@Niklas, definitely interesting ideas, I'm looking at expanding the custom game options soon but I'm anxious to get the long overdue Baiaa update finished and released as this is probably the longest I've taken to finish something, or at least it feels that way! lots of other stuff on the go...

@Dark, I love the concept, how do you propose a previous game effect a new game?

@Niklas, some very interesting ideas I'll be noting down!

Hi, great to hear from you again. Oh yes, it's a long period of time, I feel that it is the longest till yet as well. But don't worry, it's okay, since it sounds like a lot of new content coming up with the new area as well. Right now I am ill and stay home for a few days, so I have to rest in my bed for lots of time. So it is good to see a little status update if I can get up and look at my computer to see what's going on. *big smile*. Such things make me happy, even in such times were I can't do much.

regarding the custom game expansions, that could be part of another update as well. I think not everything has to be included in the upcoming one, so no worries.

Hi Wastelander.

What I was thinking was just similar to the graveyard file in the Wastelands however available in game rather than as an out of game reccord. Say your library could be expanded with a historical wing detailing annals of previous rulers of Aslona which you could then read.

If you wanted to have it affect current gameplay, then you could set it up a little differently. Say you could fund a wing of your library to research ancient tomes and when you gave them enough cash for their research, you got a random account of one of your previous games to read which gave you a bonus, eg, if it was a game where you did well with battles your  or troop strength could improve, while if it was a game where you made lots of cash you could get some  by finding the locations of ancient treasurevaults.

On the other hand, if it was a game where you slaughtered a certain enemy race, perhaps another race could hear of their grievance and decide to take it up against you.

Just some thoughts.

With our dreaming and singing, Ceaseless and sorrowless we! The glory about us clinging Of the glorious futures we see,
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)

@dark, it's a very interesting idea, I'll keep a note of it for when the game doesn't follow a linear-ish world space, at the moment while the surrounding kingdoms are random, aslona and it's pre-history are fairly spelled out, factions like Krut Erak rebels ect exist each time so it would be a little inconsistent where as in the wastes each character could easily exist in the same world, in the future I plan to steer away from Aslona being the center of the game allowing for something like this.

It's a great idea though.

Also so you guys know, the update is nearing completion, I have today finished a procedural monster generator, it generates random beasts with random bodyparts (and descriptions) these beasts fight with move-sets based on what parts they have, ie creatures with sharp teeth can bite, anything with horns and attack with them and so on, the system works really well so I'm excited to see what's to come smile

cool Thing, the Monster Generator sounds realy great.
If you'll steer away from aslona as the centre of the game, will the Player be able to decide in wich style he/she wants to Play and if he wants it the old way with aslona in the Center or in another Play style?

If the beasts can attack with various things, I think it's just consequent if Units can get weapons of different types. Maybe they could even learn different skills and maybe Level up them by Training and such.

@Niklas, yeah it's playing out pretty cool, just gotten done coding diplomacy with the vampires of Baiaa and even allowed for them to run low on slaves and get desperate as well as being weaker and rationing out the blood they have!

It's been a floating idea for a while for the Aslona thing to be reworked, it's quite cemented in the game at the moment but it'll probably go like this after the new game screen

1) Classic Warsim (Aslona)
2) Choose a starting Kingdom (ie orcish tribe, human kingdom, gnome clan and so on)
3) Random Starting Kingdom
4) Play a premade world
5) Set up a custom game

also it's a good idea with the units and such, the battle system will be overworked eventually so it's worth noting down, the combat with monsters is pretty fun though, you'll see a monster with a big sharp tooth filled mouth, big arms and spikes on it's head and watch as it attacks with all three!

It would be so awesome to be able to play as other races, haha.
Wonder how you'd deal with the power difference though? I guess the units would cost more at the very least.


Hey so you said before that you had a clothing line, is that related to Warsim or The Wastes? I'd like to contribute more than 5 pounds if possible, and I need a couple new t-shirts anyway...

@Defender, I would leave it unbalanced, so you could have some races that might be really easy to play as, and some that might be very difficult smile

As for the shirts, it's a skate brand https://i.imgur.com/cLFapvj.jpg so none of the clothes are related to the game, if you're still interested though let me know! and thanks for the support regardless smile

@Niklas, will do smile

Cool. Another additional suggestion in regards to the one with the torches in quests I made, another thing the units could do is making fires between the quest or journey for example to make something to eat or such. But that are all suggestions wich could be interesting if you can watch someone performing theier quests, or some of them. It would be interesting I think to see and follow such things, so you can see how they handle various situations and dangers as well, a bit like watching brawls or arena fights. That could be even fun I think.

@Niklas, I wasn't sure at first but when you compared it to the brawl pit I see what you mean, that's actually not a bad idea, it could show you with each pannel what the adventurer/knight is doing on their quest and random things could happen, I really like that idea and I'm gonna note it down

glad that you like it. Yeah, it's funny sometimes to watch several Charakters do things on theier own. That's were the idea to find and use torches in dark Caves for example came from.

Yeah, would be kind of like dungeon delving in the wastes, you find a box of lockpicks, you find a dead mole rat, and so on

Great idea though Niklas, glad you're here pumping out ideas!

No problem, i like doing that if it can make the game even better. Great to hear that the update is nearing completion though. BTW: Are more updates planed for this year or will the Baja update be the last one. [wow], that took the longest time till yet I think but I am sure it is worth it.

I like that quest system idea as well, it would be fun to use your champions like that.
The minigame with the mountain climbing knights gives you a taste of that format, and it's pretty addictive even with that.
