this is only a small demo of what flatworld can offer. its got A working tutiral. which you best look at. the only options so far is freebuild which allows you to build up a settlement, with a selection of 15ish buildings, from houses, wood cutters. farms, barracks, and more! currently theres no fighing envolved yet and the only milirtary units are spearman and archers. this demo may be full of bugs so plases tell me if you find any errors. anyway enjoy!
tell me what you people think!

Posted by Simdrone052 11th November, 2002

aww man! you stole my idea, I was working on a game kinda like this, but a little futuristic, uninhabitable colony X, some may remember...
Posted by Rhys Davies 11th November, 2002

ha i had the idea of a side-view rts ages ago. eric and i were making games like it
Posted by Death Reaper X 12th November, 2002

Very nice demo Gareth, can't wait to see the full version :) One suggestion is possibly when the mouse overlaps a building, you could have some text reminding you what it is -- I know you can see by looking at what's built onto it but as they're all cave buildings you sometimes have to look closer--and I imagine in battle this would get a bit annoying. Just a suggestion though :) Keep up the good work!
Posted by -Deleted Member- 12th November, 2002

Okay, and when you select the wrong building, you should make a right-click to cancel the building. Also a key to demolish the building as well.
Posted by gareth 12th November, 2002

yer i will make it so u can cancel buildings and also a demolish button? u guys know any more bugs, im adding combat at the moment. and whats hard about the controls. theres just one button u need really!!
Posted by gareth 12th November, 2002

Reminds me of the game Civilization: Call to Power. I love strategy games like these. I especially love Siege!
Posted by Muz 13th November, 2002

Heheh...I remember this game. Still workin on it, Gafy? I'd help ya...but this particular TGF game doesn't convert well into MMF. Damn MMF >:|.
Posted by Muz 13th November, 2002

Screw the DC smilies as well. That was supposed to be an angry face. Bah, I'm too lazy to memorize all the smilies. :P
Posted by Pete Nattress 13th November, 2002

Posted by gareth 13th November, 2002

I have competition? er u making a rts aswel? me neva playd any of yer games MMSX what hav u made?? thanks full will come out next year (hopefully) new demo coming out in about amonth (hopefully)
Posted by kreature 16th November, 2002

Really great, but I did notice a bug. I don't know if anyone have already mentioned it, because I really didn't care to read through all the damn comments. Anyway, it occurs sometimes that when I fly around with a building to drop down that suddenly all the backdrops (or other objects, whatever) overlap the one building I have chosen. This totally screws up the game as far as I know (Now, I really haven't tried that much to "fix it", other than pressing every f***in button on the keyboard, and clicking the damn mouse)
Posted by Akearix 16th November, 2002

hey yall... its my first comment but yah, I think this game is gona be pretty good and i cant wait for it to be released
Posted by Blast_Boy 17th November, 2002

THIS IS AN AWESOME GAME!!! GREAT WORK AND I CAN"T TILL YOU FINISH IT!!! The only suggestion I can make is: You need to make the scrolling a bit easier and quicker (maybe put a map where you can click to go somewhere).
Posted by gareth 17th November, 2002

yer, bu map means more objects, flatworlds already pushing TGF to it's max objects, what ever that is, me, seems like its only 3!!!!!!!!!!!!! and rushed, um i dunno whats wrong, the backdrops shudnt go ova the buildings at all, other buildings will overlap, but u can't build while overlapping other buidlings?
Posted by Aali [Crazy_Productions] 17th November, 2002

get MMF gareth
Posted by TS Team 17th November, 2002

As for an idea for battling... You should have the unit with the better tech win. I.E.Man on sheep VS. Man on sheep with spear = Man on sheep with spear wins. This is just a suggestion, so don't let this realy effect your plans. Great game!
Posted by gareth 18th November, 2002

yer me making it like that, a man walks in to other man they have a scrap most powerfulest wins, but wot to do if a spearman goes against a spearman?
Posted by Aali [Crazy_Productions] 19th November, 2002

you should scroll with the mouse instead. it makes it "easier" to play
Posted by gareth 19th November, 2002

mouse scrollings to hard to smooth out well. i ve speeded up the scrolling tho.
Posted by Adam 19th November, 2002

First comment, Ur game is really good very proffecional especially at start i like that alot, This has been mentioned before the left and right cursor has to be smoother but its bearable, the cancel button You should have labels for things like the characters i dident know who was who, i dident understand what they did and its quite complicated this could be solved with the labes on people and explaining what they do. A very very good game with alot of potentiol keep up the good work!!!
Posted by gareth 20th November, 2002

okay, me got right click cancels buildings. del key demolishes buildings. also labels have been added for the buildings and but not the people yet. combat is done (works very nice) adner readfing dines review, your layer idea sounds good, but not yet, maybe flatworld two, aslo your have to show me how to load each frame up again, ive tryed and cant get my head around it. :)
Posted by Aali [Crazy_Productions] 20th November, 2002

i say this again get mmf gareth. it's easy to do both people labels and smooth mouse scrolling (that is possible in TGF too but it's a bit trickier)
Posted by gareth 20th November, 2002

labels is easy, and i didnt like mmf, much but i only had the 30 day demo so didnt get in to it much
Posted by Aali [Crazy_Productions] 20th November, 2002

hehe i've used the TGF,MMF,and jamagic 30 day trials for about two years now (i have mmf 1.5 standard now)
Posted by gareth 20th November, 2002

you people got any idea on how to solve this problem... when say a woodcutter gets killed i wanna make it so the building that he came from becomes unactive, and the tick flag goes away. ive tryd but all that happens either all the woodcutters become un active or none of them do!!!
Posted by Adam 20th November, 2002

No but when is the new demo coming out :) sounds good and ur doing great work website could do with some touching up though ;)
Posted by gareth 21st November, 2002

website doesnt work does it?
Posted by Aali [Crazy_Productions] 22nd November, 2002

try "Pick Woodcutter at random"
Posted by gareth 22nd November, 2002

DOH! that works sorta, thanks mate
Posted by Greywolfexcel 22nd November, 2002

oooo... I haven't seen an original idea like this in a LONG time... can't wait fro the full!! Will it be freeware?
Posted by TS Team 22nd November, 2002

This is original, but there are many other games like this. Goto Download the new version to check out battle...
Posted by TS Team 22nd November, 2002

Whoops, I mean I'm downloading the new version to check out battle...
Posted by TS Team 23rd November, 2002

After playing the new version, I'd like to mention some bugs and I also have a few questions. Bugs: 1.While scrolling to the way far end of the map, the object you used to scroll the screen goes off the whole map and when trying to scroll back to the other direction, you have to wait for it to travel back onto the screen. 2.Sometimes the mouse doesn't appear on the page. Questions: 1.You said you finished making the battle engine, but what are you suppose to battle? 2.Will the full version be shareware or freeware?
Posted by gareth 23rd November, 2002

you battle the eneamy tibes, (eneamy spearman, arachers and people riding cows (i cant draw horses!!!!) and yes ive fixed the scroll problem and made it scroll faster, music is now added, and plenty of sounds. and i dunno bout free or share, maybe free. and i think the mouse problem is that i starts at the top corner which is a problem, ill fix rright away
Posted by Adam 23rd November, 2002

s when is the newer demo coming out, the website is good but because of the reviews good be better
Posted by gareth 23rd November, 2002

website? new demo coming out about 1month time. me worked out that this game may include at least 30 levels, me already made 5 campign levels :) and most bugs fixed

Hey! Good graphics!!!
Posted by T Koivisto 6th August, 2003

it is very nice game but still something needs
Posted by CarpetSmoker 26th December, 2003

it's a good game, but, like all demo's, it needs some improvments: make a way to undo ur building selection(when building something new) I will totally hate u if u dont include this, it's really anoyying to select the wrong building and u HAVE to place it... make a mini-map of some sort, it makes it easyer to navigate around... make a button that alows u to fast-scroll, the scrolling is somewhat slow... all the recourses are way to easy to gather, exept for food(i never have enough) demolishing ur buildings....(preferably with a big explosion of some kind....) the mouse disapears sometimes(or it seems to) also, the mouse is quite hard to see, maybe should give it a diffrent color?(or make the color a seting) I really liked the game, the side-way scrolling system is unique(as far as i know) and pretty good, so are the graphics and the (somewhat toon-like) sounds. riding cows sounds much more intrestin then horses.....mankind was pretty strange in it's early days... can't wait for the next version....
