  1. Honestly I still have high hopes that 0ad will become my final dream game before I stop playing pc games. The only problem is that I’m too old to keep on waiting that I have to keep on finding games that suits my liking. I will never abandon this game even if I’m not playing it in the meantime while DoM suits my liking. It’s just like who likes what. Even if I play another game I still put 0ad on the discussion because I’m hopeful that someday sooner my interest on the game will be back. The same as RoN which I tried to comeback for MP games since I noticed that bugs and fixes are in place still and to my surprise whenever I logged on to steam my old buddies (two of them are retired workers already, 60-70 y/o) and those who left for so long were back or still in the game. If I’m only capable in the development I could have done it and do mod unfortunately my engineering background did not develop well to adapt to the new technology. Nevertheless I can only contribute monetarily and I promised before that I will contribute whenever a new alpha is released. Also I always support by advertising the game whenever I go or do. What im surprised with DoM is that there were only 2 developers and they created an awesome single player game. It’s not even polished but the improvements imo can easily be done. The modification seems to me like less complicated than 0ad despite so many features that needs more tweaking. Players were even clamoring for the devs not to introduce MP because it might mess up the game. The only problem which I haven’t asked is whether it can be DL and played without internet while 0ad has.
  2. If the game is almost close to completion and the Meta is still the same IMO MP playing will be not be too attractive due to its repetitiveness. Therefore mods should be developed more. DE, 0abc and Angen’s combine with the mil AD and terra magna should be improved gameplay wise with city building mode. Then create better maps that are more realistic. The tech aspects should not just for balancing but rather on the realisticity. 0ad needs more focus on realistic single player.
  3. Im currently playing Dawn of Man and I guess I have to be away from 0ad for awhile until the game mechanics becomes closer to my taste. Although I will continue monitoring the progress and still hoping that this game will become the best ever RTS game with realistic scenario. 0ad game base is there already but it needs to be developed more on the single player mode. A mode that is not very repetitive, lively, and the most important thing realistically. I had fun playing MP games lately and became a bit competitive but my priority is SP. I tried to comeback to RoN because it has the best game mechanics strategy for my liking but lost my skills as well as not yet playable on Mac OS. Many people would think DoM is just that easy because you only have raiders but I think it’s wrong. I haven’t gone all the way to achieve the fullest milestones but I played more than 140 hours already. It’s not yet fine tuned but if mods come in and help the only 2 dev guys this game will become really really good. There are so many suggestions already and some modders are coming in because I think it’s not really hard to mod it. I bought many games already but never had that immense feelings of a dynamic realistic game. My Banished, Strongholds, Civs etc to name a few will be just sitting idle or not be played anymore. I hope 0ad will hold and continue on progressing as well as more audience. It has a good foundation already but I think the progress needs to be upped more in any possible way or cost. I think 0ad needs a grand visionary or group of team development makers to finalize its objectives so the game can be in beta at least. If you prolong the status quo many upcoming games could diminish its popularity and eventually hope not fizzle. I think giving (financial)rewards to contributors even variably will help the pace and interest among them. Voluntary contributors here and there and whenever will just help a bit.You need to have a constant pace up to the full development. I will be alternating between DoM forums from steam and WFG 0ad while not playing and will still support the game in any way I can but playing wise it will take a tremendous and interesting gameplay for me to comeback and play 0ad. Since my work doesn’t require full time 8 hours attention I will still be participating in the forum whenever I can.
  4. Idk why I have no trouble hosting or joining the game using Mac OS X. The pc just promt me if I will allow the net from joining my hosting. I don’t bother to check my security settings but seems like they are on. The pc just ask confirmation of my user password and that’s it. Though my pc was corrupted a bit by Mac cleaner, bing etc when I DL a mod last time and having trouble getting rid of it short of resetting my pc to factory but that’s a huge endeavor since I have to re DL apps and things.
  5. Like Tropico. Ive been playing DoM since the release and it’s really awesome. Though there’s not much military involved yet but I think once you level up playing and have achievements it wil be very tough. What was in YouTube earlier were just the lowest level and if you are ready to play the harder ones ahead with probably tribal wars it’s going to be really tough. The economic aspect is really great. Plenty of resources, trees are regrown, fish too. Resources like wild plants, fruits, nuts etc are seasonal harvested as well as farm products. Taming young animals, hunting too are really natural. Minerals might not replenish but aplenty. There’s so many realistic mechanics though structures are really not good looking, anyhow you can’t expect much from very early peoples of this world. I hope 0ad or mod can be like this one day.
  6. It remains to be seen. There are many more military activities needed for the game to be immersive. If they DLC with tribal or faction wars and could even progress to medieval ages then it could become awesome. Like I said single player mode is the state of the game. What is important is a very lively base and unit activities compared to others. Weapons and resources need to be acquired, climate changes, unit behaviors etc are really fun. I hope the houses can have more variants. I bought banished but it’s too much all sim city. Small raids is just fine at least similar to tropico. I just bought it for $21 on 15% discount coz today is the first launch and can’t wait to go home and try, hoping it really runs on Mac OS.
  7. Dawn of Man will be my next single player game once it’s released! I just watched keralis YouTube and it’s really awesome. Lively game with very nice map and realistic event up to advancement. I hope they will have factions like in 0ad. One of the players last night said he is done with 0ad. Sad but he said the game becomes repetitive and got bored.
  8. Ohhh well! (__)! Hard to believe it’s you. Well I don’t want to say anything except that I saw Blue too. I don’t want to say much but I’ve noticed different attitudes of lots of people from all over the net. Idk if it’s dominant type of mentality some people are showing and I did not encounter much on my other net participation before. Idk maybe language barrier or it’s really the mentality/attitude. Me out.
  9. Very few players or even normal people read terms or rules. In most transactions I may be stupid not to read those but I can guarantee they will just click on it and go ahead. And to say that 0ad is more special that you have to read everything before you play than your regular online transaction is nonsense. The game is in development and you have to balance things so info could disseminate as well as keep more people active into it. If you don’t have that little flexibility I don’t think it’s going to be beneficial. It seems like because people aren’t being forced to play and work on the game is voluntary the devs couldn’t care less at all. I don’t think that is the kind of attitude that must be maintained here. Well I love the game but I wouldn’t care at all being banned in the lobby where most people have different attitudes as there is a single player games or other games. I wonder what fork can offer. Well cloud9 idk who you are...can’t tell.
  10. I don’t think it’s bad to have couple of accounts in the lobby as long as you don’t abuse it. I was requesting help to have another account so that if I have visitors or gamer relatives whom I can play in the same house to no avail. Though recently I found a way to have a new one and I’m using it so those who would like to play but can’t because no one wants to play then I come in and have fun. I could also fill up some vacant slots so a team game can proceed and balancing my little skill so that game can be a bit fun. I know it’s annoying for others not knowing who you are but I try to work around it just to have fun. There is a drawback too because if you use that “smurf” account you could hardly play with the higher level/competitive ones and/or fill up a vacant slot because they can’t recognize you and your level of skills to have a better balance. I think I can pretty much adapt to multiple situations and promise that I shall not abuse it. But getting banned is not really good to decent and not so bad attitude gamers.
  11. I know that path finding is much better in DE mod especially passing thru the woods but can we have exception on siege units? What I’m trying to emphasize is that if the trees are closed to each other Rams and other siege units must not be able to pass or go thru unless the gaps are big enough. Sometimes you generated a map with thick woods and you can build a tower or outpost that are almost impenetrable to be destroyed by the Ram and it brings some added fun or maybe strategy. Another thing I noticed is the initial Athenian women icon is like a slave one while others have the original initial ones.
  12. It's really amazing how @wowgetoffyourcellphone put the Parthenon back to the game. Man the only complain I have is that my chicken were dying from the cavalry trample. I can't wait to explore more of the different Civs you modded. But I will stay on this pretty generated Alphine lakes map for awhile until I build my base completely even if I had only 7 chicken left.

    I think errors on palisades is still there. Yes you can build it but you can’t make a gate. Also after you build a palisade and you want to make a gate then the error occurs. The error occur when you click on the built palisade. I will try to look if there is interesting log on it. Btw if I update and replace the previous one all saved games disappear too meaning I have a new file that stars from 0. Can’t it be that it just revise the file and have the saved games intact and all added ones will be available for the saved games?
