This member has provided no bio about themself...
It has been a long time since any of us posted on here. George has been busy with life and I have been working on another game with Nutshell Games.
We do hope to continue with this game as soon as we are both in the position to do so.
Many may not know this, I asked around 45 people to join our team about 90% wanted some form of monetary payment, I couldn't pay them so they didn't join, as I said it was only a part of the reason why.
Well, I think we both know that some of the team do need to learn things, that is why I have joined Feudal Studios to Senkouryu who have some people with some experience in this area and already have graphic artists and programmers.
That was George who keeps brining up the money, and we are only stopping while we get things sorted
I am not sure why money was brought into this post as we dont need any to make this game
We dont need Unity Pro and we dont need money
I am afraid you are wrong, we needed Unity pro and that costs £1000 and we needed to get a few assets (£400 altogether) and some people would not join us if we didn't pay them, so it just stagnated, sorry.
Well its not anything to do with money as anything can be achieve with little, its just while we reorgainse things and build a bigger team
We are going to be making a few smaller games for release in September 2011, any suggestions?
More information on this change is coming soon
We have the account back again
Yes, similar but not the same.
Ok, we had in total 4 nominees, 2 of which were good, the others not so good.

There is already a game called Feudalism :D
To let you all know, to offically be entered into the competition you have to email it to the email address provided.
This game is set in the 12th century Reniasance (Move from dark ages to the Feudal Ages)
As I said Ireland is very different to England and will be added in later (have it's own map)
I call dips on Shropshire.
What do you think of the new design? this or the Old one.
Ireland is very different to England, Scotland and wales as it is a Tribal state full of tribes.
Big update to the map, added in Realistic Regions, good bye Modern regions, hello old.
Yes, yes the colours will change, this isn't a pre-made template.
Note once game launches there will be many things on this site that isn't there now.
Mainly the template, we are getting a Designer for the actually nice bits of it.
Try to pronounce Cymraeg Saethwyr and Norrøn Axmen really fast, 5 times ;)
Yes, there will be a huge selection of helmets and armours to buy or make (Or scavange off the dead)
This is not the 'Grey' man that was shown a while back, we use makehuman to make the human model.
Indeed, you could join my faction (at the start of the game, the Devs and admins etc.. will make there own factions to get the ball rolling.)
They are, all depends on the Bolt head.
well, I am not sure a arrow can fly 5000KM, but this mantlet would offer protection people behind it, but the man pushing it is exposed somewhat.
Also note this is a simple, cheap two handed weapon so it will not be the biggest or best weapon, all have there weaknesses and strengths, this would be very good if you can keep the momentum on the weapon, if it stops for a split second a death blow could happen to your chest.
Your wish is my command.
thats the render
Could be, or a padded version.
Tower shields where in the age in one form or another, there was also the Pavise.
I see you will pay £5 off the bat then :D
These are for the Balista.
Thats the general Idea.
It will do, this is quite light considering.
Sorry for the lighting error.
do you notice the two wheels? you will use that to pull the string back, and then you would insert the bolt.
Bigger, because crossbows of those times where quite small.
This would be a very heavy to carry by yourself.
Yes, well, the spikey thing is a unsual item, it is a Spear AND club compination, thats all I will say till I show it.
You could store liquids in the barrel.
We are just trying something special, if it fails it will allow us to go back to unity.
Yes, more towers
Note, the Textures are placeholders.
Yes, but this is just the basic one you get when you build it, you can add that after building it.
Yes there will be variants yes, remember pretty much all Villages/small towns/encampments etc... will not have the resources or time to build a stone wall as a stone wall could take weeks to ship the stone in, dig the foundations and build it, while this would take a few days, also, there will be towers of sorts to enable light Artillery to be placed on the walls (Small balista for example) these would be nothing more than extensions to the walkway.
Also 'watchtowers' will be put in, these are towers (Made of wood for a Palisade, stone for a town/castle wall)that are not made for warfare (But can as you could fit around 8 men ontop) but for scouting, keeping a eye on who comes near the walls.
Yes, it may be a small stone wall, it will still take awhile till you can build it around the settlement
If you are wandering what the arrangements are, they are giving us the server for free with no cost but we must show a playable game first (Of course)
Looking good, can't wait to see this in action*
Try not to be too hard on 11 yearolds, as our game will pretty much make their blood boil HAHAHAHA.
Yes, if all goes to plan you would, make a huge open grave and then throw everyone in it.
Because it is both a spear and a javelin.
We will use a Meshdeformer/destructor on most/all meshes (Even landscape!) meaning you can destroy anything, the thing we are using is a secret (for now HAHAHAHA)
What do you mean weaponish :D
Wooden Club next,
You may do because we based it off many Historical References.
Also note we will create many 'tiled' textures/models to keep repetition to a minimal
Thanks, I see this model does impress people.
Would you accept working on a game development team?
No, Lev 0's are Testers might seem odd but they have there own area (meaning they can upload as well).
I know, we are really lucky to get these guys.
Fantastic, we should have a brand new Web design very soon (Our old one is not very good)
Same to you, don't forget to follow us!
I wish you well.
We have made huge progress in the last few days, we have worked very hard at getting this started.
