About Adrian

I'm a long time gamer / game designer. I have quite a few years experience with 3D Studio Max and Photoshop. I also have experience with Maya, Illustrator, and Premier. Since my days as a 8th grader I have made my own video games as a way to entertain myself. I loved the challenge to create my own games or re create a game I loved. Regretfully I never released any of these games from my childhood. This is how things were till my first publicly released game: Annex Conquer the World which I started developing in may 2010. I have this blog to talk not only about Annex development, but looking back at old projects as well as development for my next project.

Annex Addon Factions

November 15th, 2014 | Posted by Adrian in Annex: Conquer the World - (Comments Off)

Want to Increase your options for warfare? Well how about trying out these awesome addon factions!

Astro Marines

Created by fellow Glest modder Mr War, Astro Marines adds a new playable faction to Annex: Conquer the World. Mr War created the largest faction available for Annex, all with original unique units. They have the most heavily armored infantry in the game even without upgrades. With Strong, supporting Vehicles. However their increased firepower and armor means they cost more than similar units from the main factions. Astro Marines are now updated for Annex 4.0.


Astro-Marines are the elite of Earth Forces, descended directly from the first Combat Astronauts of 21st Century. Deployed by dropship to the far reaches of the galaxy, Astro-Marines establish bridge-heads and respond to incursions by enemy forces. Of the millions of recruits who apply each year, only the best make it through training; training fatalities are high!!!



Unzip archive into the “techs” folder in your application data path.
for example on windows: C:/yourusername/AppData/Roaming/Annex_Ctw/techs/
Once Installed it will show up as its own techtree option, and select “Astro Marines” under techtree in custom game menu.


Crimson Maidens

Yea that is right, I made a mod of my own game. :P

For fun I put together a faction using mostly re-skinned models from the other factions with some unused models. The theme is more of mecha influenced units, with of course female infantry. This faction is focused on infantry supported by long range combat vehicles. They lack in any heavily armored vehicles which can make prolonged battles difficult, however they do have numerous upgrades for their infantry, and vehicles. Currently they have a hero unit, Falcon but currently no super weapons.


With an increasing global conflict over crystal energy, leads to unrest and civil war in the areas of the world not governed by the three main powers (Alliance, Republic, and Shadow) of the world. Rebels, Militias, and Gorilla factions, secretly backed by the great powers, are growing world wide. No where is this more prevalent than in the Southern Wastelands. Dozens of tribes in the area waged savage war over territory disputes. In the chaos rose the Crimson Maidens, who fight to end the conflict in the Southern Wastelands. The Maidens are a female only army consisting of many victiums of the war, from those who lost their family, to angry rebels, all the way to elite military defectors who are tired of fighting for someone else’s gain. For years the maidens used bribes and secret support from all world powers to amass a military large enough, and advanced enough to dissuade any military action in the region. Their ultimate goal is to end the world powers influence in the region using the very equipment that they sold to them.

NOTE: I included The Astro Marines as a selectable faction, however you will need to install Astro Marines separately, otherwise selecting that faction will cause the game to crash.
