Hello,

I didn't see any topics about 0Ad and since it is an rts and not a city builder game there is no forum for it.   However there is a lot of potential with this game since it will have the option for full custom modding which is great.  

"0 A. D.  is a free, open-source, cross-platform real-time strategy game under development by Wildfire Games.  It is a historical war and economy game focusing on the years between 500 B. C.  and A. D.  500.   The game will be cross-platform, playable on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.   The game aims to be entirely free and open-source.   In addition, the developers do not get paid for their work, nor will they charge for their product.   The game has been in development since 2000, with actual work starting in 2003.   There is no official release date set for the finished version. "

0AD official site: http://wildfiregames.com/0ad/
0AD official forum: : www.wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?act=idx
0AD mods at Mod Database: : www.moddb.com/games/0-ad/
0AD on youtube: : www.wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=15271
0AD on Wikipedia: : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/0ad

0AD can be interpreted as a 3d remake of the first Age of Empires game, but more historically realistic.   After over 10 years of independent work the game is nearing completion.  

Probably the best feature of the game is the moddability as described on the official page: "WFG started out as a game modification team, and true to our heritage and the FOSS philosophy, we believe being able to tinker with a game contributes to lasting fun and learning.  Aspects of the game like game logic, artwork, and data can be tweaked with tools or by modifying XML and javascript files to totally change the game. "

So there is a potential for making city builder game mods with this game, as RandomEd discusses his ideas for a Caesar 3 mod in this forum thread here:

Ah yes, glad to see that this is still coming along nicely, I had great hopes for this game and it is looking fabulous from when I first came across it. Thanks for reminding me, am going to have to download it and see how much it has improved since I last played it.

Alo, CB, the graphics should be up to your standard. Sticking Tongue Out Definitely recommend you all (if you haven't already seen it before) check it out and tell us what you think.

So it's sort of like a free AoE 3, but based on historical events?  Would be cool.

Still has a very long way to go, found the fps to be a bit clunky, much more so than a previous version I played a year or so ago.
