Forums for decision-making on issues where a consensus can't be reached or isn't sufficient. The committees are chosen from among the official team members, but to ensure an open and transparent decision process it's publically viewable.
Step 23: Add towers near the oppidum walls. Less than seen here though!
Step 24: Adding a lot of flora near the water.
Step 25: Reintroduce substreams that are not horizontal to the water:
Step 26: Add a second type of farmland and add a path around it.
Step 27: Add a lot of actors on the paths and on the main grasslands.
Step 29: Add the bigger buildings in around the CC. Needs improvements though.
Step 30: Add men and women to the city.
Step 31: Use other texture for the main terrain and the waterground.
That one had been chosen because there were some nice flowers on it, but I agree that it looks odd when zooming out.
In particular I need a good name for the map!
Now the dust of alpha 23 has settled I'm holding a 1v1 cup! Matches will be played with standard settings (low resources, small map, no relics, random biome, etc) on Mainland, Rivers, Lake, Oasis, African Plains and Unknown Land. So if you don't know some of those maps, get practicing!
Each round is played over a week period. So if you signup, you'll play one match per week (unless you're eliminated). It's your responsibility to arrange your match and the winner needs to post replays. To signup, just post your ingame name and what timezone you're in. Once there are 8-16 signups, I will randomly place everyone in a tree and the knockout stage begins!
Matches are played as best of 3 except the semi final which is best of 5 and the final which is best of 7. Each round is played on different maps:
First round: Mainland, Lake, Oasis
Quarter final: Mainland, Rivers, Unknown Land
Semi final: Mainland, African Plains, Oasis, Unknown Land, Lake
Final: Mainland, Rivers, Lake, Oasis, African Plains, Unknown Land, Mainland
