  1. He used an old promotional video from WFG instead of trying the game
  2. Common Mistakes: name/label confusion in mod.json - for instance https://0ad.mod.io/ja-lang "name" should be a lowercase identifier, it usually matches the URL of your mod on mod.io: for instance "ja-lang" "label" is a human-readable name, it usually matches the title of the mod on mod.io: for instance "Japanese Language Pack" top-level extra directory. Your zip should contain directly mod.json and the rest of the files, it should not contain a sub-directory with the files. The best way to avoid the issue is to use the archive builder. In order to test whether you made the mistake, try opening the mod with 0 A.D. If you land on the mod selection page and your mod was added to the list (appearing in green), things are good.
  3. Welcome! @Doktoreus is still active and looking into some parts of the documentation, but we will never have enough contributors in this area, so feel free to start proposing content and an application. I second elexis in pointing out that we'd like to know which part of the documentation you are interested in (the technical one, or one aimed at players).
  4. Follow the steps in this guide: https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/BuildInstructions to get the development version of the game. No need to build anything. Then, locate the translation files (everything starting with your language code) under binaries/data/mods/public/l10n/. There are a few strings translated using files in binaries/data/mods/mod/l10n/ and binaries/data/l10n/. Put them in your "user" mod (locate it using https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/GameDataPaths), in a folder /path/to/your/mods/user/l10n. Yeah, we could easily package a mod with the incomplete translations on each release.
  5. Ah I see what you mean. But the engine does not weigh 2GB, so it can be updated just by downloading the new version. The public mod, on the other hand, is identical on all platforms, and could be updated incrementally in theory. Splitting the public mod into smaller pieces (the art aside, typically) would help, because we could release small balance patches not touching the art, hence just modifying a small zip file, and launchers like Steam would be able to make users only download the changed file.
  6. What do you mean Stan? Are you thinking about package managers? To answer the top post, it would be doable but difficult. We could include a torrent client in the engine so that the game contents, especially the large assets, are updated efficiently. But self-upgrading the engine would be even more involved. Not even speaking about the security issues we would have to prevent. I think the simpler way to do it would be to use a separate launcher for the game. That already exists (see Lutris for instance, on Linux) and, when the game is released, you will be able to use Steam or your preferred game launcher, since we will try to launch on as many platforms as possible. There is very little point in creating our own dedicated launcher.
  7. In theory, you will need to wait for a release. If you want, you can get the translations from the development version and use them, but they won't work if some strings in the original English were deleted or modified between the last release and the current date.
  8. Hello! It all depends on the historical period you want to focus on. In particular, since you seem to focus on Turks, there is no civilization in the time period of 0 A.D. that can be directly linked to modern Turkish culture. You may want to take a look at the Millenium A.D. mod which could include the Seljuk Empire, the Sultanate of Rum, or even the emerging Ottoman Empire, in its part II. Similarly, for Chinese powers, the Han dynasty is present in Terra Magna, but other dynasties could be added in other mods with other time frames (Tang/Song in 1000 A.D., etc).

    Hot key error!

    Would it be fine if Dennis would report only on Jenkins (the detected issues wouldn't appear on Phabricator, only on Jenkins)? Else I can maybe roll up my sleeves and write a patch for the most annoying issue in the plugin.
  10. fc-28 is for Fedora. Yeah we need the crash message. The best way to do this is to run pyrogenesis -editor in a terminal to launch Atlas directly and get the errors in the standard output.
  11. Hello, if you folks create a mod, put it on mod.io and PM to sign it, it shouldn't be an issue! As said above, checking maps is really easy and quick to do, even if there are a lot of them. As a potential user, may I suggest that the mod comes with a pinch of GUI code, adding a map filter for the new maps? (So that the game setup drop-down shows "Default", "Community Maps Pack", "Naval Maps", "Demo Maps" etc). I like the idea
  12. Hello! I am sorry about the situation here. As far as I understand, the report was followed by action, but the report itself was not properly acknowledged. I just sent a PM to user1, telling him to answer here to clarify the misunderstanding. pesem's messages are definitely unacceptable and unwelcome on the lobby, and they are indeed covered by the Terms of Use. So let's not spiral down, and as far as possible let's not involve politics here. Let's just solve the misunderstanding that happened between Sundiata's report and user1's answers to it.
  13. Hello! What platform are you on, are you using the stable or the development of the game, and what do you mean by "never works" (does it crash with a message, or nothing happens)? Thanks in advance
  14. Fixed by Angen in r22125! Thanks for the report Andrettin
  15. Hi @Basshunter, and welcome! The idea sounds very cool. We'd be happy to have you create the assets for that! Putting them into place in the game shouldn't be the main difficulty. So I'm moving this thread to the Art forums, if you don't mind, where you'll be able to work on this with the help of our artists. I also encourage you to get the latest development version (see instructions here, no need to build the game, just download the SVN contents) so that you can dig into our game assets, tweak them, and test your creations as you go.
