Time to get serious...

We have a unique opportunity to influence the development of AoW3, so before you post your suggestions, please keep the following in mind (as echoed by developer Sikbok, here):

Search the forums before making a new topic
To avoid repetition of topics, please check the forum if your suggestion/question has already been posted. If a suggestion has been posted, please add your support to that topic by posting something (even if it is just: "I agree"). This will make it clear to the devs that a particular topic is an important issue.

Post ONE idea or issue per topic
HG-boards do not limit the amount of topics, so please make several ones for each topic or suggestion. Try to group your suggestions if they do have a similar theme, of course (e.g., "Three important story elements we want to see in an AoW3 Campaign"). This allows subject headers to be more descriptive and developers to quickly find information on topics as well as assess its importance to the community. This prevents the development of those horrid, 'unreadable' AoW-suggestion threads that have several discussions embedded in them. Threads, like these, are generally a waste of time for developers to dig through.

Have a specific and clear subject header
Please DO NOT start your subject headers like: "important issues for AoW3!" or "Question!", as users won't be able to find the topics you care about. Instead, be as specific as you can.

Be patient and respectful
Do not assume that just because a developer doesn't respond to your topic that it hasn't been read, or that no one cares. Do not start making different topics with the same suggestion, or hijack other threads to get your idea out. Developers have better things to do than constanly answer questions on forums, or to justify decisions that are made. No response? Move on (or form a peaceful cult about it).

Be aware that the Moderators on this board may take actions to your post in accordance to the above mentioned guidelines, for example, we may:
- Change your subject header to make it clearer
- Close a topic if it has already been posted
- Warn members who are disrespectful

If you disagree with a decision of a moderator, please email them privately (preferred), or post here publically.

Now that we got that covered... check out the FAQ and lets get those ideas flowing!!

Hi everyone,


Just to prove Swolte's point, yes we are here reading the forums : D>

Thnx for the support and all the positive comment. It's been a blast reading what everyone has to say after working on this "in secret". It means a lot.


Swolte, thnx for kicking off an AoW3 section of the forum.

Swolte, do you think it is worth moving the "Age of Wonders 3 Ideas?" thread here?

+1 for the idea thread moved here. But I have to say I already like a lot of what I saw and read.

Great idea, and thanks Sikbok!

I moved the thread to here.

I would recommend, however, to start a separate topic for each idea or suggestion (we have a near unlimited capacity of topics... ). This will make it easier for devs to find ideas, to assess how popular it is (i.e., by amount of ideas), and for users to search for the ideas and find out whether an idea has already been mentioned.

It's good to see AOW3 announced. Over the course of all of these years, I've played many different TBS games, but I keep coming to Age of Wonders every once so often.
That reminds me, I still do have an updated map script on my flash drive somewhere for AOWSM. I may have to rework that for AOW3, if I ever have the time to get into mapping again.

In any case, cheers. I've thoroughly enjoyed every game TS has made, and I will be preordering this one.

Thanks for launching this forum Swolte!

It must have been incredible getting a sneek peek of AoW 3. And a true Damocles Sword NDA to resist telling anyone =P

First The Witcher 3 and now this? That's a whole lot of awesome in just one week.

I don't normally preorder games, but I think I'll have to make an exception for AoW3. Didn't think this game would ever happen.

Thanks for setting up this forum Swolte - especially because i can't register on the official boards - no password ever gets sent. Steam didn't seem to work either, and I try to avoid Facebook when possible.

Hi devs! I know you've read the "Age of Wonders 3 Ideas?" thread, and I am interested as to what you think of the ideas presented?

Have a great day/year etc!

Hi Steven Aus,


Yes, we've read them : )> Also, keep them coming. Even if we don't comment on them directly.
We value your opinions and posts frequently cause discussion amongst the team.

Having them split up as Swolte suggested makes it easier for us to read up, so please split them up.
Also, giving them descriptive and specific names makes life easier for us.
We have a game to finish in between reading posts, so anything that helps us get to juicy information quickly is much appreciated ; )>

On the suggestions themselves. It's good to see the concerns people have about the game.
E.g. "is this in", "this has changed, not sure about it". We've made a bunch of choices. So, we've changed things because we think it makes the game better. We've also chosen not to change things, because we believe changing them would make the game worse. But all those decisions have been made without community feedback. So, now things are out in the open, grab your chance and let us know what you think we should do.

Then there are suggestions that are based on speculation, fault assumptions, etc. There's also some that are ultra specific.
Those suggestions are interesting to read - and we do read them - but are harder for us to comment on and work with. Personally I prefer the broad strokes now, leaving the details for when you guys know a bit more about where we're going and we get down to polishing the individual pixels : )>

So the tl:dr version.
* Keep the suggestions coming.
* Help us out by making them easy to take in.
* Give us the big things first.
* We'll work on the rest later.

Hey guys.

Only just now woke up from winter hibernation to see this game announced. Can't wait!
A quick question, not really worthy of it's own thread, but which may be a dealbreaker to me:

Unit descriptions, are they still in? Do we have word yet?

*edit* Found it! Still groggy from winter, never mind!

It's like watching a flock of clown-like apes trying to navigate a ship, even though the ship has in fact been stranded on some kind of reef for about 7 years and none of the apes have noticed it yet. -Drahnier on OD moderation.

Deptak, ce n'est pas le bon endroit mais saches que je n'ai aucune sorte de problème avec les différents mods. Au pire ça passe en anglais sur certaines sections.

Deptak, it's not the good place but you'll have to know that i haven't any sort of problem on any mods. It's swapping to english on some sections, at worst.

I have been away from the forums for a while and I just happened to pop back on because I got a new computer and re-installed AOW I and needed the 1.36 patch. Now I see AOW 3 is coming. Its a pretty good day.
