Ironclad Expansion Mod

Author File Description
File Details
Game Version: TWC
When ES came out with the War Chiefs I was very disappointed to learn that the ironclad unit, unlike other ships, did not have any random names. I have therefore attempted to remedy the situation. The Ironclad Expansion Mod combines real and historically accurate Union and Confederate ironclad names from the United States Civil War for a total of 87 ironclad random names. The ironclad unit will now have random names like any other AoEIII ship. Installation instructions are included with the mod. Enjoy.

dr nefarious Not a bad idea, BUT: How exactly will those historically accurate AMERICAN names fit with, say, Peruvian ironclads?

Well if you've got some Peruvian (or whatever) ironclad names send 'em to me and I'll be happy to put them in.
dr nefarious That doesn't solve the problem. The ironclads from ALL revolutionary nations will use the same list of names, which make it absurd to strife for "historical accuracy". You'll get a Peruvian "Merrimack" just as likely as an American "Loa", both not making much sense.
I think it's a good idea to add names for the ironclads, but you should have gone for more generic names instead of your US-only approach.

Well my friend, if you know how to do what you propose tell me how to do it, or better yet make a mod doing it yourself. Until then, well, no one's forcing you to download this one.
dr nefarious Well, as you can't seem to figure out how to achieve your goal of "historical accuracy" you could for example look for a set of names which might make sense for all european civilizations. Heros from greek mythology come to mind - even Russians and Ottomans knew those - but you might find something better suited for this. Until then, I'll definitely take your advice and won't use this mod. As I said, to come accross a peruvian "Merrimack" only makes the matter worse is in my mind.

Your objection is duly noted. We'll leave it at that I think.
Lord Tahattus dr nefarious, don't download then. DarkSaturos, I liked. His suggestion is good anyway, next time you should try to add names for all revolutionary nations, but it's still a great file! 87 names is really huge.

Thanks. I would have done that except it seems harder to do it for a revelutionary civilazation. I'll work on that though.
Lord Tahattus Yes, as far as i know, Haiti never had ironclads, did it?

I have no idea.
