Hello, iam planning to add an addon for Age of Mythology: The Titans, iam planning to add a fourth culture to the Greek side, in a way, it will be a new civilization, but it will be a sub-culture following one major goddess. I'm planning to create the Amazons, and have them as a fourth culture for the Greeks, basically it will include these features:

  1. All human units will have the same textures, build buttons, display icons as the other greek cultures (the Amazon Hoplite will have the same build button and display icon as a regular hoplite and so on), but will have the sound file of the female greek villiger, attack sounds, move sounds, guard sounds, and death sounds. Only female villigers will be created from the town center. a couple more heroes as well.
  2. all buildings will stay the same, all naval and myth units will stay the same.
  3. Now heres the big difference: ALL THE GODS WORSHIPED BY THE AMAZONS IN THE DIFFERENT AGES WILL BE FEMALE! For example: Athena or onother goddess in the calssical age, Aphrodite or another goddess in the Heroic age, and finally Artimis or a different goddess in the mythic age, and have Hera and the Major Goddess.

Bassically i need to know what files i need to edit in order to make this mork, and what will i need to do to create the new goddess, their myth units, benefits and powers. If anyone has any ideas on what i should do then feel free to post ur sugestions, any help will be greatly apriatiated.

that's not a mod at all... that's just moving existing files around....

Last time I checked, a mod was anything that modified the game, so even copying and renaming files around would be classified as a mod.

Well, it took some work but i've finally got a new unit for my mod made, iam just having truoble getting to appear ingame, i got it working when i first made it, then i finished the anim file and tried adding it to the techtree. And that messed everything up, i dont know weather it was that exactly, or the new entries i made is some other xml files, either way, i was forced to unistall and reinstall both games, now the unit nolonger shows up in the editor, i just tried to add it again and i got an "initailisation failed" error, so i dont know where iam going wrong. could some one please tell me where iam going wrong!:help: :help: :help:

when you add the unit to the proto, After that try uploading it to xmb with amoed. If an error occurs when changing the proto into xmb then you put the unit in wrong. That happened to to me alot

I tried that, but i still got an initialisation failed error, i clicked on ok and my game crashed to the desktop, it happens wen i get to the first splash screen, the one after the intro movies, it beeps, my screen flashes and a dialog box pops up with the title: Age of Mythology. and a messege: "initialization Failed", i'll try some more digging and see what i can do, in the meantime, if anyone has any further sugestions/help advice, then i would GEATLY APPRECIATE your input. Thank you.
