alpha build 43 - now 46

Post by dustin » Fri Mar 12, 2010 8:17 pm

Castle Vox alpha 0.43 can now be downloaded here:
http://sillysoft.net/vox/alpha/

some of the changes:

map files can include agent="Boring" (or any other agent name) in the player XML to lock-in a player to a certain bot.

Random ai mode

random and no player selection

draws continent border in the continent colors

includes the beta map Middle East

changes the unit attack/defend values:
Infantry have a stronger defence and cost more than before.
Knights have a weaker attack than before.

Thank you!!! :P

(and you mean Infantry have a stronger defense not attack right?)

yes, I meant stronger defence. I figured it was at least worth a test...

Let me get this straight - if a player owns a tile, and moves more infantry or knights into that tile - these new pieces are using def stats if the tile is also entered by an enemy.

I am getting a message of connection refused.

Is that due to a full server, server down, or some other problem?

The multi-player server gets taken down sometimes during development.
