Even after all these years AoE still manages to surprise! Yesterday, I discovered a new Global Victory setting while fooling around with a scenario. It is a remnant of the alpha version of AoE, in which this setting was available and luckily it still works with the retail version. This hidden mode, not available in the normal editor, allows you to use Gold as a Global Victory setting for all players!

You can download the new template here. It contains three blank default 144x144 map size template scenario files, each with a different set Gold amount: 1000, 5000 and 10000 Gold.

Please note that you should NOT change the current Global Victory setting (which is set to custom), or you will LOSE the hidden mode - so design carefully and just leave it alone. The amount of Gold cannot be changed unless you hex-edit the scenario. You can test the mode by using the "Coinage" cheat code. The setting works in both AoE and RoR.

Although it may not be as exciting as the Lengthen Combat Mode or the Unknown Civ, it certainly is another cool option to have.

Why did they remove this? It seems like a perfectly sound global victory option.

I didn't know this was gold amount, I found this field once but didnt try it out...
I can try to add a box to modify this in scenario editor so you don't need to hex-edit

Yeah, I was going to suggest you add this also to CustomizeAoE

Considering this is a global victory condition, couldn't it be enabled for MP games as well?

People still discover tricks in Mario Bros and Mike Tyson's Super Punch Out, and this means maybe we will get another decade of discoveries in the released game versions hehe.

The number of discoveries (or ruins/relics) are global victory conditions, but not part of RM /DM / MP options !

its possible to unveil so many secrets, the problem is getting into the code itself to find them. once i learn c++ i can look deeper into it maybe even create things using the customeditor that was created, it would overall be difficult though, even then i might need to break into the source code to do that. if i do do that i need to know has microsoft made any annoucement in the past that the source code is free to play with for this game? or is it still illegal..? as if it isnt legal i cant do it. i dont want to get into trouble...

MS wouldn't care one bit about messing with the code, as long as it's not used commercially and used for a profit. And messing with the code already has given us an enormous amount of new options, most notably the UPatch and CustomizeAoE
