Carac Caratacus--for his British Isles changes and bug hunting
aqd and Spirit of Rob--I'm not using any of their units yet, but they said I could and I do appreciate that
The RTR VII team for assistance and advice. And units, which I'm going to be stealing in ridiculous numbers shortly.
KLA--non-stop unit awesomeness
The Variagmod Team--awesome Thracians and Dacians, of which I'm using many
Arbaces--Dacian units and info
LaCa--some great units
Seasoned Alcoholic--instructions on how to do different battering rams for everyone
Iskandar--Not only showing me what I should be doing, but doing it himself while I was gone
Caligula Caesar--mapping, units, and general good modding advice
Antonov--hard work and good modding advice
Pannonian--for helping with some tech support issues in an expert manner and convincing me that the Levantine economy was seriously overpowered
Forum regulars--good discussion
Everyone who helped people in the ExRM forum with their bugs and questions--this community wouldn't be much of anything without you
We'd like to thank...
-V.T. Marvin for the Spoils of War Micromod. It's a great addition to the ExRM.
-Caldarium for his text editing in general and the the Greek Colonies Micromod in particular. Now Greeks can properly colonize stuff.
-Arnold Legion, V.T. Marvin, Solaris, Caldarium, Grythius Avalorius, and Emperor Domitianus for beta testing.
-DimeBagHo (of the XGM) for his forced diplomacy script
-the EB Team for letting us steal their "Unit Size Script" idea.
-Marcus Camillus (and, indirectly, the RTR Dev Team) for the new strat map tiles
-BladeRunner900 for the great new loading screens and the Tarentine cavalry info pic
-King Louise Asshurbannibal for even more really cool units
-Florin80 and Salvor Hardin for the new revolt CTD fix
-Monkwarrior, MMF, and the ITW team, for the Tarentine Leukaspides.
-HouseofHam, for streamlining the 4tpy script
-Everyone in the forum thread for great discussion and ideas
And, of course:
Thank you to the RTR-PE 1.9 team for the excellent new release.
-Wien1938, whose work on phalanx units was the backbone of the phalanx updates in this release.
-Sinhuet contributed his excellent formations.
-Thanks to the people who worked on a now-lost RTR Forum thread about the behavior of General's cavalry with varying numbers of HP...I'd cite you if I could find you, guys.
-This update was a team effort start to finish.
-Quinn Inuit organized it and replaced the Senate faction with Epirus, refusing to let his complete lack of modding ability get in the way of finally getting to play as Epirus.
-Iamphet stepped up and did most of the actual hard modding work, integrating the ExRM Promethean edition with RTR-PE v1.8 and consistently meeting any problem with skillful coding and clear thought.
-AndarielHalo, Goddess of Absolute Physical Perfection, channeled the ancients of Epirus to do a lot of great unit R&D. The Epirote Faction is much more well-developed for her work, and any weakness in it should be laid solely at the feet of Quinn (who wasn't always able to implement her unit ideas).
-Sheep came in and did stand-out beta testing (which mostly consisted of chasing down Quinn's screwups), and then went above and beyond in his impressive rewrites of several key files, notably Export_Units. He also slightly altered the 4tpy mod to allow Romans to continure building military experience while consul.
To CA for making a great game.
To the RTR team, for making a great mod. They did and continue to do truly trailblazing work.
To the RTR-PE team, for taking that mod to the next level.
To Candelarius (Yakaspat), for making the Extended Realism mod. It really fulfills the promise of RTRE.
To Marcus Camillus, for the 4tpy mod and his continued contributions to the RTR community
To tQst, for making Epirus a possibility.
To King Louise Asshurbanipal, for a bunch of great skins.
To everyone who pitched in advice and suggestions, or who wrote great modding guides (too many to list)
Original thanks, by Candel:
