Hearthlands is a real-time strategy game in which you take a role of a king in your own medieval/fantasy realm. You can not control your subjects directly. Instead you focus on city-building, resource management, diplomacy, heroes, magic and other things a typical king deals with on a daily basis. The world of the game, maps, characters and opponents are procedurally generated.

Lots of fixing and testing, also some goblins as well as screenshots from my latest playthrough.

Posted by on

I've spent most of this week on lots testing and fixing, so there'll be another intermediate update soon (after some more testing and fixing).

- Rulers AI apparently didn't work as intended, so I fixed it and rebalanced. Also their requests now depend more on what you actually produce.

- Availability of trade routes now depends more on the opinion. Also vassals will gradually make all their trade routes available for their liege.

- Lots of visual fixes and improvements (more tooltips; more clear tooltips; beehives show their radius; pigs, large pigs and piglets look a bit more different etc.).

- "window_borders" option added to config.txt. Set it to "no" if you don't want borders in windowed mode.

- Battle and request success is a bit more predictable.

Also I legitimately won the game against 12 rivals. It was quite fun and took longer that I expected. Considering there are 3 more cultures and I was playing on Normal, I'm quite happy with the gameplay value Hearthlands has at the moment.

At the end (about 30 in-game years) my city had 4 big housing districts with a storage/production area in the center. I would have had 9600 people, but I messed up with boots supply (was too busy planning war) and about 2000 people had left. I never had an excess of people, so I could built 2-3 more districts I think.

Military district looks messy. Troops are coming back from conquering the last rival.

All hail the king!
