Age of History 3

Starting work one of the best and most painful to make maps I've ever seen

Recommended Posts

Sorry for a lack of updates, I've mostly been focusing on school but I am making a province map for the mod to used in the map editor


I've mainly been having problems with the image size maps have to be in AoC2, everytime I shrink the map it just gets distorted so it would be very helpful if any of you could maybe find a way to make the map size in AoC2 larger

So for now this will be just discussing this monster of a map and what I should include when I make it in AoC 2, sadly I will have to shrink it a bit since it is a little too big.

here is a link to the original post by Ilovethisgame2

Looks like first and second order area boundaries and Robinson projection. I should be able to recreate this in QGIS and set the dpi to at least 300. It will be a huge file.

Checked this morning. I had a bit of time before for I have I to take the daughter to school. So I have country boundaries and first order area (foa) boundaries (province/state/governorate etc.) but I don't have a second order area (soa) boundaries shapefile which the topic map is clearly of. I just downloaded a second order area shapefile but it turned out to be a point file. I have some second order area shapefiles for some countries, but I'll have to retrieve others. I think I'll concentrate the big countries since the little ones already have tiny foa boundaries. Below is a quick-low res screenshot to show you where I am at currently.

I found SOA boundaries and even some third order on GADM. I don't have the time to do them all at once. I did some of the big countries, saved my project and exported it See attached. This is 300 dpi and looks like it is 2+ megs. Let me know how it looks when you zoom it. I can ramp up the resolution. Looks like 14.5 MB is my attachment limit on this forum.

I shifted the outline from .26 to .05 and upped the dpi to 1000 in addition to adding some more countries. Zooming it looks a lot better. Might decrease the outline further, and of course will keep adding countries currently displaying SOA. I tried uploading 1100 and 1200 dpi but despite being under the upload limit it won't take. Anyway this is much improved, but I'll keep working.

    • AoH3 – Help with translation of the Game
      Hi, I need your help translating the Age of History 3 to your native language.
      Your translation into your native language would be very helpful! ❤️

      In the attachment is a file with new texts in the game to be translated.

      How to make translation:

      In the file there is list of texts in the game

      The Left side is the key, do not change it!

      The right side of each line after = is the translation to your language




      ChooseAnAdvisorToHire = Choose an Advisor to Hire

      ChooseAnAdvisorToHire is the key, don't change it


      Correctly made translation:

      ChooseAnAdvisorToHire = Your translated text
      ClickToHireAnAdvisor = Your translated text
      ClickToFireAnAdvisor = Your translated text


      ShiftClickToInvestXTimes = Shift + Click to invest {0} times

      In the place of {0} will be placed number or text

      PerformTheActionXTimes = Perform the action {0,choice,0#{0} times|1#{0} time|1<{0,number,integer} times}



      For now the game is translated to: Only English language!

    • Events - Common events for every civilization in the game
      in this topic, I am interested in your ideas for events that can happen for every Civilization in the game.
      I'm also interested in Missions for every Civilization.

      Here is some example, have more than 10k army, have more than 5000 gold, build 10 buildings, recruit an Advisor, increase tax efficiency 20 times, be largest  producer of some resource in the world, unlock 5 Civilization legacies etc.

    • Land units - Ideas AoH3
      AoH3 will have different types of land units.

      In this topic we will write ideas for new land units. 


      So the AoH 3 will have new battle system.

      Representation of the battlefield in the game.

      Land units will be grouped into 3 types. Each unit will have a different recruitment cost, attack, defense, movement speed and upkeep.

      Groups determine the placement of units on the battlefield.


      Each unit can be unlocked by researching technology and then upgraded.


      Here is the current list of units with upgrades:

      First line:

      Warrior -> Light Footmen -> Heavy Infantry -> Infantry -> Line Infantry -> Modern Infantry

      Hoplites -> Spearmen -> Pikeman -> Elite Pikeman -> Musketeer -> Riflemen -> Mechanized Infantry -> Modern Mechanized Infantry

      First line side:

      Horseman -> Elite Horseman -> Cavalry -> Tank -> Modern Tank

      Second line:

      Archer -> Bowmen -> Crossbowman -> Elite Crossbowman

      Canon -> Field Cannon -> Artillery -> Modern Artillery

      Early Airplane -> Airplane -> Modern Airplane


      This is a very early version, so maybe something should be changed?

      Or maybe an idea for a new type of unit with upgrades? I'm waiting for your suggestions.
