Freude, schöner Götterfunken, Tochter aus Elysium,
Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heilighthum!
Deine Zauber binden wieder, was die Mode streng getheilt,
Alle Menschen werden Brüder, wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

This excites me and I touch myself in unmentionable places thinking about it. Good job, Radiant! Can't wait to see the distributed version.

I didn't quite get how to be good at the game, but if I figured out how, I would like it a lot better. I mean, like scouting and all that. And making new towns.

Shame we can't have double thumbs up graemlins.

I remember one of the early EARLY versions of Leylines. This looks like a hit release when it comes out.

Wow! This looks great. It sounds a lot like the old classic Master Of Magic in some ways. I definitely will give it a try as soon as it is available!

Hi everybody!

Thanks for the enthousiasm! Still working on some bugs but it should
be done soon. And I guess I'd let some people here play with the
scenario and script editor a bit to see what they can do with it...

Devlish -> What do you mean it wouldn't run, too slow or something? Or
did you mean it was buggy (because it was, I know)

Just that is was buggy, great game, nice improvements but bugs made it impossible for me to play a full game.

LOL but then bugs have way of finding me or is it me finding them? :)

Maybe you're just trying weird stuff to find out what happens. But then
that's a very good attitude in a tester. I remember the kind of levels
Gerben47 used to make to see if SubTerra was working properly, and the
really obscure bugs he found when creating and destroying several
hundred objects per frame update (which is 1/256th of a second) :)

For instance there's a tutorial now that /should/ be proff against people
doing weird stuff. Feel free to double-check this. There'll probably
be the first beta on monday.

Looks great. I can't wait...
...for you to port it to OSX/OS9. :(

(If you can, try to find someone with programming experience who can port it to either platform to you. You'll probably open up a sizeable market of buyers.)

'Cause if you really want to hear our views,
You haven't done nothin'.

A certain computer nerd would be glad to work with you if you wished to port it to any system.

It looks really cool. I'll have to dovnload it. By the way, Radiant, have you ever herd of a game called antiquity? It's an old, crappy game but Leylines reminds me of it alot. Leylines is much better though.

Andraste -> no. But I have played Civ and Master of Magic; observant players
will notice the authors' names in the 'thank you' section of the credits.

Varelse -> It seems we have a taste in books in common.
As to your offer. Well, the game works under SDL so it /should/ be possible to
make a mac port with ease. Now if I can just get the admin here to give me
mac access...

Others -> Let's abort this topic, there's a new leylines-related topic
that's more relevant now, I guess.
