Fantasy Friday XXIV - Human Buildings
 


FANTASY FRIDAY XXIV
Human Buildings

Hope everyone's having an magnificent Friday. :) Sorry, this is a little late but there's a lot of info here, so hope you enjoy hearing about the human buildings. As a recap, human towns are focused around their Town Hall. Surrounding the Town Hall are distinct building plots that the player can use to build one of the buildings below. If a player runs out of plots, they can purchase additional ones from their Town Hall. In addition, men are the only race capable of building two layers of walls so enjoy having some pretty epic strongholds!

And if you missed it, be sure to also check out the Elven Buildings!

Please note that the costs are subject to change, and that we will likely add more upgrade options to many of these buildings in the next couple of months. We also won't be looking into Walls and Towers quite yet as, as mentioned before, we are working on revamping the wall construction system. Any buildings, units, and techs revolving around human sorcery have also been omitted from this showcase and will be revealed at a later time.

I love info like this. I just imagine playing the game and forget everything else in that land. Keep it up!

Henry Martin 04-30-2010 06:00 PM

Great. Can't wait to play the humans. Love getting these details about the game.

Alex Walz 04-30-2010 06:02 PM

I'm sorry the screenshots are a little dark... they didn't look so bad last night. :p

And if you're wondering why the house screenshot looks nothing like its icon, that's because there's several variations of the house building. Town houses are narrow and tall while village houses are one-storied and wide, like the one in the icon.

Don't seem to dark. You can see what the screenshot is and thats all that matters. Can't wait to test this game. Not many RTSs are coming that look interesting, but this one and of course StarCraft 2.

Research Bow Saw - 200 Food, 300 Wood
Economic Upgrade. Increases the wood gather rate of your peasants.

hehe... aanyway...

question: Why are knights cheaper then caveliers, and only slightly more expensive then trebuchets?

Alex Walz 04-30-2010 07:05 PM

Knights are pretty much unmounted Cavaliers with slightly better armor.

And siege is in a different category and can't be compared with other units. It may change, but as of now, the only mode where you can have a Siege Workshop and train siege weapons is in Lay Siege. You'll be getting most of your siege through the mercenary markets and perhaps one or two siege engines as rewards for quests.

Nice update. like the way you can breed different kinds of lifestock, which give different kinds of income.

I don't like the Barracks or Gateway. They seem like they take longer to burn down! They need more wood and straw parts!
