons are at the gate! - https://i.imgur.com/l6QWfWW.png

TROOP RECRUITMENT REWORKED (12 features)

While working through the end of turn stuff I had a chance to review the troop recruitment system and buffed everyone to be able to keep up with you. Normal modifiers to recruitment for these groups still apply but now by default and even more with higher difficulties these groups will all recruit much faster.

* Increased default rebel recruitment from 0-10 troops per land to 0-20

Hey Everyone,

So I've been in the middle of another house move recently but had this update loaded ready to go save for a few things for a few days now. There is no major focus but lots of new content and fixes and reworks.

MYSTERY AND WONDER (3 features)

When you start a new game and are told of the races in your world there is a random slightly different one of ten different rock and water images picked, they aren't great. I've replaced them with a new shared set of 20 random background graphics used for discovering new lands, I've reworked them and added plenty more for variety so that now it makes the introduction screen a bit different.

* Reworked new game world full of mystery and wonder screen graphic
* Added 10 new alternate graphics for new game world and discovering new lands screens
* Reworked several new game world and discovering new lands screens

One of the new intro screens - https://i.imgur.com/vIfUYDg.png

And another - https://i.imgur.com/MRHm5iF.png

And one more - https://i.imgur.com/lGsV5PG.png

And another for luck - https://i.imgur.com/0eKcKBf.png

Last one I promise - https://i.imgur.com/6acu75T.png

Oh go on, one more - https://i.imgur.com/dTUO9MP.png

RIHHMPROVEMENTS (11 features)

See what I did there... Rihhm-provem... ah nevermind, so while working on the wiki page for the village of Rihhm I found several things that needed fixing or weren't fully completed.

* Added +10 relation with Rihhm from starting trade route
* Added -10 relation with Rihhm for ending trade route
* Added -5 relation with Rihhm from demanding tribute
* Added +5 relation with Rihhm for ending tribute
* Made it so Rihhm elder will not speak to you if relation is lower than -5 instead of lower than 0
* Fixed Old Storyteller's Hut text bug in Rihhm
* Fixed random quest text incorrectly referring to Rihhm and Smallhaven
* Fixed bug when attacking Uktak village after having beaten Rihhm villages champion causing unexpected issues with the Arena
* Fixed Elder Atik angry introduction text bug
* Fixed tie in snail race screen
* Fixed tie in snail race with bet cancelled screen

New relation change effects with Rihhm - https://i.imgur.com/L6lsidA.png

SMALLHAVEN FIXES (9 features)

Not as catchy as the above header but I also had a few things to fix and improve in Smallhaven!

* Fixed text bug in Smallhaven trade route cancel screen
* Added indicator for trade route started and ended with smallhaven
* Added indicator for tribute started and ended with Smallhaven
* Added +10 relation with Smallhaven from starting trade route
* Added -10 relation with Smallhaven for ending trade route
* Added -5 relation with Smallhaven from demanding tribute
* Added +5 relation with Smallhaven for ending tribute
* Fixed 2 text bugs in tribute cancellation text with Smallhaven
* Fixed 3 text bugs in tribute starting text with Smallhaven

MILITIA EXPLOIT REVOKED (12 features)

So u/TheGamingDictator brought to my attention a pretty surprising exploit that I'd totally missed. After the update to militia leaders there were 20 possible perks militia leaders could have, there were four that over-ride normal militia peasant hire prices to reduce the cost to either 5 gold, 3 gold, 1 gold, or completely free of charge. However what I clearly didn't consider is that the price over-ride only happened during the buying process and for selling peasants back to the militia it just showed half of the non-overriden price meaning you could be getting 100 free peasants, selling them back for 10 gold each and then getting those 100 back again from free, repeatedly for an infinite horde of wealth. Needless to say it's now fixed along with several other changes.

* Added Militia leaders face and name to hiring units in troop hire screen
* Added Militia leaders face and name to selling units in troop hire screen
* Fixed free militia units description text bug
* Fixed Terrible Leader militia perk incorrectly refering to helper militia leader perk
* Fixed 'Militia master hands takes the gold' text bug in militia hire screen text
* Fixed Exploit for getting peasants for free from militia leader and selling them back for profit repeatedly (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Fixed Exploit for getting peasants worth 1, 3, or 5 gold and selling them back for way more repeatedly exploitable (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added new alternate screen for giving troops to the militia for free (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added peasants being sold at 1 gold each cannot be sold back only given for free (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added peasants being sold at 5 gold are sold back at 3 gold each instead of exploit level cost (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added peasants being sold at 3 gold are sold back at 1 gold each instead of exploit level cost (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added alternate selling screen when selling troops to militia via militia diplomacy screen

Now you'll see the Militia leaders face when buying and selling troops to him - https://i.imgur.com/Uauo6JQ.png

A new option when trying to sell peasants to a militia that sells them for 1 gold (you can only give them for free) - https://i.imgur.com/Jl6cbZf.png

NEW CONTENT (3 features)

Always good to keep the game fresh with plenty of new content. The name Halbazaar was inspired by this song's catchy chorus -



* Added 5 new human names 'Halbazaar, Balgazaar, Bulgazaar, Kralbazaar, Spactazaar'
* Added new book to the old library in the artifact market 'The Blah Blah Ballad of Bal-Balah' (credit u/obviousllamainshoes)

* Added new name suffix 'The Craterborn' (+35 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'The Craterwalker' (+20 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'The Wastewhisperer' (+23 battlescore)

A FEW LAUGHS MORE (4 features)

Well you probably won't be laughing at these but here are a few new jokes that can be said by any in game jester in your court or in the wider world.

* Added new joke 'Cold night broomstick'
* Added new joke 'Magic Bee'
* Added new joke 'Close eyed wizard'
* Added new joke 'Big Hat wizard'

DIALOGUE IMPROVEMENTS (4 features)

Still working through adding things to the wiki and while documenting all the dialogues in the game I see many that aren't perfect or have errors in them, also opportunities for extra dialogues and expansions.

* Added new question 'What's with the Vomit Hole?' for Gboo of the Human's Toe Tavern
* Reworked 4 dialogues for Gboo of the Human's Toe Tavern
* Fixed text bug in Gboo of the Human's Toe Tavern fight break up text
* Fixed 2 text bugs in Gboo of the Human's Toe Tavern dialogue options menu

BUGFIXES (15 features)

* Fixed Smallhaven sound continuing after leaving the village (credit u/TheGamingDictator)

EVERYTHING ELSE (2 features)

There was an issue TGD weirdoo pointed out which made your end of turn report appear to misreport your income as it merged bank interest with your earned sum, now it's displayed separately in the end of turn report to make it much clearer.

* Reworked bank interest report in end of turn report to be separate from normal gained gold (credit [TGD]weirdoo)
* Added indicator of neutral leaders lack of effect in diplomacy odds

And old report for income and how its displayed now - https://i.imgur.com/n3W8sUl.png

Hey guys,

I'm putting this out there Warsim is currently 40% off on steam and itch.io for the winter sale.

You can find the game on sale on steam here - https://store.steampowered.com/app/659540/Warsim_The_Realm_of_Aslona/?beta=0

You can find the game on sale on itch.io here - https://itch.io/s/43488/warsim-winter-sale-40-off

Warsim is a deep and rich text based kingdom management game unlike anything else. Complete with charming ASCII graphics, navigate the millions of different procedurally generated races, events and areas with a huge emphasis on player choice. Don't let its look fool you, there is depth in every direction.

A bigger breakdown of some of it's actual features are as follows:

* A huge explorable world with 100s of unique locations including hidden cities, giant markets filled with tons of stuff to do and lots of randomisation and tons more
* A throne room where you are tasked with talking to and dealing with the people of your realm, depending on your kingdom size it could be 10 people or 1000s. You will encounter gamblers, bards, tricksters, goblins, mercenaries, common folk, beggars and tons of others froma  pool of 1000s and 1000s of different dynamic encounters.
* A procedural fantasy race system that has been in development for years through a mix of my own work and lots of help from the Warsim community and now can produce exactly 94,887,852 possible races. Which pretty much ensures all the races seen in your gameworld will never been seen again. You might find Seafaring Goblins, Fire Orcs, Eyeless Elves, Orange Ogretaurs, Inbred Trench Dwarves, and millions more races you couldn't imagine!
* A procedural face generator with over 100 Quadrillion possible faces that are unique and distinct race by race!
* A dynamic arena in your kingdom where heroes rise and fall, there is much you can do here if you own it including hosting tournaments and setting rules. It can also be found in many states and sizes
* Tons of mini games such as snail racing, a mini dnd game, animal pit fighting and at least 10+ others you can find in taverns and locations around the world, or you can hire a gamemaster to play them directly from your throne room.
* There are also absolutely abysmally terrible procedurally generated bards, including Goblin Drummers, Orc Grunters, Gnome Whistlers, and Vampyric lute players. I'm not going to pretend they are good but they are funny!
* The ability to send your men to find monsters from the depths of the world you can train and fight with other monsters, with 27'000 possible monsters and 45 different opponents. (this feature was player suggested)
* The ability to get absolutely hammered in one of the 15+ taverns of the world, my personal favourite being goblin taverns due to their 'vomit holes'
* And honestly a lot more than this

The game has been in development for 5 years and still has a ton more work to go, it has sold over 24'000 copies on itch.io and steam and has been supported by audiogames members the whole time.

The game is usually $7.99 but is reduced to $4.79 as it's 40% off

I'm happy to answer any questions you guys may have

Cheers guys
