Looks very cool!!!!!!
Nice dock.
Are that the good old FISHING SHIPS?
We haven't seen them before heh?
It looks so you cannot build a dock anywhere near the water.
The fish near the rocks looks also very good (of course).


IMPORTANT NOTE

There are 2 different docks. Maybe a fish dock and an "other dock"?

Very nice SS, like always Archangel!!!

Maybe the lighthouse gives you big LOS like in EE.

Maybe there are unique cultural buildings!

Whooooooops. I made a little mistake.
The lighthouse isn't a dock!!!
But it seems the fishing ship is going to the lighthouse

It's like watching a flock of clown-like apes trying to navigate a ship, even though the ship has in fact been stranded on some kind of reef for about 7 years and none of the apes have noticed it yet. -Drahnier on OD moderation.

The farms have new art...doesn't look like they'll be waving in the wind now eh?

Perhaps the lighthouse produces units? Warships?

Maybe it gives you a special ability for boats?
(talking about the lighthouse)

Why do the farms and the villagers look...so bad? Am I witnessing a degeneration of graphics?

i din't like the greek farm art either...
nice textures...

maybe the lighhouse is for transport, merchant and fishing ships and the other dock thing is for war ships...

People are talking about two camera views with this SS. I only see one. Am I missing something?

LongBow, scroll all the way down on the screen shot page and at the bottom it says "Bonus extra camera angle". Click there.

I dislike these farms, they look like they were painted onto the ground, not like plants are growing out of them.

Maybe you have to wait for the plants to grow up. These could be farms that were planted recently.

Or maybe they are just farming tubers

The farms look kinda realistic, considering that they didn't use advanced farming techniques those days... at least they're more realistic than those corn farms in the early screenshots .
Maybe the Egyptians have different farms than the Greeks (wheat is the crop that appears in most Egyptian paintings...).

On the other hand, they kinda remind me the farms after the locust attack .

The structures look cool, I guess they're 4th age structures. The fish look cool also .

The lighthouse looks neat, I bet it looks even better at night . Notice how part of the lighthouse and the docks are under the water.

I had noticed that too... I wonder if waves will break onto buildings. Man that'd be sweet.

AHHHHHHHH THE BOATS ARE TINY!!! not again... speaking that one greek villager is the size of the fishing boat...atleast make it where two greek villagers are the size of the boats.

and the farms suck. atleast make them 3D farms...but hey! i can live with 2D farms if it brings the system req. down.


At my signal unleash HELL.

well tell me if im wrong, but those arent what the farms look like. they are exhausted, or they have been eaten by locust, they probably do sway in the wind, when they are alive!!

Thats why the villagers are just standing there... nothing to do!!

Sorry to correct anyone, but thats what I think is happening... and oh, the lighthouse!!

I think it's the first time I'm content with the Greek architecture in AoM. Only the granary looks too "metalic".

We've seen it before in many screenshots, ES resized the boats so one boat won't fill the entire river.

Those female villies look muscular, probably all that woodcutting has an effect .

I guess they started optimizing the game. If it's that, then the graphics will get less good as time goes(well, not less good but less polygons etc...) to allow the game to run on most comps.

A normal process sadly

I like the Greek art better now. I agree with those that say it seems the farms are exhausted. The villagers seem a bit like giants but I don't want extremely small either. I think ES knows what is best when it comes to size of its art.

All and all, it looks grand.

I like all in the shots, all about the different angel, but I don't like those famrms, I'd prefer AOK's farms to those here.

The vills are dumb also.

The ships are a lot too tiny.

But the rest is more than ok.

The screenshots are amazing! Good job ES . Maybe the lighthouse allows you to see more of the ocean, just like in EE. That would be cool, especially at night if the light from the lighthouse was scanning the ocean!

(I wasn't active for a few weeks but i've got a new comp now )

The screenies look great! The boats are even smaller than in AoK... ... not good.

Anyway, the buildings seem far more detailed than older GReek screenies - maybe they aren't, but at least it looks cooler


Ohmigod, fancy colour fading!
I blame these purple things.
