Default Any Machaka love?

I noticed DaveCG seems to be off and running on an Early Age mod of Machaka, but does anyone know if there are any mods out there for the vanilla Machaka? It seems such a shame that they don't have any nation specific summons or spells, and I have not heard if KO had any plans to update them in any future patches so I thought I'd check with the mod community to see if anyone had tried modding them.

Well I'm working on Machaka for Dom 3 K (spider walkers, spiders and spider spaceships ) but it's not released yet except for an alpha version in the dom 3 K thread.

And I seem to recall someone made a spider god pretender for them something with an A. It's in the signature of one of the more regular posters here, possibly endoperez.

Can't remember much else.. have you tried a forum search?

You know, I was half thinking about rejazzing up MA Machaka alittle! :P

More on topic, I don't think I've seen anything for MA Machaka other than endoperez god spider pretender, which is totally awesome.

DrP did a EA Machaka before me and he's done a LA one too, which I must admit gave me the idea to make my own, hopefully KO which get round to it after he's finished with yomi/jomon's dragon stuff and I think he said something about do Tcchi-china stuff after that if I remember right, oh well, maybe something will come out the wood work.

Don't forget there is a reserved nation slot for EA Machaka. My guess is that when EA Machaka is being built, MA Machaka will receive some love at the same time .

thank you guys for the replies. I did try a search in the forums but didn't find anything specific to MA MAchaka. Suppose I'll just wait patiently for the devs to get to it when they get to it.

Personally I think it would be cool to have Early Age Machaka be able to summon a litany of lesser gods, cumulating in with size 6 giant spiders and the lion headed titan pretenders which broader selection magic. Of course the problem with these lesser deities is that they often compete with the pretender for the affection of followers and would be saddled with varying levels of heresy depending on their power.

For late age, as a change of pace, it would be interesting to see Machaka as one of the few uncorrupted nations. I'd imagine that it would be historically based off of Mali and Songhai. The backstory could center around the Pretender vanquishing the Black Sorcerers from the god mountain and founding the great city of Timbuktu a haven for alchemists and philosophers. Tuareg light infantry would form the core of the nations military, its capital heroes would come preequiped with golden bracers of protection, and magic wise death would largely be replaced with astral.

I suppose this is as good a place as any to ask, but what myths would you say inspired Machaka, I know in the book it says...er...can't remember atm, but it did say something about the phatom comics as well, I was hoping someone could point me towards a good book or site or something, being as everything for the EA mod I've done has been completely pulled out of the void that is my mind, and based around the two words "Lion Kings" in EA Machakas nation slot, not much to really go on...and I'd like to tie some real world myths in, could be fun.

Machaka really could use more balanced Province Defense. It's the reason my love for them faded.

The epic of Sundiata would probably be your best bet. Historical king but with much legend thrown in, in terms of magic and such. I did however read an excellent hellboy story, Makoma, that had an african setting. Not sure if its based on solid mythology but it would be quite workable in game terms (Hellboy relives the exploits of a legendary hero, who overcomes and befriends the giants of the forest, mountain and river, defeats a fire demon, and a powerful necromancer before he is forced to fight an apocalyptic dragon and leave the world reborn in the wake of the combat.
