PostPosted: Mon Aug 24, 2015 11:31 pm    Post subject: Upcoming reports

Hey Napoleons and Napoleonitas, we know you're looking forward the next release AND modding report #24. I am still writing on the report and there's the threat that it becomes a very long post again. Therefore we decided it'd be better to split the report into smaller parts which might be summarized later on. Here is a list of hot topics we will report about over the next few weeks:

  • Presentation of our civ selection tool "Congress of Vienna" (CoV)
  • Our serious efforts to rebalance NE
  • Release notes of NE 2.1.8 ("CoV release")
  • Roadmap and progress for NE 2.2
  • A discussion of the future shift from NE2 to NE3
  • Team updates
  • Changes and news per civilization (incl. Persia & Denmark)
  • New units and redesigned units
  • NE FAQ
  • Unit voices, music and sounds
  • Upcoming maps and natives (+mind games)
  • etc. etc.!

Hope you're gonna like it. Looking forward to finish the articles and post them! Wink

I'm really excited to see more, especially Persia and the new CoV system....
May I ask if anything is needed for Persia, for I am willing to help as much as possible....

We have lately been resolving some issues regarding the unit roster, which looks pretty good and complete to me now. I'll wrap my head around details then. Persian economy and technologies will still need some attention, but due to the complex nature of it, I feel it will require too much of my time resources if discussion and research becomes too widespread. So I intend to catch up time by pushing this sector myself as much as possible on my own and let others refine this work whenever serious doubts arise or flaws and deficits become obvious.

I can offer you some topics though on which you might spend thoughts as the internal concepts aren't mature enough yet. These would be for example:
- Politicians & Age up (possibly considering a "soft" usage of Persian "wonders")
- Alternative consulate (probably like the US one that works without Import)
- Persian equivalent to the western University and elite units
- Hypothetical Persian revolution. Since Persia is the melting pot of Asian and European civs, they might get a special revolution. What should it look like?
- Fate of Zamburaks. While I already favored the partyzant-like model we agreed on also for the Jazayerchi, I feel that a clear decision is missing regarding fate of the Indian "duplicate". I considered renaming the Indian ones, but haven't received any qualified feedback on this plan yet.

I recommend you to copy these points and answer to them in the Persia thread and not here. Wink

Yes, NE 2.1.8 is basically the release of the CoV and prepares NE 2.2. Smile

Off course you will. With the Congress of Vienna you can choose your opponents very easily.

In regards of choosing civilizations to play with, yes. Apart from that, it looks different and offers some other tools.
