    Reading, reading and reading =) I do also enjoy being in the forest, walking, painting, drawing, taking photos, playing around in Photoshop and other graphics programs, writing, creating crosswords, spending time with my friends. Playing computer games, mostly RTSs, why else would I be here. As if that wasn't enough I do also have some plants to take care of, and from time to time I sculpt using plaster.

    Roland (Gaul) v DoctorOrgans (Sparta) 2x

    Locked this topic as it's not adding to the actual discussion of the gameplay etc but is just an argument over who's better - which is quite pointless in an unfinished game, so it's probably worth spending your time on something more rewarding
  2. Choose Scenario as the Map Type, Demo Maps in the Map Filter, and then select the map called Units Demo
  3. Definitely, could someone suggest what to write though? Especially since we haven't really told people that we are working on a re-release, so it might be good to begin with that
  4. Click on your user name in the top right menu, then move your mouse cursor down a bit to the left and click on the image icon that appears over the ring that contains the W that is used instead of an image right now. That will give you a menu where you can choose different ways of adding a profile picture.

    Patreon.

    I would actually suggest that individual developers set up semi-official Patreons themselves, that way it wouldn't complicate things for SPI, and it could probably help make it more apparent that the patreons would be helping an actual human being and not just a faceless organization =)
  6. I guess I'm convinced I've got to play it again =) I'll probably wait until it's on sale though, I have far too many games I'm not playing of the ones I've bought already
  7. Wow, that takes me back =) I played it a bit, I think, it might have been The Guild 2 the base game though, or perhaps both. Was a long time ago, maybe I should try it again. I bought it/them via the Gamestop app though and haven't been able to access them for years, so I'd probably have to buy it again I remember spending some effort trying to become part of the city council, but if I remember correctly it was pretty difficult. At least to stay in power

    Lolig Screenshots

    Not sure what's supposed to be funny about it, to me it looks more like people being rude towards a newcomer. Which might not be the case, but if it is it's certainly not something to be proud of and definitely not going to help grow the community.
  9. If you look at it from the other side: someone is playing, then leaves. How can then the other player know anything about why the first player leaves? From the limited information available it is as easy to believe that someone is cheating as that someone is having issues with their internet connection. You can, however, report it here in the forums and it can be looked into, it's a lot more likely that the moderators will be positive towards you if you don't call people weirdoes or assume that there is some bad intention without more information (that is kind of the same thing as you are accusing the moderator/community of after all). @user1 @Hannibal_Barca

    Translation of command

    If there would be a lot of translation topics it should have a forum of its own but for now, the https://wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?/forum/312-game-development-amp-technical-discussion/ forum is the best place I guess. I'll move this topic there

    [NOT] Just Another UI

    That's most definitely spam, or yeah, as Vladislav says, not really professional enough to do a good enough job anyway.

    Any news about lag fix

    This is mentioned here: But to answer your question: it's impossible to say (and to some extent to do as well, a game completely free from lag is probably not possible to achieve) as the issue is too complex. It's not just one little thing that can be improved and fix the problem, but rather a lot of smaller and bigger issues which together mean that the game doesn't run well enough under certain circumstances. To complicate it further plenty of the improvements needed to get the lag down to acceptable levels are among the most complicated areas of programming (perhaps especially pathfinding - how the units move around), so it's not just a matter of finding more people to work on it either as they not only need to be (or become) very skilled, they also need to be very familiar with the 0 A.D. code. All in all, this means that while small improvements continue to be made it will take a lot of time and a lot of work before lag is reduced enough. And that is not necessarily easy to define either. If you only play on small maps, using a few units, with only one other player, no AIs, are on the same local network or have a good internet connection, etc it's probably running pretty well already. But if you want to play on bigger maps, with more units, etc it will take a while before it runs well. If you also want to have all the graphical features set to max/enabled or don't have a very fast computer, or have high requirements for the number of frames per second you need to be able to enjoy the game, then it will take even longer.
