    Cool! I didn’t know you could do that. I have only played the game the last few days and haven’t found that button yet.

    I didn’t want to remove it, just take it out of player control.

    How about removing the player’s ability to create new cities. That way the cities on the map will become more valuable and the ability to create tier 4 units in mass quantity will be severely hampered.

    There could even be a new AI system of city building during the game. Populations that are too large or unhappy or evil/good alignment will set out as refugee or pioneer groups and create new cities.

    I am having the same problem. I am on Turn 113 on a Medium map with 2AI and myself. I have alliances with both AI(they are at war with each other, but aren’t fighting.)

    What are the rules/conditions for allied victory?

    Do the independents have to be completely destroyed?

    I have scoured the map for any remaining Independents and have been building cities like crazy to claim every remaining grey location.

    Will the AI never fight or declare war or make an alliance with one another?

    I am trying to sell AoW3 to casual gamers who are fans of the fantasy genre and are not already hardcore Age of Wonders fans. Looking for something that AoW3 has that the other game doesn’t.

    I liked the comment by rohirrimelf “a deep tactical game without grinding for gear.”

    The other game mentioned was the top selling game of 2012 and in the top 5 best selling PC games of all time. If it was any other PC game I wouldn’t have brought it up.

    So while they do have some differences in theme and type of gameplay, they are basically a Fantasy PC game, and the average Fantasy pc game consumer is likely going to buy(in the month of march) the one that is on every shelf in every retail store and online distributor. I want to change that, or I want them to buy both.

    I am really excited about this game! Most everything about it looks amazeballs!

    But for some reason this design/art choice to be more reserved just irks me.
    Maybe its how the question was answered above.

    TRIUMPH: There will be nudity where it’s appropriate: no chainmail bikinis for warrior females, but nymphs, succubi or berserkers are more revealing as it fits their function or background.

    You could have just said that you are trying to appeal to a larger audience and nudity will not be featured in the game. Old units that were scantly clad will now have more clothes.

    But then its confusing to read the fluff and it bring to mind the gritty design/art from the previous games.

    The new video has the Nymph in it fully clothed, and I do like how she looks, its just not the same.

    Still don’t let this one small criticism cloud how epic and awesome my anticipation and excitement for this game is. My friends (who I used to play the original with) and I are planning a lan party to celebrate the release.

    You just showed the Succubi with the new rogue trailer and they are quite covered. Despite the description of them on the rogue page “She came from the shadows. Her nearly nude form was more than most men could resist, but I was ready.”

    I understand the “politically correct movement” and a company needing to follow suite so they don’t get in trouble, but in the days of Sword and sorcery movies and Frank Frazetta paintings, the men were bare chested, wearing a loin cloth and the woman were doing the same.

    The old Age of Wonder games, for me, captured that old fantasy feeling, plus the old AoW games were one of the only games from that time to contain nudity. I really think it would have been nice, if you could have found a way to preserve the old Conan aesthetic, instead of embracing the Harry Potter aesthetic.

    Still love what you are doing with the game and I can’t wait to buy it when it comes out. But sometimes the little things really make up the difference and set you apart from the rest.
