A new version of AIrship Dragoon has been uploaded, it will take a few days to filter through the system though.
So whilst you're waiting, read the development blog about the update: Yorkshirerifles.blogspot.co.uk

I'd like to see this game expanded. It's pretty fun as is, but the battles are a bit slow. Just moving each soldier takes awhile for him to walk to his destination. Either speeding up the walk speed or being able to move multiple soldiers at once (like issuing move order then switching to next and so on.)

The interface could be improved as well. It would be nice to have move as the defualt action or double click to move instead of having to click on the move button.

More variance between the soldiers would be cool as well. Sometimes im cycling through my soldiers to find a certain one and its difficult because they all look the same to begin with. More skin variance according to class or rank would be nice so you'd be able to identify them easier.

The battles could be mixed up a bit more. For example, if you were attacking a territory, the enemy could be deployed anywhere instead of just on the opposite edge of the map. Right now you can predict about how far it is before you will encounter the enemy, and they'll be on the left, right, or middle.

Last but not least, adding some more weapons and interesting gear would be cool, like different variations of armor or gear that would have different trade offs. Maybe in the future for an expansion you could add more things like steampunk tanks and have the whole anti armor aspect to the combat.

Very fun game. My only criticism is that the length of the tactical battles can make the campaign a chore. I'd like to see an autoresolve feature. Or even a setting to limit the size of campaign battles (like in the battle mode). Having to fight a series of 15-on-15 battles with pirates just to get started in the campaign is a bit much.

Wonderful game otherwise!

Hey C...you may be having the same problem that I had/am having.. I am unable to launch Airship Dragoon (AD) using the Desura Client (you can look at my posts here).

What I did was to copy the AD folder and move it to another location (C/Games worked for me). It should work perfectly after you move it. Just run teh exe from teh new location.

I hope this helps.

What, flagyl says really. Move the game folder out of Program Files and startup directly with the exe. No idea why some (currently 2) users have a failure when launching via Desura.

Hey, just got your game of Indie Game Stand.

I liked what I've played so far but there are some features that need to be in the game. A mini-map or tactical map that allows you to see your troops from an arial view would be a life saver.

The inventory needs some sorting out as it's incredibly unclear. Trying to equip something is a pain, maybe a drag and drop option would be help.

Also, a tutorial is sorely needed to explain what a lot of the info you get within the game is for and how to transport already used troops with you rather than taking newbies with you every time.

Just some suggestions, hope the game improves as it could be a really good strategy game.

Kind Regards,
