In this mod, I will be looking to overhaul the vanilla game, step by step. This is a beta WIP and I intend to have a release after each stage or version is completed. New units, features, regions, and gameplay from multiple mods and communities awaits!

Post feature Report RSS ahowl11's Vanilla Enhancement Mod v9 - Rebels & Mercenaries

In this edition, Rebels and Mercenaries get more of a selection, the map has many path finding issues solved and some bugs are fixed!

Posted by on

It has been awhile since I released Nomads on the Horizon. Life endeavors and responsibilities definitely take priority sometimes. In this release, I mainly focused on the Rebels and Mercenaries. However I also gave a lot of attention to the AI and it's expansion patterns. There are many path finding issues in vanilla that have been fixed thanks to a very thorough research thread on totalwar.org also some bugs with the Nomads have been fixed and a few scripts were fixed and added.

Asturias

Spain Can now have a more direct line of attack to Numantia

Units:

I have added 19 mercenary units and 17 Rebel units to the map. This adds the same amount of diversity to the game as in v8 when I added specific units to each faction. This should conclude the reskins that seem reasonable to include in the game. However I might still have a few in the future.

DOWNLOAD AND INSTALLATION:

DOWNLOAD HERE


- If you have an old HRTW version, you can try overwriting, but to be safe, delete it as this will not work with it. This version isn't save compatible.

- One thing that I need to be clear on, is this mod runs on the Alexander.exe not the regular Rome Total War exe. Please make sure you use an Alexander Install.


- To Install, simply extract HRTW into your Rome Total War Directory, or if you use steam, your Rome Total War Alexander Directory. when making a shortcut, use the Alexander.exe or in steam go to Launch options and include this: -show_err -mod:HRTW -noalexander


IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS, NOTHING WILL WORK!
