omg that campaign of yours should just be getting started. The goal is to conquer the sassanids territory up to india.
Yeaaaaaaah, but this time-without cheats!omg that campaign of yours should just be getting started. The goal is to conquer the sassanids territory up to india.
nah, I was clever:
1-I consolidated Arabia, which took less than 10 turns. I always sack the cities.
2-I waited about another 10 turns to raise money, and then shrink, and professionalize the army.
3-I attacked the Romans, while allying with Persia.
4-capture bucket loads of territory as a result (I usually out manuevre the enemy, rather than fight them directly). I actually video-recorded one of only 3 battles I fought with the romans in the open field, and took pictures of another; both should be over at the IJ formum.
5-use the loot/new revenue to buy persian territory (by formal purchase, not bribery). yes, I bought the persian territory required.
and no, I only have to go to Susa, not India.
also, its not that short: its 100 turns worth of material, as I'm playing with the 4tpy script. I played vanilla, and beat it (by a wide margin), in the same period.
no cheats required. I did however edit the battle map movement modifiers, as I did with EB1, for realism and added difficulty. (I basically raised the movement points from 80 ro 260.)

other than that, the enemy won't just charge for your capital. it will still try to get your border towns first, before moving inwards.

the approx distance from Antioch to Jerusalem is ~ 300 miles. with a 20 mpd rate, it'd take 13-14 days of marching continuously. since a turn in 4tpy is 3 months, assuming forced marching at that rate, an army can theoretically cover ~1,800 miles a season. which means that if I adjust for that, the romans could near the Iran-afghanistan border in that time, starting from jerusalem. of course in practice, fatigue, battling, camping for extended periods to rest, etc, would probably reduce the pratical distance to less than that.
as yet, the movement points I used aren't sufficient for such a feat; they can only march about half the distance, closer to 1,000 miles.
Can you tell me how to change those movement modifiers?Originally Posted by Gen.jamesWolfe
