Good point. In MoM, one could press escape to go back a step.

That's definitely not the style of the original MoM. Still an interesting approach, and it increases the usefulness of scouting as an ability. I can see why you'd be concerned about sending too much information to the client. This also brings up concern for how the edges of tiles themselves are blen...

I can safely say that's impressive. it seems like v1.0 might only be a half year out at this rate.

Java has it's problems. Poor support for graphics is one of them. That's why I'm only planning to port to the server to Java, which has no graphics at all. If there's ever a viable graphics library in Java then I'd port the client to it as well (don't care about using the existing code, by "port it...

Re: Bug in Building List

I don't know if it was already reported, but it seems that I stumbled upon a bug that prevents me from building a sawmill. I've played with both humans and trolls, and as I recall, these two races actually can construct that building. I could be wrong... Sawmills require that the city be within 2 s...

Java has it's problems. Poor support for graphics is one of them. AFAIK there are OpenGL classes for Java and a Java Quake implementation using these classes. This should be enough graphics support for a MoM client. Personally I also like C# more than Java, because I also come from Delphi and C# ha...

Java has it's problems. Poor support for graphics is one of them. If you want support for existing graphics code with an eclipselike IDE and a java-like language, I couldn't recomend anything more than C# and Sharpdevelop. Getting functional managed directX code into play(assuming you have a backgro...

The irony of chaos magic is that it works best when you play an excedingly defensive game, where you try to keep a large ammount of mana crystals around, get big cities, and use your combat spells as a strong first strike in defensive combat to take out your enemy's ranged/ability-heavy unit. This a...

Copyright wouldn't be a problem if Ubisoft would actually do something with all those rights they aquired.

However, to my knowledge, the ESA is actually treating MoM like abandonware and not worrying about it(whereas for titles like warcraft they lock it down whereever they see it)

I hate to waste your time with information that doesn't contribute to MoMIME, but the reason these are made is so that google will index their user ids via the memberlist, and the memberlist will link to their pages increasing their google pagerank.

OMG, all these years people have being trying to make a MOM 2, and they never succeeded, the closest was AOW (too few spells and unimportant wizard abilities) and Dominions (no tactical combat), but you have probably come as close as anyone.... I have this nagging fear that this one will die in the...

No, what you say is true for cities only. Lairs taken out by someone else dont disappear until you send someone there to actually see it. stop lying to the man. One can see terrain changes immediatly. It even plays the raise volcano and corruption animations on squares you can't see. Other alterati...
