What is it?

Rise of the East focusses on one faction the Chinese, during the Han Dynasty to be precise. With it's fancy theme this is surely one to mark! As a release name we've chosen Jīngzhì. This word means refinement. We've chosen this name because this mod is coming closer and closer to it's final state.

What is new?

The new release features a new building: the 'Government Center'. (modeled by Stanislas69) (See the big building in the top image) This buildings comes available in Phase III and features some technologies unique to the Han Chinese, to give you an edge to your opponents. The tech icons are made by niektb:

Current features:

- One playable faction: Han (No worries, the civilizations from the main game are still playable)
- 2 Custom Random Maps: Loess Plateau and Gobi Desert (made by Spahbod)

Who are we?

The Council of Modders was formed up of two small modding teams and a few newcomers: Aristeia (about the bronze age) and Millennium A.D. (about medieval times) CoM aims to create a umbrella for all wannabee modders and help everyone needed and of course create their own projects, one of them is Rise of the East.

Rise of the East was added to the project list in early-2014 after an agreement with Scion's lead Rob Kimball. That having said: We owe a large one to them for having paved the road for us to continue in their absence!

How to:

1. Unzip the download but leave the inner archive intact.
2. Place the unzipped folder into /binaries/data/mods. You'll see another folder there called 'public'.
3. Launch the game and enable the mod in Options>Mod Selection. Press 'Start Mods'.
4. Enjoy the mod!

Download:

A newer release has been added, check out the download section.

Hello,
I would like to participate in your mod. I am not a designer but I have a good knowledge of asia especially japan. Is there any interest? Do you guys have an IRC channel or something?

EDIT:
Ok.. I've read your forum guys.. seems like japan would not be a good idea because of the time (0 AD). Too bad. Japan would be perfect for a medieval mod.

I wish to speak to Kimball/PrplPplEater please?

Unrelated to the mod, but it's about his Roman Legion Expansion for Age of Mythology, and I wish to ask him, if I can have any files related to it, so I can give it to a friend.

Thanks in Advance.

Is there anyway I can get into touch with him, or is it confidential?
