    Exclamation The Asian Project

    Hello Gentlemen,

    My name is The Magical Man & I am a member of a new modding group called The 2 Blind Morons I am here to inform of our first project. Currently Named "The Asian Project, this mod will aim to enhance the soon-to-be-released Babarian Invasion. We are still in the planning & research stages, but this mod will aim to add several new factions and will hopefully extend towards China & maybe Japan.

    The objective of the campaign for this mod will likely NOT be whatever the Babarian Invasion, but will likely have the simpler abjective of capturing 40-60 provinces. This is because it would be rather pointless to attempt to get factions in the Far East to take Rome. Every faction will likely have further objectives of their own.

    Details are still being decided, & actual work will unlikely be able to start until the Babarian invasion is released in Britain(August sometime).

    The 2 Blind Morons are me(The Magical Man) & Count Vlad.

    Please keep an eye out for further news (likely to be posted in the Modding section) & any contributions are welcome.

    We shall post further details when they have been confirmed. After that time, we will be welcoming all contributions.

    Also, anyone who wishes to take a more "fuller" part in building this mod will be gratefully accepted. Please email us at theasianproject@btinternet.com.

    Since you can only use 21, or rather 19, factions which ones of the existing ones will you delete to make room for the Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Mongols? etc etc?

    Sounds like a good idea since a map size that you are planning is utterly hopeless to micromanage and/ or conquer. Are you planning maximum amount of provinces?

    Interesting, most interesting.

    What would be cool is if the scales changed as you go.

    First off local villages and towns. Take the province then province vs province.

    Then country vs country.

    Then continent vs continent.

    The campaign would move up in steps as the sides scale up.
    Our genes maybe in the basement but it does not stop us chosing our point of view from the top.

    "Since you can only use 21, or rather 19, factions which ones of the existing ones will you delete to make room for the Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Mongols? etc etc?"

    -As I said, we are still attempting to figure this one out. What may (most unfortunately) have to happen, is that we have to to have 2 separate maps, one for the Asian area, & one for the European area. We are hoping that it doesn't come down to this, and we are still figuring out our full range of options for this problem.

    "Sounds like a good idea since a map size that you are planning is utterly hopeless to micromanage and/ or conquer. Are you planning maximum amount of provinces?"

    -Yes, we hope so, however, once again we may have to split the map into two parts. This won't be too much of a problem, but would still take away the main aim of a lartge map.

    -I'm not entirely sure wat you mean, a little more clarification, perhaps?

    [QUOTE=PseRamesses]Since you can only use 21, or rather 19, factions which ones of the existing ones will you delete to make room for the Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Mongols? etc etc?

    UPDATE:

    We believe that there is JUST enough room for the factions on the Full map from Europe to Japan. We are, however, still debating & deliberating on how we shall be incorporating the several Chinese states, Indian empires, & Germanic states. Also, one historical point is that the "Mongols" didn't appear for a long time. We are starting at 375 ad, therefore the Huns, who originated from Mongolia, will be in control. We are still trying to decide how we split the Huns up, as in reality, there were 2/3 different Hunnic "groups", Those who still lived in Mongolia, Those who were starting to settle in Europe, etc. We know that most mods would put the Huns as one tribe, but we are thinking of every possibility.

    Thank you for all your interest.

    Our current thoughts are to do some major expansions to the map so it includes japan and maybe even africa and cape horn
    This will also include making new units, battlemaps, new Campaign aims, etc. This will create a very large variety of fighting styles, etc.

    For this, we will need further skilled indivisuals to aid us with this Project. Anyone interested should email us at theasianproject-requests@yahoo.co.uk.

    for anyone wishing to find further infotmation should email theasianproject@btinternet.com
    anyone wishing to contact me (countvlada) should emial theasianproject-countvlad@yahoo.co.uk

    information on the mod will be posted on this thread by me or the magical man

    Editing is a perk aquired with "member" status. Junior members do not have the facility. An introduction in the entrance hall and some cut-and-thrust debate in the tavern should get you closer to the member mark. Or...some moderator may take pity on you.....

    Right,
    1. I am from England.

    2. Map will not be started fully until more research has been done.

    3. Unit rosters & images will not be done until we know exactly the units we will be dealing with & can therefore balance the game more, while keeping it as realistic as possible.

    4. The game is set at 375 ad, like the babarian invasion. However, the map will hopefully extend towards China & Japan & will include INdia, etc. research is still being conducted & updates will be made as more info is gathered, perused & the bits we need picked from the info.

    5. History of the period is foggy in some places, but the basis in Europe will be the same as Barbarian invasion, with possibly a few minor changes. Ie, the Roman empire is beginning to wane, Barbarian forces are advancing on Rome, & the Huns have arrived in Europe after a long journey from the Mongolian region. In India, the Gupta dynasty is in control of the North, & is pushing on, In China, several dynasties are fighting for control, while Japan is finishing off Korea. We cannot get much info on Russia, but we are still searching & are putting the pieces together, & we have not had a good look at central Asia yet.

    This will be a long project, but will hopefully have such a large diversity in virtually every aspect, that it will be very much worth waiting for.

    Hope this will be suffice for you for the moment.

    -Yes, China is a problem, and we are currently in discussion about what we are to do about it.

    Thank you for your info on Japan, based on that, we shall probably scrap including Japan, clearly our sources for Japan were un-reliable.

    The concepts in the forum may be helpful, thank you for pointing me to them.

    if you got any china or jappan history question . i think i can offer some help .

    i think you should choose a period , that china is conquerd by one faction . like Westen Han B.C 206─A.D 9 . at that time , in my memory , just have no more than 6 factions beside china . inculding huns and other west factions and south barbarians.
    and the jappan send their first ambassador in 57 BC, and become a feudatory of china(i don't know how to describe in english , i think it must be said china accepted a country was far from mainland china , and accepted a barbarian faction submit to him .) .and japan began to get many china's civilizations from then on . well , i think japanese was so friendly as a barbarian than now :(

    Will this mod encompass both Europe AND eastern Asia? IF so, I'd suggest a later, medieval date, perhaps 1400s? This was when both sides were fairly united, etc. That Han Dynasty start doesn't sound too bad either, except for the fact that the Japanese would then be quite...uncivilised as yet. Up to the 2 Blind Morons though!

    First & Foremostly, can I apologise for lack of communication. This is due to Count Vlad being away on Holiday, & that my home internet connection has been down.

    Thanks for all your suggestions, however, we are going to stick with a 375 ad start as this means there are not too many war machines that need to be done(which would be too much trouble, we feel), & provides a good point in history, as China is in civil war, & the Roman empire is beset by7 the Sassanids, Huns, goths, etc. all in competition. This mean not too many European factions, which gives us further room for factions in China.

    We are unlikely to include Japan, etc. but for the future, at 375 ad, the Yamamoto ruled most of Japan as well as Southern Korea.

    We are currently researching for the campaign map. This is a painful process and any contributions to theasianproject-contributions@yahoo.co.uk will be greatly appreciated. remeber that the start date is 375 ad.

    Also, we could do with more text editors, skinners & modellers to speed the process along. again email us at theasianproject@btinternet.com.

    Thanks once more.
