The Rising Sun Team is proud to announce that we have a Public Beta!
Rising Sun Public Beta 1 has been released a few minutes ago.
It can be downloaded from our website: Risingsun.clandsf.com on the same website you can view screenshots, information and our trailer!
After loads of hard work of our entire team we have made our first "real" release: Rising Sun 0.20 Build 0201.

So what is Rising Sun?

The Rising Sun modification brings the Japanese civilization in Age of Empires III. The Japanese will give the game a big twist. Why? Because it something totally different. The Japanese are the first civilization depending on mostly wood. This dependancy is compensated by the brand new Bamboo factories. Like banks produce gold the bamboo factory produces wood and stimulates the entire wood gathering process.
