So I did a lot of work last summer towards an Elves 2.0, but alas I've very much lost interest in this game and have been back more recently for modding purposes only. This was something I was working on on and off, but ended up putting aside to work on Egypt Remastered.
I don't plan to finish this overhaul, but it is well progressed with many models new and enhanced, textures fixed, building scales mostly fixed, a lot of new animations, and some new sounds. I also restructured the faction multiple times(mostly because of the AI), and it's very roughly balanced. The faction does require more resources on purpose, but it's units are a lot stronger now. This means that the resource-cheating AI(when it plays the faction properly) can be quite brutal.I'm releasing it as is, as version 2.0 Alpha. Feel free to modify or reuse the faction or it's source material as you wish. I request, but do not require credit for myself.
