  1. Hey guys! Do all 0 ad mods use the same open license? Or at least do they use open licenses at all? I asking this because I found the avatar image of Kandake Amanirenas of Kush on the site below, and as far I could understand, its not a open licence image. https://www.msingiafrikamagazine.com/2019/10/afrikas-heroes-2/ Regards, Sturm
  2. @m7600 Talking about portraits producing, you are a "machine gun"! Amazing work! Congrats!

  4. Hi folks! Considering that the Wildfire team prefers to be more cautious in Spidermonkey updates, the idea is to update to V52 in Alpha 24 and then to Spidermonkey V62 in Alpha 25? Is that right? Regards, Sturm.
  5. If you scroll down (after clicking at link below), you can see the series of interwikis (supposedly equivalent articles on Wikipedia in different languages). https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q484830
  6. Hi folks! Any news about the new moddable GUI and/or on mod selection? Perhaps it would be interesting to give prominence / more context to the most recent and active mods.
  7. I kept the word in Spanish just because we were talking about Mexico and because part of the interlocutors speak Spanish. But you're right, it's just the same thing. Now, bringing my favorite corn recipes here to the South of the continent, I recommend a good Paraguayan soup.
  8. Hum, cemitas seem to be a really good choice. As for grasshoppers, even though I am an admirer of El Chapulín Colorado, my vegetarianism would prevent me from trying them. LOL. By the way, is there any civilization in 0 a.d or in any of its mods that was known for adopting a vegetarian diet? Any that could be addressed?
  9. Just to create controversy here, lol: I confess that I loved los Esquites when I was in Mexico city, but the best maíz that I ever tasted was in Canada.
  10. Tupis! Tupis! Tupis! Bigger, Better, Faster, More!
  11. Well m7600, first I register here my sincere admiration for your work in the mod of the African Empires. An amazing (fast) work! So, I confess that my suggestion would be for a standard mod of Brazilian indigenous peoples. I am not an expert of games, so I am unable to visualize the real differences between a standard RTS and a 4x game.
  12. Despite the excellent 3D modeling work of the project contributors, in such cases it may be desirable to use illustrations instead of the 3D models plain images, what do you think? Furthermore, I bring back here the idea that the game (0 a.d. and its mods) could indicate, at the end of all these "describing texts", a link to the Wikipedia articles on the topic / biography. The game, therefore, would be a way/bridge for reading and eventual research. Finally, these head meshes, ahhhh, these head meshes ... Pericles doesn't deserve this!
  13. Other very general notes (initial and soft ones) regardless of the time frame adopted for an eventual mod on indigenous populations in Brazil. - As I said in a previous post, such peoples and civilizations did not constitute monumental architecture and, therefore, a good part of the mod's buildings would be the "tabas" and "ocas", although there are records of large ocas with a more sophisticated construction structure. In addition to the ocas, there are also the "sambaquis" (middens), common on the Brazilian coasts. - On fauna, it would be an opportunity to create unique animals such as Boidae snakes (anacondas and boa constrictors), macaws, manatees, tapirs, jaguars, marmosets etc. - On weapons, in addition to the traditional long bows and spears, there were also the "bordunas" (clubs) and the blowguns, for instance. - I don't know how this could be inserted in the game, but there are reports of cannibalistic practices in some of the peoples that inhabited the region. I recommend reading "True History: An Account of Cannibal Captivity in Brazil". - Movies: A visual reference present in a film that is easy to find online is "The Mission", from 1986. Another interesting film, but this time a little more difficult to find is Desmundo, from 2002. - A reference in .pdf is the book "The Indigenous Presence in the Formation of Brazil", which can be downloaded here.
  14. Using Wikipedia to help us... A 4X FLOSS game would be a... - 4X (abbreviation of Explore, Expand, Exploit, Exterminate) are a sub-genre of strategy-based computer and board games, and include both turn-based and real-time strategy (RTS) titles, just like 0 a.d. - Free and open-source software (FOSS) or free/libre and open-source software (FLOSS) is software that can be classified as both free software and open-source software. - Game... well, its a game! An electronic one, in this case.
