  1. I would suggest the word "efippos" that comes from the ancient Greek word "έφιππος" that means "man on a horse"
  2. Hello friends! I would like to say something about the renewable resources. In the fantastic game Spellforce the order of dawn tha resources were renewable except for the trees. The stone, metal, and some other weird things were reduced as you gather them and it was nice cause the shape of the stones reduced till there was only a minimum which could not be gathered. Then you waited for a while and the stones grow up larger again slowly slowly and could gather them. Not neceserly when they grow up full. It was your choice. As for the trees i remember on the other great game The Settlers where a forester was used planting new trees. The trees grow up slowly and when they grow up fully the lumberjack could cut them down. I think it would be great of we could see something like that in 0 A.D. and i vote "yes" to the renewability of the resources. I also agree that cutting down everything in the map makes the map ugly and not so nice to play. Please consider my thoughts and have a nice day
  3. Hey Vlad! Tell us what OS you use. Linux or Windows. Also tell us what kind of graphics card you use. Nvidia or ATI? And then tell us what is the driver's version. Then we may help you. If you can't tell us by your own ask your unkle to help you finding out
  4. When i installed the game it didn't even let me run it saying i must update my nvidia drivers. I had 260.19.21 and after installing 260.19.44 the game started! Maybe you need up-to-date drivers for your graphics card.
  5. So to sum up Oikon becomes Oikos Sitobolion becomes Sitoboleion Strategion becomes Strategeion Limenos becomes Limen Pule becomes Pyle Plio becomes Naus Everything else stays as it is. Do you agree?
  6. Ok but since Sitovoleion is the building where you put or set the wheat and not throw it and since we are talking about ancient Greek (βάλλω "v") and not modern English (ball "b") shouldn't we name it Sitovoleion instead of Sitobolion? As for the "e" you may be right there cause it sounds better like that. Nothing more. Thanks for the constructive conversation. I hope the developers can figure out and filter out what we discussed and give the correct names to everything that needs so
  7. Well it is ok to be harsh as long as you are constructive. Let me give further explanations. 1.) You say that triiris should stay trieres. The greek word is Τριήρης. Both ι and η greek charachters are spelled as i in english so i spelled it as Triiris. It may sound better as Trieres so lets leave it this way you are correct. 2.) The v and b that you say changed during history is wrong assumption. Sitovoleion comes from the word sitos (σίτος) and the verb vallo (βάλλω). Σίτος means wheat. βάλλω means stick or put or set. You'll see that if you do the google translation. So it is v and not b. There is no ballo. So we have the word Σιτοβολλείον that in english is spelled Sitovoleion right? 3.) Stratigeion (not Strategeion) is the word Στρατηγείον and is something different from stratopedo (Στρατόπεδο) which is the correct word instead of the stratopedion that you used so..whatever. Stratopedo is the army camp. Stratigeion is the "General's place" if you know what i mean... 4.) Thyra...Pyle whatever...i am fine with both. Both are correct as far as i am concerned 5.) Limin is not limen cause the ancient Greek word is λιμήν so...it is Limin. It should be λιμέν to spell it limen... I hope using Greek doesn't make my points more confusing. I do it for better understanding...
  8. Let me explain 1.) In Greek the words that define space like buildings or rooms use an "ei" when they end as "eion". In game there is a building named "Anakleion" that shows that. That is why the correct is for the Strategion to become Stratigeion and for the Sitobolion to become Sitovoleion. 2.) The word Oikon is also incorrect cause it is only used when we say kat-oikon which means inside the house. The correct word is Oikos that means House. http://el.wiktionary...%BA%CE%BF%CF%82 3.) The word Limenos is wrong. The modern Greek word is Limenas and the Ancient Greek word is Limin. http://el.wiktionary...%BC%CE%AE%CE%BD 4.) The word Pule is almost the modern Greek word Pyli that means gate. The ancient Greek word for gate is Thyra. From the word Thyra comes the word thyreus that means escutcheon http://el.wiktionary...%8D%CF%81%CE%B1 5.) Trieres is also wrong. The correct in ancient Greek is Triiris and the same it is when you refer to many ships of that kind. One Triiris, two hundred Triiris. http://el.wiktionary...%81%CE%B7%CF%82
  9. Hello and congratulations. After i played the Hellenes (Hellines) i noticed that some buildings and units are not named correctly. For example: Oikon should be Oikos Sitobolion should be Sitovoleion Strategion should be Stratigeion Limenos should be Limenas or Limin Pule should be Puli or Thura and for some units is not clear whether you want to use modern Greek or ancient Greek like for example: Plio which is modern greek word for ship so it should change to the ancient greek word naus. The same goes for the unit Emporiko plio Also Trieres should be Triiris Some other units here and there are also a bit confusing like the Spartiate which should be either Spartan in English or Spartiatis in Greek. Anyway, great game and hope you keep your efforts up. Great graphics especially the sea reflections and all...and great music very atmospheric great great
