    Lukasz, I'm sorry, but I think you are making a mistake by not updating AoCII further. There's no workshop, there's no iOS, the game is buggy, some people can't even launch the game, it could use more scenarios, etc. Wouldn't it be better to wait on starting on a new project for just a little bit longer?

    Lukasz, we understand that working on the game is very tedious and tiring, but PLEASE, stop being a dickhead to everyone who you disagree with. If you just want to abandon the game, it would be better for all of us if you release source code. ————————  Please don’t ban

    Dear Lukasz Jakowski, this message is being sent to you on behalf of the Spanish-speaking community of AOC. As you may have noticed, the forum doesn't has much activity lately except for our subforum, which is one of those that is currently more important, and for that reason, we want to show you this message, voted by the majority of the people who speak our language. Dear Łukasz Jakowski: We communicate formally with you in order to present several aspects which should be taken into consideration for the improvement and stability of the forum and the Age of Civilization 2 game in the opinion of our community. In first place we would like to inform you about the great spam content that is growing in the forum, this is making mad the different communities. The spam is affecting us all, since it saturates the forum with undesirable content, in addition to practically blocking the access to different sections that are usually very active. Secondly, the lack of administrators is becoming too noticeable and brings problems. The lack of administrators in the forum has not only allowed, as stated above, the content of spam to grow every day, but also users increase who only dedicate themselves to insulting and annoying others every day. Third, we believe that the entire Age of Civilization community would be grateful if you could get updates with which you can correct many of the bugs present in the game and also if it would be possible to add new content such as a system of crusades between Muslims and Christians. In addition, another proposal that we think is interesting is the possibility of adding a system of religions, which is similar to the system of government, where each civilization besides having its type of government, also has its religion and that the player can change it during the game. It would be taken into consideration if it could add a voting system for the democracies and republics, and that depending on the winning party could generate certain changes in civilization,we don't ask for something complex, but something simple with which it would help to differentiate the republics from the monarchies. We say this because the system of leaders is something that the community also complains about since these are immortal and never change, as a suggestion to correct this could be that the leaders can live until a certain year and when they die, the game gives you the option to put another leader in the place or create a new one, with a image creation system for leaders or selecting one that already exists in the game. And last, but not least, several of the users of the forum have asked themselves how the ranking system works, and they think it is wrong and that it does not always work, for which an explanation is requested for its part. Sincerely, the Spanish-speaking community of AOC.

    If you work for modders, modders will work for you. A couple of new features would help advance the modding community: 1) An event overhaul to make it more flexible. Currently, the event editor is so bugged that text will quite simply run off the screen. Here's what would improve the event editor: Fixing obvious bugs (text running off the screen, conditions not working [Controlled by, army in province are examples of conditions not working], the 'decision taken' condition displaying an error message even when valid, et cetera). Fix the 'Repeatable' glitch: Even when the conditions for the event are not met, the event fires anyway. Properly implemented booleans on events would prevent this. Adding a search field (also known as a search box) so that modders are able to search for events and organise their events better (especially handy when the number of events exceeds 100). Adding an event that is applicable to multiple participants with the following fields: Random Civilisation: Selects a random country once the event fires. Multiple Civilisations: Actively checks and fires the event (once conditions are met) for all countries in the list. Any Civilisation: Actively checks and fires the event for any country in the game. (Would be great for flavour events to keep the game fresh). Every Civilisation: When any country meets the conditions necessary to fire the event, all countries will receive events. Adding a new effect that would allow for buildings to be built on provinces. Adding a new effect that would annex land to a civilisation regardless of the province owner/controller. 2) New editors for existing mechanics. This would open up brand new possibilities for modders. Building Editor: Enables for the creation and editing of buildings, and the various effects that they would give. Technology Editor: Enables for the creation and editing of technology, and the various effects that they would give. 3) New mechanics/features. Capability for multiple units. This would ideally come with an editor which could create new units and adjust such things as cost, manpower, manoeuvre, offence, and defence. These units do not need unit models. Simply place an icon to the left of the number to represent which unit they are. Culture/Religion. Culture or religion would go a lot farther than the current nationality system, allowing for more complex behaviour as well as a better assimilation mechanic. (Right now, you simply throw money at people to make them 'assimilate', cultures would need to be 'accepted' or 'tolerated'). Casus bellis. Also known as 'justifications for war', casus bellis would put an end to the mindless wars that the AI tends to do. These would also come as event effects, and causes for war could be edited by modders via a new editor, or a .json file. Casus bellis would significantly improve the AI, and do away with the current concept of 'AI Aggressivity'. Loading screens (Not necessary). Custom static loading screens are extremely easy to implement in Java. It requires fetching a raw image from a file and simply rendering it on top of the screen. These would make the game (as well as mods) look far more professional than it already does. 4) Steam Workshop. At the end of the day, mods need to be distributed somehow. And the best way for mods to reach a wider audience is through Steam Workshop. Combined with previous reforms (which should be relatively easy to do given that the core framework of the game is already implemented), mods of much higher quality than the ones we see right now would begin to appear. Conclusion: These changes to the game would completely overhaul the game for the better, revolutionising the way mods are made and drastically improving the quality of these mods. In the end, it's the modding community that makes games successful, and that applies to the realm of Grand Strategy as well. Players are looking for features, and only you can deliver on that. Work for modders, so that modders work for you.

    I really hate writing mean messages to people, but honestly, with no offense, this just has to be said. Abandoning AoC2 for you is a really, really big mistake. You develop a game, publish it and abandon it after a short while, saying you've "worked on it for long enough". Do you know what this tells relays to your customers? That you don't care about them. That you care about quantity over quality. You promise features but don't keep to your promises, not even fixing bugs. This just simply tells your customers what to expect of your next project - a half-broken game with bugs that aren't going to be fixed by the developer. If you want to start a new project, first you need to gather interest for it from the last project. Completely abandoning your last project half-finished is not at all a good way of doing so. I'm sorry that I just went all-out, but it was something that just had to be said. I loved the idea of AoC2, I saw great potential. All you needed was to fix bugs, improve the editor and add some demanded features. Your player base would then understand that you care for them, you listen to them, meaning they'd be interested in your next project all the more. Believe it or not, continuing support for AoC2 will do more for your new project than actually working on it right now. Either way, I still wish you luck and good fortune.

    Age of Civilizations 2 — a great game that has a huge potential and a motley, large community. How many people have become her loyal fans, who are still waiting for updates on the game, which was released on November 22, 2018 quite raw and with a lot of bugs. Major updates or even simple bugfixes we have not seen, and the developer continues to ignore the messages of players and does not plan to develop his masterpiece. Łukasz, why did you start making a new game without finishing the old one? You have not yet completed your first, grandiose and large-scale project, updates for which are waiting for all the fans, but at the same time already strive to make a new game? Don't you realize that this very new project will be perceived by the audience with negative for the simple reason that you corny did not finish AOC 2? What do we players need? We want to see at least one update that will fix bugs, and in the best case-will introduce global innovations in the game, with new chips and mechanics. Łukasz, we, your loyal fans, will remember you as a wonderful developer, and the Creator of a large, and most importantly – a successful project, if you still do what we ask. Believe me, not every one of us wants to see a new project, while the existing one does not meet expectations and prospects. This can always be done later, you have a lot of time for new projects. First you need to bring to the ideal existing. After all, he really deserves it, and it will be better for everyone. Lukas, save AoC II. We will be especially happy and grateful if you respond to our spam-action, which we had to arrange to get your attention and response. Sincerely, dedicated players of your promising project.
