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:

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...

I don't know if this helps with the crashing problem because it just happened to me. But whenever i get done with a battle it shows my home screen for a second and whenever i exit out of the game it says something like rome total war had an error. trying to fix the problem or at least something along those guidelines.

I just downloaded the mod and when I went to play on the campaign mode as the greeks I was losing approx. $4000 a turn and when i went to check upkeep was in the thousands range when I only had like 6 units max in the settlement. I went into the export_descr_unit folder and some of the unit's upkeep were in the 1000 dollar range and that was just for my infantry.
