Medieval Mod For 0 A.D. Video Game – Millennium A.D.

Millennium A.D. is a total conversion mod pack made for the free and open source real time strategy video game 0 A.D. which introduces two brand new playable civilizations (for the current version), specifically the Anglo-Saxons and the Norsemen. It resets the timeline of the original game from Antiquity to the medieval era.

The mod enables as such a timeline reset for the game from late Antiquity to firstly 500-1000 AD (a timeframe corresponding to the early Middle Ages) and then once more to 1000-1500 AD (corresponding to the late Middle Ages and the onset of the Renaissance).

The main menu was also changed and the wallpaper used for it was made by the DeviantArt user Alex van der Linde. The team of developers are currently also looking for some new members to help them out with graphics. Therefore, they’re seeking for graphic artists who can help them in the prospect of modeling new units and buildings (at the moment mostly with a focus on the Carolingian Empire).
