The Greeks
« on: 30 May 2019, 20:42:42 »
I started working on a Greeks faction. It's mostly derived from vbros_2 techtree created by Eliminator.

The priest and the chicken farm models are from the Egypt Remaster

The Trojan Horse model was created by Keith Sammut (Earth Breach)

Download: greeks_A1.7z

The repo is at https://github.com/zetaglest/greeks-testing

Pretty cool Andy  :thumbup: It looks well crafted! I will give it a try when I got time  :angel:

Are you going to stick to some historical realism or more fantasy?
I translated Megaglest in italian and i keep the translation updated.

i guess the trojan horse and the ball guys tell its not really realistic :D

btw i got to test it with you, and it was like the old, but its really re-mastered :D
i really like the new form of it. except that chickens are loud....

@Pizza, thanks. It'll be about as "real" as the megapack factions. :) Won't change much at this point except for fine-tuning hopefully.

@Elvas, the "ball guy" is Atlas... condemned to carry the heavens on his shoulders. So.. the ball basically represents the sky.

I'm glad you like the new form, thanks for the feedback and for helping us test.

I'm sorry you find the chickens too loud. They are the same chickens and sounds used with the Egypt faction, I think. I bet it's something about the pitch that your noticing. I haven't heard anybody mention that its bothersome before. If you think it's something that needs changing, you could open a ticket on the repo so the volume levels can get adjusted in all the chicken audio files.

For this version, we've imported and adapted a few models from 0 A.D.

A9 will be the next release.

This is what things look like now: demo video

One new feature is that chickens can morph into larger chickens, and therefore provide more food (which means having to make fewer chickens).

The wild sow from the Norse faction has been added.

Atlas can be produced by priests.

Most units can heal faster when standing near a priest. A single priest provides +5 regen, and 5 priests gives +25. You can "radius-heal" allied units as well, by manually healing a unit that's near allied units.

Units standing near a temple get +3 regen points.

It's been a long time since I came here to the forums; I was busy with life since I last came a few years back, checking the forums once in a while.

Do you need help with creating or fixing the unit icons? The 0 A.D. images make the gameplay almost like the game.

I suggest changing the name of the "Civic Center" to "Agora" since that's the name used in the Hellenic factions. Saves a little bit of bytes. Any others?
Thanks!  ;)

Yes, Carl, thanks for the offer. The icons and the priest need work.

A reasonable suggestion, but then it would make sense to change the names for all the other units as well. Not impossible, but I don't see it as really worth it, and I think would be difficult for translators (if the techtree was ever translated in the future).
