Should BOTF be remade whilst keeping its charm?

I think a renewed BOTF will deffinately show gamers that this game is the best game that has ever been made

I either like the original BOTF and spend my time just remodding it continuously or just give up with trying to keep up with 21st century gaming tech

Although the mini map ofc is quite useful for orientation on the map, you cannot use it to scroll around unfortunately.

Best feature though in my opinion is the new system governor in experimental beta version. It keeps your structures manned properly with respect to current build times and the preferred settings you made for the respective colony. No more manual reassignments each time a building in the queue does not require all workers assigned to the production facilities. Can't even think of how it was before ;).

Good luck on your botf plugin system! Sounds like another step towards modularizing the game.

Birth of the Empires is now available for Android smartphones on google play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... te.android

This app is the result of a complete re-encoding of the game in java done by a user on our german forums. You can play the app on a regular pc of course too.

There is no date for a release candidate of the final PC Version of the game, we're still in alpha modus but the game is largely playable without turn problems. Download here: http://www.heise.de/download/birth-of-the-empires.html (german download site, but game is in english)

Since nobody mentioned it here yet, there is a downloadable PC version for the Java port, it can be downloaded from:
