I hope that warsim will make use of the weapons creator wich is now available. Especially if the combat system will be updated. I think that will make battles as well as arena fights more interesting.
BTW: I don't know if this will be of use, but if not suggested before, freesound.org is also a web site where are free sound effects available, for the sound system in the future. But I don't know if they can be used in commercial projects though.
Ah, and I realy like the new features of the update. That it is possible to upgrade the throne room is very cool and the time limit wich is optional is a very nice addition, too. Thanks for this, that's cool.

@Kenshira, to be fair its' been mentioned before about the ability to save scum to make money but the way I see it, there are literally money cheats, why trick the game into giving you money when you can just type a little code.

As for the auto-updater, I'm not sure if I can do it for a console application, I'm not sure, the game auto-updates on steam but of course via direct download sites its more difficult, I will look into it though

As for the areas with question marks, its because the game is in development and so I still haven't finished a lot of areas but they will come in time smile

@Niklas, cheers for the heads up, I'll look into these typos

The weapon generator has been in the game for over a year but I cannot see any meaningful way to implement it yet, definitely want to have more sound effects in the game though

@Wastelander: Like I said, weapons could get interesting in combat if the combat System gets renewed. Maybe with different stats. You could choose wich weapons are used or let the AI decide. In Arenas they are interesting as well and maybe even in adventuring parts as well as in Boss fights if Boss like creatures and Charakters come in. But if the weapn Generator is needed for this i don't know. But that are the parts in wich I think weapons are very interesting and but another strategic element into the game.

the System I menssioned a while ago and wich I know from shadows of mordor, where enemies can remember you if you fight them again or meet them again was mostly for leaders in there. Might be interesting in warsim as well for leaders and mini bosses as well as big ones maybe.

I'm glad to see all the new throne room encounters, those are one of my favorite parts of the game.
And all the entertainers, cool!
I'll try to think of some negative suffixes too if you want...

Greetings!
Is anyone else having trouble loading save files with the latest update? I get the prompt asking if I want the game to make the save from the last version compatible with this verson and when I dhoose to, the game just crashes. This is something that popped up in v0.712 where compatibility changes weren't being saved with my progress, only with that build the game didn't crash. This time I get the slightest glimpse of a fatal error message before the game shuts down entirely. I usually overwrite my old folder when updating but the problem seems to persist even if I estract it to a new folder and try to load a newly created save. It still thinks the sace velongs to 0.712. So was just wondering if it was just me.

Regards

Sorry guys, an issue was brought to my attention with save files and it will have affected any saves made in 0.7.1.3, the files were corrupted upon creation with basically disabled the save system completely.

This is now fixed, although this isn't a release I've added a little something so we can give it a changelog

* Fixed new save system bug
* Added 174 billion new dwarf faces

Hi Omer, at the moment I won't need any additonal sounds, I'm gonna have to research how to have multiple sounds playing simultaneously from a console window, if I can do this then there will be sounds added everywhere smile

Hey! Thanks so much for fixing the save bug!
Hmm, the console only being able to play 1 sound at a time reminds me of a problem midway faced when porting mortal kombat 3 to the sega genesis/megadrive. Back then the console only had 1 channel to play digitized sound while the rest of the channels were for hardware specific sounds. To combat this limitation, what they did was stack 2 sounds into 1 sound to gibe us the illusion of hearing more than 1 sound. So a fist contacting an opponent and the opponent screaming would just be 1 sound bite rather than 2.
You're working with far superior tech so there is probably a better way, but just in case I thoug i'd put this one out there.

True you can build scenes and ambience, but frankly I think he needs to figure out compression of some kind at the same time if he wants his game to be small, and that hasn't happened yet so...
Glad your thinking of it though Huw

If size is an issue then that technique will reduce the number of sound files for sure. Do wish the music was in stereo though.
Wonder if there are more female races besides cursed witches. Banshi, amazon and faerie and undine would be great additions I think.

there are harpies in terms of female races. Also I'm not sure fairies really count as a female race, a lot of stories feature male ones as much as female.

I was wondering, is there any way to train units of other races? I get some corsair orclings, some fake harpies, and some yellow corpse lord (this unit is called yellow corpsewalker.) but I really won't be able to make good use of them until I find a way to level them up if that is possible. Corsair orclings are okay because I get a million of them from my vassal nation, however, yellow corpsewalkers are terrible, being actually significantly weaker than peasants, but if I could get them stronger, I'd be a force to be reckoned with as the corpselord 2nd and 3rd tier units are nightmares. Because of that high combat rating for their high-end guys, they have a small army and I don't get many corpsewalkers each year (usually single-digits) so I can't just rush with them like I can the orclings. I'm in a similar boat with the harpies as they have lackluster first tier guys but downright terrifying 3rd tier units.

Also, if you think it is spoilers you can tell me privately. but I found this strange village that's a little weird in the desert oasis in the south and was wondering if I'm right in thinking they are involved with the demons, if they are, thinking of  razing their city to the ground, unless there is some serious reason not to. But was wondering if I'm right in thinking that odd isolationist village is evil.

Also, if I wanted to be a demon king, how do I manage that?

Just wondering.

Great game and can't wait to say I've actually beaten my enemies at some point.

You can train goblin tribals into berserkers in the grand barics, couple other things too but its just x into peasants knights or soldiers. I too would like a general upgrade that allows the training of other units. For now the best way to get upper units is by maxing out the throne room size and waiting for them.
Speaking of which, the game still crashes when there's too much for the steward to handle, like over 100. Death by coin works but not all the time.
Can I put in a request for an achievement/trophy system? I'd like more to shoo for than just conquest.

Yeah I've always thought about how nice that'd be too, to be able to train those guys, as after a while even if they have middle tier units for sail from the ally screen they never seem to have top tier ones, and having to pick between all the low, mid and high units for every ally when going into battle is annoying if you've gotten allot of them.
Maybe if you could pay for them to be trained, since obviously you wouldn't have the expertise your self, or if their was some kind of NATO joint forces training analog? LOL
Like a center or an add-on for your barracks or something? maybe only if you soled them the rite to levy your troops?

@Bookrage, the independent unit upgrades sound like a good idea, I'll note it down

As for the southern village, they definitely are demonic so do what you have to do, and check your cheat list.txt file in warsim's files to find how to start as a demon smile

@Kenshira, I'll look into the crash thing, shouldn't be happening!
