Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Will you add faction X ?
A: We're not making any promises concerning upcoming factions, we follow our planning and eventually new factions are done.

Q: Will you add X item ?
A: If it fits our time frame then we will most likely add it as long as it is relevant, if it doesn't then we won't.
Items we won't do:
- Square Scutums
- Segmentata
- Corinthian Helmet
Stop requesting these please.

Q: Faction X is so OP/UP (overpowered/underpowered)!!!
A: That's not a question. Also we tested everything against everything in multiplayer a dozen times already and as far as I'm concerned it's relatively balanced. It seems to work decently in SP too so if all you have is one random empiric occurrence where you got your ass handed to you that won't be convincing of a faulty balance.

Q: Is the mod dead?
A: No.

Other things worth mentioning:
We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames. We do have a planning for what we are doing (most of the time) so there is no point in suggesting to us what our next move shall be. Thank you for reading the F.A.Q. and twice the thanks for reading the F.A.Q. before posting a question already answered in it.

Best 3rd century mod by far there is nothing like this and the historical accuracy is great wish it was fully fleshed out with minifactions in italy and different gallic tribes, like a bannerlord RaW2

Still have a lot of love for this mod. I hope you guys are doing well, I understand the time it takes to spend days doing what you do even out of what spare time you all have. I've followed you guys for years as (Sethan) but forgot my password after a long break from moddb. I wouldn't have learned as much as I have, or have had the drive to mod if it wasn't for you guys. 5 years ago, For 2 years I added content to Rome at war2 just for fun not to make updates for you guys. Not weapons or armor because to me the gear is perfect. I made tweaks to weapons for multiplayer, weapon mode switching for spears, and certain swords. I had made new models but scrapped them, and decide to just transfer models from Viking conquest, and work on new textures for them, retaining some of the old textures as well though. As for this ridiculous late roman kick everyone is on, I'm not digging it, they may have watched too much Spartacus and Gladiator. But hey everyone has a right to his or her own opinion right? The time period you have set for this is more interesting than late roman period of times after study. Keep up the great work and do what you can! I uploaded 4 photos dedicated to you guys with two of my favorite scenes I made a few years back.

Thanks. The Imperial Rome era certainly has enough coverage so there was not much incentive to just add yet another mod covering the same subject. This timeframe is more interesting with Rome being a power on the rise, the variety of cultures that normally don't get much exposition and the overall political state of the Mediterranean while we attempt to make it as authentic as we could.
It's unfortunate that the mod will never reach its potential as development was plagued by unfortunate events and small issues that piled up over the years. It wasn't all bad of course and made for a good learning experience. I sincerely hope I can at least deliver one last update and reach the rest of the team to make the mod Open Source so it might benefit others but at the very least the source code will be available.
