In reference to this thread, I have decided to CANCEL this project as it will require too much effort for very little reward. I did plan to create a bug fix and balance patch for AoE and RoR, however I do not feel the huge amount of effort for 10-20 people was justified.

I will carry the concept forward into my Age of Heroes expansion. This has NOT been cancelled. Details will be covered in its own thread.

However, before I do continue with the expansion, I will be writing a set of mod tools. They should be relatively quick to produce, and will serve the following purpose:

- Speed up development time for AoH
- Open up new possibilities for AoH
- Improve my coding skills
- Revive AoE/RoR mod community (yes, these tools will be released via the Granary)

Again, the details will be covered in their own thread. Note that the tools WILL NOT BE OPEN SOURCE.

Let me know your thoughts.

Rasteve!!!, where have you been. we thought you were gone or dead or something else. Good to see you back. Maybe we can cooperate in our modding projects (look at age of italy thread). After screening through a few of your threads, I noticed we had quite a few ideas in common.

It's good to see you Rasteve, people have missed watching the progress of your project, but as you can see we have some more advanced stuff going on here now...

I have been working pretty much flat out for the last 8 months.

I wouldn't mind helping out, although I am not able to put the hours in as I done in late 2009. I just had a quick scan of your project and it seems you need graphics (something I was also lacking in my projects). I will take a deeper look at your project and post there.

New tricks hey? I need to catch up.


Where to go

I have been away from AoE for some time, but I still want to get the RasPatch project completed. It has been bugging me for a while but I just haven't had the time to get into it. Over the coming week I plan to review where I managed to get to and see how I can get this completed ASAP! As far as I can remember I was about to make a number of unit fixes. I have a bunch of new building tilesets somewhere too. I will have to get these in for some feedback.

The WarPatch project will probably still be achievable.

However, the Age of Heroes will be slow going, and maybe still on hold until the RasPatch is done. I just don't have the time like I did previously to hit this full steam!

I am building a portfolio of projects and these would fit in nicely. In terms of AoE mods, this is where I will draw the line.

I am interested in writing some tools (such as TDA's AI project idea - if this is still open). I have worked a lot with XML files and C# so this would also fit in nicely with my portfolio.

Well well well well well.

Well.

Nothing much to say or speak

Rasteve is back but was he ever gone?

He must not forget his responsibilities for since he is no longer in the design competition perhaps he would consider being a judge so we may finally draw a close on that chapter?

Your returned presence is certainly appreciated. Welcome back or should Gumble say Back welcome?

Too many people say far too much about Gumble. They also claim Gumble says far too much which isnt true.

One man's truth is another man's lie. Seek TRUTH to escape this moral mire.

My AI project is still open but currently progressing due to my heavy workload. If you are interested I've started a blog for my projects which has a picture of part of the UML that I'm thinking of using at this point. I also need to see if we can pull some sort of staff meeting sometime soon. Now if only I could hunt down Nacht.

@Gumble - I need to clear some of my workload down then I will see what I can do.

@TDA - are you sticking with Java? I would recommend C# - it is excellent!

@Suppy -



I have a few days off next week and fingers crossed I will try and churn something out.

At this point I'm going to be sticking with the Java platform. This is mainly due to the portability advantages however I haven't even thought of actually writing code for the project yet so if I get some time to install my free copy of Visual Studio and learn C# I'll be able to make a more educated choice then.

If you ever need help with C# I would be more than happy to help out.

Some really simple yet strong advantages:
- Properties (including auto get-set methods)
- Lambdas (removes the need for once-only private methods)
- LINQ (powerful XML/SQL/even object querying capabilities)

All you need is .NET 4.0 and VS Express 2010!


BTW - I have started remaking scenario_tc's editor in C# (several class libraries are done).

I think we could spend a long time discussing the advantages and disadvantages of the different platforms that could be used but unfortunately that would take as way off topic and probably confuse most of the people here.
