Well if it isn't Cynocephalae all over again. Maybe the Greeks know it, since there seem to be a few men routing on the flanks :o)

Well actually the Macedonians won this one, but that's because they had triple the numbers. With equal numbers the Roman swordsmen will make quick work of the phalanx, though the phalanx can still inflict a lot of damage, especially if you place them in a square with the stand ground stance.

Well there isn't exactly a Persian faction, since this mod is set after the fall of the Persian Empire, though there will be Parthians and Seleucids. However at the moment we are only working on the Romans and Macedonians, so we don't have anything from other factions to show you.

But dont you guys want to make the most important battles from the classical times, I was thinking in maybe for exemple Marathon, Arbela, Issus, Mycale, Erectria and other what you think, well some of them need a persian army but maybe you could replace the persian for the Partians I dont now or use the original persian faction for the game but that is probably bad idea since the mod would lost is historical authenticity and accurace, Ok for sure you will hink in someting nice, I just want to have the oportunity to play amazing large historycal battle scenarios in this game :).

This mod's time frame starts after the death of Alexander the Great, so we won't be making any of the classical scenarios that you mentioned. However, there are still plenty of battles from the Hellenistic period that could be recreated for this mod. We just need someone who could recreate them for us.

While Athenian solders have been previewed in the past, Athens may not appear in this mod because they were politically insignificant during the Hellenistic period. Those previews were from when we were planning to include other periods such as the golden age of Athens and Sparta. I still would like to include one or two city-state factions, but by this time there were other more important cities such as Pergamon and Syracuse. However I have read that there was one alliance against Macedon that included Pergamon, Athens and Rhodes, which could allow for a very interesting unit roster.

Also, thank you for your compliments about the ships, we really appreciate it!

Thank you! The answer to your question is actually neither. There isn't a proper way to get more than 3 soldiers in a unit, and there doesn't appear to be a way to include custom formations. You will have to manually arange your soldiers like this, by putting them in the stand ground stance, and then you can select the units, right-click and hold and then scroll your mousewheel to change the density of the formation.

Description

Macedon is able to train three different phalanx units. The Phalangitai Deuteroi (right) are Macedon's levy pikemen. They are better than their counterparts in the armies of other successor states, but are still lacking in armour and ability. The Pezhetairoi (centre) are a professional force of pikemen that form the backbone of any Hellenistic army. They are well-trained and equipped, making them troublesome to defeat. Lastly, on the left are the Agema Phalangitai, who are some of Macedon's most experienced and able soldiers.

Although these units form a potent force, don't make the same mistake as the successor states did historically and rely solely on your phalanx to win battles. The Macedonians will receive a number of other units that can be used effectively in conjunction with the phalanx.
