I present you Ymir, a MMO currently in developpment (not public yet).
Roughly, picture a game like Caesar III or ANNO, but online like Stronghold Kingdoms, Travian, Ogame and with elements from Civilizations...
I beleive it would be the first real city builder online, where players get to create cities on unique big maps ( and not just a screen size where you can only place 10 buildings glued together) , and featuring a management complexity equivalent to the solo games.
Whereas actual MMOSTR games are extremely limited and basic, in Ymir you will get to create cities the size of Pharaoh, managing your population, your production, your workforce, your ressources, culture and technologies.
But in a fully online world where all your neighbours are other players : establish trade agreements, vassals, colonies, kingdoms, rise taxes, go to war and threaten the weak...

Here are some screenshots, where some elements will for sure look familiar to all the fans of Pharaoh

Intriguing. But my only concern looking at the screenshots is that they seem too closely zoomed-in. Will it be possible to zoom out to a larger view? Maybe 3-4 times larger? I don't mean a "satellite view," just some more buildings in the screen at one time, currently it seems a bit limited in this regard.

Hi Ronchon le Nain,

Ymir looks very interesting, I have posted your game in a list I made in this topic here in this forum.

Maybe you have seen the Indie Game Database which is a good way to generate more interest and show the progress of your games. Please share more details if you have the time.

Wow, what an interesting looking game.
Looks pretty awesome. :P

But I have one little concern with it, though. It's the map on the right corner. It's nothing but brown. Will it be possible to change that into a map that better represents the actual terrain of the city you're building?

But other than that, really good job.
