UPDATE 2 - BEASTMASTERY
8 Mar - Tormunda




Welcome to the latest free content update for Settlements: Beastmastery

This update introduces 2 new Characters Skills and 1 new World Skill, enabling you to power up, heal and breed a whole range of pets. Each specialised in one of 7 different forms of training.

31 New pets have been added to the game bringing the total amount of pets in the game to 45.

2 New repeatable adventures have also been added. These new adventures have random encounters in them that will scale with your current era as well as the treasure they guard.

To enhance the ability of pets, characters can now equip 2 separate pets at all times. A combat based pet and a support based pet.

I hope you all enjoy the new challenges that this update brings to the game as well as the new layer of mechanics the pet breeding offers.

Work continues on Chapter 2
12 Aug @ 11:44am - Tormunda

Hi everyone and thank you for the best wishes from those who knew I had been unable to work for some time.
I am now working on Chapter 2 of Evolution of Ages and thought it was time enough to show you the combat screen.



As you can see the combat in Chapter 2 is very different than in the first game.
Although I enjoyed the combat in Chapter 1, after some time, unless it was a boss fight, it was just a case of clicking and asking who won.

In the second game you will need to use terrain to your advantage and protect injured units.
Healing and agro management will still be as important in the second game as the first, however now you will be able to use choke points and flanking actions.

I am not able to work as fast as I did on the first game, however I will keep you posted with screenshots as the game comes together.

Thank you for all your support.
Tormunda

Christmas 2019 Game Event
Fri, 29 November 2019

2019 In-Game Christmas Event and new items!



As well as the annual Christmas event, this year I am also adding a few new items and changes to the game.

The Highwayman



This new era 6 rare drop is the first head item to have misc skill bonuses added to it. When worn it will increase the damage of your characters gunslinger weapons.

The Woodsman



The Woodsman is an era 5 rare drop that will boost the Critical Damage chance of archers. This item will stack with any critical bonuses obtained from special arrows.

The Cowboy



Era 7 was in dire need of extra headwear and the Cowboy hat is ideal. It is a rare drop that will add damage to your characters gunslinger weapons and is a direct upgrade to the Highwayman, offering more damage and a point of Status. On top of that it also drops the threat gain of the wearer, making it ideal for a healer/leader role.

Black Bess



What Highwayman would be without a new set of pistols? Black Bess is a rare drop for era 6 that rewards the character with a slight edge over the Fine Flintlock and with all rare drops it rewards larger bonuses per skill point.

DUAL WIELD

The dual wield system was not working correctly and as been fixed in this update.
The ranged damage display on your character will now show your off-hand melee weapon statistics and now works as intended.
This should allow characters to experiment with not only twin melee weapons but later on be able to place a sword in the prime melee hand and a pistol in the off-hand, as well as twin pistols.



The following changes have also been made.

   The livestock building has been given a slight boost to meat production.
   The text for the farm boosting pet has now had it's tooltip change to explain only food production building boosts. This does NOT include the livestock farm as that buildings main role is to produce hide & wool.
   The cost of buying the warrior skill from the character feat menu has been increased.
   The Tech tree for era 9 now explains that the Nuclear Power Plant produces electricity based upon the amount of Electric Grids that you have built across all Settlements. Warning: Without a full set of Electric grids, the Nuclear plant does not produce much electricity.


Happy Christmas
Tormunda

Patch 1.2.4.4.64
Mon, 2 December 2019

Minor Update

Patch 1.2.4.4.64

Just a quick patch today with some minor changes as listed below.



   The Tactical Shield Recipe has been added to the science unlock progress, it should now be available the same time as the Tactical Armour and Helmet. Anyone who has already progressed this far will receive the recipe when they next load a saved game.
   The Stage 1 Christmas tree now has a golden glow to make it stand out.
   The amount of baubles needed to reach the highest stage of the Christmas tree now clearly show.
   Hit points for pets in combat now correctly calculate based upon the characters Beastmastery skill.
   Removed the debug box that appeared when right-clicking on the stars on the character sheet.
   When digging in the last room of the Copper mine, the player will not be moved into the hidden room instead of just a small passage being shown. (This action requires a mining skill of 4).
