The Beer Garden of Babel / Cymraeg (Welsh)

If anyone's interested, Civ 5 is just £4.99 on Steam, alongside many other games with ridiculous price reductions, some of which have less than an hour to go.

I've never played a Civilisation game until now, and when I saw the price tag on Civ 5, along with decent reviews, I went for it. Being used to Total War and AoE type strategy games before, it's an interesting change to have everything on the turn based map, with no RTS involved at all, quite nice as it gives you time to think about what to do next. Currently got a game running as the Songhai Empire and have very nearly wiped out the French. There are other nations, but they appear to be on other islands and my naval technology isn't good enough to reach them yet. Still having a roaring good time and discovered I'd played almost 10 hours solid last night, which would be why I'm currently nocturnal. :P

Anyone else into the Civ games and wish to comment? I will admit it was the mention of Jubal's mod for Civ 2 that got me going for the idea of actually getting a Civ game.

So, stupid subtitle aside, what hopes and dreams do we all have for M&B2? I'm personally hoping for a better looking world map, or maybe have it completely RPG style, with no world map, and better storytelling and quests. Oh, and an improved AI for both sides as well.

And of course, good modability so we can make it better when it fails our expectations. :)

Fresh from Auntie:

Your thoughts? My personal opinion is very much against closed hearings, due to the temptation to commit a miscarriage of justice when nobody is looking. The fact that the courts are open is probably one of the few things preventing many officials doing just that.

Apologies for the pretentious title, but I wanted something a bit more interesting than 'I'm leaving'. ;)

I am afraid I am stepping down as Technikos and Owner of Exilian. I spend very little time on Exilian these days, and feel I am ineffective as a staff member, and should step down for another to take my place.

Exilian has grown a lot since I started this whole thing as Mixed Mods god knows how many years ago, and now I feel I can leave it to carry on its own path. I have enjoyed most of the times spent here, and I hope that you guys have at least tolerated me. ;)

My resignation also means that I am no longer planning on being the owner of the hosting account or domain name. Me and the admins are currently working out the best path of action to take regarding this, and will resolve it in the next few days.

Like I said, it's been a fun ride, and I'm sad to leave now, but life is all about change, and this is just another one in that journey. I won't be gone forever, I will still pop in occasionally, but not as staff. That I now leave to Jubal, Comrade_General, Son of the King, Phoenixguard and all of the other staff that help to keep the site running like clockwork. She's yours now guys, look after her for me, yeah?

Now, there's a 'demote' button around here somewhere, I'm sure of it...

Adios, amigos!

So, ladies and gents, post about your favourite films here and review any new (to you) films you may have watched recently.

My recent one is Kill Bill 1 and 2, hadn't watched them in a while, and they're definitely a good watch, if not the most in depth plot wise.

Also, the soundtrack is pretty awesome. ;D

Hey guys, as you may have noticed, we have a new theme. It is still under construction though, and we could do with your help in finding oddities to fix and suggestions for how it could be improved.

When reporting bugs, please mention what browser you are using and provide a link to the offending page if possible.

Thanks,

Marcus.

General Gaming - The Arcade / Oil Rush
« on: January 07, 2012, 07:48:33 PM »
Anyone got this game? I just bought it last night and it's pretty good fun and very stable for a beta, although it should be since the final release is on the 25th. :P

The Generals' Tent - 0 A.D. Discussion / Carthage in Latium: A 0 A.D. AAR
« on: January 06, 2012, 06:33:19 PM »
It's about time somebody started writing one, so I'm doing one of Carthage in a randomly generated Latium map.

The AI is qBot, and the teams are me as Carthage, my ally as Celts, and my enemies are the Hellenes and Iberians. First post below.

Bethesda Entertainment / Fallout 3

Well, I got the GotY edition for £5.99 on Steam, and I'm waiting for it to install. So, where should I start, what do you reckon is the most fun way, rather than the easiest?

The Town Crier! Announcements! / MALWARE ISSUE ON SITE
« on: December 05, 2011, 10:27:18 AM »
Hi guys, some of you may have noticed a malware warning when visiting Exilian lately, this was because the .htaccess file was modified to perform redirects to malware sites when exilian was clicked on from google. I have removed the offending file and am about to request a review of the site to get it taken off the blacklist, and I would strongly suggest everyone does a virus check on their systems, just to make sure nothing evil was downloaded.

Thanks,

Marcus.

The Generals' Tent - 0 A.D. Discussion / Remember when...

They ran a donation campaign to get one solid month's worth of work out of a developer? Well, this is the result so far...

One of the most commonly requested features is saving in single-player games. I've implemented that now - you can simply hit the "save game" button when playing ...

Carry on to read more. Glad the money is working, so many times these days we see money just get injected into a black hole, with no positive outcome from it.

Discussion and Debate - The Philosopher's Plaza / UK Riots 2011
« on: August 10, 2011, 01:21:49 PM »
So, looting, fires, half-bricks. Lovely stuff. Pity the riots are more about greed than police brutality, but I doubt they would have happened without something like Duggan's death as the catalyst. Will be interesting to see how the next couple of years go.

What's your thoughts on the riots?

Edit: Having read some opinion pieces from Al Jazeera, that didn't just do blanket condemnation of the riots, I can see that it's going to take more than water cannon and plastic bullets to stop this. This appears to be the build up of decades of armadillo the poor areas of London, Birmingham etc. have had to endure, and they've had enough.

Of course, I will openly say I have no idea what it is like to live in a situation like that, my opinions come from what I have read. I wonder if other cities will start rioting soon...
