'Supreme Ruler 2010' - v4.3.1 Patch Available NOW

by Rainier on Oct. 6, 2005 @ 1:25 a.m. PDT

The year is 2010 and the Major Powers of the world as we currently know them have disintegrated into bickering economic and military regions. The United Nations has disappeared, and in its place an organization with far sharper teeth referred to simply as "The World Market" has taken its place. Individual Regions are left to fight for power to dominate their neighbors, their countries, their continents, and then the world.

UPDATE 3CHANGES - Version 4.3.1

New Mission(s) Included with Updates

“Russian Bear” – Defend Moscow and then kill the command unit in St. Petersburg.

New Features

  • Missile storage limit now a startup lobby option
  • Unit Roles as subset of ROE (Rules of Engagement) implemented: --- Unit "Target Priority" options based on selected unit roles will allow units to only target certain types of targets.
    • Land, Air, Sea, Sub, Fortifaction attacks, and allow use of WMD are the 6 options. Selections are what the unit can attack by default. Fortification attack must be selected by the player or specifically orderd by the player and does not come default selected. The WMD option works when "autoloading missiles" is selected. This allows a unit to get its own missiles and even select WMD missiles.Unit roles will allow an air unit with ground and air attack values to ignore ground targets and remain at mid air to engage targets. Unit roles will allow a land unit to ignore firing on enemy naval units (useful when you are about to take over a region and you are hoping to get their navy).
  • Fixed Missile Loading/Autoloading issues related to new unit roles. Units can now be ordered to "autoload" their own missles when unit is not at full missile capacity AND based on the selected unit roles as chosen in the units ROE. When autoload is selected and there are available missiles the unit can be ordered to fire missiles and will continue to autoload its own missiles. Autoloading of missiles will start with autodeployed missiles first, then non autodeployed missiles. It will also select missiles with launch authority above missiles without launch authority.
  • Unit roles can also be adjusted in advanced orders for multiple units at once. To reset unit roles to default chose all land, air, sea, sub types.
  • Modified feature - you now "choose to accept autodeployed missiles" instead of preventing autodeployed

UPDATE 2 CHANGES - Version # 4.00.12

New Mission Included with Retail and Demo

  • “White Sands Project” – Stop the nuclear test planned by New Mexico.

Map Updates for Retail Version

  • North America: Updated a few rivers in the North America scenario.
  • British Isles: Added city (Dougrie) to an island in Scotland in the British Isles scenario to add supply to an ore mine.

Feature Improvements

  • New GUI Element - State Department - Pick a region - In Panel 2, choose button named "Current Relations".

In this new third panel you will see the following:

  • Diplomatic Rating,
  • Civilian Rating,
  • Causus Belli,
  • Treaty Integrity Ratings and
  • World Market Ratings

There are two columns each under a region's flag. The first flag is your region, the second is the region you are viewing. The first three ratings are views directed towards the other region. Read the tool tip to see exactly what each bar represents. (For example, under your flag you will see how your people feel about the other region AND under the other flag you will see how their people view your region.)

The last three bars are regional ratings and are not views of the "other" region but are indicators about the region. (For example, under your flag you will see the Treaty Integrity Rating for your reigon and under the other flag you will see the same rating for that region.)

  • Added mid-air refueling, though must be managed by player

Game Improvements/Fixes

  • Adjusted AI weighting of diplomatic offers. Now the AI is more receptive to accepting diplomatic offers. Diplomatic views of your region are still used to determine if a trade will be accepted. Now the AI will reject or occassionally send a counter-offer back to your region. Use the new State Department Panel 3 (mentioned above) to determine what regions will likely trade with you.
  • Fixed AI Land Trades Bug. The AI will no longer give away it's entire territory.
  • Fixed Bug in 'View Deployed Missiles' when picking silo.
