Manufactory
We're welcoming a brand new building in DomiNations: the Manufactory! Utilizing strategic assembly the Manufactory will enhance both your Troops and Defensive Buildings as you prepare to embark on a new era of strategic prowess. You can read more about this new feature in our Manufactory Blog Post!

For those who participated in the Manufactory Early Test Build and helped contribute feedback and data to this new building, we thank you! That data helped us to rebalance many of the Munitions from their ETB version. The team also made UI updates to help the readability of the screens you’ll be interacting with based on some of that feedback. There was a ton of positive information gained from this test that players like yourself helped contribute to this version of Manufactory.

Today we’re finally ready to dive into what you’ll need and can expect to see when Outfitting your Troops and Buildings.

CharlotteRay_Councilor.jpg

New Councilor - Charlotte Ray (Diplomat)
The next Councilor to join DomiNations is Charlotte Ray. Under the initials C. E. Ray, Charlotte became the first woman to graduate from Howard University with a Law degree and cemented her place in history as the first African-American woman to become a lawyer in the United States.
She will be available starting 12/18/23!

The War version of Charlotte Ray will be defensive-focused. While the Primary version reduces enemy defenses!

Museum Loadouts - Progress Update
And finally, an update on the highly-requested Museum Loadouts feature. The team has entered its final stages of testing to bring you this quality of life adjustment in the new year. As you’ve read above, the 12.1 update is quite substantial in size so we apologize for the additional delay in getting this part in your hands, but we will keep you updated here on the forums as soon as more information is available.

Extensive Security Investigation
At multiple points this year we implemented additional security measures to combat cheating in DomiNations. These measures resulted in periodic ban waves, and while doing so, laid out additional groundwork to further determine the avenues in which players were manipulating the game and finding sources of vulnerability. That work has resulted in the permanent banning of over 4,000 malicious accounts with the release of 12.1. We’ll continue to monitor known vulnerabilities and utilize similar methods in the future to prevent and combat further manipulation of the game.

Additional Updates
  • Fixed an issue where defenders spawning from Rocket Arsenal wouldn’t appear, leaving only shadows.


DomiNations update 12.1 has begun rolling out now! Leaders will be able to install the update as soon as it populates for your region on both Android and iOS devices!

EDIT: Burj Al Arab fix wasn't a part of this update.

Does the Emergency Alert System do anything if my spawn speed is already at the limit? My bunkers are 2s first wave, 10s following waves. Would that go down to 0 and 8?
 
As always we cannot divulge too much into specifics. As stated, there were vulnerabilities that we found and have dealt with accordingly. We'll continue to monitor and utilize similar methods to combat any further breaches.
We want to know because we do not want to be wrongly banned.
 
the reinforced plating what does "ground troop" damage reduction mean. does that mean barrack and factory and not air or all troops in barracks and factory except the helicopters.

also do you plan to release more munitions in the future? (a set number you plan on releasing would be nice like you will plan to add 10 more and thats that kind of thing).
 
New defense counser has a wall HP boost. Really? Don’t they know mortars and artillery shoots over walls? Why are you not giving defense some invading mortar and artillery help.
Buildings that spawn troops can add munitions that give their troops protect when they spawn. This is huge help. Also, the buildings themselves can equip munitions that add many hitpoints. Defense is getting lotsa help.
 
Hello, please confirm

- Munitions assigned to Infantry benefit troops from garrison + ambush traps
- Riflemen munitions benefit to houses spawned riflemen
- Main battle tank munitions to Stable spawned tanks + forest def.
- Assault Vehicle munitions to trap spawned AV
- MG munitions -> MG tower spawned MG
- Heavy tank munitions -> Bunker spawned HT + Factory spawned HT
- Zook munitions -> Rocket Arsenal spawned zook

Also it would be terrific to know if some TT benefit from munitions...
Defenders have a lot of crafting so we need to plan seriously.
 
I know, the question was for the gamemakers to ask them to make a new wonder for automation age since thats what normally already should be done, since every 2 ages there is a wonder ;)
So, because they've always done something before they can't do something different? Think of the manufactory as a wonder with many bonuses.
 
the reinforced plating what does "ground troop" damage reduction mean. does that mean barrack and factory and not air or all troops in barracks and factory except the helicopters.
The actual wording is "-X% damage taken from ground troops". Explains it quite well.

Hello Harlems369th,
I was curious if the Munitions bonuses of +Damage and +Attack Speed from the Braced Plating and Composite Lining would have any affect on the healing done by Supply Convoys.

Do they have any effect on healing or does these bonuses just go to waste?

Thank you.
 
but what does "ground troops mean that vague to me
Umm ... any troop on the ground? Until BHG confirms anything l would assume the basics - barracks (except helis), factory, Merc camp, generals (cept flying ones).
Although all the troops for WW might make this a bit more complicated - better assume everything except airstrip.
Ultimately it shouldn't matter - any building or troop assigned this will take less damage.

Pff..silly that you only have 4 slots when you reach Auto age..for all the other 15(?) ages, why do we only have 2 slots? Why this discrimination?

yes any troop munitions tou give to offense also affect the corresponding defending troop.

and no. troop tactics are exempt from the munitions.
