Dominions 4.05b

2014年4月12日

This is a quick patch to fix the music that doesn't loop properly and a crash bug when hosting an old game in Linux. Dominions 4.05b is fully compatible with version 4.05 and those versions can be mixed in multiplayer games.

关于游戏

You are a God! You are master and ruler of a loyal nation. You have unimaginable powers at your disposal. You have claimed this world as yours. But there are others who stand in your way. You must defeat and destroy these pretenders. Only then can you ascend to godhood and become the new Pantokrator.

In Dominions you take control of a powerful being that rules a nation and aspires to godhood. The type of Pretender Gods can vary from magically powerful arch mages to huge titans or large monuments. The pretender gods have different strengths dependent on what kind of god you choose and what nation you play.

When you start the game you decide what kind of god you are and how your Dominion affects your lands and followers. It is an expression of your divine might and the faith of your followers. If your dominion dies, so do you. Your dominion also inspires your sacred warriors and gives them powers derived from your dominion.

In order to win and become the one true god you have to defeat your enemies one of three different ways: conquer their lands, extinguish their dominion or claim the Thrones of Ascension.

In Dominions 4 you can also play team games where one of the players take the role of supreme god, and the other members of the team are his servants and loyal subjects. The lesser gods rule their nations, but you all share the dominion of the supreme god.

Dominions is set in a fantasy world that draws inspiration from historical nations, cultures and myths. You will not encounter the elves of conventional fantasy in this game. Instead you might lead a nation of vanir from old norse myth. Aztecs, romans, israelites, greeks, shona and kievian rus are just a few of the inspirational sources of the game.

The first Dominions game was released in 2002 and was well received by strategy gamers. Since then Dominions has been much refined and Dominions series is still actively played making it one of the longest running 4x turn based strategy games.

Dominions 4 is also a highly moddable game. You can create your own monsters, spells and entire nations. Since Dominions 3 there has been a vivid modding community and Dominions 4 will enhance this capability even further.

这个时代最好的4X回合策略游戏是什么?一般最先想到的大概是P社的历史游戏或者席德梅尔的文明,这两个固然是TBS的领军者,但在被遗忘了角落还躺着这个Illwinter独立制作的神域系列,虽然不敢说能超越前面两个,但我认为至少在很多地方可以一战甚至战胜,比如最明显的地方在这里——去它的历史,我们要魔法!

其实在定位上神域更接近全战系列,外交和建设部分被大幅简化,而战斗部分则非常重视,世界地图触发战斗以后会切入地区战场进行遭遇战,但比起全战我们有两个非常明显的缺点(优点),首先是画面很简陋,其次是切入战场后战斗是电脑自动演算的,玩家只能在战前规划阵型和指派基本指令。画面有个人喜好和配置问题先不说,自动战斗哪里好了?这游戏的大地图模式是所有势力同步决策的,配合自动战斗可以达成非常舒适高效的联机体验,尤其是通过Email来玩长期局,决策和战斗的时候并不需要玩家同时在线!!看,又一个地方可以击败那些TBS巨头,文明也好欧陆风云也好全面战争也好,那些系统就算支持多人游戏效率也非常低下。

不过我相信还是有很多人和我一样没朋友找不到人联机只能战AI,那么为什么不去玩内政系统更复杂还可以自由操纵战斗的全战呢?去它的历史,我们要魔法!好吧,虽然我是认真的,但还有另外的原因,首先神域有随机地图,其次神域4有75个国家,这保证了充足的可玩性。当我说有75个国家的时候,我指的不是国家之间只有贴图/模型不同辅以特长调整的大同小异的75个国家,而是兵种和战略展开上截然不同的75个国家(因为游戏分三个时期,平均每个时期25个国家,而有些国家时期变化后战术区别不会太大,所以说75个是有水分的,但即便如此依然很多),而且绝大多数都是以某个名族的神话或者文明为原型创造的,比如基于天朝天庭神话的T'ien Ch'i,基于日本妖怪传说的Yomi、Shinuyama和Jomon(同一民族三个时期时期的不同名字),基于希腊文明的Arcoscephale,基于克苏鲁神话的R'lyeh和Atlantis(分别是以星之眷族和深潜者为主的两个民族)等等,也有经典原创,比如亡灵统治的灰烬帝国中期Ermor,或者高山翼人为主的Caelum等等,虽然游戏本身没有剧情,但每个国家或者某些兵种都有很长的描述,结合三个时期可以拼凑出各个民族在神域世界的兴衰历史。

另外我再说些Illwinter社非常有爱的地方,每个士兵的全套独立数据分开计算,战场上的任何一个小兵都有HP、士气、疲劳度、经验值、战伤、装备、当下魔法状态等一大堆数据,神域里各种法术豁免和战斗计算都是回合制通过双方投掷2D6对抗来决定,加上可以和龙与地下城法术表一战的8个分支6大学派9个等级一共800多种法术(法术研究和施放还也是策略规划很重要的一部分),还要打造不同级别的魔法装备(共300多种)分派给将领,很有TRPG战斗规则通过电脑大规模战场化的感觉,同时又加大了游戏的拟真度和复杂度,不能更赞~

一个严重的问题是对新手很不友好,这么多国家和法术让人看晕先不说,进游戏之前要先定制一个伪神,但设计伪神的前提是熟悉当前国家,如果要充分利用法术系统的话也需要在熟悉国家的基础上进一步熟悉法术——这对没有基友手把手教的人来说根本不可能!设计伪神和研究法术是永远的难题……另外就是教程,请去阅读官网上的那本四百页的英文手册,除去后面浮夸的兵种简表和法术表,至少要啃前面一百三十页,除非你有基友手把手教你,不然强烈推荐这样做,自己摸索上手会很艰难。

-------路过的分割线-------
如果你已经玩过神域3,那么上面都是废话,下面稍微对比下3和4,4代和3代说实话玩起来没什么大的区别,仅仅是一个威力加强版,主要是改进了UI(真的好了很多!),加了些新国家新伪神化身新兵种什么的,某几个老兵种更新了外形,或者进行了一些数据上的调整(主要法师训练变贵变慢坑死不少国家),新增登神王座模式可以让大家抢点获胜,最后就是新增门徒模式终于可以玩家组队了(一个伪神队长加若干门徒队友,门徒使用伪神的神域)!过去只有Free for All说实话玩家结盟很不靠谱……不过似乎门徒模式让某些神域很有个性的国家(Ermor,说的就是你!)没法出场,当伪神也不是门徒也不是。所以如果手头有3了,那么不一定要升级成4(考虑到3代支持Mod更多,而且有非正式渠道可以入手),如果资金充裕,那么升级到4以后基本再也不需要3了,虽然贵了点,但我觉得还是很值的。

This game is too close to perfect 4x of my dreams, so I hardly will be objective in this case. I think, I will stick to "good/bad" parts instead, to show what is there.

So, my pros:

- Game is complex. Scalable complex. You can blindly research everything, and throw masses of your troops to win; or you can tinker with initial placement and orders; or you can plan anything - from right artifacts equipped to expert armies assembled - everything will work in single player... for some extent, of course. (Multiplayer requires good knowledge of game, so it will be complex by default).

- Game is vast and diverse. I cannot remember another strategy with at least 4 significantly different races to play (and no, 3 units and 2 advancements doesn't count as "significant"). Dominions 4 have dozens of races, and most of them requires different approach. Sometimes vastly different. There are hundreds of researcheable spells - and it's real, significant spells, not another "Fireball III" type of things. There are dozens of craftable artifacts too - from simple helmets and boots to unique Holy Arc or Staff of Mages that can be only one per game. And there are whole lot of magic sites! And random events too! You got the picture.

- It have planned orders, and what more important - turn-based AI-controlled battles with initial order queue! I think, it's most realistic turn-based scenario: in real battles it's local commanders who matters, not warlord - after initial plan developed, of course.

And now contras:

- Graphics. Poor pixellated graphics from 90s. I still believe that good pixel artist could vastly improve visuals here - but, well, I am not the author, and forums thinks that graphics not matters. Oh, well.

- Interface. It greatly improved since first installation, but still can be very unintuitive here and there. And many commands accessible only via hotkeys. And no filters and sorting for statistics. And not very elaborating reports for everything that are not battles... Oh, well, it definitely could be much better.

- No diplomacy. No pacts, trades, unions or anything. Last part have "minions" system, but it not matters much for single-player, given you AI-controlled armies - and that's all. I think, MP-games more affected by that, but I am not a big fan of multiplayer.

- Limited exploration. You can see whole map right from the beginning. Of course, you cannot see province details, enemy armies, and all magic sites still must be searched individually - but still, in my dreams it could be better!

- Realms-based gameplay. I like to be free, with vast territories, journeys to foreign places and founding cities where I need them. Well, not that game, obviously.

But regardless of described flaws, game remains one of most big, and complex, and elaborate 4X-strategy on market. I love it. Strongly recommended.

My impressions of Dominions 4 (~15 hours) is that Illwinter has come up with another winner. Be warned though, this is a game for folks who really enjoy turn-based strategy games (TBS), especially multi-player TBS (Disclaimer: I have not tried Dominions 4 MP yet, but Dominions 3 MP was tremendous). But if you are looking for high-end graphics, a gentle learning curve, hand-holding tutorials or a casual strategy gaming experience, you may want to look elsewhere.

However, if you are a fan of TBS games, Dominions 4 has tremendous depth, content and attention to detail. From the ability to customize your god to each race with unique abilities, there are many variables to make each game unique. Gameplay can be a bit daunting initially, but rewards players who carefully plan and execute those strategies.

My only negative at this time regarding Dominions 4 is it appears to be a bit too similar to Dominions 3 which I played heavily in the pre-Steam days. I’ll update this review after additional playtime with other factions and MP to highlight some of the changes from Dominions 3.

I bought the predecessor game when it was on sale and played it so many hours that I decided the full price for this game was a good investment. As I write this review, it is on sale (BUY IT NOW!) but I'm not very upset for not waiting. The graphics are way better (still crap though), particularly with the default map textures. Several new items were added, and some were rebalanced while others were rewritten to reflect actual affects. A couple new races... units... spells... blah blah Everything got an upgrade just like a sequel is supposed to do. (Finally a developer _actually_ does that!)

Turn based means you can play at whatever leisure works best for you. You can play on the same computer (hotseat), by e-mail (PBM), or drop your turns in whatever convenient server will host files for public access (ie Dropbox). Very similar lengths like Risk and Axis&Allies, you could play for an afternoon with friends or play for months with rivals. You could play four games simultaneously as long as you're not running four instances of the program (there is a rule of thumb about more than four games, you need two brains or something like that). You could even play a marathon until interrupted and come back the next day exactly where you left off.

I was looking for a game that had serious themes and dark humor. I was looking for a game that focused on stratetic management rather than tactical maneuvers. I was looking for a game that I could not learn to exploit every weakness in an hour. I was looking for a game that had replay value through meaningful starting choices. I was looking for a game based on gameplay rather than being entirely based on its graphics. I found it and then bought its sequel. You should save some money and buy this one straight away.
