Remove Mercenary Nubian Archer from Ptolemaic Army.

Why? As far as I know Egyptian armies have often included mercenaries, among them Nubian archers. Perhaps not in every timeframe (I would suspect they were less keen on having them around surrouding the time of Kushite occupation, ±700 BC). If there is no historical basis for these archers, would you have a correct (preferably ranged) alternative?

Maybe make a timer like aom. And add another unit.

He is suggesting Add Cretan archers , because we can't proof about Ptolemies the use of them.

That seems weird to me that ptolemies would use guys from an Island, instead of guys from the same area...

Ptolemaic army didn't trust the natives, because the the regime wasn't a real native regime.

So, why use natives if they hate you?

Returning to the updater idea, how about offering a second download that leaves out the unganged art asset? I think a lot of bandwidth could be saved this way. We could also consider offering a Torrent link like LibreOffice does to save some server resources.

It's not an issue for us as we use SourceForge to host the downloads (excluding the ones available via the different Linux distros + we do have it up on Indiedb as well) and they have a ton of mirrors, so bandwidth is not an issue.

Just a thought on the updater concept fedora uses delta RPM's which generated the final RPM on the client side,the server side infrastructure is in Python IIRC.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Just a thought, for people with lousy computers like me.

Would there be a way to limit the number of particle effects on screen at any given point in time? I like to see the flaming javelins and stones, but when there is a line of elite iberian skirmisher infantry throwing thirty flaming javelins at a time, it gets pretty hectic. Even if a computer can handle that sort of punishment, it gets really hard to see.

I'm talking about automatically cutting back when there are too many particle effects on-screen

agree with this, in desert maps and snow, sometimes so some weird.

The other is, the rumbles when destroy a big structure, units build under all trash materials some weird. i dont know if is possibly block a build or path over the rumbble material.

LordGood: I understood, I was merely suggesting that you could improve your framerate otherwise. I'm fairly sure the max number of particle is easy to modify, we could have a setting for it I guess.
