About the Scenario
Dido, the would-be Queen of Tyre, has been forced from her city by her jealous brother. She ventures west, to lands once visited by the Phoenician god Melqart, to build a new city -- a 'carthage' -- where she will rule as queen.

Did anyone else figure that the first shot was setting sail from Tyre before reading the description or seeing the minimap?

Is the player color red? If it is, how did you change it from
the default blue?

Looks nice btw!

I really like it, I have a single complain and that is that the map is really small. It would be great if it were Huge or Gigantic!.

Besides that, I really like this!

Looking forward to playing the last few works of your I missed on the steam version of AoE DE, assuming its compatible. I disassembled my win10 rig since it was taking up too much space just to play AoE DE.

Wow, I'm honestly excited about this campaign.. and it really does take me back, since I did a lot of research on Dido, the founding of Carthage, and its history. Heck, you might as well call me some kind of guru with this stuff. xD

Looking at the mini-map, I'm pleasantly intrigued. Will you also include the Aeneas and Hiarbas storylines, as well as the conquest of Nora? It does seem so, since to my belief, you've added CP's in the regions of Troy, Tyre and Sardinia - as well as the island of Crete.

It also seems to me that - since you've added Spain to the mix, as well as the **southern region** - which means, I believe you might also have included the whole history of Carthage, from its dawn, to its doom in this project..

I'm honestly really curious with this campaign.

**yeah, I really couldn't remember what this region's called.. All I remember (roughly) was that it was part of the Roman Empire, and its king - I think - revolted against the Romans in 88 BC.. and it was this king's name (Hiarbas) that Virgil took and implemented in the Aeneid as the very king that Dido fooled, with her maths problem (The Dido Problem).. That part of Africa were also the same guys that ultimately (and indirectly) caused the destruction of Carthage as well.

This scenario was released back in March. No reason to speculate. Enjoy!

One thing I must warn you. Like many of my other AoE and AoK scenarios, this is a sandbox for your own stories rather than a scripted narrative. You don't have to settle in modern Tunisia right away, for example.
