Needs T&P?: Yes
Rise of Napoleon ODA 1.0 (Tap) Mod

By: "One_Dead_Angel" aka "One_Dead_Villy" aka Ray Tang
Date: Jan 31, 2005

I would like to thank Big Huge Games for a great game and the resources basis
from which this mod is made.

Also I would like to thank Ensemble Studios for the building screenshots from
which I made some of the building textures I made for this Mod.

I would also like to thank Edilberto for helping with some historical research on the
Italian and Spanish Nations in this Mod, AoR_Blixt for some historical research for
the Danish Nation in this Mod.

You should put the files for this mod under a directory such as shown below:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Rise of Nations\
mods\Rise of Napoleon ODA 1.0 (TaP)

If you installed Rise of Nations in another directory, naturally you should have
a directory under the game directory called "mods". Under that you should have a
folder called "Rise of Napoleon ODA 1.0 (TaP)", with the mod files and directories
for this mod all under that.

Instructions (IMPORTANT):
To enable this Mod, just pick the mod named "Rise of Napoleon ODA 1.0 (Tap)" from
the Mods drop down menu choice in your game settings screen.

This mod is Multiplayer compatible, so you should be able to play it on MP assuming
everyone has this mod installed. However, it is not recommended that you allow
autotransfer during online startup since this mod is almost 8 Megs compressed.

This mod is playable with all game modes, and nations. However it can ONLY be played in the Enlightenment Age, so you can to set the beginning and ending age to that. Age advancement research is disabled, so if you do not set the age properly, you will be stuck. The way this mod has been made, you will not have access to units outside of those in this mod for the most part. In order to pick the new nations in this mod, you choose what that nation is based on however. Once you have ran the mod, and havent exited the game, mousing over the original nation choices will
show up the modded nation names and powers in the pop up help.

Also just in case the title of the Mod wasn't clear. This mod is only for the
Rise of Nation Thrones & Patriots Expack.

Changes in this Mod:
This mod has a total of 123 objects (103 units, 8 buildings, 10 resources) are reskined
Plus 2 new model.

* New Concept of Government Unique Units, so that certain Nation's Unique Units are only
available if you research a certain government type.

fit this mod better, so do not assume they are exactly the same as the original.

You can check out the units screenshots in the Mod Gallery, starting from this link http://ron.heavengames.com/gallery/album01?page=1 , there are over 24 screenshots!

You should also download the patches:
http://ron.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=551 Patch1) This is to fix a Building Graphics Bug for the colonial building art set used by Americans and Canadians in the Mod.
http://ron.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=560 Patch2) This fixes a bug that causes the Big Huge Map size setting to crash the game. So I had to remove the bigger map mod, in order to make all maps work.
http://ron.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=592 Patch3) This is a patch to correct a unit bug for the British from my Rise of Napoleon ODA 1.0 Mod, that gives the British the wrong free unit from building Barracks.

This mod is completely horrible, it has nothing new to offer, and i'm just being a complete jackass. THIS MOD HAS TO BE THE BEST MOD EVER FOR ANY GAME!

In fact, this isn't a mod, it's a whole new game all together. It has so much to offer that there is no way i can play as each nation and see everything new in just one day. This mod is going to keep me busy for another month...or maybe more...yea, definately more!

There are so many specific unit types and the new buildings just keep me staring at them the whole game. The Arc de Triumph is amazing, and the enabling of houses in the game as block houses and pubs, just creates a whole new dimension to gameplay, society, and everything else.

We only got 3 unit types per age- infantry, horses/tanks, and artillery in the original game.

Your mod gives so much more like 2 different cannon types, and about 7 different infantry types per nation.

Additional Comments: Keep up the good work! I just can't believe what an awesome mod this is.

It is a must-have for any RoN Gamer.

Well there is a good argument for a simpler design and system, that is one design philosophy. The intention of my mod is to be as historically accurate as possible with minimal sacrifices for gameplay reasons. But also make the one age a much richer experience which cant be done with a game that spans all of human history.

But it would be cool to see if scenario designers can do anything interesting with the mod.

Your directoy should have something like this, so move the files to your game directory as shown. The instructions should be pretty straight forward from the readme.txt file. Just follow them exactly. Just manually extract and copy and past the folders.

In the game you should select the mod as follows:

In the game you should select the ages as follows:
BillyChaka I used it with Empires Rise Again, and i dont think it makes a difference, but it looks kool

i dont think u can use it with another mod like that....one would take over the other. at least the way i understand it...Kingroy1's mod is a file replacement mod. My is an MP compatible selectable mod. So if you turn on my mod you shouldnt see any other units or skins that isnt from my mod, unless u started in another age then specified. But most of the units are disabled except those in Enlightenment age.

Aside from the fact that ENlightement is my favorite age to play, this mod is so sweet. Extra unit, new skins, new nations. Thank you so much for your hard work, it will be enjoyed by all of us that still play RoN
