Welcome to the Forge!


What is the Forge you ask? The Forge is a place where all budding designers such as yourself may post information about their upcoming project, such as single and multiplayer scenarios, campaigns, mod packs and utilities. These will be put on display for all to see and updated according to their progress along the way. All you have to do is leave a comment below and we'll take care of the rest!

In addition, all issues, requests and questions regarding the Blacksmith may be posted here in return for a quick answer. We shall also endeavour to post all noteworthy submissions here under Blacksmith News so be sure to keep an eye out!




POSTING YOUR PROJECT:


Please leave a comment below, which should contain your project name, project type (scenario, campaign or mod pack/utility etc), genre/style (FF, B&D etc), percentage complete and a general description of the project. The description should read like a blurb to a novel; it should be short, sharp and catchy - enough to interest potential downloaders. We'll compile the information and add your project to The Forge!

WHAT NOT TO POST:


Do not post information about a project you've already completed, or which you'll finish in a day or two, just for advertising. Post works-in-progress, not completed files.

Do not post information for projects you know you're not going to finish. By posting your project here, people will expect to see it finished one day. That being said, life happens and we understand that some projects will never see the light of day due to changing circumstances.

On the side, please consider your projects carefully. We would rather smaller projects over epic campaigns due to the likelihood of the former actually being completed. We do not want to discourage you from embarking on that all-inspiring epic, but we also don't want you to feel like your new project has to be a world beater every time. That being said, it is absolutely fine to showcase your campaign in chapters with open endings, which increases the likelihood of you completing it!






Discover the most promising works from all genres and formats submitted to the Blacksmith over the past 12 months. Please feel free to make suggestions!


Aztec architecture set, by omarrgg - 4/5/18 - Relive the peek of the Aztec civilisation in this glorious and colourful modification.

Wildlife Pack - by Vardamir - 3/6/18 - In the author's own words, this neat mod pack brings to the editor "a large set of variant AoK animals, including six wolves, seven deer, three jaguars, seven birds, three bears, a llama, a sheep, and 27 horses." This is a more than useful addition to any scenario!

The Legend of the White King, by Bassi - 2/26/18 - Traverse the beautiful and often inhospitable rainforests of Brazil alongside Portuguese conquistador Alejo Garcia in search of the fabled lands of the 'White King'. This stunning five scenario campaign is the author's best work to date!

Siege of Nicaea - by Cataphract - 1/2/18 - Wage the First Crusade with your European brethren as the Byzantines led by Manuel Boutoumites during the bloody and dramatic siege of Nicaea. The powerful custom AI will test you!

Portuguese Civ Mod III - by danielpereira - 11/28/17 - Enjoy the third instalment to the stunning Portuguese Civ Mod, which includes 8 new civilisations and a raft of new game play features!

Ancient America - by Bassi - 10/6/17 - Relive four important events during the pre-Columbian era of Central America in what is a stunningly detailed and well-designed build-and-destroy affair. Ancient America awaits!

Battle of Lake Trasimene - by Alkhalim - 09/13/17 - Ravage the Roman mainland under the famous Hannibal of Carthage in what is a simple yet fun build-and-destroy scenario.

Minato and the Imperial Regalia - by AoE2 Edhun - 09/08/17 - A young man returns to the homeland of his grandfather only to find himself caught up in civil war and the struggle against the current shogunate. Enjoy this epic with hours of game play and a massively creative and detailed map!

First Battle of Panipat - by Shuvro - 05/04/17 - Relive one of Babur's famous military exploits in what is the author's first submission and depicts the Indian continent in a well-designed and immensely challenging affair. Can the Mughals hold off the much more numerous Delhi Sultanate?

Ragnar's Raids - by Al_Kharn the Great - 04/18/17 - Tread the rugged shores of Britain and Francia alongside the famous Ragnar Lodbrok in this epic Viking saga of conquest, exploration and plunder.

Black Wolves - by Vardamir - 02/20/17 - This is a neat little mod that gives designers the option of a menacing and darker wolf unit. Definitely worth the download.

Real Map Creator - by peterolson - 02/9/17 - Download this utility that enables you to create any realistic template based on real world geography.

Wind of the North by Mashek - 01/19/17 - When a fierce band of Northmen arrive at your small island on their way to the Irish mainland, you must convince peaceful fishermen to toss aside their nets and farming implements and prepare to defend their lives. Can you withstand the pagan Norse?

The In-Game Standard AI - by EliteRaider - 1/14/17 - Download the standard AI for the Conqueror's Expansion here, which should prove to be a useful tool for scenario designers over having to extract the AI from the drs files. This release also fixes the bug in Death Match games on Arena and Fortress maps that caused all civs (with exceptions to Huns and Goths) to only build towers on all difficulty settings besides easiest.

@poss:Im trying to play it now in the userpatch but the english resign as soon as I enter the game. Not sure if maybe my UP build is messed up, I just updated it but it made no difference.

Nevermind, didnt put the AI files in. Although I thought AI files were embedded inside the cpx so they didnt need to be added, normally.

Scratch Fantasumer from the list please, it's a dead map at this point.

I'll focus all my AoEII time on Exilium (no progress yet, I've been away from AoK for a while after days and days of game-crashing trigger bug hunting).

Will keep you posted.

Check me out on Steam: GL252 I'm very slowly building a scenario and eyecandy map portfolio.

Hey Mash, I believe my cinematic is now 50% completed. I know it has been almost a year since my last post in this thread, but hey, a slow progress is better than none.

I'll be posting a teaser (a prologue to a prologue if you will) to the blacksmith in a few weeks. Though no one will probably download it.

Hahaha, I know you would.

You don't have to review it though, if it's gonna require some effort. It's still only half of the cinematic anyway, and I'll probably update it when the whole thing's finished. I'd love to hear some of your comments though -- I think this may the best cinematic I've ever made, design-wise.

It should be up tomorrow.

Hey Andan, I finally got around to watching your cut-scene. Perhaps your best work yet in terms of map design and storytelling (Fight Against Fate still holds the mantle for sheer epic size). I really enjoyed the added detail and polish that you've obviously mastered since your last submission. Just on the side, but did you want me to update your older files to your newer account? I think you have 3 or 4 accounts all up.

So... Seems like many people missed it, but I realised I never posted it here. But back in February WARTH OF THE TRAIBS WAS FINALLY RELEASED!

Please do play it people, and give me your feedback. Comment and Review for me!

Hi!.. Possidon!.. You know that I have finished your scenario. I want to give you a suggestion about your download number. I think that you must definitely upload your file to steam community. You can't find "enough" downloaders here. Steam community is the best option to obtain more downloads. This website isn't enough for obtaining high download numbers. I think that steam community is the only way...

I will do that. Perfect start for my reviewing comeback.

I actually remember playtesting for this project years and years ago

That would be awesome. I was wondering if changing of file author is allowed, but now I've got my answer. Thank you very much!

And thank you for watching the cinematic too. I like to call it FAF v2 since the structure will be similar. I will however, try to keep it as short as possible.

@Poss: Congrats for completing your project! It must have been a long and tough struggle but should eventually pays off in the end.
