Introduction to "Age of Blades":
First of all: AoB is a multiplayer
mod. There's no singleplayer-function.
In MP most things work like in Native. All common game-modes should work as usual.
You choose your faction between "Blue -
" and "Red Kingdom
Then you are asked to select a building. At different building, different troops are available.Barracks
have infantry, Stable
has cavalry, Archery Range
has ranged units and Monastery
only has the Monk.
After choosing a building you have to buy a troop instead of equipment
. The troops prices are displayed.
Troops have preset equipment to represent the "Age of Empires 2" units.
Instead of levelling down equipment if you don't have enough money, your troop is downgraded
along the trooptree.
Every building (except for the Monastery) has a free-troop, which is the lowest you can be downgraded to.Downgrading example:
You want to be a Paladin, but have 0 gold.
Paladin->Chavalier->Knight (lowest troop of this kind)->Light Cavalry->Scout Cavalry (free-troop of the Stable)Exception:
The Monk is the only Monastery troop, but no free-troop. If you choose to be monk without having enough money, you'll
be downgraded to infantry-units.Monks
are automatically healing
allied troops in a set range. If you're healing someone a message is displayed.
are available via different key-combinations:
"Q"+"4" = "Wololoo"
"Q"+"5" = "Nice town, I'll take it!"
"Q"+"6" = "You played 2 hours to die like this?"
"Q"+"7" = "Long time no siege."
"Q"+"8" = "Yes."
"Q"+"9" = "All hail, king of the loosers!"
"Q"+"U" = "My granny could scrap better than that."
"Q"+"I" = "Monk, I need a monk!"
"Q"+"O" = "Don't point that thing at me!"
"Q"+"P" = "It is good to be the king!"
"Q"+"K" = "Rogan?!"
You should disable sound variation
in the starting menu at audio-configurations
to avoid weird-sounding taunts.
To guarantee that troops only use valid equipment (and no Archer picks up a Paladin-shield...) picking up dropped items has
for everything except arrows. So don't drop your weapons
if you still want to use it!Check out the moddb-page of Age of Blades!Troops:
