Tamerlane, Prince of Destruction - TC Edition

Author File Description
Mark Stoker
File Details
Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Style: Mix
Number of scenarios: 7
This version of "Tamerlane, Prince of Destruction" requires the Conquerors expansion pack. If you do not own the expansion pack, please download the standard AoK version.

"Tamerlane moved like a whirlwind through Asia, commanding both fear and awe throughout the world. Rising to power in 1369 on the ruins of the Mongol Empire, his great armies criss-crossed Asia from Delhi to Moscow, conquering and re-conquering, razing some cities, sparing others. His activity was relentless and unending. His fame spread quickly to Europe, where he remained for centuries a figure of romance and horror."

"Tamerlane, Prince of Destruction" is a seven-scenario campaign about Tamerlane, the last of the great nomad conquerors. In this campaign you must lead Tamerlane as he rises from the chief of a small Mongol tribe to the conqueror of the Middle East.

FEATURES:
- Six playable scenarios
- One cut-scene scenario
- Seven soundtracks
- Fun yet historically accurate gameplay
- Battle scenes that don't lag
- Supports all difficulty levels
- Game style is a combination of role-playing, fixed-force, and build-and-destroy.

This campaign also includes an 8.3Mb Music Pack (This is the same music pack that is used in the AoK version of this campaign. If you have already downloaded it, you do not need to download it again). It is not required, but please download it if you have a fast connection. This campaign includes music from the following albums:

"Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears
"BraveHeart" soundtrack
"Caravan" by Kronos Quartet
"The Edge" by Gnomusy
"Gladiator" soundtrack
"Music of the Crusades" by The Early Music Consort of London

This music is for sampling use only. Please do not copy it or circulate it among your friends. If you really like the music, go out and buy the CDs. All of these CDs are great, except maybe one of them ;-)

serikofwaters ___ This is the nice campaign. Espesially I liked when Minamoto was tortured by Britney music. Watcha, hatcha!

___ Just want to say that the advice to train many skirmishers to repel attacks of the enemy archers was good for AOK.
However, for AOK-TC this advice is not good. The best way to repel archers attack in AOK-TC is to mine much stone and build tower at some distance behind the walls [so that enemy soldiers cannot hit them with a sword]. At the same time you have to train foot archers, and once a tower has been built you should stuff it with 4-5 archers. A tower stuffed with archers has the "Attack Points" enormously boosted. It easily kills every moving creature [except for rams, and trebuchets].
Besides, as you know the computer archers can pull back if attacked by a skirmisher, but by some reason they never pull back if attacked by a tower. They just stay at the spot stupidly shooting arrows, and getting quickly killed by the tower fire.

___ There is something wrong in the 5 scenario (where you invade India). In almost the very beginning, when you are returning to get a reinforcement, the AOK-TC stops to function. Then it shutdowns itself.
It can happen if one used a trigger to rename, or change HP, or kill, or remove an object. Then, by some reason, this object was removed from the game, but thr trigger was left. Then sometimes it leads to scenario crashes.

Would it be possible to check for this bug, and maybe put this revised 5 scenario even separetly [say, into the "Single Player"], so that I can download and play

Thanks for nice campaign,
Serik

Playability: 5
Everything worked out great. No technical problems at all. Excellent mix of different battle styles and scenario types. No lag problems.

Balance: 5
Exteremely challengin in many areas. Much micromanagement is required. It's definitly winnable, however. Lots of side goals and quests to fufill. The campaign brings the best out of RPG, FF, and B/D in all areas.

Creativity: 5
Absolutely brilliant. The work and ideas put into this scenario is amazing. Infiltrating Delhi is fun. The part where Minamoto is totured with the Britney Spears music is quite funny.

Map Design: 5
It was as if every forest, every road, every town and village, every river or stream, and every elavation change was given an unbelievable amount of work. These maps are amazing in the quality, realism, and variety.

Story/Instructions: 5
Excellent instructions and story. I love an Age of Empires scenario when I learn about History like this one. A thrilling adventure to say the least.

Overall:
Brilliant. This is hands down the best campaign ever. They need to hire this team to do the Age of Empires III scenarios. This was awesome.
