It's the color! Nobody's posting because it's sooooo grey. You should liven this place up a little! I can see it now, luminous orange on neon green, and scatter a psychedelic elephant here and there. It could be beautiful! Beautiful, I say!!! Beautiful!!! *cackles madly*

ahhahaha FELIX!!! You are safe, for almost no one visits here anymore (the occasional die-hard EE fans excluded). The downloads section though is well, more active (around 50+ downloads in a week maybe), so the scen design aspect is at least kicking.

It's sad really; I've heard EE is a great game. I've never actually played it if I'm completely honest, but I have played a mobile version some time ago. Not that that counts at all.

If I may, may I suggest you give it a try? It's a very good game. Rick Goodman (the original AoE lead designer), is Empire Earth's lead designer too. Maybe trying it would make you interested in designing too. It has a very powerful scen editor.

I'd love to give at a play at some point, but I really don't play games enough these days. My gaming hours for the last three months or more are probably only two or three. Chances are I'd try it once and then forget about.

*sigh*

Mayhap when I'm older and not studying so much!

I'd be happy if you'd try it, and tell me what you think about it, in your own time. It will never hurt the EE community if one active member of AOK manages to like and design for EE too. THAT would be phenomenal, in my opinion. Kor (Derfel Cadarn) had some very good scenarios in EE too. If you want to try, check this:

Such early classics and faves of mine. Good Thing is Kor is still around in AOK, but mostly in modding stuff.

Me, design? Oh, those were the days. Shame I was always quite poor at it, although the good thing is that I didn't spam the blacksmith: I always thought I was quite dignified in my... uh... badness.

Saying that, I do have a small project in the pipeline, but I just seem to be so short on time for these things.

^ There's an Empire Earth. I'll give it a look hopefully soon, but I have no idea when that means. I haven't opened up AoK in weeks and I'm staff on their heaven so... yeah.

as they say, "Take your time", Felix. And, if you are planning to buy it, a couple of dollars extra you can get both EE (vanilla and expansion) in GOG.

Again, hoping you'll find the time and interest to play EE. Cheers!

I've never actually thought about the grey being the potential cause of the lack of activity here.

I was about to reply that the post is not serious, when I happen to read the old post by Xenophone and all the tongue-in-cheek humor you gave him. So yeah, but I'm sticking my tongue out.

Humor, me? No, certainly not. You must be mistaken.

ooooo... the days, the good old days... I should have discovered EEH earlier, and I could have the privilege of knowing you, GoSailing, and all the legends since. :P

Jokes aside, legends is surely too strong a word. I think nostalgia plays a large part in the idea of people who've been around for a while being "legendary."

Well, you have a point there, besides the fact that when you say "legends" it denotes "oldness" How about Pioneers? Really, if only CEM files have been decoded, the community could have extended the life/ replayability of EE for a couple of years more...
