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We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames.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

People use the incredibly flawed Total War: Rome 2 as a historical reference? LOL

And before that some people used the first as a reference, there is a huge leap of effort considering the accuracy from the first to the second but a fair amount of mistakes remain.
The message was mostly targeting the "Make faction X like in RTW II!!" people.

I'm honestly surprised that people uses vanilla Rome and Rome 2, but they don't even mention Roma Surrectum 2 as a reference.

Very few people have reported that issue which is just plain weird, nobody in the team had any issue with it, ranks are gained just fine. Are you running latest version (1.160) ?

Forgot to log in last time. I assume I am, I have M&B on steam so updates download automatically, so I think it probably is 1.160

I'll have a look but I can't fix a problem I can't recreate, try to start a new character and enlist in the Roman army just to be sure if it's a widespread error or if I forgot to finish a faction ranking.

I know this is probably written somewhere,but can you,please,tell me will the single player mode be finished? I mean i like the mod as it is,but it would be nice if you finished the SP mode in total, i mean seriously half of the map is missing,not rushing you or anything here,just wondering and asking.

Some things take time, we are not working on it all the time, we have jobs/studies to attend to and it eats up most of our time. Still we're making good progress but one step at a time.

I'm not troubled by anything, I just said that I'd love if you'd add them. That's all.
