Description

18+ Players Only. This is the Rev 63 of series 8.x release, excluding release 8.3. This file is mod-foldered and it uses 7z compression. Actual space uncompressed is about 2,203MB. Please read the read-me folder to follow through on installation instruction. It is recommended that the user has more than 3GB of memory to run this mod plus a compatible higher performance video card. And uses Rome:Total War/Barbarian-Invasion RTW/BI Anthology or later, as is available through purchase online from Steam. The 8.4E Release has resolved the long compatibility issue with older game engine/patches or graphics card with slow interface or less pipeline buffer. It also added greatly optimized LOD files to allow tens of thousands of forces all on one field

Are you using Windows 10?

No matter which OS platform, the "nudity" mode has always been working on all platform. So the only thing I can think of is the file linking process.

The new release has been published in "Family Friendly" mode (still in Beta, so please assume all risk of using it). To switch to the original anthropological mode, please run the utility "activate original anthropological mode, ie nudity.bat" file at the top of the mod directory after you have installed the Amazons Total War to the RTW-BI directory.

About 8.4E: you write "The 8.4E Release has resolved the long compatibility issue with older game engine or graphics card with slow interface or less pipeline buffer". I have an old computer with Rome TW Gold edition. Some units in this mod are not displayed correctly. For example the Themiskyran armoured general has no face, no feet and something extra in front of her belly. The themiskyran militia archer has no legs. I tried to run the nudity bat as instructed in the readme, but it only gives an error message "access denied". Then I ran it as administrator and it said file not found or something. I copied the 18+ files manually to the data folder, but no help to the "partial body" problem.

you have to copy the descr_unit_model.txt file from the 18+ folder to data. Also the mod runs fine on "older" computers, it is the graphics card. Our test stations ranged from 2007 vintage Windows Vista to Windows 10 game machine. There are only a few graphics cards or their drivers are having issue. Not trying to agonize the makers (nor their fans), I would not list them here.

Nice to see this mod still on going, thank you for all your hard work :). There's a little bit of thing i'd like to ask tough, is the persian armenic immortal guard intentionally made invincible? They seem to had unlimited amount of projectile ammo. Anyway thank again for a job well done. :)

New 8.4E rev16 has latest LOD file optimization so as to allow multiple tens of thousands of troop on a single battlefield and still using the high resolution large format textures on new units with optimum camera speed.

Also supposed to work with most video cards and patches, if installed properly.

I'm having trouble getting this mod to work. i have installed the mod using the read me file in the mod and even looked for how to install videos and when i installed the 8.4E it says something about a Mount error when i launch the game and crashes. i then installed the 1.4e and the game ran with the mod but when i play a match or the campaign it loads a bunch of error codes saying that it cant load models then crashes. i need help as i must have overlooked something or messed up something

Did you run this in BI mode or RTW mode?

The 8.4 only works in BI mode

First of all, thanks for continuing this mod. Also, I have a questions to ask. There is this unit I'm having a bit of trouble with, Ibb.co. It's Field Trap Belt. Is it bug? because nothing I had couldn't defeat it. Not even reducing it number. When I hover my mouse cursor over it on the battle map, it's only show a shadow of it, and it tell me it was spearmen(240). Could you please see to this. Or is there any explanations for it, thanks in advance.

It is not completely without issues and limitation given the game engine.

But it was the oldest implementation of a minefield in RTW

I understand, but maybe they could set the defend's stat a bit lower? Because with the amount of stat it had, it could only be defeated using ballista units, or geothe's units. It can literally take over settlements by itself, even againts full garrison of medium tech army. Because it can be used to carry siege equipment.

We released the unit assuming the problem with this unit is fixed, but it was not. The real problem is the supposedly static , non-movable deployment can actually move, or even chase after other units.

No one has a solution, so we thought we should still have the unit with the release hopefully some highly knowledgeable modder knows a way to do it properly.

It was the geothe/albani amazon horse archer unit and the generals body guard unit.On the campaign map the Gen. bodyguard was missing legs and in the battle map the faces of the units did not show up as well as the bows looked like big swords. The horse archer unit also need not show tha faces.

Anyway I tried the edu-mode and the units are displayed fine. Also tested the libyan amazons and seem to be fine. This seems to be a fantastic mod, though have not played much and thanks for making the mod.

Btw whats the difference between 270 bc and 450 bc modes?
Is the storyline different?

Thanks once again to all the modders.

Our Testers tested the school mode and anthropological mode, and reported both worked fine.

Are you using School mode, Anthro mode, or 16+ mode?

In so few words, 270BC is after Alexander's death and the feud of the Diadochi plus the ascendency of Rome.

450BC is after the Persian defeat at the hands of Massagetae, and the Ionian revolt.
