Update Content

New Features
  • Vacation Mode - A new feature of Stronghold Kingdoms™ designed for players going on a vacation or holiday when they will be without access to their Kingdoms account. By entering this mode, players are protected from player and AI attacks during the ''Vacation Mode'' time period. However, players cannot access their account until the ''Vacation Mode'' time period has elapsed. More information available on the Stronghold Kingdoms Wiki.
  • Advent calendar - The new Kingdoms advent calendar gives players two chances per day to win a prize during the Christmas and New Year period, ending 2nd January 2013. Simply click on one of the nine boxes when logging into the game client for your chance to win a prize. If you find nothing behind the door on your first attempt you will have one more try that day, until the calendar resets for the next day of the competition.
  • Seasonal FX - A falling snow animation, areas of snow on the map and snow-capped trees have been added for the Christmas period, ending 2nd January 2013. These seasonal effects can be switched off/on in the Settings menu under Audio/Visual. To do this simply uncheck the Show Seasonal FX tick box. Please note that these changes require a client restart to fully take effect.
  • Help Links - Various game screens now have a "?" icon. These have been implemented to provide new players with a link to the Stronghold Kingdoms Wiki. for help in that area of the game and extra guidance.

You set the vacation time period, you cant use your troops or others use theirs to attack you. I am not sure if your FP, honour and resources keep increasing during the vacation period?

The vacation mode would have been great in July this year as we were on holiday in Scotland and only managed to get on line a couple of times while we were there just to have the protection from AI attacks, if player attacks happen then its all part of a war game. On the overhand I can also see it getting abused in ways of people hiding behind it during war time, they can lay their castle down and the repairs carry on for however long they have used the holiday mode for, put auto recruit on and they come back to a full army.

Wow, those winter FX are not pleasant to the eyes... so glad we can turn them off.


Bout time vacation mode became a priority...., now I won't have to spend a massive amount of faith to interdict all 15 of my villages when I go out of town for a week.



Also, where exactly can you find this "advent calendar" I don't seee it.

The advent calendar appears on the log in screen. It wasn't working for the first few minutes after the update went live, so if you joined immediately you may have to log out and back it to see it.

Glad to see this feature finally implemented a great Idea. As a governor on world 4, What would happen to my votes if I was to go on lets say a 5 day vacation? Would I be voted out or do the votes remain whilst you are away?

what I would like to know is what happens to production of resources and building times while on vacation modes. And to parishes the vacationer holds..

Wiki isn't mentioning it.
Production carries on as normal.
