Welcome back to another Fantasy Friday! Today we will be straying from our themed showcases to present you with a wide array of screenshots taken by our Executive Producer, Konstantin Fomenko, to show off our latest build - the build that many of you will be playing shortly! The build is finished and after a short period of QA, we will be able to send out the first beta. Expect to hear more news on this as well as a launch date next week. :)

I won't be providing commentary for each screenshot as they're all stuff we've discussed previously and they're pretty easy to look at and figure out what's going on, but, if you have any questions about one of these shots, feel free to post it and I'll fill you in. These shots feature the latest graphics, level designs, building GUIs, World Map structure, market implementation, and unit interaction in the MMORTS and Skirmish modes. Enjoy!

Unfortunately with A-levels coming up most of my time will be spent revising, followed by preparation for my month-long adventure in Kenya.

I resized them all for slower connections, but the first shot deserves to be seen at original size. ;)

That shot also has the only visible glitch i can see... A floating crossbowman, just off the right tower... but man does they look amazing, especially that first one... And i quite liked the pic of seeing the mercenary master :) :p

These screenshots are just breathtakingly awesome, they just really look awesome and get me so excited for the game. I can't wait to get the beta now, knowing that it's oh so near, and seeing the awesomeness of the game now.

The game just looks so awesome and I am really really looking forward to playing it.:D

All of those screenshots look absolutely amazing! I've been looking at this game for several years now but only decided to register today. You guys really deserve some praise for all the handwork put into this game. I have seen some FANTASTIC eye candy. Very well done!

Wow thoose look great. Are thoose with all settings at maximum or are thoose what we can expect on a adverage system?

Also What are the chances of any new videos being released in the near future? (maybe next weeks media?)

And with regard to the units how many can we expect to have on screen at one time?

Alex Walz

Thanks for the responses! :D

I believe it's an Old English spelling. :)

Are thoose with all settings at maximum or are thoose what we can expect on a adverage system?
Everything's at max, but it doesn't differ by much.

Also What are the chances of any new videos being released in the near future? (maybe next weeks media?)
Slim. But we are working on a new trailer. :) Now that this build is finished, Kon will finally have some time to work with Danny on vids (an unavoidable disadvantage when working with a small team).

And with regard to the units how many can we expect to have on screen at one time?
Hmm, can't really answer that. It depends on what mode you're playing, where you're at, what stage of the game you're in, what you're doing, and what zoom and pitch you're using. None of these screenshots were staged, so you can expect similar battles, but there will also be smaller skirmishes with more micromanagement. We have it set that you can zoom out pretty far, and we'll most likely leave the configuration file unlocked if a player wants to edit it to zoom out even further.

So, to rephrase the question, On a current system, in the North Americas, on a broadband connection,megaton is the maximum amount of units can we approximately expect to see in a battle situation without going below 25 fps?

I want something like in the 17th picture! That bridge over to the castle THATS WHAT I WANT! a narrow path where i just put spearmen in the middle and let the archers kill all beyond:D

04-04-2010, 11:30 AM
Archers? Nah I'm going with huge catapaults or rock throwing ogres or something to that effect.

What about suicidal maniacs with gunpowder filled kegs on their backs shot with immeasurably huge catapults loaded by ogres? That would make it fun:D

Yeah I think i'll swap rocks for gunpowder kegs with lit fuses. Just seeing the explosions and flying carcasses should be very satisfying.

catapults..archers...pfft. Wait til you see my goblin launchers!

Like that can compare to my CHURCH LAUNCHERS, the church launcher is complete with people begging to god to save them from their sins. It got a priest and a giant cross, on this cross there is also a living person and 4 inch nails impaled through his hands and feet. There is also a bell that will ring for the last time on its way to the target and if by any chance there are enemies that survived then they will all be sent to heaven pardoned of their sins. That means they won't bother you anymore:D "if by any chance there is no church available then a mosque or a temple is also allowed however that is ONLY in emergencies"

Yeah they look good but i think there are a few more glitches in that photo alone, take a look at my edits.

I love the detail this game has. The graphics are a bit outdated, yet all the stuff that's happening on screen sooo makes up for it.
Good job guys, keep it up :)

Most of your highlighted areas are simply clipping erorrs, hopefully that can be cleaned up, but if not im pretty sure it will be easily overlooked... Most games have clipping issues and many worse than those... And besides in game we wont be so critical as movement will stop us seeing many of these clipping issues or simply hold our attention

Darathor
04-07-2010, 03:53 PM
Yeah, those are minor problems that will most likely be fixed in beta at some point. You can only really notice one that would grab someones attention while playing the game without being really zoomed in.

Patience.

I'm just taking a short break for food so figured I'd post in the forums and see how things are going with the fans, but other than that, we're all working quite a bit to get the game ready for beta and some other important things.

That would be telling now wouldn't it ;) I'm merely here to keep in touch with the fans, I'm just a code monkey heh. Important stuff like that is left to the great bunch of guys working in PR, I'm sure they'll fill everyone in on stuff when it's appropriate.
