I have recently nostalgically returned to Age of Wonders. Looking for some maps to play, I found so many wonderful, and pretty much forgotten creations. Whole series of maps by dedicated mappers, without a single rating because nobody gives a rat's ass anymore. A sad sight for a fan of any game.

So I tried to collect the better maps out there, the most interesting mods and all the custom campaigns, and make them easy to install and play. Here's the result:

Unpack the file in your game directory and you're done. It doesn't overwrite anything.

184 maps, sorted by multiplayer capability
all the 6 custom campaigns I found
Warlock ruleset
Tactics ruleset
Dragonlance mod
Arda mapset
Dev editor

Custom launchers for mods, their editors and custom campaigns. Automatic uninstaller.

All authors listed in the readme and all original documentation files are archived as well.

Tested to (surprisingly) work on Linux using Wine.

I haven't asked any author for permission since this is an ease of use pack that attempts to propagate their work and offer it in a comfortable way. No need to manually swap files around to play a custom campaign. No need to maintain several instances of the game to play different mods, or switch between them using different batch files for different Windows versions.

Where should I post this so that potentially interested people can see what AoW has to offer? It doesn't look terribly alive here and it seems to be the most active AoW place nowadays.

Anyways, have fun with this pack and let me know if anything is wrong with it.

Sounds great!

I think you can still upload files to this site so you should do that. I think people still visit here and download stuff.

I made a mod years ago which can be found in the download section combined with a map for it. Would be fun if you could include that..

Erikssons Mod

Thanks for your effort.

Life is nothing but a game
