Images are from Unsplash and ArtStation. When there's actually some more pictures to show the current ones can be replaced.

Only thing I might change is the header font (the thick text for Norse Wars and few other headers) - everything else looks epic but that font looks like Clash of Clans or something lol

Lol! Now I can't unsee it!! It was just the only Google Font that kinda looked Norse. I'll just switch it out for one that's not already hosted.

Hard to find any good looking fonts that are free. I guess this will have to do for now. My favourite is probably this one, but I'm not paying $10 for a font lol.

Think I probably want to see the main title font with sharp edges/corners

anyway to call back to the original AOM fonts.

Currently cutting my teeth with a VR arena game - was a good refresher for how to make a ladder from scratch which will no doubt look familiar. :P

Hi,

Just curious if there's any plan to revive fort wars for aoe3:de? Would love to play with people, and with the renewed interest in aoe3 overall, seems like a good opportunity to revitalize fort wars as well.

Does the old map not work anymore? Doesn't seem like they did anything new

with DE.

I'm starting to transition to working on this.  I'll start by hiring out bits and pieces to get foundation going.  Does anyone have recommendations for the following?
- 2D artist for concept art / illustrations
- RTS engine work or transforming the UE4 engine for that.  Current UE4 isn't meant for high unit count or pvp networking.
- 3D modeler for units with AOE/AOM aesthetic.

Hi pftq,
I make maps for aoe3 and have had some people inquire about old maps and scenarios. I found fort wars but it doesn’t load on DE and the code is, well, intense! Not sure if you’re interested in updating it to make it work for DE or not. I’m not sure where to begin tbh.

Also, not sure who I emailed about your np rush maps but I’ve been admiring your work from way back.

- vivid

Thanks - but at this point I'm more interested in trying to build it into a standalone game.  Constantly updating the mod to keep up with every patch or expansion that might get released is just not sustainable.

On a separate note - if someone has experience creating SMF forum themes, let me know, and I can pay to have it done.  Would be interested to get the forum + site maybe looking like it did originally at its peak:

Generally speaking, if anyone can do 2D illustrations or has someone they know they can recommend, let me know - we'll want to redo the logo and banner for one so it's not owned by Microsoft.
