      J'ai joué un peu avec la mise à jour n°1 avec la nouvelle faction :
      1. Les combats sont toujours plutôt nazes, mais au moins les vaisseaux abîmés ne sont plus à jeter (grâce à la régénération passive et au coût moindre pour les remettre à flot).
      2. L'expansion reste peu amusante, on marche très vite sur les pieds des autres empires à moins de paramétrer la partie pour qu'il en soit autrement. De manière générale, on va toujours paramétrer la partie en fonction de la faction qu'on veut jouer (plutôt rapide et petit pour les Cravers, plutôt vaste et lent pour les United Empire...), sauf les Sophons, qui continuent d'être complètement surpuissants à tous les niveaux. Ils ne sont pas imbattables, mais ils sont toujours bons, alors que les autres factions ont besoin de conditions particulières pour se développeur.
      3. Le gameplay reste très linéaire, on finit par savoir assez rapidement si la partie vaut le coup d'être poursuivie (20-25 tours suffisent en général). Après ça, soit on se fait démonter, soit on roule sur ses ennemis, soit on se retient de faire la guerre parce que l'on veut voir le contenu du jeu.

      Et sinon, c'est toujours magnifique, avec beaucoup de diversité de techs, de quêtes et d'événements. La galaxie commence à être peuplée par de nombreuses civilisations. Il y a plein d'éléments de gameplay très intéressants (que ce soit la politique, les forces au sol ou le commerce...). Dommage que les parties se résument souvent à des rushs sans intérêt. Une solution assez simple serait de retirer purement et simplement le statut par défaut de "guerre froide" entre les empires, afin que la diplomatie puisse se mettre en place. Il serait également sympathique de réduire la vitesse de colonisation (pour le moment, on spamme les colonies aussi rapidement que possible et ça peut aller très vite) pour les factions qui peuvent le faire librement.
      De manière générale, ça va trop vite, il faut jouer à des vitesses lentes pour apprécier le jeu, ce qui le rend en même temps moins dynamique. Le bon équilibre reste à trouver, et le manque d'un véritable système de combat se fait sentir (cela devrait arriver dans une prochaine mise à jour).

        Merci pour tes Retex
        Amplitude a prouvé avec Endless legend qu'ils pouvaient tenir compte du retour utilisateur et se remettre en question. Donc ça laisse présager du bon tout ça.

          Si jamais ils arrivaient à mettre en place un mode multijoueur, je suis dispo jusqu'à vendredi. (bon par contre, j'ai que 10 heures sur le jeu)

                    Le carnet sur le mode multijoueur de la mise à jour 3, prévue pour cette semaine, est disponible en traduction.
                    Le carnet sur l'immersion et la refonte des interactions avec les factions mineures est là aussi.
                    Je me rends compte que j'ai oublié de publier le carnet sur le système de combat dans la précédente mise à jour... Je retrouve ça et je m'en occupe.

                    L'intro de la nouvelle faction :

                    Comme d'habitude, ça dépote.

                      Et voici le troisième carnet sur le système de combat. Il est assez consistant.
                      La mise à jour 3 sera disponible à 18h.


                      • #42

                        Ma première victoire "leggit", avec les Lumeris(les extraterrestres batraciens maffieux). La mise à jour 3 a rendu le jeu plus agréable, même si j'ai plusieurs fois eu l'impression que l'IA était passive voire carrément à la ramasse. Je ne saurais dire si c'est parce que je l'ai doublé tôt dans la partie (les Lumeris ont la possibilité de spammer les colonies s'ils ont suffisamment de Brume, et je ne m'en suis pas privé) ou bien si c'était dû à un bug.
                        • On comprend enfin ce qu'il se passe lors des batailles. L'arbre technologique a été clarifié par rapport à la mise à jour 2. Et comme le jeu est vraiment beau, ça donne envie de continuer.
                        • Je n'ai pas encore réussi à aller jusqu'au bout d'une quête principale de faction - soit j'ai eu des bugs, soit j'ai gagné la partie avant, et je ne me vois pas trop poursuivre une partie remportée juste pour ça.
                        • Le système politique a vraiment été poussé, il est amusant de suivre les changements d'opinion dans votre empire pendant la partie. Au début de la partie, les décisions du joueur (technologies recherchées, événements, attitude face aux factions mineures, bâtiments construits, etc) jouent un rôle crucial. Dans cette partie, il y a longtemps eu une opposition entre Pacifistes (majoritaires à environ 40%) et Militaristes -souvent entre 20 et 30%). Vers la fin, à cause d'une guerre contre l'Empire Uni (les humains), j'ai eu droit à 3 révolutions, la première mettant en place une fédération pacifiste, la seconde une dictature militariste, et la troisième faisant un retour vers la démocratie pacifiste, grâce au soutien des industriels.
                        • Un peu déçu par les compagnies commerciales. Je n'avais jamais pu les tester en profondeur auparavant. Cette fois-ci j'ai été en mesure de les soutenir financièrement, mais leurs mécanismes manquent d'incidence. Il y a des routes commerciales, qui peuvent notamment être rompues par des blocus, mais en définitive ça reste une question de bâtiments à construire, avec des boutons pour investir dans chaque compagnie.

                          Les quêtes des factions ne sont pas terminé.

                            Pour ceux que ça intéresse, Endless Space premier du nom + Disharmony est à 1€ sur Steam ce week-end (mais j'ai pas vu d'offre sur ES2). Ça va me permettre de découvrir la série, le 2 a l'air bien tentant également

                              Comme d'habitude j'attends qu'il sorte en Français
