    • So when will alpha 24 be released before March next year? 
    • I am trying to build the alpha version of 0AD on my CentOS 7 system since there seems to be no repository or RPM for that distro. When I try to run 'update-workspaces.sh' I get the following output: Updating bundled third-party dependencies... FCollada/FColladaPlugin.cpp FCollada/FCollada.cpp Package libxml-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libxml-2.0.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'libxml-2.0' found Package libxml-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libxml-2.0.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'libxml-2.0' found In file included from FCollada/FCollada.h:49:0, from FCollada/StdAfx.h:13, from FCollada/FCollada.cpp:9: FCollada/FUtils/FUtils.h:91:25: fatal error: libxml/tree.h: No such file or directory On CentOS 7 the package containing that is 'libxml-devel' and the 'tree.h' include file is located in /usr/include/gnome-xml/libxml. It is unclear from the build instructions how to deal with this. I cannot add a directory for 'libxml-2.0.pc' since that does not exist on CentOS. Can someone point me to a compatible rpm or explain how to deal with this dependency? TIA.
    • There are stuff in deference in heroes in each Civ as for example in Ptolemies we can have a variety of uses in all three heroes for example Ptolemy IV is good for defense as triangle 20 pikemen with him and hold a ground and something and if celophatra VII for attack and Ptolemy I Sorter for using in home defense as after attack easy to rebuild and form a new army to attack and he is a good seige. But in some Civ like Britons we mostly take Boudicca as its the only one with decent attacks and speed as if we send 5-10 more carrtios it would make a decent army but the second and third are useless as for seige in Britons no one needs it garrisoned as we use Britons only for rush and most games never train an hero waste of time and in Athenian we never mostly pick ( expect naval battles)  and only pick any one for the three as mostly the three of them as useless in land. So, it would be better to give all heroes decent boosts or attack to make it balanced.     
    • I guess the idea was to easily pick the function
    • Well reforestation might happen but in some cases we use trees as a buffer zone on battles but there when trees grows we will get irritated. 
    • No, well it will if luckily to find a website on Thracian history and stuff where we could find more about them and their special military units and stuff and mainly their building names and the reaction they give when we assign them to a work. 
    • Maybe choose a color for each cultural group (barbarians, greco-romans, eastern civilizations etc.).
