Interactive Build Order Guide

A series of interactive tutorials for learning and practising build orders. Includes 10 build orders, each with step by step instructions in both text and audio, and a scoring system which will mark you at several benchmarks leading to a final grade (A+ to F). Credits and thanks to ZeroEmpires for voicing these scenarios.

Build orders included:

- Scouts
- Scouts - Skirms
- Scouts - Archers
- Archers
- Men-at-Arms - Archers
- Drush - Archers
- Drush - Fast Castle
- Fast Castle - Boom
- Fast Castle - Knights
- Fast Castle - Unique Unit

Be warned that these are somewhat difficult scenarios - these are mainly intended for experienced players, who are already practised with core game mechanics. Players should be fluent with hotkeys to be able to keep the TC working throughout, whilst managing various aspects of the economy and producing from multiple military buildings.

Also, it is not expected that you will get a good grade the first time. Rather, you should expect your grade to improve only by repeated practice. Start by trying to master the Dark age - try to achieve at least a C here before continuing with the rest of the scenario. This is mainly about having minimal idle time on the TC. (If you lose a villager to a boar here a restart is recommended, since the triggers are generally based on villager count.)

If you want to play these scenarios on a different map, simply open them up in the scenario editor and generate a new map to practice on. Only, be sure to use the Build Order Arabia map that comes with this mod. For written versions of the build, see my guides on Steam.

Finally, these scenarios are intended to be enjoyed! Don't beat yourself up because you find them hard - they are intended to provide a serious challenge. There are many valid ways of enjoying this great game, so these scenarios won't be for everyone.

Have fun :)

PS: For those of you that don't know how scenarios work... start a game in Single-Player, and choose Custom Scenario as the game mode.

PPS: These scenarios should only be played with Vietnamese - or Saracens for AoC (or any civ without an eco bonus)

Are there only supposed to be four sheep in each scenario? Also, when it tells me to make 8 archers I reach 8 and it doesn't mark the objective complete. Yes, I had bow saw and fletching, and had also upgraded to crossbow. I'm not sure why it's not triggering.
