yeah! i saw that, thats why i changed the build time of all trees to 1.
@mictes i changed the order of the commands 1st the stop 2nd move 3rd harvest 4th plant 5th build 6th attack 7th repair. you also can change the order of the buildings you want to build.

bad news, as soon as i lower the starting resources and put restrictions for units and buildings the ai stops doing anything other create more elves and do nothing, and when i remove restrictions but lower the starting resources the harvest. i'll try to fix it if i can't then i'll release 0.6 and let one you try it.

The screenshots look great, but you might want to remake the texture of the town center(or the whole thing), because it looks sorta bland.

I wanted to try it, but it doesn't work (for me) whats wrong?
I simply get
Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)

Is this mod only for GAE?

I just tried your faction and I think its very good. I tried it in GAE 0.2.10 and it works without any problems.
I'd like to post my constructive criticisms for your faction.

+ Excellent faction music loop.
+ Tree based buildings are great! especially the growing tree and the wood guard.
+ magol hedir looks good.
+ Tech tree is not too big or complex like some other faction mods
+ Unit models and textures are generally good.
/ 2d icons are well made but are hard to differentiate because they are all green.
/ Ents are not implemented yet :(
- The resource system doesn't seem to work very well.
- Faction is massively unbalanced atm. (this covers alot of different problems)
- Forge building seems unnecessary to house a single upgrade.
- Non-tree building textures need improvement.
- Griffon texture needs improvement.

Thats all I can think of right now.

ok, now it works for me too!
I installed it again and now its working. I don't know what was wrong.

And its really a nice new faction!!!
Lots of good new model.
Some are a bit too big for my opinion and some build up much too fast (trees).
The buttons look really good, but it's a bit difficult to devide them.

One hint for the animations. You should export one frame less. If the start and the end frame looks the same, skip the end frame. Otherwise you get these stocking animations.
Another problem I see is that the cpu will always have trouble with the sing ressource. Probably its better to replace it with something like housing, something like  every units needs a tree( or a part of a tree ) to live. But probably I'm wrong and you get the things working.

I think there are still a lot of things to do, but I'm very curious what it looks like when it is in the final version!

thanks for the complements, comments and tips.
actually most of my walk animations have one frame less, but thanks anyway.
as for the buildings, i'm still at designing some smaller ones hopefully in my next release they'll be smaller,for sing i think i'll change it back to food.
i'm still working on perfecting the trees so... well whatever.

i didn't see this before, i'm sorry.
resource - for sing, i'm going to change it to grace for that, i'm gonna have to add another building, the Elven Sanctuary.
unbalanced - ATM
Forge - i'm gonna remove a the elven taming lore upgrade, so i'll add two more upgrades for the forge.
Texture - i'll see to it, btw by buildings which ones do you mean.
Gryphon - My bro said the same thing he said it looked like a dog, so i'm going to totally re-model the gryphon(even though i spent four days, animating it).

okay, 0.8 is set to release sometime in the second week next month, it won't have any new sounds, but many new models and retextures and of course a few units: the Ent, Minstrel, Wise Elf, Huorn and two new upgrades.

Wow, it is looking good. Nice ent model. I'll download it on my school computer later, this is just too huge for dial-up. (Boy, am I glad military will probably be about 1 MB per unit uncompressed, much smaller).

Oh, and it IS nice to see Zaggy back.

I will implement the Ent model in the next version of Dark Magic BTW.  I will retexture it, but the real goal is to have a different model, and actually, it will look completely different.  This one is like a live tree; the Treant in Dark Magic is a dead one.

okay so i modeled the gryphon, i want to know if the texture is good enough, because i want to start the gryphon rider and i don't want to do all that work if the texture is not good. so here it is:

Sorry, my hands are a bit tied at the moment!
So will you do it when your hands are free?
I don't want sounds till the final release.
