  1. I mean I keep promoting mods I keep retweeting when people tag me, we have mod.io and moddb, I talk about mods at events, I even showed @maroder 's new UI at the Japan Tours Festival. My issue right now is I'm maintaining too many of them. Warcraft Themed one, starcraft, wwII, american civil war, MLP etc...

  2. I would support some way of upgrading spartan hoplites or some kind of training aura for surrounding units, but I don’t agree with the “young Spartans” system. It seems overly complicated for the gameplay benefit it might deliver. I think this system is straying from the scope of 0ad and I think there are simpler and more elegant ways to incorporate Spartiates’ social and military roles into Sparta as a 0ad civ.

  3. Hi everyone, I've created over 2000 tracks of original music and sound effects that you are welcome to freely use in your games and projects. All I ask is to be attributed as described on my website: soundimage.org/ I sincerely hope some of my tracks are helpful. Enjoy! :-)

  5. A few things, the texture density on separate parts of the roof are different on the right model, which looks unnatural, there was some consideration for the ridges of the roof on the left that is lacking on the right. the left model also uses parallax maps which let it interact more convincingly with the light source

  6. That's what I told Stan, that we should promote mods or modding.

  8. I don't know where is a good place to put this thread. But i thought it was a really good discussion to have and I think it will be helpful. Both of these videos I think are extremely helpful for game design and may help to give direction and focus to developers, modders and the project as a whole. Here are some key points: Many players of RTS only play Single player campaigns, and no competitive. For Starcraft 2, this was about an 80%/20% split. Many extremely popular games are extremely moddable: Minecraft, Skyrim, Roblox, Team Fortress, Halo 3. From this, I think that Modding, and sharing and playing mods co/op should be a focus of development. Single player campaigns are great, but this is something which comes after really good modding and mod sharing tools are implemented. Things such as balancing are much easier to do with modding tools, as makers can share their own versions of balancing. Some of these balancing settings could even be chosen from game setup(I'm not sure what to include yet).

  11. I don't think they were good soldiers. We know for sure that one of the challenges the young spartans had to face during their "training" for being hoplites was the "crypteia/κρυπτεία". They had to go out in the night and find helots, with the only task of killing them and stealing their food. They were literally used as meat for training, and that makes me think of a more or less null and void military preparation among them. An ancient greek historian, Mirone di Priene, even said that the helots "too physically similar to a spartan in strength and vigor" were killed with no hesitation. As far as I remember, but I can't give a precise source, when called to the military duties helots were usually equipped with a pike but without armor (lol). Sometimes they were also slingers, or simply used to bring food to the soldiers in the battlefield. Hope this can help, finally my 5 years of ancient greek classes in high school are showing some utility lmao

  12. That's because newer pipelines use PBR. So they have roughness and metallic or roughness and glossiness and no longer specular. Changing this would require redoing all the textures. But it might happen someday. Diffuse would become an albedo, and we'd need to get rid of all the light information Optimization. Instead of having one diffuse, spec and normal texture per model, you have one per civ. And not all of them have AO.

  15. @Pemulis i understand how frustrating this is, i myself personally talked to this guy called Frinsong and he made it clear he was having an argument with one other Islamic guy in the game but the guy suddenly disappeared. Well, i told him if he continue this he might get banned and he promised "yesterday" is his last time. He won't do it again. Hopefully he don't repeat.

  18. most of the work, for what I get now, is on the engine. modding support is pros-and-cons, but where the game is really lacking for me is spectacularity, among the three points that first video elists. by the way, those were good points, I also liked the videos on game design by the general gentlemen, that were posted by @Lion.Kanzen some time ago.

  19. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saracen Ptolemy's 2nd-century work, Geography, describes Sarakēnḗ (Ancient Greek: Σαρακηνή) as a region in the northern Sinai Peninsula.[2][3] Ptolemy also mentions a people called the Sarakēnoí (Ancient Greek: οἱ Σαρακηνοί) living in the northwestern Arabian Peninsula (near neighbor to the Sinai).[2][3] Eusebius in his Ecclesiastical history narrates an account wherein Pope Dionysius of Alexandria mentions Saracens in a letter while describing the persecution of Christians by the Roman emperor Decius: "Many were, in the Arabian mountain, enslaved by the barbarous 'sarkenoi'."[2][3] The Augustan History also refers to an attack by Saraceni on Pescennius Niger's army in Egypt in 193, but provides little information as to identifying them.[13]

  20. Saracens (Lat. Sarraceni, Fr. Sarrasins) was used in the period of the crusades as an indiscriminate term for Muslims. Originally designating one ethnic group in the Arabian Peninsula, by late antiquity it had become a synonym for Arabs, and it was employed by Latin chroniclers of the eighth and ninth centuries to describe the Muslim Arab invaders in the Mediterranean region. In the twelfth century, chroniclers of the First Crusade (1096-1099) and poets of the chansons de geste (Old French epic poems) applied the term to Turks, Arabs, and other Muslims, creating a colorful and wildly inaccurate portrait of Saracens who worshipped pantheon idols, the chief among them Mahomet. At the same time, theologians offered polemical refutations of the Lex Sarracenorum (Law of the Saracens), as they generally called Islam. The travel narratives and romances of the later Middle Ages often blend literary topoi of pagan Saracens with more realistic depictions of Islam. The term Saracen gradually fell into disuse by the seventeenth century, to be replaced by Turk, Mohammedan, and Moslem. The origins of the Latin word Sarracenus are obscure; the hypothesis of its derivation from the Arabic sharqiyyin (the plural of sharql, “Easterner”) is not universally accepted. Roman writers used the term to designate one ethnic group in eastern Arabia. By the third century, the term designated all of the nomadic Arabs of the peninsula. Some authors affirmed that the Saracens worshiped idols of stone. The theologian Jerome asserted that the Saracens were the descendants of Abraham through his handmaid Hagar and their son, the “wild man” Ishmael (Genesis 16:12); they thus should be properly called Hagarenes or Ishmaelites, but they falsely called themselves Saracens, claiming to be the descendants of Abraham’s legitimate wife Sarah. This etymology was taken up by Isidore of Seville and many subsequent Latin authors. It no doubt seemed to fit the experience of those who chronicled the conquests and raids of the Sar- raceni in the seventh and eighth centuries. Very few chroniclers showed any interest in the religion of these invaders, and those who did showed little awareness of the rise of Islam; they contented themselves with repeating what they found in Jerome and Isidore. https://erenow.net/postclassical/crusades/834.php?s_pt=source2

  23. Look at games like Minecraft and Skyrim. Even games like Dota which came from the modding community. If we can make the game so it's tremendous fun to mod, you could have an influx of user created "Hyrule" and similar. Anyone with the right assets can make their own game. I think the Engine itself could use more mechanics(old ones like stealth, attack ground, formations) and game performance(Level of Detail etc). If the options are there, the modders will work out what to do, and the community will vote with their play time. This engine layer would be one that people do not mod(much), or will be more difficult to mod. But templates and art are much easier and safer to integrate and version and pass around.

  24. I will likely name the mod as XIII Century AD (Somehow similar to Bigtiger's but mine will be have a more generic feel) For an instance I am naming my first faction as Westerners (code: west), to somehow represent the Western Europeans at the time of the 13th Century. Then the Easterners (Eastern European) Southerners? (Southern European) I am not quite sure what word to use to refer to the Islamic faction.

  25. I really think that if modding tools are great, and the engine is developed more, then the mod community have the potential to bring tons of casual players to the game. The other things related to game success are about things which a good mod could fix. So mod sharing focus is key imo.

  26. Me and @Jammyjamjammanadded a random map that's based on this concept to the community maps mod. Again, it's just a slightly modified continent.js. The skirmish maps mentioned above have been removed. The map is called Homer's Delight.

  32. @Stan`, how do I achieve this then? When user press Enter the sound should be triggered too, is there any event handler that covers that. Any suggestions or best practice?

  42. The consensus is to change the Persian wonder to the Throne Hall of Darius (the "Apadana"). We'd change the current "Apadana" structure to the "Tachara" (Winter Palace). We can then use the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, et al. for a new Capture the Wonder game type.
