Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears! Delenda Est has been released for 0 A.D. Empires Ascendant. It is compatible with the Alpha 21 release and is fully playable. Download today and slay!
A list of the top changes and features in Delenda Est:
The Han Chinese bring the power of the crossbow to the battlefield, while the Nubian bowmen of the Kushite Africans rain destruction on their enemies.
And last, but not least, the Scythians will debut in a future release, so keep your scouts fresh and your eyes peeled!
Glory and Cult Statues are a brand new addition to the game. Acquire the Glory resource by building Cult Statues unique to each civilization. The Chinese build dragon statues, while the Athenians build Athena statues, and the Mauryan Indians build statues to Buddha. Praise these statues with your units to be granted Glory faster. Lastly, killing enemy units and destroying enemy structures gifts the player additional Glory. Use Glory to train heroes and research special technologies.
New skirmish maps bring fresh new gameplay, such as Alpine Lakes Tournament Edition and Tarim Basin, for 2 or 4 players.
UPDATED GUI PORTRAITS
The look of the GUI is freshened up with a new look to technology and unit portraits.
AND SO MUCH MORE
New models, textures, and so much more, from contributors such as Stanislas, LordGood, Lion Kanzen, and wackyserious!
First and foremost, Delenda Est requires the Alpha 22 version of the indie title 0 A.D. Empires Ascendant.
After downloading the Delenda Est zip file, unzip the files to the mods folder in the 0 A.D. directory on your computer. For Windows, you can find this folder in Documents (or My Documents)/My Games/0ad/mods. For example, here is the address on my computer:
Linux : ~/.local/share/0ad/mods
OSX : ~/Library/Application\ Support/0ad/mods
To enable Delenda Est, go to the main menu, tools & options, mod selection. Select the mod from the list then choose enable. Click save configuration, then start mods button. Voila! (BTW, this procedure is used for every mod.)
THERE ARE BUGS
The mod continues to evolve. Please, report any bugs you find and also feel free to discuss the balance of the mod.
If you see gray textures, wait a moment and they will load. If you see some error messages, they will go away. The AI is clumsy with the mod, so be patient. The mod is MULTIPLAYER compatible, so play it with your friends!
THE MOD IS UNFINISHED
Delenda Est has a bright future and many plans. We hope to bring Formation Combat to the game as well as other enhancements, such as a brand new Scythians faction and more new units and game features.
