Since this update contains so very specific changes, I'd like to take a bit of time to expand on some of them. These are in no specific order and I may update this post based on feedback/testing;
  • All Annex, Colonize and Liberate actions are now supported in Multiplayer
  • When at war with a region, can preset conquest intentions (Liberate, Colonize or Annex)
  • Button added to liberate non-loyal territory in selected battlezone
This has been a long time community request and was a significant challenge, but we are happy to say that the single player options for Liberate/Colonize/Annex are now available for multiplayer games as well. There is one minor change which really was the catalyst for making this possible. After you declare war, on the Declare War panel, you will find 3 buttons to set what you want to do with territory of that region when they die. Since we don't want to pause a multiplayer game each time a region dies, we had to rethink the mechanic. The single player experience by default is the same, but there is a lobby option for using this same mechanic in single player if you prefer the "conquest intentions".
  • Button added to liberate non-loyal territory in selected battlezone
Another request we had at times, you can now "release" terrain in a battlezone that is not loyal to you. One side effect of this is if it is your colony and the battlezone includes bases, the bases will be give to that colony. *As of the first insider build, this will have a performance issue, we will be optimizing this feature.

  • Waypoints supported for units and formations, move modifier Hotkey <Shift>, maximum 6 points
This has been on my personal wishlist of more than a decade. The ticket that George closed on this was started 13 years ago! We did look at how some other games handle waypoints and fell that we've got a good overall system. One oddity, because we allow abandoning a move order (using <esc>), you must click your final destination after <Shift>+clicking your waypoints. The units will start moving to the first waypoint as soon as the orders start but won't continue until the end point is clicked or a sixth waypoint (the max) is reached.
  • Theater Transfer system for pathing implemented (St. Petersburg Issue)
This could have some very significant changes to the way units path around the world. There are now definitions for the AI about which theaters connect directly with which other theaters. This ideally will stop France from sending its boats into St. Petersburg in the 1949 maps. But it may also affect how countries reinforce over long distances or how countries trade units. We'll be watching for feedback on this.
  • Right Click Menu - Facilities Option added
I actually think this feature was added in the last update and we forgot to include it in the list. Just another way of controlling facilities on map.
  • All early WWI era techs added as already researched for all later eras, all regions
This is a housekeeping issue that we simply had not gotten to. After the research of SRGW, there were new techs in the tech tree, many of them not tied to later technologies so not preresearch in other maps. Now that it's fixed, your US 2017 start won't need to research the 1913 tech of "modern clothing".
  • Modern map region data (.cvp) values updated
An effort has been made to get current values for things like GDP/c and populations
  • Mapeditor improvements
  • Scenario creator tool improvements
These will need a whole separate post...

That's the big stuff for now.

Post by evildari »

played a quick coldwar campaign (1949) as a very passive USA
(north korea captured south korea, china managed to launch a succesfull sneaky invasion on japan taking its capital and win the country, USSR went on a conquering spree to the south):

"2560x1080 added to resolutions list choices" : would be nice if 3440x1440 could be added too - not critical since the "-fullscreen" option still helps!
"Theater Transfer system for pathing implemented (St. Petersburg Issue)" : i would say issue solved - not a single ship went there.

too tired to check this one "Improved rounding in some numeric calculations" - i hope it is what i think it may be...
"Adjust World Market/UN Border display on map" : what does this mean ? does the World market get more than that weird 0,0 location ?

Thank you very much for this Upgrade!

It gets rid of the grey border around countries. I like it with the grey border removed.

[*] Button added to liberate non-loyal territory in selected battlezone
Many wars in real life happen over small areas (Abhkazia, Ossetia, Crimea, Vilnius, Klaipėda, Carpathia, Falkand Islands, etc.

In Supreme Ruler wars usually happen ALL OUT.

Would it be possible for the developers to tweak the game a bit to perhaps make some of the wars in the game REGIONAL? As in, an algorithm would select one region for a country to take and then after it is taken, they would stop expanding and try to sue for peace.

What do you think @Battlegoat, is it possible and/or desirable to add to the game in any form?

By the way, the game is still 9.1.140 for me, even though Steam update says the .245 is public? (I have not selected beta or insider).

Lastly, I think there might be some confusion with the many types of updates (beta insider default) and this can make some players miss other players in multiplayer (unarranged online players meeting up). Perhaps it would be better to lower the number of these groups?

v.245 is currently on insider build.

The kind of change your suggesting to the engine seems rather complex. You should start a new thread if you'd like us to consider that, it will get forgotten in this thread.

Where is this option located? Added maxmisstarg .scenario option to adjust max missile targeting range. In v.245 I do not see this option, currently not yet added?

I think you have to change something in the scenario file but it didn't need recompiling and had to be done on a new save.

A new version has been posted, I've changed the OP. Users who have already read the post should re-read it, there have been a bunch more changes and I mixed in the content so that similar topics are near each other. We are hoping that version .249 will be the last version on insider before we go public for this update.
