Alternative Expansion for the Age of Kings, replaces the Aztecs, Mayans, Spanish and Koreans with the Vandals, Moors, Bulgars and Varangians.
Some very general changes overall:
- Goths, Vandals, Varangians, Huns, Bulgars, Turks
and Mongols can train Cavalry Archers in the
- Huns, Turks, Mongols and Bulgars can build
yurts - mobile camps for hunting expeditions
and sites for breeding sheep
The two new civilizations added by this mod are very unique from other Slavic mods, and although the building set is similar in a few ways to the AoFE Slav set, it does not matter much since this mod is for the Conquerors Expansion. Any one who prefers using the Conquerors rather than Forgotten Empires will be delighted to be able to play as Slavic civilizations. Other than that, there are plenty of uses for this mod to describe Eastern-European historical scenarios set during the Dark Ages. However, the mod could use more civilizations, which I'm sure it will have in the future.
As usual from Khan Ivayl, this mod includes a custom installer, which is one of the nicest things a mod could have. When I uninstalled the mod, the game was just as it were before installation. Besides that, the new civilizations are explained both in the mod's download folder and in the history section, making it easier for a player to know the background of the civilizations included in this mod.
I recommend this download to anyone who is interested in Slavic/Eastern European history, and also, anyone who has played Ivayl's previous mod; Age of Vampires will also enjoy this one, seeing as it contains the same general quality, and potential.
