attempts to think before posting....

An X-pack for AoM would probably only have one culture, considering there are only 3 to begin with. Another thing is that with the extremely different cultures that they have already made, and that none of the cultures share units or they at least have different graphics, I think all your points are moot. AoK:TC didn't ruin the game for everybody, it added feutures that made the game even more fun to play. I will agree that the aztecs didn't look right with 2-handed swordsmen running around in full armour, but having the aztecs as a civ made the game more fun as a whole. anyway, not making an X-pack is not the answer, as all of the things that made AoC not as good as it could be are taken away with AoM's style.

Yes, 'cause everything, really everything would be different!

Where's paradise?...............AoM is....In war there're only loosers!
Paradise is in your heart - ..gonna come! Love is the soul's blood!
open your heart and you'll be in paradise!..There's no uncertainty, there's only hope!

Stormboy:
Making X-packs is first of all an economic decision: you have a successful game which millions of people bought, so you have a huge market in your hands.
It also keep the players busy with the game, so while the sequal comes, players won't totally forget about the previous game.
I don't think an x-pack slows down the development of the next game: I think most of the work on the x-pack is made by the designers, artists, scenario-builders and playtesters, while the work on sequal in an early stage is done mostly by the engine programmers. So it keeps the rest of the team busy .

Well let me say this:

Is logical ES will make X pack, why? Well, as many people here has been saying, if AoM's successful (impossible it won't be), they are going to launch the X pack.

I said these because I didn't know what could they add, but now Sandyman told me why can they add Chinese, Mesopotamian, and I know why they're going to add Meso American cultures.

Well, I gave my suggestion about the Israelite Culture but they say is too controversial, well, it could be difficult to add it anyway, single G-d and single MU.

Now I'm convinced X pack's not bad idea because I've been told the new aspects that could be added.

Sorry if I offended any one, or annoyed any one.

Not offended, just don't agree with what you said.
Mainly the reason that the Isrealites would be controversial is that the game is called "Age of Mythology" and on the surface looks like there saying that Judaism is Mythical, or false. Ensemble has also said that they would not use any widely practiced current religion, which Judaism is.

Hope you like the forums,

To make that point of AgeofMe a little more solid... I am writing a paper right now about the epic of Gilgamesh, and in it I am comparing the Bible and Gilgamesh. I started out trying to write about the Greeks and the Bible compared to Gilgamesh. The problem was A)It was too wide of a topic and B)It made it sound like I was calling the Bible an equal in truth to the other two mythologies. I didnt want to make the Bible seem inferior and "just another book" so I just compared Gilgamesh and the Bible, it makes the Bible more distinct from the others and seem more of a Holy book than a random belief.

Though I than He - may longer live
He longer must - than I -
For I have but the power to kill,
Without--the power to die--
The only reoccurence in every AoM games you lose, is you.
