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: 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 .

So anything on the next update? I'm giddy with anticipation. Also are there plans to port this mod over to the remaster? Just asking because I heard that most mods can be converted over.

No, there no plans to move this to remastered. It will require a lot of work, i don't have the pc to do it and i don't like the remastered. Also, yes we planning the update.

To anyone wondering about the "min horde unit not supported" problem on Steam, just:

1) right click on Rome Total War - Gold
2) click properties
3) General < Launch Options
4) copy paste in the launch options textbox "-show_err -mod:bi-vanilla-mod"

it's a common error due to the wrong launcher used. it picks the classic rome total war launcher as default, where the "min horde unit" parameter is not used, so it crash.

Hi there! I downloaded the files - standalone and the patching file - and game doesn't run properly because of the extraction is corrupted and damaged. I'm using winzip. Any suggestion to fix this up? Cheers!

for some reason, when the game starts, the cursor does not move and everything hangs.

I can't get this mod to work I think it has something to do with running the game through steam but I can't be sure.

Now when I try to play BI it just loads up ordinary Rome Total War.
