  1. @Karamel I hope you succeed. DoM like units behavior and more realistic mechanics is really missing in the game.
  2. For now DoM has only raiders. Though I also like the game to have tribal wars but raiders in hardcore mode is really hard. Your settlement will be littered with towers that may not look good and realistic at all. You can eventually beautify your settlement when you reach the Iron Age and when you established their attack zones. There is a flaw on tower mechanics since the raiders can destroy it using arrows and spears despite having steel structures. At least towers don’t fire projectiles but only those range units garrisoned. The raiders are kind of invincible with full health, nutrition, hydration, stamina, and morale at all times as well as all are adults compared to your aging defenders. And if you face them head to head you will lose lots of your units that takes a long time to replace. When your population increases their numbers increase too. Somehow they attack during blizzards when your people are hampered by the bad weather while them are not. Neolithics which is under development by a single person seems to be awesome with warfare! But it may take awhile but hoping to be released if not this year maybe next year. Ancient Cities imo have better mechanics than DoM with more realistic game mechanics and already got some funding from donors (more than 100k pounds?!). But I haven’t seen their walls yet. 0ad Romans have the best wall so far for me.
  3. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1730436925 my settlement. But I think Neolithic is going to be better with armies, formations etc but still in development by 1 person. I can give 1 gift to anyone who likes to play and experience a single player game. Just give me a day or 2. It might be boring but just give it a try, free anyhow .
  4. DoM has only 2 devs with maybe a couple of help but the game is thriving because probably having a realistic mechanics. The game might be very tedious to play but omg it’s really awesome. 0ad have lots of better things than DoM, just lacking realistic features. IMO.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
