Hey everyone,

I recently went looking through steam data and was blown away when I realised just how many countries Warsim
is being played in. Considering how niche it is what I found was amazing.

So perhaps unsurprisingly the biggest country for Warsim copies sold is the USA accounting for more than half of all copies (Thanks mates!)

The top 10 countries for Warsim sales are:

USA - 11.6K copies
UK - 7.3K copies
Canada - 1.5k copies
Germany - 1.3k copies
Australia - 935 copies
Sweden - 403 copies
France - 381 copies
Netherlands - 327 copies
Poland - 369 copies
Finland - 259 copies

Already mind blowing!

What really blows my mind is how many different countries and regions there are where there are active Warsim players.

Each of the below countries Warsim has sold between 1-250 copies

Honduras, Morocco, Ghana, Guadeloupe, Montenegro, Mongolia, Bolivia, Algeria, Albania, El Salvador, Egypt, Kyrgyzstan, Cambodia, Moldova, Gibraltar, Guatemala, Bangladesh, Oman, Venezuela, Palestine, French Polynesia, Nepal, Trinidad and Tobago, Panama, Andorra, Macedonia, New Caledonia, Cyprus, Jamacia, Sri Lanka, Lebanon, Jersey, Kazakhstan, Brunei, Macau, Pakistan, Qatar, Guernsey, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Paraguay, Jordan, Malta, Peru, Costa Rica, Isle of Man, Guam, Bahrain, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Luxembourg, Belarus, Uruguay, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Faroe Islands, Vietnam, Latvia, Taiwan, Serbia, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Croatia, India, Lithuania, Hong Kong, Israel, Malaysia, Indonesia, Chile, Ukraine, Thailand, Mexico, South Africa, Greece, Argentina, South Korea, Estonia, Phillipines, Iceland, Turkey, Hungary, Portugal, Czechia, Romania, Japan, Singapore, China, Switzerland, Belgium, Ireland, Italy, Brazil, New Zealand, Spain, Austria, Russia, and Norway... And breathe.

Here's a map with all countries Warsim has sold copies in marked in blue - https://i.imgur.com/XUNwq4g.png

The fact that the game is even played by one person from anywhere already makes me feel complete. Thank you all wherever you are, for playing and supporting the game, it means a lot to this small little indie dev in Wales.

All the best

Warsim 0.8.3.4 (Less Bugs More Content, 185 features)

Hey Everyone,

So another update, I've been working a fair bit on some combat stuff but in the mean time between bug reports and suggestions I've been building up what has now turned into another update so here it is!

NORTHWATCH BAN (1 feature)

It's no secret that the bandits of Fort Northwatch in the North love the Thickblood Tavern, so much so that if you attack it part of the Northwatch garrison will march down and get involved sometimes. Well now thanks to a tip by TJ the fort won't be so friendly to you if you've destroyed their beloved tavern. Your options go from being able to explore the fort, buy it, watch fights, and learn more, to just being able to attack or leave.

* Added alternate screen for Fort Northwatch if you've destroyed the Thickblood Tavern (credit TJ)

The new screen for an unhappy Fort Northwatch https://i.imgur.com/5kyMntX.png

NEW GOLD INDICATORS (6 features)

Always new places gold should be reported, now we've got another big bunch sorted! Cheers TJ.

* Added current gold indicator to staff hiring main menus (credit TJ)
* Added current gold indicator to spymaster for hire screens (credit TJ)
* Added current gold indicator to jester for hire screens (credit TJ)

SOUND REDUCTION EFFORTS (5 features)

It's no secret that some of Warsim's sound effects can be a bit loud or too quiet, thanks to some recent reports I've jumped on some of the culprits and plan to do more in the future to better equalise these sounds.

* Reduced volume of Drunk Crowd sfx (credit 71)
* Reduced volume of Forge Sound 1 sfx (credit 71)
* Reduced volume of Forge Sound 2 sfx (credit 71)

WHAT'S NEXT

So I've finally finished the 100th encounter for the battle intro system, all the race related battle intro events are now complete and have their own sound effects sorted out. I'm looking into considering race prefixes next and making sure the events make sense as best I can (ie no intro event where an enemy kingdom charge in screaming if they are Mouthless Trolls)

There's still tons more to do but it's progressing nicely. I've built several systems that will be used in the battle intro events and once I'm fully finished with it all I'm going to get on with making a plan for the rest of my combat update workload.

Here are some of the new encounters:

The arrival of some demi-gods https://i.imgur.com/YjxRZSX.png

A horrible Cthuul kingdom https://i.imgur.com/KuBLWQm.png

Some Bogeymen arriving https://i.imgur.com/Dihx2X1.png

Good old gnomes, the sound effect for this is hilarious too https://i.imgur.com/YZrWKMe.png

Warsim 0.8.3.6 (The Quality of Life Update, 119 features)

Hey Everyone,

The last week and a half has been amazing, since the Overwhelmingly Positive update we've had a ton of new amazing reviews and nearly 1000 new Warsim players! To everyone new, Welcome Smiley

This update is a pretty broad one, lots of little fixes and quality of life additions. I'm still working through a mix of bug reports and backlogged suggestions while also working through the combat update plans.

NAME SUFFIX SYSTEM EXPANDED (3 features)

For a long time certain name suffixes have been able to have addons added to them 'Garbald the Sad' could also be 'Garbald the Sad Knight' or 'Garbald the Sad Raider' modified by Warsim's in-game suffix add on system. Unlike adding new name suffixes, adding new suffix addons was a harder process done only within the games code. I set out to completely replace that system and have it fully moddable and accessible just like the suffix system is, so now in a new text file called 'Name Suffix Addon.txt' in the main Warsim Data folder you can find all of the possible addons followed by the battlescore bonus they provide. While expanding this system I added a ton of new addon parts which has led to over a quarter of a million new possible random name suffix combinations. You'll see these as hirable champions, staff members, enemy rulers etc. This system is even more exciting for me because unlike the 3000ish current name suffixes, all of these will be random and unpredictable combinations that will even catch me offguard. Being caught offguard with random content in a game I've spent 5 years making and know like the back of my hand is always a bonus!

* Added new moddable system for name suffix addons
* Added 265 new name suffix addons (was 57 now 322 total) (With 1199 total modifiable name suffixes this means there are 386'078 possible random name suffix combinations now)
* Made name suffix addon system 2x more likely to be used when generating names

Some of the random names created by the new system - https://i.imgur.com/nwb460p.png

MILITIA GROWTH (2 features)

A good point was made on our discord by Paul-2020 about not being able to see Militia unit growth, I've now added mention of it to the end of turn report.

* Added ability to see how many peasants have joined the milita each year in end of turn report (credit Paul-2020)
* Added alternate text for militia recruiting a single peasant in end of turn report

New end of turn report notice - https://i.imgur.com/MzqqNlH.png

NEW KINGDOM TITLES (5 features)

Some new titles for kingdoms and their rulers and lords that can spawn in your world, thanks for the suggestions guys!

* Added 2 new rare king titles 'The Sleeping God' and 'The Dead God' 1 in 1000 chance of appearing as a king title (credit Pathfinder)
* Added new kingdom type 'Pact' with ruler 'Grand Master' and lord 'Pact Maker' avaialble for civ level 3 and above (credit Pathfinder)
* Added new kingdom type 'Alliance' with ruler 'Overseer' and lord 'Guardian' avaialble for civ level 4 and above (credit Pathfinder)
* Added new kingdom type 'Tyranny' with ruler 'Tyrant' and lord 'Underling' avaialble for civ level 3 and above (credit 5HO)
* Added new kingdom type 'Cult' with ruler 'Great One' and lord 'Worshipper' available for civ level 3 and above (credit Pathfinder)

SUDDEN DEATH IMPROVED (4 features)

A few fixes to the games text and now a much better option to forfeit the game with it's own screen, thanks Prof Nonagon for pointing it out!

* Fixed 10 text bugs in sudden death game text
* Added indicators of gold changed and gained for opponent when winning and losing sudden death
* Added new screen for forfeiting sudden death game
* Fixed forfeiting sudden death game made the bet money disappear (credit Prof Nonagon)

ATTACK SCREEN IMPROVEMENTS (5 features)

A couple of improvements to the attack screen where you choose who to fight, including the ability to now change your mind and attack someone else or no one.

* Added ability to back out of an attack in the raid/invade/skirmish screen of main combat (credit Vlyn)
* Fixed bug with trying to attack nonexistent undead horde skipping your turn in combat
* Fixed bug with trying to attack goblin horde when not active skipping your turn in combat
* Fixed combat phase skipping bug
* Removed redundant error messages for attacking dead factions in combat screen

New option on attack screens - https://i.imgur.com/uh90VfX.png

DOMAIN NAMES IMPROVED (2 features)

I'm not talking about .com's here, there's a rare chance that a kingdom of gnomes could end up being called "Dibble's Domain" however this system was bugged and resulted in a lot of these 'Domain' names not coming out as intended. After a surpring number of 'fixes' not actually fixing it I managed to get it all sorted. I don't see these names too often in game as there's a 1 in 60 odds of them appearing in the 5 kingdoms you get per game. I've decided to make it a much higher 1 in 6 odds so you'll be seeing these a little more often.

* Fixed issue with 'domain' based kingdom names generating brokenly ie "'s Domain"
* Made domain based names 10x more common

TROOP TREE IMPROVEMENTS (3 features)

When vieiwing the troop tree of independent kingdoms you will now be able to compare them with your own and see more information.

* Reworked troop tree screen in independent kingdom diplomacy
* Added the option to compare your default 3 troop tiers with independent kingdoms in diplomacy (u/videovillain)
* Added colour changing breakdown depending on if troops in the same tier are greater, worse, or the same as eachother

A troop tree with units all worse than your default units - https://i.imgur.com/bpxXXyW.png

A troop tree with units all better - https://i.imgur.com/FZuQ4Su.png

A mixed troop tree - https://i.imgur.com/OEAcT3C.png

Warsim 0.8.3.7 (The Birthday Update, 260 features)

Hey Everyone,

So tomorrow (monday) is my 26th Birthday. A few weeks ago in preparation for this I figured it would be nice if I did a little 26 feature update to celebrate, but ended up instead aiming for 260 features, which has had been a ton of work. I decided to focus the main effort of the update on the complete rework of the second region of the Eastern lands, known as the Lost Jungle. Until now in my opinion it's one of the worst regions for having basically nothing worth doing there, so I've tried to change that.

LOST JUNGLE OVERHAUL

The new lost jungle - https://i.imgur.com/uSQDMOl.png

RANDOMLY GENERATED PROTOFOLK VILLAGES (44 features)

The crowning gem of the region are the up to two villages of Protofolk (cavemen) people who can occupy the region. These randomly generated tribes can be made up many different types that all have different effects and functions. You may find a tribe of hostile Protofolk who battle monsters in a central monster pit, or a tribe of dumb Protofolk who paint everything blue... Or maybe no tribes at all, just ruins.

JUNGLE TEMPLE REWORKED (9 features)

The jungle temple, for any who previously discovered it, was an unfinished puzzle that didn't work and led to a number of people trying to solve it (sorry guys). I've now reworked everything and made a new solvable puzzle with an interesting set of rewards, good luck!

EVERYTHING ELSE

Beyond the Lost Jungle there were also plenty of bug fixes, new features, and new content to get us to that big old 260 number, so here they are.

MUSHROOM MEN REWORKED (3 features)

Warsim discord member LeMachinga sent in a very interesting set of redesign concepts for the current Mushroom men face generator. I looked over them and compared and his version was in my opinion, better than the default. So I set out to rework the mushroom faces to fit his design, and in the process beefed up the generator to have an extra 1.44 billion new faces. As a thanks for his contribution to the mushroom men design, one of the random possible mushroom man character names is Mushinga, a reference to LeMachinga. Thanks mate! Smiley

* Redesigned mushroom men faces based on LeMachinga's version of them (credit LeMachinga)
* Added 1.44 billion new mushroom men faces (was 1.63 billion, now 3.07 billion)
* Added new mushroom man name 'Mushinga' (reference to LeMachinga)

The new mushy boys - https://i.imgur.com/LMsZ4Bv.png

THRONE ROOM MANAGEMENT IMPROVED (3 features)

After a discord discussion between LeMachinga and LeechGirl the idea to allow a maximum number of visitors to the throne room was raised. It's a great suggestion and adds to our recent option to send away a custom number of visitors. Now players can set any limit they want and each year if the number of visitors exceeds this they will be sent away.

* Added new ability to set a maximum limit of visitors to the throne room (credit LeMachinga)
* Added screen for setting a maximum visitor limit higher than current visitors resulting in some being kicked out
* Relabelled the '4) Send away some or all of the throne room visitors' to '4) Manage the number of visitors' to fit better

* Added ability to convert slave soldiers into slaves using the slave pen upgrade (credit TJ)

NAME SUFFIXES THAT CAN BE FURTHER RANDOMISED (37 features)

* Made 'the Repugnant' name suffix able to be expanded on

NEW LOOT (52 features)

With all the new locations where you can get loot, why not add another huge trove of it to keep things ever fresh!

Hey Everyone,

So it's been quite some time since the last release and that feels terribly uncomfortable for me if I'm being honest, but it's been for the greater good of getting this combat update progressed. In the last month the combat update has gone from about 15% done to 28% done and I'm gearing up for getting it to the point where I could potentially pre-release it to be tested and played by everyone which will be exciting.

As for this update, this is a collection of all sorts of side things worked on alongside this month. The majority of this stuff has come from discussion in the community forums/discord/subreddit and bug reports. Thanks everyone who lurks or is active in the community and those who've recently discovered Warsim, it's always very motivational to see all the activity and discussion!

CUSTOM GAME SETTINGS REWORKED (21 features)

The custom game option is meant to allow players to start a game that is customised and tweaked to their liking, but in many ways this custom game system was lacking. I've reorganised it a bit and added a bunch of new features such as, the ability to tweak the arena, and to start the game owning Darkdale, Blackmarket, and the Arena. As well as lots more customisation with the bandit horde and bandit gangs.

* Rewrote main text for custom game mode options
* Added new category system for custom game mode options
* Rewrote demon horde custom settings text

* Added ability to have bandit horde huge (5x default troops)
* Added ability to have bandit horde empire (9x default troops)
* Added ability to have bandit horde small (half usual troops and size)
* Added 30 to the max bandits that can spawn per territory for minor bandit gangs at game start
* Added 8 to the max warlords that can spawn per territory for minor bandit gangs at game start
* Added new option for even bigger demon horde spawn (2500 demons at game start)
* Added indicators of how many demons each option of demon horde size includes
* Removed goblin settings bug option allowing rebels to be disabled

BANDIT HORDE FRIENDSHIP (11 features)

When you have a truce and a good relationship with the Bandit Horde, why not see some benefits of it. Now the bandits may occasionally send you gifts, but much more so if you have a higher relation. Gifts could include, a cut of gold from a raid, some goblin slaves, a new bandit hero as your champion, and more!

* Added chance of Bandit Horde sending you a gift if you have a truce with them
* Added a tiered system with much higher odds of gifts depending on how high your relation with them is (10 tiers)

FRIEND OF THE MERRY MEN (6 features)

When bandit gangs form, there are many types of bandit they could be. Most are better are recruiting, or more vicious, or steal more, but Merry Men and Honest Men are your more Robin Hood types. TJ suggested having them be recruitable if you had 100 public opinion. Now you'll have the option and if they do join you, there's a chance the leader will offer to join you as a champion.

* Added ability to attempt to recruit minor bandit gang if they are Merry Men or Honest Men and you have 100 public opinion (credit TJ)

* Added indicator of total exploration changes on the main game menu (credit Neceros)

The new main screen notifications - https://imgur.com/S1UVoWF

BRAWL PIT UPGRADE COST CHANGES (2 features)

After a discussion with Themastaman it was made clear that 40k of upgrades and sometimes less than 500 gold per turn in profit isn't a good mix at all. I've reduced the prices by a fair bit to make it a bit more balance.

* Reduced cost of Brawl Pit size upgrade from 10k to 5k (credit Themastaman)
* Reduced cost of Brawl Pit Aesthetic upgrade from 10k to 2.5k (credit Themastaman)

WHAT'S NEXT

I'm returning to combat update stuff next week and am going to start looking at the fundementals of having the new combat system merged into the game with the current standard combat. I'm expecting some issues but if I can get it to work I could potentially get this early combat rework released much earlier than previously planned. This will be exactly what I've been sharing in combat update screenshots and posts but not much more than that.

Once It's released I'm looking forward to the feedback and of course from then on any combat update work won't be hidden away but will be released like regular updates. I'm giving myself 2 weeks to get this combat merge done but it could be longer depending on how things go.

I'm excited about the idea of it though!

Thanks for reading and I hope everyone is doing well Smiley

The Arena was once the heart of the games one on one combat, but in the time since it's addition years ago, brawling/scorpion pit fights and more have been added, and all of them have been displayed a lot better than the Arena, despite the Arena being a huge centre piece. This has always bothered me but I've never had the chance to do anything about it and so have been saving a list of ideas and suggestions for the Arena for a while. I ended up here by mistake as I was working on some Arena bugs and got so deep in I figured... well, I'm here now, might as well overhaul it.

There are tons of different features and additions in this update and it's taken a lot of work, but I'm very happy to be able to finally show it, I hope you guys enjoy! Smiley

THE ARENA REMASTERED (53 features)

* Added system to make it 5x more likely for much weaker units to win fights they ordinarily would not (Example Soldier vs Peasant previously would be 99 wins for soldier, 1 for peasant, it's now 95 for soldier, 5 for peasant via my tests)
* Added new system for Pacifist units in the Arena (they will no longer fight)

SLAVE GAUNTLET (4 features)

While working through my old Arena plans I saw a suggestion for a slave gauntlet by UltimateBlade from the Audiogames forums, It looked like a cool idea so why not. Now as long as you own the Arena and have 8 slave soldiers you can host a tournament for their freedom, and your profit. It will differ from normal tournaments in the way that you can't bet, and that it makes you money instead of costing it. This could be yet another avenue for profit for an unscrupulous evil ruler, or a slave baron.

* Added a new tournament type 'Slave Gauntlet' (Only if you own the Arena and if you have 8 slave soldiers) (credit UltimateBlade from Audiogames)
* Added new scenes and text for Slave Gauntlet
* Added -1 public opinion drop for running a slave gauntlet
* Added between 100-1500 gold profit for hosting a slave gauntlet in your Arena

THE EXECUTION OF A CHAMPION (27 features)

A nice suggestion from Anarcho-Raoism on our discord for executing champions got me thinking, so I present to you a new system with lots of outcomes and randomisation!

* Added the option to execute a grand champion (Credit Anarcho-raoism)
* Added 15 different reactions from arena owner (if not owned by you) depending on their personality
* Added begging for exile outcome (includes option to exile instead of execute)
* Added take my gold outcome (includes of option to accept gold and exile instead of execute)
* Added crying champion outcome
* Added stone cold expression outcome
* Added laughing at death outcome
* Added suicide outcome
* Added Last stand outcome
* Added chance of random 0-2 public opinion loss when executing champion
* Added +3 public opinion loss if champion has 30+ wins
* Added +2 public opinion loss if champion has 15+ wins
* Added +1 public opinion loss if champion has 5+ wins
* Added lesser public opinion loss for exile
* Added new blurb for hall of fame beheaded champions
* Added new blurb for hall of fame exiled champions
* Added new blurb for hall of fame suicide champions
* Added new blurb for hall of fame last stand champions
* Added 1/30 odds of Arena being destroyed in peasant riot in aftermath of execution
* Added 1/30 odds of small riot happening
* Added 1/30 odds of small protest happening
* Added odds of protest/riot/destruction much higher if public opinion is very low
* Added odds of protest/riot/destruction 25% less likely if public opinion is above 50
* Added odds of protest/riot/destruction are more likely if champion has lots of wins
* Added 5 different comments from Arena owner if unowned arena is destroyed
* Added option to choose who replaces champion if you own the arena

A LIMITED OCCURANCE (7 features)

Infinite fights per year was a bit excessive, and also allowed the cherry picking of when to bet and when not to. Now each year there will be a limited number of fights in the Arena depending on the size of the Arena. This won't be very noticable at the higher level of Arenas unless you are an arena fanatic.

* Added new limit of total number of fights in the Arena

15 Fights to go - https://i.imgur.com/CIYvaxJ.png

No fights left - https://i.imgur.com/zmREysy.png

OTHER ARENA TWEAKS (6 features)

While working on this big arena feature addition I ended up adding and fixing things in other areas too, the one I'm most excited for is the hall of fame changes. Now when a champion dies in a normal fight, if he is added to the hall of fame, the hall of fame entry will track who it was that killed him. Previous the entries didn't have this information and still worked ok, but with this information it adds another element to the hall of fame, maybe the number one champion of all time was defeated by the number 8, perhaps some of the hall of famers were defeated by champions who themselves were defeated too quickly to enter the hall of fame themselves but are forever immortalised as the ones who defeated the greatest champions. It's a minor change but in my opinion it's quite a big improvement to the hall of fame and I'm super excited to see the new hall of fame stories develop while I'm playing.

* Added arena hall of fame entries now show you who defeated them
* Fixed issue with arena 32 man tournament second stage graphic
* Fixed text bug with public opinion loss for grand champion arrest
* Added missing menu option for housing upgrades in arena
* Removed irrelevant warning texts for bribing grand champion to fight
* Added new screen for bribing grand champion but there isn't a grand champion

Active hall of fame - https://i.imgur.com/gagfhOj.png

COLOURFUL SCORPIONS (10 features)

After a suggestion by our discord member 14Patrik, scorpions now have varying colours, Good idea mate!

* Added new colour system for scorpion pit scorpions (credit 14Patrik)
* Added white colour for Albino scorpions
* Added Grey colour for ancient scorpions
* Added purple colour for enchanted scorpions
* Added green colour for questionable (goblin) scorpions
* Added dark grey colour for black scorpions
* Added red colour for red scorpions
* Added grey colour for old scorpions
* Added white colour for white scorpions
* Added green colour for healthy scorpions

Two shots of colourful scorpions in action - https://i.imgur.com/smCu5yL.png https://i.imgur.com/uxCWTSy.png

DUMBLE-PACK (2 features)

The scourers of the Artifact Market may know of the artifact 'The Staff of Dumble' a staff that if given to a champion who bears the name 'Dumble' it will double their strength. The issue with this is there are only 4 Dumble-esque names in game and the odds of them occuring are super slim among the 1776 other human names that could be chosen. The artifact was always made to be a practically impossible one to pull off, but to help a little I've quadrupled the amount of Dumble-esque names in game, good luck!

* Added 12 new human names 'Dumblesquek, Dumbledink, Dumbledonk, Dumbledork, Dumbletwoo, Dumbledimp, Dumbledok, Dumbledoop, Dumbledonk, Dumbletork, Dumbledee, Dumbledwep' (credit NotFox)
* Added ability to give the dumble staff to a dumble champion directly from the arena menu

BUGFIXES (3 features)

A handful of bugs based on helpful reports from players. Thanks guys Smiley

* Fixed text bug with demon advice (credit Fatalweirdo)
* Fixed trap door upgrade being incorrectly refered to as throne room upgrade (credit Matt1211)
* Fixed mystery slaver never giving demons (credit KoningKrush)

EVERYTHING ELSE (2 features)

A few changes unrelated to everything else

* Made 'press space bar to skip' option now say 'Hold space bar to skip' (credit Adrive)
* Made 777 on Warsim main menu open up an Arena Fight tester

WHAT'S NEXT

I'm getting back into the combat stuff again as this update was meant to be a short break to get back into coding after my computer broke down for a week.

Warsim 0.8.4.2 (Combat Additions and More, 52 features)

Hey everyone, so following up from the recent combat update I've been fixing and expanding some of the pre-existing features while working on the next part of the update. Still in a lot of work to go but I'm glad that the new progress can be easily shared thanks to the combat updates Alpha release!

NO ARMY REACTION (8 features)

Sometimes an enemy force that has been well and truly battered, will have 0 defenders by the time you launch an invasion or a raid. Now the game with recognise this and skip the majority of the battle screens to immediately show you a new alternate set of victory screens. The same is true if you are attacked and have no troops to defend.

* Added new system to skip battle majority of combat if no defenders
* Added new screen for player invading empty enemy land
* Added new screen for enemy invading empty player land
* Added new screen for player raiding empty enemy land
* Added new screen for enemy raiding empty player land
* Added new screen for player skirmishing empty enemy land
* Added new screen for enemy skirmishing empty player land

No defenders - https://i.imgur.com/UinGwqz.png

BATTLE REINFORCEMENTS (4 features)

In the old combat system your forts and friends could provide reinforcements to you when being attacked or attacking, but it was not present in the new combat system. Well now it is!

* Added reinforcement system for attacking
* Added new pop up for attacking reinforcement showing how many soldiers are gained
* Added reinforcement system for defending
* Added new pop ups showing troops gained by defending reinforcements

STONE SKIPPING (2 features)

There's already one location you can skip stones in thanks to a player suggestion, but in a recent playthrough I made it to swamps end and wished I could do the same. Well now you can!

* Reworked the graphic for swamps end in the west
* Added the ability to skip a stone in swamps end

Skip those stones - https://i.imgur.com/JW9ZmxP.png

FRUIT FARM IMPROVED (5 features)

Came across the fruit farm in a recent playthrough and saw that it wasn't quite up to scratch with the rest of the game, now it is!

* Reworked gold indicators in magical fruit farm
* Added new screen with sfx for planting fruit in magic fruit farm
* Added new screen for not having the room to plant fruit
* Added new screen for not having the gold to pay to plant fruit
* Fixed 5 text bugs with fruit farm texts

BATTLE REPORTS FOR WATCHED FIGHTS (4 features)

In the combat update you have the option to watch enemy battles if your spymaster is skilled enough, however I noticed that without the end of battle reports like the player gets at the end of their own battles, the enemy battles just abruptly end and the game moves on. I've added little reports that should help explain and breakdown how the battle went before you choose to move on so it's not so jarring and abrupt!

* Added new battle report for enemy fights you've watched
* Added battle report for draw battle
* Added battle report for defender victory
* Added battle report for attacker victory

The Report - https://i.imgur.com/ddoytN6.png

BRING BACK MY DEATHEATERS! (3 features)

A rare racial trait in Warsim is Deatheater or Souleater, these races gain +1 battlescore per unit for every 25 kills they get. After some testing I realised this system wasn't in the new combat so I've now added it in and created some new pop up screens you get to show off the battlescore gain as it happens.

* Added deatheater battlescore growth system to the new combat
* Added notification screen when troops gain battlescore from deatheating (with sfx)
* Added notification for it both attacker and defender are deatheaters and both gain battlescore

A screen from both fighters being deatheaters - https://i.imgur.com/ELcmYIo.png

SEE YOUR DEFENDERS (1 feature)

When you're attacked in Warsim, the game divides your total troops by your total lands. There's nothing in the game that explains this to you so it can seem quite arbitrary. I've added a new screen that pops up when you're attacked that shows you how many defenders you'll have and explains exactly why you have them.

* Added defender breakdown screen when player is attacked

Defender Breakdown - https://i.imgur.com/LPekaso.png

NEW BLUETRII PRE-BATTLE OPTION (1 feature)

It occured to me that before every battle I was using bluetrii, and using the max I could order to be eated each time. I realized I could just add an option on the first screen where you choose if you want to use bluetrii at all, to say 'Use max' and have the game use the most you could use to streamline this. It's a simple little change but it saves a bit of time, and time is money!

* Added new option to choose to eat max bluetrii before battle

The new option - https://i.imgur.com/g4qlJGJ.png

EGGHEAD BUILDING (3 features)

In the last update a new feature was added to post battle screens, Eggheads. Now they've been fleshed out into the world a bit more, to be more than just a random thing in the reports.

* Added new building in Artifact Market 'Egghead Building'
* Added alt screen for Egghead Building if player has killed battle report Egghead
* Added 6 dialogues with Head Egghead

It's the head Egghead - https://i.imgur.com/IpZ2weP.png

GOBLIN PEBBLE BARRAGE (6 features)

While working on this update I figured it's never a bad time to add new random events that can happen during battle. So here's a new one that only happens if you allow goblin slavery, with 5 alternate versions for certain weather!

* Added new random battle event 'Goblin pebble barrage' (only if you allow goblin slavery)
* Added new weather alt 'Goblin pebble barrage on fire' (only in flaming rain)
* Added new weather alt 'Goblin pebble barrage combust' (only in extreme heat)
* Added new weather alt 'Goblin pebble barrage mostly blown away (in windy weather/storm)
* Added new weather alt 'Goblin pebble barrage blown away' (in windy weather/storm)
* Added new weather alt 'Goblin pebble barrage melts' (only in acid rain)

This update has been focused on addressing some issues players have been having with bandit raids so I'll continue more on it below!

BANDIT RAIDS OVERHAULED (32 features)

The points raised by players have been logical so I've sought to address them in a way that keeps the threat there but has it at least make more sense. Now instead of freely being able to pillage every penny you earn, bandits will have reduced capacity for raiding and can end up fighting with your troops and killing some as well as losing some of their own.

* Added new system for handling bandit raids
* Buffed weak independent kingdom bandit raids
* Made Horde and Minor bandit raiders be divided by their total lands instead of their full population
* Added 50% chance of raid failing if player has 3x the defenders on the land than the raiders send
* Added 30% chance of raid failing if player has 2x the defenders on the land than the raiders send
* Added 25% chance of raid failing if player has 1.5x the defenders on the land than the raiders send
* Added 20% chance of raid failing if player has less than 1.5x defenders but more than the raiders sent
* Added 50% chance of raid success if player has 3x less defenders on the land than the raiders send
* Added 30% chance of raid success if player has 2x less defenders on the land than the raiders send
* Added 25% chance of raid success if player has 1.5x less defenders on the land than the raiders send
* Added 20% chance of raid success if raiders have less than 1.5x but more than the player
* Made each separate bandit raid be reported by itself instead of using merged system just saying minor bandits robbed you
* Added big success raids with double the income
* Added weak success raids with half the income
* Added system that tracks how many raids have been blocked by your palisades and lets you know at the end of the turn
* Added curfew law being active makes bandit raids twice as less likely to succeed
* Added new notification of bandit raid changes when enabling and disabling curfew law
* Added 1 in 20 chance a failed raid will destroy defence palisades
* Added 1 in 40 chance a failed raid will downgrade heavy defence palisades
* Added 1 in 60 chance a failed raid will downgrade thorn-laced defence palisades
* Added new pop up screen with sfx if palisades are destroyed/damaged
* Added event for failed raid killing a lone bandit
* Added event for failed raid killing a random number of bandits
* Added event for failed raid killing a random number of bandits and your soldiers
* Added event for failed raid killing a random number of your soldiers
* Added event for failed raid killing a lone one of your soldiers
* Added event for failed raid with raiders captured and killed (if prison closed)
* Added event for failed raid with raiders improsoned (if prison open)
* Added event for failed raid where bandits are caight and flee
* Added event for failed raid where bandits can't find a way in
* Added event for failed raid where bandits are chased off by angry peasants
* Made players bandit pillaging 50% less effective (out of fairness)

A comparison of old and new raid systems - https://i.imgur.com/xBD4XMd.png

INSTRMENT OF FATE (9 features)

Some players recently complained that they wished they could choose the fate of the independent leaders of enemy kingdoms when they defeat them, I have now made that possible with a number of options!

* Added new screen when invading the last land of an independent kingdom (credit Anarcho-raoism and CristianCam)
* Added 6 variant texts for ruler captured depending on their personality
* Added option to execute the leader
* Added option to force them to drink poison (6 variant reactions)
* Added option to toss them from the highest cliff
* Added option to exile them (6 variant reactions)
* Added option to set them free (6 variant reactions)
* Added option to ask them to become your champion (if champion slots are free)
* Added alternate outcome for champion request if their leader is hostile personality

The new options after defeating a kingdom - https://i.imgur.com/vOFVNhO.png

Poison it is - https://i.imgur.com/x9Ogs7y.png

You can join me - https://i.imgur.com/NjTB2Pr.png

LOCAL BANDIT GROUP CHANGES (3 features)

In game unless you have the artifact that prevents them, sometimes little bandit groups spawn within your own lands and swear to destroy you. I found their destruction to be quite boring as you are told the leader is executed in some end of turn text but you don't see it happen. I've expanded things now!

* Added pop up bandit groups to the new combat system
* Added new screen for defeating pop up bandit group showing leader execution
* Added +3 public opinion gain for defeating pop up bandit group

Take that, bandit scum - https://i.imgur.com/FDhy1Lp.png

BUGFIXES (4 features)

A few bug fixes, cheers for the reports guys!

* Fixed destroyed arena text bug (credit Aegis)
* Fixed annexation text bug (credit Danwar)
* Fixed bug with last 5 bandits from 5th bandit gang not being sent to battle
* Fixed an issue with skirmish victories being incorrectly reported in end of turn reports

EVERYTHING ELSE (3 feature)

This contains an actually pretty big change, the new non human champions thing is quite exciting for me!

* Blocked egghead reports for last stand only battles as they show nothing
* Added new system that allows for non human champions to be hired from the champions choice of 16 (credit Helloo)
* Added 9989 code to spawn pest group

A golem champion being hired - https://i.imgur.com/dxOfU6j.png

and a giant - https://i.imgur.com/i7I3YNf.png

WHAT'S NEXT

Now that the bandit stuff is out of the way I'm finishing coming up with some new combat system concepts before I move on and start creating them, lots of work to do but it's good to see it all come together!

Cheers

Hey guys,

It's Halloween again so here's a little Halloween gift for those enjoying Warsim at the moment or those who are diving back in!

A new halloween mod to play and a small update with 50 new halloween themed items!

I'm still working on the multi attack system (allowing players and enemies to launch more than one attack per year) and it's going well but there's a lot I wish to add and improve so it's going to take a little while longer.

But in the meantime I'm happy to be able to at least put out something for you guys!

To those who have been active in the community at all over the last year or so, thank you all so much. No matter what has happened this year, good or bad, there has always been daily comments across steam, reddit, youtube, twitter, discord, and the forums for Warsim and they are pretty much entirely positive and kind comments that mean so much. Such a lovely connection to the community and those who clearly love the game is so wholesome and is one of the strongest fuels that keeps this passion project in development full time for so many years now!

Beyond that, if anyone here doesn't own Warsim (or does and knows anyone who might enjoy it)

Warsim is on sale at 40% off for Steam Halloween sale so it'll be a lot cheaper to pick up ($4.79) - https://store.steampowered.com/app/659540/Warsim_The_Realm_of_Aslona/?beta=0

Anyway, without further ado... The changelogs

The legend of Spooktaria

The game takes place in a save filed called 'Spooktaria' which pits you in the shoes of Ween the Hallowed One, ruler of Spooktaria in a fight against a world of spooky creatures.

* Load the Save 'Spooktaria' to start the game
* Start with 3 custom champions 'Dracula (800 Battlescore), Hoggo the Demonic (666 Battlescore), and Patchwork Monster (450 Battlescore)'
* Start with Decrepit Croll as your diplomat

Hello everyone, I've been working a while on this content update as a big thank you to everyone for their support in helping Warsim reach 30'000 copies sold online! For a text based kingdom management game in 2021, that is surreal to me and it means I can work on this passion project for as long as I need!

I set out to do a number of things to celebrate this fantastic milestone and one of those was to make a 300 piece update, unfortunately I overshot it a little, so I added a few more things to push it to 333!

* Here's a video announcement about the 30k -


* And Warsim is currently 30% off for the 30k milestone. Though I will say, don't get your hopes up for 100% off if we make it to the 100k milestone, hahaha

Without further ado, here is the first section of the update, a new interesting character that will occupy and explore the realm.

ELYK THE MADMAN (32 features)

Elyk the Madman is a new character you may encounter in Warsim. He's a perpetual drunk and a wildcard that once befriended can pop up on occasion all over the game and help you out. Once met you can go and get drunk with him at the Three Blades inn at the Artifact Market anytime using the new 'Drinking with a friend' system I've added to the game.

I saw a talk on game design recently that opened my eyes to instances where a generic number is used to convey something and it made me think, so I've added a new section to champion stat screens to show with extra text what sort of strength a champion is, there are now 13 different ratings a champion can be based on their total battlescore from Absurdly weak, puny and weak, up to Elite and Absurdly Powerful.

* Added 13 different strength indicator texts 'As strong as a soldier / Elite / Absurdly Weak' etc

- A weak hero - https://i.imgur.com/ZT3dx45.png

- One of the best I found - https://i.imgur.com/aVbVf8t.png

BANDIT EXECUTION EFFECT (15 features)

It occured to me while watching a Warsim stream, that executing bandits in the throne room didn't have the effect it could, reducing bandit level. If you heard the king was giving the chop to every bandit in the throne room you might reconsider your ways!

HERO NAMES EXPANDED (246 features)

Name suffix additions are thing that can be added to random name suffixes. For example a character could be called Jorg the Ugly, but the suffix 'The Ugly' itself can be further randomised so it could be Jorg the Ugly Staffmaster, etc. With 100s of new additions to the many pre-existing name suffixes there are now 1000s more possibilities!

There were too many to include directly in the changelog so I've had to remove them, to see the full list of all 246 of them see this new wiki entry - https://warsim-the-realm-of-aslona.fandom.com/wiki/New_character_name_prefixes_added_in_Warsim_0.8.4.8?venotify=created

EVERYTHING ELSE (5 features)

WHAT'S NEXT

A lot more to work on after this little bout of celebrating, it was just too good a milestone to pass up! And again, thank you all who contributed to that figure, every single copy in that 30k is a chunk of this dream come true scenario for me so thank you from the bottom of my heart.
