The Lays of Assiriand - Rise of Nations Mod
A downloadable mod
Welcome to the mod for Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots of The Lays of Assiriand! With this mod you will be able to choose any of the civilizations of the Perennsil or their corrupt version and play in skirmishes. The conquest world is also added, can you claim the worlds?
This mod will only work in Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots (the expansion). I have used Rise of Nations Gold (that includes the original game and expansion) to make this, so I recommend that version.
Before to install it is highly recommended to make a security copy of the files that are going to be replaced to be able to play the original game again replacing again the files. If not, the original files of the game will be lost and to play to the original game without mod will be necessary to reinstall the game.
This mod is in english and spanish. In the download there are the files for both languages. The instructions to install them are the same but you can only install one at same time (as far as I know).
Each civilization is an edit of the default civilizations, generally changing the name and some appearance, letting the effects of Powers the same, but inspired in the culture of each civilization. Each civilization has the corrupt correspondence, being the only difference the powers, but it was something necessary to be able to make the Conquer the World mode more realistic.
The name of the four first periods has been changed. Now they are called First Period, Second Period, Third Period and Remembrance Period. The rest of the periods don't have the name changed, but any of these civilizations should pass the Remembrance Period. I recommend that always you play with these civilizations you put the limit age to that period. In conquest mode, although it appears that the final age is the age of information, I've tested it and I've made that the campaign ends a bit later than reaching the Remembrance Period.
Each civilization has two wonders (except the Nordmar, that only have one). In the description of each wonder you can read of what civilization is. Although all the civilizations can build all the wonders, I recommend to only make the said ones.

Aclaration of the conquest mode
The conquest mode is about o reclaim the world, that is conquered by the Corrupts. I haven't been able to make to always appear playing the pure civilizations, so if you appear playing as the Corrupts you can always get out and try again...
The folder C-Users-Username-AppData-Roaming-Microsoft Games-Rise of Nations is the name of the directory. You have to put the file of this folder in the folder of that directory. That file is to be able to use the custom colors (see the manual in the download for explanation of custom colors).
The folder C-Users-Username-Documents-My Games-Rise of Nations are the saved maps. Copy the interior of that folder in the directory and you will be able to play those maps, that are a preview of the civilizations.
Copy in the directory of the game the folders included in English (or Español). It will ask to replace. When it is done, the mod is ready to play.
