Thread: The Age of Faith

    The Age of Faith

    The Age of Faith

    Ever since Httt, I have been working on a high middle ages mod from the end of the first crusade to the regular end date. So far, I have the majority of the old world done excluding sub-saharan Africa and India. I plan on fixing a few bugs and releasing the alpha version by Friday.

    Alpha Version .05Read instructions on my last post
    http://www.gamefront.com/files/20686...e+of+Faith.zip

    Changelog V.01
    -Incorporated the Dao Lite map and the Dei Gratia mod for the base of the mod
    Added a new government for baltic pagan tribes
    -Created a mostly working faction system for the Kara Khanids and I am hoping to use it as a template for other steppe hordes
    -Added a decision for the mongol Khanate to form
    -Added a decision/ event chain involving a strong Chinese Dynasty wishing to reinstate the old Persian Empire
    -Added many new countries
    -Adapted to work with 5.1 official patch


    Changelog V.015
    -Added Swabia and Franconia
    -Added Coptic Egypt revolter and culture
    -Added Kipchak and Cuman khanates and culture
    -Fixed Mongol Khanate formation decision
    -Added Reform the Roman Empire decision
    -Added the Crusader States to the HRE
    -Added a Triggered modifier for the small crusader states

    Changelog V.02
    Incorporated the KOJ mod
    Added a Turkish government form for Rum
    Added a second Crusade decision for the Crusader State
    Added a Imperial March government form for Imperial territories
    Added a imperial decision that will be available after 1150 to establish the Teutonic knights in either Poland (with Polish approval) or the Northern March (Brandenburg)

    To do list
    Fix India
    Add many more historical events and missions
    Make a event chain for the conversion of the Baltic
    Make a system for the division of Poland
    Make events for European nations to auto release and cede middle eastern provinces to Crusader states.
    Add decisions for the Holy Roman Emperor
    Add Flags to many countries
    Add event for Jin-Song Alliance and Liao Migration
    Add decisions and events for the third through ninth crusade
    Fix localization

    What I need help with
    -Indian History
    -African History
    -Ideas for new factions and internal factional events, missions or decisions
    -Any one who can help with flags or coat of arms for medieval countries
    -All ideas and suggestions are welcome

    Credits

    Wait what? o.0 I hope that's a typo...

    Anyway cool idea for a mod, but remember that more countries with factions = greater strain on the system. I think 'factions for most countries' might be a little excessive...

    I believe that factions have great potential if they are used correctly and are not game breaking like Mings. The issue with Mings was they all crippled you in one way or another, in my mod, my experimental version currently has six which have pros and cons but are not crippiling or too powerful to off balance the game.

    Also,

    Thats not a typo, at one point the Tang dynasty did attempt to send an expeditionary force to dislodge Persia from the Caliphate. Another reason for it is I love Sassanid Persia.

    Factions do have great modding potential, but I meant 'strain on the system' as in slowing down the computer/game. Drastically.

    I love Sassanid Persia too but I don't think it's realistic for China to reestablish a Persian empire. Anyway it's your mod, and it would be really fun...

    The faction thing is more experimental and mainly meant for the major powers, the whole Sassanid thing is just so that I can play real Sassanid Persia instead of a revolted Zoroastrian Persia with all of the Islamic names.

    Oooh, a specifically built Zoroastrian Persia? Yummy. I'm swamped at the moment but will send you some ideas for Zoroastrian events/decisions if I get a chance.

    If you go through with this, India will need some pretty interesting events/dynamics. At 1100 AD India will be completely Hindu with some portions of Bihar and Bengal being Buddhist. Muhammad of Ghor invaded India in the late 1100s creating the Islamic belt (Delhi-Bengal area) The Buddhist diminished in Bihar and Bengal. After that Islamic Sultanates popped up in various regions of India. However, the majority of the population remained Hindu throughout this entire time period. So maybe reduce the missionary chance for the Indian region?

    Here are the links:

    -A restored Sassanid Dynasty
    -Another Tag will have cores across central and northern Persia which will replace the Islamic Persia cores

    I have one last event I want to change and I will be uploading the working alpha version tonight.
    When the mod is uploaded it will be in .rar format and called the Age of Faith, inside the .rar the folder will be called Dei Gratia due to me being unable to find all of the places in the interface that need to be changed.

    looks really good just a few minor problems (historical inaccuracies actually) you seem to have left out the 4th crusade and its aftermath. any plans to add it in? it would probably take (in addition to the added tags) a little tweaking of the map and maybe adding a province or two in the area around the sea of marmara.

    You really should rename your files to something besides Dei Gratia.

    Yes I plan to add a fourth crusade bookmark and event.

    You should change the name to something besides Dei Gratia
    The reason it is called Dei Gratia is because the interface files need to be changed before I can change the mod name, but it is on my list.

    Also, if someone could tell me how to get screenshots in window 7 I would be extremely grateful.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Coptic Egypt,huh?Nice.

    A suggestion:make Mongols able to become(somehow)Nestorian Christians.I know many Mongol tribes were Nestorians,and Gengis Khan himself was practicing his own Nestorian-Tengriist syncreticist cult.That would be awesome.Angry horse archers practicing an Assyrian religion.
