Default Re: Age of Empire 3 demo coming this Sept!!!

The pieces are affected by physics but the actual destruction of the buildings and objects are not. If a building is hit at the top of it, the roof wont get destroyed but once the building takes enough damage it will fall apart according to physics. Same with soldiers, when hit they will go flying realistically and tree's will fall over in the manner that they should but they wont get the top or split in half.

I'll bet it'll run like tefloned hydralic shafts on 6800GT+ class hardware. It'll probably beat the crap out of mid-low end CPUs though.

I am busily preparing a nice crow for you to eat this September.

Meh - I'm cruising along at 260 KB/s - 17 mins to go.

Unfortunately, I can't really play it today - not properly. Still, I'll take a quick look once it's here.

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.
