The Rise of the East is a modification for Wildfire Games' 0 A.D. that strives to bring China as a civilization into the game, meticulously researched to be as historically accurate as possible.
With the help of some Chinese historians we (especially Stanislas69) have turned the Chinese Army upside down. A lot of armors and helmets are completely reworked or brand new. This was because the old ones where not historically accurate. Also the balance is updated towards Alpha 18's standards. (note that the new armors won't be visible during standard games as promotion is disabled in Alpha 18 and those new armor variants are mainly for advanced and elite units)
How to install:
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. Alpha 18 requires one additional step to play the mod due to a packaging oversight: In the public.zip (which is in the public folder) there is a mod.json. Copy it and put it just outside of the zip file. (so you have 2 files inside the public folder: public.zip and mod.json)
4. Launch the game and enable the mod in Options>Mod Selection. Press 'Start Mods'.
5. Enjoy the mod!
