Topic Subject: Unofficial add-ons, press kit, and an unseen wonder

Today I have added three new submissions to the miscellanious section of the Granary. You may have at some point in time come across these, or maybe you even own one of them. As you may be aware AoE had several unofficial add-ons made by different companies not related to Microsoft or Ensemble Studios, which contained new scenario's and campaigns. I have one of them, Conquest of the Ages. Rasteve, one of our former staff uploaded a bunch of these in the past. Here is another two:

Conquest of the Empire

The Danish love AoE. So much so that MMA (the company who made this) released HIGH quality scenario's and campaigns on an add-on CD. They are beyond your wildest dreams, they are that freaking good. *waves hand* THESE ARE THE SCENARIO'S YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR. Do check out the cool intro video though, that does make it worth the download.

Virgin Territories

Oh yes. Even the name sounds so damn cool (and masculine)... top of the line stuff hidden in here, not even kidding! Yes, there IS actual quality in the shitload of scenario's and campaigns on this add-on disc. Guess where they got most from? That's right, many of them taken straight from our Granary back in the heydays. You will find some familiar stuff on this one. I don't believe everything is stolen though, but I could be wrong, don't have the time to go through them all. Maybe you do? Worth checking out.

I also added another official Gamestock Press Kit, which as the name suggests, was given to several press agencies and magazines to show off the game at the time. Features some pretty nice cutscenes and a different AoE logo.

And now for some development related stuff, quite overdue I may add. Some time ago I came across a two-page advert of AoE which features a Greek Wonder not seen before. I intended to upload this earlier but kinda forgot about it, until today.



The building is pretty cool, though, we cannot see the top part of the statue. Do you prefer it to the Collosus wonder we get in the final? Seems like ES tried some different designs for Wonders, as you may recall one of the other wonders which had several revisions is the Pyramid. There may be something more beta related coming soon, by the way. For now, check out the 2 page advert below:

If you want to beta-test yourself these days you can try the AoEIV beta, if you become an insider on ageofempires.com. That's all for now!

Does uploading these break copyright rules?

Well, the "Virgin Territories" pack is composed to a big extent of many AOE Heaven Games Granary scenarios....

I bet the top of the statue was like an Aristotle-like bearded face, what do you guys think?

@Anterior: For the scenarios definitely no, those can't really be rights protected and if anything the distributer broke the terms and conditions of the game by charging money for those. Maybe the intro movie is different but I doubt it.

The companies are defunct, also what Fisk said. In any case if they want it removed, no problem.

Statue does indeed seem to have a beard. I like how the priest is chanting to the villagers, yet not converting.
