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We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames.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

Hey are you guys going to eventually separate the Greek city states and maybe add the city of Halicarnassus Pergamon and Rhodes to be included in the possible separate greek world in a near future?

Eventually yes, I'd like to include the Aetolian League in the near future. Pergamon was under Lysimachus's rule, Halicarnassus was mostly destroyed during Alexander's campaign and I'm uncertain on how to treat Rhodes even if it was fairly relevant in the third century B.C. it's still a small-ish island.

So i was curious for a long time now, but why do you insist on working on "Multiplayer" aspect of the mod, when the server is always empty and no one plays it. Why not focus on "Singleplayer", a part that everyone actually wants?

No disrespect of course, simply curious.

You do realise that you're wrong, right? As in, objectively wrong.

Single player started as my personal project with no real scope or ambition but to continue a previous mod. After a few updates the other members started backing it up a little further and now it's mostly what we are working on but we still keep Multiplayer updated.

Play with the "load textures on demand" option ticked in the launcher. Else try this fix:
Download the file and put it in the resource folder of your RaW 2.5 mod files.
