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We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames.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

Patches will be released when they are ready, not a moment sooner, not a moment later. We wish to provide consistent quality and significant updates. We are working as fast as we can, but we can't provide accurate estimates as to how long it takes to creat an update, though as always the next patch will be worth the wait.

Hi,i love this mod and great respect on its creator,your hard work and research in order to achive historical accuracy is apparent and awesome so i won't say anything else and go on with my question.
I would like to ask if somehow is possible for me (so you dont waste your time) to add more cities and villages to the map or change to an different map,the map from "The Pelloponesean War mod"(another great mod but for a different period with an really good detailed map) and then manually assign each city to a faction?
I tried to search for tutorials but to no vein.
I want to do that since this is what i believe the weakest part of this otherwise awesome mod.Since i am Greek and really enjoy playing as a hoplite i would love to add more cities to Greece.
So please reply.Thanks for your time!

While it is not impossible it would be in no way practical and prone to errors since most of the new locations rely on scripts to work properly and might not function well with locations added to an already compiled module. Changing the map should be the easiest task but I don't have the time to make step by step tutorials about that. In my opinion it's more trouble than it is worth.
In the future there will be more locations to visit and hopefully with new scenes and our own map, we are stuck with this one for now.

Ok thanks a lot for the reply!
I understand so i was hoping it might be something easy but i see it is more coplicated.
So i shall keenly await any further updates!
Something unrelated whrn i am using the shield and dory overhanded does the shield completely cover the part of the body it is in front of because some hits that should be blocked look like passing threw(but i am not 100% sure)
Anyway thanks for your time and your reply!

There is no passive melee defence for shields in Warband, it can protect you from missiles when not actively defending but not from other attacks.
