Pyrogenesis is the nickname given to the custom built engine developed for 0 A.D. Featuring an enriched 3D environment, a particle system, OGL graphics and 32-bit color, it not only provides a powerful environment, but allows the game to have very minimal system requirements, which will be available for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. To cater to our Linux crowd, we've opted to use the OpenGL API rather than DirectX, which not only functions just as proficiently, but it's already bundled in your video card drivers, so there's no need to worry about downloading the right version to run 0 A.D.

Sounds will be handled by the .ogg encoding alternative, which does not require a licensing fee that cannot be financed by a non-profit team. Because it would be illogical based on our game's camera, the engine does not support 3D sounds. It could, in theory, be implemented, but we've decided not to include it in the release of 0 A.D.

Have someone already said that it would be incredible if you created a strategic map? Like a World Map such as the Total War series?

Aiye Beren&Luthien;,

a huge world map will get into 0 B.C. which is more like Total War, Settlers & NeverWinterNights than Age of Empires.

It's a dynamic campaign mode.

Hi. I think 0 AD might focus more towards campaigns, like AoE and the like. A World Map feature could or could not be included lateron.

Maybe such a feature could be intergrated in 0BC Time Machine more easily? Check it out.
