  1. Wikipedia concurs and cites a book that I couldn't find online: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stirrup#cite_note-Chamberlin80-13 Looking at the location of the temples where those engravings are (from wikipedia again), it's right in the middle of the Maurya empire, and the dates kind of fit - I would say it seems like a very good late-game technology. Historically, it might be 50-100 years too early, but it's an interesting trivia and it feels unique enough that we might give it a pass.
  2. Hell @1dabred , Can you confirm that you ran: cd libraries/osx ./build-osx-libs.sh -j3 and that you had no errors?
  3. I'm really warming up to D2875/shrink variant, I think.
  4. It's been committed now, thanks for reporting
  5. My opinion/argument is that it is impossible, unless we: Effectively reduce the # of civs (e.g Celt, Greek, Roman, Kushites), by making the different "sub-civs" very similar. Effectively make all civs very similar. We can't get AoE2 level of variety because our tech tree/unit tree is much too small. @Genava55 seems to side with #1. I'd rather take the 3rd option I'm presenting in the OP.
  6. I know, but that particular RLInterface project doesn't use pch, so that it makes a difference at all is a bit odd to me, but there's obviously something I'm missing.
  7. Are you compiling without precompiled headers perhaps? I find it odd that it fails, since the CI worked, but it seems like it could. I've posted a diff here: https://code.wildfiregames.com/D2928 can you patch and confirm?
  8. Just to clarify: I don't want to prevent Briton vs Mauryan fights for example, I just don't want to guarantee that this would be a balanced fight. So players would pick from the same "group" in competitive MP.
  9. I updated the first post, removing notes about "tiers" since that's not really the heart of my argument. My point is that we should have "groups" of civs, which are internally diverse yet balanced. Matchups between civs from different groups are not guaranteed to be balanced. The logical conclusion is that some groups might end up overall stronger than others, but I think the highlight here is that civilisations in history adapted to their rivals and their context, and thus sentences like "Would the Roman have kicked the ass of the Zapotec?" make no sense.
  10. There kind of has to be generalisations if you're going to tier our civilisations. My claim is that these generalisations will actually be less than what we need to do to balance all civs together. Yet it is unarguable that they were at some point the biggest empire in the world. Time periods change, but I don't think it's absurd to group them alongside Macedonians and Mauryans as the 3 biggest empires of our time period (which is honestly more like 500-250BC than 250-0BC... Rome is a bit problematic in this setup) I'm not trying to make a comment on which civilisation would be best overall, in fact I'm trying to do the exact opposite. My point is that we can balance Macedonians and Persians and Mauryans and have some fun gameplay. I mean, the Romans did beat Carthage in the first Punic war owing, in parts, to a strong navy. Yeah, this is exactly what I'm trying to do here, but I've obviously failed to convey that.
  11. This has been merged: https://code.wildfiregames.com/rP23917
  12. I think it would be _awesome_ to do a UX-oriented review of our GUI and our screens.

    I think you just have to iterate over it, or use some set-functions: https://developer.mozilla.org/fr/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Objets_globaux/Set

    I think for techs and such, it might be because they're using a Map() object which doesn't print much when printing it?
  15. This looks interesting As one of the older AI devs (Mostly on Aegis, which was the intermediate between qBot and our current Petra), I think you might want to focus on a single bot with configurability. Improving capabilities and having distinct personalities are somewhat orthogonal concerns. I see two options for getting this in-game: - Propose incremental changes as patches. - If the bot becomes impossibly different, you can always request that we package yours alongside Petra at some point once it's stable enough.
