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.

11 taunts 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
been disabled
for everything except arrows. So don't drop your weapons if you still want to use it!

At first when I saw the title I was going to say there's already an AoE2 mod being developed, but the way your doing it sounds pretty ambitious and I'm sure it will be great if you complete it. Good luck  :grin:

Nostalgic indeed!  :grin:

AoE was the first game I really got into years ago. Ultimately, it sparked my interest in history, programming, and modding, among other things.  How great it was to be able to create your own maps/scenarios, and then bring and play them online -- with automatic file transfer!  Those are things not many games have even today.

Anyway, this sounds like quite a challenge, but I would love to see it done well!

PS. Remember when everyone in servers were running 56k, and pings of 600-900 were normal?  :mrgreen:

I have to see, what I can do, so please don't make the picutres, how the mod "could"
be, too clearly in your mind, to not get disappointed...
It won't BE Age of Empires II. The economy system will of course only work in single
player mode. The multiplayer will only feature AoEII units, you can play in Warband-style.

hope you finish it don't let this mod die good luck
Well even if I don't finish, I've written about 3000 lines code for the economy-stuff, I would
give to others modding to continue the work  :wink: ...but I'm still pretty motivated!

I like your mods, hope it will have new quests. :grin:

At the second pick, change food to Food. :wink:

Also, I recommend you, to use Polished Buildings mod, this pack fits very well with your mod.

factions?
I guess the first version of the mod will be "player with AoE-units against Calradia"
so, no different factions.
Later versions will change the Calradian Kingdoms to different AoE-cultures.

Hey Magnus, I'm making menus for the mod (2D art). You know, loading screens and on.

It looks very good! Have you got any picks of the M&B+AoE units?
