    Features

    Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun!
    That's the statement of the greatment in Fall from Hyrule maps.


    In keeping with one done-to-death feature from the Zelda series, each map you play on will have its own dark side/future clone/twilight realm sort of thing. Civs who utilize the mirror shards properly can essentially double their real estate, sneak past previously unpassable passages, and wreak havoc on another civ's present by altering its past.

    Other Stuff

    Hundreds of new techs!!!


    There are also plenty of new wonders based on locales in the Zelda series. Dungeons, for example, will make your cities take an extra 1-3 hours to invade, especially if it's a Water Temple.

    The lucky ones will even be able to win the match by aquiring the ~~Triforce~~ by building the Tower of Din, which requires the Temple of Farore, which requires the Edifice of Nayru, which requires the Tower of Din!


    The above strategy will also help you out in the upcoming Rhye's of Eternal Darkness mod.

    So..um...yeah. Look for updates!
    The End and
    Post April Fools!

    And imageshack is being arse slow today, so have patience.

    Wow. This looks sweet. Wait till morning and I'll actually think of something intelligent to say. Love the old games. The new ones are meh. But orcnia(sp?) of time was great. lol a mod hasn't made me this giddy in ages.

    Would love to have a closer look at your tech tree, but the link to the bigger picture isn't working.

    If the picture were any bigger, you might see that it was actually the regular tech tree cloned a bunch of times.

    Actually, it was April 3rd, but it still looks as if he meant it as an April Fools Joke. I guess I should have read it through instead of just looking at the pictures :p

    The funny thing is: in order to fool us into believing that he's working on a mod, he really did mod the game, if only to a small extent (making a leader and a map).

    Maybe in your time zone ;)

    Also I often misunderestimate how long it will take me to write threads.

    Well, the Hyrule map is a real one I did last year, but it played like crap.

    This would've been quite the mod.
