  1. All I have to say guys is that finally I can play with my friends against other people, without too much problem.

    However, they should never release a version so full of bugs, and they should give the people that still has a valid AoK edition a download for free. (I dont have one still, so doesnt matter to me).

    I do however find it very very pleasing that there are someone actually working on patches and maybe in future they will add new and exciting features. And yes, i know mods do that, but remember that this new version also comes with (as far as i know) a lot of new modding tools.

    So dear Microsoft, i dont like you in general, but this was a great idea in my opinion, even though you could be nicer to people already owning the game (considering you didnt really add anything except steamsupport).


  2. If 100 % realistic is what your going for, then do it. But I think it's silly. Playing a -game- is for entertainment, and of course the realism is a big part of that. But good games usually combine realism with playability.

    The main reason I hate the idea of having to look after your farms all the time, is that, realisticly, which lord\king\president\whatever had to do that? The slave or subject or whatever did that without any looking after. Why not unlimited? Why is it more unrealistic? If it matters that much, why not make animations of the farm? From planting, growing, harvesting. Dont really matter, but there is no point in making the player have to do these things. Unlimited just means, leave it to the game.

    But unlimited isnt the only option, just make it A LOT more than now, and more expensive. And make some sort of AoK system, cause it is one of the most annoying things in the RTS genre, when youve been off to war, recruiting soldiers and all that, and then 15 minutes later you have no food. Because as you went off to war, your farms ran out. And the dumb subjects\slaves whatever, stood there looking dumb because they have no mind of their own ^^ :D

  3. It's between Japan, China and Israel.

    Israel because of it's history, and because I have a friend who lived there for a year and says it's GREAT. Nothing like the bullshit you read in the papers and hear about in the news. :)

    Japan because of the reasons above, and because it's an Island. :)

    China is probably my first choice though. A guy I know lived there for a year (not the same guy) and said it was great. Much more open than you'd think.

    Also, China is soon to be the no.1 economy on the planet, its just a matter of time, so can't be the worst thing in the world, learning chinese (mandarin) i mean. Also, it seems like a cool country with cool people. Although, thats just my imagination :)


    Oh, can I ask why? Why only these countries and is it for studying or work?

  4. Our school have connections in Dubai yes. They actually have a lot of connections I've been told, but popular countries are hard to get into. Like, if they have 2 openings in Australia, which is a very popular country to study in, at least in Norway, and like... lets say 20 apply... well, do the math :)

    But, we can choose wherever we want to study outside of school, it's really no difference. The only thing is that it's your own responsebility, and not the university's.

    It's not really an issue for me what kind of language it is, although, of course, I would prefer English. At least a country that has English in their education so the general public can speak somewhat understandable English.

    Why Finland? Isn't it a little bit too similar to Norway? Like, I was thinking... not Sweden, not Denmark, not Iceland (for a lot of reasons =p) and not Finland. Never been there though, just generalizing here :)

  5. Wow, would take forever to read all that.

    I did read most of the first post however, and though I don't like the seperate pop idea, i did like the charge idea. As long as its made automaticly (or optional to make it automatic). Could do it like Battle for Middle Earth, works really well. It is .. overpowered though :) So be careful ... :P

  6. Well, next fall I kind of have to study abroad.

    Does anyone have any good ideas or experiences they want to share?

    I've thought about London, but thats basicly because I want to watch Tottenham football matches every other weekend, or the US. Of course. But where in the US?

    My school encourages us to go to Dubai, don't really know why but I don't want that huge cultural difference, and England, the US, France, Germany and pretty much every country in Europe, and USA and Canada is similar to Norway.

  7. Well, after the replies at the 0ad thread I got this great idea to get to know people even better :)

    The topic name itself should give you a hint, but ill start.

    The last few years I've been living in Stavanger in southwestern Norway. (Luckily far from Oslo these days ...) 3 years ago I lived in Arendal which is a pretty small town (40k) south in Norway, but for the last two it's been Stavanger. I lived in a house in Arendal, with 2 friends, and in Stavanger last year I lived with a friend of mine. We both went to school, but he dropped at due to his commitments on FIFA 11. (FIFA Soccer 11 for our American friends :P).

    At the moment my living situation is kind of wierd. I live in a cabin 15 minutes (boattrip) from Stavanger city. The cabin is all new and modern, but it is hard considering there is too few boats leaving nighttime. And as a student, thats when I want to go home (after school its usually alcohol time).

    However, it's very peaceful and a lot of work gets done, though FIFA keeps interupting me. As it did my friend.

    So people, how is your living situation? And how was a year or two years ago? Be free to share your current life situation also, but no pressure :)

    G'day mate ^^

  8. Thanks for great replies.

    I'm currently living at my cabin, so fast internet is a big problem (It's on an Island). Therefor multiplayer online can be a problem. Its like 1 mbit download, 400 kb upload :\ OH, but when there is good weather, its like 3 mbit down and 1 mbit up. Just wait for the sun, then start playing I guess.

    Well ok then, downloading. Yes I am on Windows. :)

    I'm usually not good either, so if the AI is bad thats probably a good thing. At least for now :)

    Thanks again for all replies, always helpful :)


  9. Hihi. Hello.

    So basicly I just need a few question answered :)

    First of all, and YES, I have been looking around the forums and the 0ad webpage for answers, how playable is the alpha 7? I dont know -anything- about coding or similar stuff, so I can't play unless there are a main menu and an install step-by-step document (or just an easy installer, would be even better).

    Is there AI in there somewhere?

    I have picked up that alpha 7 (along with alphas in general) are just for testing and "checking out what it CAN be", rather than what it is right now.

    Also, and I KNOW people can't seem to get that you need your time and all that, but... do you know anything about a beta release?

    I am however, really looking forward to check it out. Been a long wait since I first joined and things are (from an outsiders perspective) finally looking to move fast-forward :) You guys are doing an incredible job!

    hugs from your old pal :)

  10. Hey

    I would recommend, that is if you like "old" and OLD games:

    - Battle for middle earth (1, didnt like no. 2)

    - AoK, AoE (daha)

    - Empires: Dawn of the modern world (epic!)

    - Settlers 3 (for some reason, no. 3 is the only one I really like, its old though)

    - C and C Generals (Modern game, not bows and swords)

    - Warcraft 3 (agree with this one person above, custom games are fun)

    - Empire Earth (no. 1, they destroyed the fun-ness in the other 2)

    And for some reason, people started giving you turn-based games, and if you do like them:

    Lord of the realms 2 (I know its old, I know the graphics are bad, but it is so awesome I can't help but recommend it to you)


  11. WOW, finally a fellow Empires DOTMW fan. I simply love that game. I used to play it all the time. Amazing! And would really love some form of patch or addon to it, but as you say, pretty hard without the code. And the studio is gone right? :(

    Anyways, welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here. :)
