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We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames.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.

I know, this is not licensed, but I like this mod very much. Many people like the Late Roman equipment. I can only find some good models to add. Although I can do it myself, I can't do as well as you. I can only extract the model of Roman 2 Total War temporarily.

Depends on what you mean with continue.
The current plan is to finish some content and fix bugs from 2.5 for the next release and possibly a patch to fix new potential issues. After that I don't know, I'd like to get permission from the other members to release what we've made as Open Source (non-commercial) so it could benefit other modders.

I added some equipment and soldiers.

Can you please upload the version on a western site, it's almost impossible for me to get it from baidu, since the app doesn't support English. Try megaupload

I noticed and I would normally support submods but sharing content extracted/ripped from a commercial game such as Total War: Rome II is not considered legal in my country and moddb so I can't personally endorse it. Personal use is fine though.

hi, I'm having a problem with your Mod... can u hlp me ?
its showing the following message to me (already in the beginning): ²get_object: failed for mesh_skybox_clear_01², and later (when the game begin) : ² get_objetct : failed for mesh_skybox_sunset_02².

I looked at the mod.ini and it looked okay ( load_resource = skyboxes .
I try to change the skybox images at the Texture file, and yet Nothing has changed (with the skybox problem). The sky is all black.

I would like to emphasize that I have other Mods installed, and they all work fine. This is the first time I see this problem. What did I do wrong ? and how can I solve this? I really would like to play your mod.

That's odd, the moddb version makes no change to skyboxes other than textures. Maybe the files got corrupted, try redownloading the mod.

Otherwise the test version has a new set of skyboxes so you could try if that version works:

hi... I reinstalled M&B and it works now...
I guess I was with some file corrupted, as u said.
