Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Will you add faction X ?
A: We're not making any promises concerning upcoming factions, we follow our planning and eventually new factions are done.

Q: Will you add X item ?
A: If it fits our time frame then we will most likely add it as long as it is relevant, if it doesn't then we won't.
Items we won't do:
- Square Scutums
- Segmentata
- Corinthian Helmet
Stop requesting these please.

Q: Faction X is so OP/UP (overpowered/underpowered)!!!
A: That's not a question. Also we tested everything against everything in multiplayer a dozen times already and as far as I'm concerned it's relatively balanced. It seems to work decently in SP too so if all you have is one random empiric occurrence where you got your ass handed to you that won't be convincing of a faulty balance.

Q: Is the mod dead?
A: No.

Other things worth mentioning:
We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames. We do have a planning for what we are doing (most of the time) so there is no point in suggesting to us what our next move shall be. Thank you for reading the F.A.Q. and twice the thanks for reading the F.A.Q. before posting a question already answered in it.

Is this the Roman mod that has the excellent Roman military camp added to it where you can walk around and stuff? Its been a while since I played it.And any way testudo formation will be added too for singleplayer?
Vitallion: Legionaries salute your new centurion!
The Romans cheer for Marius Titus.
Vitallion: Rome is civilization. Rome is order. Rome is power. And out here, we are Rome!

Yes, this mod has a Roman Castra that functions as a settlement for the Roman faction. As for the addition of the testudo function to SP, they may eventually add it as a command/order at some point, though this is just my guess since it hasn't really been talked about.

Hope you'll join the community again when it updates. :^)

That's awesome to hear!! I shall download it again since I haven't played it ever since. Man this is one of the best Roman mods besides Imperia. I can't wait to command my legion to form testudo haha!! I'll definitely check back when the next update arrives.

I agree, the time period also allows for a lot of other interesting factions to enter the fray such as the Diadochi, Italic Tribes, Gallic Tribes, etc.

People still normally gather on the server randomly, and some clans are still up and about waiting for the next update, so if you're looking to play MP feel free to post on the forum and hopefully some people will join you!

Two years actually. It's not like we're willingly holding back the release, we've just underestimated the work required and didn't have enough time to finish it. I'm considering releasing an open test version before a stable 2.55 release as soon as I finish polishing and fixing some things.

I for one open test version to be released soon. It's the best way to find any improvements before the official release comes out.

Only the ones saying "Where update me mad!"* get downvoted. Just nicely asking shouldn't be downvoted at all in my opinion.
