This week I’ve been travelling, so things have been a bit chaotic, but I’ve got some good news for you regarding the v2.50 update, as well as a heap of new videos. :)
Let’s get to it!
v2.50 Progress Update + List Builder
As some of you know, all of the army lists are currently manually created by me using MS Word, which means that I have to write all of them, plus calculate the point costs for each of the thousands of units and upgrades manually.
This is an absolute pain, and is one of the things that has slowed down development of the games over time. Every time I want to change a special rule, I have to go through the 100+ army books and manually find and edit each individual unit and upgrade that is affected.
Moving into the future, this is not sustainable, and so with the help of a few members of the community (you know who you are boys!), we have been working on a new system that will completely re-vamp how armies are created in the future.
This system will allow me, and anyone that is subscribed on Patreon, to easily create armies online, which have an automated calculator that immediately gives you the point values for everything. The armies are then saved and shared online, for everyone to enjoy.
On top of that, there will be a list builder, which allows you to prepare your lists to play the game, without having to write down and manually add unit costs up. This system will be similar to BattleScribe, so if you’re already familiar with that, you’ll feel right at home.
We believe that these two systems will completely revolutionize how army creation and list building work, making for a much smoother and seamless experience for everyone. Soon enough we’ll be able to share these tools with everyone, and then you can finally play the v2.50 beta in all of its glory!
In the meantime, check out the beta army lists by clicking here.
