This update gives you a new Hungarian Unit model set, Mexican revolutionary models for the Federales, Villistas and Zapatistas plus updated Chinese Units.

Mac & Linux Updates

Another small update for this week. We think the recent Mac issues and the Linux Black Screen problems are now solved with this release. Other than that we fixed the decal bug on the Dreadnought and fixed an error in the Research Tree.

Launcher v1.0.59103.128

System

  • Fix for Linux black screen issue
  • Updated to work with new Mac OS specs.

    Scenario Content

Un bon jeu sur la première guerre mondiale de type "grand strategy", aux multiples paramètres à découvrir. Côté réalisation, c'est un peu daté, mais tient la route. Les musiques sont vraiment à revoir par contre... Côté gameplay, c'est solide mais parfois obscur, il faut tenter des choses pour comprendre certains aspects. Le plaisir de la découverte :)

Plutôt réservé aux fans du genre cependant.

Vous pouvez découvrir le jeu plus en profondeur dans cette vidéo (une prochaine suivra pour montrer plus de gameplay) :

I recently posted a negative review of this game because the CD key didn't work - or so I thought. The company's tech support worked with me and determined that the fault was indeed mine, not the game's. I am hereby retracting my negative review and posting a positive one, with a public apology.

Making History II: The Great War is a grand strategy game set around the time of World War I (there are two starting scenarios, one starting in 1912 and another starting before the assassination at Sarajevo in 1914 going into the 1920s and the Soviet Revolution) This game consists of the entire world cut into small regions, accurately representing the borders and geography of all countries that existed at the time of your chosen scenario, with various populations, cities, and resources in each region. In this game (it is a turn based strategy game with each turn taking 1 week) you can choose any country in the entire world and lead that country, industrializing it, modernizing it, engaging in diplomacy with other countries, waging war, facing crisis such as rebellion, invasions, and famine. This game also implements an event system with some events that follow actual history such as the building of the Panama Canal, and others that will be triggered by drastically changing history such as the unification of Scandinavia or the resurrection of the Byzantine Empire. Another interesting thing is that at any time in the game you can save your game and then resume it playing as another country (even countries that didn't exist at the beginning of the scenario you are playing) Another thing that this game possesses is an internal editor that can be used to change many aspects of the game, from creating new countries to changing the values of regions such as nationality or religion. Using the editor you can create amazing new scenarios of alternate history that you can then play and publish to the main website. After about 70 hours of this game I can definitely recommend it,

If you are a fan of Paradox Games, Imperial Glory, other Geo Political games such as Super Power 2 you will enjoy this game. The game can be a little overwhelming at first, There is a bit of a learning curve but can easily be learned even with out the tutorial if you have played similar games.

I love the amount of depth this game has, Although war is a major focus point it is far from being the only point. One thing i dislike in similar games is a vast amount of waiting around with nothing to do. This game has plenty to manage while you are waiting for troops to build. If i had to compare this game to another game Supreme Ruler comes to mind as far as what you can do micromanaging wise. As much as i love the Supreme Ruler series this is in my opinion a superior game for the sole reason that i find this game more of a joy to play.

If you are looking for a strictly historical game you may be a little off put as the game is guided towards world war 1 events however it is only a suggestion, I have yet to play a game that was the same, There were times that world war one happened without a hitch and i was fighting off Germans in Belgium, Other times I became the cause of a World War due to my military expansion of Romania. There were times that other conflicts would prevent world war one but start other conflicts around the globe such as Colonial territories rebelling against their owners. The randomness of this game can be a blast.

The game also comes with an Editor that anyone can use, This means that if you want to build a world war two scenario you can, Do you want to recreate the Roman Empire you can, Whatever your imagination can come up with. These scenarios can also be uploaded on the Making History website for all to download.

The Developers are extremely active and listen to the community, I have never experienced the amount of help that is given by the developers to the players than in this game. They have made it clear that this game will continue to be a major focus with continued updates and added features for the foreseeable future.

If you are looking for a game in which you will keep telling yourself one more turn and you realize that was the 30th time you said that then here is the game. Would highly recommend.
