The add-on will be produced in co-operation with outstanding developers Ukrainian GSC Gameworld, who were already responsible for the previous RTS masterpiece.

New units, nations, ships, a map editor, joining forces with the computer and exchanging resources all together take Cossacks - The Art of War, scheduled for release in the 4th quarter of 2001, to a new level.

Prophecy really like the game, giving it strong scores across the board.

"What makes Cossacks so impressive in this area is its scope. Everything about it is bigger! and better! and feels like it should have an exclamation mark coming after it."

Heavengames user database Annoucement
Posted @ 1:59 AM || Angel ET

This announcement was posted by Angel Jayhawk in reference to upcoming changes in Heavengames user database. Here's the post, and thanks Jayhawk .

Time for a bit of a technical talk.

A long time ago we started with two separate databases, one for the Citybuilders and one for Age of Kings (and all that followed after). Now we've passed the stage where this was needed and the Powers Above (i.e. Zen) will be merging the two databases.
To make sure you'll still be with us after the merger he asks you to make certain that your email address (as written in your profile)is:

  • accurate
  • an active account (i.e. we regularly get bounced emails from inactive hotmail users)
  • not filtered (i.e. AOL members sometimes might have too high of a restriction on their mail and thus resulting in forum emails being bounced)
  • not "overquota" (i.e. full mailbox)

... and most importantly, an account that you check regularly for mail.

We'll be send out more details about the forum user database merge later in the month. Not being able to read these emails and follow the instructions contained in them could possibly result in your account being renamed or purged during the merge.
