    Thats just great. Thanks a lot Aeon! :p
    Oh what do I care, I won't be able to play this because I won't be near my desktop for a while. :cry:

    I just read the latest sucession teaser game (a Perpentach game, woohoo!) and some of the unique Belseraphs buildings sound freaking hilarious. I was just curious what effects things like Freak Shows and People Pens had?

    That's fine. I'll probably be home some time later but with a bit of luck the initial download frenzy will be over and the links will be pretty much usable ;)

    I'll ask again... Is there going to be 1kb music version? Not necessarily this release, but is it planned?

    And the races planned for later stages - will they appear in the recent version and be remade later on or won't they be here?

    And why do elves have three leaders while some of the others have only one?

    Not that I'll stop bugging you but I've just realised I'm pretty inquisitive lately.

    Cheers

    I'll remove them and see hwo much difference it make in the download size (the files actually get compressed twice when they are packed) if there is a significant difference I may most a non-music version.

    No plans for other races except for an idea Chalid has bouncing around in his crazy head, but I dont know when or if that will implemented.

    Hmm.. I dont know. Im not a fan of patterns so I have no desire to make every civ have a matching number of leaders or anything like that. I just added leaders where i thought they were needed. I guess for the elves I wanted an arcane, spiritual and military leader so you could play them in any of those forms.

    Music files don't compress - they already have very good compression. If there's alot of music (and it sounds like there might be), then I'm guessing the size will plummit.

    Does this mean you're going to make the forum public now?

    Freak Shows give great artist points and allow you make human, elven, dwarven and orcish slaves into the pen attractions (similiar to how animals are handled for the other civs). Because the Balseraphs can pen people and animals they have the most effective carnivals, and an amazing culture force if they fill one up.

    Yes. Given the amazing level of activity that's been in just one official thread so far, though, we shudder to think what you will do when faced with 30 threads:)

    Sticky the part about reading at work. That gets bosses off of your back. If they don't like it then they get rubbed down by Gary Coleman and fed to the Kraken. ;)

    I think the question was really.. those races/civs that show to be released in Shadow/Fire/Etc( Light is your initial release right?)... will they be in the initial Beta in some form, or not at all until those later releases?


    Cheers!

    Ahh. They are in as non-human playable. They haven't had much done with them so they play much like a FfH1 civ, but we didn't see any reason not to include them.

    I meant the Illians, for example, who appeared in a succession game but are supposed to be introduced during the Ice phase. And I demand a merchant civ :p They could concentrate on the money making aspect of the Runes and always playing it safe, trying to support whoever seems to be most worth supporting (in terms of their profits, of course). Heh, just an idea, though I don't think it suits your vision...

    While I understand the lack of need for making patterns I still think it may be limiting. Since the elves have the most leaders to choose from they will probably tend to be most versatile and be the most picked up race while others won't ever change and will act the same all the times... But honestly, I'm just not very fond of elves ;)
