Warsim 0.8.3.5 (The Overwhelmingly Positive Update, 500 features)

Hey Everyone,

So after 3 years in early access Warsim has hit Overwhelmingly Positive on steam. A fantastic milestone that is purely thanks to the players and the community. As a thank you I've spent the last few weeks working on a 500 feature update for the 500 reviews that got us the Overwhelmingly Positive tag. It's a mix of content but the main and crowning feature is the Great Gnome Casino! Thanks again everyone, this is literally a dream come true! <3

Here it is! - https://i.imgur.com/3rQy0AT.png

In celebration I'm also launching a 35% discount on Warsim for the next two weeks on both steam and itch.io!

Warsim 0.8.3.6 (The Quality of Life Update, 119 features)

Hey Everyone,

The last week and a half has been amazing, since the Overwhelmingly Positive update we've had a ton of new amazing reviews and nearly 1000 new Warsim players! To everyone new, Welcome :)

This update is a pretty broad one, lots of little fixes and quality of life additions. I'm still working through a mix of bug reports and backlogged suggestions while also working through the combat update plans.

NAME SUFFIX SYSTEM EXPANDED (3 features)

For a long time certain name suffixes have been able to have addons added to them 'Garbald the Sad' could also be 'Garbald the Sad Knight' or 'Garbald the Sad Raider' modified by Warsim's in-game suffix add on system. Unlike adding new name suffixes, adding new suffix addons was a harder process done only within the games code. I set out to completely replace that system and have it fully moddable and accessible just like the suffix system is, so now in a new text file called 'Name Suffix Addon.txt' in the main Warsim Data folder you can find all of the possible addons followed by the battlescore bonus they provide. While expanding this system I added a ton of new addon parts which has led to over a quarter of a million new possible random name suffix combinations. You'll see these as hirable champions, staff members, enemy rulers etc. This system is even more exciting for me because unlike the 3000ish current name suffixes, all of these will be random and unpredictable combinations that will even catch me offguard. Being caught offguard with random content in a game I've spent 5 years making and know like the back of my hand is always a bonus!

* Added new moddable system for name suffix addons
* Added 265 new name suffix addons (was 57 now 322 total) (With 1199 total modifiable name suffixes this means there are 386'078 possible random name suffix combinations now)
* Made name suffix addon system 2x more likely to be used when generating names

Some of the random names created by the new system - https://i.imgur.com/nwb460p.png

MILITIA GROWTH (2 features)

A good point was made on our discord by Paul-2020 about not being able to see Militia unit growth, I've now added mention of it to the end of turn report.

* Added ability to see how many peasants have joined the milita each year in end of turn report (credit Paul-2020)
* Added alternate text for militia recruiting a single peasant in end of turn report

New end of turn report notice - https://i.imgur.com/MzqqNlH.png

NEW KINGDOM TITLES (5 features)

Some new titles for kingdoms and their rulers and lords that can spawn in your world, thanks for the suggestions guys!

* Added 2 new rare king titles 'The Sleeping God' and 'The Dead God' 1 in 1000 chance of appearing as a king title (credit Pathfinder)
* Added new kingdom type 'Pact' with ruler 'Grand Master' and lord 'Pact Maker' avaialble for civ level 3 and above (credit Pathfinder)
* Added new kingdom type 'Alliance' with ruler 'Overseer' and lord 'Guardian' avaialble for civ level 4 and above (credit Pathfinder)
* Added new kingdom type 'Tyranny' with ruler 'Tyrant' and lord 'Underling' avaialble for civ level 3 and above (credit 5HO)
* Added new kingdom type 'Cult' with ruler 'Great One' and lord 'Worshipper' available for civ level 3 and above (credit Pathfinder)

SUDDEN DEATH IMPROVED (4 features)

A few fixes to the games text and now a much better option to forfeit the game with it's own screen, thanks Prof Nonagon for pointing it out!

* Fixed 10 text bugs in sudden death game text
* Added indicators of gold changed and gained for opponent when winning and losing sudden death
* Added new screen for forfeiting sudden death game

* Removed redundant error messages for attacking dead factions in combat screen

New option on attack screens - https://i.imgur.com/uh90VfX.png

DOMAIN NAMES IMPROVED (2 features)

I'm not talking about .com's here, there's a rare chance that a kingdom of gnomes could end up being called "Dibble's Domain" however this system was bugged and resulted in a lot of these 'Domain' names not coming out as intended. After a surpring number of 'fixes' not actually fixing it I managed to get it all sorted. I don't see these names too often in game as there's a 1 in 60 odds of them appearing in the 5 kingdoms you get per game. I've decided to make it a much higher 1 in 6 odds so you'll be seeing these a little more often.

* Fixed issue with 'domain' based kingdom names generating brokenly ie "'s Domain"
* Made domain based names 10x more common

TROOP TREE IMPROVEMENTS (3 features)

When vieiwing the troop tree of independent kingdoms you will now be able to compare them with your own and see more information.

* Reworked troop tree screen in independent kingdom diplomacy
* Added the option to compare your default 3 troop tiers with independent kingdoms in diplomacy (u/videovillain)
* Added colour changing breakdown depending on if troops in the same tier are greater, worse, or the same as eachother

A mixed troop tree - https://i.imgur.com/OEAcT3C.png

Warsim 0.8.3.7 (The Birthday Update, 260 features)

Hey Everyone,

So tomorrow (monday) is my 26th Birthday. A few weeks ago in preparation for this I figured it would be nice if I did a little 26 feature update to celebrate, but ended up instead aiming for 260 features, which has had been a ton of work. I decided to focus the main effort of the update on the complete rework of the second region of the Eastern lands, known as the Lost Jungle. Until now in my opinion it's one of the worst regions for having basically nothing worth doing there, so I've tried to change that.

LOST JUNGLE OVERHAUL

The new lost jungle - https://i.imgur.com/uSQDMOl.png

MUSHROOM MEN REWORKED (3 features)

Warsim discord member LeMachinga sent in a very interesting set of redesign concepts for the current Mushroom men face generator. I looked over them and compared and his version was in my opinion, better than the default. So I set out to rework the mushroom faces to fit his design, and in the process beefed up the generator to have an extra 1.44 billion new faces. As a thanks for his contribution to the mushroom men design, one of the random possible mushroom man character names is Mushinga, a reference to LeMachinga. Thanks mate! :)

* Redesigned mushroom men faces based on LeMachinga's version of them (credit LeMachinga)

THRONE ROOM MANAGEMENT IMPROVED (3 features)

After a discord discussion between LeMachinga and LeechGirl the idea to allow a maximum number of visitors to the throne room was raised. It's a great suggestion and adds to our recent option to send away a custom number of visitors. Now players can set any limit they want and each year if the number of visitors exceeds this they will be sent away.

* Added new ability to set a maximum limit of visitors to the throne room (credit LeMachinga)
* Added screen for setting a maximum visitor limit higher than current visitors resulting in some being kicked out
* Relabelled the '4) Send away some or all of the throne room visitors' to '4) Manage the number of visitors' to fit better

* Added ability to convert slave soldiers into slaves using the slave pen upgrade (credit TJ)

WHAT'S NEXT

I'm taking a week off for my birthday (milking it I know), when I come back it'll be combat update as usual. Thank you all for being such a fantastic and supportive community. All the comments, the reviews, encouragement and support has been and still is lifechanging for me. I'm humbled to be able to survive on making this game and to take on board all the great feedback I get to make the game better than it would ever be alone. Thank you all so much, I'll see you in a week! <3

Cheers

Make the Codex Great Again!
Recently got the itch to play Warsim again. There's just something about it that puts it one level above other kingdom management sims. I don't know if it's the content richness or the sheer number of choices you can make or the simplicity of the interface, but this should easily be considered an indie classic.

On a sidenote, Wastelander404 have you made a million bucks out of this yet? :)

He hasn't made a million yet, but I remember him mentioning somewhere that he's been living exclusively off this game for the past 2-3 years.

Btw anyone know how to convert slaves into peasants? The only option I found was to free them. It's weird that you can convert all peasants into slaves at a whim, but you can't just re-integrate them into your kingdom as citizens.

Hey guys, sorry I've been a little absent lately but cheers for all the comments!

udm That's super awesome to hear man, honestly comments like that make my week!

And man, I wish I made a million from this. As Aemar says I'm able to support myself on the income here in the UK. Some weeks I'm not but over all it levels out quite well and I save all that I don't have to spend.

I've currently sold 27'000 copies at a mix of sale prices and when the game was priced lower, but I've worked out that after steams cut and other costs I'd need to sell exactly 260'416 copies to make 1 million in gbp, and somewhere around 183k copies to make 1 million usd.

I don't know how possible that is, given the graphical niche-ness of the game and the saturation of the games market, but I've been working on this shit for 6 years now and plan to keep at it at least another year or so, after which I'm going to do everything I can to promote it and get it some attention.

Steam could handle as many people as came to view the store page so the real goal is to get as much attention as possible. I don't know how likely it is to get 260k copies sold but fuck me, it would be a lifechanging dream if it ever came true.

On that note, If anyone has any ideas how I could reach more people I'd be all ears haha.

Niggerino Cheers mate, everything is good, I've been working on a large overhaul to the combat system and in the last month since I've started it's gone from 15% complete to nearing 30% complete. Still a lot of stuff to do but so far I've done

* 100 Different intro events for different groups and races before the battle starts
* A weather system where races can be made weaker or stronger by the weather, ie Night Trolls struggle in day weather, but Lightning Trolls do very well in Lightning storms.
* A system with 60 different Weather events that can happen depending on which of the 25+ weather types is active
* A system of random events that can happen in battle (currently 63 but I'm aiming for 100+ by the time I'm finished)

udm As for the slaves to peasants thing, unfortunately there's no direct conversion. When freeing them some choose to join you, but the idea is that if granted freedom some may choose to fully take it and not work for you.

I see your point about the reintegration of peasant slaves though. I guess some should potentially join the militia and other locations. Definitely something to keep in mind.

Perhaps reintegration of all slaves would take a sum off the kingdom's coffers, to avoid breaking balance? Anyway reason why I asked is because I converted my peasants to slaves, but couldn't get any of them to work in mines (only peasants could). I'm all for an enslaved populace, but I better be able to whip them to do everything that my peasants could, and then some ;)

Glad you're still doing ok bud!

Your best bet is probably through youtubers. You're one SsethTzeentach video away from being rich!

udm, Cheers mate, I appreciate the discussion.

And cheers for the kind words man, I hope you guys are all good going too!

Niggerino, Definitely mate, I've hit up Sseth twice. He replied a few years back that he liked the look of the game but had a hugely backed up schedule. I hit him up again a few months ago but didn't get a reply unfortunately, but I understand how it is, guy probably gets spammed so much.

When I get nearer release I'm planning to contact as many yters as possible and do everything else I possibly can too and raise as much awareness for any who would be interested.

Even coming to this forum was kind of part spreading the word, I didn't know what response I'd get here but it's been one of the better forums for sure thanks to all you guys!

Hey Everyone,

So it's been quite some time since the last release and that feels terribly uncomfortable for me if I'm being honest, but it's been for the greater good of getting this combat update progressed. In the last month the combat update has gone from about 15% done to 28% done and I'm gearing up for getting it to the point where I could potentially pre-release it to be tested and played by everyone which will be exciting.

As for this update, this is a collection of all sorts of side things worked on alongside this month. The majority of this stuff has come from discussion in the community forums/discord/subreddit and bug reports. Thanks everyone who lurks or is active in the community and those who've recently discovered Warsim, it's always very motivational to see all the activity and discussion!

CUSTOM GAME SETTINGS REWORKED (21 features)

The custom game option is meant to allow players to start a game that is customised and tweaked to their liking, but in many ways this custom game system was lacking. I've reorganised it a bit and added a bunch of new features such as, the ability to tweak the arena, and to start the game owning Darkdale, Blackmarket, and the Arena. As well as lots more customisation with the bandit horde and bandit gangs.

BANDIT HORDE FRIENDSHIP (11 features)

When you have a truce and a good relationship with the Bandit Horde, why not see some benefits of it. Now the bandits may occasionally send you gifts, but much more so if you have a higher relation. Gifts could include, a cut of gold from a raid, some goblin slaves, a new bandit hero as your champion, and more!

* Added chance of Bandit Horde sending you a gift if you have a truce with them

FRIEND OF THE MERRY MEN (6 features)

When bandit gangs form, there are many types of bandit they could be. Most are better are recruiting, or more vicious, or steal more, but Merry Men and Honest Men are your more Robin Hood types. TJ suggested having them be recruitable if you had 100 public opinion. Now you'll have the option and if they do join you, there's a chance the leader will offer to join you as a champion.

* Added ability to attempt to recruit minor bandit gang if they are Merry Men or Honest Men and you have 100 public opinion (credit TJ)

BRAWL PIT UPGRADE COST CHANGES (2 features)

After a discussion with Themastaman it was made clear that 40k of upgrades and sometimes less than 500 gold per turn in profit isn't a good mix at all. I've reduced the prices by a fair bit to make it a bit more balance.

WHAT'S NEXT

I'm returning to combat update stuff next week and am going to start looking at the fundementals of having the new combat system merged into the game with the current standard combat. I'm expecting some issues but if I can get it to work I could potentially get this early combat rework released much earlier than previously planned. This will be exactly what I've been sharing in combat update screenshots and posts but not much more than that.

Once It's released I'm looking forward to the feedback and of course from then on any combat update work won't be hidden away but will be released like regular updates. I'm giving myself 2 weeks to get this combat merge done but it could be longer depending on how things go.

I'm excited about the idea of it though!

Thanks for reading and I hope everyone is doing well :)

Aemar I wish mate, I made good progress though. I still have a ton of stuff to do but my next step with the combat stuff is to merge it in with the main game and release it.

I'm hoping to do that within the next month. I got sidetracked a bit as my computer broke but luckily I've been able to get it sorted so I'm working on some little things and then will be returning back to combat to get it pushed out.

The current combat stuff I've done is already going to make things better but there's a ton more that I need to do so still a way to go.

Cheers for commenting though, hope you're doing well :)

Warsim 0.8.3.9 (The Arena Remastered Update, 114 features)


The Arena was once the heart of the games one on one combat, but in the time since it's addition years ago, brawling/scorpion pit fights and more have been added, and all of them have been displayed a lot better than the Arena, despite the Arena being a huge centre piece. This has always bothered me but I've never had the chance to do anything about it and so have been saving a list of ideas and suggestions for the Arena for a while. I ended up here by mistake as I was working on some Arena bugs and got so deep in I figured... well, I'm here now, might as well overhaul it.
There are tons of different features and additions in this update and it's taken a lot of work, but I'm very happy to be able to finally show it, I hope you guys enjoy! :)
THE ARENA REMASTERED (53 features)
I went through the Arenas entire system and rewrote a lot of it, there are now 100s of new fight moves, scores of new sound effects and events, and a lot more randomisation and chaos.
* Added new improved move by move fight system for the Arena
* Made the move by move fight system the default option (no more entire fight at once)
* Added the ability to enable the old Arena all at once system
* Added display of HP for Arena fighters
* Added coloured changes to HP for health getting lower

SLAVE GAUNTLET (4 features)
While working through my old Arena plans I saw a suggestion for a slave gauntlet by UltimateBlade from the Audiogames forums, It looked like a cool idea so why not. Now as long as you own the Arena and have 8 slave soldiers you can host a tournament for their freedom, and your profit. It will differ from normal tournaments in the way that you can't bet, and that it makes you money instead of costing it. This could be yet another avenue for profit for an unscrupulous evil ruler, or a slave baron.
* Added a new tournament type 'Slave Gauntlet' (Only if you own the Arena and if you have 8 slave soldiers) (credit UltimateBlade from Audiogames)
* Added new scenes and text for Slave Gauntlet
* Added -1 public opinion drop for running a slave gauntlet
* Added between 100-1500 gold profit for hosting a slave gauntlet in your Arena

THE EXECUTION OF A CHAMPION (27 features)
A nice suggestion from Anarcho-Raoism on our discord for executing champions got me thinking, so I present to you a new system with lots of outcomes and randomisation!
* Added the option to execute a grand champion (Credit Anarcho-raoism)

* Added take my gold outcome (includes of option to accept gold and exile instead of execute)
* Added crying champion outcome

A LIMITED OCCURANCE (7 features)
Infinite fights per year was a bit excessive, and also allowed the cherry picking of when to bet and when not to. Now each year there will be a limited number of fights in the Arena depending on the size of the Arena. This won't be very noticable at the higher level of Arenas unless you are an arena fanatic.

OTHER ARENA TWEAKS (6 features)
While working on this big arena feature addition I ended up adding and fixing things in other areas too, the one I'm most excited for is the hall of fame changes. Now when a champion dies in a normal fight, if he is added to the hall of fame, the hall of fame entry will track who it was that killed him. Previous the entries didn't have this information and still worked ok, but with this information it adds another element to the hall of fame, maybe the number one champion of all time was defeated by the number 8, perhaps some of the hall of famers were defeated by champions who themselves were defeated too quickly to enter the hall of fame themselves but are forever immortalised as the ones who defeated the greatest champions. It's a minor change but in my opinion it's quite a big improvement to the hall of fame and I'm super excited to see the new hall of fame stories develop while I'm playing.
* Added arena hall of fame entries now show you who defeated them
* Fixed issue with arena 32 man tournament second stage graphic
* Fixed text bug with public opinion loss for grand champion arrest
* Added missing menu option for housing upgrades in arena
* Removed irrelevant warning texts for bribing grand champion to fight
* Added new screen for bribing grand champion but there isn't a grand champion
Active hall of fame - https://i.imgur.com/gagfhOj.png
COLOURFUL SCORPIONS (10 features)

* Added purple colour for enchanted scorpions
* Added green colour for questionable (goblin) scorpions
* Added dark grey colour for black scorpions

* Added white colour for white scorpions
* Added green colour for healthy scorpions
Two shots of colourful scorpions in action - https://i.imgur.com/smCu5yL.png https://i.imgur.com/uxCWTSy.png
DUMBLE-PACK (2 features)
The scourers of the Artifact Market may know of the artifact 'The Staff of Dumble' a staff that if given to a champion who bears the name 'Dumble' it will double their strength. The issue with this is there are only 4 Dumble-esque names in game and the odds of them occuring are super slim among the 1776 other human names that could be chosen. The artifact was always made to be a practically impossible one to pull off, but to help a little I've quadrupled the amount of Dumble-esque names in game, good luck!
* Added 12 new human names 'Dumblesquek, Dumbledink, Dumbledonk, Dumbledork, Dumbletwoo, Dumbledimp, Dumbledok, Dumbledoop, Dumbledonk, Dumbletork, Dumbledee, Dumbledwep' (credit NotFox)
* Added ability to give the dumble staff to a dumble champion directly from the arena menu
BUGFIXES (3 features)
A handful of bugs based on helpful reports from players. Thanks guys :)
* Fixed text bug with demon advice (credit Fatalweirdo)

EVERYTHING ELSE (2 features)
A few changes unrelated to everything else
* Made 'press space bar to skip' option now say 'Hold space bar to skip' (credit Adrive)
* Made 777 on Warsim main menu open up an Arena Fight tester
WHAT'S NEXT

What's the difficulty level on something like this? I played several Infocom text adventures years ago but that's as far as I got in text/ASCII-based games. Dwarf Fortress seemed daunting so I avoided it. Just took at look at the developer's page on Steam. Dude has a sense of humor :lol: That Star Fleet II port for Windows, while not fully ASCII, also looks intriguing.

JackOfOwls I feel you on the learning curve of some games. I think Warsim is significantly easier to pick up than games like DF. If you did pick it up I'd recommend playing at an easier difficulty to give you a chance to get familiar with the game and then you'd be fine.

The game has no complex shortcuts to remember, it's just choices on menus. But there are lots of choices and lots of menus. It's complex is gameplay rather than complex to control

Make the Codex Great Again!
JackOfOwls I would also liken it to KODP, but with ASCII graphics, many more things to do, and less stressful. In fact, if anything, Warsim is basically Feature Creep: The Official Strategy Game, but in a good way.
