I changed job. There is no chance.
I can only give some suggestions.
I was thinking about new buildings
Harbour- It would be for creating non military units. It would be give more space in the future for new naval units.
Defense Office- It would take from granary all defensive techs
Blacksmith - All techs from Storage pit
Mining camp- for gold and stone techs
Mercenary Camp- Special units-Like Gladiators, Immortals etc-The would cost a lot gold.
Commander Centre- You can buy in here General or Admiral
Granary- agricultural techs
Storage pit- Wood techs
Market- Buy and Sell resources and buy Mounted Merchants

knightse72- I was thinking that Indian countrys could have bonuses for faster taming, armour, attack speed, attack, range etc. Cataphracts are much inferior too War Elephants. In the history there were many civilizations which used Cataphracts. Scytians, Sarmantians, Parthians and Bizantium etc. Speed bonus WE for Persian is main force for them.

The news about this new expansion (beyond indus), by the way will only come with the project completed. I ask the organizers if they intend to present this expansion to the producers of "Age Of Empires: Definitive Edition"? For to add units, civilizations, and desiner proper to these Indian civilizations was incredible. So it was with the Forgotten Empires, which began as a mod and became a new expansion, a precursor to others. I would love to see the expansion created by you become an HD expansion. You guys look the same.

Hello! :-) Happy to know, you are making a mod for Age of Empires with Indian theme ;-)
I got to this site by chance - was trying to make a mod for Heroes of Might and Magic, which will also have Hindu \ vedic theme. Actually, my spiritual master wants that we make computer game based on Mahabharata (you know, it is about Krishna, Arjuna, great Kurukshetra war around 5000 years ago, and after it one indian kind - Yuddhishthira and later Parikhit ruled whle planet Earth, well according to His Divine Grace A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, founder of ISKCON).
So, I was reading Mahabharata for around half year, and read till end of war, whn Bhima defeated Duryodhana. I made a big list of events in game: who killed\defeated whom. There are around thousand of lines\headers (with pages for each - refering to the scripture).
So I was trying to make a game based on Mahabharata in Unity3d game engine. I have SharpNLP library, which can analyze English sentences, - make part-of-speech-tagging etc. So the result of that program is converted to file, which I open in Unity game engine, and that is to be used to make game levels.
For example, "Arjuna killed 30000000 demons". This sentence should generate a level with Arjuna (I have to play him), and enemies - 30 millions of demons (in Russina versioon it is written 300 millions). Sl I decided that Heroes of Hight and Magic is more suitable to make such game, as I can simply make unit "demon", and simply have a number of such demons written nearby, which will reduce if Arjuna will slowly kill demons one by one (actually he can kill thousands at once).
As for Mahabharata itself, there are 4 main kinds of units are used (as I've read). It is similar to chess. Chess game comes from Chaturanga - indian game, which is also based on Mahabharata. Chatru means 4, and anga - means "legions" (in this conext).
So these 4 units are:
- simple soldiers with different weapons (I've got a list on inventories for each hero in Mahabharata, and I can share if you want). In chess game it is a pawn
- soldier on horse. in chess it is knight
- soldier on elephant. That's "bishop" of chess
- and soldier on chariot - with several horses. that's rook of chess.
So, I was thinking of making a mod in Heroes, but as it lacks these units on horses, elephants, chariots - I started googling - where can I get sprites from? (I like Heroes of Might and Magic 3.5 - there are programs for modding it). So, I found that Age of Empires has such units! ;-)
THis is long story, sorry for it. But I'ld like to know how are you going to make this mod? How do you make maps? Are going to make new heroes (like arjuna, Duryodhana - for Kurukshetra war), new units?
Basicly, I'ld like to get sprites from Age of Empires and put them as new creatures into Heroes of M&M 3.5. Or maybe just take warriors from Heroes - and put into Age of Empires. If that's at all possible.
Aim is to make a game (mod) with Mahabharata and Ramayana themes. These two stories are most important in "hinduism" as related with greatest avatars - Krishna and Rama. Another spiritual master (in ISKCON) wanted to make a game on Ramayana, and gives all blessings for anyone who wants to do this.

AOE is based on history and historical facts not mythology.you are better off modding age of mythology as it fits the type of game you want to make.
Regarding chess and chaturanga its basic classical era soldier types.even china had chariots carthage war elephants.

I do not say to reveal photos, they could just comment, like: we'll have a slinger upgrade, we'll have a slinger upgrade, or a new unit in the quarters, or else such a new technology, but without revealing the benefit it will bring. I also would like to know if there is any forecast to leave the beta?

Good afternoon. No more news about expansion? The only thing planned so far to realize was an upgrade of Scout and Camel rider, which can be seen in the music archive of the new expansion. You could give some more details of this project. Or at least one date for the beta of the new expansion?

Thanks for the clarifications. From the image to see that you guys did a great job with the Indian buildings. I'm in a hurry to see the new units.

With HG potentially closing soon, where would this interesting topic move? AoE official forums?

Hopefully some sort of release before the Dday.It would be a waste to see this go down before HG closes down.

Good Morning. I wonder if the project for expansion of age of empires beyond the indus is over? There was news that the site of age of empires Heaven will be closed. It would be sad to know that the project will die with the site. Sad to imagine that this project would have new units, campaigns and technologies, and we would never know what they are.

OMG, where are these news about aoe heaven being closed? This would be so terrible. A lot of players here have done much more for classic age 1 than their creators!
