He should first pull the leeches out of his caligulae (Roman sandals). :O
Yeah, that is the plan, that each Siege Weapon should have at least 1 or 2 guys firing and reloading it. Consequently, Siege Weapons will cost more population room.
Right. I'd say they'll be strong in the late game, while others will try to rush them early.
Such a nice looking engine and artwork for such limited gameplay.
Well, it's more of a passive ability... ;)
The Romans in part 1 will be the Republican Romans of the Punic Wars era. Strong infantry and siege weapons, but poor cavalry and average everything else (for game balance).
Female citizens can not fight, however they can build civilian structures and gather resources. They have an aura that boosts the productivity of the male citizen-soldiers as they labor nearby.
Building rotation is already in. It's as simple as click to place, then hold-drag to rotate.
As far as Min. Sys specs, we don't know yet, but I'll go ahead and make an educated guess:
- 2.0 GHz process or better
- Geforce 6 series and above / Radeon 9 series and above
- 1GB RAM
- 2GB Disk Space
1600 x 1200
An updated version of this screenshot can be seen here:
The blue dudes are Republican Romans.
The blue guys on the right are Macedonians while the dudes in olive and red are Carthaginians. Of course, the teal guys in the center are Spartans.
I want to say that the shield patterns of the Spartans are based on the latest research. Some people couldn't care less, but others appreciate such detail. :)
I suspect Robot Entertainment, one of the "Diadochi" of late Ensemble empire, are indeed working on an ancient themed game. It's just a hunch based on scant (photographic) evidence, but of course that evidence could have been part of a misinformation campaign. lol
People can also make some nice screenshots in the Atlas editor, plus run some battle simulations in Atlas as well. :)
I think if both players have the mod installed you can play a DirectIP game. I have not tried it though.
* Age of Empires II: Age of Kings.
* Age of Empires II: The Conquerors Expansion.
* Mod Pack Studio Lite 2.0 or greater.
Mod Pack Studio must be installed in order to run the RaW Mod Pack. You can download either:
* Mod Pack Studio Lite 2.0 (used only to install mods) - 1.96 MB
* Mod Pack Studio 2.0 (used to install and make mods) - 3.82 MB
Note: Both versions of MPS will install either version of RaW.
Sorry, you have to read the 'More' link on the download page.
