Faction Building Effect Fix
by: Frizz on Sunday the 30th of June 2013

Faction buildings should now only provide positive effects to players actually in that faction (per ticket #100).

Thanks Vanoi!

Stealth changes ... Go!
by: Frizz on Saturday the 29th of June 2013

I've had a long time to think about stealth and I feel I finally hit on the problem: the intention of stealth was to create units that behaved like "submarines" they would operate below the surface where they could not attack or be attacked, move into position for a strike, then fade away.

The issue is: in a turn-based game, an previously unanticipated attack can be devastating.

The following changes are have been added:
- A unit in the same sector (10x10 squares) as a stealthed unit will now be able to "see" that unit. The cloaked unit will appear stealthed and neither unit can attack the other but this should finally give people who dislike stealth a way to operate that prevents a completely unseen, attack that wipes them out.

- Stealth units will no-longer be uncloaked if they end their turn in the same square as an enemy unit.

This tweak provides a lot of options for players to remove the "surprise! you lose everything!" aspect of stealth while leaving the tactical aspect in-place (we may even need to remove, lessen revealers after this change ... but let's take it a step at a time).

- map_viewer.php has been added to git. This file controls all the view-logic for generating the playable map while deployed.

Acheron & Mortum Consolidated
by: Frizz on Sunday the 28th of April 2013

Acheron & Mortum have been consolidated into a single planet: Mortum. This planet has day and night PvP times. By decreasing Faction Wars to a single planet, it may be time to add a Beacon or two ... ask your Player Council about that. =)

Also, I've been brainstorming about ways to decrease the "bite" of losing valuable units in combat. Check out this post, The Long Lost Mek Graveyard?, for more information.

You can also toggle allowing deployment to areas which are occupied by other players / bandits.
