    Default AoVaF releases some of the stuff

    This download is not a mod release that would be enjoyable to play, it's the latest package of our not finished work. It can be used by other modders, but in it's current state isn't considered playable. Other modders can use the material in the package, as long as proper credit is given to the AoVaF team.

    http://rapidshare.de/files/11404315/Pack.zip.html

    The AoVaF mod looks like it's dying, but there's a possibility of the team rebuilding. I won't be the leader due to RL undertakings. Unless anyone in the previous mod team announces a desire to take over the leadership, I hand it over to Csatadi because he's the only team member that has been active the latest few weeks, after the discussions of ending the mod become more serious. I don't know if that means the entire team has lost interest, or if it's merely that my leadership has been very inadequate the latest few weeks due to my lack of time. Therefore I can't make a statement on whether the mod is dead or not - there might still be a good chance of rebuilding the team, but only if one or more additional skinners can be found since we lost one of our two skinners and would therefore only have one skinner unless we get more. In any case it probably got a greater chance of surviving under a leader that can dedicate more time to it.

    It would be a shame to see this mod die. But since I'm not that great a moddeler or scinner or scriptor i may not be that great a help.. but if there is anything i can do as an archaeologist and historian please let me know

    It would be a shame to see this mod die indeed. You did a great job on this mod i hope you will find some people to help. The decision of releasing the material - my huge respect.

    It might not be at a stage where you consider it fun, but is it basically playable? I mean just for custom battles, for example.

    Not much unit stats balancing has been made, only a first rough draft which hasn't even been tested. I might later release a version where you can play the vikings in custom battles with better balancing. But only maybe. The biggest hope lies in someone else deciding to take over the leadership of the mod. I can still help, but I have too irregularly available spare time to be able to lead the actual project.

    Thanks Legio the offer. I decided. I dont accept the leadership. I dont devote much time regularly for a mod.
    If anybody have the time and enthusiasm to continue I can help to organize the work for greater efficiency like an eminence grise. Actually I have a lot of idea to the mod.
    This person can send me an e-mail (not PM!) via the totalwar.org if interested.
    Until this time anybody can send stuffs to the forums.
    I dont judge the skinner problem such serious. AOVAF need now one or rather two stable modders with enough free time and many researchers in different fields.

    And, Legio, dont worry so much. Im sure you enjoyed working on AOVAF and only this is what does matter. You know this is just a game after all.
    I think you had right waiting for MTW2 anyway. The AI is so annoying bad yet. Maybe they do something with it.

    Well, I'm sorry to hear all this, but thanks a lot for releasing what you have so far. I'm really interested to take a look at it, but every time I download the file it says the fileshare says it's invalid. Can you put it up at 3ddownloads or somewhere else?

    I tried the link. It works. Dont use download managers.
    Quite surprizing for me there were 24 downloads in three days!

    I remember so you was the guy who made a little mod enables to swich between factions during the play, isnt it? Where can I find it? I lost the link. Your all faction playable mod is very tricky.

    Click on the link, scroll down and press the Free button. Wait in line (the countdown), then the link will appear. Please tell me if it still didn't work and I'll upload it elsewhere.

    I'm working on something that could possibly make the mod go alive again. I won't reveal any details yet though. You're still allowed to use the material though, as long as credit is given to the AoVaF team.

    I just get the following, even from two different computers:

    Download-session invalid. Please click here.

    Possible reasons:

    Download-session expired. Direct-links last a few minutes for free users and a few days for premium-users.
    You requested this download-session from a different IP than yours. If you use AOL, try a different browser.

    I did the all factions mod for BI, but it was based on work done by Myrddraal.

    This is a excellent mod. Perhaps for those factions which are less important, perhaps you could use the units from another mod. The Arthurian mod does that to some extent. Please keep going.

  20. #20

    Default Re: AoVaF releases some of the stuff

    ya man, keep going. just make a ite version to start with.
    drop factions that havent been worken on a lot, make them rebels or remove them.
    make a smaler map maybe even. for example a map like in viking invasion or viking invasion + france germany poland

    drop all the details that are not implemented and put them on hold for a possible later release etc.

    any single part of this mod is great...if only a quarter of the originally plans are realized in a first release it will be still something i wait for.

    try to combine work with crusader,medieval and byzantinum total war..and the baltic crusades or any mod that fits into the time frame roughly

    sorry donno how to edit.

    so this pak.zip contains what?

    about 20 viking units. what else?

  22. #22

    Default Re: AoVaF releases some of the stuff

    A bit of an error I came across:

    A unit, I am not certain of which, but it states the file "Aovaf_englisc_archer.tga.psd" is missing, nor was it included in the folder.

    In fact, it seems like all the englisc are missing, yet no where in the Descr_model_battle does it demand a englisc texture, which is what is confusing me.

    The Englisc skins have not been included. Just a few skins.

    We have an agreement with Arthurian TW. With Byzantium also, as the leader(me) is also the leader of Byzantium TW.
