 0AD - Free RTS in development
Known it for about 4 months, finally decided to post it...

So some normal guys are making it, just like with PR, except they're also doing their engine from scratch. Here's a link: http://wildfiregames.com/0ad/

Now that I think about it, I should post about PR on one of their boards...

It's not really a mod... it's a whole new game.

read the post, he said they created their own game engine. I think 1 of the advantages of using the war3 engine is to make sure the project doesn't get shut down.

looks like they ripped off Rome Total War units and icons, and put it in the AoE3 engine

anyways, still looks good, especially the concepts Smile

i hate RTS that take place in old times or past times. they are boring to me, i like either modern or futuristic such as starcraft! or a game with phenomonal graphics like warcraft 3.

Errr, I have this sneaking suspicion that OAD's graphics will be better than WcIII's, so that argument doesn't really fly. Wink

"Better" is very much to do with opinion, especially in the case of Warcraft (War3 and WoW). More detailed models isn't necessarily better. Warcraft graphics have a very distinct style and I think I rather prefer them over what I've seen from 0AD so far.

Personally I'm not very thrilled about the graphics of 0AD. They honestly look very post millenium to me. Granted, this is being done for free and from scratch however compared to things like Medieval Total War, this game lacks greatly.

0AD - Free RTS in development

0AD looks good, of that there is no question IMO.

But, from the looks of things, it seems like it may turn out to be overly complicated to understand, not to mention that some of the unit models may meld in too well with the environment (resulting in inefficiency when the player can't find or can't see some of his own units). In that regard, Wc3 holds up better, due to the simple looking graphics.

Of course, that's just pure speculation derived from one of the screenies, and I'm sure it won't be the case with every unit model.
