this engine is quite interesting, but the real drawbacks come in the fact that resources are quite limited, being that gold,stone,and trees all run out, although that said, it is still quite an excelent game and engine, though im only speaking of the game glest, but i have to test some modifications to the game, i will tell you the state and personaly ratings of the modifications later
