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We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames.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

300 BC romans bigest enemys were the italian tribes who were near like samnites etruscans and celtic italian tribes
carthage are planed but it might take a quite a lot of time till we start doing thems
modeling elephant are not the problem, problem is making it work on game so it acts like elephant and not not as an ordionarry horse

Enjoying the SP so far, great job guys!
Here's an idea, what do you think about adding a sort of a fighting pit, gladiatorial combat in the Roman Colosseum? It'd be cool if defeated by the Romans instead of them making you a prisoner they'd make you a gladiator and you'd have to fight your way to freedom.

How is that Gastraphetes going? I'm quite excited to see what you do with them, especially with their special crossbow.

Sounds like good work anyway, plus based on the amount of posts I have in the Celtic tribes research thread as opposed to the other factions you may have noticed that I am unfortunately a bit biased towards the Celts, so for me hearing that work is being done on the Celts is great news.

Apart from what is already written in the F.A.Q., yes we are but it's a ton of work which we didn't start on yet.
