Beta Update #6 - Beautiful Pitches



Despite we the gameplay has a higher priority for us, we also want the game to look attractive. After all, when you see something you can believe in, you feel more connected to what happens in the game, to your footballers, and to your team. Thus, the graphics support the emotions.

Therefore, two years ago we created our very powerful Faces editor. Therefore, one year ago, we created the animations of goal celebrations (which allowed us to show the faces closer). And therefore, the last few months we have been working on creating beautiful grass.



There are still some problems to be solved. For example, the grass is not very correctly displayed on the kick off and penalties. Anyway, now, playing in beta, you can forget about the blurred green texture, which was just ugly.

And most importantly, when we add such features, we do it as a part of some bigger plan. For example, we want you to be able to watch replays, control the camera freely so that you can feel your players better.

Creating faces was the first step to this. Creating 3D grass was the second one. Thanks to your support, we will continue moving forward in making the great football experience which no other game provides.



THE MAIN FEATURE OF THE UPDATE

  • Now, you can see realistic grass when the camera moves closer to the pitch. Depending on the weather and the level of the stadium, the pitch will be either beautiful, dirty or snowy.

We are aware that some players play on weak computers. Therefore, we have provided an option to disable 3D grass. The picture will look much worse, but better than it was all the time before.

Known issues:
- In most cases, the colours of the grass will differ from the grass you see at a great distance.
- During the kick off the grass looks blurry.
- During the penalty, interface elements intersect the goalkeeper. Also, the grass is blurry.

All of these problems will be fixed in further beta updates.



ADDITIONAL IMPROVEMENTS

MODIFICATIONS
  • Fixed the crash when a player created more than 20 teams in a league.
  • Removed the possibility to create an odd number of the teams in a league.
  • Fixed the problem which made the Team Editor show the default faces of the selected country instead of the custom set of faces.

OTHER
  • Fixed the bug which sometimes affected the AI to return to the default defensive position and therefore to open the space for the opponent's Cannon Shot.
  • Added new set of sounds for testing purposes. They are not final.

New year's Beta update



If you love to edit the game so it fits your tastes, if you love to create your own leagues, you will love this update. Because it adds great improvements to our Leagues editor.

NEW FEATURES
To the huge amount of currently existing features we add the following new possibilities:
  • The possibility to change the number of leagues from 1 to 5.
  • The possibility to change the number of teams in every league.
  • The possibility to set the face types for every country.

Also, we made the following less noticeable improvements:
  • Added generators of the faces of different nationalities in the Faces editor.
  • Added the buttons for a random haircut/beard in the Faces editor.
  • Added the new Greek names.
  • Added the possibility to see the modification's tags directly in the game.
  • Fixed the problem with the modification's flag. Now, it won't skew.
  • Added three new countries: Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand.
  • Changed the UI sounds (temporarily).

CHANGING THE NUMBER OF THE LEAGUES AND TEAMS
Now, you can make any league much more similar to the real one.

For example, in English Premier League there are 20 teams but in Championship, there are 24 ones. You can easily recreate these leagues in the updated Leagues editor.

Moreover, if you want to keep only these two leagues in England, you can delete the bottom 3 leagues.



The trash icon (which allows you to delete a league) is shown only on the lowest league. It's important because the connection between leagues should be kept. You can delete all the lowest leagues up to the Premier League. Also, you can add leagues until there are five ones.

In addition to realistic leagues, you can also experiment with other formats, creating your own fantasy leagues. For example, you can create a country with three leagues each of which consists of 10 teams.

Or, for example, there's another way of using the new possibilities:
  • take the countries from America and change every country to the regions of your own country. Here's what I'd make for Germany:
  • instead of Brazil you can create Bavaria; instead of Canada you can create Branderburg, instead of Mexico - Bremen, instead of USA - Hesse etc.
  • in every region you can leave only Premier league which consists of 10-12 biggest cities from the region.
  • best teams will play in the "continental cups" which you already can rename to Germany cup.

You already have the possibility to upload the unique flag for every region, you already have the possibility to upload the list with the surnames which fit every region, you already can set the power for the teams.

In this way, you can create your own unique world which is interesting to watch for. Once you finished creating the leagues, start a new campaign with these leagues and start playing. The world will live, the clubs will develop.

It's something no other game provides.

SETTING THE FACE TYPES
Despite there are wide editing possibilities, there has always been one limitation which didn't allow you to customize the game completely to your liking.

In my previous example, this limitation would not allow me to create the German leagues. Because, in Bavaria, there would be Brasilian faces, in Bremen - Mexican faces etc.

So, there appears our second big features of the new update - the possibility to customize faces for every country individually.



There are many presets already, therefore, you will have what to choose from.

However, let the names of the presets not limit you. For example, faces from the preset 'Britain' can be used in any other country, because the world is wide and diverse.

Usually, the best way to set the faces is to use many different presets. However, every preset should have its own probability.

Try, experiment!

Can't wait to see what interesting leagues you can create with the new tools.

Reviews

“Football, Tactics and Glory shines because it provides lots of stories, triumphs and disappointments.”
Polygon

“If, like me, you crave the drama and flavour of club football, but don’t have the patience to grapple with full-blown management simulations like Football Manager, or the manual dexterity or even-temper necessary to play games like FIFA, anticipate obsession.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“A real innovation: deeply addictive”
GameStar

About This Game


As a coach, you get to take a look at your opponent, unambiguously determine his weaknesses and put your tactics on display to defeat even a stronger opponent. In the living world developing along with you, each match turns into a football puzzle.


  • The tactile sensation of managing footballers like pieces on a chess board. Meanwhile, each footballer is unique. In time, you will recognize each of them by their faces and you will have a particular attitude toward each of them.
  • This game is about strategic planning, not micromanagement. Instead of spending time enhancing some characteristic by 0.01%, you make “big” decisions that noticeably affect the destiny of your club. This eliminates the boring side of football manager games – countless tables, a whole routine, and micromanagement.
  • The game values your time. You can make it through a football season in just a couple of actual hours rather than days as is the case for other football manager games. Meanwhile, each season is filled with events and fascinating decisions.
  • You manage the footballers directly, so you always know why the match took a certain course, rather than going another way. You know how footballers use their strong points and weaknesses. Since in other games it is never obvious how your tactics and the strong points of your players affected (or did not affect) the end results.


Football, Tactics & Glory reinvents the basics of the football management genre, making it appealing to everyone, not just the most hardcore football management aficionados. In many reviews, players write that they didn’t like football until they tried our game.

If you enjoy turn-based gameplay, strategy or tycoon games, you will love Football, Tactics & Glory.


- Unique turn-based system
- Club development involving economics and RPG elements
- Powerful face editor
- Mod support which allows you to create real-life leagues
- Online game support
- Twitch integration (spectators can interact with a streamer)
