Rhododactylos, or "rosy fingered" in greek is 18th version of 0 A.D. to be released.

More info can be found Here


Top New Gameplay Features in This Release
Nomad Game Mode: Players start with only some citizen soldiers and female citizens, and no civil center, and must build a base from scratch.
In-Game Technology Tree: Allows players to see which faction can research what technologies, when and for how many resources.
The default AI, Petra, now supports saved games.
Toggle groups of units between marching in formation and breaking formation.
New Seleucid buildings: The new buildings are the house, storehouse, farmstead, towers and temple. The Civic Center is a placeholder for now and will be updated before the Seleucids are finished.

Ooh, AIs with savegames. That's impressive, they've been trying to do that since I was involved with it...

Also, pinned.

Just since build 17, it peaked my interest a while back but I just started playing. I'll  have to download the update soon and give it a go. I love the concept, it's like age of empires but more fun! :D

Yes, it's great!

My inner classicist really likes the name of this release as well; the "rosy-fingered dawn" is one of the nicest repeated motifs in the Odyssey.  :)

That was a work of Homer correct? I really need to get on reading his stuff.

Yes - though we're not sure there was ever a terribly definite figure called Homer. The Odyssey and Iliad are attributed to him anyway - they're both great books and well worth reading :)

Damn I remember I really wanted to give this a crack ages back but my internet was too armadilloe to actually do it. Might have to re-evaluate now.
