Contaremos entonces con Griegos, Nordicos,Egipcios, Chinos y Aztecas? Planean agregar mitologia Africana? Hindu? Polinesia? y Japonesa?

Hola la verdad es que el mod se centra principalmente y únicamente en incluir tres antiguas civilizaciones americanas: los aztecas, los mayas y los incas. Después de esto no sabemos si trabajaremos en alguna otra civilización, pero de momento no lo diremos, ya que ni siquiera hemos terminado la primera de las que estamos trabajando, entonces planear otras muchas civilizaciones sería muy ambicioso y pues el que mucho abarca poco aprieta.

no son los incas demasiado tardíos para el juego ,¿no seria mas adecuado los mochicas en lugar de incas ? claro ,si es que no demasiado tarde para cambiarlo

la gente necesita dejar de pensar que hay civilizaciones tardías para el juego, el juego trata principalmente de mitología, no de historia tal cual, no es un total war o un age of empires que se enfoca como tal en un periodo particular de historia. Mientras haya mitología como argumento principal, cualquier civilización puede ser válida para el juego. Obviamente se apoyan de elementos históricos y culturales para crear la cultura pero el elemento principal es la mitología, no la historia; y la mitología es imaginativa, es creativa, no necesita de líneas de tiempo ni márgenes estrictos. Es por eso que Arkantos, como general de la Atlántida puede ir a Escandinavia con aliados griegos y egipcios a combatir a Cronos. Si nos basáramos solamente en el argumento de la "historicidad" habría muchos problemas con el juego, ¿Qué pasa entonces con Egipto? en el juego toman elementos que van desde el reino viejo hasta el Egipto helénico de los ptolomeos, es decir más de 4000 años. Ya ni hablemos de los Atlantes que son una civilización completamente ficticia citada solamente por los textos de Platón y de la cuál toman elementos de otras culturas y civilizaciones del mundo para darle vida.

Así que en resumen, el elemento principal es la mitología, la historia ocupa un lugar de segundo plano en AoM, cualquiera que no entienda esto no comprende realmente la esencia ni el espíritu de Age of Mythology.

¿Estas diciendo que podría haber un age of mythology con católicos romanos? ,creo que comparto tu afirmación

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

La respuesta corta sería sí, en tanto se encuentre una manera de hacer que encaje dentro de las mecánicas del AoM. Aunque en ese caso que tu me planteas es bastante más difícil porque estamos hablando de una religión que aún se práctica, por lo cuál tratar ese tema podría salir mal ya que esa religión representa algo importante para millones de personas. Pero sí, no hay una razón por la cuál no pudieran incluirse.
