Introduction

Hi all . We all hated how ugly vanilla BI looked . So one day, i decided to enhance it's looks with units from an old russian mod, Pax Barbarica . Now, with this mod, all units look cool and pretty and also it fixes various other things and enables some other things . Hope you all enjoy this mod for BI .

Main Features

- Enhanced looks for pretty much all units
- New units for factions with limited rosters ( Saxons, Berbers, Celts ) and for all factions too .
- All factions available for playing in campaign map, with it's faction map in selection screen, faction leader icon and faction description .
- Officers and standard bearers for all units including mercenaries and rebels
- Pantheon for Paganistic Temples .
- Lost skins inside BI folder finally will find a use , Skins for saxons, celts,nomads etc .

Installation

1. Unpack content of the archive to your Rome - Total War folder. A folder bi-vanilla-mod will appear inside your game folder, near EXE file. It won't interfere with any of vanilla files and will not overwrite anything. This is a modfolder required for mod to work. It needs BI 1.6
2. Either just run the Executable.bat from inside bi-vanilla-mod folder, or make a shortcut manually for RomeTW-BI.exe on your desktop, right click for Properties and add the following to the end of the "Object" field:
-show_err -mod:bi-vanilla-mod

FAQ

Q: What do i need to run this mod ?
A: You need RTW Barbarian Invasion 1.6.


Q: Will there be a second release?
A: No, this mod is done .

Q: Can i do a sub-mod for this mod and release it to the public?
A: You can make a sub-mod for your own personal use, but you are not allowed to release it to the public.

Q: Why this mod has vanilla colours and it's not historicall accurate ?
A: This mod enhances vanilla looks and fixes some things in the gameplay . We didn't wish for it to be more historically accurate, just more fun to play .

Q: Why the map hasn't been changed and it's the same, old, boring map ?
A: I'm not a mapper, so i couldn't do much . Also i worked, mostly alone, without a team .

Q: Why you didn't use the BI mundus magnus map ?
A: This would make the Sassanids go on a rampage and be overpowered .

hey, could you please help specify with "horde min units" not supported? I've been reading the comments, so I know there is a solution, I just don't know how to find it- sorry for taking up time

Hey, loving the mod, this is exactly what i was looking for, a mod that keeps with the vanilla feel but it doesn't feel like a huge overhaul. Just a suggestion/question: Would it not be possible to mod the romano brits into the main campaign by making them an ally or vassal of WRE, you know just to justify them being there in the beginning, because their roster is awesome and I wish to conquer the map with them ;)

Dear Crazyroman and Lanjane,
Me again here with only good compliments;)
I really like the foederati look nicer and have an axe! The romans in the west looks nicer too! For the upkeep i'm happy it went down, cause i love vanilla simple style with huge armies, fast replenisent, not too complex economy ( cause also after work i dont have much time, so i like fast battles and simplicity).

@Crazyroman: I believe the W Romans beign stronger lies in the lower upkeep( which i love by the way as i said above).

Thank you and keep up with the good work! I'm a fan of you guys now;)

Wai to g for hellenistic legacy new patch:)

Happy holydays and good health!

Hi, very nice mod, nice units . I know this is only reskin of units in game BI, but i would like battles last longer, vanilla battles are to short. I would ask you can you make changes on EDU (export_descr_unit) only separate patch for those who enjoy longer battles. Thanks you in advance :)
