Removal of the Grand Strategy Mode

We are planning to remove the grand strategy mode, to allow us to focus on the game's core RTS gameplay.

However, before going forward with this change, we would like to ask the community if there are any strong objections to doing so.

The new scenario mode is supposed to give the taste of a grander scope that the grand strategy mode does, specially as we manage to increase map sizes (currently 256x256, planned to increase to 512x512 and larger as performance optimizations allow).

Tell us what you think in the comments :)

Patch 2.5.3

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
- 2.5.3 Changelog
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

* AI
- Improved the Easy difficulty AI.

* Buildings
- Added proper names for Barrackses.
- Added proper names for Farms.

* Factions
- The Gnomish Sagan Tribe no longer uses light-green-colored gnomes.
- Added the Dreadskull and Wildfang tribes for the goblins.

* Heroes
- Added option to display a star symbol over a hero, to make the unit more easily distinguishable.

* Maps
- Improved symmetric map generation so that mercenary camps can no longer be generated extremely close together in a group of four at the center of the map.
- Improved resource generation for randomly-generated maps.
- Updated tree generation so that trees are less spread out in small chunks in randomly generated maps.

* Miscellaneous
- Renamed the "Campaign" screen to "Scenarios", to prevent confusion due to each "campaign" in the mode not containing a series of missions, but rather a single scenario on a huge map.

* Quests
- Added "The House of Seven Fathers" in-game quest for the Germanics.

* Scenarios
- The scenario screen now displays the highest completed difficulty for each scenario/campaign.
- Fixed issue which caused the Karling Buras to not be able to build if captured after the player developed the Teuton civilization.
- Fixed issue which caused the "Defeat your rivals" objective to be removed from a loaded game in the scenario/campaign mode.

* Triggers
- Updated the "Bountiful Harvest" scenario/campaign mode event so that the quantity of copper obtained scales with the quantity of farms owned.
- Added the "Expert Miner" random event for the scenario/campaign mode, which gives the (dwarven) player an expert miner for a price.
- Added the "Splendid Table" random event for the scenario/campaign mode.
- Added the "Beautiful Statuette" random event for the scenario/campaign mode.
- Added the "Brawl at the Barracks" random event for the scenario/campaign mode.
- Added the "Giant Mushroom Grown" random event for the scenario/campaign mode, for the dwarves.
- Added the "Skilled Carpenters" and "Skilled Masons" random events for the scenario/campaign mode.

* Units
- Fixed issue which caused a worker to stop its current actions if it previously had been ordered to build a structure, began building it, and then went on to do something else and another worker completed the construction.
- Units with only one experience unit type upgrade (i.e. Dwarven Miners) will now automatically choose that upgrade upon leveling up.

In the Wyrmsun universe a myriad of inhabited planets exist. Humans dwell on Earth, while dwarves inhabit Nidavellir and elves nourish the world of Alfheim. These peoples struggle to carve a place for themselves with their tools of stone, bronze and iron. And perhaps one day they will meet one another, beyond the stars...

  • Retro-style graphics
  • 3 playable civilizations
  • Story-based scenarios, playable on a huge map
  • Dozens of units, buildings and technologies
  • Personal names and traits for units, being generated from several historical and fictional languages
  • Units can earn experience, being able to upgrade to new unit types or acquire new abilities upon level-up
  • Persistent heroes, who carry over their level, abilities and items throughout scenarios
  • Possibility to create your own custom persistent heroes
  • Normal, magic-enchanted and unique items drop from enemies
  • Very moddable game, with a built-in mod editor and Steam Workshop integration
  • In-game encyclopedia, allowing players to learn more about the units, buildings and other elements of the game, as well as their historical and mythological sources of inspiration
