You're right - must be old files that did not get overwritten, when I copied the new directory over the old one. Sorry about the confusion, I caused.


Being no programmer, I apologize for all my suggestions that imply undue workload and for other misjudgements due to lack of expertise or relevant skills.
I am on Win32, have no means to compile, and rely on prefabricated distributions (Thanks to Tino).

Great Job, Chuck!
Those erection/transitions animations are spectacular.
All very logical and well planned!
The shine from the fire with the warmill is a great extra.
Raising the roof and oversizing the weapons definitely was a good decision!

Two things I noted, remotely concerning the new models:
There is an issue with a road immediately to the east of the buildings - the old z-layer stuff, when carriers go from northwest to south east.
And the blacksmith at the metalworks and axefactory always carry their anvil when they bring out a new tool or weapon. Looks a bit odd.
But I guess that is for later.
Otherwise, really all very beautiful!

Thanks for your comments, Astuur.

The blacksmith (and all workers except soldiers for that matter) has only one set of walking animations and one set of "carry" animations. When I designed the blacksmiths and other workers, I wanted to make them identifiable on the roads, so a player can tell at a glance or two if a worker is in transit to a new building. So most of the workers carry something of their trade while they walk. Until we can get a second set of animations for "returning from delivery", our poor blacksmiths must keep on hefting those anvils. Now THAT is really "pumping iron". face-grin.png


I see little people.
