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!

wow, i thought this mod was dead, awesome i was wrong :)
btw: i really can't understand why this isn't an official part of 0AD, have you ever thought of making your mod part of the game itself?

Part of the reason we chose to remain independent was to serve as a proof for the community. A few of us are also members of WFG, and we'd like to show the community what the engine is capable of and hopefully encourage people to try some modding of their own as a result.

If you've upgraded to Alpha X and you want to try out the Chinese faction, you'll want to update to the latest version of the demo pack. 0 A.D. has some super cool new features and we needed to change some things to take advantage of them. Check it out!

I am a little confused on how to get the mod demo to work?

The feature that detects new mod folders is not currently implemented, so you'll have to do it from the command line. What OS are you on?

Download china.zip and put it in your/binaries/data/mods/ folder. Then just run the following line (and change the path to your 0 A.D. folder). China.zip doesn't need to be unpacked, but it will work either way.

C:/your/path/to/0ad/binaries/system/pyrogenesis -mod=china
