Dark Ages - Rise of Islam ( HIATUS )

Recommended Posts

Hello There!

I love to make my own scenarios in my free time. while they might not be 100% accurate i still learn a lot from doing them while having fun. I am releasing this mod mainly so people can offer suggesting to it, or even help me out with events, cores, or other minor problems.

Here is the Scenario: The year is 640 Anno Domini, 8 years after the death of the Great Prophet Muhammad. Caliph Umar Ibn Al-Khattab is the current Caliph who is leading the war against the Byzantine and Sassanian Empires, The Byzantines have lost parts of Egypt and Jerusalem, Yet they still retain control over Africa and Anatolia. This is the major turning point in History, Will this world follow the Real World's footsteps and have Islam conquer Africa and Persia or will the world see a new Alternative history with new Empires taking over the Story?

Europe As of Now

Middle East/Asia as of now20190109003419_1.thumb.jpg.70227fc4b165810918413f2e5786958b.jpg

Possible things to be done.

  • Add in Custom Leaders - Umar - Rashidun, Rothari - Lombardy, Ect.
  • Work on spawning in various tribes / kingdoms as the game goes on.
  • Rise of the Kingdom of Asurias
  • The Umayyad Caliph Collapse and the Abbasids Rise
  • Alternate history where Rashidun Caliph stays in power

Current Features

  • A new Government
  • Currently there is a expansion event For Rashidun Conquest on Persia and Africa
  • Rise of the Umayyad Caliphate and the Expansion under its time.
  • various nomadic tribes can migrate - to be expanded upon later

The Download

I personally think that it doesnt matter if a scenario is not very accurate,what it really matters is  the fun that you get from creating it/playing it

Yes i know, they are the syr-tardush - or the Xueyantuo were situated north of the Tang Dynasty. They are also Kirgihz and some Mongolian tribes but i cant find a good map that goes deep into detail about them-

Currently there are only 3 custom countries and i plan to add more, as you clearly have noticed Xiongnnu but there are also Hungarians, which should be named Magyr, and cumans that don't belong.

I'll release another updated version with more countries tommorow, and i plan to add some more events spawning countries in later this week.

Hello everyone, i have posted a small update as of today.

-Images for the events involving the Jihads against Persia / Eastern Roman Empire

-Events to help the Umayyad A.I help take out the Rashidun ( It only post some challenge to players, as the A.I in this game is way to passive even with big advantages. i found no problem taking out the Umayyads as long as you prevent them from advancing )

- Bulgarian and Hungarian Migration events to get out of the Caucuses

-Some events detailing the fall of Africa for the Roman Empire - Giving them a small boost in population

I know its not a huge update, but i plan to keep adding things into the mod until i find it Complete. My current objective is to set up Events all the way up to 800 A.D ( over 500 turns of gameplay ). Afterwards the map gets really messy as is so that's where i plan to finish the mod.

Umayyads are looking pretty Thicc 250 turns in.

The Ummayyad Caliphate was named of the arabic tribe of the bani ummayya. It was named so because of the 5. caliph Muawiya ibn abi suyfan. If you want to add event up to 800 ad you need to add the revolution of the abbassids too. But i dont know why lucasz added those flags with the moon. they never used something like this. But i think the rashidun caliphate is a little bit too strong because of the events like prophets army

Hey Abu Muawiya,

I agree with you about the Rashidun Caliphate being Overpowered, However that is because the A.I is very passive in attacking the Sassanians. If they do not take enough land fast enough in the first 50 turns, then Both Byzantines and Sassanian's  would be at war with them and without player guidance they usually fall easily.

However i will add in events that only trigger with players holding either the Sassanian Empire or the Rashidun Caliphate so it won't be as easy as it is now to just roll over them.

Thank you for the input and the Information about the Umayyads.

Hello Balamber,

The map for Western Europe is largely undone, Thanks for pointing out Theodosia ( as i was tired when mapping that out and completely forgot about it later. ), Altais is in Africa because there was a Roman-Beber city state their Called Altava. Both their flags are Similar enough, but ill add it in next update ( which will be coming out this week ).

The things i am doing as of Now

  • Redrawing the map for India and Europe, as they are both Inaccurate to some degree ( harsha's Empire should be the Sthanishvara Empire aswell as adding in more fractured British Isles Kingdoms ( the Angles and Saxons are there for a placeholder just like Atlais was for in Africa ).
  • Making the Civs to go with the proper era
  • Doing events for Umayyad Conquest of Ibera.
  • Alternate History events in-case Rashidun Caliphate fail their Jihads.

When these things are Finished ill release the Update, and Thank you for pointing out those mistakes.

Hello Everyone,

As of Now Dark Ages v1.3 is out, The main features are a map-work of the Britain and Scandinavia and Tweaking of Events for making an Alternate History in your game.

20190109003348_1.thumb.jpg.276c809092e315bd1788521f22c4ad09.jpg

The game did not have the Kingdoms of Deira, Lindsey or East Anglia ( though thankfully it has thousands of other civilizations, thank you Lucas for your hard work ), these Civs have been added in so that they fit the current Era ( Northumbria and Anglo-Saxons just didn't fit in being in the isles at this time ).

20190109003402_1.thumb.jpg.9ab579ab03991edafb61027109a37f18.jpg

As you can see, there is no longer 3 mega tribes taking vast swaths of the map, instead their are smaller costume civilizations gathered around in the region.

The other Features

  • Players now have the option to play as Sassanians and survive. If you survive until around turn 45, you have successfully Beaten back the Umayyad Empire out of Persia and Mesopotamia.
  • If you are playing as the Byzantines, you will get no bonuses to help aid you in fighting off the Rashidun ( you are the #1 power afterall ) however if you do manage to force them out of Egypt-Palestine you will get a Event allowing you to re-take back the land that was lost.
  • Some context has been added onto the reason the Umayyad Caliphate is revolting against the Rashidun - Basically you have the option to let Mu'awiya  take power, as he did historically, forming the Umayyad Caliphate or you have the option to Appoint Hasan Abn Ali, The grandson of Muhammad, as the Caliph sparking a civil war ( The historical one is very Overpowered as the Umayyad are powerful enough without the bonuses ).
  • In the event that Both Jihads against Persia and Byzantium fail the Rashidun caliphate will face collapse.Sad.thumb.png.390bc4230822a03e5350823c6b1f38d1.png

That is most of the features for this version of Dark Ages, i'm hoping that within the next 2 we will get into the Abbasid Revolution

P.S ignore the sandbox mode lol, i just wanted to make sure the event worked properly.

Yes, next update is currently planned for Sunday 1/13/19. The current work being done is

  • Working on the Turkish Khagnate and its fracture ( with Kanger Union and Khazaria breaking off, so another Custom civ needs to be added )
  • Invasion of Southern France by Umayyads ( Might not even happen if Rashidun collapse )
  • Adding in decisions for Byzantines to give the Spanish Isles or face war ( will send a letter to the Byzantines to accept it or not, so players have the option to go to war, but there will be no peace event for this )
  • Add in peace events for the Asturias so they can survive
  • Add in the Abbasid Revolution

 After this update is out, i will start to mop up the Events Muslim side of the world while putting in pictures for the current events. Finally after that is all done i will add in Events for Europeans. Like the Lombards taking over Italy, the Unification of Francias, Bulgars invasion on the Balkans ect.

The umayyad didnt revolt. Muawiya was just the next caliph

Indeed, if the the Rashidun are left to the A.I then they will always let Muawiya become caliph. The other option is to let Hasan Ibn Ali become caliph ( the grandson of the Prophet ) and continue on as the Rashidun. Its just an Alternative History Option, The only options forced on you is the initial conquest of Persia and Africa you can decline the other wars that follow.

Hello Everyone, The New Update is out! with the focus on France and the Abbasid Revolution.

The Frankish kingdoms united when Neustria declared war on Austrasia in 678 A.D. The war was mainly backed by the Carolingian Dynasty and Ended with the Unification of Francia. At this time Austrasia had gone to war many times ( though they allied against outside forces ). However to make this as simple as possible ( and because event peace deals only taking 3-5 provinces is BS as is ) you will only need to occupy a big majority of their country. Once that is done an event will fire and you will form the country of francias.

20190113010915_1.thumb.jpg.bb301be7d5772c3851537212276798a5.jpg

Under the hands of a good player, you can make Francias a Superpower in Europe ( as it was historically )

20190113004018_1.thumb.jpg.9cea703c1c7ac9a44de784f9d6c11fca.jpg

Note the picture above is a different save when i annexed Aquitaine first before the Visigoths had a chance.

20190113004021_1.thumb.jpg.c9105c01ca8ed52526a536919940dee8.jpg

The next part of the Update covered the Abbasid Revolution. The Abu Muslims were Discontent with the way the Umayyads were Ruling, So they took upon open Revolt in 747 A.D carrying a black crest as their banner, and they eventually overthrew Umayyads rule in the Middle East and put the Abbasid Dynasty in Power.

Umayyads have 2 options. Opt for peace and be thrown out of the Middle East ( only added this option in-case you were riddled with losing wars right now, A.I will never take this path )

Or Subjugate the rebels, There is only 1 Peace event and it favors the Abbasid. you will have the conquer back whatever provinces you lost in a real peace-deal.

20190113010145_1.thumb.jpg.e478f2eae3c302d7145842333c463a28.jpg

Pictures have been added to the majority of the Events. Starting now Updates will be focusing on Europe ( unless there are problems you find in the Muslim side of the world that i can fix )

      Hi, I had nothing to do, so I did a scene of the French revolution!
       
      Any mistakes tell me in the comments, as sometimes I didn't have civilization to put in the right place, so I improvised in some parts ...
      It is recommended that you use the Addon + mod to not have any flaws.

      2- Extract with WINrar
      3- Place the folder in: Age of civilizations / map / earth + / scenario (place there)

      “And so it was the the Dawn of an Era, where as some nations may find their place in the sun, others would simply fall into darkness”
      Scenarios and Mods involving the famous 1830~ start date are pretty common, but even so, I wanted to try my hand at it. Being sincere, I’m posting this W.I.P since I’ve already lost all my progress once, and recently half of it too, so for it to not be another dead project, I wanted to at least show it, and search for some help on the forum.
      Anyway, getting back on track, one of the objectives of this so called mod was to “cover” the number of uncolonized/neutral provinces that appeared on most Victorian Age scenarios, and so with this, one could prevent the “Implausable colonizers”, (such as having early Qing colonies on the coast of Africa, or vice-versa, provinces that should be colonized being barren of any owner until really late on the game, such as provinces on the middle of North America), but most importantly, to give the possibility to the player to play as obscure but historical states or people’s which weren’t represented already on the game, this counts specially for regions such as Southern Africa, the Patagonian region, the Caucasus, Indonesia, Central Asia, etc.  
      So with this in mind, the player has more options on how to play the game, changing a little bit the structure for colonization, etc.
      RELEASE: The Released version down here is a Beta of the project. It still has some errors which need correction, but I decided to release it in the hopes of receiving feedback.
      ANDROID VERSION: 
      https://drive.google.com/file/d/17Ik8gs7n7Xb5j8ApQtrLHaVL162b0Z8_/view?usp=sharingT
      PC VERSION: Soon...
      THE WORLD MAP SO FAR:
      UPDATED (December 24th 2020-Android Version):

      UPDATED (December 3rd 2020):


      OLD (July 2020):

      *Keep in mind, a lot of things are subject to change*
      Miscellaneous Pics: 











      (THE IMAGES ABOVE ARE OLD SCREENSHOTS. FOR NEWER ONES, READ THE THREAD. I'LL EVENTUALLY UPDATE SOME  OF THE ABOVE.)
      Implemented Features:
      -New flags for various nations -270+ New Nations (and counting!) -Alternative flags and name for different ideologies of a nation (Example: "Tigray" being "Lordship of Tigray" as a monarchy or the "Tigray People's Democratic Republic" with the socialist ideology). More and revamped formable nations.
      Planned Features: 
      More nations (since there's still incomplete parts of the world such as India or Central Africa). A new type of ideology: "traditional state", specially designed for states which aren't tribal, but still have a chiefdom type of organization. Changes on the name of some things: "Vassal state" to "Satellite State", etc. Change the name of "Diseases", to represent "Situations", depending on the year. (Ex: "minor nationalist uprising" starting on 1844 or  "medium labour strike", etc). More Scenarios [ *Just ideas, probably not all of them* ]: "The revolutions of 1848", "The Crimean War(1853)", "1857", "1860", "Winds of Unification: 1865", " La Belle Époque (1871)", "1879", "The Great Scramble(1884)", "Sino-Japanese war: 1894", "1900", "Administrative divisions of 1900", "Moroccan Crisis: 1905". [There could be scenerios up to 1939, but with this ideas is probably more than enough for now]. New UI. More provinces and , wishfully, a new map background. Events (not for all scenarios though).
      Thanks for reading all of this.
      PD: If anyone wants to help with this project, contact me through this account.
