I think keeping the colors similar gives the (historically correct) impression that these factions are just parts of the greater empire and not separatists.

Good point, thinking about making it optional, providing an additional file with the same colours in the download

Check the description, it's about the faction colours, not the towns.

Oh, Sorry! :-/
But those towns are in there for the release, aren't they?

As for the colours are as they should be.
The problem with the colours you will check them during the night. I've seen mods that have the colours too dark and you can't see them during the night..

Thanks and keep up the great work! :-)

I actually liked the dark-purple of...what was their name? Bastarnae? The guys holding Netindava. Also, why do their lords have Dacian names? These guys were supposed to be an Iranic people!

Some things I've noticed in the new v.1.5 + its patch:
1) You can choose 'Slav' at character creation - Slavs formed as a standalone people in the 8th-11th century, so there couldn't have been any in the 2nd century, in which the game is set.
2) The companions are using the same strings as in vanilla, same goes for the poems you can learn from bards.
3) Again, the guys from Netindava and Panais are strangely Dacian, though they're supposed to be Iranic, Caucasian, or otherwise.
4) Many low-tier items (sandals, tunics, etc.) cost 100+ (denars). While I appreciate it, it's not very realistic, no?
5) What happened to religions? Have they been cut?

Still working around with the item prices, it's pretty hard to get a decent standard for all the items and in comparison with each other. Testing and time will tell in the future how they will end up. In any case, don't expect to much realism here. I'm trying to take a more gamey approach to it.

The religions have been cut as they were part of Brytenwalda. Back then I wasn't really able to make it properly workable as a feature. So I left it out in the new version.

I like it. I would like to see some blue legionnaires and others green (like in Rome Total WWar) i get it that it's not that realistic but for gameplay skaes it's better (in my opinion) to have these distinctions.

Having that is a great idea to show the three different Roman Houses, Julii, Brutii and Scipii.

Exactly! :D ahahaha maybe instead of ROme Galia, Rome Hispania, you could have House Banana, House Evictus, and then Rome only in Italy. This is just an idea

Description

Testing out new colours for the various Roman factions, with that I'm curious to your opinion. The colours are based off the troop clothing colours of the faction itself.

The idea behind this is to make it easier to identify the different Roman factions.

Let me know!
