Perhaps because some kind of a feature freeze started in March and is still in place now in July?

The eyecandy mod is like 2 years old breh.

Well... No reviews :) Everyone was dead two years ago.
Also the fact that I only recently had the power to do something about it. Which was really taken by reviewing the Kushites, the horse anims, and all the little art fixes :)

Yeah, I just looked at it and besides all the broken models and actors, a lot of the work isn't up to your current standards. Some stuff like a couple of the terrains, the barrels, the ferns, the carts, and the barriers are all good. Other stuff notsomuch. You're much better now. :)

So what'd you like to be in the game in their current state ? :)

Example: "Reconstruction of a roof with smoke-vent or skylight pan tile (opaion) from Acquarossa, Phase 3" (Etruscan):

Well...:unsure: Looks like chimney was bad idea... But I still hope developers will not abandon to build in missed gates at fortresses and at some other structures such as Mauryan Palace. Also fix roman barracks texture and do something with hellenic tiles and shifted to the right main buildings of Athenians and Macedonians. Luckily Spartans civil centre have correct position of main building.

Roman barracks and walls are getting a rework, don't worry about them. I'll see what I can do about the civic centers and the corresponding decal issue it brings up. This could be a very interesting 'drop prop' opportunity as well. Doors are a must for fortresses, I'm not sure what happened there to be quite honest.

If someone else tackles the doors, make sure they're sturdy wooden doors and not portcullises, latter is a staple of medieval castles, also another reason to remake the Roman barracks

Does someone know if the Mauryan palace one of those eyecandy buildings that was decided to be buildable in-game? I haven't played them in a good long while...

Yes definitely. A very important plant for the Egyptian maps.

Eh, how? Mapgen doesn't have anything that can really support making those kinds of mountains. I'm assuming the mesa thing was just a model but the rest of those things require mapgen and texturing capabilities that the game doesn't really support.

I was saying to the artists they could model some mountains. It has been mentioned before so they know what I mean.

What about just using foreign mountains from sketchfab? (And scale, change poltcount where needed)

E.g.:

Eh, you could obviously but they wouldn't really fit in to any map usefully that way.

Sure they can be. They can be given an obstruction (and be unselectable) in-game. I could see even backing a shaft mine up to them that players can build a storehouse on a slot to capture and gather metal.

its gonna look stupid, itll pop into existence out of the fog of war once you see the center point. I had that problem with the larger pony buildings. AoE 2 mountains do that too

I say that, but experimenting is the only way to know for sure

While it would not be that nice, it maybe possible to achieve a decent (by that I mean better than now) mountain generated fractally.

I misspoke. When comparing the Roman barracks to the Roman archery range and stable, it's a pretty good size.

No one ever trusts me. It's why I'm not a joiner. lol

One need only a small amount of imagination to imagine some changes made to the FOW renderer to render the mountain in the black map prior to being discovered (could be an actor tag), so that it just doesn't pop into existence. We could use such a tag for certain large objects (such as Wonders).

Something like this could be the basis for an "Open Pit" stone quarry.

Not with that fractal placer thing. Trust me I tried and it was only disappointing and frustrating. It might be possible to generate better mountains and things but it'd be difficult and expensive and way beyond my expertise at least.

So does it need to be redesigned still ? :)

About mountains we will see. I just noticed my screen colors are so off all the Roman roofs are pink instead of orange :/

It still needs redesigned, I was just wrong about the scale being too big. If anything, some of the other barracks are now too small compared to the archery ranges and stables.

 

The Roman roof colors are fine.
