  1. Please respect each other, criticise the game and its development all you want (though if you actually want to increase the chances of your opinion being considered -- doing so in a polite and constructive way is a good idea), but this forum is no place to mistreat other people.

    @feneur sorry for ping, but could you please consider splitting this one? 

    Done, and for the record, the below comment in a previous post seems to have been what set it off:


    PRIVATE NOTE:  The engine I worked with, before, was Vegastrike.  If you've never looked at it, thank your favorite god and perform the appropriate sacrifices.

    Great, many thanks! Censorship of ‘cum’ out of ignorance is rather annoying: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-44217118

    I would say it's more a matter of making things easy for oneself/doing something that works in most cases than ignorance, the places where people use latin are probably fewer than where people would deem the modern meaning of those letters/sounds to be inappropriate.


    Also, a-s-s (wild donkey)?

    Sure, that's pretty mild even if used as profanity I would say, so I'll remove it from the censored words.

  4. I'm locking this thread. It just seems to cause trouble and conflict, without rendering any benefit to anyone - rather anger and hatred. I'm sure there are aspects which can be discussed in a meaningful way, but most of this topic has not proved to be very meaningful. Let the forums be a place where we discuss the game and its development, and related topics where it might be relevant. But please try and stay away from more controversial subjects, even if they are meaningful to you, the likelihood that you will influence someone else is very slim, but the likelihood that you will make people angry and act stupid is massive.

    of course you can. we aren't greedy corp.

    It's not that easy, and not really about greed either. In this case I'd say it's probably fine, it's just showing that the video is of the game 0 A.D. but there can be situations where it's not as obvious. Especially if the WFG logo is used on something that is not officially sanctioned by the WFG team, if it's something bad people might then think that we are supporting that. So it's not just free for everyone to use the logos. Better to ask even if it seems obvious, than not to ask when you absolutely should have.

    r, could you split off the Colossus of Rhodes related posts from this thread and merge them with https://wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?/topic/28096-wonder-colossus-of-rhodes/&tab=comments#comment-395879 ?

    Most of what I can see is in posts where there already are more on-topic discussion going on + now @marius4 has posted the links in that thread already, so I've just hidden the Colossus-only posts, and if people want to edit their posts + post in that thread instead that would be good, but in either case I don't think what is posted as part of other posts really add enough of value to go through and split up individual posts :)

    I might be missing something, but I can't seem to find where it says, ok, now I see, you mean 2018, not 2008, that makes a lot more sense :P Did he post his post on that date? Because if so it works as supposed as far as I understand things. If he made the original post at some other time it's not working I guess.

    Yup, that Kokiri tech works in a very similar way to the Fairy Seasons, they both cause units with a certain classlabel to promote into a different unit. In the case of the Kokiri though it's only certain units, with the Fairies every single unit and building promotes at the same time. I can imagine that is probably taxing on the engine when there are hundreds of fairy units and dozens of buildings all trying to promote at the same time. Hopefully a less expensive method of transforming units into new units is incorporated some day.

    Is there a way to make it gradual, and only promote a smaller number at a time? Seasons rarely change instantly in the real world at least, so it would make sense from that perspective if nothing else =)

  9. Hello. Thanks for your report, please try again now. (For anyone interested my guess is that we/I missed changing http to https in the URL, and most browsers/OSs aren't as strict about it, which would explain why it works mostly, but didn't this time. Might also have been some temporary thing with the server, but in either case probably good to update the URLs =) )
