Current Project State: Alive!

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

Hi together,

I recently received some posts and messages regarding the project state. Some of them even questioned if the project is still alive. (And yes, I know my long response times and rare postings led to this questions.)

Therefore I’m writing this post to say: This project is still alive! And it’s making some small progress. (As “proof” see the screenshots below.)

However, obviously the progress isn’t as fast as many of you and me would like it to be. This is caused by insufficient time resources on my side and especially on Michaels side, who mainly works on the UI.

During the last months, I was able to stabilize the game more and more, so that test players were able to play matches up to ten hours without the economy failing or other “game stopping” bugs appearing. This means the game logic is getting ready for a first open alpha phase on Linux, Mac and Windows (the performance on Android is not good enough yet). (And no, I don’t wanna name a release date yet!)

But just to be clear, the current game only contains the Romans and has not all of their buildings. For example there are no monks and ships. But the food production, mining, heavy industry as well as the soldier production are working. Multiplayer matches via Internet are also possible, but the UI lacks many features and isn’t kind of “ready”. We will work on this and I just got news from Michael, that he’ll also be able to work more on his part.

So much for now. Please excuse that I’m not that used to posting more often. I’ll try to inform you better and more often!

Best regards + much fun with the screenshots (about 12k Settlers were living in this game).

Andreas

    It would be nice if you can host an RSS feed/mailing list, so those of us who are VERY interested in the project be notified of any new messages 🙂

    And as most of the people before me, I’m interested in helping (after I also finish my thesis which is with Java/Android 😀 )

    Hi everyone,

    I know, I’ve not been updating the page regularly, but I want you to know, that it’s because I’m currently writing my bachelor thesis. When that’s finished to the mid of May, I will be able to focus and work more on the game again. And hopefully finally publish a first version.

    Best regards and thanks for your support!
    Andreas

    Will this be OpenSource? I bet a lot of people, including me, would help (a.k.a. providing code commits) if they had access to the code.

    Wie wärs, wenn ihr das mit dem Studieren einfach lasst (bzw. schnell zu Ende bringt) und einen Kickstarter macht?

    Damn, I would be really happy to test this game right now just to see how everything already works. This reminds me on those days when I was waiting for the first RttR “unstable something to show” release. Thats just great work at all, keep it up and I can’t wait being able to test it! 🙂 (Or create maps :>)
