Round 61 Changes

General Lots of cleaning up of old, used data from the database. Trimmed a lot of unused code from the Tick Service, which is risky but extensive testing (for a change) has shown no problems. Spell cooldowns now use ticks instead of hours. And all previous spell cooldowns adjusted accordingly. Barbarians improvements in Tribalism increased…

Round 60 Changes

General Prestige gains perks now also apply to Expeditions. Barbarians get a new improvement (Tribalism), into which they invest each tick. The amount invested is 4,000 * (1 + [Ticks] / 1000). Theft 3.0: Theft is no longer a single spy-op that you spam at a target. Instead, you go to the new Theft page,…

Round 59 Changes

General Barbarian target DPA (and OPA) is now based on the Barbarian’s own number of ticks in the round, not the total round ticks. This means late-starting Barbs don’t suddenly jump to the DPA required for the time they join. Barbarians now favour building Sheds slightly more (90% of all hills, up from 70%). Factions…

Round 58 Changes

General Dominion stats changed from integers (INT) to big integers (BIGINT), allowing for far greater values to be stored. Production and consumption now stop in abandoned dominions. Factions Armada Plunder removed from Battleships. Artillery Cannot send expeditions. Cannons gain instant return. Dark Elf Slave Soldiers releases into 1 prisoner. Dimensionalists Not playable in round 58….

Round 57 Changes

General Protection starting resources changed to 0 except food. Construction, rezoning, and exploration are free for everyone for the first protection tick. While submitting to a deity, you are not allowed to take action against other dominions outside of your range but dominions outside of your range can take action against you, until the submission…

Round 56 Changes

General Resources 2.0! — beta We are now beta testing Resources 2.0. There is a high risk of resource-related bugs this round. Resources have been decoupled from the Dominion class, same as Spells 2.0, Buildings 2.0, and Imps 2.0. This means it’ll be a walk in the park to add unique resources, which in turn…

Round 55 Changes

General Lots of code clean-ups and trimming of the database. Should have no impact, or maybe save fractions of milliseconds of load times. Info ops removed. Op Center and Intelligence replaced by Insight: Only available once the round starts. Real-time view of all advisors of all dominions which are not protection and whose rounds have…

Round 54 Changes

General Land target added to rounds. Pure technical change. The game now keeps track of number of ticks that have taken place, which marks the beginning of a gradual shift away from anything time-based to pure tick-based. Any perk that is based on ticks does not count protection ticks. Only ticks of the round as…

Round 53 Changes

General Guards/Leagues 2.0: Deities From the Government page, you can now devote your dominion to a deity in exchange for some perks (good and bad). Because I expect changes, I’ve decided not to list deities and their perks here and instead deployed them on the sim: https://sim.odarena.com/scribes/deities For every tick that you remain devoted to…

Round 52 Changes

General Tick Service 1.1: a bunch of technical changes will be tested (and changed) during the round. Expect things to get buggy and spicy as I try new features to reduce/remove frozen ticks (or at least reduce the damage they cause). Casualties Calculator 1.1: big under the hood changes. All old stats and imps (before…
