AoE II Development Collective

Hello there!

Siege Engineers is a development collective around Age of Empires II esports.

Some of our members develop various tools and services related to the game. On this page we showcase some of those projects. For a list of supported projects, check out the Projects page.

You can also join our Discord server to chat with people and learn more. We strive to work together, share ideas, and teach others. You are also welcome to just lurk around if you’re shy.

Adapting data mods for new patches made easy

The upside: You no longer need to fiddle with Advanced Genie Editor 3 to painstakingly recreate your data mod when a new patch drops.
The downside: You have to write C++ code 🙃


Age of Empires II Map

Find tournament maps or showcase your own creations!

The website hosts a vast collection of random map scripts, many of which were included in tournament map pools. Users can upload random map scripts alongside images (usually full map screenshots) for anyone else to download.

Additional functionalities include a map pack creator as well as the option to automatically add custom game modes like Sudden Death or Exploding Villagers.
