Age of History Games

Recommended Posts

(As somebody was recently punished for making a similar statement, I am using an alt to say this.)
I've been thinking about the state of the AoH community. Back in April, AoC2ModdingTR shut down. Just recently, Mineva lost the code for Ultimate Overhaul rendering it a dead mod. Three days ago, Terrk announced that he's moving on from AoH2 modding. And during that period, many smaller mods came and died without being recognized. It is clear that the AoH community is in an age darker than any other. Therefore, after some careful consideration, I have decided:

Every mod is reaped.

Every mod, whether dead, alive, or in development hell, is now reaped. If the mod is dead, it is dead. If the mod is alive, it is doomed to die eventually. If the mod is in development hell, well... just look at the Addon SC thread. As the community continues to shrink and more modders abandon their projects, all the remaining active mods will find their player bases dwindling. It appears that AoH2's mods are fated to die with AoH2 itself.

But even if all the mods are dying, some people are taking it a step further and making their own games! Simon has been working on a game for ages, and Mineva and Valixor have similar plans. Moreover, there are games in the works like Grey Eminence and Espiocracy which not only have far more depth and polish than AoH2 has ever had, but also support for user-generated content. As a matter of fact, I actually discovered GE because of Terrk mentioning it in his Discord! Kerem is also interested in it, as are many other members of the community. With so many new strategy games to look forward to, AoH is facing some serious competition.

So unless Lukasz pulls AoH3 out of a hat, the future appears grim for AoH and the community. Many PC players will start to move away from AoH2, including most of the modders who will start developing for games like Grey Eminence instead. This will also affect the Android side of the community, as they will run out of new mods to play and may get bored quickly without any updates to the existing ones. And with many bugs and errors in AoH itself, along with a lack of support from Lukasz, all these issues will add up to a major crisis for AoH going forward.

So unfortunately, every mod for AoH2 has to be reaped. Our community is dying and being assimilated into other communities. To those who won't be able to play games like Simon's game, Grey Eminence, or a Paradox game, all I wish for you is to have fun with whatever AoH2 mods remain in active development. For someday, they will all die too.

As much as I hate to admit it you're right. AoH2 is the closest thing to a paradox game for mobile devices but it's so bland, unpolished and just repeatitive. That's not devaluing Lukas' efforts or any other mod. I can't mod or create a game myself since I don't own a PC and even if I do it's not a easy thing to pull off. And as much as I would like a AoH3, I hardly believe it'll be so much better than 2 to the point it'll revive the community for more than a month or two. Addon ASC is basically the AoH2's last ditch effort to stay alive. And let's say it succeeds, which probably(or hopefully) it will, how long will that success last? Hopefully enough time till Lukas actually makes a better successor game

(Edit:That's also not saying Italien PeC is doing a bad job. Age of Imperialism is, to this day, the best mod for AoH2. If not the number 1 option it's easily in the top 5 list)

I really didn't know I thought it was break. Jeez now literally the only hope we have is Addon SC. Let's hope they don't screw it up.

(Como alguien fue castigado recientemente por hacer una declaración similar, estoy usando un alt para decir esto).
He estado pensando en el estado de la comunidad de AoH. En abril, AoC2ModdingTR cerró. Recientemente, Mineva perdió el código de Ultimate Overhaul y lo convirtió en un mod muerto. Hace tres días, Terrk anunció que dejaría de modificar AoH2. Y durante ese período, muchos mods más pequeños llegaron y murieron sin ser reconocidos. Está claro que la comunidad de AoH está en una era más oscura que cualquier otra. Por lo tanto, después de una cuidadosa consideración, he decidido:

Cada mod se cosecha.

Cada mod, ya sea muerto, vivo o en el infierno de desarrollo, ahora se cosecha. Si el mod está muerto, está muerto. Si el mod está vivo, está condenado a morir eventualmente. Si el mod está en desarrollo, bueno... solo mira el hilo Addon SC. A medida que la comunidad continúa reduciéndose y más modders abandonan sus proyectos, todos los mods activos restantes verán que sus bases de jugadores se reducen. Parece que las modificaciones de AoH2 están destinadas a morir con AoH2.

¡Pero incluso si todas las modificaciones están muriendo, algunas personas están dando un paso más y creando sus propios juegos! Simon ha estado trabajando en un juego durante mucho tiempo y Mineva y Valixor tienen planes similares. Además, hay juegos en proceso como Gray Eminence y Espiocracy que no solo tienen mucha más profundidad y pulido que AoH2, sino que también son compatibles con el contenido generado por el usuario. De hecho, ¡descubrí GE porque Terrk lo mencionó en su discordia! Kerem también está interesado en él, al igual que muchos otros miembros de la comunidad. Con tantos juegos de estrategia nuevos que esperar, AoH se enfrenta a una competencia seria.

Entonces, a menos que Lukasz saque a AoH3 de un sombrero, el futuro parece sombrío para AoH y la comunidad. Muchos jugadores de PC comenzarán a alejarse de AoH2, incluida la mayoría de los modders que comenzarán a desarrollar juegos como Gray Eminence. Esto también afectará al lado de Android de la comunidad, ya que se quedarán sin nuevas modificaciones para jugar y pueden aburrirse rápidamente sin ninguna actualización de las existentes. Y con muchos errores y fallas en AoH, junto con la falta de soporte de Lukasz, todos estos problemas se sumarán a una gran crisis para AoH en el futuro.

Entonces, desafortunadamente, cada mod para AoH2 debe ser cosechado. Nuestra comunidad está muriendo y siendo asimilada a otras comunidades. Para aquellos que no podrán jugar juegos como el juego de Simon, Gray Eminence o un juego de Paradox, todo lo que les deseo es que se diviertan con cualquier modificación de AoH2 que permanezca en desarrollo activo. Porque algún día, todos ellos morirán también.

Lately the only live mods I see are Russian and they are on VK

You can see the mod on Tech Loky to try it out, I'm using it stably and it seems safer than others. This website also updates many new mods very quickly, so you don't have to wait long to experience.🥰🥰
