Kings and Conquerors: The Hellenistic Era is a total conversion modification for Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots.
Our aim is to bring the Hellenistic period to life.


  • A set of highly unique factions.
  • A huge number of new units with high quality textures, and most with custom models
  • New unit types, such as priests, levies, mercenaries and elite units.
  • Many new wonders and buildings. Nations will receive Unique Buildings in addition to Unique Units that provide a range of bonuses.
  • A new political system with three tiers of policy decisions, providing strong bonuses and unlocking new units and buildings.
  • Army reforms can be enacted to upgrade and unlock units.
  • Combat mechanics overhauled. Ranged units may now miss their target, flanking damage has been drastically increased and units can no longer turn around instantly to counter an attack from behind.
  • Increased population limit and map sizes; a number of maps have been altered to fit with the mod's Hellenistic period setting.

We can use the help of any experienced modders who are willing to make a contribution. We need modellers, animators and scripters especially. Please send a PM here if you are interested.

If you have any feedback or issues, please post in the mod forum here: Moddb.com

The Hellenistic 0.11 has now been released! This version features several small additions and fixes to make the Roman and Macedonian factions more complete.



Rise of Nations

The Hellenistic Era 0.11

Rise of Nations: Extended Edition

The Hellenistic Era 0.11 is now available on the Steam Workshop! You can subscribe to the mod here.

IMPORTANT: This mod will crash if it's priority is set below certain mods, notably the Terrain 5 Extended mod. To fix this, go to Tools and Extras => Steam Workshop, select the Terrain 5 Extended mod from the list and move it to the bottom by pressing "priority down". Then, just to be safe, move The Hellenistic Era to the top of the list by pressing "priority up".


  • New units: Kestrosphendonetai and Hiera Ile for the Macedonians, Vigiles for the Romans.
  • A number of textures and models have been improved
  • Thanks to The_Fulcrum, heavily-damaged forts can now be captured if you have more soldiers nearby than its owner. With the Informer ability you can also capture undamaged forts.
  • The Peasant Dwellings, Noble Residence, Sporting Centre and Cultural Centre now produce resource trickles.
  • Several bugs and balancing issues have been fixed.


  • The following maps do not work with the Big Huge or Huge map sizes and will cause the game to crash:

  • - Atlantic Sea Power
    - East Meets West
    - Nile Delta

  • In order for the AI build orders to work, make sure that you list the human players before the AI players when setting up a quick battle, and make sure that you are using red as your player colour.
  • Many of the scripted features have not been implemented, so you won't be able to spawn mobs from cities or convert enemy citizens into slaves for instance.
  • Due to the custom script and the new models with higher polycounts, the mod will be more demanding on your computer. However if you have a decent computer then it shouldn't that noticeable.
  • With the exception of the Trireme and Ballista, naval and siege warfare have not been touched on and probably won't be until after the first release yet due to heavy modelling and animation requirements.

We hope you enjoy Kings and Conquerors: The Hellenistic Era! Please let us know if you come across any problems with this mod, and don't hesitate to give us any feedback you might have. There's also a forum where you can post your thoughts: Moddb.com

Yes, there's plenty more factions planned! I've started work on the Seleucids, though it will be some time before I'm able to release them.

There's a full list of planned factions here: Kingsandconquerors.wikia.com

However it is hard to say whether I will ever get through to completing all, or even most of the factions given how long it will take, and also I'm getting busier with real life matters.

I can confirm that work has started on a few units on my part, especially the African war elephant. We should be able to get something out on that by Christimas.

I'll probably start working on the Carthaginians after I've completed the Seleucids and Ptolemaic Egyptians. I'm not sure how long it will take to add them though.

You need to load the mod script, by selecting "The Hellenistic Era" from the scripts dropdown in the quick battle setup menu.
