  1. Sticky: Re: Must admit..

    It seems alright. I haven't given it too much of a try yet, but it seems like an, admittedly well polished and complicated, mod to Rome II. If I believed for one second this was supposed to be the...
  2. Poll: Re: Your impressions

    How do the mixed gender units work? Are there female and male cries in the sound effects, or what?
  3. Sticky: Re: Build a PC for Attila TW / Hardware Recommendations (Currently Updating)

    Im looking to upgrade my rig at the moment, rather than build a whole new one. I only have three gigs of RAM, so obviously I need to get a bit more (Looking at 6-8 just to be good.)

    Right now my...
  4. Poll: Re: Your impressions

    Perhaps a poll should be added?

    "Recommended"
    or
    "Not Recommended"

    For an easy way to get a quick look at the forum's general opinion.
  5. Re: Can 'Strategic' Cavalry Patrols be saved?

    This is a little old, but just for anyone else wondering, Im pretty sure that when a unit runs out of movement points, it cannot retreat from the battle. So if you lose the battle, the entire unit is...

    Poll: Re: AIB DLC? (Arthur in Britannia)

    I would absolutely love to conquer the forests of Britannia with an army of Sidhe.
  7. Re: A note about the Siege Escalation System

    I don't really see the point of it, personally.

    If you're going to wait six turns to siege a settlement, you may as well just wait a couple more turns for them to surrender, then just take it...
  8. Re: Torches confirmed in disappointing siege of Constantinople

    That's not really how it works out in game, though. You can build a farming province, or a military province, or maybe a research province, or an economic province. Or you could be inefficient and...
  9. Re: Rally Point Special - Total War: ATTILA - Special Edition Hunboxing

    Pollen. All that running and the horses kicking up pollen. Absolutely dreadful, I'd be sneezing for weeks.
  10. Re: Torches confirmed in disappointing siege of Constantinople

    How does this work with naval battles? If I recall correctly, that was the main reason for torches in Rome II.
  11. Re: The Evolution of Britannia from Rome: Total War to Total War: Attila in pictures!

    Attila's looks pretty nice, but I didn't like Rome II's map. Not really just for the British isles, but the whole thing.

    My main issue is that it went backwards to the Pre-warscape map system of...

    Barbarians should have to find alternatives to traditional assaults, either through a regular siege of attrition, or somehow luring the garrison away by raiding and sacking settlements and such...

    Re: Got the new PC-gamer today...

    Barbarians took the most powerful city in the Western world by walking through the gates, triggering a magical explosion to destroy the nearby towers, while the thirty civilians wandering mindlessly...
  14. Re: How about a Ragdoll feature for the troops?

    And in computing technology. Battles the size of Total War with the same graphics quality and ragdolls would kill most systems, Im sure.
  15. Re: native languages for all the major factions

    "Other languages than English" = "Gibberish Talks" apparently?

    If you can't tell the difference between Sindarin and ancient Latin, I truly worry for you. Hell, if you can't tell the difference...
  16. Poll: Re: Total War: WARHAMMER officially confirmed!

    I don't like the concerns about balance that much.

    If an army with a lot of flying units attacks an army that is unprepared to deal with flying units, then the latter should be easily beaten....

    Even Shogun 2 had a better encyclopedia, with actual, interesting descriptions at least.

    Re: Why the Richard Beddow hate?

    Beddow's music sounds like it's from a movie soundtrack. Pretty, but not meant to rouse you from your seat, shouting in triumph when your cavalry charge hits at just the perfect moment, in the...
  19. Poll: Re: Total War: WARHAMMER officially confirmed!

    That's precisely the reason it's tired and cliche now. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love Middle Earth and Tolkien. But it's just been done, so many times, over and over and over.

    Just because...
  20. Poll: Re: Total War: WARHAMMER officially confirmed!

    Yikes, they definitely chose incorrectly then.

    Only thing they could have done worse is picked Middle Earth as a setting.

  21. Poll: Re: Total War: WARHAMMER officially confirmed!

    Leving, seriously, you should back out of this before you embarrass yourself further. Your argument is meaningless and all over the place. You literally said, "Warhammer is for stupid children who...
  22. Poll: Re: Total War: WARHAMMER officially confirmed!

    It was a given they were doing a Warhammer game, not a Warhammer Total War. CA do make games outside of the series, sometimes.

    Re: Night lighting in Attila

    I really liked Shogun 2's night battles. They still had the spotlight problem, but it was way less noticeable. On top of that, the effects for night were magnificent.

    It really had wonderful art...

    Re: Guard Mode

    The whole point of guard mode, for me, was that I was able to give attack orders and not have my unit run off after their routing foe.

    Having it be turned off when I give an attack order kind of...
  28. Re: Please bring back the recruitment style of the old Total War games! :(

    I am reasonably certain that one hundred and sixty legionaries are capable of marching from Rome to Syracuse without a high ranking general looking over their shoulder the whole time.

    Questions about RAM

    The title was a trick, I actually have questions about everything ever.

    But let's start with RAM. My PC was built a little while back, probably 2008 or so. I have an Intel core i7 960 CPU, which...
  30. Re: What I want to see before I am willing to Pre Purchase this game.

    I've never understood why CA is so incredibly tight-lipped about their games. Well, honestly, this really applies to most big name game developers. Why are they developing games in secret, behind...
  31. Re: Will the Viking Forefathers replace the Getae/Odrysians as the shock infantry faction? Discussion.

    If they added Sauron to this game I would buy that in a heartbeat. A proper dark lord faction with unique mechanics? Hell yes.

    Lightly armored is not the boring thing. The boring thing is that...
  32. Re: Will the Viking Forefathers replace the Getae/Odrysians as the shock infantry faction? Discussion.

    I way prefer fictional, interesting interpretations of the Dark Ages, opposed to the reality, which kind of just seems like a bunch of people wearing brown tunics and using round shields and spears,...

    Re: Does DEI ever let up??

    Have you tried playing on a lower difficulty?

    Higher difficulties don't make the AI smarter. It doesn't really add challenge, it just adds tediousness, in my opinion.
  34. Sticky: Re: Culture Identity Unitpacks. Main thread and discussions.

    This is probably an annoying question you get a lot, but apart from the few new units, will these reskins work with other mods? I really love the idea of making units look different for each faction,...
  35. Re: Am I the only one excited for this game?

    Tough. Go play those mods then. Total War games are not historically accurate, Im sorry. Rome II was the most historically accurate game yet, save maybe Shogun 2.

    You have said, repeatedly, that...
  36. Re: Am I the only one excited for this game?

    Again, you do not know what you are talking about. Have you read through the Shogun 2 mod workshop? Have you looked at any of the work they have been doing? They have created a basic, functioning map...
  37. Re: Am I the only one excited for this game?

    These definitive, wrong statements are why I am saying you don't know what you are talking about. Again, they added the entire landmass of Korea to Shogun 2, while also keeping the original Japanese...
  38. Re: Am I the only one excited for this game?

    If you want to use Wikipedia for the definition, then either every mod I mentioned is a Total Conversion mod, as they do not fit into any other category on Wikipedia, or there are no Total Conversion...
  39. Re: Am I the only one excited for this game?

    Map editing is not necessary for a Total Conversion. The Great War is a total conversion mod, with no map editing. The Bronze Age Total War is a total conversion mod, with no map editing.

    Map...
  40. Re: Am I the only one excited for this game?

    That's not what a total conversion mod is. A mod set in 20th century Europe is completely different than the base game set in 18th century Europe, even if it uses the same map. Different things can...
