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We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames.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

So rgcolt i couldn't find an answer on the forum so i'm gonna ask here, just be aware that i'm not trying to flame or make you angry, i simply don't understand...

Anyway the question is, why won't you include the typical Corinthian helmet(one that protects the face and the head)? I can understand not wanting Lorica Segmentata and Square Scutums because they were not from that time frame, but why not the helmet? It was used up until the 1st Century AD!

well modification known as "apulo italo or etrusco corinthian" was used till the 1 st century AD!

but original corinthian helmet you want were changed ages ago by chalcidian and illyrian helmets.

descrition of the corinthian helmet = it has low visibility and it has no ear cuts, so human who wears it is blind and deaf

Sure, when you put it like that it makes sense, but still why are you so against it when so many people requested it with all their hearts ?

It doesn't create any trouble for you guys at all because you already made the helmet, all you gotta do is make it fit the whole head instead of just the top. You don't have to include it for troops or anything like that, a simple player only item bough at the store is enough.

Well that's all i wanted to know, otherwise i enjoy your mod very much, keep up the good work :)

well as we mention corinthian helmet is to much outdated for this mod and our point is to make mod with is as much as possibile historically accurate.
Try to understand it is not mod based on a "hollywood" movie.
we dont making items with are from future and we dont making items with are 300 years out from our timeframe.
