I am guessing that you will need to buy a steam illy for each account that you want to be able to play via steam which also means you will need two steam accounts and you wont be able to have them online at the same time since you cant be logged in with two steam on one PC even if you are able to connect two accounts with one steam you still wont be able to log into both at the same time via steam

Thanks Koda, appreciate the reply.   That rules out Steam for me, then, I'm always on both at the same time.

We could connect two accounts to the same Steam account and offer a choice of account on start-up; but you could only ever be on one account via Steam at a time - so it isn't necessarily great for two accounts via Steam. 

Although achievement-wise we could take the highest reached between the two accounts. Some items recorded in Steam would fluctuate with account change, like city count, population etc (e.g. stats that go up and down).

However you could use one via Steam and one via regular browser. Once you have linked an account (or created) via Steam you can also use your Steam login via the browser (Steam as the login type)

Given those constraints, how would you like it to work?

Hi all,

For a variety of reasons passing the understanding of we Earthlings, the Steam launch of Illyriad has been pushed back by a week to Wednesday the 11th of January at 1800 GMT.

Apologies for this.  Can't wait, though!

Best wishes, and hoping everyone's having a great run up to New Year.

Dear Devs
I notice that the trade scores per the global rankings are calculated on the new steam friendly scoring system but that the illyriad growth scores show growth using the "old" system.  When will they be brought into agreement?  It should be possible to run an update query against the historical data in the growth db surely? Yours pedantically,
Dung

ps apologies if this has been answered elsewhere.

TanyaFairy

When you start the Steam client, it will show this screen and you choose the "Link Existing Account" button rather than the "Play Now" button.



It will then ask you for username and password for your current account; then link them.
