  1. My question to you than is, why speak of an empire? what is the value of the word empire in this context? Why do you not just speak of an ethnic or cultural group? Would that not cover the definition of what you are speaking of?
  2. Hello people, I'm soon starting a paper for my studies (Ma. Archaeology), to be more precise for the course Archaeological Theory and approach. The paper will deal with the issue of the different interpretations concerning identity of the Celts and Gauls e.g. was one group a subgroup of the other, where they two seperate groups, where the two groups overlapping etc. If I remember correctly this is an issue that has been encountered by either the Wildfire Games crew, more specifically the history departement or as a discusion within the general community. Because of this I decided to start my q
  3. Ok, I have ripped a few images out of a powerpoint from one of my teachers, that deals with the topic of religious constructions from the Iron age, mostly in the Netherlands. However, I've also added a French temple from around the same period that shows certain similarities, but is way more impressive and would be more appropriate for usage in a game. (And it was also in the powerpoint... lol) These reconstructions are both from the 1st century A.D. a bit later but very similar. Still based on Dutch finds. And now the more impressive French one from Gournay sur Arronde from the 2nd centur
  4. Why does the Celtic temple look like Stonehenge :'(
  5. Trees fell over in AOM, you don't need a physics engine for it, although a physics engine mmight improve a few minor things (In AOM the trees can fall into higer ground I believe)
  6. Meh, too much of a hassle.
  7. Oh ok, didnt know that xD sorry lol. Great!
  8. In age of empires one and two an age of mythology, after you play a random map game and you've finished it, then that's it. There's not much of an achievement other then your own satisfaction, which is ok... but it could be better. In Age of Empires 3 they had the homecity system, everytimme after you played a random map game you could upgrade your home city, leading to more sense of achievement and giving you more motivation to keep playing, however there where some clear disadvantages (which most of you allready know I'm sure). My idea is to have a singleplayer mode, something like "world" c
  9. This scares me, because I have a 1.5 or so Ghz CPU...
  10. No I wouldn't, but others might like it, I just never play games in dutch, I hate it, even though I love our language ofcourse P.S. Groningen city ftw!
  11. Hereby I sign up! (If this is the way it works) for I am an Archaeologist . (I do assume they ship outside the US) -EDIT- Erik, Age 19

  13. actually that is not quite true. According to the Mayan calendar the next recreation of the world type of thingie is on the 15th of October 4772. 2012 does have a special status within the Mayan culture but would have been a year they would have celebrated when it would come, rather than running around screaming and panicking.
