The Council is both happy and proud to announce a special new release!!!

What is it?

Millennium A.D. is a total conversion mod for 0 A.D. focusing on the Middle Ages. It is divided in two parts, this first one is focusing on the first half of the Middle Ages; the timeframe of Charlemagne and the Viking Age. The name of this release is Xýlo. This is a byzantine word for wood, in recognition for vanilla 0AD’s founder (Play0ad.com ). That is respectful for the new release.

What is new?

Thanks to Alexandermb talented modder is responsible for majority of the new models, Wackyserious our versatile texture artist, Stanislas69 our artist and Lion.Kanzen icon and texture artist, we are happy to introduce you to two new civilizations Byzantines and Carolingians as well as Anglo-Saxons and Norse faction are updated this release.

Byzantines

The mighty civilization which has its roots in Eastern Roman Empire dawns this release.

1

This release Byzantines got new market, variation of houses, corral, blacksmith, civ centre and many other buildings. Also Byzantines use new units and ships including fire ships.

Carolingians

The time of Charlemagne has come and you will witness the might of his Franks.

5

Last release Carolingians were hidden and worked on by Stanislas69 and this release thanks to fully redone building set and remodelled units are available. You can look forward to Cathedral of Aachen and Carolingian church or docks. From units we can mention Catholic priest.

Anglo-Saxons

This release Anglo-Saxons got Bixworth church(wonder) enabled and Offa of Mercia as their hero that together with his axeman will break through the lines of defence.

2

The Norse

Prepare for the new naval battles with the Norse. Since last release the Norse got new longboats and ships are fully animated.

Many smaller changes were made in this release too, but it would be too elaborate to list them all.

Who are we?

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

Sweet lord mate, this mod is savage and acurrate and just a little correction, the word Xylo is a greek word but yeah Byzantine its fine. The work you did whit the Byzantines its remarkable! I myself i'm a student in Hellenology here at Germany and its so well done and its so acurrate! Mate you even put the greek meanders in their shields! awesome for real.
