Post news RSS Realms 1.80 Release

A new version with an additional team, many balance changes, and content addition.

Posted by on

Adding civilizations hasn't been as much of a priority for this release, but it comes with one more:


Cavalry Archer Civilization

· Cavalry archers +1 attack
· Dropsites mobile
· All cavalry archer technologies -50% cost
· Free Scout/Camel/2 Cavalry Archers in Feudal/Castle/Imperial Age

Unique Unit: Ulan (cavalry archer)
Unique Techs: Scorched Earth (cavalry +10 bonus vs. economic buildings, enemy villagers -5 hp); Bactrian Camelry (Camels +3 attack)

Team Bonus: Villagers can construct rams

Furthermore, it will come with the latest version of Userpatch and all the improvements that entails, from animated water to new trigger effects. 1.80 also adds several mod-specifc improvements building on its features:

Added more civilization-dependent monk graphics
New Unit: Siege Towers (for all civs), which can garrison units over walls

Livestock can garrison in transport ships

Duplicate terrain slps created for all shared terrain graphics, allowing shared graphics such as Foundation and Dirt 2 to be altered independently in ZipRms files.

New UserPatch Constants are natively added

Hundreds of new editor objects have been added, drawn from various sources, including more than 60 animal variants. These new objects have been used for an overhaul of the standard and custom random maps in the mod, where the default objects can be randomly replaced by a corresponding new one.

And of course, numerous balance changes from community feedback are included.


Damn! A new actualization a soon!? AWESOME!! I love this mod!

Thanks for the suggestions! More civs are planned for future updates, but there's a limit of 44, so not all of those can be included :(

the Xianbei is a great faction to include although they were assimilated into the predominant Han-Chinese culture at the turn of the7th Century. Of key note, the royal family of the Northern Qi Dynasty (550-577CE), the "Gao-clan" were ethnically Han but adopted the culture&custom; of the Xianbei.
If vanilla factions such as the Goths, Huns and (Sassanid-)Persians are included, I don't see any fault in adding the Xianbei
