  1. Yes, you are absolutely right. But the issue is not true analysis of economics & warfare, it is simply the intro text to the game is worded in a sexist manner & that can easily be corrected. "Female citizens are purely economic units" has a dismissive tone as to imply females are like currency & nothing more. I'm sure these words would roll easily from Caligula's tongue. Remember, it's not about historical arguments if they were or were not, it's about how the text reads to a player today. I think azayrahmad did an excellent job in just putting a positive point in there about those units. I would just drop "purely" & then the whole thing is less negative. There is no 'woke' agenda here, I am not part of that movement at all. All I noticed was a intro that was a bit poorly worded & sounded negative & then I saw Crea's post & I replied because I agreed. It must be a bit off-putting for a girl reading that intro even before you start playing. Hopefully everyone can agree the above sounds more positive & clear for the game.
  2. Thanks for the info fabio. Although I haven't done this yet, it may be relevant to note that I also installed SuperTuxKart via Snap & had exactly the same issue with the error: si_init_perfcounters: max_sh_per_se = 2 not supported (inaccurate performance counters) That game also wouldn't open. I removed it & installed as "ubuntu-hirsute-universe" & then it ran fine.
  3. Crea is right. The language in the tutorial could be worded less sexist. I'm a 49 year old man & even I noticed that. This isn't about historical context, it's about wording modern game text in a way that doesn't make women sound worthless to people playing it. The description above singles out Females & then dismisses them as worthless in every area. Since this is part of the Tutorial, it's one of the first things you read opening the game. Personally I'd like to see both men & women in this untrained role, but at minimum the wording should be updated.

I solved the issue & now the game plays fine - what I did was uninstall the Snap & instead select "ubuntu-hirsute-universe" as the source in Ubuntu Software.
  5. Hi Stan, As I mentioned Im quite new to Linux so im not sure what this means.
  6. rico@Sulaco:~$ sudo 0ad [sudo] password for rico: ******************************************************** WARNING: Attempted to run the game with root permission!

  7. Hi, I'm running Ubuntu 21.04 on a new Thinkbook 14 g2 AMD Ryzen5 4500. 24gb ram I'm quite new to Linux so im not sure where to begin with this. I installed 0AD from the Ubuntu Software app, it is version: 0.0.24b-alpha, source: snapcraft.io When I try to open the game nothing happens. No error, no window. I just click on the icon in Apps & it goes to my desktop & that's it.
