Will test this when I get some time, perhaps this weekend. It looks really good so far though. :)

"Alpha 5 Preview
0 A.D. News Feed  Posted by Jeru on Apr 17 2011, 04:53 PM
Comments: 0 - (Post a comment!)

Some of the new features that will be introduced in 0 A.D. Alpha 5 include new light rendering, fire/dust particles, and a more competitive AI, named "Jubot". Factions shown in the video: Hellenes, Celts, and, for the first time in 0 A.D., Iberians."

What the... you actually uploaded it? Great job Jubal! :D Hats off to you dear Megadux

EDIT: So how does Iberia look?  ;)

JuBot now has full support for the Iberians as well. They look pretty cool, great fun to play with.

I can still hand dear old JuBot a pasting, mostly because I can rush faster and optimise my resource gathering and building strategy more effectively. Nevertheless, I've had some pretty fun battles going on.

So wait, we're getting the alpha of the JuBot that will be on Alpha 5? Awwww :P

Were you able to get a hint when Alpha 5 is going to be released? How are things looking with it? I can't wait for the new particle effects

The particle effects are alright, I'm far more excited about the extremely cool looking Iberians. The swords & slings in their army contrast a lot to the spears and javelins of the greeks & celts, which is nice.

I guess a new faction has all of us exited, a lot more than for the other features.

Man, I can't wait for them to release the Carthage faction, I'm curious for the names they are going to put on the buildings, as well as the unit rooster

Added a bitchin' new 3-pronged attack strategy; prepare to be killed in lots of places at once!  :D

Okay, I'm starting to get scared.
The great thing is that if you're getting these kinds of advancements, I'm guessing that by the release date of 0 A.D, if you change the difficulty setting it won't be that you get handcapped (or whatever, like what happens in RTW), but that the AI will really be harder :P

Still a long way from that I'm afraid, my lack of ability to garrison towers is particularly proving a disadvantage for the AI as my defences are soooo much better than theirs.

It's also now official that a) I'm a 0AD member and b) JuBot will be Alpha 5's AI.  :)

Wow! Nice work. Did they even have an A.I programmer?

I'm eagerly awaiting their announcement in the main page :P

I think I'm quite scared of if... I saw all the advancements you had done in the week before, and I'm scared too see how much more you've added

I haven't really added much since then, and I can still destroy JuBot fairly easily mostly due to its less powerful economy and inability to guard chokepoints. I'll work on fixing those to some extent for Alpha 6 though.
