New Home for Making History

Posted on Mar 28, 2016 at 02:00 PM by Chris

Hi Everyone,

The last months have been a big transition for Muzzy Lane. Most of our focus has been on creating and introducing our educational toolset, Muzzy Lane Author. Due to the small size of our company, we have been finding it more and more difficult to properly maintain the Making History series much beyond maintenance and critical bug fixes. This bothers us a lot, since Making History and the community around it have been our core focus and something we care about a lot.

We've been looking for an effective way to continue the Making History series, and now we've found one. Our Art Director Ralph Gerth, who is also the designer of Making History, is leaving to form his own company and has bought publishing rights to Making History. Muzzy Lane will continue to work closely with him in a support capacity. We truly believe this is the best option for everyone involved, including all of you.

I'm sure Ralph will give you more details as all the pieces of the transition settle into place. For myself, I just want to say it's been very rewarding to grow and interact with a community like ours. Thanks for being such a dedicated and passionate group. I'm sure I will still be posting on the forums here from time to time.

Best regards,

We deployed an update to The Great War today. Primary changes were memory/performance improvements and some small bug fixes based on feedback from players.

Making History: The Great War Editor News

Posted on Oct 08, 2015 at 09:00 AM by dave

We have recently made a number of updates to the Editor to support more varied mods. Modders now have full access to the scripted event system - we'd love for you to try this out and let us know if it works for you. Editing events can get pretty complicated and any feedback on making it easier would be much appreciated. We have also added 2 new features - the ability to set which nations are playable in your mod and the ability to set nation specific victory conditions. Used together these can allow different kinds of mods, such as ones focused on a single nation achieving a goal in a limited time frame, or a 2 player mod targeted at multiplayer between specific nations. We have posted an example mod both here and on Steam Workshop called "For the Glory of Byzantium!". You play as Greece and have 20 turns to take and hold Constantinople. Give it a try and tell us what you think!

Making History: The Great War Oct 2 update

Posted on Oct 02, 2015 at 03:00 PM by mgingerich

This update fixes a save error encountered in a web multiplayer game.

We've aso added a new option to the in-game menu. It shows fewer models per city, which reduces memory usage and may increase FPS on some systems.
