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:

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:

Hi, thank you for your kind words. The mod hasn't been released yet so there is no download, but we are getting close. Also, you cannot open bh3 files.

I would like to try my hand at developing a faction for Kings & Conquerors. Would you like to give me a faction and a tileset to do? if you approve, please place a roster at Kings & Conquerors Wiki for me to work on.

If you want to help out, I would rather that you worked on the siege weapons and ships, since that is something I won't be able to handle on my own. There's a list of the Roman siege weapons and ships in one of your PMs, and there are a number of Macedonian siege weapons that need to be done as well.

Alright, thanks for the mesh. I won't just be producing the model, I will also be animating it for you even though I don't really know how it might turn out.

In addition to the draft ballista mesh, I have also given you the Serb spearman from Rise of Kings. When you begin working on the Celtic or Germanic factions of K&C I believe you will find it useful.

As you hve also uploaded skins to DropBox, I will also be reworking it to accommodate the Rorarii so that we also can have combat engineers operating the macroballista (from the image you sent, it seems that the siege machine you want is quite huge and is clearly meant to be heavy artillery).

I will be creating a ballista for Rise of Kings, for South European factions. I will try my best to follow your specifications although I admit it might not be possible to follow it wholly, although I realised that with my new rigs ANYTHING is possible!

Got it. I had been thinking of the Roman ballista, but I am hitherto not too certain how to do it, although I may have ideas. The breathing animations of my infantry are quite interesting, and I was surprised that they do work, so it implies that it might be possible to create a ballista that could work.

Hi, the mod hasn't been released yet, but I'm hoping to release the first version early next year.
