The next (and sadly final) version of the Age of Italy mod is finally ready.
This version is pretty much complete on the data changes, save for some balancing. But on the graphical side a lot more was intended. Deathmatch games are fully functional, random map is not (no AI files).
The mod is FANTASTIC!!!!!Good work,team...
But will you make the graphics better?I want to say for example: The skirmisher is a VILLAGERR?!?!
The Palace is like a Library :P ,
And please... a gold miner as a Merchant WAGGOONN??!?!?!?
Anyway the mod is supeeeeeeeeerrrbrbbbbbb but please change the graphics, ok :D?
AND PLEASE!WHY 5 STARS??? I GIVE FOR THIS MOD 1 Mil. STARS :D ...

Well, the scale of the changes are huge. This goes beyond changing the names of buildings and so on. The technology tree system is completely different and everything is clearly geared towards the history of Rome. This really is the only total conversion mod for Age of Empires (at the time of writing).
This is a cancelled mod but the huge amount of changes still make this mod playable. Despite not having changes to the graphics, there has been graphical changes to the interface (such as new icons for units, technologies).
The game plays at a different pace to the original Age of Empires. You can create larger armies due to differences in the way population is calculated. The technology trees are also larger per age, meaning that it is feasible that you spend longer in each age.
As already mentioned, the changes are geared towards the history of Rome. I would recommend checking this mod out if you love Age of Empires and the history of Rome.
Being an incomplete mod does mean that there are limitations but overall the mod is playable and so very different from the original game.
The only reason I didn't give full marks in the review is that firstly the tech tree should need more explanation (i.e. it would be nice having a tech tree diagram for each civ because it is so different from the main game) and secondly the installation process doesn't appear to work well on later operating systems.
Even though the installation may cause problems, you can manually update your Age of Empires by copying over a handful of files.
