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We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames.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

To add to my previous comment,ive noticed that with the Gauls, that when fighting in their army, when fighting the Romans, they wont charge, and only attack when the enemy army finally charges

AMAZING mod! But I find it empty outside I think it would be cool that because of that you might consider making a system that the nations can colonize more land by making forts that become cities. Or that the factions like the Greek city states be divided into Sparta, Athens, Thebes etc. thank you for considering. :)

There's quite a lot of scripting involved around city/castle behavior and I don't think the game would handle it well if some were added post compilation since faction objectives, lord behavior, trade, merchants, scenes, patrols would have to be updated frequently to take into account these new places. It's more pain than gain in my opinion. It would do well for a mini mod but you can forget it for a total conversion.
At this particular time there were two major Greek leagues, the Corinthian League (Corinth, Athens, Thebes, Argos, etc...) and the Aiatolian League as well as Independent city states such as Crete, Rhodes and Sparta (which later formed the Achaean League). At this point I don't think separating them would be beneficial.

Then why not atleast make the separate leagues?

Just did some playing! Single player of course. Love the look of everything ive seen so far.

I have noticed a bug though. The major one is in the northern Italian maps during battle, there will be a field that has a bridge over a deep valley. For some reason, the armies never attack each other :( Have to retreat and restart it to get a different map. Playing as a soldier in Brennus's army there. And a small bug, the bards and guild masters still call the land Calradia

And may I suggest in a future version, to cut the map down some? Its too big and empty, and I figure that takes up RAM or something. I'd say cut it down to Britain down to North Africa, and Spain to Western Anatolia for the time being :)

Also, I think that in the future, splitting some groups into multiple tribes might be a good idea. In the Europa Barbaroum mod for Rome Total War, for example, the Gauls are two different factions.

Hope ive been of some help, and keep up the good work! Looking forward to giving the Romans a good old barbaric asskickin!

SP have been for quite a long time implemented in the mod,
but we many times pointed that what you see today in SP is just a small progress in what it might look in the future
so at the moment we calling it an alpha version of SP

Just got the mod, looks good. Im taking it that the plan is to create factions to fit in everywhere? Like Germanic tribes, Dacians, British?

Keep up the good work, hope it gets completed in a grand epic..completion. Maybe even have War Elephants for some Carthaginian fun! :P

I thought propio to those in the photo, I think that the Romans had armor similar to those of the Sunnis in the beginning, thank you you for your kind answers :)
