Yes I know about this tools. They show ship area.  but it is not precise in the question which ship type can pass on shallow water and which not.

I think it's the same depth for all ships. What matter then is the width of the passage. You can also run the simulation in atlas and find out :)

Release process takes a day (About 15hours) it takes months to get all linuxes up to date. Some are still in A22-A23

We don't have a stable team of balancers (or anything really) so making roadmaps is impossible because there might be nobody to work or fix things tomorrow.

I disagree entirely.

Respecting roadmaps may be impossible for the reasons you've stated but making roadmaps certainly is not.

Joke aside, a roadmap that is "more what you'd call a guideline than actual rules" is still actually useful as it gives, well, guidelines about what is expected at a specific release or what can/should be postponed.

What's the point of a roadmap that won't be followed because it cannot be enforced?

Love that quote. That being said the goal is not to give people expectations and then disappoint them...

Since the Spartans don't have a stone wall but only a wooden one, could you make it more visually unique? There is another option - to give the Spartans a stone wall, but thin and weak like a wooden one.

This looks extremely dismal:

But it looks like Sparta had stone walls...

Can we have the indicator back that a ship is being repaired?

There was a hammer symbol together with how many people worked on it. With ships being dumb and coastlines being difficult it didn't always work, so I'd prefer if I could see at first glance if works.

Edit: It shows when the ship is empty; can we have that it shows regardless?

I bet that this was already discussed in the past, but what about having scrollable/rewindable replays?

Like having a scroll-bar that represents the time in a game, and the user can set an arbitrary position where to start the replay?

This would be very helpful particularly in large maps/multiplayer where many things happen at the same time and it is difficult to track everything at later stage of the game without restarting the complete replay.

I understand that this might be challenging giving how are done and saved in 0AD (an initial state + a simulation that propagates such state) though.

 

EDIT: see this Starcraft 2 replay for example:

On the right ~middle there is a scrollbar that can be dragged to move the game at an arbitrary time. When the replay is unpaused it just moves forward.

Would require a major rewrite of the whole engine as repays ATM are just a text list of commands from each client replayed though the engine start to finish otherwise OOS errors are introduced.

Enjoy the Choice :) 

Mmm, does it require rewriting the entire engine @Loki1950? What about generating on-the-fly state checkpoints at regular time intervals, like 10-30s, during a replay using a 'regular' simulation (might be done in the main or a separate delayless offscreen thread)? Since a player/observer can reconnect to a multiplayer game after it started, there should already be a way to serialize and deserialize the entire game state and start a new simulation from that state. Couldn't the same approach be used to load an arbitrary game state and implement this feature?

 

Probably this approach wouldn't be the best in terms of user waiting time when scrolling to another checkpoint. Still IMHO way better than the actual situation where you have to close/restart/run the replay until the ROI manually every time you have to 'look in the past'.

In the random map Frontier, you can choose team placement:

Could this be done for mainland and some other random maps?

I think it would be great!

+1

There are a lot of maps I don't like to place solely because of placement. This could really help address

yes It is possible I have done that in my buggy mod "Mainland Twilight", right now there are some bugs in the frontier like team placement,  https://github.com/Haroldgomez777/0ad-maximalists-map
will fix it when I am free and let everyone know about it.
