Good day, first off I would like to thank the devs for creating/continually supporting the beautiful game that I have been playing since 2001. AoE2 is a momentous game and I am truly happy to see the brilliant evolution it has undergone. I know the devs are currently inundated by support requests and people complaining about a multitude of things, for me, the game is beautiful and close to perfect. I send this message in the hopes that it may be seen by someone on the dev team with the aims of making this stupendous game as close to perfect as possible.
What we require in the AoE2DE game once all bug fixes has been finalised :
1.This is a request to all the amazing devs of this beautiful game. Myself as well as thousands of players creates and uses complex and epic mods for each game we play ,I for one love using Independent Architecture and Independent Unit mod data set for every game.
What we need, to enable ease of use for creating and using beautiful Dataset mods are the following:
For the devs to add a button in the main menu that allows you to select and load a Mod Data set that becomes active immediately, thus allowing you to enter a campaign/Scenario/SAVED GAME or game editor with the Mod Data set loaded and activated, negating the current necessity to first enter “random map” game, select the data set, enter the match and then exit the match just to have the data set active.
Please, for us whom spend countless hours creating and endlessly testing and then using data set mods, this is a dire necessity.
- More civs to be released: Poland, Georgia ,Armenia and two more African civs, like the Congolese and Greater Zimbabwe.
3.Better mod browsing filters, the option to have the mod list be displayed from Latest created mods to oldest created mods. (So all the newest mods appear at the top.
Those are the three most pressing requirements but at a later stage I would love to see the following implemented:
- A more detailed Random Map filter in future DLC’s/Updates/Mods
When I setup a battle, I always have a specific image in my head of what I want.
For instance (Dessert civ’s fighting in a desert biome) or (European kingdoms fighting in Europe) or (Asian Kingdoms fighting in Asia).
When I select the available choices, I have a 20% chance that I’ll get the map that I require.
What I need, is a Random Map filter that provides you with standard or more detailed choices.
1.1. Continental Europe (Snow/winter or Summer)
1.2. Continental Asia (Snow/winter or Summer)
1.3. Continental Yucatan
2.1. Arabia Dessert
2.2. Arabia Grass (Plains)
3.1. Archipelago Europe
3.2. Archipelago Dessert
3.3 Archipelago Asia
4.1. Rivers Europe (Snow/winter or Summer)
4.2. Rivers Asia (Snow/winter or Summer)
4.3. Rivers Desert
4.4. Rivers Yucatan
5.1. Salt Marsh Yucatan
5.2. Salt Marsh Europe
And so on.
This should include a toggle option that allows you to enable and disable this feature.
Might something like that be possible?
1.Camels should have a slower movement speed than cavalry, but on desert sand and dirt, their movement speed should be faster than that of cavalry.
2.Viking Longboats should be able to transport units as well as attack. - balance Vikings by letting them only create knights and Light cavalry in the stable , remove transport ship form viking dock.
3.Longer corpse decay + blood effects.
I thank you for your time.
