Hi folks,
Just a very quick post to let you all know that we have a new pack in the Marketplace called 1AD. It's basically a middle eastern themed pack with basic buildings, robes for the male and female characters and some useful props including a withered tree, some market stalls and crates & boxes.
We've been having a lot of fun with this pack during testing, creating such scenes as:
• Certain Python-esque comedy sketches involving bartering over a beard.
• Films based in the desert (the scarf from the Criminals Pack is perfect for keeping the sand out)
• Dwellers on binary system planets, and their adventures in droid trading.
Alex has put together a lovely little movie promoting the pack that you can see on the content pack's page, that you can view by following this LINK.
Also, look out for more matching 1AD costumes and buildings in a complementary Moddingstorm Pack coming soon (not to mention all the other content that is available by following our users' links in the "Third Party Mods" section of the Marketplace).
We all hope you get a lot of use out of this pack, and we can't wait to see your movies!

Is the ability to climb a hill included in this pack? The promo vid opens with that. I didn't realize we could even construct hills (without doing something in modder's workshop)!

There may have been some clever tricks performed by Alex to get the character to climb the hill, and I'll bet navmeshes were used!

What a cool pack! This'll also be great for doing art fairs or outdoor music festivals.

Very delighted to hear there'll be more 1AD packs. Now that we have a fig tree, we need a withered one.

I believe a modder made a staircase that is or can be made invisible. A little hunting might turn it up.

Thanks for this pack! Great job one and all who contributed! I haven't had time to mess with it yet (I bought it the second I saw it was out), but I'm guessing that the pots and such aren't hand held? If not is there a possibility of getting a hand held set in the future?

and it looks a bit like this:

Carrying a pot on the head would also be great. Hey, it's just a big, heavy hat, right?

Such a relief to see some more official content appear. And it is as good as ever. Thanks folks.

The recent question about long hair for men reminded me: To do 1 AD properly, we need long hair for men. That was the style for Jewish holy men, called nazirs, who took a vow not to cut their hair. Most people in the Roman Empire had Roman-style short hair, but many did not. Maybe holy man hair could be in the next pack?

I paid with points without any issues.
