Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends is a real-time strategy game for the PC made by Big Huge Games, and published by Microsoft. It is the spiritual successor to the popular game, Rise of Nations released in May 2003. However, rather than being a historical game, it is based in a fantasy world, where technology and magic coexist.

Ryder has created ROL BIG Archiver, which answers the prayers of Rise of Legends fans worldwide as the BIG files are now extractable for editing, modding, importing and exporting back into the game.

- You can view some of the hidden files retrieved from the BIG files here

- You can download the program here, submit errors here, donate here, and discuss this at the HG Modifications forum here with any questions, tests and projects
- Fans of ROL can now mod the game using the info and tools here
- Fans of Rise of Nations and both games can now make a Rise of Nations 2 Total Conversion Mod for ROL using the ROL BIG Archiver, 3DSMax and other programs
- We are giving away copies of ROL to any serious modders and programmers who are interested, please see this thread here for the details

- In the near future we need a programmer to create a Blender addon for ROL for editing the 3D models as only 3DSMax can be used and it is expensive for non-students and game industry people. Ryder has created a Blender addon here for Rise of Nations, maybe someone else can make one for the ROL BH3 and BHA files?

- We also need your help to finish putting together this map, read the story here and download the files here
- Please spread the news wherever you can and post in the HG ROL forums with any questions and projects

- If you have downloaded the ROL BIG Archiver and are making mods, you can post the mods at HG and Moddb and start your own project thread for discussion in the forum here

Motter writes: "Game Bug Fixes: Cuotl and Alin campaigns will now award you your Research and Military points." for his Motter's Expansion mod available here Moddb.com
It's possible this may be fixed by installing his mod, or reinstalling your game

What this game needs is some fan programmers to go through and fix the bugs, make some patches for missing features and generally polish it up so it works better Moddb.com

Yeah, this game really is an underapreciated gem... An HD edition like AoE2 or AoM would be amazing.
