I know about the lake of blood and i like it, but i think the game should have something to focus on Napoleon, maybe a new campaign or a mini campaign about the conquering Napoleon did in europe

Napoleon Campaign is more centralized and has to do fully with the game, I haven`t played EE2 so I can`t say much about your idea

Actually, to involve all civs in campaigns in a fun and interesting way, it would take several campaigns. Furthermore set in different times. It is one thing I dislike with campaigns, they are always predetermined. I want the possibility to choose from every nation, and lern something from every nation's point of view. And for some reason I never really liked Napoleon.

well the ee2 campaing has a extremely long timeline and is centralised arround the Teutonic order in poland and later Prussia, although units like the teutonic knight and the exitance of a polish civ would ake this possible i personally would preffer a 7 years war continental version as a prussian campaign. campaigns with a VERY long timeline tend to become to formal(one thing i always hated about EE). In most other RTS(WC3, C&C, AoM, rise of legends, Stronghold, LotR, aok, starcraft...) games the timeline of a campaign is within a lifetime or maybe two this puts the focus on specific persons rather than on whole people and furthermore gives the player someone to (at least remotely) identefy with(Athas, the commander, Arkantos, Giacamo, aragorn, Attila the hun, jim raynor, or at least some nameless hero/ruler)

ps, yes i just checked though my game shelf Mr. Green

@SAOL : if you find enouth Scen desiners, there might aswell be a campaign for every civ, if Razz

What is the probability? How slim is it? The thickness of a layer graphene?

i'm not entirely shure about the present situation amung the scenario designers for aoe3. but you can either find them here
or here

well there are some even some good ones but afaik the aoe3 scen designe community is much smaller than the aom one(even tho aom is real old) probably due to the bugged and rather stiff editor. funny enouth, both actually have the same editor. but they did not adapt it fully to aoe3(just the XP native and herd stuff) and cutt some fun features.

Since Napoleon had such great armies, concider this:

Buildings don't produce troops, but upgrades, and All your forces are called in as regiments of large numbers thus you can call in up to maybe four hundred men...or more.

I am really flatternd that you try to help me, Ca_Putt (sorry for my childish behaviour). But really, I am not that fond of scenarios anyway. I rarely play them.

Here's an actual idea for a campaign: Continue with historical fiction, like ES did.

Basic storyline: A criminal (enter name) from the United States is punished by being forced to serve on a trade ship with a brutal captain. The captain is making a profit off of the Napoleonic wars, trading with both sides, especially with England and France. (American traders during this time period actually did this, and it was the leading cause of the war of 1812)
When they have just successfully made a trade with England and are heading towards France, they are attacked by a French frigate. The captain is killed during the single broadside. In an attempt to fight back, the main character kills the frigate's officer. The trade ship is seized, and its crew forced to serve on it. For his "murder" of the officer, the main character is put in the brig.
The frigate sails back to France, and the main character is brought off of the ship to be tried for killing the officer. Being an escape artist, he escapes(duh). Afterwards, wanted posters are put up. A minstrel who disagrees with Napoleon's ambitions escorts him out of Paris. The main character is informed on the Napoleonic wars, and joins the Prussian army to oppose Napoleon's whacky ambitions(another duh).
He gets his first taste of battle, fights in some other battles, and at Waterloo, etc, etc, etc.
At the end of the campaign, he is a changed man.

The reason why I didn't give much detail is because I don't know a lot about Napoleonic battles, and I like to put things in a nutshell.

Please respond and share your thoughts.

...What if we just make a somewhat fictional storyline follow the main events of the Napoleonic era? an English Captain Leads his men through India, Spain, the Americas and alas Waterloo. It will be fun to see Actual History even though we use a fictional character.

both of your ideas are good, but why not simplify amelia`s idea, maybe a french, or a british war prisoner, for not having say all that and make it somehow more realistic, although your idea is realistic, what are the chances of that chain of events, would really come to pass, maybe the guy would just end in jail, before being sent to work in a ship

Lets just use Captain Sharpe lol , He is a man that becomes a RedCoat and makes a name for himself in India, and then he becomes a part of the English Riflemen and goes up the ranks (which was impossible for an ordinary soldier back then) and goes through all the books adventures:

The first book, He was transfered to a Rifle Regiment, they are slaughtered, and he has to lead the remaining 50 or so to safety, but the British are retreating, the French Cavalry persue them and he must help a brave Spanish Captain and his Cassadors attain a 'Special Weapon' to defeat the Cuirassiers whom are lead by Captain who want this weapon as a prize (it was a banner that wa said to bring the Spanish Victory).

Second Book, Sharpe is promoted to Captain, which pisses off everyone else in the upper ranks. The General of the South Essex leads the regiment alongside a Spanish regiment to blow up some bridges, they fail, their ranks are dismantled and Sharpe leads the few to victory. Later, The disgraced general has to fight in an epic battle along side the greater allied forces (Britih and German Forces), Sharpe has to lead his riflemen against the German Skirmishers (clad in white) who fight for the French. The British army is barely winning (the cause nearly lost because The General of the South Essex tries to abandon the British army along with his regiment) and Sharpe leads the riflemen and some other troops into the Battered German Skirmishers in order to attain the Gold Eagle.
