Appologies for the long waiting, I haven't really been into modding, so here is a quick release of what has been done with the new factions etc.
Before I start on anything else, first of all, I am fully aware that some people wouldn't like to see another Roman modification. As we have currently within the community two already outstanding mods. Rome at War and Romae Bellum.
Really the only thing I can say so far on that matter is that the reason why I started on this is because I am really interested in the time and I got somewhat hyped by the Rome series (;o). In anyway I will do my outmost best in whatever way possible to make this mod fun on its own way.
This project has been under development by me alone, as a sideproject. As I somewhat took a break from the scening on the GoT modification due various reason. (lost hype and interest)
In this mod there will be a lot of use of OSP's as I am not a scripter or a modeler/texturer Though I will try to make as much new stuff as I am enable to do. Starting to learn more and more how to re-texture what helps a lot. While doing the scening myself and some other minor things. It is my actuall first "major" project that I have worked on my own so don't be to harsh on me!
There is still much to think off on how things should be done. I just wish to create something that wants you to have an enjoyable time .Any suggestions are really appreciated and also suggestions on quests or a story line would be really appreciated!
If you see anything in a screenshot or anything else that is work of
someone else and his name is not on the list please inform me.
There is always a chance that I forgot someone.
So for a while now I've seen various reports where people have to travel all over europe just to do a simple quest. This is caused by the simple fact that the Roman Empire is huge.
In the next patch we will see a huge change in this. The Roman Empire will be divided into 5 factions.
1. Roman Empire (Italy)
2. Province of Gaul and Brittania (France/England)
3. Province of Greece and Dacia (Greece, jugoslavia, romania, hungary / all that lies to the east of Italy and West of Turkey)
4. Province of Egypt and Turkey (Turkey, Israel, Egypt)
5. Province of Spain and Africa (Spain, North-Africa, Cyrene)
The differents with troops have yet to be seen. And so far will be pretty much the same. I might just include some new cohorts with new shields for each faction to have atleast some difference but Im a bit tight when it comes to equipment so I'll have to see.
This should make it much easier to do quests in the Empire, and each province can focus on its own bit of the Empire.
I hope that this will be a good improvement, if you have anything to add to this please do so! Also these names are just randomly made up ("province of Gaul and Brittania") because I suck at making up stuff. So if you have better names for these then go ahead!
