If you chaps wouldn't mind, I would like you to PM me the UI folder with all its components. Tinkering with your mod ATM, and just want to fix a few small errors in there.
Also! Had a question about your map!
Is there any particular reason why you aren't putting a few of the other Greek cities in there? (Corinth, namely)
Loving the mod so far, and if you guys want to balance out the battles a bit more, there are two routes to it:
1) Higher combat values for all things. So, instead of an attack of 9 and defence of 12 (for a normal unit, lets assume) make it 18 and 24. Put up against another unit of the same values, it will take a while for the battle to play out.
2) Give each unit 2 HP, but keep the same low values for the EDU. This ensures that units will take slightly longer to die.
For each of those options, the General's Bodyguards must always have a higher HP count than the other units.
Once I get to a point where I am satisfied with the EDU, I will post it for you guys to check out.
P.S: I'm also working on a little mod within a mod. If things work out, I will also let you have at it.
other greek city's are a good Idea, but they were not so famous and strong in military like athen,sparta and makedon.
besides the ROP team will not put any new factions in V3 as they told me.
I wasn't asking for Corinth as a faction, just as a city. It was an influential figure of the time, and has always been the major trade area in Greece.
If it isnt possible, I may just have to take matters into my own hands.
cool , I hope some the small problems as well in V3.
like : "lonia dominating lydia, kyrin don't dominating the kamet"
I have heard that they will change the persian G Bodygaurds which is very awesome.
but I was wondering IF they are going to change the G bodugaurds for other Iranian factions as well or not????????
Taken care of"lonia dominating lydia, kyrin don't dominating the kamet"
Probably not, unless Rez finds some historical excuse to do sobut I was wondering IF they are going to change the G bodugaurds for other Iranian factions as well or not????????
I'm interested to see how stuff works out
When it isn't "RoP" enough, we won't use it, and when it is, we will.
Part of the balancing process is figuring out a good unit ratio.
The Eastern factions didn't typically have heavily armoured infantry, and leaned more towards variants of cavalry, and mass groups of lighter infantry.
While the Greek factions may have superior quality, quantity CAN win a battle.
I simply wanted to pitch in with some battle balancing.
Besides, I personally LOATHE watching 20 of my strongest hoplites running away from 30 Sparabara and a few horsemen. A weeee morale boost could do those chaps some good.
Maybe then only 3 or 4 will have the sense to run for their lives.
I still think you guys should give the medians better cavelary advantage over the persians.
since the medians were more cavelary baced.
but that's also up to you love the mod so far
one of the most awesome thing about the mod is that you guys get all the names right:
Kurosh which is called cyrus in english.
and his to sons kambujie and bardia which is also called some thing els in english how do you guys get all this names in persian, is there any persian in you team????
you have also made some small mistakes in the unit name :
Takabara = Tabardaran = "tabar" means axe and "daran" means berres = axe berrers.
IF you guys want to be more correct the famous Iranian tribe that lived in the south of cospian sea and the north of the Alborz mountains which was famous for their axes were named "Tabarestanians" the Tabarestanians was rebels and didn't payed any taxes to the persians or medians before Cyrus the great. but after since the guy that took care of cyrus and after he was send out of the castel to be killed was Tabarestanians they served the Persian empire during the rule of Kurosh and later became one the most Important element in the persians army. yeah they were not well armored but was fearless worriors
Sparabara = Spardaran = "Spar" means Shield and Daran is the same = Shield berrers.
thvankabara = thirokamandaran = "Thir" means arrows "Kaman" means Bow and daran is the same = Bow berrers
Asabari = Asb Savaran = "asb" means the horse "Savaran" means riders = horse riders
this is just the persian versions for the unit names . I thought it may become usefull since u guys are trying to name the units after how they historically was.
wish the orginal RTW was that direct, I mean Armored camels what were they thinking LOL

I'm thinking of skinning out the cuirrass on the Ionian and Dorian hoplites; those guys represent the "main" body of citizens, they didn't have those fancy (and darn expensive) muscle cuirasses. Most of them had greaves, a shield, a spear and if they were lucky a bronze helmet.
Every time I try installing this mod, a shortcut appears on the desktop, but when you start the game from there it goes to vanilla RTW. Also, there are no ROP files in the root directory. Please help, I would love to play this mod.
Torrent link goes to a 404 from "HostGator" and the other link downloads an exe that apparently isn't a valid win32 application.
Edit: the non-torrent mirror worked second time round, my bad sorry
