Historical Accuracy / References

Even though this MOD's timeframe is mixed, it is still intended to be historically accurate. The units, are designed to be as accurate as possible. Much research has been done to ensure all units are properly named and armed. IFor example, the persian Kardakes, which very little is known about is depicted as follows:



Persian Army

Greek Army

production halted.

This project has been discontinued untill further notice. As a result, there is no longer any support for this mod. You can still download and enjoy the beta version. Thank you to all of you who supported this mod. Prince of Persia out.

Sorry about the long break but i need time off for school reasons. I will be continuing my work on this mod. I have made some minor change so far and i am planning to replace roman faction units now as well. I wanted to thank Rise of Persia team for assisting me on some Persian and Greek units skeletons. I have fixed some bugs, changed Parthia to Persian completely and added historically accurate Persian territories as pictured below.

Coming Changes:
- Parthia now completely Persia
- New campaign map to represent historic western Persia with Greeks
- New factions: Greek cities will be split into Sparta and Athens; Brutii and Scipii factions removed.
- New hoplites for Athenians and Spartans.
- New Cretan archers
- Tweaked some cavalry
- Spartan cavalry
- Every unit in game will have different attributes (attacks, defenses, charges, etc.)
- No more spartan generals, just Spartan Elites and Greek generals
- New flags and banners for Greeks and Macedon's
- Historical battles: Marathon, Gaugamela and Chaeronia, possibly thermopylae

I will be releasing a new release soon which will dramatically improve gameplay, adds new units and modify's campaign map units and settlements for a greco-persian war settings (500BC era). Parthia will be completly converted to Persia with all new units. greek cities get even more different hoplites and seleucids, egypt, pontus and armenia will be removed from the campaign NOT from the game. Rome will play very little role in the campaign. It will be mainly egypt vs persia vs greece. As for gameplay cavalry are a lot more powerful now. Even spartans get cavalry. Unit costs have been accuratelly balanced based on factions. more to come stay tuned...

Is their going to be a new map and if their is what will be all of Persia or just the western half. Maybe their should be India to represent Alexanders invasion of India.

hey princeofpersia great mod, here are a few things that need tweaking as they dont work ingame, im sorry if people have already pointed these out. when you right click on a unit of either corinthian or athenian hoplites (on the campaign map) where all the information appears, the new decoration on the shield or the new helmet does not appear.
secondly, when u do custom battle, on the Theban sacred band, and i think the corinthians when u scroll ure cursor over them it says "unlocalised text placement" or sommit like that

Finally can i ask u make thermopylae a historical battle? xD tyvm
