  1. Can you please revert this statement. I provide you answers in PM. You and/or your mate connect to irc. We answered the questions you asked us. I am very disappointed.
  2. There is a cycle of two free interesting mooc (on an "academic" site) https://www.fun-mooc.fr/courses/course-v1:EPHE+126001+session01/about It's in french only but I share it because it fits perfectly with 0ad art, history and timeframe: from Alexander death to Actium defeat and it covers more or less the whole Alexander's empire area. Enjoy!
  3. I asked related question here: https://wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?/topic/25504-special-units-and-so-on/&tab=comments#comment-371680
  4. Hi! What do you mean by that? (can you detail it a bit more?)
  5. Yes they have, I showed a fun example. In some mods, there are chariots with it too. (I am still writing the note I promised to you.)
  6. I don't request a subforum about special units, it's just a topic about that without any other purpose to speak of that in a generic way It seems the post above was posted in the wrong topic, am I wrong?
  7. I hope everyone enjoyed it. I would congrat those who got all the refs. Hehe good point, I didn't know
  8. Well some news. After 6 months of hard work, it was the time to have a real life meeting. So we met during 3 days in Molvania at our own expenses. We had profitable discussions and spend also a lot of times to code. It was also the moment for us to discuss about our recent new contributors. Among them, I would cite Richard and Eric, or our Nvidia gpu expert Benedict (he could become our future community manager), Donald Ervin who will write some docs, Brian and Dennis who will help us on the c part of the code (they are currently busy writing a book), or Alex who plan to help us on the AI but currently busy to learn many things. The last day, we take a good dinner based on pizzas, garlic and cheese sandwiches and last but not least pork and beans. We kept the tarte flambée for after our STK game. We was really exhausted and took some rest watching Escape from New York. The end scene, the fact that one of our dev have removed thousand lines of dead code and perhaps some fermented beverage led us to take a decision: we had to fork our own fork. We are proud to announce that the name of our meta fork is Spoon AD.
  9. black_cloak Those Thracian guys armed with Rhomphaia Wikipedia knowledge as entry point :-) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thracians The weapon https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhomphaia The clothing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thracian_clothing (is black cloak the good name?) The battle of Pydna https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Pydna (Are Black cloaks mainly the clothes wear during 3rd Macedonian war between mace and rome?)
  10. Thorakites wikipedia is a good entry point https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thorakitai For that one there are interesting things to do, current vanilla 0ad missed it a bit.
  11. While reading old irc logs from 2010-2011, I read ideas about having different path of "upgrading" soldiers depending of the civ. I don't quote but that idea (from "Mythos") was: for example: - cart upgrades by ethnicity - pers upgrades Infantry and Cavalry separately - greek upgrade by unit type (spearmen, javeliners, ...) - celt, iber upgrade by weapons (sword, spear, ...) There are things like that in DE mod and there was also in WFG 0ad before almost all was flatten in the blacksmith. Let's talk.
  12. Thureophoros I won't paste book so let's use wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thyreophoroi - Is it an improved peltast? - Was it used by spart, mace, athen, sele, ptol? - For which civ was it considered as a merc? - How to include that compared to peltast? - Is there a point to have that hellenic actor compared to the ptol ones?
  13. Yeah the use as special starting structure sounds good (more or less what it was planned at some time).
  14. Zegema beach vacations were cancelled. Stay tuned ;-)
