UPDATE 0.491 [WARCAMP MANAGEMENT #1]
Mon, 13 July 2020



Welcome, lords and ladies of KINGDOMS!


0.491
It's time to finish war-camps, amount of work is quite large here (i think i've mentioned this last week), so i decided to update the game in several steps - today war-camps UI (activated through diplomacy map) and buildings are coming, the next update will finish building process and camps needs, like morale and hunger. There are 14 places in war-camp, where player can set up a building or a siege machine. There are 5 types:

   Tent (raises morale);
   Field kitchen (needed for hunger);
   Trebuchet (destroys walls during siege);
   Siege-tower (soldiers can get into closed settlement);
   Ram (destroys closed gates during sieges);

The next step is adding working needs and parameters for war-camp: morale, hunger, deference, siege machines strength and army strength. Also full working building process (using resources) for war-camp structures is also planned for next update. Besides, more details will be added to the tents - like commanding table (to manage camp right from the tent), banks, barrels etc. As you see, we're also a step closer to sieges and wars (which is great by me). Full list of changes follows:


BUGFIXING

   Fixed issue, when doors spring had position too close to the wall, causing various physics issues with the door;
   Resources, needed to build a City Hall were tweaked;
   Fixed issue when war camp calculated soldiers position incorrect sometimes;
   War camp now can't be set too close to the settlement, bandit's lair, farm or ruins;
   Fixed issue when wall didn't delete near by vegetation and rocks properly;
   Fixed issue when walls were added to path-finding grid, causing various AI path finding issues;
   Fixed issue when soldiers looked in wrong positions when reaching a war camp;
   Fixed issue when AI path finding could be still calculated through the wall;
   Fixed issue when map icons could be created and become visible when player closed diplomacy map when war camp position was calculated;
   War camp now can be destroyed once created;
   Fixed issue when player could created new war-camp while old one was calculated;


IMPORTANT
1) Please, feel free to use built-in bug reporter - it will help development a lot.
2) If something is broken make sure you have verified game files and started new world, remember -KINGDOMS is still EA, i try to make saveы compatibility for every new version of the game, but can't guarantee it all the time.
3) The game is still in development, it's NOT finished product, updates are coming 3-4 times a week and that will inevitably cause various issues. Updates for game in development and for finished game - are two absolutely different things, remember that. Game mechanics come and gone, bugs are being fixed and new ones appear all the time. Its a normal thing for development process. If you want to experience KINGDOMS as it was initially designed - smooth, unbuggy and full of working mechanics - please, wait till final version will be out.

Thanks for your support, see you very soon!

UPDATE 0.493 [WARCAMP MANAGEMENT #2]
Wed, 15 July 2020



Welcome, lords and ladies of KINGDOMS!


0.493
Today we're finishing war-camp management mechanics - there are quite a lot new gameplay details here, so i'll explain how the management works. Each war-camp has 14 spots for 5 different buildings (tent, supply tent, trebuchet, siege-tower and ram) and require resources to be build. When you send your army to war-camp you can assign soldiers to help you with building. Amount of workers you can set for each object depends on your commanding perks - from 1 to 4. The more soldiers assigned, the faster war-camp object will be build. You can assign soldiers not only to scaffolds but also to finished structures, i.e soldiers assigned to supply tent will add +5 supply points to the camp. There are 2 types of camp parameters;

   Morale - will define how much damage your army will deliver in battles;
   Supply - defines how much HP soldiers will have in battles;

I'm still thinking how to use morale and supply in coming wars, so they'll definitely affect more stuff when time will come and i'll start to develop sieges.

Also, now you can manage war camp right from Commanders tent, using a table there. I've also added some details to tents, like tables, barrels, food, banners etc.

War camp management is almost here - the last thing to do with war-camps are soldiers animations when assigning them to buildings, so monday update will finalize war-camp mechanics. And after that we'll be ready to march at war - and first in the list are sieges.

BUGFIXING
   Fixed issue when players save could get broken when building and then destroying (with torch) bandits lair (new game needed if issue exists);
   Fixed settlements banners shaders transparency on global map;
   Fixed issue when soldiers stuck at place after destroying warcamp;
   Fixed issue when warcamp parameters could be loaded incorrect;
   Fixed issue when settlement parameters were calculated incorrect sometimes when sleeping or waiting;


IMPORTANT
1) Please, feel free to use built-in bug reporter (F11) - it will help development a lot.
2) If something is broken make sure you have verified game files and started new world, remember -KINGDOMS is still EA, i try to make saves compatibility for every new version of the game, but can't guarantee it all the time.
3) The game is still in development, it's NOT finished product, updates are coming 3-4 times a week and that will inevitably cause various issues.

0.495
It's Friday and bugfixing is coming. Before you'll go check full list of fixes (it's full thanks to your reports!(f11)), i want to point on one particular one in todays update - help AI to build. Now player is able to add resources to AI houses in owned settlement and get +1 friendship for reach resource added. It was discussed recently in the community and this small addition is first step before i'll add something more significant here - like building quests or/and orders mechanics. And as usual, full list follows:

BUGFIXING
   Fixed issue when some soldiers were running at place when sending them to war-camp;
   Fixed issue when soldier didn't go to gathering spot at warcamp when being far away from the settlement;

   Fixed issue when army formations prefab was visible in the sky;
   Fixed issue when AI could build a house too close to city gates, blocking it;
   Both player and AI can't build a structure closer than 30m to city gates;
   Fixing false warcamp UI elements positions when using various screen resolutions;
   Farms name was added to global map icon in order to make orientation on the map bit easier;
   Fixed issue when player couldn't destroy owned building in the settlement where player wasn't a leader;
   Fixed issue when player could stuck at place after fighting an animal;
   Now structures can't be set too close to the water - both for player and AI;
   Creating of populated world was speed up a bit;
   Now player can help building houses in owned settlement, gaining friendship with house owner;
   Fixed issue when central info text was visible when global map was open;
   Fixed issue when player build empty house and finished house wasn't added to houses owned by player;
   Some changes were made in AI fighting script in order to increase performance;
   Fixed issue when player couldn't track settler from notice board when other location was tracking using global map;
   Fixed issue players save could be broken due to incorrect save of items in various houses (new game needed);
   Russian translation was updated;



IMPORTANT
1) Please, feel free to use built-in bug reporter (F11) - it will help development a lot.
2) If something is broken make sure you have verified game files and started new world, remember -KINGDOMS is still EA, i try to make saves compatibility for every new version of the game, but can't guarantee it all the time.

UPDATE 0.501 [CHANGEABLE PARAMETERS]
Mon, 20 July 2020



Welcome, lords and ladies of KINGDOMS!


0.501
As you may remember we're getting close to sieges stuff, war-camp development is almost over, but before jumping to that i decided to make a "performance" day before we'll jump forward. So todays update is mostly about improving performance, fixing most reported and critical bugs (hello, roads calculation) + adding some very important feature, some of you (i'm sure) will like. First - performance.

I know that there were report about lags during riding or travelling on fast speed. These lags were connected with applying of vegetation masks, so i made some changes there and there and now travelling became much smoother (but there is still a laaarge room for improvement). Next, bugfixing. Thanks to your reports, the most annoying bug - roads calculation window pop-up when it shouldn't (when sleeping, trading, looting etc.) was fixed. (Full list of changes follows, as usual).

And finally, new mechanic or i think more gameplay improvement. Now player can change all "speed" options right in game, so you don't have to start new game to change chopping or gathering speed, it can be made in-game now. Also i've set max settlers cap to 5000, it can be changed right in game as well, no new game is needed.

BUGFIXING
   Fixed issue when wall calculation took too much time after loading;
   Fixed issue when roads could be calculated wrong after starting new game, causing various issues (i.e. stuck "roads are calculated" window);
   Fixed issue when road didn't delete mask properly;
   Vegetation mask calculation scripts were rewritten in order to reduce (ideally - remove) lags when player is moving;
   Lags when riding a horse were reduced a bit;
   Fixed issue when interaction text was visible when enabling global map;
   Fixed issue when roads generation window could pop-up even when some UI element was active (looting, trading etc.);



IMPORTANT
1) Please, feel free to use built-in bug reporter (F11) - it will help development a lot.
2) If something is broken make sure you have verified game files and started new world, remember -KINGDOMS is still EA, i try to make saves compatibility for every new version of the game, but can't guarantee it all the time.
3) The game is still in development, it's NOT finished product, updates are coming 3-4 times a week and that will inevitably cause various issues. Updates for game in development and for finished game - are two absolutely different things, remember that. Game mechanics come and gone, bugs are being fixed and new ones appear all the time. Its a normal thing for development process.

UPDATE 0.503 [WARCAMP MANAGEMENT #3]
Wed, 22 July 2020



Welcome, lords and ladies of KINGDOMS!


0.503
Today's update is the last in war-camp management "series", as i said somewhere before - the only thing was left here were AI animations in war-camps, so here we are. When assigning a settler to a structure in war camp this settler will automatically move to spot and play animation - building, chatting etc. Important moment here is that i want to use these script in coming updates as well - for assigning settlers to siege towers, ram, battle-spots etc. If war-camp animations scripts won't show any issues, they'll be used in sieges - i hope we'll start at Monday already, after Friday bugfixing. Alongside I've fixed some bugs there and there (mostly war-camp issues), full list follows. Oh, yeah, almost forget, some bonus for those who want to experiment a bit - i've fixed "NPC max amount slider" in game setting and set max number to 10k - this is experimental though to understand how such number will affect total performance. Now to fixes:

BUGFIXING
   Delay between roads calculation was increased a bit;
   Fixed issue when roads masks for vegetation could be calculated incorrect on hilly terrain;
   Fixed issue when road generation screen could appear when player was on board of the ship, right after creating populated world;
   Fixed issue when player could start building a wall, when there were less than 4 houses in settlement, pop-up message was added as well;
   Fixed issue when NPC max setting wasn't saved correctly when changing it using game settings;
   Max NPC number on the map was increased to 10k (in game settings only!) - use with caution, needs testing;
   Animals path-finding script was changed a bit in order to increase performance;
   Fixed banner animation near war-camp commanders tent;
   Banners were added to all types of gates except 1;
   Fixed issue when banners on houses weren't changed correctly when changing banner using message board;
   Fixed issue when changing building type in war-camp new building was finished;
   Fixed issue when changing building type in war-camp calculated incorrect resources amount needed for building;
   Fixed issue when AI stood still sometimes when war camp was destroyed;
   Fixed issue when Soldiers in Camp and Soldiers Working values were calculated incorrect after loading a save;
   Fixed issue war-camp building weren't deleted properly after destroying war-camp;
   Commanding and Bandits perks icons were updated;
   Fixed issue when banner icon wasn't updated correctly when changing banner in settlement management window;
   Fixed issue when war-camp parameters were calculated incorrect when creating war-camp right after destroying previous-one;
   Fixed issue when assigned workers were calculated incorrect when creating fresh war-camp after destroying previous-one;
   Fixed issue when war-camp couldn't be deleted properly;
   Fixed issue when assigned workers weren't removed when building type was set to "nothing" in war-camp;
   Fixed issue when morale and supply percent value was shown incorrect when using war-camp management window;
   Fixed swords visibility for guards animations;



IMPORTANT
1) Please, feel free to use built-in bug reporter (F11) - it will help development a lot.
2) If something is broken make sure you have verified game files and started new world, remember -KINGDOMS is still EA, i try to make saves compatibility for every new version of the game, but can't guarantee it all the time.
3) The game is still in development, it's NOT finished product, updates are coming 3-4 times a week and that will inevitably cause various issues.

UPDATE 0.511 [DIALOG WITH BANDITS]
Mon, 27 July 2020



Welcome, lords and ladies of KINGDOMS!


0.511

Before we'll jump to adding siege stuff i decided to make a small break with wars to

1) add some stuff that was planned a long ago
2) take more time to think about siege mechanics once again - basic concept is ready, now i'm thinking of details and their realization;
3) fix and polish where needed war-camp mechanics, because they'll also be part of siege planning;
Soo, today i'll add some int resting stuff, that will be the base for more similar mechanics - dialog with attacking bandits. In the current build bandits behavior is not so much deep as it should be (and was designed) - they just attack player when player is approaching.

Now bandits are asking for money in dialog. And you as player can:

   Give those money and get rid of bandit for a while;
   Try negotiate and change final sum (depends on trading perks - both player and bandit);
   Attack
   Try to join the gang (possible only with bandits perks);

The tricky part was that it's the first time when aggressive AI starts conversation, so separate "talking" script was written. I want to use the same mechanics further - i.e. in apology when some settler was accidentally attacked or in quests - hate this word, but potential is quite good here, so i hope that new mechanic will work without issues.

At Wednesday we'll start with sieges - i have a plan to add stuff in several stages (like it was with warcamps), more info will come with Wednesday update.

Oh, yes, i've fixed tax collector - now when settler is far away, money will be taken from settlers storage - i hope it will solve the issue with settlers wandering far away.

BUGFIXING
   Fixed issue when part of the wall was spawned outside the settlement and stayed there even after save/load;
   Fixed issue when tax collector couldn't collect taxes from settlers, that were too far away, now if settlers is far away tax collector will take money from settlers storage;
   Fixed issue when player couldn't press "back" button in "i don't need your service anymore" dialog;
   Fixed issue when AI answer "Sorry, i can't teach you anything could loop";
   Fixed issue war-camp wasn't set properly sometimes due to script error;
   Now bandits are asking player for gold when meeting;
   Player now can ask bandits to join their camp during "asking for money" dialog;


FULL LIST OF UPDATES

IMPORTANT
1) Please, feel free to use built-in bug reporter (F11) - it will help development a lot.
2) If something is broken make sure you have verified game files and started new world, remember -KINGDOMS is still EA, i try to make saves compatibility for every new version of the game, but can't guarantee it all the time.
3) The game is still in development, it's NOT finished product, updates are coming 3-4 times a week and that will inevitably cause various issues.

UPDATE 0.513 [SIEGES - BARRICADES AND GATES]
Wed, 29 July 2020



Welcome, lords and ladies of KINGDOMS!


0.513
Today's update is the very first in "siege" series. But before i'll tell you about barricades and their function, i want to share with you the whole plan concerning coming sieges. As i said this Monday i want to deliver sieges mechanics in several stages:

   Barricades and gates;
   Defense towers reworking;
   Sending troops from war-camp and starting siege;
   UI and siege calculations: troops, defense, walls destruction, gates breach etc.
   AI siege-scripts and behaviors;
   Battle-animations and AI vs AI fights during siege;
   Using siege Technic - trebuchets, rams and siege towers;
   Final stage - taking the settlement;

As you can see, a lot of work is ahead, i think the most stuff will be added in 1 update, but some may take 2 (I bet at UI like it was with war-camps). So the final result will be here around end of August. On the way i want also ti improve some existing mechanics there and there - melee combat animations improving (for player), bodyguards system (similar to those we had already in 2017), new weapons (maybe!) like spear and crossbow etc. In example in today's update i've tweaked archery a bit - aiming system was changed, now you can use default dot to aim (not the current arrow position), which makes the whole shooting process much more intuitive. Plus arrow colliders were changed a bit.

Not to barricades. Each wall in settlement has 4 gates. if build. And player now can finally interact with those gates. To defend a settlement you can set up a barricade near wooden gates and close the gates for stone-ones. This mechanics will be used in defense calculation.

BUGFIXING

   Fixed issue when dialog with bandit was looped after player and bandit became friends (>10 friendship);
   Fixed issue when player couldn't attack bandits after choosing "join gang" in dialog;
   "Join gang" line was changed a bit in order to be more neutral;
   Archery was reworked a bit - aiming is now orienting on central dot (previous - on actual arrow position), arrows colliders were changed, where needed;
   Fixed issue when gates #2 blocked correct path-finding calculation, blocking exit/enter to the city for settlers;
   Gates #4 position was changed a bit in order to make entrance a bit higher;


FULL LIST OF UPDATES

IMPORTANT
1) Please, feel free to use built-in bug reporter (F11) - it will help development a lot.
2) If something is broken make sure you have verified game files and started new world, remember -KINGDOMS is still EA, i try to make saves compatibility for every new version of the game, but can't guarantee it all the time.
3) The game is still in development, it's NOT finished product, updates are coming 3-4 times a week and that will inevitably cause various issues. Updates for game in development and for finished game - are two absolutely different things, remember that. Game mechanics come and gone, bugs are being fixed and new ones appear all the time.

If you want to experience KINGDOMS as it was initially designed - smooth, without bugs and full of working mechanics - please, wait till final version will be out.

Thanks for your support, see you very soon!

UPDATE 0.521 [SIEGES #2 - DEFENSE TOWERS REWORKED]
Mon, 3 August 2020



Welcome, lords and ladies of KINGDOMS!


0.521
Today's update will bring some changes to defense towers functionality. Now each tower has new parameter:
   Observation radius

This parameter will affect how fast your guards will react on enemy army or warcamp. Also i've tweaked perks and resources needed to build towers. Full list of changes follows:

BUGFIXING
   Fixed issue when player could cancel crafting while crafting process, causing instant time speed up;
   Fixed issue when AI had not maxed speed when landing during player's crafting process;
   Fixed issue when AI didn't exit the house properly, without spawning near entrance after using animation place;
   Fixed issue when AI landing wasn't calculated properly sometimes, causing AI to stand near port for quite long time;
   Fixed issue when AI landing spot wasn't applied correctly causing to spawn at wrong coordinates;
   Fixed issue when bandits couldn't exit house properly when starting a fight;
   Fixed issue when after any fight AI teleported to last animation place instead of walking to house entrance;
   Distance was added to tracking icon;
   Fixed issue when player couldn't properly use objects that were under characters feet - logs, berries, vegetables etc.;
   Resources and perks need to build defense towers were reworked;
   Deference towers now have new parameter - "Observation radius";
   Fixed issue when players stats (HP, vigor etc.) were calculation during roads calculation;
   Fixed issue when recruiting soldiers line showed players name, but not AI's;
   Fixed issue when AI was playing "gather" animation near house entrance after using house to eat a meal;


FULL LIST OF UPDATES

IMPORTANT
1) Please, feel free to use built-in bug reporter (F11) - it will help development a lot.
2) If something is broken make sure you have verified game files and started new world, remember -KINGDOMS is still EA, i try to make saves compatibility for every new version of the game, but can't guarantee it all the time.
3) The game is still in development, it's NOT finished product, updates are coming 3-4 times a week and that will inevitably cause various issues. Updates for game in development and for finished game - are two absolutely different things, remember that. Game mechanics come and gone, bugs are being fixed and new ones appear all the time. Its a normal thing for development process. If you want to experience KINGDOMS as it was initially designed - smooth, without bugs and full of working mechanics - please, wait till final version will be out.

It's Friday and another pack of bugfixes are here. Most of them are about various pathfinding issues connected both with AI and animals. Also animals behavior scripts were changed a bit in order to make hunting less annoying because of unpredictable animals paths. Also some tweaks in melee were made.

BUGFIXING
   Fixed issue when animals spawn point could be set in the ocean;
   Fixed issue when animal could be chased into ocean;
   Animals moving path was tweaked a bit in order to make their movement a bit more predictable;
   Now when animal changes running trajectory pathfinding obstacles are calculated in order not to let animals to run trough various objects;
   Fixed issue when animals speed was too high sometimes, when running;
   Pathfinding scan setting were tweaked a bit in order to make AI and animals paths more accurate;
   Fixed issue when animals repath rate was too low when fighting, causing various pathfinding issues;
   Fixed guards animations at City Hall entrance;
   Fixed incorrect Y position for "writing" animation used for Tax-collector and Council in City Hall;
   Sword hit point for the player's sword was changed a bit in order to make sword to hit the target not to soon and avoid too fast strikes;
   AI now attacks more often and more aggressive;

UPDATE 0.531 [BANDIT'S RAIDS]
Mon, 10 August 2020



Welcome, lords and ladies of KINGDOMS!

0.531
In today's update we'll try to make AI attack settlements, as form of bandits raids. Now after some time (that depends on "War is declared every day(s)" parameter) bandits will come to closest settlement to attack settlers and steal money from dead bodies. Player can set in game options how much bandits is needed in gang to attack the settlement (from 1 to 10). If city has guards they will automatically fight with attackers. Basically this update is kind of test before the same mechanic will be added for more massive siege battles. When settlement is raided (or it will be under siege soon) player will get notification + visible UI with defenders and attackers numbers. Also, UI show current actions made both by defenders and attackers. As already said, i want to see how this mechanic will work and tweak it there and there to add it to wars mechanics.
Also, i've fixed some bugs connected with AI fighting, full list follows:

BUGFIXING
   Many speeds options cap was set to 5000%, that basically can turn the game into "Press E" simulator, can be used only in-game;
   Bandits now can raid nearest settlements and steal money from City Hall and attack settlers;
   Fixed issue when object's info icon could be visible when other UI windows were open (like trading, looting etc.);
   Raid's info window was added to UI, it will be visible when player is in raided settlement;
   Fixed issue when AI couldn't properly attack the enemy (except player), just standing near this enemy;
   Now if bandit kills peaceful settler, he/she takes all settlers money;
   Player can set up minimum number of bandits that can attack nearest settlement;
   If "NO WAR" option is enabled, bandits won't attack settlements;
   Fixed issue when dead settlers were sometimes counted as living ones in settlers list;
   Fixed issue when walls colliders weren't properly calculated as obstacles when calculating pathfinding grid;
