Heroes Mod 1.0

Author File Description
Gelvaz
File Details
Version: The Conquerors
This Mod, or better to say, ADDon, once its adds, not modify things on the game, is a revolution on the Age of Empires Series! Have you ever imagined to playing a game and be possible to create the heroes presents on the Scenario Editor or in the Campaigns, and saying on the end: "You have been defeated by El Cid troops" with El Cid himself on the battlefield? I think not, but this today is simply possible!

The mod allows the player to create 2 heroes for each 18 civilizations, on the game. One is the Sub-hero that's a low powerful character that can be created many times. The other is the Main Hero of that civ, with incomparable but not unreal power, and can only be created under a condition: you must have 150 kills for each Main Hero you want to create more a 100 gold symbolic tribute to pay.

Besides that, the mod adds a new build to organize all this stuff, coming from the Scenario Editor: a tower, renamed as Heroes Tower that can be created on Castle Age for a little stone price, but it's fragile too.

The mod engine prepares everything for you to play; it overwrites and makes backup of some data files, you only have to decide to play with or without the mod.

The Heros Mod 1.0 is the first Mod Pack that actually allows you to train units from the game. Normally you would have to use the editor and triggers to do this. Well, this proves us wrong here.
Usefullness:
The usefulness can go on and on and on about this Mod. There is clearly no limit that i can see that this mod has. The Hero limit can be annoying to some at one point or another....but still, it is good enough that you can even make them without trigger knowledge or having to place them through the scn. editor.

Other Comments:
Definately worth the download. If you ask me, this takes the game to a whole new level....

Simply spectacular, once you reached Castle Age and constructed a castle,you can build the tower of heroes. That tower trains two types of heroes,the main and the secondary one. You obtain the main one by paying a certainamount, which is not cheap and provided you killed 200 units, for the secondary one this restriction does not exist and you can produce it massively. Only that it is more expensive than any normal unit of your civilization and the speed of production is slow enough to maintain the beauty of the game. For example, I finish playing agame with Britons and its main unit is King Arthur and the secondary ones the horseman of the round table, individual paladins with 230 HP and 16 attack, although they are super strong, they are mortal. Here comes the war of heroes! -

This is a brilliant mod, that was very easy to install and use. I liked the choice of heroes and how it didn't give any civilisations great advances over the others. I reccomended this mod for downloading. I also liked how you had to prove yourself in battle in order to create some of the heroes. The heroes creation cost was at a price. And the heroes were very good in battle, but not too good.

I also liked the 'Tower of Heroes' Idea, And how it could be built from all civilisations. I'm guessing you used age.exe or genieED2 to do this mod, you should really have given credits to them also. Anyway, Great mod. hopefully be seeing more of your work in the future.

WELLST.

Heroes is a mod pack that allows the hero units from the scenario editor to be created, with additional attributes. Great and all, but I give this a 4.5 because of one little problem: the secondary hero is not a new unit, but it instead replaces another hero in the scenario editor. For example, if you are Mayan in a scenario, the Shaman unit replaces the Scythian Wild Woman unit (the female villager-like hero normally in the editor.) I just wanted to point out this bug. Other than that, a spectacular mod.

Superb mod. Creating hero units makes the game more fun. A nice addition to an already great game.

Additional Comments: There are some balance issues with this mod. Some Sub-heros (2nd UUs) are way too powerful compared to others but cost the same. And you can make these 2nd UUs bit more diverse since many civs have the same stats cavalry 2nd UUs.
