The Portuguese Civ Mod


Firstly, thanks for downloading this beta and helping us to improve the Portuguese Civ

The Portuguese Civ Mod is a little add-on mod, which adds one Portuguese Civ and
does changes in the gameplay.

The Portuguese Civ Mod is brought to you by GreatWarriorz Clan, and was only possible thanks
to the help of many contributors!

What’s new?

. A new Portuguese civ is added with unique bonuses and features
. Scout unit redesigned! Scouts cannot attack anymore, but they gain special
abilities after researching a tech at the Castle!
. Wonder powers were added! Now, when a wonder is built, something in the civ
will be greatly improved, but this power is lost after the wonder is destroyed!
. Support units added: Teaming with any civ will allow you to train the support
unit of that civ!
. A new building: The Tavern, which can train mercenaries! Of course its
usefulness will be extended later, but not for now…
. Cartography is now totally free and automatic!
. An Arquebusier upgrade added to the Hand Cannoneer. Only available to
Koreans, Portuguese, Spanish and Turks.
. A new builder ship unit added that can build sea towers, walls and gates, thus,
taking sea warfare to a new level!
. At Imperial Age, each civ can now train a Hero in the Castle. This hero, that
represents an important or a legendary person of the civilization, is very strong
and can only be trained once!
. A new architectural set is added to the Spanish and to the Portuguese!
. Some campaigns have been patched a bit, either to fix bugs and nonsense, to
make them compatible with PCM or to make them a little bit more historically
accurate (like the El Cid Campaign)

New Gameplay features

Redesigned Scout

As you might already know, scouts in the Portuguese Civ Mod have a reduced
function. Now they really act as they should act: as scouts, only for scouting and
exploring. Boring, don.t you think? But, it.s not only that: after researching the “Tatics”
technology at the Castle, they become invisible in the minimap, and gain a special
ability that varies according to the type of scout.

There are three scout types:

. Military: After researching the “Tactics” technology, it gains the ability of
Sabotage: it can kill a siege weapon or do a great damage in a building. This
ability has a reload time of two minutes. Used in: Britons, Byzantines, Chinese,
Franks, Japanese, Koreans, Persians, Portuguese, Saracens, Spanish,
Teutons, Turks.
. Raider: It gains the ability of Plundering after researching the “Tactics”
technology: the scout becomes able to enslave enemy villagers and plunder
enemy Town Centers, stealing the resources of a certain player. Used in: Celts,
Goths, Huns, Mongols, Vikings.
. Mesoamerican: It gains the ability of Sacrifice: eagle scouts become able to kill
all units in a certain area. This ability has a reload time of three minutes. Used
in: Aztecs, Maya.

WARNING: Thanks to AoK limitations, in order to use the abilities properly, the scout
must be in no-attack stance.

Wonder Powers

Have you ever noticed how Wonders are useless, even at games with standard
victory? Now they aren.t useless anymore! After building a Wonder, it enables a
Wonder Power, which greatly improves your civilization! You can find the list of wonder
powers at the end of this file.

Installation instructions

Just run the installer and follow the instructions. After that, just double-click in the
“Portuguese Civ Mod” icon created at your desktop and enjoy!

WARNING: You need of the 1.0c patch in order to play the Portuguese Civ Mod.
