I thought this was an amazing video that touches on pretty much every point and thought that has gone into the game.It runs on a bit near the end but is still a great video.
Idk if the author is a member of this site,but very good job sir.
I actually forgot about a couple ideas that were mentioned i found interesting.
Rallying calls being one of those.A very interesting concept that does leave a permanent impression after the sort of event is complete.
The other nice idea one i really like was the talk about ORC's but could be any race and how they might migrate and take over an area if left untouched.
The whole Voxels idea has never impressed me because i like some plausible realism and immersion.What happens with voxels is basically instant terraforming,square chunks instantly removed from the earth and objects magically forming in mid air,none of that is what i want in my game.If we are using swords and daggers and ancient Fantasy i would expect to see a shovel being used,not these giant squares of land being chunked out.I would also want to see building materials,like logs and some way to transport those logs to where you need them,perhaps a horse and cart.
I just wonder if any of these ideas are still in the works or any new ideas.I have always believed that somehow the game will make it eventually but i also get this sad feeling it may never make it out at least not in the same vision that was Smedley's and Georgeson's.
Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.
