Not at the moment, but it is very easy to set the enemy to "Unassigned" so that they don't have an AI, and you can then build to your heart's desire without worrying about being attacked.

Another thing you can do to "cheat" is to hit Alt+D to open the Developer's Console. In the Dev Console there are some options that will help you cheat against the AI, like promoting your units and lifting the Fog of War.

Absolutely! Alt-Enter puts the game into a 1024x768 window. The window is even resizeable and you can even maximize it. :)

Alpha 10. We'd like to get at least a wall system, technologies, and a few other things in place before we're comfortable with labeling the next release a "beta."

There are two main problems with performance right now: AI and Pathfinding. Both are opportunities for significant performance improvement, so we have top men on it as we speak. There will likely be noticeable improvement in Alpha 10. :)

> We will have "Phases" of settlement growth, similar to "ages" from Age of Empires. These will hopefully be enabled in Alpha 10 or Alpha 11.

> Windows and Mac players can indeed play via IP address. :)

Currently the units move in formation, but don't fight in formation. We plan/hope to make them fight in formation sometime this year. :)

Mythos_Ruler @ Temple of Vesta

This is in fact modeled after the Temple of Vesta, which sat at the South corner of the Roman Forum. It is known that the Vestal Virgins kept the fire burning inside this temple continuously, and it represented the beating heart of Rome.

Wikipedia:

"The sacred fire of Vesta was a holy fire in Ancient Rome. The Vestal Virgins, originally numbering two, later four and eventually six, were selected by lot and served for thirty years, tending the holy fire and performing other rituals connected to domestic life—among them were the ritual sweeping of the temple on June 15 and the preparation of foods for certain festivals. By analogy, they also tended the life and soul of the city and of the body politic through the sacred fire of Vesta, which was renewed every year on the Kalends of March.

The sacred fire burned in Vesta's circular temple, built in the Roman Forum below the Aventine Hill in pre-republican times. Among other sacred objects in the temple was the Palladium, a statue of Pallas Athena supposedly brought by Aeneas from Troy. The temple burned completely on at least four occasions and caught fire on two others. It was last rebuilt in 191 AD on the orders of Julia Domna, the wife of the emperor Septimius Severus, The rites of Vesta ended in 394 by order of Theodosius I. The fire was extinguished and the College of Vestal Virgins disbanded."

Nature is not "completely random" though, and neither are human beings. Human beings generally will not found a city in a disadvantageous spot.

I'm personally working on destruction dust/smoke. Someone else is working on pretty selection lines. Another is working on pathfinding optimization. Someone else is working on Trading. Others are finishing up the Roman buildings and ships. And still others are working on cool projectile and splash damage enhancements. :)

I think though it would be a groovy feature of Moddb if they included a Collada/3D viewer.

Yep, a rally point. It can be set upon resources since Alpha 8.

We can also make a few generic Egyptian "ruins" of temples and such to use on the East bank.

Not a bad idea. Perhaps some kind of Collada plugin that converts uploaded Collada files to a 3D presentation. The viewer could rotate the object at-will.
