Come on Devs and MS! When a new patch? There are several pending things!

It fills me with pity and helplessness to see how they left this game aside, there are more things that can be added without the need for a DLC. I’m still waiting for:

  • Classic mode for campaign, multiplayer and editor.

  • The option to be able to change the AI player colors and not just mine. (That in AoE II and III can be done)

  • Fix FPS drop when zooming out the camera.

  • Add hotkeys to the technologies, AoE II DE and III DE They also have this feature, you cannot miss something so basic for a DE.

  • Change the drag system of the camera with Right Click, when you drag the camera in AoE 2 and 3 DE with right click you can keep the mouse still, and move the camera with a slight inertia, in AoE 1 DE it is very rough and you have to move the mouse in addition to not having inertia.

  • User Icons like AoE II and III DE.

  • Empire Wars: It will be added to AOE 3 DE, we also need it in AoE 1 DE

  • New Skirmish maps: The maps in AoE 1 De are very limited, extremely little, they need at least to be tripled and even then they would not reach half of those of AoE 2 and 3.

  • Add initial resource option in skirmish, either low to infinity.

  • Fix the “Animated Fog” setting that does not contribute anything, there is no difference between whether it is enabled or disabled, this animated warrior fog is not seen in the least as in AoE 2 DE, the only way to see it is to increase the I shine the game in an exaggerated and ridiculous way.

I could continue, but it would be in vain, in short, a pity as I discard this game, I hope if AoM DE becomes reality this does not follow this same path as the 1 DE , I hope that one day they surprise us and bring us some of these things that I have written here.

Its sad to see the game that started everything be neglected like this.
It had so much potential and it could have a solid player base probably just by adding a few features.

Looking at how the developers treat AoE 1, I come to the conclusion that this game will not receive any new content (there is little chance for any events, new game modes, and even more so for new DLCs).

AoE 1 looks like a game that was created only to be able to release the Trilogy - because it sounds better.

Hopefully the developers are considering creating AoE 5 embedded in the AoE 1 timeframe. This would most likely be the only opportunity for something new-ancient in this series.

AoE 1 DE is an abandoned game…

I like it how it is. In fact, I don’t like the “legacy” behavior in AoE2:DE, but the one in this game. Optional settings is what this game needs. Customization, please! @fe_dev_team

I want infinite resources option too! :+1:

Yes. This is much needed. I agree with you, considering this is a DEFINITIVE edition, and not just the original game with a revamp in textures!

Yes. I would love Age of Empires 1 DE to have real-life maps. Would be very cool, though it also would need new terrains, assets, animals and props, since this game is mostly Afro-Eurasian only! :slightly_frowning_face:

:cry:

I think its more likely that they will do an age of mythology 2 rather than an aoe5 embedded in 1. Which is probably one of the reasons why aoe4 was some sort of a reboot set on medieval ages, obviously the main reasons being the success of aoe2.

So is it more possible that AoE 5 would reboot AoE 3 than AoE 1 ???

That could be possible. But it feels a bit unlikely since AoE3 doesn’t look old at all, specially with DE and all the changes and how they keep adding new content and new game modes coming.
It’s more likely that they will keep working on aoe3 and adding new content to it like what they are doing atm.
It also depends a lot on how well aoe4 goes first though.

If a sequel to AoM is released including all content from the original + expansions, that would be dope. Both AoE1 and AoM deserve good amounts of love.

I love AoE1 but it’s a bit of a miracle it got a DE version at all. I view it as a ground-testing and fans service project.
Played recently (solo) and didn’t encounter any bugs.
