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We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames.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

With these new instruments that you've done will we be able to use them in single player and will there be troops with instruments that will play the music during the battle or is it just multiplayer?

In Singleplayer there are Musicians that play in taverns, credit goes to Daedalus/Slawomir of Aaarrghh for the code and anims which we modified to suit our needs. I hope to include musicians in battle scenes in the near future.

But will the musicians in the taverns actually play some music and will they have new animations?
And will we be able to buy the instruments?

There are new animations and sounds like the following duduk track made by Theretor:
Buying instruments won't be included before some time, I have some ideas about it but it has no priority right now.

Do you have plans to change all the towns and villages in style greek-Roman and Celtic? You'll add the naval battles? Also it is possible to change the appearance of women (even in medieval clothes). Finally, are there other factions over the Etruscans, for example the Germans and the Carthaginians ? Greetings from Rome ...

Once we do the props we'll do the scenes.
Naval battles once travel by sea is justified as at the moment you would just go from Greece to Italy so they wouldn't occur so frequently so I couldn't be bothered to start that task.
It's possible but of low priority right now.
By over you mean after they are done or geographically on top?
If the first, there will be if things keep going on, maybe after a small revamp of current factions.
