Hubert750 Hi Nikox,

I've tried Age of Tanks v1.2. You made the mod very interesting. I'll try a few more times and post a review for the mod. For now, I can only say it's pretty good and worth playing. I hope there're cool things coming out with the next update. Good Luck!

Rating: 5
A good modification.

Additional Comments:
Nikox, there're bugs on some nations. For example, the Romans can't research Military at the library. Look at your techrules.xml, maybe you can find the problem. For Americans, there're no model of barracks, maybe you can check if there're some XMLs that's wrong. Also, you can have the wonders a bit more unique, such as only Chinese can build Terra Cotta Army. H750.

Hi Hubert750,
all research levels at the library are limited by the age advance, except done for the civic ones.
For example: you cannot research the "Nation-in-arms" military level before you reached the modern age.

I've tested the Americans in different ages scenarios and always they was able to build barracks (this was done on a laptop were I installed the mod using the uploaded file).
Tell me more about the situation you have seen it happen (age, nations in game, etc.) I'll try to rebuild the same to check it.

About Wonders you're right I'll try to better re-disribute them in my next release.

Thanks a lot for your vote!!
I appreciated it and your (and everybody..)critics, as they will help me to improve the mod.
;) Nikox

News from anyone playing the mod?!?

No crash? No bugs? ..is it working fine???

[Edited on 11/07/09 @ 02:33 AM]

desertfoxER can I still play this and normal RON is I install?
File Author
to deserfoxER:
You can play RON outside the mod normally.
When you install the mod these files will be over-written in yours main folders:

into your "..\Rise of Nations\art" folder:
- iface_units_01.tga,
- iface_units_01_half.tga
- iface_units_02.tga,
- iface_units_02_half.tga
- iface_buildings_military.tga
- iface_buildings_military_half.tga

And into "..\Thrones and Patriots\art\" folder:

- iface_units_03.tga,
- iface_units_03_half.tga,
- iface_buildings_CTW.tga,
- iface_govs.tga.

So make a copy of them before to install it.
Anyway they can be used outside the mod without seeing any change as the new icons are in rows unused by the game.
desertfoxER OK thanks, also I played the mod, and I noticed some of the models were a bit off, and I may be able to get some other models for the ones that aren't as up to par as others, such as the Panzer4 compared to the stuka
File Author
It will be a great news to have more models in game :)
