The "Fall of Civilization" is a modification for Age of Empires III. The mod will reconstruct 14 Medieval civilizations across the globe in terms of appearance of units,unique units,and unique strength.

The mod has or will use some works or thoughts of my partner Huanglukuzhu and some other mods. I will try to contact the original producer prior to my using. I hereby profound my gratitude to Huanglukuzhu and other modders.

Thanks Tilanus Commodore for allowing me to use some of his work under the conditions of our agreement.

To make this mod more focus on the most important powers at the medieval time, I made a new civilization list this week. The following is the list:

Eastern Roman Empire
Bulgaria Empire
Anglo-Saxon Kingdom (England)
Holy Roman Empire
Arabic Empire

As to the first draft, I deleted Spain, and added Goths, and Slavics were specified to Bulgarians. Venezia is a representative of all italian states and papal state, so it will still have unique units from all over the peninsula, like swiss guard which serves for pope.
The ages after age3 for Huns are correspond to the Hungary's history, although it is still an argument going on about how hungary was related to huns.

As a result of cutting Castile off, there are 4 civilized nations remained:
Eastern Roman Empire ( Roman Empire/Hellenic)
Venezia (Roman Empire/Carthage)
Persia (Seleucid Empire/ Parithian Empire)
China (Chou Dynasty/ Han Dynasty)

The ancient nations mentioned in the parentheses are the nation to revive. If you still don't get that, you can look at previous news.

To Everyone who has been interested in and expecting this mod:

First of all, I want to apologize to all of you for the lack of progress on this MOD. Because I was very busy with the college application stuff, I pretty much set aside the progress of the MOD for a year. Besides I am not a professional programmer, some issues that are out of my ability do come up during the whole Modding progress.

Well, the good thing is that I have been accepted to an amazing college so that I will have some free time from now on, and presumably more free time this summer.
The not so good thing is that I still have some problem modifying the AI of the game, which is crucial to bringing a playable MOD. I am making some progress on learning how to write proper AIs, but I suppose it would take me a long time to fully grasp the method. So if you can write AOE3 AIs, I am more than happy to have your help. I am also seeking help on where many expert Chinese modders like Huanglukuzhu and 96nn are available.

Well, that's pretty much the briefing of the latest progress on the Fall of Civilization MOD. Again, I would like to thank Tilanus Commodor for letting me use some of his works under our agreement conditions, and also thanks Huanglukuzhu who really helped and supported my work on this MOD as both a friend and a partner.

Best Regards

P.S.: I hope I can bring you more updates next time, and I am working working very hard on trying to pick up the progress and release the promised prelude with 3 to 5 civilizations before September.

I'm guessing it's not finished yet, right ?
I've seen a few mods that's finished without any download links..

You are right, I am still working on it. It still has a long way to go until a 14 civs complete version could be downloaded. However, I am expecting a pre-alpha version for next summer, it will contain at least three civs (Byzantium, Venezia, and Bulgaria. They have the same building style, so it would be easier for me). The release date depends largely on my progress. I am applying for university this year, so, as you can see, little progress was made this year. I expect to have more time working on this mod after I get offers from universities

Francia or Frankia, also called the Kingdom of the Franks or Frankish Kingdom (Latin: regnum Francorum), Frankish Empire, Frankish Realm or occasionally Frankland.

I used Francia for my preference of short phrases. The other phrases are obviously too long for me haha~~

But I will think of Change it when released. Because Kingdom of Frank is more widely used.

Oh... Sorry about that... because I have a 14 civs limit, so It's a hard choice. One of the reason I took Koryo out, which I should be sorry for, is my lack of Korean history knowledge. I sadly could not think of any unique units for Koryo other than the two which already existed in AOE2 & AOC.

Turtle ship, Hwarang (very similar style to early Samurai EG mounted archers), archer units would been cadre of army/ very strong, Hwach'a (Ancient rocket-luncher/ fired arrows propelled rockets) then you had the holy armies of korea, mass Guerrilla-peasant/landlord soldiers and lead by monks who chased japanese and mongolians around. then yeah the fact that Korea was known then for having fortresses that could withstand stupid odds against them.. like 100,000 of mongolians being held up for nearly 2 years by 7.800 something koreans in a fortress despite constant onslaught by the mongolian forces, o and the fact that something crazy like only 2000 of the defending koreans where soldiers the rest where peasants that fled to the castle when they invaded the area.. but I guess you made your mind up either way.

I think Korea would be a interesting civilization, I could fit it in as a choice of ally in the consulate of China. Moreover, I am planning another smaller mod, called <Asia At War> containing 5 Asian civilizations, and Korea would certainly be one of the main civilization in the mod.
