How life-like! Just like Italians in WWI, mostly standing around and waiting for stuff to happen!

;-)

In all seriousness, I don't think I'll be able to handle any more screenshots without me sending my Debit Card information over a PM to the devs. This game is a MUST-HAVE for me.

Yes same I really do need this game

My single largest complaint in MH 2 is that I have to upgrade each individual unit one at a time instead of having a button I could push which would allow me to "update all" and then allocate all my available arms to update units.

That one thing would save me time and make the game more enjoyable.

We will not have unit upgrading in the Early Access release. Still working out what we're going to do with that.

I really like how the cities and resource centers are much smaller now. The map looks a lot less cluttered now, and much easier to look at. :)

How much history events are you putting in the game?

Asking that because later versions of MHII completely lost historical events like spanish civil war, chinese civil war, ...

Historical events are coming back in TGW. We still won't force events down a scripted path but where the course of your game makes sense you will see more historical events.

How does the Sphere of Influence system work out? I noticed a map mode for it.

dave   Site Admin MHII, MH GOLD

TGW has a new Diplomatic Influence system that allows the Great Powers to build influence in other nations (through financial aid, national programs, building projects, trade, etc.) that can eventually lead to putting that nation into subordinate status to the Great Power. We are also at some point in the future looking to a system to allow nations to declare Spheres of Influence as a warning to others not to intrude.

The new diplomacy looks interesting.

It will give you new ways to use your economic strength to achieve your goals which we think will be really fun.

I'll give you a twist...

Why not backport to MHII applicable changes and grant the update only to MHII and TGW owners?

dave   Site Admin MHII, MH GOLD

We have been back porting some of the improvements to MHII, but only where they are compatible with the original gameplay. Some of the new systems are significantly different so will likely show up in a future WWII title.

The economic influence is extremely interesting!! I have always felt that a method to coerce other nations short of war was lacking. How does national debt affect game play? Is it any different?

dave   Site Admin MHII, MH GOLD

Debt still primarily impacts stability and your ability to command your nation. If you trash your economy there will be severe consequences - rioting, revolt, and finally open rebellion. We have tuned the economic gameplay so it's more apparent what the impact of your choices are, and there are more ways to use your money to impact things in your own nation and others.

Regarding stability, please review the factors.

England had multiple nationalities with different religions but in MHII they have 100% stability while with Italy as soon as I acquire new countries mine becomes shaky. What would be the difference? Why that?

Will separatist rebels (not ideological rebels) keep themselvs to the areas with their own ethnicity and/or historical claims or will they still be running about deep into german territory as in MH2? :)

Separatist rebels will generally want to get out with the other regions of the same ethnicity, not necessarily turn around and try to take over the homeland of the former master.

We are updating the factors - take a look at TGW when it releases this Friday. Still much balancing to go but you can be a part of it!

How have puppets been changed in TGW? Are there options for the controlling nation to declare them wholly or partially as colonies?

dave   Site Admin MHII, MH GOLD

You can now organize your regions into Puppets, Colonies, and Protectorates as you see fit. There are also new Colonial Policy options to allow you to decide how much control to exert over your subordinates.

Thanks Dave! Another thing: how will commerce raiding be changed in TGW? It seemed like it was impossible to truly cut off a nation's supply by sea or by land in MH2.

  • Armchair General previews TGW
    July 17, 2014 

    "Although the graphic and mechanics are similar to Muzzy Lane’s World War II games, play in the new game is different. The world—even Europe—was not as developed in 1912 as it was in 1933. Gaining wealth and increasing military might is a function of building factories in cities. These factories must have well-developed rail systems, and only Britain and most of Germany are well-heeled in this respect. Powers such as Austria-Hungary and even France didn’t have enough double-tracked lines to expand their manufacturing base or easily move troops. Colonies in Asia and Africa not only have poor transportation systems but very backward agriculture. "

With alternate timelines and a thirst for historical knowledge in mind, we caught up with Muzzy Lane's Dave McCool and Chris Parsons to find out what we can learn from Making History: The Great War.

    Newburyport, MA, February 4, 2014--Developer Muzzy Lane has announced their highly anticipated WWI era game “Making History: The Great War” will release for the Mac and the PC on July 28th, 2014. The latest game in the Making History series, The Great War will immerse players in an era of transition and intrigue, backdoor diplomacy and naked aggression, unstable empires with conflicting interests and military strategies rendered obsolete by modern, industrialized warfare. Players will get to control autocratic leaders who, at that time, had almost unlimited power. They control their economies, can raise armies, and make diplomatic deals. As the game progresses, they may find that power slipping away amidst a rising tide of new ideologies and nationalism.
