Agreed.
Tell me Tilanus, did you ever plan to add Axum? I know it's a little bit obscure, but hey, it was kind of important on that time, and Africa always seems to be ignored on this game. Sad

I'm sorry for my naivity, but I don't even know what Axum is. hmmmhh

The problem with africa is that the empires were sorta average. They had great empires, civilized and wealthy people, good soldiers, but they never really reached the extent and greatness similar to the Persian or Roman Empire or the Celtic and Hellenic culture.

Also: I guess I'm the wrong person for this. I try to get into this "alternative" type of history step by step, but I haven't touched a ground to stand on yet and for that reason and many other technical ones there will be no purely african civ in TAA.

Axum was basically primitive Ethiopia. Oh well at least I didn't suggest the Kingdom of Punt, of wich the only thing known is the name. Topmodel (and that they domesticated the camel it seems.)

I actually got a question: What do you mean by the Celts? thats a very vast civ Celt includes anything from Ireland to Thrace. I saw that the Gauls were denied, but will they be a Native Civ? and on that matter what will the native civs be?

How about if this mod become mini mod... just few main civilizations?

Romans (Julius Caesar)
Greeks (Alexander the Great)
Persians (Dareios III)
Egyptians (Kleopatra)
Phoenicians (Hannibal)

And random maps could have at least following natives (maybe civs later):

Hispanics
Gauls
Germans

Looks nice, but I think it would need some more natives.

And at least 6 civilizations.

I may not be active here but as I always insisted on using Celts instead of Gauls as Gauls are jsut the guys in France whereas Celts even "colonised" Asia minor(galatia) tho Tracians are not considered Celts btw.tho there also were Celts in that area.
that's the whole point, they all share a similar culture and thus can represent all Celtic tribes/ confederacies you can imagine(they are a bit off for Godiles tho)

in other words whereas only romans and Phonecians met Gauls, all planned civs met Celts and thus it's realisic to pit them against ech other Wink

@alex and Iliander: I do not know what you are talking about?!?!?! (this one is mainly @alex). there are only 5 civs planned and as AoE3 is not set in antiquity, even the current version is a total conversion mod thus not a mini mod. a minimod would be to add ... denmark or to change some unit stats.
there are already a lot of natives planned, I'm sure there even is a thread about it

and ps: Kleopatra was ruler of Ptolemaic egypt thus a successor kingdom of Big Al and thus not the same as the egypt of ramses and friends. apart from that egypt was no major power within the timeline and even under the ptolemaians a rather boring bunch.

Do not bother suggesting any new civilizations.

They will not be made. It is my understanding that we are hoping to get Rome, Greece and Persia in the final version. If, due to some miracle, we get these done and are still willing to work on TAA, I guess the Carthaginians and Celts are next on the list. (note: unless you are a talented modder who is willing to devote hours every day to TAA, there is not going to be a miracle.)

i see...but you should at least make a gaulish native civ. as far as natives go, you should include the picts and dacians too--they would be fun.

afair natives are made according to maps Arrow if someone (a RM scripter) does a britannia map then the picts willg et made, if he decides to make a Galilee map(not sure it that's planned) there's bound to be a native civ called Jews. in other words when someone makes a RM someone else will be working on realistic natives.

dacians have rather high priority here, pics lower priority unless someone makes a britannia map, dunno about gaulish natives personally I'd opt for celtic natives everywhere and include some gaulish features in the Celts Civ(as politicians or HC cards) but that's not in my hands
