Then is confirmed. There will be four new civs. I hoped one more civ but this is still very cool 🙂

bennyboybrit

Sander Perón

Don’t spread bullshit, it’s the 31st of october, like 4 days ago

bennyboybrit

the start of regular info reveals, been circulating forums since. deal with it

Julian Baba

Lik don’t be a little boy ya bennyboy! ;D

Sander Perón

What forums? What post? Link it or stop it

Leovigildo

Ah, the tower of Belém is the wonder for the Portuguese. So I guess the other big building we saw on the trailer (and on the bottom of this pic) was a “feitoria”?

Oh well, we’ll soon find out

Tramadol

Needs cannons, though.
It’ll be funny to build a Tower of Belém in a map without water…

Sander Perón

Did Spain and the Byzantines finally get the mediterraneam architecture set? Since Portugal got it as well

Jean Lou Castonguay Dionne

They said no, as they dont want to touch too much the old civs.

Sander Perón

Yay, stupid thing. I can’t even find any tutorials how to do it myself

Christopher Warren

There are mods on the Steam Workshop. By author known2own4sho. One of them adds Mediterranean set to both Spanish and Byzantium.

Sander Perón

Nope, if so I weren’t here

Sander Perón

Do you even check what you link?

BioCyberFociMatrixShrineSpirit

He linked exactly what you asked for.

Sander Perón

This mod is dead for months and no longer updated / working, so non existant

BioCyberFociMatrixShrineSpirit

Oh, is a .dat file modification thats not supported anymore, Sorry. It can still be done I guess with the genie editor.

Sander Perón

Yes, that’s what people on AoK heaven told me, I will check this out after I got into the new expansion. I don’t even know what’s the difference between “dat file mod” and “genie editor”, didn’t he use the genie editor before? What exactly changed?

BioCyberFociMatrixShrineSpirit

The dat file is a type of file you download from the workshop, it changes things in the dataset (like the architecture in this case) however thats not supported anymore, the genie editor edits the dataset, soy if you modify your own dataset manually, it way work (you won’t be able to play on multiplayer though)

Sander Perón

Thank you for the response, I kinda get it. Made only one mod to change grey to black, besides that, did nothing.

Any reason why it’s not supported anymore?

And do you know if I am still able to upload such a modified data to the workshop, so the architecture mod is available again, after I am done?

Emmanuel Perez

bennyboybrit

From the start? You know this expension wasn’t revealed last week, right?

bennyboybrit

it was never said to have 5, people just assumed. show me something that said there would be 5 civs

Julian Baba

lol bennyboy, are you trolling or are ya just a butt head?

bennyboybrit

im not trolling but this is making me laugh. he takes it very serious. what could have been a reasoned talk he exploded

bennyboybrit

when i said from start i should have said from start of regular daily reveals ill agree to that, nothing wrong otherwise

Skratsch

I didn’t pretend they said it would be 5, but you said “they said 4 from the start, many people missed it though”, then when you’re asked for a link, you show something from 31 October, 2015. Which is far from the start.

bennyboybrit

start of regular reveals they began last week. sorry.

Skratsch

Ho, ok then.

PMar Project

A protected part of the site a few days ago.
“Right from the start” huh?
That stuff in April must have been a different game.

bennyboybrit

from the start of regular info reveals, been circulating forums since. show me a statement where they say it was 5 an i’ll say the stuff in april was a different game 😛

PMar Project

I asked you “where did they say it was 4 and for proof”, and all you say back is “where did they say it was 5 and for proof.” You’re not making much of an argument or sense. If I said there were going to be be 73 new civs from the beginning, and you said show me some proof, what kind of reply is; “ah you know it’s been around in the forums and the regular info reveals. Anyway, show me a statement from before October 30 that says it wasn’t 73 new civs and actually 4” Well you’d… Read more »

bennyboybrit

look at the pic and ull see proof lol, then u start giving me crap and all uve made are assumptions

PMar Project

Which pic?
The protected one from a few days ago?
People are a little bit disappointed over this and you coming in and saying blatant lies only aggravates things:
“never were to be 5. they said 4 from the start, many people missed it though”
“the start of regular info reveals, been circulating forums since. deal with it”

Sure people made assumptions, but you’ve made lies.
That’s why you get crap.

bennyboybrit

from the start of regular info revealings yes, 4 yes, many people missed yes, in forums yes. -_-

pinned expansion speculation forum

PMar Project

You just posted the same thing again from 4 days ago!
This expansion was not announced 4 days ago!
Have you been reading anything?
Can you not understand what I’ve been writing?
Or calenders?

How is speculation anything official?
Unless a dev posted there and then if they did why won’t you link to it?

bennyboybrit

i said from regular info revealings, they started regular reveals last week. that protected civ info is legit from this website, which was then circulated on forums, people missed the info, made assumptions and here we are

PMar Project

“regular info revealings, they started regular reveals last week” aaaah ok, I see what’s going on here. There’s been a lot of misinterpretation. When you said “they said 4 from the start”, people assumed you meant a dev said something all the way in April. Because that was the start. See, don’t you understand that “regular info reveals” has been pretty much since the end of August. So what you thought was the start and the fact that a dev never said anything but something leaked caused this confusion. I don’t think anything is official till the dev says it… Read more »

bennyboybrit

thanks man sorry for any confusion, i have been monitoring news daily so week old news does seem old :P. yeah reveals were way too late, they havent been completely transparent. yeah i was defending them because i am excited and i reckon it will be really good, it certainly looks great and i cant wait to play, childhood game :D.

PMar Project

Not one African civ gets parthian tactics?
Feels like at least one should.
Does it push them into OP land?

BioCyberFociMatrixShrineSpirit

Cysion, the portuguese link does not work, it takes you to “https://www.forgottenempires.net/aoak/civilizations/por” (ergo, error 404) instead of “https://www.forgottenempires.net/aoak/civilizations/portuguese”

also not to be a jerk but I think you meant to type “and build incredible cities that will inspire…” not incredibly. But I’m sure you have bigger fish to fry 🙂
