  1. Please excuse the silliness of the question but I'm new and can't find any. What I was hoping to find in one of these forums was a simple page full of user created scenarios and campaigns. Can you please direct me to such a place? I really love the game by the way. I've seen a lot of reports of other people having problems but it plays flawlessly for me until populations start to get too large. Best answer to that is to go and reduce someone else's population. Build 23 running on Fedora 27 straight from F27 repository Core i5 6500 builtin graphics, 16 Gb ram. Cheers, Andrew
  2. Hi Stanislas69, Please don't take my critcisms personally. I understand the this is only an early deveopment version of the game, but this is also the time when decisions like this need to be made. I would truly love to see this game become successful, and it's off to a good start. What I truly wish for is to be able to dump Windows completely, the only thing I still use it for is games. Cheers, Andrew.
  3. Another opinion now that I've played the game a bit - sorry but you're making exactly the same mistake that Microtoss did with their AoE series. Let me explain. The first AoE truly was a brilliant strategy game, I played the demo before the game was released and I still play the game today, nearly 20 years later. AoE II had slightly better graphics but the upgrades available were too much, a lot of the need for strategy was replaced by simply being able to gather resources more quickly. It wasn't as much fun to play although I still have it installed. AoE III was a waste of time and space. Because of the advanced graphics they had to limit the map sizes. Maps are so small that there isn't enough room to employ any strategies, all you get is a little kiddy's "in your face" slogging match. You can't sneak around the back of your opponent, you can't decoy your opponent into exploring in the wrong direction, there just isn't enough room on the map. I uninstalled AoE III after 3 days and dropped the disk in the bin. What a waste. To give you an idea of how big maps really need to be in order for this to be a true strategy game, the Thessalian Plains map makes a good 2 player map, but then you start to notice lagging in the game because of the graphics. I never play on public servers but I do enjoy playing against friends via a direct connection, I was very impressed that you included this ability in 0AD. If you can find some way to mitigate the lagging on large maps (less intense graphics maybe) it might become a replacement for AoE. I would suggest removing the clouds for a start, they seem to provide nothing other than annoyance. Cheers, Andrew.
  4. Thanks for the suggestion, Fabio. Interesting to see how far it's come in less than 2 years. I'm still a rubbish player though. Cheers, Andrew.
  5. Just tried 0ad for the first time and wanted to give you my first impressions while they're still fresh. I like it. I love the graphics. Although it gives all the warnings I never had any lagging and noticed no glitches or bugs. Fullscreen 1920 X 1080 on an old intel ivybridge built in graphics with 1 Gb ram dedicated to graphics, leaving 7 Gb ram for Ubuntu 14.04. I think I'm running a slightly outdated version though, I got it straight from the repositories but it's listed as 0ad-0.0.15. I only played a sandbox game and population only got up to around 100 but it played perfectly. This game is going to just get better and better, good job! Now I'm going to have another go. Cheers, Andrew.
