Newest version is THERA: REDUX (Full Release 3).

THERA: REDUX A personal mod of the great mod Thera: TW

This started by adding a few extra unit but it soon became an ongoing overhaul juggernaut.
I've made huge changes across the board but retained the core.

(If you're wondering what THERA is, its a fantasy war mod waged across multiple continents on a vast map involving a ton of interesting Factions. ''Redux'' is my version of that great mod)

THERA:REDUX has:
Romans, Knights, Pirates, Orcs, Vikings, Reptiles, Samurai, Pike and Shot, Gunpowder, Monsters and moarrrrr!

EDIT: A LOT more additional content/features/fixes/tweaks since this was originally posted.
Change logs available in the file posts.

Newest version is THERA: REDUX (Full Release 3)



Tons of new and revamped units from a variety of great mods
All factions revamped to some degree.
Better combat animations (more effective spearmen, no awkward slow shield swing from swordsmen etc)
Better gunpowder unit animation, no double reload glitch (so more effective gun troops)
More emphasised factional strengths and weaknesses
Regional/factional specific mercenary units recruitable in small numbers in many areas
AI more likely to make armies built around their core troops
Changes to unit stats across the board (also taking battle model appearance into account for armour stats etc)
New loading pics, New general bodyguards for some factions, Stronger alliances, More interesting and tougher mini-faction (regional 'rebel') armies, better AI, new powerful 'monstrous' units and much, much more.
Enjoy


P.S
I used a few models from BOTET, Third Age, De Bello Mundi, For King or Country, Battle for the Baltic submod and some others, as well as several defunct/unfinished mods (war of the west, especially), unit packs (Western Unit Overhaul) to update Theras battle models, as well a few personally modded models. I give full credit to their incredible work without which this would not have been possible.

Cheers, give the mod a vote!!

I play this outside of your recommended settings on Hard campaign and Very Hard Battle difficulty with Large Unit sizes.

Do you think having it on campaign difficulty Hard is why the Uruk won't attack me for a long time? I used add money cheats to give them more money and that made several of their big stack armies move to my border with some going into my territory but they still won't attack.

Tahar won't attack a region I conquered from them either, it's like the AI is reluctant to attack you if you have a big imposing army garrisoned in a city/castle city , is this due to my difficulty being on Hard? If it was on VH would they attack?

I don't think THERA REDUX is scripted so well but I like it more than THERA V4 because of the new units and unit face cards. The Uruk faction keeps reverting to rebel and I keep having to go back and redoing a turn so it doesn't do that, they also camp my region near xenatas and never attack or move much even though they attacked it many times before, they go through many turns without doing anything in terms of attacking me more.

Are there usually issues with UI icons?
The common buttons are messed up and glitchy. Any solutions?

Shouldn't be glitchy at all. Never heard of this before. Try changing your resolution in the cfg file, could be a super new monitor thing

is there any way to make the Greek/Spartan minor factions playable?

Looking forward to seeing further updates to this. Have you looked at the Emergent-Minifactions sub-mod at all? Would love to see you guys work together!

Hello there
I want to ask regarding some trouble with the mod that I have as of late. When I open this mod, I always need to wait up to 10 minutes before getting to the main menu. Is this something normal that happens, or is it just my game acting up?
Thanks in advance

I made a threat on TW center. Why is there no Mercenaries? I can't find any.

There are loads of them. Mercs begin to appear after a number of turns, the pools populate as the game goes, rarer mercs take longer to appear, more common appear much more quickly and in greater numbers.
