The Ancient Age is a Total Conversion Mod for Age Of Empires III TAD about the Ancient Times, which will be made by Tilanus Commodor & Ca Putt. Almost everyone of us started just with a minor basic knowledge, but we are developing ourselves. The Ancient Age is not an Age Of Mythology or Age Of Empires I Remake. Nevertheless the Age Of Empires Series is among other RTS-Games a true inspiration for us.


It is our aim to include five new civilisations: The Carthaginians, Celts, Hellenes, Persians and Romans. Besides we are willed to develop an unique gameplay, which will be a good contrast to other mods and the original game. This includes for example a new building & unit system. Since the modification's setting takes place in a completely different age you can expect a lot of new material. More details will be revealed when the time is better.

Realization of 'The Ancient Age'

Even if there is already a new active team, we'd like to extent the amount of workers to speed up the process of production. Therefore we are looking for new ambitious members, who want to learn fast and work practically.

We appreciate every new interested request, even if we have to refuse some people, they tried it and had the good intention to help us.

PS: I don't know what you tried to do with the Age4 Hellenic Docks, but it doesn't look quite right.

Thanks rob, I got your mail. I'll include the loader in the next release, will it also install the files into the My Games directory?

Already fixed the dock. =)
------------------------------------------------

I decided to replace the Etruscan Hoplite - which was an Roman archaic unit in age 1 - with a more accurate unit. You know, the Etruscans were indeed Rome's enemies, so this doesn't really make sense to have enemies available for recruitment. Check out the new one!



The Italic Ensiferus (pl. ensiferi) is a heavy swordsman coming from any place of the italic peninsula. The name derives from the latin word ensifer which means 'sword-carrying'. His panoply is influenced by Hellenes, he uses a kopis blade, wears linen armour (linothorax) reinforced with scale metal plates and carries a painted shield (aspis).

Swords were actually not as common as spears back then when Rome was still a kingdom, but several italic tribes already deployed great swordsmen and the rising power in italy - Rome - hired, adopted them and then improved this type of hand-to-hand combat for their own sake.

In TAA the Italic Ensiferus serves as excellent infantry counter, who's also blessed with a bonus against other archaic units. However, his services are not for free, indeed the Ensiferus is an expensive unit that exacts for food and money!

I'm sorry I haven't been able to test it properly, but the Mod Loader is programmed to change both the Program Files and My Games directories.

PS: The Ensiferus looks great!
