Update: Streamlined combat results

Postby 10x10room » Thu Nov 17, 2016 10:18 pm

As many of you know, we've been working for a while now to get Conclave launched on Steam. Recently we've been recording gameplay footage for its launch trailer, and taking a fresh look at the game has prompted us to make some visual and interface improvements.

Today we released the first of these, which streamlines combat by reducing the number of events you have to read and click through for certain results:

  • Terrain only generates an event if it produces a new effect. Once you're already burning from standing on a fiery square, for example, you won't see additional narration unless something changes.
  • Any conditions that wear off for a side now take place in a single event, rather than requiring you to navigate through one event for each condition. In other words, you'll only have to click once to watch any of your party's conditions wear off, and ditto for any conditions of your foes.
  • Similarly, any damage from ongoing conditions -- burning, bleeding, and poisoned -- will happen in a single event for each side.
Pre-existing events won't be affected, but you'll see the changes for any new ones.

We've got two other updates -- one to chat, and the other to combat animations -- that we plan to release in the next week or so. As always, let us know if you run into any problems.
