    I got this game for free because of the whole streaming thing and played a bunch of multiplayer last night with @TheKoolEagle on our streams. So far it's really fun! There's SO much stuff in it it definitely was taking me a bit to figure things out. I am rolling as the assembly and attempting to set the planet on fire via promethean secret tech because of course I am. UI is a little finicky at times so far.

    Have been looking forward to this - had preordered the premium edition weeks ago.

    I'm working from home but of course it's a crazy day here so I prob won't be able to look until tonight but I will as soon as I can.

    Other than the Eurogamer review that seemed like they didn't know what they were talking about, most of the reviews have been pretty positive. I'm pumped to jump into this after I'm done with Fire Emblem.

    ugh i just got fucked over in a battle. I'm not sure if there's a way to tell what the power level is of a ruin before you enter it but :(

    I haven't seen a way to check power level before going in but on the pre-battle screen where it shows both sides units it has the strength numbers at bottom and a Monty Python run away button on upper left of window.

    I've been a fan of AoW since the first and this game is just amazing. Just finished my first scenario where I thought I was going to win and then my Amazon allies who had been with me since like, turn 5 backstabbed me. I'm going to lose so many hours to this.


    Also, octowhales spit acid.. who knew combining two gentle giants could create nature's greatest killing machine

    That Cult of Salad quest is even funnier because it comes from a race of peaceful sentient plants. I just started this yesterday and they were the NPC faction right next to me, and I'm generally pretty aggressive and warlike and was prepared to destroy them and take their lands but upon reading their description and how peaceful and friendly and just want to live in peace with all life forms they are I decided to be friends, dammit.

    Also, Hello Planetfall thread! I'm also a huge fan of Age of Wonders. AoW: Shadow Magic is maybe my favorite (it was my replacement Master of Magic) 4X game of all time. I was generally unhappy and bored with Age of Wonders 3, though I can't recall specifically why.

    I'm playing Humans first, because robuts and space marines. I care not for the story or tutorials or scenarios. I play random maps. I've been looking forward to this game since I first heard of it. I love sci-fi and was thrilled to see Triumph Studios give it a go in that direction.

    I loved shadow magic too. Age of wonders 3 had Beyond Earth disease where every individual aspect looks pretty good on paper but somehow it just doesn’t work and comes across and boring and mediocre.

    There is a power rating in the mouse over pop up window on an enemy stack, and also your own power rating if you do that on your own stack.

    Hello everyone!

    Patch v1.004 also known as the Velociraptor, is available and ready to be updated on Steam, GoG and PDX.

    We have decided to name our substantial updates after dinosaurs in honor of the Amazon beasts. We’ll try to reflect the updates’ focus in the choice of dino. This time around we decided to go for the Velociraptor due to its speed and size; which reflects this patch perfectly! It features a variety of fixes and quality of life improvements!

    General
    • Significantly reduced waiting times between turns late game
    • Added edge scrolling; disabled by default (setting can be found in the Controls options)
    • Added a button to randomize the commander names in commander customization
    • Added an option to ‘Force Fast Combat Animations’ in the Options > Combat UI menu.
    • Changing the language of the launcher now automatically updates the language setting for the game.
    • Fixed startup hang when the installation folder contains non-ansi characters; this affected some of our Chinese, Japanese and Rusian players.
    • Other general stability improvements; including some of the most commonly reported crashes.
    • Various text fixes in multiple languages
    • Improved various Imperial Archives entries to provide additional and clearer information.
    • Fixed that Steam invites to a password protected lobby would fail and show an “incorrect password” message.
    • Renamed the invert combat camera rotation/zoom settings to X/Y axis. These 2 settings now support the mouse rotation in combat.

    Campaign
    • Fixed a problem that under rare circumstances the “Find the Propovus Lab” quest in the second Kir’Ko mission (Xa’Kir’Ko) could not be completed. Players that ran into the problem will need to re-enter the “Propovus” Xenoplague Labs sector with one of their armies to complete the quest.
    • Fixed an issue where the player could get stuck in looping story messages after meeting the Psi-Fish in the first Kir’Ko mission (Arcadia Caeleste).
    • Fixed an issue where the player could not complete a quest to ally Chin Til’Trz in the second Vanguard mission, if he already allied Chin Til’Trz before receiving the quest. Affected players need to wait for a new turn for the quest to complete.
    Gameplay
    • Added icons to operations on the Research screen to clearly show whether they are tactical, strategic or doctrine operations.
    • Fixed an issue where the AI would sometimes offer peace and make war at the same time with players who are in the run for multiple victory conditions at the same time.
    • Removed a line of text from the message that appears when a call to war is declined; to make the message clearer.
    • Fixed a crash when the AI tried to denounce a player without having any Casus Belli to denounce with.
    • Fixed that locating a sector that is being demanded by an NPC faction would close the demand screen.
    • Fixed that the player could not declare war on an NPC faction while being in an Integrated (Highest) relation state with them.
    • Fixed that the Hasher SMG hero weapon was missing particles and sounds when being fired.
    • Sectors are no longer tradeable if they are annexed to a colony that is occupied.
    • Trade analysis text has been changed to the following format “Trade analysis: good deal for you” to help clarify that this analysis is targeted at the player and is not something the (AI) player on screen is saying.
    • Fixed crash in tactical combat when switching to nearby units while another unit is destroying an obstacle.
    • Now you no longer receive race relation penalties at the start of a Fixed Teams session due to starting wars, to prevent negative relations from the start. Note: This only applies to newly created scenarios.
      Completing the last item in a city production queue now keeps the remaining production, rather than wasting it.
    Disclaimer: Note that new text entries are English only at the moment; localization will follow shortly. This update is still in the works for PS4 and Xbox One.

    Thanks for all the feedback! Many of these changes were a result of all the comments and reports provided.

    For any remaining issues please report them to:

    So, you can only have 6 units in a stack and that kinda bums me out. It doesn't seem like enough, but I'm still early in the game. Are all battles limited to 6 vs 6? I have not tried to have a reinforcing stack yet.

  • Options
    Moridin889Moridin889 Registered User regular
    Any stack adjacent to the first attacking/defending stack gets to fight. So 6 stacks max

  • Options
    Evil MultifariousEvil Multifarious Registered User regular
    Up to 42 units can be involved in a battle, which is unlikely, but I really want to have that happen!

    I'm starting to hit a point where pretty much the only way for me to take a city is by surrounding it with stacks and assaulting from all sides due to militia sizes + the AI having a couple 3K+ armies parked on it, battle sizes be crazy and as usual while i'm dealing w/ crazy bug dude who declared war on me the psycho amazons who I was on good terms with stab me in the fucking back as I surround his capital. I swear to god my first order of business in every game is going to be exterminate the fucking amazons

    Did you play AoW3 only at release? Because that game received a ton of post launch release. Races and classes were gutted and rebalanced several times over to give personality to the many race/class combos.

    It's a legit really good game these days. One of the best in 4X. At release though I would absolutely agree that the choices were bland and samey.

    So far I love the art but wish the graphics were a bit tighter, coming from xcom the battles are so pixelated and ugly looking it’s often hard to see a unit in any detail. But I’m having fun

    Same. Bought it on XB1X so I could couch play. 4K it looks really nice. Controller play is fine as well just a bit slow but the game is slow so no biggie.

    Still buggy though on the xbox heh.

    Was doing the bug's 2nd campaign map and ended up pinned in a corner for over 100 turns. I had four six-stack armies and my energy production was down to +2/turn. Opponent to north I had non-aggression pact (and needed to ally with them for victory) and two to west of me were allies while the remaining two were at war with me and sending armies around edges of my area just enough I couldn't go anywhere. So basically all I did for two hours was set production to energy (to keep it from going negative) and hit end turn until the northern opponent finally warmed up enough to ally...
