    Re: AI bonus

    According the handicap tables on the normal setting, the human, in some cases, actually has the advantage, not the AI. It isn't until you play hard that the majority of the advantages switches to the...

    Re: Submod Request: Less money

    Both is certainly possible.
    The point is not necessarily to have "epic" battles, but to reduce the silly small scale skirmishes that you must endure in order to fight more real battles. Moreover,...
  3. Re: Total War: Attila might be the prequel to Medieval 3

    I own one Paradox game (Victoria Series). It has a deep learning curve. I do not believe CA's Total War series is meant for a sophisticated audience. I would not think they will ever develop a game...

    Re: Naval Battle Mecanics - Darth Mod 8.1

    I would highly recommend you post this within the Darthmod forum, as the developer of the mod would be able to answer your question more precisely.

    You are referring to esprit de corps. There were certainly units that developed such a morale, however, these sorts of units were limited in number.

    Re: Why do so many people love Sparta ?

    What is the relevance of this? That Athens were so morally corrupt that we do not have a choice but to be Spartan lovers?



    By far the best answer!
    um... hum,... better than this

    Re: Line Infantry charges

    Best to use a mod that create a more realistic battle mechanic. Its ironic that a game genre that supposed to "emphasize" tactical battles is the one main area where it is most deficient.

  26. Re: Which kingdom or empire had the highest rate of regicide?

    Sure, you can direct the discussion to a reasonable resolution or choose to let the thread be an open debate.

    Ok, I misunderstood you!
  27. Re: Which kingdom or empire had the highest rate of regicide?

    Inconsistent reasoning: Chinese dynasties were separated by long periods of disunity. Moreover some were different groups of people (Yuan- Mongol | Jin and Qing- Manchu or Jurchin)

    ???
    There are two common solutions
    1. Set a minimum
    2. create category based on longevity of the "civilization"

    In this discussion the, "1st" would be the best route to take.
