Version 1.6: Improved AI

We are releasing version 1.6 today. 

  • The Main improvement in this version is the AI:
    • The AI has been upgraded with a more flexible algorithm. It is now "task based". There are 3 main attack tasks: stand-off attack, zerg attack and flank attack, along with several other tasks (pick up weapon, investigate noise, patrol, etc.)
    • Each task is given a score depending of various factors and the task with the highest score is executed first.
    • This make the AI smarter and also more unpredictable. 
  • Other improvements
    • UI improved selection of enemy versus creation of path
    • Option to disable selection of path with left button mouse click ( for users that prefer to create path by dragging)
    • improve grenade explosion particle effects
  • Bug fixes:
    • using rotate button and dropping or requiping caused turn to hang
    • problems caused when soldier throws grenade and trys to move immediately after
    • remember to run cutscene even if first battle is aborted, or restarted
    • overwatch decals not displayed when changing position

Game saves are compatible with the previous version

Thank for still not abandoned the game. You are our hope!

Don't worry, that's not going to happen

Hey Ed, I am gonna give it a try soon. Can I download the full version at the same server as last time (version 1.5)?

Yep, the latest version is there, 1.6 (not 1.5)
