Brave New World v2.0

Author File Description
Kirky Picardo PLEASE NOTE THIS MOD REQUIRES THAT UPATCH 1.4 IS INSTALLED ON YOUR COMPUTER!



It has been one year and one day since the brave new world v1.0 was made available. It was definitely time for an update! And after approximately 10-11 months of working on this, I now feel it is ready for release. There has been a ton of content added which I hope BNW players will enjoy. A fixed version of BNW 1.0 is also included in this package which is essentially the v1.1 version which had been making its way thru cyberspace. The only changes to this version are necessary ones in the unit bodies section of the editor so some fixed ILBs are set up properly. I felt it important that this should be included as well.



For players unfamiliar with the original, I should explain that this is a mod which places a great emphasis on heroes. Developing your heroes is an extremely important aspect of game-play and if you do so you will find they are capable of great deeds. This time around, as well as having distinctive portraits, each hero also has a unique body graphic and gone is the generic rider-type for each race. Expect to battle with great looking heroes who smoothly jog around the battlefield with very fluid and realistic animations.



This mod also is very much a tactical combat mod. The battles you have to fight are much more difficult than in the normal game and you will have to defeat powerful creatures as you struggle to expand your empire.



As players of the original might expect, there are many new and exciting creatures which have been added. Some are beautiful while some are bizarre, and still others are downright scary!



You can also expect to find many new artifacts, new map structures, changes to spells and abilities (plus a few new ones) and much, much more!



Finally I will just say that the mod comes with an easy install (same as the original) and this time around we have included some good documentation for you with illustrated tables and lots of information.



So prepare thyself brave one, for the new world beckons!

Well i would just like to say that this is the first mod i downloaded and best i have played so far. If i am playing a non-ladder game this is my first prefrence. Online play is great and really it is not that slow i can get through a 1vs1 in arond 3 hours. So i would encourage anyone who has this mod to come to gamespyarcade aow sm room and play it; so many people have it downloaded but only a handfull play it online that i know of.
And any work being done on new versions of this mod are eagerly awaited by myself and many others so keep up the good work kirky and im sure you will be sainted.

I'm impressed with the many new units that are added in the BNW mod. The graphics and animations for the units are perfect, and the amount of new, interesting, weird or funny units is staggering. Both the normal building tree for the different races is changed (although many of the old units are still there, some of them with unchanged stats), but there are many new units in the building tree as well. However, most of the new units are seen as guardians or for recruitment in structures.
The RPG style of BNW makes it somewhat like AOW1, in which you could also get super-powerful heroes, but there still are units out there in BNW which can take on really powerful units.
I do miss some more custom maps for BNW, but we'll have to appeal to the HG community for that :)

Loads of new stuff, not quite sure of balance yet.

P.S. I've changed my rating, because clearly using TC allways depends on players, not mod. Much impressive work here, especially in graphical sector. Units are fitting, but not allways the most unique. Heroes really give strong RPG element, and this makes excellent mod for hero builders.

Aqui lo mejor son las unidades, , pero los heroes se repiten mucho, sin embargo hay gran cantidad de unidades nuevas y con novedosas habilidades.

AWESOME mod. I've tried all the others on here and found them all to be a little sloppy and shallow. I gave up on Dwiggs mod at version 3.0 so I can't really comment on the latest version.

Maybe you could add a bit more content in the next version. Hehe!! Just kidding :) Keep up the amazing work

Incredible and extensive selection of units. New heroes are fantastic and add an element of novelty to the game. This has become my default, and all other mods pale in comparison.

As a veteran player of AoW & mod tester, all i can say: Best mod ever !
After quite a lot of hotseat & single games, i found the gameplay changes & tweaks very nicely balanced.
So i strongly suggest to Kirky : think twice before making any gameplay changes to your mod.

Congratz, this mod is a Masterpiece.

Well It's my second rating, I don't know If I can do this, but my first was for the old version. I have been playing a lot this months and I recommend sincerly to play AOWSM with this mod. Maybe I'm not a champion of strategy in AOWSM or a skilled modder I'm a simply occasional player of this wonderfull sage of games that thanks to this mod plays again to AOWSM. Try it.

Thanks a lot Kirky!
