A mod from Purple Design Studios



The Roman Legionary is a single-unit mod brought to you by the modders of Purple Design Studios, and will be released for both vanilla AoM, and AoM:TT/Gold Edition, as with all of our projects. The unit may be featured in a future scenario project, with no specific plans yet.

==========================


This mod has many features, including the following:

  • Brand new historically accurate down to the weaponry models and animations
  • Detailed, hand-drawn textures*
  • Testudo formation (pictured below) created using unittransform technology
  • Unique historically accurate attack animation
  • Relatively low-polygon model for an enourmous amount of simultaneous units (338 polygons)
  • Roman pilum, the designated weaponry of the Legionaries of Rome
  • Player color-compatible texture




    Some re-enactors creating the testudo formation, as featured in the Roman Legionarius mod


    ==========================


    Working on this project are:

  • Purple Puppy - Model Concept
  • The Purple People Eater - Textures
  • Sir Dundo- Animations & Models
  • Petar Tasev - Scripting
  • The Purple People Eater - Proto and Techtree Modification
    ==========================


    Screenshots
  • Beta - Single-unit shot
  • Beta - 12 legionaries displaying color compatibility
  • Beta - A group of legionaries
  • Beta - body texture
  • New! Gourgeous up close... - from RC1 testing
  • New! ...And it fits right in from far away! - from RC1 testing
  • More on the Legionarius Homepage!

    v.1.1 - 12.92 MB

    what no screenies of the new forumation lol just messing great job but imm sure you heard that a thousand times .

    maybe you shuld do a follow up mod pack with something else to do with the romians like some kind of boat or something but like yu said in your forums sir dunno is tired of this modpack or something like that lol anyway just a suggestion


    oh and the reason i said maybe a boat is the romians made their famouas ram boats when they found the old warship from carthage on the shore . ( sorry for spelling )

    Just to clarify, it's "Sir Dundo".

    Anyways, there are lots of modders that could do ships and boats quite easily, so it wouldn't have to be just me.

    Actually, I did take some testudo shots last night.

    1, 2

    Now before you go apeshit about it, I understand that this is not how it was traditionally done in the ancient Roman Legion. This is just about the best you can do using the Age of Mythology engine, and if you think you can do better, I would love to see it.

    .. What? I meant that your screen is dark.. I.E. your Monitor. Your Pixels Display. The way things look when you take screenshots in AoM is dark.

    This, like any other unit add-on, will not work online.

    Any mod that edits any file in the 'data' folder will not work online, unless of course the other player has the mod as well, which is highly unlikely (because no one wants to download a mod just to play online, no matter how awesome or well-integrated this mod really is).

    In reality, this project is at 99%! The only thing that's left is zipping everything and uploading, so it should be up by tomorrow (or whenever the AoMH staff decides to accept it. ).

    The Roman Legionarius v1.0 has officially been released and is currently awaiting staff approval!

    The project that is far past its due date and has been anticipated to be incredible since it was created a full year ago is finally here and playable! Coming to a Military Academy near you!

    The new price of the unit is 60 food, 20 gold (for armor) and 10 wood (for that huge shield and the 12ft long pilum!), which is now based on their monthly pay as Legionnaires instead of their yearly denomination (225 denarii).

    Yes sir, and it fits into the game seamlessly. It currently has the strength to take on 2 standard hoplites at once, and survive with exactly 1 hp.

    Ladies and Gents, after months of hard work, overcoming impossible obstacles, and edging on giving up, Purple Design Studios presents to you, the people of Age of Mythology Heaven,





    Click on the above banner to download The Roman Legionarius.

    Also don't forget to check out the Legionarius Homepage for exclusive info, and "Behind-The-Scenes" looks at the making of Purple Design Studios' Roman Legionarius, including original unit concepts and our very first alpha.

    And of course, without the downloaders, there would be no will to make our mods the very best. As our team motto states,

    "Quality never goes out of style."

    1.1 - The update patch is released!

    In this version..

    Just a bunch of uninteresting fixes:

    - xpacklanguage.dll was missing from the original release
    - Building attack was inaccurately high
    - Testudo legionarius HP was lower than standard
    - Testudo legionarius's speed was too fast for walking animation
    - Vanilla proto icon name fixed

    maybe you should do a follow up mod pack with something else to do with the romans
    hmm...

    I am AgeofKnights, my orginal account was accidently deleted from the HG server, Vorpal Designs has shut down so I'm here as Darth Balor, If a mod/admin can change my name to AoK, or something like my orginal name I would appreciate it.
