    Default The Most Mod Friendly Game Ever Coming Soon!!!- Third age Transfer?

    The Most Mod Friendly Game Ever Coming Soon!!!

    Field of Glory: Empires
    http://www.ageod.com/products/product.asp?gid=789

    Is an upcoming grand strategy turn based game similar to total war but that uses a we-go system. Players enter their turn at same time and the cpu processes their turns at same time [MP up to 16 players]. Having played civil war 2 by ageod has cured my whole created when I stopped playing total war when it became to arcade like.


    The developers say it will be completely open to modding and made as easy as possible. "Your imagination is your limit" and when asked if they will do a medieval time period they said "If we dont make that medieval game for you, you can just go in and do it yourself." "the entire system is exposed to you." Battles can even be exported to another game.

    So my question is, who is going to make a Third age mod for this game so we can Campaign MP? PM me if you might be intersted in starting a group to do a third age/LOTR mod for the ageod game.

    CA howver is desperate to keep their newest games unmoddable. They are scared no one would buy their DLC anymore and mods they cant get money off.

    Does Field of Glory: Empires have real time tactics like M2TW?
    Does it have a troop veteracy system?
    I don't know what "we-go system" is.

    Yes it has a real time battle system. But it is nothing like TW and battles can be auto resolved. But battles can also be exported to another game [by the developer] and the results brought back in. Maybe this can be modded to export to med 2?

    Yes troop veteran system. A much more in depth game than tw.


    we go for MP is when all players/nations do their turn and send in the file to the server who proceeds the turn and sends the results back to the players. SO everyone moves/fights at the same time. Single player the same, just the cpu proceeds all the turns at once.

    Sounds like a good game but I would like to see different sorts of improvements over M2TW.

    Like the ability to build custom castles with real motes that the besieging forces would have to fill before they attempt an assault, or store management in castles, or custom equipment and training for your forces and certainly the ability to transfer of the most skilled soldiers of a unit to another unit for the purpose of assembling elite detachments, or the management of the workforce.

    A more challenging AI would be a must, as would be the correlation between surf population, their health, their happiness, their productivity and conscription/disbandment.

    How do you know it is the most mod friendly game ever if it has not been released yet? It says the battles only transfer to a turn based tactics game, who would even want that? Sounds like a waste of time feature to me, they could have have been making something else instead.

    There is a game called Knights of Honor that has real time strategy and tactics, worth checking out. It is pretty old so quite moddable. Newer games rarely are, including TW, but this has to do with how it is made now. It is not a huge conspiracy or anything, files need to be compressed and optimized and baked and... all sorts of things that make them not easy to mod but still possible to mod. All programs can be modded, it is only a question of time and effort required. The time and effort to "transfer" TATW, or make a new one for that game will most likely require too much time and effort for anyone to ever do it. Especially if they don't already have some idea of how to do things since they will have to spend months or years learning.

    I just might check that game out. The developers of agod have said the entire game is open to modding and that it will be very easy to mod.

    I don't think FoG:Empires has a real-time battle system, it's rather an auto battle on a map.
    However, Med2TW was an example for the dev for the moddability of F:E

    The best system was realtime strat map and realtime battles, like Knights of Honor. Its also mod-friendly.
