11:59: A Cold War Mod.
11:59 was one of the first pioneering mods for Age of Civilisations II, released just six days after the launch of the game. Intent on quality instead of quantity, the mod was built with the ultimate aim of achieving a cold war experience unlike any other. After well over a year of work, we decided to take a break from the modding scene due to Lukasz's continual refusal to update the game in a meaningful way. We've decided to revisit the mod, and we've made improvements on the original content released months ago.
Current PC mod development is led by Vis, a web developer, designer, cartographer, artist and ex-Paradox modder.
Android development is led by Nine.

I've decided to continue making the 1960s scenario mod using the already existing addon+ mod. Why? Well funny story, on Saturday I downloaded the mod out of curiosity, however I did not expect it to fully wipe all my game progress. This includes the 1960 scenario data. So, I had to remake the entire thing, which took awhile, but I did it. Thankfully, all the custom leaders survived, but things like the custom ideologies I added are gone. Luckly, I have them saved in the scenario mod folder, but I'll have to find a way to reintegrate them into the game.
Heres some screenshots of what the scenario looks like now
I have decided to include more ideologies in this mod in order to make it more historically accurate among other features.
Heres a few screenshots showing off the new ideologies.
The new Ideologies that will be included are
Some other ideologies that I plan to include and are still working on are
- Titoism (For Yugoslavia)
- Juche (For North Korea)
- Burmese Socialism (For Burma)
- Hoxhaism (For Albania)
To add more flare to these ideologies, I will also be including unique alternate flags for these ideologies that some countries will have. Not all will have unique flags for every ideology, but some will.
These flags will all be custom made by me.
In addition to all this, I'll also be adding more releasable nations to the scenario such as all 50 US states and the Canadian provinces.
As for a release date, I can't say but just know it will be done sometime this year.
Heres some mod progress:
Scenario itself - Done
Cores - Half Done
Leaders - Still Working on it!
Ideologies - Half Done
Flags - Still Working on it!
Events - Still Working on it!
