    Enjoy!

    For rtw gold use the following target line in your shortcut!

    "C:\Program Files\The Creative Assembly\Rome - Total War\RomeTW.exe" -show_err -nm -mod:Sparta

    Highlight the above text exactly, press ctrl + c, then right click on your shortcut, click properties, the target line will already be highlighted so just press ctrl + v to paste the line as your target line.



    or the old zip version...

    NOTE; there is a small glitch where one of the athenian ships is stuck, we will release a file for this soon, but it doesn't affect the game generally. everything else has been tested to oblivion.

    this mod is a community project utilising all the resources of twc and the net generally, it has unique graphics mainly taken from photos put onto the skins to produce a realistic effect. i have tried to keep the file sizes slim where i can but many of the units are high res due to their layout. the spartan kings guard are high res just because i wanted them to be.

    the game has a very aggressive AI and will feature eight greek factions which at first are allied, with the exception of macedon and magna grecia which are both neutral. all of these face a massive persian empire which will not shy away from throwing full stack armies at you. you will need to use your allies well to survive, and also take some of your neighbours regions so as to build bigger armies quickly. both the player and the AI will have a good amount of cash ~ equal to what you usually get in the later stages of the vanilla game. i done this so that the AI wont just build crappy little armies of week units, it will instead build strong armies with elite units in them.

    all armies are balanced as much as i could given the different unit types, they all have at least one elite unit. the spartans can gain control of non spartan units as it captures other greek settlements, the macedonions will get the stronger pike units and elite cavalry in the highest build of the game. whilst the romans will rise from a greek style faction to having its own more familiar units e.g. hestati, triarii and principles, these are the units it rose to glory with. the persians will also later gain its heavy cataphract units, and will start with many unit types including two of the infamous immortals.

    README FOR; SPARTA TOTAL WAR III for rtw 1.5 or BI 1.6

    install;

    extract the zip file to a new folder [or anywhere you put stuff] then copy and paste the file named ‘SPARTA’ [not SPARTA_TOTAL_WAR_III ~that is just the containing folder] into your main rome folder e.g. C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War.


    installation in more detail:

    after install it should look like this - C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\SPARTA ~ when you click on the sparta folder. it should not overwrite your main data folder but should be in that folder.

    if you want the new engines, copy the complete engines folder from sparta and put it in the corresponding folder of you main rtw data directory.

    thats it. enjoy.

    spartan gameplay

    a spartan gamer aims to defeat all comers in an honourable manner. the stronger the enemy the greater the victory!

    we will not:

    >give orders while the game is paused, this counteracts everything the AI is trying to do to win, hence is laim. in real life you would not be able to give orders instantly and especially freeze time and give them.

    >use tricks based on the games inefficiencies, such as layering phalanx units or anything else you can think of which is not the natural way a unit or army would behave.

    >you will not cheat in any way, or suffer a life of laimness.

    >you will not bribe armies or cities.

    >generally; if you think you are doing a neat trick that couldnt happen in real life, you are not! any other kind of trick is good, so fight and win like a spartan!

    WOULD YOU BE TRULY SATISFIED WINNING IN ANY OTHER WAY?_!


    thanks, quetzalcoatl.


    PS. we are looking for experienced modders of all kinds, for future historical mods and/or for mythology total war.
    we are also interested in inexperienced modders who wish to learn.
    we are not interested in time wasters, they will be publically flogged and branded as helots lols.

    cool, hope you enjoy it! it is hard, so watch out for them persians, and although the greeks are all allied, that lasts about 1-2 turns.

    our beta testers keep losing, so that will tell you how agressive the AI is.

    congratz! downloading just one question

    "if you want the new engines, copy the complete engines folder from sparta and put it in the corresponding folder of you main rtw data directory"

    im not sure what are these new engines?

    Default Re: RELEASE: SPARTA_TOTAL_WAR_III

    i did not lose
    was that playing as sparta by any chance? what can i do the spartans have to be strong, perhaps i should have made it take much longer to recruit them. problem then is you get overcrowding, so i guess if you want win play as sparta, if you want a harder challenge, play as scythia or macedon perhaps.

    im not sure what are these new engines?
    hmm i should have said; if you want the new engine skins ~ sorry. i havent yet made any new engines although we may do in the next version.

    you played the harder factions though margio.

    for the release it will be even harder ~ as persia has four extra units that i had forgot to add to the unit roster ~ four hard units too.
