Corpse effects?

As we know there were no corpse effects since AOE3 vanilla. They just simply fade away. But I think it would be a nice addition to the atmosphere of the game.

I don’t think it was because of 3D graphics. AOM had such effects. Maybe it was a performance issue.

You don’t need to have the very detailed “decaying” effects like in old AOE1 and 2 (which was also simplified in DEs). That may require a lot of additional modeling for each model. I think there are many clever ways to make it look good enough without too much work. For example maybe a little more blood and a “sinking into the ground” effect rather than directly disappearing.

This could be an option that one can toggle, or a free DLC.


A mi me parece interesante, lo que me gustaria es que agregaran más animaciones de muerte (como las que tienen los schiavone o sharpshooters de USA)

I think AOM has that in the game.

If you are looking for an alternative tho, this mod was fun to play in 4v4, there were so many casualties littering the ground it made it tough to micro the army:
