I'm Charger24; I had an account from years ago on the old forum. I did some minor work for War of the Triple Alliance
a long time ago, (before it became Wars of Liberty
) mostly with home cities and writing. I also did some even more minor things for Napoleonic Era, the other big AoEIII mod. Once I was involved in an ill-fated spinoff mod entitled The Northern Wars
. Aside from some pretty swell Irish and Scottish concept art, flags, and unit design, it was a resounding failure and really hammered home the sheer amount of work required to put something together as huge in ambition as WoL. Cheers to Tahattus, and all the dev team; WoL really is a marvel.
I don't ever play online, so I like the Paraguayans because turtle city, it's great (and easy, because I'm a scrub). But just for raw creativity, I'm a huge fan of the design of the Egyptian and Mapuche civs. I am terrible at playing both though.
