Conquer, rule and manipulate the Roman Empire with the ultimate goal of being declared as the "Imperator" of Rome. Set in a time when the mighty Roman Empire emerged to conquer the known world against powerful enemies, when gladiators fought to a bloody death in the Coliseum; when Spartacus defied the might of the empire; when Hannibal led his invincible army and his war elephants across the Alps to strike fear into the very heart of Rome itself; and when Julius Caesar finally smashed the Barbarian Gauls. This was a time of brutal confrontation between civilisation and barbarism, and of civil war as the ancient world's only superpower turned on itself.

Description

Return of Atlantis is a modification for Rome: Total War 1.5 which adds a vanilla-esque faction of Atlantis to the game. Little to nothing else about the original game has been changed, thus preserving the classic experience that is Rome: Total War.


Rumours come with the wind from the west. Whispers of a growing power. It was far too long ago that the city of Atlantis had been seemingly lost to memory, now only a legend - a myth.

But little do the peoples of the world know, that just beyond the horizon, Atlantis has been rebuilding, becoming more powerful than ever before. In secret the Atlanteans had been studying the great powers of this time; taking close note of their military tactics and technologies, whilst developing some new tricks of their own.

The time has come to strike. To reclaim the Empire that was lost, and more. The time has come for the return of Atlantis!

This game is modfoldered so no need to worry about overwriting your other stuff.

Installation instructions:

Step 1

To install the mod, you first need to unzip the file and place the atlantis folder directly inside your Rome - Total War folder.

Step 2
------------------------------------

- Make a copy of your Rome - Total War shortcut
- Right-click on it
- Select "Properties"
- At the end of the box that says "path" or "target", type -mod:atlantis
   - This should go after the quotes in that box with a space, like so:
...\RomeTW.exe" -mod:atlantis

You should now be able to double-click the shortcut and run the game.

Note: Whilst doing this you can also use the "Change Icon" button, navigate to your atlantis folder, and change from the standard RTW icon to one of the new one provided!

For Steam Users
------------------------------------
Complete Step 1 as above, putting atlantis in the relevant Steam folder:

Windows XP it should usually be
C:Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/Rome Total War Gold
Windows Vista & 7 it should usually be
C:/Program Files(x86 or x64)/Steam/steamapps/common/Rome Total War Gold

Then to play the mod from the Steam Library:
Right click on RTW in the steam library.
Click 'Properties'
Click 'Set Launch Options...'
type into the box '-mod:atlantis'

And then run RTW. To run regular RTW again delete the '-mod:atlantis' command again.

Enjoy! :)

I got the mod into the game and it worked, but every time I tried to end the turn it would crash, I don't know if I got a file wrong or what.
