Why is this Age of Acent stuff being posted on the Illyriad forum?  Don't they have their own forum?

Yes, but we will cross-post as they are both Illyriad Games games, and players will come from both communities.

Seconding this - I think many illy players have noticed an increased influx of new players into illy in the last six weeks, and the reason for that is almost entirely down to cross-promotion from Age of Ascent.  New players in illy are a good thing, and are a small example of just one of the many ways in which the games can help each other - even outside shared technologies and shared codebases.

I think that more of them are for that Ultima game that got scrapped, but if you say so then you should take into account that making people test TWO games at the same time then it is less likely for them to stick with any of them.

The reasons for this are because most people :
- Do not have too much time for two games
- Do not have enough patience for learning the ins and outs of two immersive games
- Cannot be expected to participate in a beta game and in an "under development" game at the same time

Cross advertisement is a good idea for different commodities (e.g. sports sweaters and sneakers), not similar ones.



Just like a "before and after" ad ! ahahahaah :p

I liked the improvements you made in todays playtest, but it did get confusing at times to see other crafts. Will there be an option to turn on/off that globe-like feature with all the lines in it? I'm guessing it's a type of tracking device.

Edit - I just went to AoA site and watched the video on the Tactical Map, that is the 'globe-like feature' I mentioned.
