a modification for Rise of Nations: Thrones & Patriots
by Snake (www.s--l.com)
Unzip to Rise of Nationsmods; if you don't have a mods folder, you need to create one. In the game (either Quick Battle or Multiplayer), select "Uber Resources" in the "Game Mods" listbox. Enjoy :)
If you have problems, concerns, or opinions, you'd be best off contacting me on AIM. My SN is slserpent.
I wanted to add the new T&P rares for use in games, but that functionality appears to be hard-coded into the game. :( I will continue to work on a solution, though.
What this mod does:
-adds "elite merchant"
pack 50% faster
deploy 25% faster
move 33% faster
+1 to los
create 25% faster
33% more hp
groovy colors ;)
-changes to nubian nation powers and wonders
nubian merchant hitpoints, rare bonuses, and merchant cost nerfed by half
porcelain tower rare income also reduced by half
-rare resource bonuses
bonus effects have been increased and better balanced to make all rares worth fighting for
rare resource availability spread out between the ages to prevent huge rare war at the beginning of a game
oil and oil wells available in enlightenment age to prevent sudden onset of oil in upgrade costs, refineries still require industrial age
-rare resource bonus resources
most rares have increased production by 200%
some have changed bonus resource type
