  1. Sticky: Re: DVK901's work on custom settlements,THE PICTURES

    Do not also forget that there has been a significant amount of climate change over the last 3,000 years - it's not just a 'modern' issue. A review of the settlement mapping from antiquity shows a...

    Re: Poor balance and terrible battle AI

    One sprite <> one man. Unit scaling is in effect. Depending on what size of units you're using 1 sprite ~ 10->50 actual men.

    Or - a full army/stack of 20 units (Roman) represents a full consular...

    Honestly - the old required building trees are indeed in the stickies - it really is worth a good read through before and whilst playing.

    When it comes to what you can build, I assure you that...

    Would like to see if dvk' can comment - for the settlement names are used so much in the scripting that I am fairly sure, from previous posts, that this ^^ is not necessarily a good idea. You're...

    It's not something I specifically looked for in my studies for an amateur thesis I may still finish......

    However, I believe there is some supportive evidence. Try the 'Roman Army Talk' forum.

    Re: Problem with AI

    The AI does build roads; but they are not a priority in the AI's eyes. If you play 'slowly' (ie thinking of playing for 400+ turns) then more will appear.

    Realistically - plain and common materials -> bleached in urine (pretty common too:yes:) -> off-white and scrubbed a lot -> simply standard leading to 'uniformity', but still the cheapest.

    Re: RS 2.6 Feedback - Too Easy?

    Firstly consider a 'house rule' on spies - only use them to 'Spy' out the land - forward watch towers, effectively. Don't use them to open settlement gates.
