This is Evo, 5.5 years ago. I actually have the sd7 if anyone wants it for the sake of nostalgia.

And this is evo a couple of months ago...

If a no-talent ass-clown like me can make that transformation happen (with a metric boatload of help from 99% of the people in this community and with kaiserj's awesome skillset), imagine what you can do!

5.5 years to add textures?
meh! :roll:

Joking aside, I think development probably goes faster once you get things going. The beginning is the hard part, and perhaps a bit too hard.

I just managed to import a boar from 0ad into Spring (using Flozi's C module) and have it render and scale properly (with textures). It took me 4~ hours to do this (most of it spent in figuring out basic things). For the next unit it would probably take me less than 5mins.

I want an SDK that can import assets with a drag-and-drop level of difficulty.

Implementing skeletal animations in 4h would've felt like an achievement.
Patience. :wink:

Well from the way you said it, it could be taken to have been carrepaired limb by limb rather than that.

I would not say that. Comparing age to 0083.. 0083 wins.
