  1. So, I've been researching a bit (and sorry for my late reply again, but I'm gonna have an exam in July) but I have a few questions: 1. What kind of language are they supposed to speak? Do we have any alternatives? 2. What about Hero-Units? We don't know any Minoan heroes. 3. Who wants to help with the Minoans? Just PM me
  2. 初めまして。クリスと申します。僕は日本人じゃないけど、大学で日本語を勉強しています。どうぞよろしくお願いします Dann bin ich nicht der einzige aus Deutschland hier und herzlich willkommen
  3. So far what we I about the Minoans: - Known for their palatial buildings - Great trading-Network (to the Middle east, Egypt etc.) - Undeciphered script - Worshipped primaly goddesses - Were probably conquered later by the Mycenaeans - Against the common believe, the Minoans were not peaceful and had soldiers
  4. Ok I can look after one Hmm... AFAIK, this was used for ritual purposes, but maybe can figure something out
  5. Seems like nobody posted here for a long time. Well here's my emblem suggestion I can also look for further information about the Minoans
  6. That'd be great I agree with you Lion. For someone like me it's hard to understand without visuals
  7. This may be off topic, but what about the Minoans and Mycenaeans ?
  8. I did some research (by looking at my old notes and searching through the web) and made this brief historical overview A brief overview of the History of Japan: From Asuka to Heian Asuka-Period (552A.D. – 710 A.D.) / Nara-Period (710A.D. – 794 A.D.) -Buddhism became a state religion in Japan -Adoption of Chinese characters, in Japan known as Kanji -Chinese (Sui and T’ang Dynasty) pattern of centralized government through various reforms, codes etc. (e.g.Taika Reform, Taihō Code and Ritsuryō system) -Establishment of the first Japanese capital: Heijō-kyō (today known as Nara) [Capital was modelled after the Chinese capital Chang-An] -Tōdaiji was built Heian-Period (794A.D. – 1192.A.D.) -Capital moved from Nara to Heian-kyō (known as Kyōto today) -Court dominated by the Fujiwara-Clan (mostly through marriage) -Gradual decline of Chinese influence -Considered to be the Golden Age of Japanese art, especially for its poetry and literature -Invention of Kana, syllabic Japanese writing system (Hiragana and Katakana) -New Buddhist sects were imported (e.g. Tendai and Shingon Buddhism, esoteric sects) Later Heian-period (around 1068 A.D.) -Go-Sanjō Tennō assumed the throne (determined to rule the country by himself) -Decline of the Fujiwara-Clan’s power (They failed to control the new Tennō, because his mother was not a Fujiwara) -Two clans, Minamoto (Genji) and Taira (Heike), gained power -Rise of the Samurai class -Genpei-War (Conflict between Taira and Genji, which resulted in the fall of the Taira) -Establishment of the Kamakura Shogunate and thus ending the Heian-Period
  9. Ah yes that was the part which gave me a really painful headache xD. I still don't really understand how to do it. but hey, just being the noob here xD
  10. I check out the Document and it looks awesome. (Thank god I'm not the only one who thinks ancient Egyptians were looking like people from the Horn of Africa) But I'm surprised I didn't see any wonder so far. (or maybe I'm just being blind xD)
  11. My Hero proposal Minamoto no Yoritomo: The first Shogun of Japan and Founder of the Kamakura Shogunate http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minamoto_no_Yoritomo http://www.ninpo.org/picturearchive/historicalportraits/minamotoyoritomo.html https://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Minamoto_no_Yoritomo
  12. Thanks for the clarification niektb So basically: Muromachi-jidai, Sengoku-jidai, Azuchimomoyama-jidai Alright, I'll do my research then. PS:But what about the Kamakura-period ?
  13. As for the Japanese wonder, I would suggest the "Tōdaiji" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T%C5%8Ddai-ji http://web-japan.org/atlas/historical/his13.html I know that Age of Empires 2 too, used this as Wonder but you simply can't deny it's magnificence. Actually, this building (Daibutsuden) is from 1709. The original one was about 30% wider. Model and reconstruction of the original temple
  14. Sure, I'll do my best Ok, I saw that the timeframe of Millenium A.D. is from 476 A.D. till 968 A.D. So it means that it comprises 4 periods of Japanese history: 古墳時代 : Kofun-jidai (approx. 300 -552) [A.D.] (maybe too early?) 飛鳥時代 : Asuka-jidai (552-710) Note: Instead of Asuka and Kofun, you can simply say 大和時代 Yamato-jidai (250-710) 奈良時代 : Nara-jidai (710-794) 平安時代 : Heian-jidai (794-1192) note: jidai, basically means era or period in japanese Not sure If he can count as a hero, but the first person that pops into my mind from the Asuka-Period would be "Shōtoku Taishi" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Sh%C5%8Dtoku
  15. Looks awesome, but I didn't work for me I downloaded it, read the manual how to implement it, yet it didn't work. Don't know why it doesn't work.
  16. Nice. The Japanese Besides regular history, I also study Japanese history, culture and language. (僕は日本語をしゃべる事が出来るんだ。) If you need any help on that, just ask me
  17. I'm from Germany, my nickname is what some egyptologist believe to be the ancient egyptian pronounciation of the name Ramesses (although some say it's Rimisisu) . My GMT should be GMT +1
  18. Thanks Hephaestion I'm sure to make myself useful here but I think I'll help out with the Egyptians first. (Since they're my fav. ancient civilization) Oh and sorry for my late reply, but I've been extremly busy this week -_-' Next week, I'll be able to have enough time to help out with research and stuff.
  19. Hello Council of Modders, I’m Riamesesa and I’ve been playing 0.A.D for almost or year or so. Also a big historical RTS fan and been playing ‘em since the days of good ol’ AOE 1. Anways, I actually wanted to help you out with the Mods, but unfortunately I don’t have any programing skills nor do I know how to model in 3d or anything like that. Sorry. (I can draw, though xD) However, if you’re still looking for a researcher, I’m your man (I happen to study history at my university). I’m familiar with History of all kind, be it Ancient Egypt, Middle Ages ect. Besides that, I speak German, Polish, English, Japanese and somewhat Ancient Egyptian, in case if you need a translator. I'd be happy to be part of your team. Cheers Riamesesa
