old thread here

Welcome to Age of Mythology Heaven!


If this is your first time joining the site, hello! We hope you will enjoy your time with us as you become involved in the community and experience new possibilities with the game.

Before you do anything, it's a good idea to review the code of conduct here so you know what you can and can't get away with.

Why not introduce yourself to the community? Post a comment in this thread saying hello and tell us a little about yourself

If you have the Extended Edition version of the game, we encourage you to head over to this thread and post your steam name with us. This is also another welcome thread which may have some more info for you.

Now, to help you with navigating the site...


AoMH has many, fun places to visit. On our homepage you will see a column of such places on the left side. I'll quickly run through these with you:



This is the place to check out the reviews of the game, interviews from the creators, some past contests, as well as an introduction to the game. All news for the website is posted here as well.



Our forums are in here! The fourms are the #1 way to interact with aom-lovers alike and be seen as a part of the community. You can learn alot just by browsing them, but feel free to ask or share anything.



Download creations from the fans at the Downloads Central! We have a vast selection of scenarios, campaigns, mods, recorded games, and utilities which you may find very interesting. If would like to post a review on one of these, be sure to check out the review guidelines. You can even upload your own material to the site! And don't forget to check out our Downloads Spotlight for the most interesting and unique uploaded content from the fans.



Got a question about the game? These faqs and in-game info will give you answers to those pressing questions. If you don't get the info you're looking for, you can always visit the scenario design forum faq, and shoot us a question there.



Trying to brush up on your supremacy skills? This is the place for you. We have all sorts of guides written by the experts of supremacy. A lot of them have some good strategies to share, and many helpful tips. If you want to submit your own strategy article, click on Submit an Article.



This section is packed full of instruction on how to be a designer, and put your own twist on the game. Learn from some of the greatest and legendary scenario creators, modders, eyecandiers, and more. If you're new to designing, or looking to spice up your current creations, these are worth the read.



If you don't have The Titans xpack already, well... Kronos is not pleased. With The Titans expansion comes a ton of new features that you can check out in this section. Even if you have the gold edition already, you still may learn something that you never knew.



The Age of Mythology guide for dummies. 'nuff said.



You can grow to really appreciate these fancy works of art. Much of what you see in this section is done by the fans - artists, where AoM was the inspiration for numerous artistic creations. You'll see amazing hand-drawn sketches, out-of-this-world screenshots from the editor, as well as some attractive pre-release screenshots from Ensemble Studios.



Looking for a good laugh? Check out these hilarious gags from the fans known as "AoM toons". You are more than welcome to submit your own as well! If you're feeling funny, and AoM is on your mind, why not throw one together and give us some entertainment!



Last, and definitly not least, we are Age of Mythology Heaven. We take pride in giving you the best experience possible for as long as you're with us. We don't want you to feel unwelcome on the site, so stay true the guidelines, and we will assist you in your journey through AoM and AoMH. If you would like to contact us, there are some links in this section.


That about wraps it up! Thank you for reading and thank you for being a part of the AoMH community!

Hello!

I am browsing these forums since 3 weeks ago, although I have seen this thread just 5 min ago.

I am... Actually, you don't have to know my real name, so just call me "keyboard" -- or "key" as a nik.
I enjoy playing AoM:TT. This game is familiar to me since 2006. In 2009 I started playing it on a 1300MHz processor with 256MB RAM desktop (pretty old specs, I know). Despite the fact that lag level was over 100% it became my favourite game. Right now, I am playing it on a decent desktop and I can brag about the fact that it's lag free.

I hope I will have a good time here. I hope I can contribute with a little to this community

No, I don't have it. But it wouldn't work as expected anyway, as I don't have GTX nor Radeon 4850+. Most likely it would have lag and grrr -- I hate it

You could try it in the summer when it goes on sale if $7.49 works for you, as long as you have Windows Vista/7/8/10

Oh! Thank you for making me aware of this offer! If I'll have the money -- I spend my money on many useless things. For example, I bought some CIA headphones just because I liked the way they look --, I'll put it as #1 in my "To buy" list

There's definitely more than gameranger, although they do have some new additions for each civ, including one new unit

If your looking for general stability and competitive multiplayer, go to Voobly, although the mods here like to advertise EE, which isn't really worth it unless you own a super computer (and even then) or for nostalgia...or an overpowered DLC civ with a lackluster campaign that could've been done a lot better.

So if your looking for more players than GR (and balance patches, and 4 new random maps for free) but don't want issues with the crappy multiplayer, and it's small 50-60 max MP, and other stuff, Voobly is your best bet, apparently there's a 1000 player max there, and where a majority of the oldies went.

Hello, everyone! I've been playing this game since it came out and I've been relying on AoMHeaven for information almost as long.

I'm finally joining the forums because I've recently started a Let's Play video series for this game and thought some of you might be interested in it.

Then just get/Play AoT much like other age of expansions, they are a must have, except ToTD (unless you really love AoM/on sale) and The Forgotten for AoKHD (unless its for a summer sale)

Hey everyone, I played this game when I was younger, but I only started playing competitively recently :P. I already made one AoM themed video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DFvKvLGFX8&t), and I plan to make more soon, so I may be posting here a bit .

Hello and welcome to everybody!

I also wanted to play multiplayer on Voobly, but at that time something went wrong or I don't know, and I've just went to GameRanger. I don't know about other thoughts but GameRanger seems more accessible to me, despite the fact that it takes some time until the game lobby fills up.

Mister aom you have to update this page because the chinese pack section isn't here.

And I was wondering: will we have a chinese tables section ?

With all the modifications of the other civs, and the bonuses of the chinese units. I can participate

Hey everybody I'm 23 years old and I'm from Louisville Kentucky. I've played the Age of Empires games for about 20 years, ever since the first one came out when I was 3. I have vissued and used this website for many years but this is the first time that I've actually made an account and decided to be apart of this community. I have some fairly ambitious mod ideas for age of mythology that I'd like to share with the community and hopefully get some feedback, ideas and help. Can't wait to be apart of this community and get to know yall better.

Hey everyone, I'm 20, from Colombia

AoM is one of my favorite games of all time, been playing it since I was a kid

I've known about this site for quite some time now so I dunno why it took me so long to create an account here lol

I just wanna explore this site, search for online games with other people and expand the community really, it seems active still to this day which is pretty cool
