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We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames.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 guys just wanted to ask is the single player mod going to cover all the factions from the peloponnesian war mod, or is it a different time frame that mod is really good but the author never finished it thanks.

Different timeframes, some of the factions are shared but on a different point in history.
This might be the closest you might get to the Peloponnesian wars just 60 years earlier:

It's beyond me as to why this mod hasn't become a very popular mod (most people still think Romae Bellum, the mod where pre-Imperial Romans wear Segmentata and everything is an OSP, is the best mod for the Republican era).

romae bellum has some of my not OSP items to.
The problem with ppl is that they like more illusions than the real things.

Maybe with the next release, it was to my understanding that not so long ago there was an issue with workshop mods and multiplayer, hopefully it has been sorted now, if not, we'll try to add it to the workshop anyway and keep providing mirrors if it stops people from playing in servers.

I was just reading over the mod description and I saw that you wouldn't add square scutums, segmentatas, and corithian helmets. Out of curiosity, what's wrong with those items?

Anachronistic items, or out of time if you prefer. They are as far away from our timeframe as what the Napoleonic Wars are to automatic gunsand we like to stick to history as much as we can. There are other mods with different timeframes that allow themselves to be a bit less fixated on this, so you've got enough choice if you search a bit.

Thanks for the response, I have no issue with the ban on those items, I was just curious on why. Also, about the other mods, I haven't found one about rome nearly as good as this one so I'm good.
