The only thing left is to re-skin all military units to make them look like they actually are from their respective civs

Aztec champions that actually look like aztec warriors and so on and so forth


Is anybody else’s battle elephants auto upgrading to elite??? lol


These are some of the civilizations that have been missing from the prior Forgotten expansions…!

I have been mentioning them to friends for years, that they should be added as well…!

Now they have been — big big thanks for this new expansion! 🙂


This has been a great addition… Torn between Vietnamese and Malay as fav civs for rajas. I love Malay’s spam ability and harbor upgrade… But I’m an archer fan at heart plus imperial skirms, fun stuff 🙂

Hey guys! Any news or deadline to correction patch for AoE II HD and all DLCs? Really want to keep playing the campaings. Eagerly wating for the patch! Thanks for all yor work and amazing ideias!


Ideas for the next dlc (I can’t imagine not having another one!): Civilizations: Tibetan, Jurchen, Dutch, Swiss. Tibetan could have ldobldobpa (warrior monk) and zimchongpa (heavy spearman) as unique units, jurchen could have a heavily armored horseman, and swiss could have reisläufer (heavy halberdier). I don’t know yet about dutch…I’m sure many people have ideas…

Tibetan UU should have monk UU but not infantry UU. Tibetans were famous for their cavalry in their history. According to Chinese history, in 10th-12th century, one branch of Tibetans, Tanguts (the origin of “Tibet” in European language) invented camel-loaded trebuchets.


I didn’t know that. But camels in the Himalaya? They probably didn’t live there yet. Maybe this kind of unit could do:

Tại sao Frank không có Hussar, trong khi thực tế kỵ binh của họ rất mạnh mẽ? Tôi hy vọng phiên bản kế tiếp Franks sẽ có thể nâng cấp Light Cavalry thành Hussar. Xin cảm ơn rất nhiều.

Tôi nghĩ các bạn nên giảm sức tấn công của Nhật Bản bằng việc loại bỏ tốc độ đánh của họ và thay vào đó là gia tăng tốc độ di chuyển cho họ, giống như Yamato của AOE I. Xin cảm ơn.
