How to make a custom overlay.

Recommended Posts

I've tested out if i could add another symbol for the civilization creator flags and... i was shocked!

It worked!!!

So... you need to get an custom image. Then make it so its 44 pixels wide and 44 pixel high [ Can be highier or lower but change the scale of it in overlays.json file so its not too big or too small ] and save it as png and call it the next number from overlays so its lile - "overXXX"

X are numbers

The amount of overlays in AOH II is 116, so 117 will work but if you wanna add more than 117 then you need to call them a number bigger than 117.

 

When you are done creating overXXX / over117 then go to the local files of AOC II and go to game --> flags_editor.

 

You will need to put the overlay to the overlays folder.

 

Well... the game uses code to define whenever there is or there's not an overlay so you will need to edit overlays.json

 

go to the bottom of the .json and make sure it is in exact order as the other ones

Do not use space! Tab is the one for the coding spacing!

When done properly, you are done! Just test it if it works and make sure you viewed all of the overlays.

O and colorization works aswell! needs to have white symbols and not colored one cuz it may break?

    • Events - Common events for every civilization in the game
      Hi,
      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.

       
    • Age of History 3 - Buildings ideas
      Your ideas can become part of the game, in this topic we will write ideas for new buildings in Age of History 3.

       

      The buildings will be grouped into four categories:

      1. Administration

      2. Military

      3. Economy

      4. Unique capital buildings - These powerful buildings provide bonuses for the local province or for all provinces of your Civilization

       

      All of the buildings can be upgraded, here is example:

      Library -> University -> Academy

      Each building costs differently and gives different bonuses.

       

       

      This is what your building idea post should look like, example

       

      Building Group: Administration

      Name: Tax Office

      Cost: 60 Gold

      Construction Time: 90 Days

      Maintenance Cost: 0.2 gold per month

      The name of the technology that unlocks this building (Optional)

      And write here what bonuses this building provides. Example:

      Bonuses:

      Local Tax Efficiency: +10%

      Manpower per month: +25

       

      The same goes for building upgrades.

       

      The most important thing with new building ideas is to not stick to the old game, get creative and offer new bonuses not available in Age of History 2, and maybe new things and mechanics will be added to the game

       

      Template for the post:

       

      Building Group:

      Name:

      Cost:

      Construction Time:

      Maintenance Cost: 

      The name of the technology that unlocks this building:

      Bonuses:
