    Re: OPEN ALPHA release

    Sorry to backtrack a bit, on the spelling of Byzantine names and in the interests of consistency:

    Medieval Latin texts have Nicephorus Bryennius and Joannes (Joannis in the genitive), rather than...
  3. Re: Which faction do you like playing as the most?

    I have mixed feelings about that idea, but probably it is the best way to go. I am partly against it, since we have no fabrics surviving from that period. The styles you have chosen are of Muslim...
  4. Re: "Greek recession is over" - Are we sure about it?

    There is so much money to go around and with the introduction of the Euro there are so many Euros to go around. That is the basic equation. In the end there is that money, unless the European Central...
  5. Re: Which faction do you like playing as the most?

    Much as the Ghorids and Ghaznavids can make a fortune out of sacking the cities of Hindustan, while sending the idolaters to the netherworld, so the Rajputs have a rightful cause in defending their...

    That seems about right. I checked some of the connections to future rulers. Click to enlarge.

    Re: ERE tips

    Whoever chose the music for the various factions did a good job indeed.

    At least in my campaigns, most battles are sieges. Horse archers are probably the worst kind of unit to bring to a siege.

    Andronikos Palaiologos from Wikipedia. His father Georgios was a well known general of Alexios Komnenos and was also Anna Komnena's and Ioannes Komnenos' uncle. Anna Komnena got some of the...
  9. Re: Which faction do you like playing as the most?

    The Khwarezm campaign is certainly a tough one.

    Other than that, part of the excitement in this or any other mod is in getting under the skin of a particular faction and reading on their history.
  10. Re: How to make mongol Ai continue attacking?

    It is not really a bug. If you play one of the Eastern factions it would be near hopeless if the Mongols were any stronger. I think I posted somewhere a campaign screenshot where on lifting the fog...
  11. Re: My Funny and Satisfying Shu Campaign

    Fighting with Zombie generals would be too much fun. I'd be in favour of Havuk's tactic: offer him money. If he will not join your faction and would rather fight to death defending his city, you...

    Nice designs and colours for the new flags and banners.
  13. Re: How to make mongol Ai continue attacking?

    This is not always straightforward to solve. If you use the Gracul AI, it will be about as aggressive as it can possibly be.

    Consider that all factions but yours belong to the AI. The AI is not...
  14. Re: "Greek recession is over" - Are we sure about it?

    I have not read all the posts but it cannot be accidental the south has problems the north does not have. This may not be the fault of an individual, but it is unlikely that in an economic union in...
  15. Re: Advice for the Bohemian Estates

    Most players' favourite factions are their own nationalities, so probably not many Bohemians have heard of our mod.

    This post should have your answer. Check you have the correct path and the mod should launch correctly.

    If not, then some file may be missing for some reason and you may have to re-download...

    The full wisdom on supply is here. As far as the supply wagons go, if you are in foreign land, after one turn of foraging your general begins to acquire bad traits (decreased range and low morale) as...
  19. Re: Austria, Economic Problem?

    There is an economy script that slows down income from trade as your empire grows. This was meant to simulate the fact that a large empire is more costly to run. At some point, the way this script...

    Modding Rusichi?

    Personally, I think the AOR is fine. Perhaps some of the rare tribal units could be made more easily available. If the game is difficult, there is the option to play on easy. There are experienced...

    Since human relations with most AI factions tend to be poor, the AI diplomats' only realistic option available often would be to try to bribe your general or settlement, so no scroll comes up. If the...
