New RoN Mods from Viago

A new contributor to the Rise of Nations Modding scene, Viago just released 3 mods at the same time! First, he has a no oil wells mod which you can download from here, but you can still make off shore oil rigs which he hopse will make the sea a more vital resource. The next is a redo of the No Armageddon mod. So if you don't want to hunt through the old download submissions, here is one for you to try out. Finally, he has a mod which disables all the end game techs, nukes and missles to make things a little more conventional for the long game. You can find that here.

Take Washington City

Alternatively you might want to fight the good fight for racial equality, in which case this sequel to Freedoggy77's Negro Revolution by marce61 is worth a look.
