It's a nice little game, very similar to a downloadable form of Raiders and Traders really.  :)

Yah, that was sort of my reference/inspiration. Hope you don't mind :P. Also, work on V0.3 is going nicely. Hopefully I can toss in a few more buildings.

Modify - Updated main post

Well done, nice game! Lots of room to expand, and I hope you have the time and motivation to do so :P I actually was kinda scared about getting attacked myself, so my wall level was pretty high... what is the stone resource for, though?

I'd give suggestions, but they appear to be covered already for the next version. The only thing that I could think of is maybe having different scales of raiding, if you know what I mean... like a raiding possibility that is very close (less travel time) and has weak defenses, but little booty (for when you're just starting), and then another possibility of a big town for raiding, that gives you a lot more booty, but has stronger defenses and is farther away (so you might get yourself raided while your troops are away). Maybe adding a middle-ground town in between wouldn't do bad.

You might also add like something hat lets you choose how many soldiers you send for raiding (it could turn out useful if you're able to implement what I said in the last paragraph)

Yah, I'm only able to update and upload new versions when I come over to the library. I've already add "Taxes", I'm changing the Walls to cost 15 Stone and reduce the Lumber to 5. Gold will stay 20. I'm also planning a total revision of the raid system. Apparently when you attack with a lot of guys, it screws with it. Anyways, no more info. You will have to wait and see :D

I apologize very much for a lack of content. I am currently working on a mini-game to fill in the gap while I work on "Kingdom Creator". Hope you guys can bear with me :P

I can't bear with you.

But I'll attempt to sheep with you.

Nice one, Debux xD. Also, another set-back. My laptop charger is busted, so I can't do anything until I get a new one. I've also got back-ups on my flashdrive, so in-case it doesn't actually fix anything, I'm good :P

Production and updating of Kingdom Creator has been cancelled. Details can be found on 1st Post. Taking ideas for a new game!

That's a real pity mate cause it definitely had a lot of potential. I may get in touch with some ideas soon but I'm a busy and feeling just a little off colour at the moment so it might be a while in coming.

Add a function to calculate factorials (x! = x * (x-1) * (x-2) * ... * 1, 0! = 1). A nice easy way to learn about recursion.

Added some other programs! Hope you like them :D

since I don't know how to implement the usual/system file-chooser

Use a javax.swing JFileChooser (http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.4.2/docs/api/javax/swing/filechooser/package-summary.html) :)
