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We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames.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.

Hi, are you going to add late hellenistic units like torakitai or hoplites with thureos?

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes
Seek.n.Destroy Creator

Unlikely as of now but not impossible in the future. The thureo started being used in Hellenistic armies after the Celtic invasion of Greece (later known as Galatians) circa 280 B.C., so 20 years after the starting point of the mod. If we ever reach the point where we have too much time in our hands and start including event/condition related reforms it's a possibility, an unlikely one as we have plenty to do before reaching this point.

only if you can do something

Im sorry for this sounding stupid. But you have listed that you wont do specific items, like Segmentata and so forth. Im not asking you to add this, just wondering why these wont be added and why you dont want to make them?

Im not questioning that you aren't adding them, your mod and you do what you wish with it.
Just wondering why you have decided not to add these, they are some of the most iconic armors and gears for the era and what you instantly think of when people mention "Roman Legions"

Again, not arguing, just genuinely wondering why you have taking this stance in the matter :)
Keep the good work up aswell!

Because it´s a significant anachronism, meaning that it's out of time as it wouldn't be invented/used until 300 years past the starting date of the mod. The mod itself starts right before Rome's first major expansion into Italy, the early republican era Rome is rather different from the Imperial era Rome and still a rather minor faction in Europe. A different era with a different struggle.

Ah, thank you for the answer!

I totally understand now why, I guessed it would have had something with historical timing to do. It would make little to no sence if those things where added in the mix!

Interesting that someone made a mod of Republican Rome and not the Imperial one, how come you made that choice?

Diversity mainly, while it isn't as popular as the Imperial era I find it more interesting on most aspects, there's a large diversity of cultures present, much more variety in military equipment and more wars going on.

Indeed, I like it. Brings something more into the mix than the usual. Thanks for all the answers! Sorry if I bothered you too much.
Seems like people didnt like me asking the initial question haha.
