1. I think villagers should be able to sleep, eat, have breaks, die of age and fulfil their entertainment desire and not only gather resources. And each villager should think different. What I mean is: Villagers/warriors/sailors/guards should go on with their lives and they should have unique personalities? For instance: Henry Egyptian should think that the civilisation should think more of the economy than conquering. And Eric Norse should think that the civ should have more entertainment. And Ricky Greek sleeps more than he fights.
2. I said guards and sailors because in AoK there was no sailors in ships and no guards in towers, castles and fortifications and I think that would be cool.

This was some of the things I would like to see in AoM. I know the Unique Personality Generator is a little impossible but it could be cool anyway!

Welcome to the forums

I don't think the game will be playable if we'll mess with little things like letting the villies sleep.
And do you wanna lose a game just because your hero loves to sleep, while the other player's hero loves to fight?

The idea of making a good game is making it as fun as possible (while keeping the game's theme), but not making it as realistic as possible, if it takes the fun away.

I also think it should be like in the former AoE games 'cause it was perfect there and imagine an AoK game where your villies and soldiers wanna sleep etc. - annoying, eh?!

Looks as though you'll have sailors, that is, you'll be able to see what you garrison on ships. I don't know about seeing people on towers though, I think it'd look rather silly. Imagine fitting 5 units into the one square tower... not cool.

But one thing which wouldn't look silly or make the game less fun to play is that the aiege weapons should get .. soldiers who ... dunno the word, but I think you know what I mean!

I think that wouldn't make problems...

Making siege look good with soldiers manning it is a waste of time, imo. It looks fine without men, and I'd rather the ES artists busy themselves with other artwork.

forgive my sarcasm but...

Vladimir87- "Stupid vill! Quit playing cards and go get some wood! I need a navy come on get of your butt!"

Villager: "Shut up you idiot. I'm too lazy to get wood, or anything. Haham flush! Gimme that fish you gambled George. Well waht I was saying is if you wanna make a navy, you build your own raft! Go away!"

Vladimir87: "I'm warning you I am gonna use force. You do what I say, cuz I am the general. NOW GET WOOD!!! YOU BETTER CHOP IT FAST TOO!!"

Villager: "Shut up I'm tired. I am tired of working my tail off for your need of violence. Sign a treaty why don't ya. I got 50 food, roughly 1/2 of a deer, to be trained, and I haven't eaten in 4 days since! You only care about sending down the meteors don't ya! I never get anything, except a little stat at teh end of the game at how much stuff I collected. SHUT UP!"

Vladimir87- "You moron! The teams are locked, so I can't ally! And if you don't work for me, his minotaurs are gonna rip your tiny body apart like sticks. AND I DON'T GOT NO MORE GPS TO SEND AT HIM, I USED ALL 4 UP! I ahve o army, and he's about to smash me."

Villager: "Look at your rank. You are a stupid 1730. I think I am gonna desert and join outburst_elf! I'm tired of you overworking me! Hey Jimmy, let me on your fishing ship! We are leaving this dump!"

Vladimir87: "Do I have to remind you of something? *Brings in his galleys and surrounds the fishing ships*"


Villager: "*throws a hammer at the nearest one and laughs* You can't force fire on your own ships with galleys smart. Im the one getting the resources. I know those aren't seige ships, as we haven't mined any gold. See ya at your grave Vladimir87!"

Vladimir87- "Oh, do I have to remind you of something else? *clicks the vill who starts fervently apologizing* May theis be a lesson to you all! *clicks delete and laughs at the bloody mess ont the ship. Vill's friend put cards away and start mining. Before long though, they lose concentration and play tag in the woods. A platoon of calvary guts them all, and Vladimir87's economy is gone."

I don't really like your idea, my vills would eat the fod fromt the farms!

:P

Having sailors and guards would be very cool.

But what if you just lost a battle, and you need to double your work efforts and make some more troops, and all your peasants need to sleep? Hmm...dont think I would like that very much.

But having milita or something like in Kohan:Immortal Sovereigns, that would be sweet too. Your army is away fighting, and you get attacked by another Army, and *pop* your guards bust out of some towers/castle and defend the city.

Naw, that wouldn't be cool. You have to manage your army intelligently, if you only leave villies at home you deserve to get killed if the enemy attacks.

Well i think to make things seem more realistic for the units such as spearmen and swordsmen and archers to be different from each other, maybe different coloured skin, hair colour, height and so on.

ps how do you post a pic

maybe it would add realism to it if they were different sizes, taller and shorter, some skinnier, some fatter, and different skin tones and coulors, all of this would be generated randomly when you create the unit, go to .http://aom.heavengames.com/art/screenshots/e3-2001-film/showpix?pixurl=pix/e3-2001- 033-px.jpg

Ya if you wont vills to act like people feel free to buy the Sims .No wouldnt work its nice for a game to be realistic with features that go with the time period ie footprints the same defensive structures they used long ago but it wouldnt be any fun if your vills could go to sleep what if at the start of the game your vills go to sleep?and the enemies love to work your dead becasue of something you can not control.
