As somebody who plays a lot of mods for online custom battles there are two things that stand out which for me defines a great mod from a good mod.
One of the biggest reasons why people don’t play a particular mod is compatibility. I am referring to the map.rwm file. I don’t know enough about it to tell you why it happens but there are some mods out there where it’s not an issue and some it is an issue.
The other thing I would like to talk to you about is the General unit. Some mods don’t include any General unit in their order of battle (in other words no F-key to try and rally troops for particular factions.
I also have a request; would it be possible to examine the possibility of there being at least two types of General units for any one faction to pick from. I would like to see one mounted on horse or some form of conveyance and one on foot just to give players an option. Obviously the special rally ability for both.
Was there any thought put into the amount of custom maps that will be available to choose from?
As a side note I think it’s going to be a phenomenal mod and could you post something on YouTube when the graphics are set up for the Roman for throwing the Plumbata under hand. Very cool!
