Patch news!

There is light at the end of the tunnel for all who are anxious to see an end to beta testing and a final version of patch 3. The current plan is to release one more updated beta patch, complete with more balance tweaks and fixes. This should happen next week. We will need everyone to get online and play a bunch of Quickmatch games with us for an evening as part of testing on the patch. Assuming all goes well, a final version of the patch will follow.

We will post a date and time for the Quickmatch testing in the days ahead.


Thanks to Thunder@BHG for the heads up!

Multiplayer Mods

One of the much anticipated featuers in the upcoming Patch 3 has been in game support for mods. Well Stuart "DiscoStu" Jeff has just released some documentation on how they work and even a sample mod for everyone to play with.
To use a mod just select it from the mods list and start the game as usual. In a multiplayer game where the host selects a specific mod to use, the players involved will have to make sure that all players have the needed mod files or the game will go out of sync. Players will need to get the mod files and place them in a Mods folder within their Rise of Nations game directory.

You can download the instructions directly from BHG and many thanks to Graham "Thunder" Somers for letting us know about things in this thread
