  • We finished a first version of map terrains placement and added a few migration steps to migrate the map easily on the current servers (remove the old Automated Villages system and add new map terrain tiles in the map)
  • We reworked the battle system to enable the possibility for users to attack a map terrain to control it after.
  • We added the terrain control -> the remaining units after the attack to a terrain start looting its resources and then come back to the village.
  • We reworked the attack computation to follow the new rules. The attack result is now fully compliant.
  • We added a blocking check when attacking a village, to see if the village has unblocked the “conquest” research and how many terrains they can attack/loot in the same time.
  • We added a “terrain summary” that needs a bit of rework but lists all the terrains being looted by the village.
  • We started working on AI Outposts, a specific type of map terrains where the attacking village loots Items instead of resources
Next steps:
  • rework the items system to make it compliant to the game design
  • finish the AI outposts
  • enable the possibility of attacking a terrain being looted

I’m working on the new icons that will be used for the items, for the moment the menu is an older place to test the features.
