    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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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.
  6. 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,...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...

    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...

  11. 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.

  12. 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...
  13. Re: Am I the only one excited for this game?

    How about the unit limit? And the province limit? And the faction limit? Where were the mod tools for Rome 1, or M2TW? The modding summit? The mod awards?

    There is a difference between being less...

    Re: No world map? why?

    The only way a world map could work is if it were modular. Similar to how Crusader Kings 2 recently added the entirety of India into the game.

    Each one fleshed out like a full game, then added...

    Isn't religion wonderful?

    You can't represent it's historical past in fictional, digital media without fear of severe backlash at best.

    I don't think I've ever even seen the AI exchange regions in any game except ETW.
  18. Re: Concerning the trading of regions.

    I've never seen any issues like this in Empire, but I have also never played it without mods.

    But I do not think this issue would be as prevalent in Rome II or Attila. In Empire, there was barely...
  19. Re: get rid of mandatory generals in custom battles?

    I have not noticed a significant reduction in small stacks. The AI usually builds one or two large armies, and then just recruits generals with a few militia units until it runs out of army slots.

    Re: 40 unit stack option in TWA

    The problem is that more men in a unit, and eventually, more units in an army, will actually break the game.

    Re: 40 unit stack option in TWA

    That's not how it was in FotS though. It was regular 20-unit stacks. You could reinforce with another 20-unit stack to have 40 units total in a battle, but you can do that in Rome II as well.

  28. Re: Fort (with upgrades) and the passes (gates) through mountains in TW ATTILA

    Empire had the best forts. They took time to build, had names, and could be upgraded to different levels. If Empire's sieges weren't so damned broken, they would have been great.
