Default Armored Brigade v0.802 released

http://www.armoredbrigade.com

A new version of Armored Brigade is out. I recommend all wargamers to try this free game.

Yes, it's a nice one. Have occasionally recommended it myself in the past years.

I just wished he would finally, finally spend one or two hours on a text explaining the less obvious options and possibilities. Much can be found out by trial-and-error, but some things are anything but self-explanatory. These definitely should get some written treatment, finally, after this long time.

Maybe he will put some effort to it now that you mention it. Veitikka, AFAIK,
is the man behind the game.

I shall have to download the new version. Looking forward to having a play about, it's a beautiful piece of work.

I wonder if there are plans for BAOR and multiplayer?

I'll tell him to hurry up with the quick start guide

Unfortunately no plans for multiplayer, but the map designer is working on the BAOR map and units. That map alone is modest 7410 square kilometers

A quick start guide of limited reach is not so much what is needed, players can find out the basic things quite fast. But there are quite some details and features that I find tougher to make sense of, or where I wonder if and how the game simulates them or not. The less self-explanatory things and hidden details must be explained, not the obvious ones!

Shame about the multiplayer, but understandable, it is a hard thing to implement...but dear god, that is a huge map. Beautiful Look forward to seeing BAOR included.

Why not having the new maps along with the former map editor? Or did I miss it? I played AB yesterday, it was my first go at it since a longer time. I was surprised by the changes.

You mean the random map generator? The new maps are so much better in every way, and there should be plenty of them coming, so I didn't see any use for the generated maps.
