Well this is interesting news! Seravy has done a deal with Slitherine (the new MoM license holder working on a new MoM game) and Caster of Magic is now a buyable ‘officially approved’ Master of Magic addon on Steam & GoG! Naturally Seravy has promised to continue doing more amazing improvements to the mod now that he’s receiving financial reward for his hard work. Caster of Magic is already amazing enough as it changes & improves MoM so much but my god if he ever finds a way to exceed the 4 enemy player limit I’ll have his baby lol!

Announcement thread:

The only downside is all previous copies of CoM have been wiped! Don’t think I’ve grabbed a copy since 5.6, which must have been a while back as he’s now up to 6.0 lol!

EDIT: Sure enough here they are! They’ve gone live!

EDIT 2:
I just realised.. Master of Magic wasn’t even on steam until now.. they’re doing a joint release of both MoM & CoM on steam! Wow!

Oh and more good news. Slitherine have setup an official Master of Magic forum! And they've kindly moved my ever growing MoM2 wishlist thread into there too.

Also, now you can choose to play original, Community patch or CoM (if you bought one).

WOAH!!! The good news keeps coming for MoM fans. After years Implode has returned from his self imposed exile (think kungfu movie where the bad guy bests the good guy so the good guy climbs up a mountain and learns better kungfu with some old guy with a grey beard who never speaks and then the good guy comes back and kicks the bad guys ass lol) and released a new version of his HD Multiplayer remake of Master of Magic with for the first time FUNCTIONING AI!! This is the moment many like me have been waiting/hoping for.. hopefully people try it and give him some feedback!

Hmm, sounds interesting certainly. Thanks for posting it here. Think I'll wait still a bit though, until an improved version will become available, as some things I've read in the announcement show it's in the process of twiddling yet and not an all-around satisfying (at least for me) release.


Particularly that the AI doesn't know how to load units into boats yet, that's an exploitable weakness, imagine you start off on an island, enemy will be severely limited in reaching you. Lords of Magic, which I liked back in the day, had the same kind of lame AI problems.


That the AI gets the same amount of big cheating advantage as in original is also not something I (entirely) like as it is, I'd have preferred still a bit smarter AI with some less amount of cheating advantage. Smarter AI is a lot more fun to compete against, than cheating AI where one could feel compelled to get some cheating advantages as well, and / or exploiting game glitches or AI weaknesses.


But that looks pretty interesting, I'll be sure to keep my eye on progress of that work.
