Age of Civilizations 2: Ultimate Overhaul
Development Re-Continues! Discord works!
Age of Civilizations is a game that focuses on grand strategy, politics and other government driven elements. Łukasz Jakowski however, included something in the game that is rare in other grand strategy games. Customization. Customizing civilizations, leaders, maps, Whole scenarios, events in these scenarios, etc, etc...
This, i think is a very good thing. The only bad thing about this, is that the game focuses more on the custom creative aspect than the realistic grand strategy one. This mod is going to be an overhaul for both these things.
Unfortunately, a mod with the same goals named Addon+ is being created right now. My mod is still in a Debug alpha phase, and i can't release it in a state like this.
This mod will include the following list of things:
Translated Loading Screens
Scenarios: The Great War (World War I) With historical events, leaders and custom civilizations, starting in 1st of January, 1914. (I've started doing it, The events are halfway done!)
Overhauling the World War II Scenario in the following ways:
Adding historical events with descisions.
Setting an other start time for the Scenario for better readiness.
Giving More corresponding bonuses to leaders given by their personality.
Scenario "Die Folge" (The aftermath) happening right after the first world war, (Yes, believe it or not, lots of stuff happened after the first world war) containing a variety of events.
Scenario "A Modern Mona Lisa" Containing the events of mostly Hitler taking control over germany (1920-1930). If you want to play as a country, that is falling apart at the moment, this is for you.
A Cold War Scenario is also being made, but i'm not promising anything for this one.
Including a large variety of backgrounds, from a realistic one with every little mountain on earth, to a low resolution one for computers that can't handle the mod that good.
From the leftist Communism the the Extreme right Fascism there are an estimate of ~15 ideologies being made right now including governments that are only avalible on 1 country in real life, or none anymore such as Patriotism (Hungary) Democratic Republic, Deposit Monarchy, so on and so forth. Planning on creating an election system for democratic countries just like in Hearts of Iron IV. Also, new flag overlays, and divisions, for the ones, that like to Roleplay out there! 😉
Yes, every Scenario, Custom Leader, Loading screen and such will be translated into other*1 languages.
Custom Maps will be added to the mod, with custom scenarios, so people can create something new on a new map. Current map plans include Hungary, Austria, Germany, Washington, Budapest and The map of Graz.
Of course, if we make scenarios, we need to make sure, that we have good leaders for each scenario. From a Revolutionary Gavrillo Princip to an alternative timeline Franz Ferdinand, there will be as much leaders as possible.
-There will be lots of new stuff in the game, as we just decompiled it. These new system include:
-More types of Vassals (Dominion, Colony, Crown Colony, State, Soviet Socialist State, etc, etc...)
-Democratic elections all four years, if the country is: Democratic, Republic, City State, Patriotism
-Ideological support system (See: hearts of iron 4) as you do your actions
-Changing the values of terrains, planning before war nescessary
-Adding seasons, each one having it's own effects on attacks, income and happiness
-Adding a "secret service" action, where up to 400 people can work on a specific assignment, such as:
Unit types, such as tanks, motorized infantry, and planes will be added.
Nuclear Bombs, that could make a province uninhabitable.
*1: Other: This mod will not be translated to all languages, as that would be pretty hard to make. If you'd like to translate to your own, come to our discord!
