Ensemble Studios already knew they will screw it a lot if they didn't do medieval age. They know what a failure was AoE 3 era, not the gameplay, not the design, The Era. They could start from there a

Spellforce III wins hands down. It's not a "dark filter" or an "HBO filter", it's realistic lighting. It's the lighting that I strive for in my screenshots that all of you upvote. Now, the Cossacks 3

As far as art direction goes I’m happy with it buildings are whitewashed like they should have been, and colors are vibrant like they ought to be, sick of historical things having all the color sucked

I expected that and not a touch marvel/Disney with warm colors and over saturation of color player.

The size of some weapons is disgusting to my taste, removes immersion.

I don't like the wall, I still don't know why. The other buildings have no unity with the rest is more city builder or stronghold style.

Many small details remember stronghold.

The lighting is really good on that screenshot. Very natural looking. Their textures are also very detailed and naturalistic. Definitely not too dark. Definitely good for inspiration for 0AD.

Genie engine definitely saw upgrades. Good UI, excellent renderer. They took a while, but it probably met the mark.

A warm color scheme is a good thing. There is a reason why movies with billion dollar budgets went for it. People like those. Its easier on the eyes and the majority, consciously or not, find it more aesthetically pleasing. Same reason why most find paintings of an autumn landscape more pleasing than a winter one (at least from what I observed, or rather what my friend who is an artist has observed).

“One of the pillars of the Age games has always been ‘a bright, inviting world,’” (Adam Isgreen)
... by trebucheting the other players' walls and then sending your troops to ransack what's left.

The reason "Modders will put blood in anyway" seems a little bit off to me. I don't know what they were really thinking.

In 21 seconds you can see some gameplay stuff, like minimap, interface, etc ...

There is some impressive stuff there, but I have a bad feeling about this. Looks a little generic. And the building designs don't look consistent or coherent together as an architectural set. Has a very AOE3 feel to me, just set in the Renaissance.

The architecture is a bit interesting.  The church looks in the style of Norman architecture.  The odd parts are the thatched roof houses, which look like they come from the ninth century instead; another strange thing is the use of red bricks with some structures.  It's like Keble College built hundreds of years earlier.

Some 0 a.d & mods mechanics in age of empires 4.

- Collect food with cavalry/scout

- Mongolian pack/unpack buildings

- Towers seem to shoot arrows according to the number of soldiers garrisoned.

- Can garrison units in ram and siege towers.

Also units are on the walls.

The arrows and projectiles looks strangely cartoonish.

They definitely have that kind of feel, especially when it comes to the impact with units; that said, there are two things I appreciate about that design: they are easy to make out and they lack the weird trails seen in most Total War games.

I agree that lack of trails is a good thing. Also that the extreme ballistic arcs are easy to see. But... I think it's a bit much. They could reduce the arcing by about 25% and it would look better. The fact that the arrows are white also contributes to the readability. 0 a.d. should look into re-texturing the arrows and javelins with this in mind (they are currently quite dark) and look into the gravity settings for projectiles in DE. Not at crazy as AOE's, but DE's projectiles do arc higher and longer than base game's do for visibility.

1. That Scout cav bringing back the entire deer carcass is pretty darn cool. 

2. I like the dead/depleted berry bush.

3. I love the gold "veins" on the mines.

4. Cliffs and mountain tops are pretty awesome. 

5. The grass actors are very nice.

6. The farm fields changing colors is something I've wanted for 0 A.D.

It looks all a little too cartoonish for me. I don't have a good feeling about the game, but maybe it turns out to be a great game. 

My guess is that it will not surpass AoE2 as a game.
