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

Some .......... news.
I have spoken to Super7700, and the reason why he is not posting is due to two reasons - the first is that he is stuck w/o a computer that can run 3ds Max 5. The second is that he has found bugs in the coding of Kings & Conquerors.

I am trying to press him for details and to get hold of the code (for at least the Gold version because we are using it for debugging purposes) but I do not know if we can get it.

There is a delay right now because of problems with Max. We are retraining to redo our stuff with Blender. Wish us luck.

Actually I am not happy. For one, Blender is difficult to use. I had to buy a new mouse just to be able to use it because my old one has a faulty mousewheel. Further, unwrapping stuff is also a hassle using Blender, so I am now using it mostly for rigging and export purposes.

its the hardness of learning a new tool, when your used to another. uv unwrapping in blender is actually one of the easiest things. with a few click you got a sweet unwrap. its just different than your used to, and it takes some time to figure out the handy tricks. you'll get over it

It's not working for me. Maybe I should change the file location to the rise of nations folder instead of the steam folder?

Hello,
Allow to introduce myself. I am one of the people working on this mod and I know the answers to your question.

Steam and Gold versions are not compatible for each other, for one thing there is a different hierarchy and way of installing mods for both versions of RoN. The Gold version cannot always be played on Steam because of various issues.

For Steam, non-Workshop mods must be inserted into a folder titled "mods" which is not at present available in all vanilla versions of the Steam ed. You need to seek out the Rise of Nations folder within Steam itself, create a "mods" folder and then ensure that you insert the mod folder PROPER into the folder itself (on my machine the destination folder is "Steam\SteamApps\common\Rise of Nations\").

So what you need is the following directory: /Rise of Nations/mods/The Hellenistic Era. You should then be able to run this mod at least in skirmish/ "Quick Battle" mode like any single player skirmish game.

Hi, sorry for the late reply. Could you please elaborate on what's not working? Is it not showing up in the mods in the quick battle menu?

Generally speaking, if you're using the Steam Version of the game then just subscribe to this mod on the Steam Workshop. If you're using the non-Steam version, the installer for The Hellenistic Era 0.11 on here should work.
