Not too long ago, a forummer named Cheruscan has posted a thread that was about reviving this Russian mod project that I've left unfinished for years. Also, a few weeks ago, ModRocker has mailed me about him wanting to see this mod. And so now I feel this is the time to show it all off, even if it's still not finished.
I remember starting this project back in 2001 with eagerness and interest. I remember an old forummer named Beloyar who was a Russian history expert and who supplied me with everything I needed to know to progress.
But as two more years passed, progress on the mod was still rather slow and I've felt that modding AoK has gotten more or less out of my interest level and I have moved on to other interests in life.
Well, as of today I still see many people who are still into AoK:TC, though not as many as in the glory days apparently. And I've felt that since this mod has taken me so long to work on, I've finally felt like showing this piece of art to the world.
So here are some specs:
The Aztecs have been modded as the Kievan Russians.
The Mayans have been modded as the Muscovite Russians.
Eagle Warrior/EEW = Vityaz/Elite Vityaz. Russian mounted knight-type unit armed with a spear.
Jaguar Warrior/EJW = Bogatyr/Elite Bogatyr.
Kievan Rus unique swordsman-type unit.
Plumed Archer/EPA = Boyar/Elite Boyar
Muscovite Russian unique ranged cavalryman.
The mossy road has been replaced with a dark-colored road.
One of the Gaia trees in the editor has been replaced with a Birch tree.
And now for some SCREENS:
Small Riverside Village in the Feudal Age.
Castle Age City.
Great Russian Imperial Age City.
Unique Units Galore. Vityazs, Bogatyrs, and Boyars.
The Moscow Kremlin!
Alexander Nevski's Army Standing Ready To Own Your Sorry Ass. ;-)
I hope you'll enjoy playing around this mod and using it for whatever purpose you want. You may do ANYTHING you wish with it; finish it for me whatever way you want, use its graphics in your own projects, etc. But I'd reccomend you to be courteous and credit me for those graphics, ok? :-)
Your former neighborhood modder,

Great units and buildings! Given a 4.5 for lack of dll editing and two or three buildings (which should be expected as the title does, in fact, say "Unfinished").
(I give this mod a 4.5 because there are a couple buildings missing and there is only graphical changes.)
Additional Comments: The graphics are amazing, my favorite buildings are the imperial age ones, especially the town center, it's a master piece. I only spotted one bug with the units and thats with the Vityaz, when it attacks the shield seems to sink into the side of the horse, kind of strange, but you made it in poser so I see how the mistake could be made.
Anyways great mod, this is well worth downloading.
I love this mod. Since it's title says it's unfinished, you can forgive the lack of 2 or 3 new buildings
The buildings and new units are all beautiful, and they make you feel almost as if they were already in the game, plus the different visuals make for a nice, good looking empire
